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.
Contact Hatsan USA for warranty repairs.
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
Im sure there are numerous how-to videos out there showing this? Try YOU TUBE.
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?
You might check out the airgun forums maybe someone has done this?
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.
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.
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.
I have the Hatsan Gladius.25cal Short and wanted to know what the best pellet would be for this Pcp air rifle?
The best pellet is a trial and error. You shoot a variety of pellets and find the one that gives you the best results.
Does this have the manual and automatic safety?
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?
They seem to be different designs so it wouldn't be compatible ?
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
Mine measures 1 inch.
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
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
Is it possible to switch the top picatinny rail to a longer one?
Not that I have seen
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??
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 .
What is the size of inner breech and outter breech O ring size of gladius.177 ..and how can i find this?
Visit hatsanusa.com they have spare parts available.
Why so heavy? This little gun is heavier than shotgun! Would like to buy one if the weight drop into the 6 .lb range.
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 ?
What's more accurate the gladius .22 or .25
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 .
Where do I get additional power cylinder tubes?
Available through this website #PY-A-6714 is the number.
Can the gas cylinders be changed when they are full? Are they full at 3000 psi, 200 bar?
Yes the air tubes can be changed when they are full , they have there own valve and can be removed anytime .
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.
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.
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.
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 .
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?
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.
Can you adjust the hummer spring? I saw a youtube video but it does not work on my 22 short.
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.
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?
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
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 .
are there any comments from left handed shooters? How friendly are these to lefties?
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.
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?
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.
So no dovetail rail on this rifle?
It has a 11mm dovetail and a weaver mount combo , accepts either one.
How accurate is this in the .22 long version?
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.
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 .
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.
They are German steel just as good
Where is the barrel made? can you do a bstaley tune in this gun? tanks...
German steel barrel. No bstaley tune
Did someone measure the muzzle energy yet, using the different power settings?
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.
No just meters out the available air (higher shot count).
How long of a pellet will fit in the clip ? Or what would be the max weight pellet ?
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.
All the JSB pellets will fit and the standard predator pellet.
I shoot jsb exact kings in 25 caliber 25.39 grains anything longer may not work. The clip is not very deep.
Is the Gladius equipped with one of those stupid European automatic safeties?
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.
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.
Gee you're right wonder why my 270 Winchester model 70 doesn't have one?
It does have an automatic safety . Its only stupid if you don't use them.
How loud is this?
10.2lb.... Does it come with it's own trailer? My arm is tired just thinking about it
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.
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
Looks cool but 10 ib lol that kinda defeats the purpose of a Bullpup design
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.
The trailer is optional . Cancel your gym membership you will no longer need it .
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?
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.
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.
Where is this manufactured??
Says made in turkey , Hatsan USA Inc. Bentonville,AR.
Turkey ( EU )
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?
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.
Were you buying yours at? I want to go there, 2 cylinders awesome .
You get one air cylinder. Extras are about $150.
What makes you think you get more than one air cylinder?
how about loudness is it low medium, medium, high ? thanks.
Is it possible to buy any parts of all hatsan air rifle, for trouble shooting or for repair? thanks.
from Hatsan USA
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?
The case also accommodates a large scope on high mounts
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) .
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
19 grain field target trophies will go that fast plus some. Chorny thek last year in my at44long.
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
Does anyone know if there are any plans to put this gun out in .357?
13 pounder change. Can anyone say carbinfiber bottles
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
are there any plans to bundle this rifle as some others? ( Ie pump scope package)
I am sure PA will have bundles launched soon
Airgun depot has it as a bundle item
Yes I've seen them else where but i can't speak for PA .
Are the barrels interchangeable?
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.....
Greater pellet speed results in a flatter trajectory
PCP air "rifles" with longer barrels increases speed and air efficiency NOT accuracy. So YES you are absolutely correct.
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.
Is side lever reverse able?
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.
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.
If it had a wooden stock you would probably need Ahnold S. to lift it.
is it regulated
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.
Is the power adjust has a detent like the turrets of a tactical riflescope?
There is a button on the left side that is depressed then the power adjuster can be turned.
Would the hand pump I use with my Benjamin Marauder work with the Hatsan Gladius or would I have to buy some other pump?
Its(male quick disconect )cheap and will get to you fast from Pyramyd Air.
Yes, you would need a small adapter called an Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect.
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.
You might as well buy a Cricket if you have to spend even more on this elephant...
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.
What are the dimensional differences between the short and long versions?
Overall length: Bullpup 34.4" / Bullpup Long 38"Barrel length: Bullpup 19.4" / Bullpup Long 23"
The long version has a 3.5" inch longer barrel
how quite is this compared to a Benjamin Armada?
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.
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.
I read an article stating it was 68db.
