Things I liked:

Awesome PCP rifle I have the Benjamin Armada and the Hatsan Bull Boss but now the Hatsan Vectis is my new favorite PCP. I really like the lever action. I have a 22 Cal Henry and it’s a blast, and the Vectis is just as much fun but a lot cheaper to shot. It’s a little louder than I expected and although it has quieted down a bit some may question its back-yard friendliness. I don’t have a Decibel reader and my chrony is not working properly so I haven’t really “put the screws to it yet”, but I have shot 400 rounds through it in the 2 days since I received it. Not a single jam and every pellet went down range. Although I haven’t really tested the accuracy yet I did mount a CP red dot on it just to test the fun factor and consistently shot cans at 45 yards as fast as I could work the lever action. Did I say it’s fun to shoot? It’s light, ergonomic and easy on the eyes. I’m using the JSB Exact King .25 Cal 25.39 and there’s not question as to whether or not the can was hit. Hatsan states that its putting out somewhere around 40 FPE and by the sound of the pellet hitting that can I would have to say there’re spot on. I’m filling it with the Air Venturi Nomad 1. Inside 40 yards I can shoot 3-10 round mags and stay on target. When I get my chrony working, or buy another one, I’ll do some proper testing and get back to you. My opinion is that Hatsan knocked this one out of the park!

Things I would have changed:

A manual would be nice. The manual that comes with the Vectis is not for the Vectis, it’s for the Hatsan Flash. I don’t know why Hatsan did this other than to wait and see if this PCP was going to be a “HIT” before spending the money on making a different manual. There are subtle differences though. Adjusting the trigger, trigger guard only has one access hole, lever action and cocking before the initial filling. The manual states do not cock when filling but the additional instructions state “cock before initial fill”. Instructions for loading the mag are not correct either, and if they are, they are somewhat confusing. Other than that, I think that Hatsan has done a superb job on the Vectis.

Things I liked:

Readability of the BUIS is nice. It has held 200 Bar for two weeks before I tried to shoot this gem.

Things I would have changed:

Ii could NOT get the magazines to function -- It's probably me. The instructions aren't clear enoujgh for me; and, I'm too old to get this by osmosis. I think the 4 star accuracy rating I gave was because my mind was blown because the mags messed up on me. For me my Hatsan Vectis Lever action (repeater) is a single shot. I couldn't get all the pellets out of the mags without breaking them. I haven't broke them yet -- what's the cost of a few pellets, compared with mags?

What others should know:

Maybe the above should go here.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate ! No recoil at all. This gun shoots as good with cheap hardware store wad cutter, round nose, and hollow point .22 pellets as pricey bronze tip hornets do. Not a picky eater so far. Hits hard. About 90 pumps to fill by hand. The stock design points well for a left handed shooter like me. Decent trigger out of the box. Light flicks work the lever action. Not a long stroke like a Winchester lever, just a nice little movement - about 1/2 of a Winchester style rifle. I like it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Too much tacti-plastic styling for my taste. A better moderator would be nice. The moderator is not really good at moderating & looks kinda strange. Not backyard friendly at all. A pretty good bang. I chopped mine off & put a DonnyFL moderator on the barrel threads already on the Vectis. The whack of the hammer & the clank of the target are the only sounds you hear now. The plastic folding sights did not work so well for me. Something made from metal would be better. I put an old Center Point 6x18 x40mm I had laying around on some med height rings & it works well.

    What others should know:

    Worth the price of admission for sure ! Shoots way better than I was expecting in this price range. Destroys the little metal rams, pigs, and chickens with both Crosman Premier's 14.3 gr round nose and hollow point pellets. Get a compressor. This thing is fun !

    Things I liked:

    My first air rifle in 15 years or so and also my first PCP. I've had it two weeks and it feels like a great value. The cocking handle and overall build quality is a hard durable plastic. I've shot .25 cal FX slugs and Diabolo pellets so far and both are very accurate between 10-25 yards. The magazines load and chamber well. The gun holds its pressure (2 weeks so far holding 200bar). Really enjoy it! My wife is asking for one that is a bit lighter to hold, it can tire you out if not using a rest.

    Things I would have changed:

    The iron sights aren't secure and wobble a few millimeters when the gun moves around. They are tight to the rail, but the fiber part itself flexes to much. The moderator at the end doesn't help much and the gun is very loud. I shot it once and put it away until I got a custom silencer to quiet it down to be backyard friendly. With the new sights and moderator it feels like a complete gun.

    Things I liked:

    For the short amount of time I've owned the Vectis it's been a ton of fun, with a few minor bumps in the road. It's lever action fun and has big time power in the .25 caliber which is what I purchased! Obliterates anything in its path!

