Fantastic entry level pcp rifle
September 11, 2015
After reading the "competition" report that Airgun Depot featured and doing as much additional research as possible I decided I probably couldn't go wrong with this rifle. I was 100% correct. First, if you are a total newbie to PCP be aware that the manual, like most from foreign manufacturers, is terrible. Use YouTube, reviews, blogs, etc., to learn what you want to know about this rifle. Second, be aware that it is not indicated anywhere in any descriptions or specs on any site that I found but you absolutely have to go into accessories and locate an appropriate adapter to connect your air source to the air fill stem supplied with the rifle. I bought the Air Venturi G6 pump to charge this bad boy and realized after I ordered that neither the gun nor the pump came with the coupling. SO don't miss that little detail. So what about the rifle? Felt a bit front heavy compared to the break barrel I normally shoot, but I expected that. Ignore the goof-balls who complain about the synthetic stock. The stock is smooth and well finished and fits the rifle perfectly. Why does anyone order a rifle with a synthetic stock and then complain that they would prefer wood? Go drop $1600 on a Daystate if you just have to have wood. This is a perfectly serviceable stock and the adjustable butt plate is a great feature. I'm 6' and had to adjust the plate down quite a bit but the end result is that the rifle shoulders smoothly and seats with no effort. I added a bi-pod and the Hawke 4-12x50 scope and started shooting. The trigger is just plain great. First stage is light with a very positive stop and the release is butter smooth and consistent. I've only been able to shoot it at 18 yards (inside a warehouse) so far but with Jumbo Exacts and and Jumbo Heavies I am consistently getting virtually one hole groups. And that is with a new rifle that has not had any significant break-in time. Not that I don't get the occasional what-did-I-just-do flyers, but if you hold on target the pellet will go where you pointed it. Almost too easy at this short range. I am real anxious to get it out to a range where I can push it out to 50-75 yards. Did I mention that it hits like a hammer. No lack of power for shooters with pest problems. And by far the quietest gun I've encountered. Even with a padded trap the sound of the pellet hitting the trap is way louder than the report from the rifle. What about charging this weapon? Well, no one is kidding when they say that the last few pumps to get back to the max 3000 lb fill takes a bit of strength. But I have never taken more than 5 minutes to get up from about 1600 to that 3000 lb max and only the last few hundred pounds are really challenging with the hand pump. She shoots so smooth and consistent in the lower pressure range (2500 down to about 1800) that if you don't mind hooking up the pump a bit more often you can just charge up to about 2500. I believe even a relatively small shooter could achieve that without much real effort and if you're on a slightly tight budget the hand pump will get you in the game without the hassle of having to run to the local dive shop or the expense of a tank and adapter. Unlike some of the other reviews I read, I have had no issues at all with the rotary magazines. They pop in easily and so far they function flawlessly. I added index marks on mine so that if I lose track I can determine how many pellets I have remaining. Also makes it possible to test a lot of pellets with 5 shot cards by making a second index mark and loading a mixed magazine. Bottom line; at this price point I don't think you can possibly get a better rifle. Accuracy is spot on, the machining is clean and precise and it is just an all around great rifle for the bucks. (almost forgot; clean it as soon as you get it. The barrel was filthy on mine. A dozen pulls through with a bore snake and she was sweet; but definitely comes dirty)
Pros:Nicely finished. Seems sturdy and well made. Accurate, as long as you are and you load the right pellets. Not even slightly hold sensitive; use any hold you are comfortable with and the rifle will get the job done. The trigger is a delight to use and highly adjustable.
Cons:For a novice the manual provides more questions than answers. Use on-line chat or phone calls or whatever if you encounter problems or have questions. The manual will only provide the broadest and generally incomplete information.

OMG...I am in love
June 22, 2015
Recently I bought the Benji Marauder and thought I had purchased the best PCP I could find. Quiet, smooth etc. Then I bought this Hatsan AT44-10 QE....Boy Howdy was I wrong! 5 shots to get on the bulls eye and then I thought something went wrong...no more holes were appearing in the target? THEY WERE ALL GOING IN THE SAME HOLE!!! This gun is SO QUIET it make the Marauder sound a bit loud. Lighter than the Benji and OMG is this thing accurate! Only thing I do not like is the synthetic stock. If this was offered in a nice wooden stock they could not keep ahead of the orders.
