Sometimes things are just made because they can be made. Add to that list the world's first .30 caliber break-barrel, part of the Carnivore series, the new caliber added to Hatsan?s premier break barrel Model 135. The Mod 135?s include everything that makes Hatsan break barrel?s special, including their Vortex gas piston, Turkish Walnut stock with adjustable Monte Carlo comb, fiber optic open sights, their highly regarded QuietEnergy barrels, and their equally acclaimed Quattro Trigger.

A handsome gun no matter what caliber you prefer, though I dare you to resist owning the world's first big bore break barrel. We were able to obtain 30 ft lbs of energy using the .30 caliber beast. And you shouldn?t have to worry about it chewing up scopes as long as you have a decent air gun rated scope on top. We were surprised that the double recoil was much less than other high power magnum power break barrels!

I've used for years to protect my livestock. Good gun. After a few years it quite shooting. No place to be found to do repairs.

I'd give it a five. Loved the gun had it for years. Unfortunately it's stopped shooting. It's out of warranty. Can't get any information bout how to get it fixed.

Great air rifle - but piston failed Bought the 135 EQ .30 cal about 3 years ago. Loved it. But a month ago - the nitro piston failed with less than 500 pellets through it. Out of warranty, I sent it to Hatsan USA. Got a quick response. They said that the most common reason a nitro piston fails is because if you store it muzzle up - like in a gun rack - piston cup oil will leak down the piston rod and soften or weaken the piston bladder - causing it to fail. I had never heard of that before. So be aware. Store it on its side or the other end up.

Great air rifle - lots of power

Make it a springer - other than that - a great airgun

This is one amazing hard hitting air rifle. I installed the UTG 4-16X44 30mm Scope, AO, 36-color Mil-dot on the gun. Then tested a lot of different pellet brands and gr weights to finally settle with the most deadly accurate pellet out to 80 yrds. That pellet is the Exact King Heavy Diabolo 33.95 gr. 42fpe. After shooting about 50 pellets through the new gun "I call the break in period" I then cleaned the barrel very well to dislodge any lead deposites to then truly start to site the gun in. I placed my gun in a rifle lock to ensure no movment. At 25 yards / 5 shot test cover all 5 with a dime: At 35 yards / 5 shot test cover all 5 with a nickle: At 35 yards / 5 shot test cover with quarter and so on....At 80 yards which I stopped at because after that I do not beleive I would shoot anything past that I noted my grouping was still very impressive with an average 2" x 2" pattern. Every gun is different keep the barrel clean and try lots of different pellets. Have Fun & Happy Shooting!

Again, it’s a heavy cocking mechanism and a heavy gun but well worth it.

With a beautiful figured walnut stock and the weight and feel of a real rifle, this thing is impressive. Yes, it’s a heavy cocking mechanism but once you pull the light, crisp trigger and see the power it has, you’ll forget all about that. Just put more behind your target than you think there should be or you may find a hole in something you didn’t mean to put a hole in. It’s not, in any stretch of the imagination, a first time pellet rifle for your kid. This is more like, I’m tired of .177 and want to quietly lay down some heat in the back yard. If you’re a healthy, strong person, I would highly recommend this pellet rifle.

This is unapologetically powerful and I wouldn’t change a thing.

This GORGEOUS rifle is both beautiful and powerful. This is the kind of rifle you pass down to the family. I don't see why this wouldn't stay in the family for generations and at $300 bucks it's well worth it.

I'm writing about the MOD 135 Vortex QE in .22 caliber. First of all, this gun is GORGEOUS. The walnut is striking to look at and if any of you are guitar or bass players, you'll appreciate the feel and look of a good piece of walnut in your hands. Everything is perfect on this gun. It's a precision piece of equipment. Personally, I LOVE the open sights it comes with. I've never been a scope kind of guy because I don't shoot long distances and they are just a pain. The open sights that Hatsan makes are my favorite. They have fiber optic, easy to see markers, and a dial for both windage and elevation which are very precise and also nice to look at. If you are a hunter, then the .22 is for you. This rifle is precise, and POWERFUL. I could easily see you taking down a small to medium size animal quickly and with dignity. The weight for a rifle like this feels just right. The VORTEX piston is crazy strong. Cocking takes muscle but easy to load.

