    Things I liked:

    This is a great and fun airgun. Semiautomatic and plenty of power for a pistol. Accurate and easy to shoot as a pistol or with the stock in place. I like the molded hand grip, fits my hand like a glove which makes it easy to control. The built-in forward grip also helps in handling it as an air pistol or with the stock in place. Shot over 200 rounds without a single issue

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing

    What others should know:

    This is not made for left handed shooters. The instructions warn not to shoot it left handed or you could be injured by the bolt. Probably why they made the grip a fitted right hand grip, for safety purposes

    Things I liked:

    Not a whole lot to like about this particular pistol by Hatsan. I had purchased the Hatsan Blitz in .30 cal, and was duly impressed for the most part with the rifle in general, including "fit and finish" (which was pretty good for the most part, but not the best for the price of $1k). About the only thing that was likeable on this gun was the barrel shroud and the standard sights - which I found to be pretty good considering they were plastic. I had no problem sighting it in.

    Things I would have changed:

    Flash and sharp edges all over this pistol - sliced up my fingers pretty good trying to pull back the bolt. Sloppy magazine fit - they do not fit in the gun securely. Don't pull the trigger too fast - it will jam. The folding stock also had sharp edges and flash all over, especially at the picatinny mount. The case that came with it was way too flimsy for the weight of the pistol and folding stock. Just all in all poor quality.

    What others should know:

    Pass on this one - wait for something better or for Hatsan to raise their quality control and standards.

    Things I liked:

    Very Accurate and semi auto. Have put over 2,000 rounds through it and really love it. I like the gun so much that I just ordered a second one.

    Things I would have changed:

    The hammer is always cocked when in storage and not in use. There is no way to uncock it. This results in the hammer spring being compressed. Locking the bolt back puts even more stress on the hammer spring. After awhile the spring takes a set reducing the amount power applied by the hammer. This reduces the power and velocity of the pellets. When the power gets to low the blowback is not enough to advance the magazine causing a misfire and possible jam. Another reviewer wrote that his spring got completely compressed and he had to replace it with one from the hardware store. He did not write a follow up as to whether this was a permanent fix. A way to uncock the hammer would save the spring and make the gun safer to carry.

    What others should know:

    A 4mm hex driver will fit the hammer spring tension adjustment. It is accessed through the hole in the back of the hammer when the stock is removed. Turning it one or two turns counterclockwise will usually increase power enough for the gun to properly cycle. Based on another reviewers comments eventually the spring may gets so compressed that it has to be replaced. I have not gotten to the point where I will have to replace one yet. Jim K.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased this pistol in November, 2020. I did not get to actually try it until right after Christmas when my indoor 5/10/15 meter range was completed and my new compressor was replaced with one that actually worked. Prior to that I assembled the butt stock after trying to hold the pistol and point and aim it without air or pellets. I concluded that it was too unwieldy to be used as a pistol. The stock attached easily and was able to be adjusted down to fit my sight picture. Now the pistol could be held with a target sight in confidence. I tried to fill the magazines. The instructions were difficult to follow. Fortunately there were videos of filling various magazines posted online.

    Things I would have changed:

    Finally the day arrived a few days after Christmas when I got to fill the air chamber and try the pistol. The first attempts were not favorable. The first two magazines had several pellets fail to pass through the barrel and there were two or three pellets caught in the barrel. They cleared easily from the barrel with a cleaning rod. I prefer fire arms but now at my age I need to shoot inside during bad weather. Hence the inside pellet gun range. With a fire arm, if I want to, I can shoot as fast as I can pull the trigger. At least in the beginning, when I tried that, it translated into pellet jams in the Sortie. I learned that there needed to be a slight time lapse or the pellets would not get enough air to pass through the barrel. As I have used the pistol more, this has become less of a problem.

    What others should know:

    I have not yet tried to adjust the sights but from a rest the gun places the pellets consistently in the same small area from ten meters. Overall I enjoy this pistol. It has a learning curve for a person without much experience with PCP air guns. The magazines required educating myself before filling, as the included instructions were hard to follow. I can shoot two magazines of pellets between filling the air chamber. Those of you with greater experience with PCP air guns will probably have less problems in the beginning than myself.

