  • Daniel from Belgium asked:

    My pcp cylinder is leaking I refilled it and let it in the gun case. 6 hours later 150 is gone completely. This is the first time I have this issue. There are no signs of leakages anywhere to be found.

    • Mark from USA:

      Contact Hatsan USA for warranty repairs.

  • James from USA asked:

    HATSAN GLADIUS .25 LONG-Does anyone have any input for insight into the installation of a regulator, such as a huma regulator, and the results. Is it worth it? Is it necessary? I have done research that resulted in that the cylinder around the regulator begins to swell and leak. Thanks guys and gals

    • Stanley from USA:

      Im sure there are numerous how-to videos out there showing this? Try YOU TUBE.

  • C. Allen from USA asked:

    I'm told that the AT44 barrel is interchangeable on the ATP2 platform. Is this correct and what else would be necessary to complete the modifications properly? Someone else Has to have tried this before, no?

    • Stanley from USA:

      You might check out the airgun forums maybe someone has done this?

  • David from USA asked:

    What is the best pellet for the hatsan gladius.25cal? Right now I use the Vortex Supreme 19.91gr and I'm having a little bit of success with the grouping but it's not as tight as I would like.

    • Stanley from USA:

      For what its worth mine likes the 25.39 grain JSB KING EXACT. Haven't tried anything different so far. Very accurate. I have never even cleaned the barrel , pulled out of case and started shooting. Mine is the 25 long version. I don't consider myself a great shooter but i can pick off squirrels over my back fence at 55 yards easily.

    • Jordan from USA:

      It depends you could have two of the exact same gun side by side and they could like different pellets than the other. But best brands to start with would probably be H&N or JSB. But it will come down to trail and error.

  • David from USA asked:

    I have the Hatsan Gladius.25cal Short and wanted to know what the best pellet would be for this Pcp air rifle?

    • Mark from USA:

      The best pellet is a trial and error. You shoot a variety of pellets and find the one that gives you the best results.

  • John from USA asked:

    Does this have the manual and automatic safety?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes

  • Sam from USA asked:

    I own a heavy AirMax Hatsan & wonder if I can slide the Gladius tube in the AirMax? I will lose 250cc but hopefully will reduce the weight. Am I doing the right thing?

    • Stanley from USA:

      They seem to be different designs so it wouldn't be compatible ?

  • TROY from United Kingdom asked:

    Guys can anyone tell me the barrel size please? not the length the Diameter as I want to add a moderator to hush the gun even more. I am looking for a slide over grub screw locking type unless anyone can come up with something that's better and available in England ? Regards Troy

    • Stanley from USA:

      Mine measures 1 inch.

  • David from USA asked:

    I have the hatsan gladius .25 cal and I got the hatsan Hand pump for it but the air leaks out the prob when I start to pump. I dont know what I'm doing wrong

    • Tyler from USA:

      Have you tried placing new o-rings on the probe? If it's leaking from the actual fill port, that would likely be the issue. If it's leaking at one of the connection points, try tightening them up

  • Jorell from USA asked:

    Is it possible to switch the top picatinny rail to a longer one?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not that I have seen

  • Lucas from USA asked:

    My Gladis .25 I just got today shooting the barracuda 31.02 (just to try), the magazine won't spin as I'm cocking it...is it because of the pellets or something with the gun? Or they don't rotate at all??

    • Stanley from USA:

      If longer pellets that are loaded in the mag it will not spin and load .I use JSBs 25.39 with no problems, try different pellets .

  • makima from India asked:

    What is the size of inner breech and outter breech O ring size of gladius.177 ..and how can i find this?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Visit hatsanusa.com they have spare parts available.

  • L. khang from USA asked:

    Why so heavy? This little gun is heavier than shotgun! Would like to buy one if the weight drop into the 6 .lb range.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Making them lighter would involve possibly using more expensive materials therefore driving the price up . It is a great value , the only negative being the weight . They are very well made.There are lighter bullpups out there but they will substantially lighten your wallet if you want to spend that much ?

  • Corey from USA asked:

    What's more accurate the gladius .22 or .25

    • Stanley from USA:

      I have the 25 long and it is very accurate with JSB pellets 25.39 grains . Most prefer JSBs. But everyone has there own choice . You could read articles or watch videos on you tube , there are many .

  • Skip from USA asked:

    Where do I get additional power cylinder tubes?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Available through this website #PY-A-6714 is the number.

  • Jeff from USA asked:

    Can the gas cylinders be changed when they are full? Are they full at 3000 psi, 200 bar?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes the air tubes can be changed when they are full , they have there own valve and can be removed anytime .

