Serious, Solid, Impact. ┬аIt's more than a just a catchphrase for the Hatsan MOD 130S QE Breakbarrel. ┬аWhile other breakbarrel airguns suggest use as a small game hunters, you feel confident the MOD 130S is more than capable for pest elimination and small game hunting with it huge .30 cal ammo. Built for the trail, each 130S features an all-weather stock with integrated swivel sling mounts. ┬аThe stock includes an adjustable comb to ensure you get your ideal cheek relief with each shot. ┬аAlthough a long gun, the 130S is easy to control with checkering on the grip, and a rubberized buttpad with inserts for achieving a customized length of pull. ┬а To begin slinging serious lead, break the barrel and load up your .30 caliber round. Return the barrel to firing position and take aim with the easy to read fiber-optic open sights. ┬аIf you don't prefer open sights, mount a scope to the ┬а Each 130S features a 2-stage Quattro trigger that can be set to your preferred pull. ┬аOnce you pull the trigger your .30 cal will be hitting speeds as high as 590 FPS to dump an authoritative 34 ft-lbs of energy into your target. Each 130S features an 11mm Dovetail/Picatinny combination rail for the most versatility in your optics choices. Loaded with innovative breakbarrel features, the rifle includes Hatsan's Quiet Energy integrated suppressor to reduce the sound of its report and features a Shock Absorber System (SaS) to reduce the recoil and reduce stress on the scope.

What an airgun! This will blast through the cardboard target and then through the 5/8 to 3/4 pine board. The vortex pellets are great, but the skirts are really big and too thick to mash them in flush with your fingers like a .177 or even some dead soft .22 pellets. Answer: I make a sizer from a 3/4" 2 inch bolt. Drill out to closest size without getting too large and lap this bolt with a dowel and wet and dry just till pellet fits in barrel perfectly, meaning it stops at the rifling. I do this with some of my favorite airguns and they all benefit. It may reduce the power, but I don't think so, it makes the pellets all fit the same, perfectly and flush with the metal of the breech, not just a bit lower than the breach seal. Seems Gamo likes that pressure build up for the initial snap.

Wow the power of .30 caliber. You know which way to put the pellet in, that's for sure. Dieseling still, easier to cock, I used two hands at first. Cleaned barrel with a dowel and paper towel piece for dozens, still oil and still diesels. When it does not diesel it is quieter. It's about as loud as any other springer, certainly not any louder. Trigger is perfect out of the box. A bit of a travel, then a tiny bit more of resistance, then the gun fires so that to me is great, it's repeatable. Mine has a scope rail with 20mm picatinny rail, combo11 mm dovetail rail. It is low to the breech and this creates a change where your cheek goes when your shoot. i don't intend to use this with a scope. I am planning to whittle with a belt sander, the cheekpiece to fit me. With a scope you may need the height of this factory cheekpiece as it is.

The adjustable cheekpiece and way too much oil in the chamber when new.

This is a awesome rifle, biggest and most powerful break barrel in the world, it’s extremely heavy build with very large internal parts. The stock is very comfortable and the polymer is thick, comes with stock adjustment key and trigger Allen wrench, cocking force is a lot at 60lbs, young, elderly people and women will also have a hard time to cock i and use it in general because of the size and weight. The recoil is heavy but fun, it feels like a real rifle. It’s expensive to shoot compared to a .22cal. You going to want a shock absorber scope mount otherwise you will risk breaking your scope. I broke a optima 3x9x40 so now I just run iron sights, they are very good and accurate, keep the rifle lighter and fit the range of this rifle at up to 30 yards with perfect flat trajectory, further than that you will get some pellet drop. The included sling mounts are great, I use a hatsan sling it fits perfect and is very comfortable.

Very powerful and well balanced, great quality polymer stock and sights, very quiet for its size, smooth and easy to adjust trigger, adjustable stock, sling mounts, soft butt pad.

You will need a shock absorber scope mount or it will break your scope. Pellets are not cheap.

This is a very well made rifle and no doubt will outlast me. The round nose pellets i am using do not get much penetration on the old catalogs I stuff my target with. I am sure some of the funny looking pointy pellets will do much better. I am sure these round nose pellets transfer a great deal of energy to the target.

This rifle has around the same weight and balance of the M14 I carried in basic training in the army. It looks good and I do like the pistol grip stock. The sights are not the best by far but very usable at least until I can get a set of true iron sights put on it. I have put around 25 monster size pellets down range with it and am impressed with group size. 10 clicks to the left and the zero stays right there. I am 72 years old and crippled up so I doubt i could ever get out and hunt with this beast but I do wish I had had it when I was 50 years younger. It really is very hard to cock, just like every review says. I can do it so anyone can who wants to.