Too powerful for me as a plinker. This is a hunter's rifle. If you want a backyard plinker, look elsewhere. If you plan to go hunting, this is it !!!

By RichardOctober 16, 2020

It's 4 ft long and weighs just under 10 pounds. You'll want a STURDY carrying case. Probably not appropriate for young boys or girls to use.

Of course, I agree with most of the comments about power, build, weight, etc. At first effort, the cocking IS more difficult than EXPECTED. But with experience, it becomes easier. The recoil--while not at all painful or intolerable, or even an issue--is more than expected at first. More than any 22 LR. I'll emphasize that this gun weighs as much as a Garrand, M1 battle rifle. And more than many high powered hunting rifles. So, with the cocking process and its weight, this is not the most convenient gun to CARRY in the field for repeated use. But it IS very powerful for what it is. And, all thing considered, is worth the efforts involved in using it for hunting. It's also very fairly priced for what it is. Only time and use will reveal how durable it is. So far, I'm a very happy buyer/user.

Larger sling swivels. Include a sling which is appropriate for this gun.

In order to hunt alligators, game animals, furbearers, squirrels, and non-migratory game birds (except Eastern Turkey) here in Texas, air/arrow guns need to be of a "Pre-charged pneumatic: an air gun or arrow gun for which the propellant is supplied or introduced by means of a source that is physically separate from the air gun or arrow gun." See for more info.

Easy and quick reload.

Big bore model is not considered a "lawful means" here in Texas for: alligators, bighorn sheep, javelina, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn, and turkey (except eastern turkey) etc.

By IanUSAMay 2, 2020 Verified Purchase

This is a gorgeous gun and as my only big bore airgun it leaves me wanting very little aside from more ammo to shoot. While it may be a bear to handle during extended shooting, its reaffirming weight does a great deal to combat the recoil and uneasiness of ones hands after a few dozen shots. I would never recommend it to someone unable to manage the heft and cocking effort, but for those who can and are looking for a step up from smaller calibers or simply addition stopping power for larger small game at the sub 30-40 yard range it cannot be beat in my opinion.

Fantastic affordable stopping power with beautiful Turkish wood

Unwieldy for the less fit among us(let's face it big caliber+big gun=really heavy gun)

By ChrisUSAApril 23, 2020 Verified Purchase

Buy it, you won't regret.

Very powerful. The 30cal will go through a 2x4

It's a bit heavy and the 30 is pretty hard to break barrel load but it's worth the effort.

By MattApril 6, 2020 Verified Purchase

This .22 is great to shoot. Sturdy, beautiful furniture is surprisingly high quality (though less red than it looks online) and despite the weight is very comfortable to use. Takes some strength to cock, but it's manageable.

Beautiful furniture Comfortable ergonomics Excellent accuracy Excellent power Adjustable trigger and comb Doesn't include a garbage-tier scope, you can choose your own

Heavy Hard to cock

asked Josh from USA

Other than looks, what is the difference between Mod 135 and Mod 135s?

asked noble from USA

There is no model 135s. There is 130S . The powerplants look to be pretty much the same. The 130S has a synthetic stock. The 135 an adjustable wooden stock.

Mark from USA

It’s this Hatsan Mod 135 Vortex QE good too hunter Turkey?

asked Toufik from Canada

If it can kill a racoon I think If you get a head shot your Chances will be likely

Nick from USA

I'm curious if anyone can tell me. I understand that the 30cal is a beast but is the 30 really better than the 22 or 25? Is the 30 as accurate as the 22 or 25. I'm asking because I'm very interested in the 30cal but also wonder why it's on sale and not the other calibers. CURIOUS

asked Dana from USA

its mutch bigger than a 22 but a 25 is smaller also look at this chart

Nick from USA

What kind of FPS am i looking at using a 20 grain H&N Field target trophy pellet 750 is a little slow using a 23 grain H&N Hornet in .25 cal.