    Things I liked:

    looks, semi-auto, and, oh yeah, looks pretty accurate as well. once it was zeroed - which took a bit of trial, btw - it is about .5" @ 10yd for a mag can shoot 3 mags on one fill, which is good since I use a hand-pump. not too bad with the hand-pump, either Folding stock is comfortable

    Things I would have changed:

    Add easy capability for moderator as it is just a tad too loud to really be backyard friendly. Fortunately, my neighbors are all a little more distant than some and are all okay with it - some have their own plinkers, too, for the nuisance squirrels and blue-jays.

    What others should know:

    Trying to zero was a chore and took about 100 shots. Had the rear sight all the way against the right and still shooting left of target. Had to adjust the front sight left 2-3mm and reset the rear back to the middle and there it was. Have about 500 rounds through it now and works like a champ. Last 1/4" of bolt travel to get it to lock is a bit of a tussle at first, but even that gets easier it seems. Folding stock must be removed to store in case. Really should consider a slightly thicker case since the stock is included. On/off is not too difficult, though.

    What others should know:

    Anticipated purchase for a year. Got Sortie, put 10 round clip in, tried to pull back bolt but it seemed frozen. It wasn't frozen, it just took about 80 pounds of force to pull back. It was so hard to pull it kept jamming two or more pellets at a time. After jamming eight times bolt suddenly broke free and only took 2 or 3 pounds to pull. Loaded 10 round clip fired 5 rounds and bolt stayed in retracted position as if gun had fired last round. Put another 10 round clip in and now both bolt and trigger didn't work. Sent back for refund - do not want replacement.

    The looks, thats about it. The pistol is a piece of garbage, for $550 you think it would have some kinda of quality control.

    Things I liked:

    Action stiff but works perfectly. Have fired about ten clips. Holds air well. Think that if I can get by the sighting problem it will be a wonderful pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    Sights are useless, can not adjust for accurate shooting. Think these same sights are used successfully on Hatsan rifles. Will order a pistol scope in hopes for improvement.

    What others should know:

    Air capacity good for two clips. Definitely not quiet. Has a good feel in hand. Like the fold out stalk.

    Things I liked:

    The title for this review actually should have read Overdue For Prime Time”. However, I cannot call the Sortie a ‘prime time’ product at this time. I do love the airgun. Hatsan is one of my favorite product producers. I own 4 of their long guns They are a bit heavy but are top performers. The Sortie would fit very well into this family. It is comfortable in the hand, fires pellets with high fpe, is very well made and is pretty accurate at short range. As others have said, the semi-automatic function punches out pellets as fast as you can pull the trigger. Then comes the rub.

    Things I would have changed:

    I could not cock this airgun. In order to insert a loaded magazine, the shooter must be able to pull the slide lever back beyond its normal range and up into the parked’ position. I could not manage this feet, although I have no trouble with my Umarex Gauntlet, a notoriously hard airgun to cock. The sortie that I received stops at the edge of the ‘parking notch’ and would not pull back further so that the lever could be pulled back into the ‘parked’ position without using mechanical assistance to accomplish the last quarter inch of travel.

    What others should know:

    This should be a five star review, since I think the Sortie will be a top performer if my particular Sorties problem with cocking turns out to be a one-of-a-kind defect. I will not know that until PA finishes its evaluation of my returned product. I may, indeed, be the only ‘weakling’ who is not strong enough to cock this airgun. However, I have noted a few similar reports on the airgun blogs about the Sortie. I will happily update my review when I know if this issue is a one-off or is systemic. Meanwhile, consider this review ‘preliminary’. As an additional note, I purchased my Sortie on Pyramid Air’s eBay store page because PA was out of stock at the time, as were most other vendors. The purchase and follow up was flawless. I would not hesitate to buy from their eBay store in the future.

