Massive power! Isn't that the No. 1 reason you buy a big bore air rifle? That's what you'll get with the Hatsan BT Big Bore Carnivore.

Lots of manufacturers make big bore rifles, but many of them are single-shots. But the Carnivore is a repeater. And a muffled one at that! This monster comes with an integral silencer that shuts down the report by a whopping 50%. You get power, quiet and multiple shots.

While you can plink all day with this fun gun, you probably want to do some hunting. Foot-pounds will vary by the grain weight of your projectile. However, Hatsan has stated you should get about 75 ft-lbs. of energy with the .30-caliber gun and 95 ft-lbs. with the .357-caliber gun. That gives you a good amount of power to take animals at longer distances or some larger critters at closer distances. So, if you have some pests you want to clear out but can't get close enough to use your smallbore rifles, then bring out the big guns and show 'em what the Carnivore is all about!

The Air Venturi 118-grain and 127-grain pellets are too long for the 9mm/.357 cal. magazine. Do not try them in this rifle. The Air Venturi 95-grain and 115-grain hollowpoint pellets and the 105-grain flat point pellets fit the magazine.

Things I liked:

Accuracy is really good. and the gun looks good. Adjustable trigger is a big plus

Things I would have changed:

The baffle system it does keep the gun quiet. But I had some issues with mine effecting the accuracy.

What others should know:

If the gun is not shooting accurate, try taking the baffles out and leave the muzzle cap off and see if accuracy improves then you will know what the problem is btw mine shoots 3/4 inch groups at 55 yards using JSB 81 grain pellets with the baffles out

Things I liked:

I knew these rifles were around. I have a heavily tuned Recluse .357, tuned by Will Piatt. RIP Will. But I wanted something a little more tamed, polite? My son in law bought an FX MK3. I saw the FX Crown made 90 fpe and 955 fps. So I splurged and bought one. $2700, with scope! A total waste of money! It made 46.6 fpe. FORTY SIX! I know a airgunner in Leetonia Ohio. He said he had a .30 cal Carnivore, used and tuned. Since I had al lot or .30 cal JSB's, I made a deal, a good deal. This rifle filled the void I wanted. My first shot I was convinced. It shot that JSB 44.75 955 and 86. Filled at 200 bar I run through two seven shot mags and it runs down to 140. I have my beast Recluse at the top, the Carnivore then my sweet Hatsan Neuron Star, also tuned, bringing up the rear. That joke FX? It sits all by itself in the closet. I'll sell for $1500.

Things I would have changed:

I'm handicapped and this rifle is heavy. I took the stock off and even though it's plastic it weighed more than the rifle. I may look into doing some shaving. Maybe Hatsan can come up with a woody? The sidelever is a big improvement over that joke rear bolt. The open metal mags are a little tricky but I'll get used to them. Seven shots, the .357 holds 6, there's room for a larger mag.

What others should know:

There are rifles that make more power, are lighter but cost more. I like the traditional look. Metal, and wood. That's why I like my Recluse and Neutron Star. The Carnivore is plastic, but at least it has a stock! Son in laws Fx 3 looks like a buzz gun from a sci fi movie. Not for me. And I'm pretty sure my Neutron Star makes more power. 975 and 69.8 using a 34 grain FX? Recluse, 215 and 940 using g 146 grain. I like power, now I have it. Groundhogs are on alert!

Would like to have little more power for Deer and big game hunting.
