The Hatsan Gladius Long takes everything that?s great about the regular Gladius PCP air rifle, and adds an additional 3.5? of barrel length to the bullpup. The result is higher velocities and energy! On average you?ll get 100 fps more velocity resulting in up to 8 ft-lbs more energy.

The Hatsan Gladius PCP bullpup combines Hatsans reputation for reliability with a compact bullpup package. The Gladius bullpup features a synthetic stock with all the right options that really makes this bullpup standout including adjustable comb & butt pad, onboard storage for up to 3 extra magazines (which are included), a side lever for smooth cocking action, ambidextrous thumbhole stock, scope rail and three accessory rails on forend, the excellent Quattro trigger and a fully shrouded QuietEnergy barrel to keeps things extra quiet.

The Gladius also includes a brand new feature not seen before on a Hatsan PCP air rifle, Adjustable power settings. With a dial located next to the magazine, you can select one of 6 power settings to fine tune your rifles velocity and energy output based on your situation. Raise it to full power for hunting medium game, or dial it low for backyard blinking so you don't blow through your backstop (and to increase the amount of shots per fill).

First of all, I sighted this in for zero at 50 yards, on power settings six. I ran several pallets from several manufacturers with different weights. It seems to like the lighter pallets better. JSP 25 king 25.39gr. But Iā€™m still looking for a better grouping pallet. Not bad 1 inch groups at 50 yards.

The rifle seems a little too heavy to carry around, but makes a great bench gun.

Iā€™ve only had this a couple weeks so Iā€™m still playing around with it, of course a rifle always starts shooting better after the barrel has been seasoned
Pros The fact that it has four rotary magazines, that are real easy to load. Side loading lever Great looking gun case Lots of power Great customer service from Hatsan
ConsThe rifle is a little too heavy Canā€™t tell when youā€™re out of pellets unless youā€™re counting Not regulated It would have been nice if they had included a single pallet adapter.

So that this review is not just a repetition of everything else you can find on the web, I am going to try to cover what I have found that seems to be missing. I have lived with this gun so hopefully you'll find some of this useful.

Why would you want to buy a Gladius Long? The short answer is versatility, accuracy at a reasonable price. With the adjustable power levels, and the extensive range of pellets available in 22cal, you cover a tremendous range of energies and pellet speeds. On the high end, JSB Ultra Shocks, 25.4gr, I get 880fps, 44fpe which will compete with most 25cal guns, and you can dial it back to launch a 14gr as low as 435fps. You can even shoot alloy pellets at reasonable velocities. Basically, you have something that can marginally take down a coyote (depending on who you ask), yet do lightest plinking with the lightest pellets. In most cases, you can shoot any, quality pellet, and keep it under 900 fps, where you start to have to worry about lead fouling and launch even the heaviest ones fast enough and accurately. You can adjust most pellet weighs within a 850-900fps velocity range with a turn of the power knob, and it seems to shoot just about any quality pellet well and with a similar sight zero, at least at shorter distances before drag coefficients matter much.

The hammer spring can also be adjusted to fine tune for a specific pellet, as show in a You Tube video, ALMOST. In the video they guy cocks the hammer to do the adjustment. I tried this numerous times and turned and turned the screw without any apparent effect on the chrono. I noticed the hammer body rotating through the cocking slot and realized that the screw itself was not turning in the hammer. I decided to try again without cocking, just pulling the lever half way back. It worked like a charm, fractional rotation make measurable velocity changes.

The guns inherent accuracy seems to be .1 to .2 mRads with just about any unsorted JSBs or HN pellet, at 20 yards. That is near .1-inch radius from the aiming point. Off a tripod I am a little worse than off the sled, but it is rare that a dime wont completely cover the hole of 10 shot group at 20 yards. I use this gun a lot to dispatch pocket gophers trying to break into my wifes garden planters, and can reliably take out yellow jackets who are examining the holes in the target at that distance.

Shot strings are very consistent from 3000psi to 2000psi and drop slowly after that. You DO NOT want to buy a regulator on this gun! I made that mistake and found that I had virtually no improvement in velocity regulation and that I lost all the adjustability and most of the power that the gun is capable of. This is because of the fixed volume of the regulation chamber. Huma regulators are designed to shoot a specific pellet at a specific velocity and that is not what this gun is about. Since the performance without a regulator is so consistent, it was a complete waste of money.

