Which is more powerful Gamo Magnum. 22 or this Hatsan 125 Vortex .22?
Some of that will depend on the pellet you use, but they are very similar. Both typically shoot in the mid to high 20 FPE range.
This gun with QE (Quite Energy)???
Do they make the 125 Vortex, .22 in camo?
It doesn't appear to be available any longer in that stock with the vortex ram
Should I buy the 125 in gas piston or spring piston (disadvantages and advantages of both)
What is the QE upgrade?
QE stands for quiet energy. It is hatsan's shroud/sound suppression system that comes on the gun.
Is the rail long enuph for a hawke 1 peace mount with 11 mm clamp
the sear won't release the piston when i pull the trigger??
Contact hatsanusa.com and send it back.
I have a problem with the trigger on my hatsan 125 sniper .22, i was shooting my rifle and i can tell you i was very super happy with this rifle , it was everything i need. suddenly i cocked the rifle and won't shoot at all, what can i do??
Hello some one , I recently bought a 125 vortex model , I'm kind of pleased with it . I have about 200 rounds through it , now every time I cocktail it the sleeve on the barrel spins. It Pisses me off .. is this something I can fix by simply tightening something or do I need to send it back
It says 1250 feet per second, what are people actually getting?
Use the lightest PBA pellet in the .177 cal. and .22 cal. and you should eclipse the 1250 fps for .177 and 1000 fps for .22 caliber. Crosman 4.0 grain .177 PBA/leadfree and Winchester 8.18 grain .22 PBA/ leadfree pellets should do it. I have 7/.177 caliber and 3/.22 caliber air rifles, all of them have exceeded the fps that is printed on the box for each air rifle. I do not have a .25 caliber air rifle, I can not say on that. Get a chronograph. Woodys World
I'm using the 25cal and with air arms 25cal in 25.40gr pellets I get 31+fpe lowest at 711 avg of 760 and high of 798fps . 8 of 10 is above the 750fps stated for my caliber using 25.40gr pellets which is common to hatsan as they do their measurements with lead though what grain I've no idea. So I'd assume yours in proper function will be getting within 50fps with medium weight pellets at around 9gr. Best I can offer but you should be getting in their range. Hatsan is VERY good about the way they rate their guns tending towards under statement of ability. They are the most powerful off shelf break barrel airguns out there. I plan on the 22cal next. Then another in both as backups. I love them so much. Enjoy! Also, in 22 and 25cal, the suppressor is relatively useless for what it's worth to you. Subsonic doesn't really make any difference with the qe. I get the 125 with standard stock for this reason and I use the rifle scabbards as opposed to a sling with my air rifles anyway but ymmv.
Depends on what weight pellet your using , its only what the manufacture claims , give or take.
Is the muzzlebrake/suppressor removable for cleaning by the end user?
Cant be removed by the user.
Does the cocking stroke lock at a bit more than 90 degrees like euro springers, or 120 like American designed springers?
Can ya still get the camo stock in the .22 caliber ?
Yes price is 269.99.
Everyone overstates the effort lol. I was VERY pleased and surprised on receiving mine which is over powered mind you. It's easy it's just a firmer feel than my crosman summit ranger np2 or big cat 1400. I'm very ill and can plink All day. I use the vortex piston models though and imagine the older metal spring version is tougher. It's more about physics than strength here so if you're 5ft5in and 145lbs you'll have some trouble as it's a long gun. It's easily 5in longer than my crosman summit ranger np2 or big cat 1400. The 90 degree cocking cycle helps imho as well so at 6ft 2 but sickly it's easy. Development of a good technique will also be a factor. It's harder on paper. In reality my crosman summit ranger np2 or big cat broken in are so light I can use 2 fingers to cock them (the summit was VERY tough and MUCH harder new than my 125 lol. So for myself, very easy and repeatable. Ymmv but don't let it scare you away, you'll love it! I'm all but certain of it!
If you're over 15 years old you will be fine.
Easy and very smooth
BRUTAL ! 45 - 50 pounds?
Which pellets does Hasan use to determine the FPS I the the .177 and .22? What grain are they?
How far can this gun shoot acurete using the right pellet (65ish i hope) ?
I shoot mine out to 75 yards .
Ive read reviews of people saying they can shoot 50 to 75 yards or more? It really depends on the pellet and the shooter , the scope or iron sights.
does the vortex piston lose power after shooting a while
There has been a lot of that happening with virtex piston . I bought spring piston . It will last longer.