  • michael from USA asked:

    I cleaned the barrel as it was extremely dirty, however I still get a 3 inch group. Two pellets go through the same hole the other seven are fliers. A few pellets may be five inches off the mark. I am using JSBs. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • David from USA:

      My Gladius does not shoot JSB's well at all. H&N produce much better groups, the best being the Baracuda Hunter 18.21 (actual wt. ave. around 18.31 gr) with 3/8" to 1/2" @ 25 yds.

    • Kazuki from Japan:

      If it was not optic problem, I would suggest to take off the shroud and barrel, and check any problem inside the barrel. I had same or worse CTC with my Gladius 22 short and there was a big diffect in the barrel near the muzzle and a several dents near the breach. PA kindly planned to exchange the barrel.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Might be a scope or a mount problem ? You didn't say what scope or mount you were using ? I have never cleaned my barrel from day one , and I'm using a Hawk scope with a one piece mount. Make sure all the pellets are seated in the rotary mag .

  • michael from USA asked:

    My Hatsan Gladius is not accurate. Groups are sporadic and average 3 inches at 25 yards. I have tried several pellets. I have the .25 caliber long with the QE technology. Anyone have any advice?

    • Stanley from USA:

      I can only relate my experience with my 25 long . Out of the case i didn't clean the barrel and I've been using JSB Exact pellets 25.39 grains , absolute tack driving performance so far , i have no complains. You didn't say what optic you were using . Mine is a Hawk 6.5 x 20 x 42mm with a one piece mount , sighted in less than 5 rounds.

  • Kazuki from Japan asked:

    Can you adjust the hummer spring? I saw a youtube video but it does not work on my 22 short.

    • Stanley from USA:

      You will need a shooting chronograph to judge how much to turn , like it says( clockwise) less air ,( counter clockwise) more air according to the video i watched ? Plus a long 4mm wrench and the tool it comes with.

  • nathaniel from USA asked:

    Need help I want the fx impact but from what I hear the gladius performs just as well but is cheaper. What should one go with?

    • CARLOS E from USA:

      Fx impact is in another league. Quality wise, accuracy and craftsmanship is superior, also Impact is regulated, and barrels are interchangeable. But cost twice this one! You decide

    • Stanley from USA:

      A personal choice of coarse . I have the 25 long and be advised it does weigh 10 plus pounds so i hope your still young enough to tote this monster around . I hunt with mine and don't mind the weight but thats me , the next person you ask will say its to flipping HEAVY!!!!!!! . It also includes an automatic safety that comes on every time it is cocked , some don't like that feature but i think its that much safer (this is far from a toy ) it is not your daddy daisy thats for sure. With a scope it can weigh 11 plus pounds easy , with a lighter scope maybe lighter give or take? Who knows? If your looking for a light pup it may not be this one. One thing it won't do is lighten your pocketbook . Its just me but i think its a great value. Good luck deciding .

  • Gary from USA asked:

    are there any comments from left handed shooters? How friendly are these to lefties?

    • Stanley from USA:

      I shoot my 25 long left handed and find it very comfortable . Right handers probably find it more to there liking considering that the cocking handle is on the right side ( and can't be switched) , and since it can be shot and cocked without lowering the weapon, but i have no problems.

  • John from USA asked:

    Why doesn't Hatsan make lighter rifles, or when will they begin doing so? Their power is terrific, accuracy is pretty sweet considering their price point - but Jeez Louise, how about making a rifle we actually wouldn't mind carrying in the field? Their rifles are nice on the range but unpleasant to lug around in the field, to the point of taking a lot of fun out of ownership.Will Pyramyd Air encourage Hatsan to focus upon this in future designs?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Making them lighter = higher pricing , they would need to employ different materials to do so. I do agree they could and should be lighter , but some of us can't afford the price of admission . If you desire a lighter pup then there are so many available , but be prepared to sheel out the big bucks. I would think that Pyramyd Air would have no say in what a air gun manufacture does with there products , they sell and service end of story.

  • nathaniel from USA asked:

    So no dovetail rail on this rifle?

    • Stanley from USA:

      It has a 11mm dovetail and a weaver mount combo , accepts either one.

  • nathaniel from USA asked:

    How accurate is this in the .22 long version?

    • Steve from USA:

      I am making dime size holes at 60 yards. I did have one 10 shot group that was 1 ragged hole at 50 yards. Very accurate. Killing starlings at 125 yards is easy.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Mine is the 25 caliber long with a Hawk 6.5 x20x42mm sidewinder scope so i can't speak for the 22 caliber but i can say is that it is very accurate with JSB Exact Kings 25.39 grains .

  • Steve from USA asked:

    Where are the barrels made? Some are saying they are Lothar Walther barrels and others are saying that they are made by Hatsan in Turkey.

    • kenney from USA:

      They are German steel just as good

  • Roberto from USA asked:

    Where is the barrel made? can you do a bstaley tune in this gun? tanks...

    • kenney from USA:

      German steel barrel. No bstaley tune

  • Arvanitidis, from USA asked:

    Did someone measure the muzzle energy yet, using the different power settings?

