Things I liked: .22 cal. The design. Excedes listed advertisement. Over 30fpe any pellet,15g to 26g,any time. Accurate at 100 yrds. Pellet friendly "fav"s are the Baracudas 18g,21g. Rear sights are 8" further back closer to the eye than a break barrel. Fiber Optics are precise & predictable. Smooth action for a Magnum. Its rebuildable/tuneable. Good platform to build on. Mine will never see a Scope.I can hold consistent groups at 97yrds using a point of refernce for aiming,i dont actualy see the Bull, but i group rt next to it. W/ a scope im sure it would be very cool. At 75yrds where i see good,i can hold very tight groups. Dead on. No doubt it will kill a crow as far as i can see. Got this years Turkey w/it at 33yrds. Several other large critters have met there fate. Its a skull buster w/ a 24g on big coons. Got Turkey w/a Skenco UltraMag Metal tip 18g & i was an inch off,he went down.Nice big exit hole.Bottom line, if i can see it i can put lead on it.Everything you need,you just gotta tap into it.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. I can spend my money at P.A. w/confidence. Dan at customer service helped me w/ Replace'n the break barrel model 125 for a bolt action model 150. Painless.
What others should know: Steep learning curve.Requires technique & discipline.My Manual didnt mention Q-trigger.Which i fought w/ frustratingly.Under FAQ at Hatsan USA "understanding the Q-trigger" helped alot.So much more enjoyable.Im very confident w/this Rifle now,as i got it for Hunting.I use my own technique w/front fiber optic bead,this 1 is big.Having no trouble shooting from against standing tree or post or over fallen tree or boulder long distance now that im more familiar w/it.Deff adds distance to your killing field,I moved another 20yrds out from my fav Turkey honeypot,since the last kill.Pratice your Hunting stances before you go out.I straight up missed 2 Toms on diff outings before i figured out the Q-trigger.Boy was i frustrated.Patience prevailed.Nothing great comes easy.Dont try & Man Handle it,learn the proper techniques.For 200 bucks this Rifle Kiks Azz. I had mod 125 Vortex 1st,i replaced it for the bolt action 150,so glad i did. Dont have to bump or smack this model in any way. Very happy
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.
Hatsan makes this in a .25 with a Vortex piston. Will this be available here any time soon?
Available now at 80 dollars more 329.99.
Not that we're aware of yet
What is the Foot pound energy on these calibers?
Foot pounds of energy is determined by the weight of the pellet and the velocity. You can use this calculator to help determine the foot pounds of energy: http://www.pyramydair.com/article/What_is_Muzzle_Energy_August_2003/5
Is the nitro piston upgrade available for this rifle? How much more would it add to the cost?
You would have to buy Crosman Nitro Piston Conversion, Fits....
