Hatsan Flashpup QE PCP Air Rifle
With big power in a small package, Hatsan enters the fray of affordable PCPs with the Hatsan Flashpup, a compact and highly-maneuverable version of the full-sized Flash PCP Air Rifle.
The Flash PCP platform strikes just in time to take advantage of a slew of accessible PCPs that don’t skip on quality features and accessories. Powered by a fixed 165cc volume aluminum air cylinder with a 200 BAR fill pressure (2,900psi), the Flashpup slings its rounds at speeds up to 1250, 1120, and 900fps in its .177, .22, and .25 calibers. This power corresponds to a delivery of 29, 38, and 40 fpe in .177, .22, and .25 caliber.
The powerplant is set into a finely grained ambidextrous hardwood stock that includes a pistol grip and adjustable cheekpiece to ensure proper eye relief and a comfortable hold. Resting under the foregrip is a Weaver/Picatinny accessory rail for mounting a bipod, and a combination Weaver/Dovetail mount is ready for the optics system of your choice.
The Flashpup features Hatsan’s celebrated 2-stage fully adjustable match Quattro trigger system, ensuring your trigger pulls are to your preference and break clean and smooth. Each caliber includes a single shot tray and two indexing magazines so you can spend less time reloading and more time taking shot after shot. Taking advantage of Hatsan’s QuietEnergy (QE) system, the Flashpup uses a fully-moderated barrel to quiets your shots, making it an ideal backyard target shooter and small game hunter.
Hatsan enters the affordable PCP market with a bullpup that provides the same quality features and design of higher end PCPs. If you’re ready for a highly mobile, backyard-friendly shooter that goes anywhere you can, bolt for that buy button and make the Flashpup yours!

Things I liked: The gun shoots well, is spot on accurate and wisper quiet. The bolt action lever is fairly easy to operate imo. The wood stock is beautiful and has a nice finish. The .25 version packs alot of power I highly recommend it. The gun is compact and easy to hold. The air cylinder is high quality and holds pressure fine. I received my rifle filled to 3000psi even after going through the mail system.
Things I would have changed: The magazine needs to fit the rifle withough wobbling.
Things I liked: Weight, velocity, look, stock, accuracy.
Things I would have changed: Ergonomics, not user friendly to load mag, and awkward to cock. Really wish it came with side lever instead of stupid bolt. Also a bit louder than I had wished for.
What others should know: Give it an easy to use side lever with quieter operation it would be all you could ask for at triple the cost!
Things I liked: Arrived full of air! This lets you know that the gun is pressure-tight. This bullpup is very light. My recommendation is to keep it that way by using a light weight scope, something one pound or under. If you do, you will have a gun that you can carry through the woods all day. This is no small thing, as so many PCP rifles seem to weigh a metric ton. The FlashPup QE comes out of the box an accurate, hard-hitting beast that does not need or want any further tuning. The wood is decent, and the fit and finish of the metal parts is very nice. It's hard to believe that such a nice gun costs so little. The picatinny rail under the forestock can be used for a bipod, but I like attaching a forend pistol grip. I find this setup very comfortable for offhand shooting. The foregrip can be folded flat for shooting from a bag rest. I will submit a photo. Also, due to the smallish air reservoir and the low fill pressure, the FlashPup is fast and easy to refill with a hand pump.
Things I would have changed: The first guns were reported to have loose magazines. The new red mags were said to be the answer. My FlashPup came with the red mags, but they are too tight! Not only that, you have to move the magazine around with one hand while holding the cocking lever back with the other hand while you try to find the hole for the probe to go through the mag...every time you change the mag! Once in place it works fine for every shot, but the magazine is not shaped to fit where it needs to go consistently and repeatably. It feels like this gun was rushed into production before the bugs were worked out. We are your customers, Hatsan, not your beta testers! However, I have already developed a fondness for this gun and will work through this flaw.
What others should know: Hatsan USA says that they will make available a drop-in regulator for this gun in the near future. That's exciting! The bolt on my FlashPup is very hard to cock (ever load a small crossbow?) For the Hatsan FlashPup QE the price of high fpe is high air usage and a seriously heavy hammer spring. Because of this, care must be taken to fully cock each time, or a pellet will be loaded without the gun being cocked. If this happens, the cocking lever must be pulled all the way back into the locking slot and the magazine must be removed to prevent double-loading the breech. For pellets it likes JSB Match Diabolo Exact Jumbo RS 13.43 Grain pellets, but it LOVES H&N Baracuda Match 21.14 Grain in the 5.51mm head size. In summary, this is a good PCP rifle that is almost a great PCP rifle. If Hatsan can remedy the magazine issue soon I predict that they will have trouble keeping up with demand for the Flash QE and the Flashpup QE.

Where can I get a single shot tray for the .22 Hatsan Flashpup QE? I have looked on the HATSAN USA site but they didn't have any.
You may need to call or email Hatsan USA at this point. PA does not appear to have extras.
Is it harmful to the gun to leave it in the cocked position for an extended period of time ?
It shouldn't be too much of an issue, though I wouldn't recommend doing so for more than a few hours (the length of a walk in the woods hunting).
It says dry air only. Where do you get dry air? I'm a diver, and was hoping to use air from the scuba shop, but not sure if its dry enough,lol.
Yes, your scuba shop's compressor will produce dry air. If it's breathing quality, it will certainly be dry enough.
To fill your PCP gun:
