Versatility at a budget-friendly price! Hatsan has set itself apart from most other airgun manufacturers, as they report their max velocities with lead pellets instead of super-lightweight alloy pellets. Since most shooters know that lead pellets deliver the greatest accuracy and are much more economical than alloy pellets, it stands to reason that lead pellets will be the ammo of choice when shooting your Hatsan 25 SuperTact.

Good gun but not my favorite

Functionally, this pistol is quite impressive and any limitations in accuracy seem to always be a case of user error. With the artillery hold, it is a successful little silhouette gun and packs quite a punch. The screw on barrel extender makes cocking the gun reasonable, but not easy. When locking the barrel back straight, my gun tends to require a significant amount of force before it locks. I'm not a big fan of the ergonomics. Even fully extended, the pull is not long enough for my 6'2" frame. There is only a small amount of plastic frame to rest on your left hand, so being able to achieve a nice balanced position is difficult. The trigger is nicely adjustable, but too heavy in my opinion. The fiber optic sights are great. While I had seen the photos and knew it was the case, it didn't really sink in until I held the gun, so I think it is worth mentioning... this thing can't really be a pistol. When you pull off the butt stock it is the weirdest, longest, heaviest "pistol" I've ever held.
I really wanted to like this but...

The supertact vortex suffers from the same problem as the supercharger pistol: it refuses to allow a scope to remain in one place for more than 20 shots. If all you want is a ten yard plinker with open sights, then the supertact is good. But I wanted something along the lines of a bullpup that could take out a ground squirrel at 25 to 30 yards. For that I need a scope or red dot. If I can ever find a way to securely mount a scope, I will revise my rating. The gun is capable of very accurate shooting, just not for more than twenty shots.
Pros:Accurate when scope hasn't slid back. Vortex is easier to cock than the spring version. Nice trigger. Quiet. Very smooth shooter.
Cons:Just like its brother, the mod 25 supercharger, the insane recoil will not allow a scope or red dot to be mounted for more than 20 shots without sliding back on the rail. A simple hole for scope stop screw or pin would have solved the problem. This single issue has ruined what otherwise would be a great air gun. I don't know what Hatsan was thinking when they built this thing.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

WOW!! This is a great gun..Honestly I never dreamed it would be this accurate and shoot at the claimed velocity (690-712 fps). I have about 400 pellets through it at this point and it is just amazing. I adjusted the trigger as light as I could get it. It breaks at about just less than 4 lbs, but it is smooth and crisp. I put a UTG 4 X 32 rifle scope and mounted that on a picatinny rail adapter 11mm To 20mm Scope Mount. I shot about 8 different brands (JSB, RWS, Benjamin, Crosman etc.) and styles (HP. Wad cutter, pointed, round nose) of .177 pellets. The clear winner, Crosman Premier HP 7.9 gr. At 15 yards I can literally, on a shooting stand, put one pellet after the other through the same hole. I have never came across, a pellet pistol with only a 9” barrel have accuracy like this. Shooting free hand, no support, from 30 yards, I was consistently shooting 12 gage shotgun shells. Also from that distance the pellet was penetrating right through both sides of the shell. To sum that up, bench resting I was shooting groups no larger than a nickel at 30 yards.I also ordered the left handed grips, Yes Hasan does make grips for us left handers, but I only used one grip pannel to make the gun ambidextrous. Also this is pretty easy to cock in my opinion. I could shoot it all day..and I have. The aluminum muzzle break is a nice feature and it makes the cocking effort even easier.
Pros:The accuracy, the velocity and the overall construction. I like how compct it is yet it is accuarate as any rifle. This is my 5th Hasan pellet gun. Also AGD had bar far the best price and not to mention the fastest shipping. I used to do quite of bit of business with the other airgun company but no more. AGD beat them in price and shipping every time.