There was a problem with cocking after four shots where it became almost impossible to move the barrel. Air gun depot said i should return it but i opted to get it repaired at a gunsmith a couple towns over. No idea what the problem was though, when i picked it up the person on the counter said he had no idea what was done to it. It worked fine so they can keep their secrets. Being old weak and crippled i have to put the rifle on the floor and half stand with both hands on barrel to cock it. I am sure this is not safe but is no doubt very humorous to observe. It gets the job done though.

If this country goes to hell, this gun is going with me to put food on the table.

This gun packs a serious punch. Preppers would have no trouble bringing this gun into their arsenal. I'm shooting the H&N Vortex Strike @ 48.50 grains with devastating results. This rifle is serious on squirrels, the slam is way more than you need. Rabbits, coyotes, even deer in a life or death situation (headshot). I have placed a 3x9x50 Bushnell on mine, just a lot easier on the eyes. Very well built, worth every penny.

It's surprising how hard it is to cock the first time and a noticeable heft to it. All that being said, you get used to it quickly and it doesn't bother you. I don't think cocking is getting easier, I think the shooter is getting stronger.

By RUSAJanuary 16, 2021 Verified Purchase

Plenty of punch, for a springer, decent price, well constructed. It's also surprisingly quiet.

Not very accurate past 50 yards or so. Also it's pretty heavy and might be hard to cock for smaller shooters. Limited ammo options.

By JoeUSADecember 28, 2020

Did a test shot on a button buck I harvested with my hunting rifle . So I tried the hatasan 135 .30 Diablo 54 grain pellet. Head shot between eyes saw .30 cal hole through stuck pencil inside It was inside brain cavity. So lead me to believe head shot is the way to go when shtf need meat to live and no bullets available. The hide neck area was to thick and tough acted like bullet proof vest pellet dropped down

Nice wooden stock. Heavy but you feel the power this rifle can have.

Cocking it is a bit tiresome shot after shot you get worn out.

By JeffreyUSADecember 21, 2020 Verified Purchase

Looking forward to this gun being broken in. After the first 100 or so shots I hear it gets easier to break. ... This is a serious air gun rifle. Seems well made. It is heavy and packs a wallop. I do recommend it.

A quality product.

It's a bear to break the barrel brand new.

By SeanUSADecember 18, 2020 Verified Purchase

Pre-CORONA, I had a cheap multipump .177 rifle (location: 2 decades unknown) and my dad's CO2 1950s era BB pistol. I started with getting my deceased paternal grandfather's .20 Sheridan fixed earlier this year. Now, I have .177 CO2 Peacemaker replica, two .22 rifles, and now this .30 bad boy. Tis the season, so it was quite impressive seeing what this 130s Vortex did to pumpkins compared to those other 4. She was on back order for a month or two; totally worth it!

I'm a fan of the sights on this model. I considered, and looked, at scopes, but now that I've had it in hand... I don't expect to add a scope or alter sights. I had some buyer's uncertainty regarding ease of breaking the barrel, but it is definitely reasonable. For your kid... no, but I doubt you want them to have this model anyway.

weight. It is what it is. Lighter would be nice (like always) but I do enjoy how solid/sturdy the build feels on this Hatsan. I need to order a sling though for when I'm Elmer Fudding after city rabbits.

By RichardUSAOctober 6, 2020 Verified Purchase

I'm really happy with this air rifle, and it is priced nice too. I recommend it, especially for people that don't want to buy the cartridges, pump, air tank or compressor, but want a powerful air rifle.

The power of this breakbarrel is amazing! I put my paper targets onto 3/4'' plywood, and every shot blasts right through it. Its fiber optic sights are pretty accurate right out of the box. It's nice to have so much power without having to buy any air cartridges, pumps, tanks, or compressor. one pump and you're ready to shoot.

This gun is not for young shooters, it's pretty big and heavy. Some people say it is too hard to cock, to them I say... hit the gym. If it isn't hard, it's too easy. This is a man's gun and if you are not very strong, then it may not be for you.

By Swamp AngelUSAJune 18, 2020

Making the barrel short sometimes increases velocity, depending on the pellet, but it's a trade off with accuracy and cocking effort.

Good Value, Styling

The reason this gun is hard to cock is because the barrel is too short-- 10.6". And it doesn't help to have a sharp front sight right where leverage is best. My Hatsan Striker has an 18" barrel, and my HW 35 barrel is 19".