    Things I would have changed:

    Here is what is keeping this gun from being perfect: #1) if you are using this gun as a less lethal option for home defense, then do know that the only way to keep the gun ready to fire at a moments notice is to have it cocked which means the gun is constantly "charged" the entire time thus potentially causing wear to inner seals when not in use. The ONLY way to avoid this is to have the magazine detatched from the gun until needed -OR- the alternative I am doing is loading the magazine, having the gun cocked, then firing the first pellet (thus wasting it) and only THEN it's ready to cock again if needed for self defense. #2) The gun came with copious amount of spare O-Rings but the instructions say zilch about where they go to or how to change them out. #3) WHY DOESN'T THE MANUL STATE HOW TO DECOCK THE GUN?? Spent an hour of googling to find out how to decock it and this should be included in the instructions! C'mon Hatsan! #4) THE GUN IS AN AIR HOG. Prepare to refill every 3rd mag!!!

    What others should know:

    The last thing I'll mention is the rear sight that came with the gun had parts come loose almost immediately due to perhaps bad craftsmanship from the factory. I reached out to Hatsan and a replacement was sent hassle-free.

    Things I liked:

    Super easy lever action. Accurate out of box.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's loud and although you can modify it to accept a suppressor it will void the warrenty. Magazines could be better.

    What others should know:

    Lots of fun to shoot. Uses lots of air so shot count between fills is small. Fill adapter does not come with a foster fitting.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    Went hunting with this gun and dispatched various small game. Very good for just target shooting to 50 yards with the right ammo.

    A bit on the heavy side to lug around all day, w/ a scope, and bipod.

    Things I liked:

    This is an excellent rifle. Everything worked fine. Tested it at 30 yrds. Shot 30 shots at that range and all pellets hit the target with no problem. Installed a Hammers 6x32AO IR mildot scope on it and rifle still light. Well built. Tactical looking. Not backyard friendly. The action is smooth and easy. Magazines work fine. Love to see one in big bore.

    Things I would have changed:

    The open sights are not good for precision target shooting.

    What others should know:

    Great product. First magazine shoots at an average of 861fps with 25.39gr pellet. Second magazine shoots at an average of 823fps and the third magazine shoots at an average of 767fps. With 26gr you get 40FPE at the muzzle on first shot.

    Things I liked:

    I like everything on this rifle. Using 25.39gr JSB Exact King .25cal pellets I zeroed the rifle quickly at 30 yards using a Hammers 6x32AO mildot scope. I shot 55 pellets testing the rifle. The rifle is very accurate. First magazine shoots at an average of 861fps. Second magazine shoots at an average of 823fps and the third magazine shoots at an average of 767fps. You get 30 shots from 200bar down to 100bar. All shots were dead on at 30 yards. The rifle is light, compact, and well built. Lot of plastic on this rifle. Magazines work fine. Cocking is very light and easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only negative I find on this rifle are the open sights. At 25 yards the open sight covers almost completely a 5 1/2in. square target. Can not see the bulls eye to shoot with precission. May work at close ranges 5yards to 10 yards.

    What others should know:

    You can shoot a pig in the brain with this rifle and kill it. The rifle is good quality and performs nicely out of the box. A little loud. Not back yard friendly.

    Things I liked:

    Lever action - its unique. Pop up sights. Long rail top rail - have not mounted scope yet but intend to mount high scope so can use sights and scope. Fiber optic dots in sights - quick to get on target with proper sight picture and alignment. Front post kind of big but would not trade fiber optic for smaller dot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add mounting points for sling. UYse a dust cover instead of plug for air charging inlet. Lever action is kind of mushy and wimpy. John Wayne would be calling out the Hatsan pilgrims for being lily livered.

    What others should know:

    Lever lock devise built into the lever came apart after less than 40 rounds. Not that critical for plinking but for hunting? A lot of jambing with Stoeger X- Power and X-Field with magazines and single shot tray. So much jambing I was going to call Smuckers. Less jambing with Crossman copper coated from magazine. No jambing with Crossman using single feed. Shot 140 rounds so still breaking in possibly. Good groups - shooting at 40 yards. 3/4" dot with iron sights is beyond my eyesight but tried it anyway and put most shots on paper. Gets about 25 good shots per air charge. Takes about 85 pumps with hand pump to fill. Trigger crisp out of box. Might adjust later. Good balance. Shoulders nicely.. Hand holds grippy but not rough. I would buy the 22 cal if I did it again - pellets are bigger for clumsy fingers.