Like anything mechanical parts do wear out. At less than 100 rounds my piston seal failed ? Sent in to Hatsan for an unrelated problem and they found the seal had failed , so it was replaced . Good customer service.
is this gun stronger than the octana in the .22 cla
I have them both,but the Umarex Octane is more silent,and more acurete,the 125 is more powerful and have better trigger,I prefer the Octane both in .22
I want to see a 10 for 10 string in the .22 cla. (14.3)
How is trigger compared to the RWS T06?
The RWS T06 trigger is far better than the Quatro trigger on this rifle. There is absolutely no comparison
I have an RWS Diana 34P with the T06 trigger. I haven't noticed any real difference. It breaks very clean.
Will picatinny rings fit this rails?
This rifle comes with a dovetail or weaver mount built into the receiver.
What pellets are the most accurate for the Hatsan 125 Sniper Vortex .25? What oil is recommended for this rifle for lubrication, maintaining the finish and the synthetic stock?
JSB Exact Kings or Predator Polymag (if actually hunting).
This rifle is going to do best with the JSB 25.4 grain pellets, though I've also had good results with the H&N Field Target Trophy 19.91 grains. You'll want to use a synthetic oil with a high flash point like FP-10 on the internals. Penetrating oil like Ballistol or Slick 50 One lube will do great on the external metal parts. There isn't any maintenance that's necessary on the synthetic stock.
What is cocking effort on .22 125 Vortex
It's a little stout around 45 lbs ... but I'm 66 and have no real trouble at all. Just reach high on the barrel near the front sight and you'll have no trouble at all ... use a little leverage
It's between 45-50 lbs.
On the .25 cal. what scope and mounts are people finding the best on this rifle?
The gun is heavy enough without adding scope weight. You could use the iron sights on the gun or get a cheap UTG red dot sight.
I mounted a UTG 3-12x44 Accushot Swat LE, comes with set of weaver mount rings that work very well. This scope can take the punishment the rifle can dishes out. I'm very pleased with this scope, very sturdy, 36 color reticle, mil-dots, locking/resetting turrets and side wheel parallax adjustment. Price was right too.
I'd recommend utilizing the weaver portion of the scope rail and getting the UTG 3-9x40 AO True Hunter scope, it comes with mounts that will work. (PY-A-4722)
Do these suffer from barrel droop like the Diana's do?
They can. It's not a cut and dry thing though. It can vary from gun to gun.
I would like to know the total number of scope rail slots & the maximum dist between them?
If you look at the pictures above there are 5 slots in the rail. It has both a dovetail and weaver rail.
Can bore paste be used on this rifle & can the silencer be cleaned?
Use some JB Bore Cleaning compound on a nylon brush and run it through about 20 times wiping off the one piece rod and brush with a paper towel after each run through. Then put a very small amount of Ballistol in a cleaning jag and run it through the bore and then a clean cloth. Switch hit between the Ballistol and a clean cloth until everything comes out clean. Then switch to all clean cloths until you have most of the Ballistol out and then put a bore snake through it. Remember to place a cloth or a paper towel over the air port going into the receiver to keep anything from getting in the gun's works. Ballistol is great for cleaning as it's main ingredient is mineral oil.
I would only clean an airgun once every 500-1000 shots you can use some bore solvent and run some patches through the barrel
What is the quality of the stock, solid or hollow and how stable is the cheek rest.
The stock is plastic decent quality and the cheek rest is pretty solid on this gun.
What are the 3 most accurate pellets for this in .22 cal
JSB 15.89, JSB 18.13 and Beeman Kodiak extra heavy.
What is the difference between the vortex model and the regular 125 sniper combo? So for 50 dollars less the vortex comes in .177cal. i think i see the only real difference? Duh?
The vortex has the piston in it and the regular model is the coiled metal spring
good scope that will hole up
Use the iron sight or a UTG red dot site. The gun is heavy enough without adding all that scope weight.
I made a mistake with recommending the 4-16x44 below ... the rail sits a little far forward on the 125and may present a problem getting your eyeball far enough forward to see properly. I have a 3-12x40 AO hunter rifle scope on mine and it works pretty darn good
Leapers 4-16x44 AO Accushot SWAT ... you can use medium rings if you take the front and trear sights off
Leapers utg 3-9x40 AO hunter rifle scope. That is the one I am using and it works perfect.
What are the chrony specs for this gun in 25 cal using JSB diabolical exact kings 25.4
I have the vortex version in .25 and get legitimate 750 with JSB exact Kings and Predator Polymag
A high of 665.69 and a low of 648.19.
What are the chrony specs on this gun in 25 cal using JSBs 25.4????
Again, I get legitimate 750 with Exact Kings and Predator Polymag on the vortex version.
I SAW A REVIEW 780 TO 80SOMTHING AVG 790 FPS They were very shocked too! Don't recall what piston NP or Vortex, sory, was a 125 Sniper though.
