Last night I ordered a hatsan at44-10 tact in .25 with a pump and space air cylinder. After reading a lot of reviews I'm a little concerned with the apparent machining issues with the hatsan products .most of the posts are from a year or two ago and none of them concerning the tactile model. This is my first pcp rifle and I'm looking forward to going rabbit hunting with it before the season closes. I'm open to advise on weather I should open up the gun as soon as I get it and clean and deburr the sharp edges or wait til it's broken it with a few hundred pellets through it. The rifle pump and cylinder were ordered from the store here and I also bought a 3x9x40 ao scope and high mount rings as well as a couple tins of led. I'm hoping to see the rifle mid week next week . Until then I'll keep plinking with my qb57 mod and benjamin trail np. :D

I own 2 and if youre comfortable doing it, then I say yes. For youre own peace of mind. Anything factory made has the potential for things getting missed.

Haven't touched mine except for having it regulated. Hits what it's aimed at repeatedly.

Fit and finish ain't no Air Arms S410 or HW 100, but then it wasn't a $1000.00 either :D

Nuff said

I guess I'll just tear into it . luckily I have a machine shop at my service whenever I need any help.Not to mention I've been a licenced mechanic with multiple tickets for the last 15 plus years ,i'm kinda handy with all things mechanical. :) I've already sourced all new viton o rings (no silicone available ).Thinking of fabricating a working bipod with extendable legs ,roughly 36". Just a thought for now.

I got into mine to do the basic deburr, smooth and lube and a parts diagram will be helpful to you for reassembly.

Also, I found that you can tighten the rearmost action screw too much, causing the action to bind. So, tight is good, but too tight is possible. Doesn't take much, so you won't have to worry about it being loose, either.

And I love the trigger. Best one in my gun cabinet.

We'll let me start, some minor issues with the stock like the previous post states, over tightening caused the magazine to bind I fixed it with some washers under the centre mount hole. No major burrs to clean off , cleaned the barrel and tested about 50 jsb exact through it . Got my scope mounted and zeroed at 10 yards , grouping is awesome compared to the rest of my toys. Love the utg 3x9x40 with illumination . I really spoiled myself this time. Long story short 490 fps average over 20 shots . I haven't counted how many shots from 200 to 120 bar but I believe it's close to 80 if not 90. Next are the Bob mods for full power ++. I did order a second cylinder so I can use one for plinking and the other for hunting. Trigger is the best I have . The only down side is I find it front heavy . Noise level is no worse than the Benji trail or a 2240 . I'll post once I've got the mods done. :D

Were I to buy another PCP, to go along with the BAM51 .22 and the Hatsan BT65 .177, I'd get a Brocock instead.

Shot strings with stock valve sub 495 fps setup .average of 390fps over ten shots. This seems kinda low for a rifle rated at 495. Tried to adjust the hammer from full in to full out ,can't get higher than 405 at 200 bar. I'll try my friend with a lathe. Take down the valve stem a bit to help breath a bit more. :D

I now have roughly 600 pellets through the riffle. I have modded the spare cylinder valve stem to Bobs specs and at 10 turns out am chucking 25. 4 exact kings at 890 fps on the high end and 825 low side. Considering this is a 19 " barrel I think it's pretty good. Getting 20 or so shots from 200 bar to 120. Next is accuracy , from 25 meters getting grouping the size of a quarter from bench. No issues to report since the pinching magazine was fixed . This thing just gets smoother the more led I put through it. I have a lot to learn about the pcp system in general and the simplicity of this riffle allows me to play at a reasonable price. Thanks to all others that have posted how to's , greatly helps greenhorns like me .
