Before I break it... the spare mags shipped installed in the stock... they do not want to budge. Is there a trick to remove them? Or are they just THAT tight?
They are secured by a set screw. Need to loosen that first
How does the bullpump action affect the user? Is it too much noise to the ear? Is it too much vibration or recoil force to the shoulder? I have never used a bullpmup before, not sure what is the benefit of this design other than being compact.......?
Thanks Tyler. Due to the limited time sales event, I went ahead to get the Barrage model before I read your response. Your input is still very important to me in the future buying. I like the performance of Barrage, very tight group and accurate within 22 yards. The Barrage also has some recoil but manageable.
There is a little vibration when fired, but not much recoil. The rifle isn't terribly loud. A bullpup is made to be compact and easy to maneuver, that's really the appeal. You get full length rifle performance from a much shorter overall gun.
How is the accuracy compared to the Gladius? I have the BT65QE, and it is awesome.
The barrels come from the same place, and the accuracy I've seen from these has been comparable to the other hatsan pcp models
Your website shows the option to purchase this gun in .25 cal but the product description says its only available in .177 and .22. Which is correct?
The .25 is available, looks like PA just hasn't updated the descriptions on their site yet
I have problem with my hatsan bullmaster..the magazine will not rotate at all..
Same here. fired 200 rounds perfect right out of the box.at 201, mag failed to cycle.
I have the same problem, only shot through about 3 full magazines. Now its no longer semi auto. Very frustrating, may have to return
Can I fill the tank on this gun with a hand pump? I have a Benjamin High Pressure Hand Pump that I use for a Bulldog and am not sure if it would work as is, or if a I need an adapter, or another solution all together. Thanks
You will need this adapter for the fill probe that comes with the gun to make it fit the end of your pump hose. Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8"...
I got a new bullmaster and a mk4 handpump the gun not holding air and leaks out with each pump? 408 661 1029
When the rifle ships empty you have to pump fast (initially) for the air tank to seal itself.
You can add a small amount of silicone divers grease to the o-rings , this worked for me?
What is your recommendation for a scope(s) and rings? (low, med or high rings) Thanks
Me personally i like the Hawk scopes , mounted one on my Gladius and sighted in very easy (less than 5 rounds).UTG also makes good scopes for the money. I would use high mounts when you shoulder the gun they make it comfortable , easy for eye relief .
Is the 500 cc cylinder removable ?
No it is not meant to be removed unless service is needed then you would send it back to Hatsan.
Is there a way to swap the charging handle to the other side? This thing is on my wishlist but having to shoot w the left hand is preventing me on buying it...
No it can't changed to the other side . You could purchase the Barrage ?
Dear sirs kindly let us know it is regulated air gun or now?!
It is not.
It is not a regulated rifle because of the semi-auto mechanism .
It's a shame this rifle is not made for Left hand shooters since I have been one since the Vietnam war. I have waited a long time for this rifle to emerge,tell me Hatsan have plans for a Left hand version in 25. cal.
Maybe eventually a lot can change in year ?
Do they use the expanding gas from the barrel to cycle the semi-automatic function like a powderburner or are they using air from the cylinder? At that shot count it seems like the cylinder though it would need to be regulated so it wouldn't overwhelm the mechanism or slow as pressure drops.
