... I don't have any issues with mine. Mine was pretty accurate out of the box.


I live in Russia, the Hatsans are imported in our country for almost 15 years by now. Older models, like 55-90 (they are based around the same internals), even before loud buzzwords like "quattro trigger" and "SAS" feels OK at first glance and considered as a cheaper alternative to Gamo 440, but even back than often show problems with accuracy and durability. Today our gunstores are literally flooded with Hatsan airguns: our people are not rich and the stores tends to sell the most affordable stuff. Newbies who walked beside a gunstore gets blown away by a "super-powerfull-without-a-license" airguns and there are myriads of 125 and 135 models in use. But from an engineering point of view the 125/135 model is a total nightmare: overweighted piston (in comparison to well-designed rifles of the same class, f.e. gamo-1250 and diana-350), poor quality of materials, awful rifling inside a berrels. Maybe they are not so good only in our country? Nobody likes Russia and it is very possible they selling a B-grade crap to us: the rifles that didn't pass QC. Either way, the guns are not accurate (if it can hit a glass bottle at 20 meters - it is considered OK for spring-powered Hatsan...), even after tideous tuning and adjusting they not lasts long - stock tends to break, trigger malfunctions, scope rails comes off under the weight of a scope and so on. There are a lot of spare parts in stores (incl. fake ones), but that didn't help much. Our gunstores just making money out of poor people.

The situation a little better with a PCP rifles, but they also have many issues - the same problems with barrels, the muzzle velocity may be unstable without additional tuning and adjusting. Early version of 44-10 sometimes has faulty reservoir plugs (extremely scary thing...). So there is a very strong bad reputation for a Hatsan rifles over there.

Yet the Hatsan hand pump is totally ok for the money 8)

Is it just me or there is no price list on your website?
Hard to sell something if we don't see a price or a easy
way to order it.


a 9mm pistol or .30 pistol would be something I would be interested in. are they made I know I know there is the .25 but it's not what I want.


Hello Frank,

We are a wholesaler only, so our Public website only gives general product information. If you would like information on pricing/availabiltiy we can point you towards a local dealer and they can help from there.

Thanks,

Bell Outdoors

The Trophy and most of the Galatian series would be legal to import without any modifications. Most of the other PCPs are only offered in a QE version, so arrangements would have to be made to remove the baffles before import (similar to what is done with the Marauder).

I would be interested in seeing the Trophy, Nova and Predator in Canada

There are a few that I like, but I am not sure that I would want to buy anything made in Turkey with the current political climate there.
Also all of the Turkish gun companies have hit or miss QC reputations.
