Things I liked:

thank you pyramid air. recieved my hatsan flash .25 6 days from placing my order. in good condition, full of air, with all the expected accessories, and the balance of my order.unbelievable that you could send me correct rings[that you suggested], and four tins [total 650 or so] of pellets for less than $ 312.00 . total, rifle and all. your discount, and coupons are EXELLENT.still grinning over the free shipping.having shot 50 or so rounds last night and this morning i am VERY pleased with this rifle.bought a maximus last year. did some things well, others not so much.after a great deal of research, chose you and the flash .25. will buy my next air rifle from you, and will not even look anywhere else for pellets.the flash shot a 3/4 inch group @ 75 yards this morning, first one i tried with standard weight jsb pellets. the power is a pleasant surprise. feels like mid 30's ft lbs. knowing i can turn up the striker spring to mid 40's without spending any more money is great

Things I would have changed:

i would feel like a curmudgeon to complain after getting a very quiet, suppressed repeating, accurate and powerful air rifle in .25 cal.in this price range. the improved " red star" mags are challenging to press in, but feed well once fitted into the right spot .if another fitting w/ female threads were included to fit all/ most air supply devices it would make an exellent product even better

What others should know:

for those of you who like me who have never owned an air rifle larger or more powerful than standard .177 springer or .22 springer or maximus, be careful w/ this thing this is the maximum amount of power i would ever use in a back yard situation. it is deceptively quiet for it's power. this could easily kill by accident.i have been a 40 yr hunter and shooter, and own more than 40 projectile launching tools ,also a caster and a reloader, not a [noob] many of said tool will cleanly harvest anything that walks this continent. this amazing tool fills a LARGE gap, of quietness, saftey ,controlled range and in my opionion will harvest anything up to 65 lbs with a steady head shot and heavy pellets to 55-65 yrds when spring is adjusted to 45 ft lbs.it has the accuracy if you have the skill.

    Things I liked:

    Nice power and decent accuracy. Nice weight and balance.

    Things I would have changed:

    At least the one that I have often double loads making the bolt action repeat function unreliable. It also leaks down in three or four days requiring more pumping. In contrast my Diana PCP holds air indefinitely.

    What others should know:

    MY Hatsan had the potential to be a great product. But it can not meet the most basic requirement of an air rifle, which is to hold air. Unfortunately, this and lack of quality control reduces it to just another also ran.

    Things I liked:

    Weight, styling and seems to be pretty accurate, although I have not had a chance to shoot a longer distances yet.

    Things I would have changed:

    Provide fill probe adapter in the box or change to a Foster fitting. Magazines are a PITA to load. You have to load pellets skirt first from the back. Improve the trigger. Plastic trigger that doe not adjust light enough and has creep. Harder to shoot accurately offhand. Add sling swivel studs.

    What others should know:

    Order a quick connect adapter for the fill probe with the gun. Lube o-rings on fill probe and the magazines with silicone grease.

    First PCP and now I know what all the fuss is about. 5 shots to get pretty good zero. Next 5 at 25 yards fit under a nickel and next 5 at 50 little over a quarter. Out of the box with a cheap scope i had on a 177 springer and this dude is a tack driver. Oh yeah with Crossman hollow points cheapest pellets I have. Very pleased really fun best trigger I've ever used on any gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP air gun and I love it! Very quiet and enough power to drive through a 3/4 piece of plywood at 25 yards. Waiting on better weather so I can chronograph it and find its sweet spot and get it zeroed in. The staff at Pyramid Air was very helpful with a couple of questions I had. Over all a very nice gun.

    A nice PCP if your starting out. I am now hooked.

    Things I liked:

    Have put about 500 rounds through the flash with zero problems. This is a hunting gun only and the power and accuracy is outstanding. Not too pellet picky but found JSB Hades are an awesome combination with the Flash. The trigger is also very good and easily adjustable.

    Things I would have changed:

    The finish and blueing isn't great but its not a $1000 gun also.

    What others should know:

    Would highly recommend especially if your planning to rid critters or hunt.

    Things I liked:

    The Hatsan Flash QE is my first PCP and I love it! I love shooting and in the past 5 years truly became passionate about air rifles and pistols. I have break barrel and CO2 rifles and pistols but haven't enjoyed them as much as this extraordinary .25 caliber rifle. After sighting the scope (purchased separately) in the backyard I was able to shoot a 1/2 inch group at 75 yards while standing and using a small tree branch as a rest. The Flash QE comes with the best trigger I've ever used - and the accuracy shows the value of the Quattro trigger. Also came with 2 X 10 round rotary mags, a shot tray, fill probe, and a few o-rings. Compared to other air rifles, it's a feather at only 6 pounds (without scope). I must mention that the first Flash QE I received had an leak near the pressure gauge. The Pyramyd Air Customer Service was excellent and made it easy to return the first and get this extraordinarily accurate air rifle into my hands.

