Things I liked:

I have the .25 cal. It's very accurate out to 40 yards ( I only have a 40 yard range). I fill it to about 180 bar and shoot 2 magazines 18 shots to about 150 bar. I am able to keep 3/4 inch groups getting 840 fps. Very happy with it and continuously working with the air charge to see if it gets better.

Things I would have changed:

Make it so it doesn't move in the forearm of the stock to keep it more stable

What others should know:

Well worth the money keep the trigger links clean and lubed for smoother trigger pull.

Things I liked:

Nothing about the gun but pa is a good company to work with very helpful.

Things I would have changed:

The stock is trash and poorly made the fill prob leaks unless you put pressure on it and the air cylinder is very loose ever after hand tighten it its still loose.

What others should know:

The wood stocked bullboss maybe better made the biggest issue i had was the air cylinder i understand some play but there was so much i cant say much for the accuracy i didnt get to shoot it.

    Things I liked:

    I bought the .25 Very well balanced rifle, a little heavy though. like the adjustable cheek pad. very accurate at 50 to 75 yards and even 100 yards I have used it in compitition, can get around 75 shots off and then it starts to drop some. great plinker or will easily kill rabbits small game. use the tripod many times.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    well worth the money, I have the .25 and its does what it is supposed to do. buy a good scope also. I had a hand pump and bought a air compressor, worth the money

    Things I liked:

    The compact size! :-) hard hitting, and accuracy!

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger pull is a little heavy, even after adjustments. It should ease over time.

    What others should know:

    Great compact gun that is extremely fun to shoot. Please purchase one if you haven't!

    Things I liked:

    The Bullboss is well balanced and a blast to shoot. I have read many people saying how heavy this gun is and it is a bit heavy but very well balanced. The lever cocking action is very smooth as is the trigger. Really enjoy how powerful it is (.22cal) as it packs quite a punch. Nicely accurate. Solid gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not wild there was no printed owners manual. It really needs one. The air fill probe is kinda squirrely and a bit hard to get used to.

    What others should know:

    So much fun for the money. I would buy again.

    Things I liked:

    I like that it's short and looks good.

    Things I would have changed:

    It felt very heavy and unrefined. From the trigger to the cocking lever it just felt very rough. Nothing smooth about this Rifle.

    What others should know:

    After about 5 shots the magazine stopped rotating so I couldn't chamber a pellet. I needed a high mount for the scope just to get a direct line of site to my scope. I'm at the process of returning this. I really didn't like it. And for something to go wrong right away shows very poor quality control.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate. Well balanced. I really like that the cocking lever is forward and a natural location for your hand to move to after taking a shot. Its also relatively quiet.

    Things I would have changed:

    The cocking action is a little rough. We will see if it smoothes out after a few hundred shots. The second stage of the trigger is too long and too stiff for my liking, so I will be adjusting that. I really do not like the magazine. The pellets catch on the second rubber band, and they are hard to push in. I am not big on the filling probe, but it works fine so far.

    What others should know:

    Great rifle! Powerful, accurate, consistent and fun to shoot. I prefer the fit and finish on my Avenger, but this is still a favorite.

    Things I liked:

    Just got my BullBoss and so far it has lived up to my expectations. It's accurate and packs a punch for a 25 cal. I researched for a while and was almost turned off by the negative reviews I saw. I chalk it up for personal preference more than the gun itself. I'm new to PCP's and only have the Hatsan Vectis to compare to. That being said I think the only negative thing I see is the price and even that is not bad. I'm satisfied as a customer and would recommend this gun as a good purchase.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price

    What others should know:

    I use a hand pump and it could be a workout for some who don't have the stamina or strength. I'm 65, 250 and in good shape so no prob for me.

    Things I liked:

    This is my first pcp and I like it! I have a gamo breakbarrel in .22cal and it's been my go to for rodents that like to get into my home and vehicles, but after purchasing this bullboss in .25 I'm hooked. Charging it with a hand pump is a bit of a workout, but it works for now.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger has an extremely long pull which at some point will get addressed.

    What others should know:

    This thing Is Not a Toy!!! It's very powerful for an air rifle. Actually a bit overkill for rodents

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    The fact you can exchange the air tanks with different calibers, makes it a good option for buyers; and also you get enough fps and pounds.

    Things I liked:

    The way you shoulder this rig negates the weight. I have the bipod and the accushot 4x16x40 scope mounted and when it's on your shoulder it is VERY well balanced. This thing is a nail driver. So far it has allowed me to produce sub 1" groups out to 50 yards with the occasional flyer. Trigger pull weight and length easily adjustable. I love this thing.

    Things I would have changed:

    The next size up (higher) scope mounts. Took a little bit of shooting to get used to holding my head down closer to cheek weld.

    What others should know:

    I purchased the regulator for a more consistent shot string I think its worth every penny.. still have to shoot through chronograph but the groups tightened up after adjusting hammer spring.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent accuracy right out of the box (see attached photo). Easy to make adjustments if you want. Picatinny rails are nice touch. Pleasing looking gun, with good balance of weight distribution.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish the butt pad was adjustable as the Gladius, can be overlooked though due to lower price. Adjustable cheek piece may not be as usable as one might think depending on height of scope mounts used. Goes through too many pellets.........because it is so fun to shoot, you run through full magazines quickly :) Could loose a bit of weight honestly, but again, it is not a negative selling point unless you intend to carry all day scoped and with bipod.

    What others should know:

    Wish PA would become a certified repair center for Hatsan air rifles. PA was very good to deal with, and offered the best price available-Thank you!

    Things I liked:

    this is a 6 month review, this was my first pcp and i thought long and hard before buying the bullboss, i have absolutely no regrets, hits hard, accurate, removable air cylinder, swivel studs, durable, looks cool, powerful.

    Things I would have changed:

    its heavy, open sites would be nice, add a magazine compartment like the gladius, i never received the sling it was supposed to come with.

    What others should know:

    the cocking lever was very gritty when cycling rounds, wasnt smooth at all even after cleaning and lubing, after a couple months of using its now smooth as can be, i think it had something to do with the mags but not sure, the gun screws worked themselves loose and threw the accuracy off until i realized what was happening, i haven't picked up my break barrels since getting this Hatsan, now i can never back.

    Things I liked:

    I have this in .25 caliber. This rifle is a beast. Powerful, accurate and sturdy. If it were a firearm, it would be an AK-47. I consistently hit a soda can at 100 yards. I used to shoot firearms quite a bit, now I move firearms out of the way in order to get to the Bullboss to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing because less weight would mean more money

    The gun is a really heavy gun but it has a good weight feel like it's not built cheap.

    Things I liked:

    Just about everything, I get the best groups when Im at 160 to 140 bar 1/2 to 3/4 at 40 yards JSB and H&N shot the best for me JSB are around 1$ more but they cycle though so much better I would recommend them. all weigh 26gr and up shot around the same.

    Things I would have changed:

    There is a long Plastic Guide for the cocking arm flexes when you cock the gun would be much better if it were metal (like on the Gladius).

    What others should know:

    Get a regulator will have much more fun shooting and will still kill all critters up to raccoon. With out the 1 in 6 wild shot when jacked up to 200 bar

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, robust, bullpup configuration, adjustable trigger. Holds zero in temperature swings. Easy to tune. Will give you an honest 900+FPS with Barracuda Hunter pellets in .25 caliber with 2 turns from max hammer adjustment. I do like the look of the gun a lot and with a DFL Ronin LCD on the end which clipped like crazy till I drilled it out looks like a Howitzer and pretty freaking cool. It will turn heads when pulled out of the bag I promise.

    Things I would have changed:

    Regulator from the factory should have been installed before bringing to market. Gun has been gifted to my son who regulated it and I replaced this .25 with the Avenger this is factory regulated. The Bullboss is said to get 30 Optimum shots...I never got more than 18 rounds out before the air needed replaced. Make this gun quieter and more efficient on air consumption. Avenger has the same size air cylinder and gets double the shots or better from what I have seen in videos. I am no fan of the safety and really wish it did not have it where it is in front of the trigger. Yes it does become second mature but I never ever use a guns safety. If the mag is left in the gun with last round spent then the gun can not fire so safety switch is pointless to me and I really hate auto safeties.

    What others should know:

    If you want a regulated gun...this aint that. If you want light weight...it aint that either. It is reliable, accurate and without a compressor you will be able to cancel your gym membership Using a hand pump because it is an air hog. If using a fill tank get a big one for any extended time at the range. It also helps to tether your fill bottle to the gun when shooting long distance to help with the massive drops in air pressure from the onboard air cylinder which I think should have been bigger. Get extra outings for the valve on the business end of the guns air cylinder. They are tiny and when the gun sounds like a cannon it needs replaced. Easy to fix. Great cold weather gun and will hold air forever.

    Things I liked:

    Everything about the gun itself. It fits me well, the trigger is awesome once I got it adjusted, it has surprising power, even at 90 yards..... I've been slobbering over this gun for two years, and although I wish I could have afforded the Gladius, the Bullboss is not bad. I have shot the Baracuda Green out of this, but they tend to jam the magazine if you're not careful. Baracuda Hunter Extreme work well, but only out to 50 yards. After that they lose stability. Gonna try some slugs and different pellet weights soon.

    Things I would have changed:

    The FILL PROBE!!!!! Why on God's green earth did Hatsan use a SLIDING probe system, rather than a quick connect or threaded system??!!

    What others should know:

    You will HAVE to buy different O-rings for the fill probe. I tried gun oil, Vaseline, mineral oil, grease, gear lube, and anything else I had on hand that might seal them up enough to reach 200 BAR. NOTHING WORKS! I don't know why, but Hatsan dropped the ball on this one item. McMaster-Carr carries the ones you need. #009, .070. Get the oil resistant ones. $9.95 for 25 of them.