I just bought this gun can it kill a turkey sized bird

asked Wallace from USA

Can this air rifle safely shoot slugs?

asked Rex from USA

To heavy & to much barrel drag contacting the rifling. Pellets have a smaller area engaging the rifling

James from USA

Will this rifle accept conical slugs like those sold by Griffin and Apex?

asked Rex from USA

Does this pellet rifle create enough fpe to humanely eliminate foxes and coyotes ?

asked Joe from USA

I noticed inside of the hatsan 130 & 135 there is a PCP style port near the rear of the compression tube.. over the trigger assembly that a PCP fill probe goes into that allowed me to pump up the gas ram to 200BAR! the FPS went from the factory 550fps to .. now the 44.75 grain pellets fly at a constant 610fps... Almost 37fpe! On PA's calculator.. but the cocking effort is definitely increased... Not for the weak.. It's now worth taking out hunting medium sized game out to 75yards.

James from USA

No, not unless you're very close (10 yards) and hit them square in the head. You need a .45 or .50 for that.

Cory from USA

Rex from USA

Hello I bought a hatsan .30 air rifle and What Type of scope do you need for a hatsan mod 130s vertex QE. 30 caliber because I bought a scope and it didn't clip so please can anyone answer my question

asked Edy from USA

u need a scope with 11 milimeter fittings for the gun fitings as in the clamps holding in to the gun

Nick from USA

My box shows the max velocity at 550fps, it shows it here as 590fps and elsewhere I've seen a different box showing 600fps, I know the fps varies by why is it stated differently? Are they all the same make of the model?

asked Cameron from USA

It depends on how much psi (bar) the ram is pumped up to. I used a PCP fill probe to bring my 135 & 130 up to 200bar.. shooting 44.75g at 610fps.. right at 37fpe.

James from USA

Negligible differences. Don't sweat the small stuff.

Cory from USA

Whats a good scope to put on this rifle thats stays sighted

asked John from USA

Any good scope. Nightforce, Leupold, Nikon, Redfield.

Cory from USA

Is this rifle strong enough for deer hunting? I am new to the air gun world and looking for an affordable deer hunting rifle.

asked Frank from USA

if you can get close enough, n use the 135 vortex QE,it has the wood stock

david from USA

This rifle with the "gas ram" pumped up to 200 bar.. using the 44.75g pellets can take ANY small & medium sized game within 50 yards (instantly) with a head shot! No guesswork, actual facts!

James from USA

Absolutely not.

Cory from USA

No where near enough power You'd have to go PCP and a bigger bore like the Air Force brand ones; and it probably wouldn't be legal to in your state anyways. Most states don't allow any air guns for deer. Look up your state or country's hunting laws surrounding air guns.

Jamie from USA

no the best pellet gun for deer hunting is the AirForce Texan LSS Moderated Big-bore PCP Air Rifle .50 cal

Jack from USA

By all accounts, this is not a deer gun.

Colin from USA

If your state allows big game hunting with air rifles, there will be a minimum fpe requirement. At the stated 34 fpe produced by the Vortex, it's almost certainly illegal to hunt deer with it no matter where you are. To hunt big game where I live an air rifle must produce no less than 215 fpe. You may want to consider shopping for a PCP rifle, which will be more suitable for hunting deer. And remember to aways check with your local Department of Wildlife for hunting regulations. Your state may not allow big game hunting with air rifles.

Rex from USA

Will this rifle fire one of the arrows like some of the other's I have seen? I think it takes at least a 30 caliber to do that but not sure about the barrel length.

asked Will from USA

Airbolts do not shoot out of break barrel guns. Only PCP airguns have the power and barrel length to shoot airbolts.

Mark from USA

How exactly does the buttpad adjust exactly

asked Derrick from USA

There are different thicknesses of buttpads that can be popped in and out of the stock.

Mark from USA

Was wondering if this gun comes with a sling ? If so because mine did not thank you.

asked Michael from USA


Mark from USA

What is the maximum range of the rifle

asked Brandon from USA

With accuracy 60 yards. Free flight 200 yards.

Mark from USA

What is maximum yards the gun will shoot

asked Brandon from USA

With accuracy 60 yards. free flight 200 yards.

Mark from USA

What makes the FPS specs slightly higher on the mod 130S versus the model 135 with the walnut stock? Thinking that they are the same gun other than the stocks?

asked Scott

What scope would be compatible?

asked Carlos from USA

Is it really getting 40 for more than the 135 .30???

asked Randy Job

This uses .30 caliber bullets as in a bullet you would reload with, or do you need to buy special .30 caliber airgun pellets? Could this be used to down fox or coyotes out to say 50 yards? This doesn't require a scuba tank, but is a cocking barrel type air rifle? Piston?

asked Tim

How powerful is this?