    What others should know:

    So glad I jumped up to .25 caliber as it is more wind resistant and carries the foot pounds energy down range so much better than the 177's I previously shot. Although it is quiet, you will have to find a place other than your backyard to truly enjoy this gun because it begs for 75+ yards!

    Things I liked:

    Appears to be a solid well-made gun. I had originally ordered a Diana stormrider but had issues with it that included leaking air and barrel that was cocked off to the left. I returned that gun to PyramydAir for a refund. I was distressed about this situation since this was my first attempt at PCP. Now I am happy that it did not work out. The Hatsan flash is a far superior air rifle. It was worth spending the extra money. So far with about a hundred and fifty pellets through it it has been accurate and reliable. No air leaks at all. I will be using this gun primarily for hunting small game and I'm glad I got the 25 caliber. Have shot four squirrels with it and as long as you hit them somewhere in the vitals they don't go anywhere. 5 shot groups mainly staying under an inch with JSB King 25.39 and H&N Barracuda Hunter pellets usually staying under an inch. H&N Barracuda Hunter extremes did not do so well in my gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Magazine sits high enough where high scope mounts are needed. Hatsan does not include a quick disconnect so if you want one you will need to order it. They are $9.99 on Pyramidair

    What others should know:

    I am getting a very usable shot string out of this 25 caliber. Pumped the gun up to 200 bar which is relatively easy. Then I proceeded to shoot 30 times without refilling. This time I had the target set at 38 yards which is as far out as I could put it. Surprisingly on shots 26 to 30 4 of those shots were inside the one inch bullseye. One was just slightly out of the bullseye on the bottom increasing the shot spread to 3/4 of an inch. I'm sure at longer distances there would be much more of a drop but this shot stream is more than adequate for my hunting. I rarely need more than 10 shots per trip. Really don't see it necessary to fill all the way up to 200 bar for my needs.

    Things I liked:

    This rifle is my first pcp air rifle and I can say i am quite pleased and impressed with the rifle. I currently have it sighted in at 40 yards and it has performed amazingly here, despite snowy Colorado weather. It is extremely quiet when it comes to firing the rifle. Honestly I am super excited to try it out when rabbit season here arrives. The rifles functions are very simple, and in easy reach as well, I really like the idea of a bolt action instead of a break barrel air rifle too. Ive owned the rifle for almost a month and I can say I am definitely going to buy it again when the time arrives.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I would change on this rifle really is the bolt action. The actual bolt knob itself is quite odd to grab at first. Its Something you definitely will need to get used to but once you find your own method it works really well. Anyways I was thinking if it just had a smooth end to it. Like a traditional hunting rifle that might make chambering the rifle a bit more comfortable on your hands.

    What others should know:

    I love this gun, and I definitely recommend it as a first pcp rifle for new pcp air gunners. I do highly recommend you get high standing 1 inch scope mounts. Pictanny or Weaver mounts. The reason for that is because of the rotary magazine, If the scope is not high enough it will be in the way of the magazine. Another thing I recommend is actually a pump for this rifle. The GX hand pump is the one i use and I am quite happy with that as well. If you do end up getting this pump for the rifle you Will need an adapter piece for it though.

    What others should know:

    This gun is a great concept but it is in no way worth the 300 it costs. It is not accurate, the bolt is terrible, the magizine is so loose sometimes you will double load it. I really hate saying this because the gun is light and narrow but the Gauntlet is a way better gun then this for the same price.

    What others should know:

    I've been building high powered rifles for 40yrs.Custom Douglas barrels, Mauser actions, Leopold scopes. Rule #1,always try to get the scope as close to the barrel as possible without touching. The way the magazine fits WOW.. unbelievable. It's beyond retarded, it's like Neanderthal, perhaps a retarded Neanderthal would design something this idiotic. Nothing against pyramydair, they do a great job but i wouldn't except this thing for free. Melt it down and start over Hatsan or give it up. SGT jimj US Army ranger. SUPPORT OUR VET'S!!

    Things I liked:

    Quiet, powerful, 2 magazines, single shot adapter, feels good when shouldered. I like the smaller air reservoir because I hand pump. Very powerful in 25 Cal.

    Things I would have changed:

    Hatsan rectified the problem with the magazines and sent me 2 new red magazines at no charge. There seemed to be a problem cycling with original magazines.

    What others should know:

    This rifle is much more powerful than it seems. Consequently handle it as you would any firearm. Use same precautions as with any firearm.
