this rifle needs to be cocked to install or remove the rotary mag. If you cock and remove the mag. how do you relive the pressure without dry firing? Can you cock the rifle and install a cleaning pellet in the breach without the rotary mag? That would solve the issue.
I just use the magazine to load a pellet then pull the cocking lever back ,which leaves the pellet in the chamber, remove the Magazine, close the breach and shoot.
It would be very nice if Hatsan added a single shot tray this would make it so much easier to travel and store rifle safely.
You can load a pellet by hand fairly easy and fire it. I wouldn't recommend firing a cleaning pellet, it's basically a dry fire because they are so light.
I own 5 Hatsan's all break barrels and most in .25 cal. Which I noticed is not offered in the gun? Is it because people do not know how to use mil dotted scopes? Also all of my Hatsan barrels, the bore diameter for particular caliber are always slightly to large and ironically limit my usage to firm fitting pellets being the H@N FTT pellets (which are identical to Hatsan's own pellets. The above mentioned pellets actually fit firm and both the head and rear part of the pellets engage the rifleing. Most other pellets fit loose and the slightly wider rear skirts are all that make contact with the rifling. Therefore pellet wobble occurs. Does more then the above named pellet brands fit properly in this gun? Or am I stuck with the Hatsan branded or HN FTT pellets to get a nice firm pellet fit? Like all my other Vortex air piston or mechanical spring piston Hatsans.
The Proxima is offered in .25. I have four Hatsans all in .177. I've only had one gun in .25 and sold it. The only reason I have any .22 is it's the only caliber I could get the gun in or it's a dual cal. I only shoot targets and I prefer .177. I can use mildots just less of them.
For me, i own all Hatsans also, .22 & .25, vortex and spring. My 150 tuned spring and Vortex 135 do well w/ H&N baracuda 5.52, also the AA16g & 18g over the JSB 16g & 18g. My .25cal's are 155 vortex and a 135 vortex likes AA 25g over JSB also. But hands down PolyMags are surgical accurate in all 4 of my rifles, not good on a 25lb raccoon or possum like a AA 25g but for stacking pellets on top of each other at 25yrds. PolyMag! in both calibers. Ive never measured the heads on any of them, i have a large selection of pellets. All my Hatsans are reasonably pellet friendly, My 155 will group pieces of gravel. But my best results out to 97yrds are AA's out to 50 yrds, PolyMags. They offer 2 different results. I WANT ONE OF THESE REPEATERS BAD.
please pyramydair convince hatsan to make this rifle with synthetic stock
Best to send that request to Hatsan as well. If they have enough demand, I am sure they'd look into it.