asked Edward Yancey Jr

What would you say the effective range of this gun is against medium game? Also can this gun take out a coyote? I am planning on getting an air gun for pest control and possibly using to hunt medium game on a budget. I am planning on getting it chambered in 30 cal if I get this model.

asked Cayden Douglass

I can buy in india

asked Ankush salve

Would this work well for raccoon ? I have quite a few that try to get in my chicken coop at night and .22 lr subsonic only has had mixed results at dispatching the threat. I don't want to use high velocity .22 out of respect for my neighbors but thought maybe a .30 cal pellet might be more effective. Thoughts ?

asked jeremiah from USA

Are you able to go deer hunting with this???

asked Hunter Laubenstein

in most states u need a .30 pcp but check your regulations

Nick from USA

What is the muzzle volisity of this rifle

asked William

I am seriously thinking about this rifle. I've found some pellets That more resemble a .45, .50 cal in design. About 80 and 100 Grain. Would these still work in this style rifle? They are Sold in lots of 100 on eBay as .30/.308 cal. I'm no ballistics Expert though I do have an extensive firearms background, But isn't it false to classify a .30 and a .308 as the same Size pellet/slug?

asked Danny croft

Will the 0.25 drop a coyote at 50 yards?

asked Dale Baker

What's the largest game you could hunt with the .30 cal of this? small deer, maybe? thank you

asked Ash

Can it take out a coyote?

asked Jonathan from USA

Hey guys thanks in advance for helping a newbie out. I am interested in the .25 cal. I know it will fit my hunting and pest control needs. 1. how adjustable is the trigger - does anyone know what the lowest poundage I can set? 2. Pest control will be at a farm and the farmer who is currently my friend and I want to keep it that way, had dairy cows, so I am hoping that the report will be subtle. If not, is there after market systems that might be able to help quiet this big boy down? Not concerned about the sound of the pellet hitting the target but the report of the gun it self. 3. what kind of bipod will work well with this gun? Again, thanks for the help.

asked Dean Forrest

Would you recommend this for turkey hunting and if so in what caliber?

asked Bruce

I couldn’t find a complete list of what all comes in the box. What all comes in the box? Sling?

asked Mark from USA

What is the length of pull in inches ( distance from trigger to shoulder )?

asked David

After reading the comments about this rifle I have to seriously ask Are airgunners wimps? I have rifles that weigh twice as much, granted, they are in serious calibers, such as .338 Lapua and .50 BMG among others,but a rifle under ten pounds is no big deal, and fifty pounds COCKING weight, well Id say its time to start doing some push ups. this rifle is in the same weight range as the M1 Garand and the M14 are, unloaded. Someone Please let me know that these complainers are the exception, and not the rule!

asked Scott

so it it just like a pump rifle, or do you have to fill it with gas?

asked jeff

will this shoot a raccoon out of a tree with a head shot??

asked mike atkins

Well this 30 caliber air rifle take down a deer if need be?

asked John

How many pounds is required to cock?

asked Dillon

Whats the biggest thing it can kill

asked Joseph from USA

asked Perry from USA

What Scope would you use on this rifle?

asked Allen Gaskill

how often to you have to replace the gas piston in this gun

asked Perry Bierman

Can an ex-felon hunt with this gun legally?

asked Rick Walker

What scope do you recommend for this rifle? I understand they're pretty hard on optics.

asked Ed Sheppard

Does anyone know if the .30 will go through a pine 2x4?

asked Ty from USA

Does anyone know if the .30 will go all the way through a pine 2x4

asked Ty from USA

Will a .30 cal go through a 2x4 pine board?

asked Ty from USA

Will the .30 cal go through a 2x4 pine board

asked Ty from USA

Interested in .30 cal but I'm a lefty. Any thoughts on how this would work out. See a similar gun w/ different stock but only up to .25. What is the practical difference between .25 and .30? Thanks, Bob
