I think this airgun has a big potential. After I get my chrono and play with the power adjustment (Hamer spring) I might be looking at the HUMA regulator to get that power curb flatter. I have made 75 and 100 yards shots and was able to keep the groups bellow 2". I really want to see what will happen with bags to stabilize that baby (not that I am shaky but...)
The trigger needed a bit of adjustment to fit my test. For me, the adjustment was a bit finnicky on the second stage. I reduced the first stage weigh to really light and the second just a bit. Not having a trigger scale was more about how it feels than a set weigh. As I am mainly going to use the rifle for hunting, I didn't want an "air trigger". I have made an adjustable up and down but pad with my 3d printer and I love it.
What else to say about that gun? I think I just love it. I was looking at a Wildcat MKII compact and I do not have any regrets. Now I can buy a second one for my son and still have some money ;)

Very satisfied with airgun Depot which have better price compared to AOA.
After reading 100's and 100's of reviews and watching every video, I new a lot about this gun and pcp's in general .
Upon recieving it along with the rest of my order ( which by the way was speedy with tracking and delivered when promised) it was packed well and after inspecting I found No issues. Was also impressed buy its solid build and heft. I decided to be patient and do a good thorough once over and check al screws , o-rings and connections including cleaning the factory barrel, which was a wise idea I read from others. Pretty dirty barrel .......pic of dirty patches below.
As other have said, the air cylinder was charged to 200 BAR and ready to go. Pellets seem huge compared to my familiar .177 and look awesome ( JSB Kings 25.39g)
Mounted the bipod and scope (4x16x50 AOL) and set up target at 25 yards to zero. Needed some good tweeking at first , but after about 10 shots I had it doing well and hitting my one inch target (mostly). Did some finer tuning on the scope and had to do my first pump up ( cheap Chinese hand pump I bought online). So far the pump works great and no issues, as well it should.....only been used a few times.
Day 2 I did some more shooting with a better rest but not ideal. Even with a good cross wind and and being a new gun I managed to put a lot of pellet on pellet at 25 yards. Moved to 50 yards and it was shooting a hair higher which surprised me. Dialed it in at 50 yards and made a few scope adjustments and did another pump refill.
To my surprise , my first effort at a group of nine shots at 50 yards was under 1 inch center to center. I was impressed to say the least and can't wait to to shoot from a good solid bench. This was standing resting of the back of a truck sitting on a 5-gal pail.
As other reviews stated .......the sound of the pellet hitting the target IS louder than the gun itself and it sounds powerful!!! The no recoil thing with pcp's is different and pretty damn cool!!! I wouldn't hesitate to take head shots on any small game and feel confident with this gun even being new. This gun is a beast but again as others have said it shoulders well, and although heavy it is well balanced. I see this being my goto for lots of situations and my new hunting buddy........not to mention bragging rights and just the pure DCF........( Damn Cool Factor)!!!
People always ask about hand pumping and I'm sure one day I'll get an electric pump, but, with this gun and straight from the factory without any adjustments it takes about 70 pumps average (70 down strokes) to fill back up to 200 BAR after 18 shots. After 18 shots it is down to about 125 BAR and then I refill and takes about 5 minutes and even work up a little sweat.
Can't wait to see what this gun will achieve after a few thousand rounds and getting used to it. Love this thing already and looking forward to getting better with it.
Also looking to check it with a chrony and do more fine tuning, but for out of the box accuracy without a lot of effort, this gun is an Azzkicker!!!
Slammer from da U.P.
I wanted to see how far my gun could reach so I placed a 5 gallon bucket about a 100 yards away and by the 3rd shot I was getting about an inch and 1/2 group. In the pic below the target is a 6x6 at 30 yards and 27 rounds, I was impressed.
I hope you enjoy the pics...
I love the action and balance.
Only complaint my bipod didn't come. With the weaver mounts,just the barrel and AR mount. Call customer service was told a new mount would be sent.?..Nothing yet...three weeks
My biggest problem - after about 30 shots something broke in the gun and I could no longer pull the charging lever back all the way. A little piece of metal that kind of looks like a sear broke off internally and I think this is causing the problem. Luckily, I only had received the gun a week before and it was no issue to return it to AirgunDepot with a prepaid FedEx shipping label that they emailed to me. I sent it back and am just waiting for a new replacement gun to arrive.
The rifle is fairly well finished, and works smoothly, and I am sure it will get better with time and more pellets (only about 500 shot so far).
My fifth gun from AGD, and they are always efficient and keep customers happy!
After adding 4-16x50 scope, bipod and laser, gun weighs in at about 12+ lbs. HEAVY, but not when shouldered! Balances well and the side cocking lever makes for fast follow up shots. Compared to a custom Benjamin Marauder pistol, this weighs twice as much.
This is my first PCP but it will not be the last. I opted to pay the extra $100 and got the Walnut stock one in the .25 cal. I am still setting the scope and this being my first gun where I am using the scope it is taking some getting use to. I am not getting them to a close grouping as yet but that is because I am still lining up the scope so I am aiming a bit to the left at the moment. Plus I have only began shooting it yesterday. Hit 7 out of the last 9 on the 2" and 2.5" target.
The gun is very quiet, much quieter than the gas piston crank guns I have had. On my first cylinder I have shoot over 40 shots and it hasn't seemed to fade in power. Plan to refill tomorrow and do a full count. The gun has hardly any kick back and I love the side lever, actually can't wait to try a semi-automatic, I would love to see this gun in a bigger caliber like .357 which is the ideal size that I want.
Hatsan has really out done themselves with this gun.
Bought a cheap scope just to get accustom to scopes plan to buy a good one real soon!
opinion, which of the 2 Hatsan 25 cal or the Evanix Rex 357, do you believe have the most punch?
I will inform Airgun, of my test results, and according to the results of the feedback and my test results, I will be purchasing one more of
determined winner, or I may even purchase the Sam Yang 357, and give my opinion on which of the three is the best,
at which time, I will be purchasing the winner of the 3 guns.
and the fill port on the cocking lever side would tear up the fill probe -o- rings but the fill port opposite side worked perfectly, So the rifle can be damaged if not handled properly.
So you probably wonder why I gave it 5 stars?
Well even with all that had to be done to start shooting this rifle ,it was drop dead accurate.( even after scope shimming both scope rings ).
Also A.G. Depot has a good return policy and good support, So as of this writing I am awaiting a return shipping label as to exchange this.
It is a drag when something like this happens but it looks like fedex played soccer with my shipping box and it shows and it affected the gun in a big way.
It is starting to get cold here in MD. and I would not have returned this but it was expensive for me ( disabled fixed income) and I didn't want any problems to pop up down the road after the return period ended.
So I hope the weather is warm when the replacement arrives so I can take it out in the yard to zero it in.
I don't mind the wait ,I do mind the shippers poor care of the packages they are charged with delivering, tsk, tsk., tsk.,
And I still compare all guns to the USA made Benjamin Marauder. I wonder how a gun made in the USA can be sold for so much less than any of these foreign made guns. Especially with the strength of the dollar.
