The AT44W Long QE has a longer barrel than the standard AT44 (3.6? longer barrel) that results in 100 fps faster velocity and higher muzzle energy. The AT44 Long also has a larger Air Cylinder resulting in more shots per fill. So as long as you don't mind the extra length and weight, what?s not to love in the AT44 Long? It features Hatsans Quiet Energy fully shrouded barrel with an integrated sound moderator. This really gets the job done and is one of the best sound moderators on the market. All Hatsans also include their Quattro Trigger. it's a two stage trigger that really punches below its class considering the cost of the AT44. The Hatsan AT44W Long QE is a PCP that really brings accuracy and power to hunting situations, or just for those that really want to push their target shooting yards out with a quality European made Air Rifle.

The extra barrel length makes a BIG difference. It is longer, heavier, and the air reservoir is bigger too. Gets more shots, higher velocities, is more accurate and less pellet picky. Oh both of mine is are in .25 cal. This is the quietest of my 5 .25 cal rifles. It is as accurate as the Benjamin and gets from 25-50 fps more out of any pellet. That is a big help on those long range shots. Mine prefers JSB 25.39 gr pellets. The heavier pellet packs more fpe, but just isn't as accurate. H&N FTT come in second best. Enough power for hogs (head shots at 25 yards) , coyotes out to 30 yards and have hit ground squirrels in the noggins at 70 yards. These can be adjusted up in power but you will get far fewer shots then.
I love the side lever cocking. It is much better than the heavy cocking on the BT65. While the stock is not as adjustable as on the BT65, the ease of side lever cocking and since the stock fits me, makes this a favorite out of over 12 air rifles. Get a good scope. I am using a BSA Sweet 17. While not really an airgun scope, PCP guns do not destroy scopes like spring powered guns do. Having a 3-12X40 AO mil dot makes this a very good hunting rifle for mice to hogs.
