When cleaning the barrel can you dry-fire before you close the action? If not, what do you do?
You do not need to break the barrel to the cocked position to clean the barrel, but if you decide to go that route, load a pellet and shoot it when you finish cleaning. Never dry fire a spring or gas piston air rifle
Sir which country made this gun?
Is it possible to get an ambidextrous stock?
Yes. Just look for the TH to be absent from the title. This is the NON TH black mod 125 vortex. I just bought it. I'm a lefty.
Is it possible to add a gas piston to a hatsan 125 previously purchased
You might want to contact Hatsan USA about doing so. They should be able to fit your gun with a Vortex Piston.
Whats the difference between the 125 and the 125 sniper?
The Sniper has a fixed moderator on the barrel. It also has an adjustable cheek piece
If you're left handed would the stock affect your accuracy?
It shouldn't i shoot my Gamo Hunter Extreme left handed . Its really about how you hold it ?
Is the velocity on this gun lead or alloy pellets?
Hatsan is one of the few (perhaps only) companies known to under rate the velocity of their guns. It is what you can realistically expect with real world pellets you would hunt with, not alloy or sabots.
OK I definitely made up my mind this rifle. I want it for coon hunting. I can't make up my mind on the caliper though .22 or .25 I shoot my coon out of the tree head shots which caliper would b best?
Justin, If you are just going to hunt, I would go with the .25 especially if I were going after medium sized game. It creates a larger wound channel. Just be aware cost per shot will be more with the .25, your trajectory will be more "rainbowed", and you will have fewer choices of pellets. It used to be the availability of good quality pellets in .25 was slim. That is no longer quite as true and you will likely find one that does well in this rifle. Just be aware you will need to order them online from a place like Pyramyd Air and you won't be able to run out at the last second and buy them at your local big-box or sporting goods store. While I have taken a few damage causing coons around the garden with a .22, it was not my first choice.
What Is Included in the 10 FOR 10 I Keep Reading About
If you click on the bottom of this page where it says 10 for 10 service it is explained in detail.
can i purchase this in left hand stock
The pistol grip on this version of 125 is ambidextrous, including the cheek rest.
This one comes as right handed only.
Is there a bipod available that will fit this rifle?
UTG offers a few barrel clamping bipods, but they would not be my first recommendation as it will place undue stress on the barrel.
Could I put a sling on this. If so what do you reccomend
What is a good & accurate Hunting Pellet for this Rifle
Any particular weight on those Diablo Exacts? 8.13? 15.89?
For accuracy, diablo exacts, for power the polymags. You honestly can't go wrong with either one
has anyone else had a problem with the weaver rail? Did the included mounts fit on the weaver rail, mine did not? I tried two other weaver mounts and they would not fit onto the weaver rail of the hatsan..
Maybe the rings you are trying to use are Picatinny? I remember mine was a pita too, for different reasons. I hated it. They should get rid of this weird and ugly setup and use dove or pic only, and certainly no Weaver.
The rifle comes with dovetail rings, so they won't fit the weaver. The rifle has both dovetail and weaver, so they should fit the dovetail. If the weaver portion of the rail won't accept other weaver rings, you would want to contact Hatsan at 1-877-278-4448.
the gun is set up for either weaver or doevtail, are you sure you're not trying to use weaver mounts in the dovetail groove?
Can some please tell me what the cocking effort for this rifle is ?
The coil spring version is closer to 45, so I'd suspect this one is as much or more. Anything is possible, but I doubt they'd allow the gas version out the door if it was less powerful than the coil. I also thought 45 was excessive so maybe they also improved the design so it makes as much power with less spring. Guess we'll have to wait until an owner measures it.
Between 35 to 38 pounds.
What is the cocking effort for this rifle?
Between 35 to 38 pounds.
Not much info about the scope supplied with the Nitro Piston Hatsan 125 in .25 cal. Does it have AO?
It does not have an adjustable objective.
