Hatsan USA issued me a RMA luckily I had kept the old box that the gun was shipped in from Airgun Depot it took about 3 weeks to get my gun back from Hatsan. Upon checking the serial number they had sent me a completely new or remanufactured gun. That was very cool of them. Well about a month later guess what yea you guessed the gas piston failed again I contacted Hatsan USA and they immediately sent me a RMA which included shipping it took about 3 weeks to get the gun back this time it was the same gun only repaired all is well and the gun is going strong. I really like this gun and as far as I am concerned Hatsan USA stands behind their guns first class all the way. I would never ever be afraid or hesitant to buy another Hatsan product again because I know they will make it right if something goes wrong with one of their products.
I bought my Hatsan Model 95 Vortex QE in .177 from Airgun depot on May 27 2016. I have probably shot about 1000 rounds through it. I really like this gun its lighter than my Diana 350 magnum and a lot easier to cock. The trigger is not as smooth as the Diana but after getting used to it you get feel for it. I put this gun away for the winter and when the weather warmed up I started shooting my Diana trying to master it. When I finally did get the Hatsan out I was shocked at how much easier it was to cock than I remember, when I first pulled the trigger it just burped and the pellet did not move it took three cycles before it would clear the pellet from the barrel yikes we have a vortex failure also the shroud turned on the barrel (last year) but it was never a real problem because I am using a scope instead of iron sights it just looks weird. I contacted Hatsan USA on May 28th 1 day after the year warranty period and this is their response.
It sounds as if your Vortex piston has leaked down. You can refill the Vortex if you have a fill kit for one of our PCP rifles. The Vortex should only be filled to 140bar. The other option is we can issue you an RMA and have you send it to us and we will repair the rifle. Which would you rather do?
This is the request that I sent to Hatsan:
Had not used the gun all winter went use it this spring and it seems to me that the gas power plant has failed it takes no force to cock the gun and when you insert a pellet it does not have enough energy to even push the pellet down the barrel. It takes three pumps for it to finally clear the barrel .Also the shroud has turned off center but that was never a problem because I am using a scope it just doesn‚€™t look right. The gun was operating just fine when I put it away for put winter.
Not sure what they are talking about as far as I know the vortex is buried deep inside the rifle and I have no clue on how to refill it and I‚€™m still not sure whether Hatsan will warranty the repair or not will keep all updated
Enter the Hatsan 95. Wanting to recapture the fun and performance of that RWS 48, but not wanting to shell out $500, I decided on this Hatsan. I've probably fired around 150 pellets so far, and I'm not disappointed in the least. It did diesel for roughly the first 100 pellets, but that's to be expected. I intend to shoot through my chronograph when the weather improves, but I have no doubt it achieves the advertised 1000 fps with mid weight pellets. I say this because the QE moderator is very effective outdoors in open areas, and have observed the crack of a sonic boom while shooting 5.5 gr PBA pellets. That is proof positive those pellets are traveling in excess of 1200 fps. The heavier pellets I've tested, ranging from 7.2gr through 11.57gr, exhibited no sonic boom.
The trigger is quite good. Very clean break, good weight. I've been unable to achieve a whole lot of adjustability out of it however. It appears to have been factory set for about the lowest pull weight achievable, which by my estimation, is around 3-4 lbs pull on the break. Which is just fine for me.
So far I'm achieving the best groups with 8.8gr Crow Magnums, 9.26gr Barracuda Hunter Extremes, and 11.57gr Silver Points. It definitely does not like some pellets so I'm glad I purchased a sample pack of varying weights and profiles for testing. I have noticed that the heaviest pellet I've tested, the 11.57gr silver points, produce good groups, but occasionally tumble leaving oblong holes on paper targets. So my particular 95 maybe doesn't have a rifling twist rate that's optimal for pellets on the heavier end of the .177 spectrum. That's fine, I get excellent 1/2" groups with midrange weighted pellets and predict roughly 14 fpe with these pellets. I'll be able to confirm that figure when I chronograph them.
I didn't mount the included Optima 3-9x32 scope until after the rifle stopped dieseling (smoking after each shot). This is a cheap scope and it will probably hold up better if you do the same. The scope is holding zero and while not high quality, it's functioning fine for now. You can actually adjust for parallax by removing the objective end cap and screwing the lense holder in or out until your target comes into focus. While not a practical procedure for fast adjustment, it is at least possible to adjust.
The rifle is of good quality and construction. The metal parts are well finished, everything is tight fitting. Parts of the sights are plastic, as well as the trigger guard, and safety button but appear to be plenty sturdy. The safety button is ideally located and resets upon cocking. The stock is a very nicely finished piece of walnut. It is a little brittle as I discovered when installing sling studs. Drill as large of pilot hole as possible for sling studs or the surrounding wood may start to chip out.
Overall I am very pleased with this rifle for the cost. I think you'd be hard pressed to acquire a nicer air rifle for $200.
After opening the box and I saw my new Hatsan I will admit I teared up a little. This was the most beautiful Turkish Walnut Stock I have ever seen and the Bluing was just magnificent. I thought you had sent me the wrong gun and someone was going to get fired for sending out such a quality Rifle. I checked the numbers and no mistake this was my HATSAN.
My first shot out of the box with open sights was dead on. Amazing. If you are wanting to go top of the line you need a HATSAN.
It is a little heavy to cock.