    What others should know:

    Exceeded my expectations. Very easy to fill with a hand pump. 30+ usable shots with mine, in .25. Good knock down power for a pcp pistol. I found H&N field target trophy pellets @ 20 grain to be the most accurate and hard hitting, due to the lower velocity, compared to other pcp rifles. It drops small-medium size pests right in their tracks. I mounted a reflex sight on mine, and it does the trick.

    Things I liked:

    semi auto functioned well

    Things I would have changed:

    would like the cocking bolt on the left side of the gun so i can maintain palm weld on my trigger hand, maybe a positive click on inserting the magazine so get feedback that it's in right.

    What others should know:

    fired the 25g h&n slugs no problems as fast as i could squeeze the trigger. one thing make sure you fire empty the magazine or gun as you could double load pellets into the gun if you switch mags in the middle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really..but am going to invest in an electric pump..the hand pump is too much exercise..and 15 shots will drain it

    What others should know:

    For me, works best at the lowest setting for the shoulder brace.. pistol only...too heavy for accuracy

    Things I liked:

    It is a lot of fun to shoot when it works.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the gun dependable. My first one stopped cycling after about 50 shots. I had to manually push the bolt forward in order to fire. I promptly sent it back and Pyramid was great with shipping a new one out to me. The second one sat around for a little while, maybe after 100 shots the magazine jammed in the receiver and I could not remove it. Since this happened after the return period I had to contact Hatsan and they issued me an RMA. I have shipped to them (at a cost to me of $40.00) and am awaiting the repair.

    What others should know:

    Two malfunctions within 6months on the same model should give any potential buyer some food for thought

    What others should know:

    It does not recycle bolt far enough to let the next pellet move to the chamber. It needs to be worked on to make it a semi auto.

    Things I liked:

    The LOOK ... just one look and I wanted to so love this gun, especially since having just purchased (and loving!) the Hatsan Hercules Bully in .357 ... what a beautiful 'matched set pair' the 2 would make, I thought. On unboxing the Sortie, I got a sick feeling as soon as I saw and touched one of the cheap plastic spring-loaded magazines, as I had seen the same ones on the Hatsan Bullmaster, which I had also previously purchased, but arrived damaged in shipment to me.THESE MAGAZINES DO NOT LOAD OR FUNCTION PROPERLY ! I loaded 1 mag into the Sortie, with difficulty, then fired 3 shots, followed by a complete jam, resulting in inability to fire, move charging lever, or remove the magazine. UNFORTUNATELY, THE LOOK IS THE ONLY FEATURE OF THIS GUN I LIKED. I have no clue as to the accuracy, as I had no chance to test it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I realize that some energy has to come from 'somewhere' in order for proper semi-automatic functioning in any gun ... the system that Hatsan is using in the Bullmaster and Sortie is totally flawed and needs complete re-thinking. CHEAP/PLASTIC/SPRING-LOADED DOES NOT WORK. The system of the side-lever repeater used in the Hercules Bully DOES WORK ... METAL/LOCKING IN-PLACE. No, it's not semi-automatic, but Hatsan DOESN'T MAKE A SEMI-AUTO THAT WORKS. And with the Sortie costing ~$500, they have to be kidding!!!

    What others should know:

    Who would want to buy 'just another backyard plinker', in low caliber, that doesn't function well, or at-ALL, FOR $500 ???? Not me. I returned that thang for full refund ASAP, and would recommend all serious airgunners to avoid even THINKING about buying one of these ..... you just have to close your eyes and FORGET ABOUT HOW COOL IT LOOKS, AND NOT BUY IT! Hatsan was not the only ones to disappoint me regarding a handgun. I also purchased a Weihrauch HW45 , a very highly-rated spring piston design, also costing ~$500, and found it to be a very weak and expensive (but good looking) backyard plinker, as well. I also promptly returned it, AS I AM DONE WITH BACKYARD PLINKERS ... I HAVE A WHOLE CLOSET FULL OF THEM! All these attempts at finding a good looking, powerful, semi-auto, PCP or spring piston, and reliable handgun, to possibly consider for personal defense resulted in THIS: I finally just went ahead and purchased a nice 1911 .45 cal. TO DATE, NO AIRGUNS CAN COMPARE TO THIS CLASSIC