The Bullpup design means I need about 3 inches, barrel to optics on the scope. Sighting in at 20 means it is zeroed again at 60 yards with JSB 18s at 890fps and not too much rise in between. A closer barrel to bore arrangement would be simpler to learn and require less attention to hold over but this is what you get with a bullpup. The adjustable cheek riser is nice, but in practice I have it nearly bottomed. Also I shoot lefty, and the mechanism bulges to the left and would mean I'd need more than the 3 inches if I were shooting right handed, so you will probably find the adjustment of limited value.

I really like the magazine arrangement. It is simple, fool-proof and almost indestructible. Most of all, it is fast and easy to load. Get a pinch of pellets, set the disk flat face down in the tin. Drop the pellets onto the back of it and agitate a little. With classic diabolo pellets, usually 7 to 9 of them with fall nose down into the holes due to the shape of the back face. Then knock off the excess, insert the missing one or 2, and just press them into the holes. I can load a magazine easily in less than 30 seconds. If I get something fancy, like an FX or a Daystate, I know I am going to be annoyed every time I reload, pissed when they break. Lastly, it comes with 4 of them total. It has holders for 3 built in, so you have 40 pellets on the gun and ready to go. If you don't know what you are going to find to shoot. You can load different pellets in different cassettes. Grab the one you need set the power dial and your good to go.

There is anti-double feed, but because the cassette has no moving parts, it is built into the cocking mechanism. It is less than foolproof, since partial cocking can advance cassette but not latch the hammer. Pro tip: If you mis-cock, unlatch the cassette retaining pin, and then re-cock it. Slide the bolt forward and re-latch the cassette. This will prevent the cassette from indexing allow you to get the gun properly cocked without a double feed. This also allows you to uncock without double feeding.

Being a PCP, you dont need a pellet gun scope. The scope rail with accept pretty much any scope, picatinny, weaver or dovetail. I am using a FFP mildot 4-14X that I highly recommend. The FFP means the holdover is the same on the reticle regardless of the mag. The 4X though a little high, is okay for rapid target acquisition, while the 14 is great for precise work which the gun is capable of. Point is, there is basically not a problem to put any optic you want on the gun, and that FFP scopes rule.

The gun comes with a strap and swivels, but they are not very useable. I replaced it with an STI 2 point sling, and standard 1.25-inch swivels. I moved the front swivel to the back of the lower rail so strap is not in the way of a tripod. I think Hatsan should do the same. I also put an extra set of swivel posts, one on the side, front rail and the other near the top of the butt sock so that it was easy to carry across the body and shouldered quickly. Very satisfied with the arrangement.

I had problems with several things on the gun. These were mostly due to poor manufacturing process. If you get one of these, I would recommend the following be done right away. First, unscrew the moderator cap and the shroud and apply some molly or Teflon grease to the thread. You will want to pull the barrel from time to time to clean this gun when accuracy drops. The length of the barrel, and the moderator, combined with the short breach makes most assembled cleaning methods suspect to impossible. On mine, I could not unscrew the shroud and had to send it to the factory and this is better found out before the warrantee is up. I have also seen other people have trouble with the moderator cap on Hatsan QEs.

Next, use the de-airing tool to drain the cylinder. Remove both the valve and regulator and use silicone or Teflon grease to coat the o-rings and the threads. Screw them back in but leave a small gap. Do not tighten them. The seal is radial so it does not care, and the air pressure will absolutely keep the threads form moving. This will ensure that you can repair a worn valve seal or replace a damaged valve. You can also disassemble it to remove moisture and crud that will inevitably build up in the cylinder. The lube will keep bi-metallic corrosion from seizing the threads. You can also use the gap to adjust the probe port angle to work with your inflation method.

The Gladius is an excellent, functional gun. It looks very tactical, but it is a work of cost engineering in a good way. Cost are so far as I can tell, kept to a minimum without sacrificing performance or reliability. They strictly follow the KISS rule (keep it simple stupid). It is a working gun, not a high tech, elaborate, polished work of art. Still today I do not see anything as versatile anywhere near the price, and other than a big bore, it pretty much covers anything I need to do. Then, throw into the mix the 4 cassettes, the fitted hard case, the tools, and the spare seals, and you have a serious deal. I did a lot of research going in, and being my first PCP, it has been a better choice than I expected. I do not see anything under 2x the price that I would consider even now, and once have the ability to shoot nearly any type well with a turn of a knob everything else seems limited.

