5.0 5.0

By Andy from Canada on 2013-04-12 02:53:11

Things I liked:

I've had the .22 model of this a/g for a while, and its great, I've alway's been into springers,and this is my first venture into pcp, What a difference, Coming from a host of top of the line springer's, (Cometa Fusion Premier.22, as one example)This blows it away. I'm getting close to 1000fps with H&N FTT 5.54mm(16-gr,.),and with 9gr Prometheus Hunters,I get close to 1140fps, and thats with deadly accuracy, Accurate enough to knock off a 25pd Racoon 75ft up a Pine Tree, and it was dead before it hit the ground with a head shot!. If you hunt with your a/g's, then this is your gun, after you get used to the shooting cycle, You'll be squeezing them off like Chuck Conners, But seriously, This gun is awesome!, Very easy to get your line of sight, and you keep it, even going through the pumping cycle, It's a polymer stock, but it's rock hard, not like the plastic Crosman Uses (Crosman M4177, as an example). Choosing the right ammo for this shooter may be a challenge, I've found that alot of my favourite pellets don't cycle well, It's a shame, I really like hunting with Skenco Metal-Tipped Ultra Mag's, but they're just too long, As with most of the point's in my arsenal, I However, I did find it shot excellent with H&N SilverPonts(17.10gr,.) In domes, the only pellet that was a little too long was H&N Baracuda's, Hunters, H&N Field Targets, Silouette's, FTT, FTT Power, Gamo Pro Hunters/Hunters, AirArms FX SmoothTwist pellets all performed well and left everything in the black @ 20M

Things I would have changed:

The weight!,,It's a heavy gun, and w/ that kind of heft, It should come with factory swivels, a shot-gun sling will be hard to place on this gun due to it's configuration.Any swivel attachment should be done professionally. Also, Magazine placement should be more internal, Too much of it is sticking out, and makes scope placement problematic.

What others should know:

Finding Optic's for this Beast may become a problem, If you plan on using a standard scope, You're going to need high mounts, and an Objective of Less of than 40mm, a Red-Dot may do the trick, but the rail's are a tad too thick for any Q/D type of mount. I put a JGBG M8 3.5X40 I/R, Integrated Laser on mine, and it fit's just right, and performs Extremely well with this gun, and doesn't add alot of weight.Get yourself extra magazines, I found that 6, will get you through all of your gun's power shots per fill-up, I also sprung for an extra air cylinder, tossed in my rucksuck, provides me with me more than enough air for a day in the field. Once you get used to this gun, It should become the pinnacle of your collection, It's very well built,a fantastic trigger, This gun should provide you with years of good shooting/Hunting. Chher's, and Happy Huntin', Andy.

By Richard from USA on 2013-10-08 17:50:00

Things I liked:

The feel of the gun, the way it throughs up. Power and accuracy.

Things I would have changed:

The magazine, the design and better metal quality of the cycling mechanizm. Also, tolerances vary from one rifle to the next. I've given up on the PA and hope to never own another.

What others should know:

The pump action is too abupt, too forceful! I've spent countless hours freeing a jammed magazine from the breech due to a pellet. It cycles better with lenghly round nose pellets. I've returned the 3rd gun Pyramids sent me and hope to never own another. Buy the side lever action AT44 rifle . With a little finese, jams can be avoided.

    Things I liked:

    Sound levels are exceptionally low. Accuracy is high with some pellets, seems outstanding with a few (mine prefers H&N Barracuda Hunters and Extremes). Capacity seems suitable for hunting. Really wangs pellets down range, mine is putting out 35 FPE with most pellets on a full tank. Down to about 28 FPE at the lower end of a tank. Excellent trigger. Comes with open sights!! They are plastic, but I couldn't give a squirt, I'm just happy to have them on a hunting-capable gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's heavy and the weight is forward due to the tank size and shape. Better with a wooden stock, but I'd prefer the center of weight be nearer the middle. Comes with sling mounts, so it's not too much of an issue. The magazines don't rotate most of the time, but it's a simple matter to click it over to the next pellet by hand if it fails. I feel that this is where the money was saved, so I'm not complaining. Tank pressure gauge is on the business end, grab a cheap dentist mirror to avoid that issue. I personally found the synthetic stock uncomfortable, but it has an adjustable butt pad and a forward rail. Forward rail got under my hand, so I removed it. Replacing the stock took all of 5 minutes, just a few bolts and some thread locker.

    What others should know:

    The paint or finish on the magazine alignment pin scraped off, causing it to feel rough. You can avoid this by riding it home and keeping it off the rails. I lubricated the rail, but it still scraped. It can take some practice to hold the mag and rifle with one hand while the other rides the mag trap home, but once the awkward placement is learned, it's very simple. After about 30-40 shots, the FPS drops a small amount per shot and you'll want a refill to maintain accuracy. Be sure to re-tighten the air tank after refill, the stiff hose on a hand pump can twist it out a bit. Hatsan seems like a great company to get parts from, they shipped me a wooden stock on request in no time. Very happy with the rifle, it seems to me to be a more powerful, slightly less expensive alternative to a Marauder.

    Things I liked:

    I was kind of worried about this one. I had purchased a break barrel Hatsan and wound up literally throwing it away. But this PCP was a pleasant surprise. Right out of the box, it shoots 42 plus fpe with no adjustment. And very accurate. Small game beware! I'll definitely buy Hatsan PCP's again.

    Things I would have changed:

    It really is heavy. Since I have arthritis, it wears on me if I try and shoot off hand. But with shooting sticks, no problem at all. I like it.

    What others should know:

    you can use this one for plinking, targets or small game right out of the box. I did put a scope on it since my eyes don't like iron sights... :)

    Verified Purchase

    Things I liked:

    Heavy and robust. Well built.

