Things I liked:Everthing. Ease to cock. Can drive tacks with this rifle ( have lit matches at 10 yards ). It bets my favorite .22 hands down for accuracy. BTW I used to shoot competition .22 rimfire and this gun is more accurate.
Things I would have changed:. Could save weight if cocking lever was an alloy. A nitro piston underlever would be the ultimate gun. Higher velocities (with a good spring tune or even beter a quality nitro piston) on .22 should be attainable for heavy loads and long shots. I may be speaking out of place but this would give more velocity and should be caried over to the new Hatsan line you carry.
What others should know:My gun is a mkI. Had it over 25 years. Sent it in to get a minor repair and tune ( will folow up with review of my tune and changes soon ). My HW77 .22 auto and probably my 25-06 bolt action would be my 3 guns for the Americas. If I could take another it would be a 686 SW 357 mag. If you buy this gun you, and your son, will never be sorry as you will pass it down as with any cherished hunting implement.
Things I liked:ease too cock, shots dead on strait out of the box , FUN too shot, an if you compare it too a rimfire .22 am ask too point out the air gun i bet most people could not till the difference as the quality is the same
Things I would have changed:nothing
What others should know:installed a hawke varmint sf 4-16x44 scope with beeman high match mounts . it will hit a small tin can at 50 yds every shot with JSB exact 14.30gr pellets an go though it both sides of the heavy tin can NOT aluminum i rest the front stock on a bipod an it will hit every time this is the the first air gun ive owned an ive put apx. 100 pellets though it .so i know when i shot free hand and miss its not the guns fault its mine.
Things I liked:Fit & finish are flawless. Stock has very nice finish with checkering. The blueing on the metal parts is perfect. Very pleased with the Rekord trigger. It has zero creep and nice clean break avgeraging 1.1lb. . No play in any of the cocking mechanism. Cheekpiece is perfectly located for a scope. 18.5" barrel gives a nice long sight radius with iron sights.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:This is a heavier rifle, but feels great with its proportions. Classsic style and design with great performance.