    • DEZIII from USA asked:

      I was told to use 31.2 pellet for my gladius, that is un reg. at this time. i have a reg. to install later. will pellet weight change.

      • Stanley from USA:

        No just meters out the available air (higher shot count).

    • ted from USA asked:

      How long of a pellet will fit in the clip ? Or what would be the max weight pellet ?

      • Walter from USA:

        I'm able to use both H&N Baracuda 31.02 gr. and Eun Jin 35.8 gr. pellets. They appear to be too long, but they work.

      • Rich from USA:

        All the JSB pellets will fit and the standard predator pellet.

      • Stanley from USA:

        I shoot jsb exact kings in 25 caliber 25.39 grains anything longer may not work. The clip is not very deep.

    • Rich from USA asked:

      Is the Gladius equipped with one of those stupid European automatic safeties?

      • Steve from USA:

        IT does have an auto safety but you get used to it real quick. I automatically push it forward before I shoot and what is also nice is that it can be reset by pulling it back.

      • Stanley from USA:

        Gee your right my remington 700 in 22.250 doesn't have one either , but its a real firearm and not made by hatsan. Its just the way it was designed.No big deal.

      • Rich from USA:

        Gee you're right wonder why my 270 Winchester model 70 doesn't have one?

      • Stanley from USA:

        It does have an automatic safety . Its only stupid if you don't use them.

    • jongwook from USA asked:

      How loud is this?

      • Stanley from USA:

        About 68db.

    • Robert from USA asked:

      10.2lb.... Does it come with it's own trailer? My arm is tired just thinking about it

      • Gary from USA:

        I just pull it around on a sled. Dogs don't seem to mind. Actually the competition is 2 to 3 pounds lighter with about 7 to 12 hundred dollars more I think I can handle weight on my arms and more weight in my back pocket.

      • Richard from USA:

        The weight is not a factor. The rifle balances at the shoulder, I'm 75 years old and not a muscle man. I shot it off hand from friend gun no problem

      • max from USA:

        Looks cool but 10 ib lol that kinda defeats the purpose of a Bullpup design

      • Richard from USA:

        I won't take it hunting. So, weight is no problem. I plan on shooting with the bipod from a shooting bench or from a Caldwell tripod which is made for light carry hunting. I'll have fun in my backyard.

      • Stanley from USA:

        The trailer is optional . Cancel your gym membership you will no longer need it .

    • Durwood from USA asked:

      Glad to see a few people understand the myths about barrel length affecting accuracy: i.e. distance between sights and barrel straightness affect accuracy. It would seem to me that free floating barrels are more likely to be damaged than a barrel bedded in an a near inert stock material. Does anyone also agree that free floating barrel being more accurate - except on wood/moisture sensative/affected stocks - is also a myth?

      • Ronbow from USA:

        Barrel length affects power, as you can see in the product stats. No stock is 100% inflexible. They flex every so slightly just from the weight on the bipod. If you're shooting rabbit heads at 40+ meters, you don't want stock flex pressing on the barrel.

      • Steve from USA:

        I love free floating barrels. They are an effective insulator of movement of stock material. I am very careful in treatment of my guns and have never had a problem with damage to free floating barrels.

      • Helmut from USA:

        Sometimes.

    • joe from USA asked:

      Where is this manufactured??

      • Robert from USA:

        Turkey

      • Stanley from USA:

        Says made in turkey , Hatsan USA Inc. Bentonville,AR.

      • Rich from USA:

        Turkey ( EU )

    • MARLON from USA asked:

      I don't feel the need for two air cylinder one regulated and one not. Will they sell only a regulated version with a adjusted price so we can save us some serious money?

      • Kris from USA:

        When this gun was announced to be released in north america it had already been released in europe. The european release originally came with a regulated and an unregulated cylinder. Some of us checked the turkish website because so little information was available here.

      • Gary from USA:

        Were you buying yours at? I want to go there, 2 cylinders awesome .

      • Richard from USA:

        You get one air cylinder. Extras are about $150.

      • Rich from USA:

        What makes you think you get more than one air cylinder?

    • rojer from USA asked:

      how about loudness is it low medium, medium, high ? thanks.

      • Moss from USA:

        Low

    • rojer from USA asked:

      Is it possible to buy any parts of all hatsan air rifle, for trouble shooting or for repair? thanks.

      • Val from USA:

        from Hatsan USA

    • Waylon from USA asked:

      The long version adds a few more inches and by the looks of it the case would only accommodate it very tightly, does the long ver. have a hard case dedicated to it or is it just going to be a tight fit?

      • Rich from USA:

        The case also accommodates a large scope on high mounts

      • Stanley from USA:

        If you watch the you tube videos it shows a good view of the case , since the long version is only 4 inches longer the included case can accommodate it very well (not a tight fit) .

