I want to buy my first PCP rifles.
I saw online the turkey made PCP rifles are cheap. Are they reliable?
Please anyone advise.
There are two brands that I knew.
Hatsam
Kral

Like products from any part of the globe, you've got the good stuff and the not so good stuff.

The two names you listed are capable of making quality products.

In general both the brands you mention are of good quality and will shoot as advertised. I am looking at getting a new Turkish gun from airgun archery fun ( Wes ) and will more than likely write a full review. Do you know what caliber you plan on buying?

I love my Krals. I have a Jumbo and a NP-03 in .25. The NP-03 is now a .22 from a barrel and bolt switch.

That's the one I am currently thinking about - Aselkon.

Great I'm looking to buy Hatsan BT65SB .22 Cal at AGS.
It would be my first PCP rifle.
Any suggestion about this rifle?

I think the BT65 is a good rifle and I’ve owned a few from .177 through .25 calibers. They are a little rough around the edges but clean up quite well. I would not pay over 500$ for one . There are better options in the same price range range. I will say their magazines are waaaayyyy better than any plastic /spring loaded magazine.

I agree, I have found the simple metal/O-ring magazine on the Hatsan work much better than the spring loaded types, with the only drawback that there is no positive feedback that you have emptied the mag. so I occasionally leave a few or dry fire one shot.
Anyhow, AGS is quite pricey for the BT65, and not that you shouldn't help them stay in business, but I suggest you scour the Forum for a pre-loved BT65. :drinkers:

Daryl,

Great quality stock, regulated, large bottle, dual gauges, decent accuracy, and Wes just rocks for support... I think you'll like it.

I've never been the type of guy to modify guns, just not really that mechanically gifted, but I do plan on taking this MX9 from Aselkon apart and figuring out how to tune it. Wes gave me some starting points.

looking pretty good!!! Just bought a new chronograph and a new .17Rem reamer. There goes the budget for
another PCP air rifle I won't shoot much, just like the last couple I bought. :roll:

I got myself an Aselkon MX6 in .25 cal from Wes on the way. I was a good boy , so I was allowed to splurge a little bit. Sure hope it’s accurate, if not I think I can get a decent barrel for cheap.

Sure seemed to work for Rick. - about 3/8" at 50 yards - 5-shot group with 18gr. and averaging 840fps with those.
Power is right at 28fpe. Not bad.

Yes- Wes is great to deal with. I've bought some good scopes and 3 guns from him, so far.

My Hatsan BT65 has always been very reliable and fun to shoot. The only real complaint I had about it was that it si quite heavy. Anyway, if you are looking for one in .25 mine is for sale along with the original Hatsan hand pump.
