Hatsan's Model 25 Supercharger just got a new heart -- the Vortex gas-piston powerplant. No twang, no buzz. Just smooth shooting! It takes a bit of effort to cock this air gun, but that's to be expected when you're getting 700 fps from a pistol! Hatsan includes a cocking aid, which you can screw on to the muzzle (remove the muzzle cap).
This air pistol is equipped with Hatsan's "XRS-Recoil Reduction System". Recoil is absorbed during the shot by the design of the sliding action. This makes for a more accurate and comfortable shooting experience.

great very hard to cock but gets a little easier as you go
does a number on back yard squirrel's
has good sites and no trouble shooting 0ne inch groups at 15 yards
Other pellets may do better but I am still breaking it in and saving the good stuff until then. The sights will adjust where you need them to. The grips are right hand only.. The stock is a two piece spring loaded thing that seems to mimic to some extent the artillery hold fairly well. cocking with the threaded extension is a adult wt but not excessive. its cut for 11mm rings .
Gas piston generates exceptional power;
A very nice adjustable even smooth trigger; but didn't need any adjustment for me (I'm used to double action revolvers.);
Exceptional accuracy; my Benjamin gives me approx 1" groups at 10 meters; the Hatsan is down to about 3/4" groups;
Reasonable range of adjustability for front and rear sights;
Minimal recoil for the amount of power generated.;
Smooth cocking, especially with the extension;
Reasonably quiet for power generated;
Nice right-handed grips.
If your looking for a break barrel pistol this is one of the best. (If your strong)
This gun was made to be powerful and accurate, and it does both well. Hatsan rates their fps with lead pellets, so using the alloy ones just makes it more brutal.
However, one proble I did experience the second day I attempted to use it...it would NOT lock-shut...after loading. The silver steel, beveled, piston, that is just below the breech itself, (& which locks the barrel closed) was 'stuck solid in its' bore. It refused to rotate or (more importantly) slide down in its' housing...and against its' spring.
Pell Oil did not help, but WD40 did...after allowing it to soak-down the bore.
The manual does not advise oiling that piston. It should.
Not much help
I trusted them and now they will have to earn my trust back by fixing the matter??????
