Found the gun to be accurate and did live up to the 550 fps rating Hatsan gave it.The vortex ram is a great feature on the gun giving it a smooth cocking and firing action.The other great feature of the vortex ram is it can be recharged with an AT44 filling probe which I did do to get max power from the gun.
However the accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. At 35 yds, with a quality scope, the most I have been
able to get is 3" groups, on a good day.
As my uncle would say, this gun is perhaps the ultimate airgun. Self sufficient, rugged, adjustable, powerful, etc. You name it, it's here.
When I got this rifle, I cleaned the barrel, threw about 25 shots through it and was satisfied that it worked. A week later I was able to get out the chrony and toss another 25 though it and was surprised at the results. In a 25 shot string I had an avg of 605.5 fps with a High of 634 and a Low of 596 (using a 44.75 JSB Exact Diabolo). That's an avg of 36.44 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.
Ok, so my initial thoughts: The gun is solid, well made and will trek through the woods with no problems, thanks to the rugged synthetic stock and standard sling swivels (with sling!)
It does take some effort to cock. Plinking through a tin of 150 in the back yard is going to be a test! The gun itself is quite hefty too.
I love the adjustable fixed sights and the heavy duty scope rail. Thanks for giving us both!
Adjustable butt plate is perfect and I like the adjustable cheek. I'd still love to see Hatsan use the adj cheek on the Mod 87 series more often.
The trigger was fine right out of the box! I'm sure I'll fiddle with it at some point but it shoots well as is.
I know that a lot of people don't like automatic safety's but I'm glad that Hatsan provided this gun with one. With this kind of power, I'd rather be safe than sorry.
The guns got some power, folks.
