Things I liked:The power of this gun in .25cal is amazing, great build quality and nice fit and finish that Hatsan seems to excel at.
Things I would have changed:Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy, after over 250 rounds the gun started to smooth out but the accuracy was never there. The best group I was able to get out of this gun was a measly 2.5" at ten yards. I'm sure this is due to the way the barrel assembly is made and the fact that this is a MAGNUM Springer.
What others should know:I really wanted to like this gun, and it was great in every category except for the accuracy, and for me thats the biggest deciding factor if I like a gun or not. This gun produced the best groups for me with a very tight hold. It also had a bone jarring recoil that took some getting used to.
Things I liked:Build Quality is good for the price point. Has a lot of power and a great deal of cocking effort to go with it, but that is to be expected. The under lever makes it easer than a break barrel.
Things I would have changed:The length of pull is ridicules. What were they thinking. It makes the gun very difficult to shoot and to get a reasonable eye relief on the scope. The safety is a cheap plastic and doesn't give a great deal of confidence as to what position it is in. Very sloppy, also the safe-fire positions are reversed and are counter intuitive. The 11mm/22mm scope rail is a nice idea, but poorly implemented. It doesn't go far enough back on the receiver and requires the use of higher than necessary rings for the scope bell. It also doesn't have enough slots for a Weaver type mount to make it useful. The Quattro trigger adjustments don't seem to do anything and the pull is very creepy and heavy, the worst in my collection. This design is not a true fixed barrel like the RWS. The barrel floats inside a tube which is fixed. Lockup is at the rear of the barrel and depends on the compression of the O Ring seal of the power plant. The front of the barrel is floating which means the barrel is never in the exact same position for each pellet insertion. This is no better than a break barrel, and in my opinion a very poor design. A fixed barrel air rifle should be just that! The bear trap mechanism doesn't do anything to prevent snap back in mid cock like the RWS system. This is dangerous and can cause injury, about all it does is slow down the reloading process. Make the front sight removable. It obstructs the sight picture in the scope, also a scope cannot be mounted with the rear sight in place
What others should know:This gun shoots patterns not groups. Accuracy is atrocious. Pests have no fear from this rifle compared to my RWS 48 or my Crossman Nitro Venom. It is long and heavy and is difficult to shoot offhand for hunting. The long length of pull makes sighting and handling of the gun almost impossible when swinging up on a target. The supplied sling attachments are a joke. I don't know what sling they think will fit on them since they are too small. Why not just supply studs? The brass knobs on a black rifle look goofy. They should make it all the same material. I am not a happy camper, and I'm thinking that this is going to go back, which is too bad, as I had very high hopes.
Things I liked:Hatsan pellet rifles are well built.
Things I would have changed:I wish Hatsan would put the shoulder strap fixtures on all of their rifles. It would be nice if Hatsan would make parts more widely available here, in the United States. One thing, the reason why being explained in the "What you should know" section, is that, I would prefer a blade type front site and a rear sight with a narrower alignment box. The reason for this is that, in using hard sights on these pellet rifles, the Tru-Glow device and it's retainer are so large that, at 100 feet, the front sight completely overshadows a 3" diameter spinner. This is a problem because the rear sight doesn't have enough adjustment to raise the item being targeted so that it rises to the top of the sighting alignment. It would also be a nice feature if the front sight could be designed so that a standard AR-15 hard sight could be mounted, so an AR-15 rear sight could be used while maintaining the proper front/rear parallelism to the rifle barrel.
What others should know:I currently own the following Hatsan pellet rifles: 125 Sniper in .177 caliber - nitro, synthetic. 125 Sniper in .22 caliber - nitro, synthetic. 1000 Striker in .22 caliber - spring, synthetic. 150 Torpedo underlever in .22 caliber - spring, synthetic. It should be fully understood that these magnum class pellet rifles are not scope friendly. The recoil is so intense that within 100 rounds fired, the internals of any scope I've put on them has disintegrated, in some form or another. I destroyed: 2 Lepers 4-12x30 in 30mm tube. 1 Centerpoint 4-16x30 in 1" tube. 2 Optima 3-9x30 in 1" tube. 1 Beeman 3-9x30 in 1" tube 1 Gamo 4x30 in 1" tube. 1 Remington 4-16x40 in 1" tube. With the Remington 4-16x40 scope, I put exactly 5 pellets thru the 125 Sniper in .22 caliber, when the front lens inside the scope broke lose. On one Leapers scope, the eye-piece started flopping around. On the second Leapers scope, the illuminated crosshair came lose. The Optima scopes simple fell apart at the windage and elevation adjustments. with the Beeman scope, the rear lens came lose. With the Gamo scope, the front lens came lose. At first I was disappointed and the loss of $$$ in these scopes was painful. But these pellet rifles are accurate, even with the hard sights. As strange as it might seem I would consider purchasing more Hatsan pellet rifles because they are very well constructed.