This is my first PCP rifle and really like it. You get a lot of value for the money - it's accurate and I have no problem taking care of tree squirrels and rabbits with it. There is a ton of power. I never used to worry about over-penetration with my old airguns but do with this one because it is so strong. I'm shooting 18.13 grain JSB Match Diablo Heavy pellets and they work great - about a 1/2" at 30 feet and they are what I use for pest control. I did run mops through the barrel with WD40 on them to clean the barrel and got a ton of dirt/old oil out of the barrel. I would recommend doing that to others as well. By the way, the removable air cylinder is a nice feature.
ProsVery powerful and has a number of things you can adjust to your liking: The trigger, power, recoil pad position, length of pull and cheekpiece. The trigger out of the box was pretty good. I like the safety lever being in front of the trigger. It's very cool having a repeater vs. a springer when it comes to pests. The removable cylinder is cool because you can carry around a spare cylinder for a quick change vs. needing a tank or a pump.
ConsThe scope rail is odd - I wish it was a normal picatinny rail. I did install real picatinny rings, torqued them down and have not had a problem. It is not regulated so I bought a Huma regulator for the cylinder. It is very easy to install and people review it well but I don't have enough experience to report on that part yet.

got a Hatsan Gladius Bullpop Long .25 cal about 2 months ago since than I've put 800 rounds through it with the scope that came with the gun. It is powerful. At 40 yrds, the pellets would stack on top of another, its one hole all day on power 6 setting, but loud. Low setting is quiet but only level 3 and up is good. I used 3 and 5 most of the time. My best pellet is jsb 33 gr, follow by barracuda 31gr, and third is jsb 25gr. It likes heavy pellets. I like to shoot 27 rounds before refill but you could get another 9 rounds on power level 3. This gun is built like a tank. Everything on the gun worked like it should. The only improvement I think Hatsan should focus on is the trigger and weight. Other than that I'm happy.
Prospowerful, accurate, built tough, removable air cylinder (great if you don't like to carry big air tank along), spare magazines holder, parts is cheap, and the price is great for a bullpop
ConsHatsan please take off 2 lbs and make the trigger little bit lighter to pull.

Hatsan Gladius Long, a good product at a discount price
October 5, 2016
Hatsan builds a very good pcp rifle for the price. I can hold a 1/2 or better group at 30 yards without a rest. Average shots are 33 before I had to fill. Rails are handy for extras and 3/8 dovetail is true to size. Only gripe I have is that the barrel was coated with some sort of oil inside it. I had flyers for my first 18 rounds and then it hit me. Cleaned it with 30 cal bore brush and hoppe's #9, plenty of dry patches. Fixed all my initial issues. At 100 shots through it, I've had no additional problems. I'd rank it as a solid buy.
ProsVery accurate, power setting is a very useful feature and quiet
ConsLousy instructions, no parts break down, weight of rifle and hatsan scope rings suck

Almost perfect
May 10, 2016
I an truly impressed with this rifle. The fit and finish is excellent, function has been flawless. One hole groups at 30 yards, (The longest I have been able to shoot so far), can't wait for the weather to break. My gun is a 25 Cal. and it hits like a hammer. Hope they never find out how good this rifle is they'll be charging $1500.00 for it.
ProsPlenty of rails and room for mounting any scope and any other toys you want, and has storage for 3 magazines to be held VERY securely on the under side of the stock.
ConsOkay we can't get away with the fact that the Gladius has a weight problem, by the time you get a good scope and bipod mounted up you are looking at 12 pounds or better. I would take it out to a stand, but I would not recommend tip toeing though the squirrel woods all day. So if you want a shooter this gal will do it for you, if it's a sporting field piece you want, you can do better.

One Bad A bullpup.
April 6, 2016
Everything I expected from Hatsan. Fit and finish are excellent, not a single flaw that I can find. I've only been able to shoot at 20 yards so far but it is a one hole shooter. Magazines are stupid simple and work flawlessly.
ProsIf I had paid twice what I did I could not have expected more from this rifle, than what I got. It comes with a case that may not be the best case out there but not too bad. The sling is not for me but it would make a very nice patch for a shooting jacket. It comes with a degasser and a protective cap for the gas tube.
ConsThe only downside of the rifle is it's weight, though well balanced it is still heavy especially with a quality scope on it. A deal breaker, oh hell no, not a problem for shooting from a blind or stand, just would not want to carry it around all day.