    Things I would have changed:

    Balance. This is a nose heavy rifle due to the reservoir. When carrying it by its sling, the muzzle tends to rotate about the shoulder. It has to be stabilized by holding onto the stock, which can be cumbersome when out in the field. However, by reversing the sling attachment points, it becomes quite stable with the muzzle down.

    What others should know:

    After setting the sights, open or scope, the barrel needs a good cleaning. There appears to be more gunk than what 20 rounds or so should be leaving. Cleaning though requires removing the shroud to gain access to the muzzle. Doing so impacts the open sights, e.g. the front sight, alignment. Cleaning really helps to optimize the accuracy/groups. It seems to like heavy, e.g. 18 grain, rounds, too. I'll prove that out when I receive my order of JSB pellets.

    Things I liked:

    Hard hitting , hardly any recoil. Only had it a short time, so 35 yds. is the most have had it sighted in for. Puts pellets in bull center every time. Need time to set for 60 yds for back garden. Don't think it will be a problem. That baby spits silent lead fast and true

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have liked a wood stock, I couldn't do a better build.

    Things I liked:

    Power , Accuracy, trigger and sling mounts all really nice

    Things I would have changed:

    When cleaning a little guide mark or alignment mark needs to be incorporated in to the shroud to block design for less difficulty aligning the open sights. Also synthetic stock is fine except I would make it a touch wider after pistol grip, just feels a little narrow compared to wood.

    What others should know:

    Light pellets override moderator but with the power of it 15 to 21 gr pellets fix that and still have accuracy at 100 yards and knock down power.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate. Not priced too high. Like the cocking lever better than a bolt. Also like the adjustable butt plate. Magazines are easy to load. Getting quite a few shots before needing to top off tank.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would like the rifle to be a little lighter, but the weight helps it stay steady. An adjustable cheek riser would be nice.

    Things I liked:

    This air rifle is a straight up great deal. The power and accuracy of this air rifle is absolutely incredible. For such a reasonable price it is really a satisfactory rifle. I am also very fond of the trigger and firing mechanisms. This gun is outstandingly accurate, and from 50 yards with a 10x scope it can shoot dime groupings no problem. This airgun can easily taking down small game and even medium sized game with the right pellets and shot placement. I would recommend running .22 predator polymags with this gun as they worked exceptional for me.

    Things I would have changed:

    This airgun is very loud and the sound could easily be mistaken for a real fire arm, so I would advise caution when shooting. Also the plastic of this gun has a sort of hollow feel in my opinion, but that is no real problem.

    What others should know:

    This airgun is very loud and could possibly scare people and game. The air tank usually shoots 6 mags, so 60 accurate shots before a refill.

    Things I liked:

    The pump action is great. Thumbhole stock is comfortable to the hand. Smooth trigger right out of the box. ACCURATE! Because it is so accurate, it is loads of fun to shoot. MEGA ACCURATE! And powerful, too.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's almost as loud as a "real" .22 rifle. I don't mind, but if decible levels are a concern to you, you may want to consider one of the QE series with the built-in silencer.

    What others should know:

    I purchased the "10 for $10" and scope mount services from Pyramyd when I ordered my .25 AT44PA. The air cylinder arrived filled, so I was able to start shooting immediately! It was dead nuts accurate right out of the case - @ 25 yards the 3rd shot was middle of the bullseye!!! For $10, having PA go over the gun, check for leaks, and test fire it, was money well spent. Any experience level can achieve accuracy with this rifle! A full cylinder will give about 40 solid strong shots - 4 magazines worth! Get a second or third! Enjoying the best shooting using JSB Exact Kings & H&N Barracuda Extreme Hunters - they go where you want them too. And with a THWACK! H&N Barracuda & Silver Points seemed to be too big/long to allow the magazine to load into the file and cycle "cleanly". With these pellets I had a couple of "double shots". I would not recommended them... also, the Predator Polymags, when loaded into the magazine, were too long and the magazine would not load into the rifle.

    Things I liked:

    accurate--good trigger--great feel--quick fallow up shots--comes with 2 mags and the fill adapter--great price--hard hitting--love it

    Things I would have changed:

    put an adjustable comb on it---it is loud a QE version would be outstanding--after some 10000 rds. it started to jam due to the pellets moving rear ward do to the recoil--the fix -- simple -- just put new bands on the mag and the pellets once again are held tight in the mag --

    What others should know:

    this was my first PCP---I won it--I liked this Hatsan I bought 2 more a BT65 AND a AT44 QE LB--I had to put hush puppies on the PA and BT65 both have a really loud bark - but my home made hush puppies really took the bark out of these dogs--I love my Bolton lath and mill**I fill my PCP's from 3000psi scuba tanks it is cheep to fill them--$13.00 including tax here in Utah--good scopes and rings are a must for anything over 20 yrds. which I aero my PCP's at 50 yrds. and use my range finder and shot cards to tell me the number of clicks above or below from 10 out to 150 yrds.

    Things I liked:

    feel of the thumb hole stock is extremely comfortable. I like the Quattro trigger, could be lighter but breaks consistently. The accuracy of this rifle is unbelievable for a pcp rifle at this price point. Threaded barrel end is a great plus, I added the Hatsan air stripper to mine. Great powerful rifle,can't do better if this is your first pcp rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    This gun is LOUD. Not for shooting outside if you have close neighbors. Find some open space for and enjoy this gun.

    What others should know:

    I made some modifications to my rifle and can hit 1050 fps with 25.4 grain .25 caliber JSB's, that's over 60 FPE from a $360 air rifle. I like the pump action magazine. It allows you to keep your gun in a shooting position with your finger on the trigger the whole time, great for follow up shots when hunting. Throw a nice scope on and you're good to go.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a baffled shroud... it is loud! Pretty good at this price point.