    • ted from USA asked:

      970 fps on .25 cal ? Is that with a jsb King or something lighter ? How long is the barrel on the " long" version ? Why do they always come out with this " can't live without it stuff" just before tax return time ??? :-) Sounds like a "must have" to me

      • Grayland from USA:

        19 grain field target trophies will go that fast plus some. Chorny thek last year in my at44long.

      • kenney from USA:

        Thats probably with a lighter pellet but from having the bt65 i can tell you with the correct hammer spring adjustment you can get it to 940 950 with jsb 25.39 grains and i have the elite also pushing the 33.95 jsb for 850 to 870fps with 57 to 60 foot pounds

    • James from USA asked:

      Does anyone know if there are any plans to put this gun out in .357?

      • Grayland from USA:

        13 pounder change. Can anyone say carbinfiber bottles

      • kenney from USA:

        I doubt it but the are coming out with a new rifle soon called the Hercules i. 177 all the way up to 40 cal with a 1000 cc bottle. Google hatsan at the 2016 shot show and you will see it. Thats going to be the one that changes the game

    • Norman from USA asked:

      are there any plans to bundle this rifle as some others? ( Ie pump scope package)

      • Val from USA:

        I am sure PA will have bundles launched soon

      • kenney from USA:

        Airgun depot has it as a bundle item

      • Stanley from USA:

        Yes I've seen them else where but i can't speak for PA .

    • Duane from USA asked:

      Are the barrels interchangeable?

      • Grayland from USA:

        No

    • dave from USA asked:

      just an observation... in the description found on the web page claims that, " The Gladius Long version features an extended barrel for those looking for both increased accuracy and energy upon impact." Correct me if I'm wrong but a longer barrel DOES NOT increase accuracy. (And the "Godfather" has made that same statement) I will however, agree that a longer barrel will increase energy. Are you/they still going to stand by this "claim"? Seems misleading.....

      • Robert from USA:

        Greater pellet speed results in a flatter trajectory

      • liam from USA:

        PCP air "rifles" with longer barrels increases speed and air efficiency NOT accuracy. So YES you are absolutely correct.

      • Edward from USA:

        Of course a longer barrel increases accuracy, just compare a pistol to a rifle and it obvious. Its easier to get a better line up on targets with a longer barrel.

    • Chris from USA asked:

      Is side lever reverse able?

      • Stanley from USA:

        No .

    • John from USA asked:

      A question to be answered sometime in the future ... Is there a possibility that there might someday be a wooden stock? If so, in my book, it is then next to perfect.

      • Steve from USA:

        The Hatsan Gladius is from what I hear an AT44 QE in bullpup form. There are some wood Bullpup stocks available that may fit the Gladius as they do fit the AT44.

      • Richard from USA:

        If it had a wooden stock you would probably need Ahnold S. to lift it.

    • joel from USA asked:

      is it regulated

      • Scott from USA:

        No, but from what I understand they are going to offer a Regulated air cylinder you can buy extra and it will be as easy as just switching out with the one that comes stock.

      • Stanley from USA:

        No.

    • Domingo from USA asked:

      Is the power adjust has a detent like the turrets of a tactical riflescope?

      • Stanley from USA:

        There is a button on the left side that is depressed then the power adjuster can be turned.

    • G. from USA asked:

      Would the hand pump I use with my Benjamin Marauder work with the Hatsan Gladius or would I have to buy some other pump?

      • Richard from USA:

        Its(male quick disconect )cheap and will get to you fast from Pyramyd Air.

      • aaron from USA:

        Yes, you would need a small adapter called an Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect.

    • andrew from USA asked:

      Is this gun regulated? If not, I think that is a huge miss for a bullpup if it is to compete with what else is out there.

      • Robert from USA:

        You might as well buy a Cricket if you have to spend even more on this elephant...

      • Grayland from USA:

        No, but huma and altaros regulators make one for it. The one for the galation will probably fit. Price is around $125. Hope this is some help.

    • Rudolf R. from USA asked:

      What are the dimensional differences between the short and long versions?

      • Chris from USA:

        Overall length: Bullpup 34.4" / Bullpup Long 38"Barrel length: Bullpup 19.4" / Bullpup Long 23"

      • thomas from USA:

        The long version has a 3.5" inch longer barrel

    • Kenneth from USA asked:

      how quite is this compared to a Benjamin Armada?

      • Steve from USA:

        The gun is really quiet but I am going to install the bottle brush de-pinger. The ping this gun makes is lots louder than the shot itself and the pellet hitting a board is way louder than the gun itself. I hear that the available regulators make de-pingers a non issue.

      • Walter from USA:

        They are about the same. I own both and they are backyard friendly and hearing safe. I damaged my hearing years ago with firearms, so this matters to me.

      • Stanley from USA:

        I read an article stating it was 68db.
