Hatsans are imo a very good quality airgun.. I have not owned a hatsan but have done enough research on them to last awhile....

Actually should I ever buy another springer its going to be a .22 talon or falcon.. just haven't decided if I want all black stock or a camo stock

Many of the Hatsan range are sold as other brands all over the world. Walther, Webley and even Winchester (airguns) are three of them. Most of the higher powered Hatsans from the model 125 up to the model 155 fall into this category. I'm sure there are many more brands but I can't recall, as they differ from country to country. As "Hatsan's" they are usually as good-a-quality as any other of the typical brands floating around, but, some of them have had their problems. Some of the models up to the very latest generation (as in up to a year ago) have had poor engineering faults resulting in anything from your fingers sliced open on some of the sharp edges left on the metalwork, to, undersized piston seals and poorly made springs, both "possibly" resulting in premature wear and tear of the particular parts => snapped or weakened springs and pistons slamming home in the cylinder, possibly causing things to kinda explode. Apart from these two more serious complaints, they seem to please most owners with their power...

I have a couple of these (under different brand names) and YES, they have had their little faults but oh my, how they impress me...

Mmmm hatsan mod 125 sniper with the plastic stock... that's the stuff I drool over....

I think the real true hatsans you see on hatsans website are just beautiful rifles sleek, smooth, sexy and a power house... if pa picks up the hatsan line I'm deff gonna buy one, *(&^ if its a reliable web store I will find the mod 125 and buy it

Yes Hatsan's are great guns...
But there seems to be a few that are building them up 2 something they ain't...
They have there issues like any of the lower/mid range guns..
The Hatsan branded guns are not light years above what you already
get as re-brands..stay realistic or be disappointed...
Diana "RWS" / HW etc are better built & finished....

I hope who ever is the importer over there will ship offshore..
as theres a couple of models/cals that our imported doesn't bring in
that I would like to add to my Hatsan collection...

Oh I know their not light years ahead of other airguns but they are the first airguns I've seen with a recoil system to dampen the vibrations when shot and to be honest they are the best looking air rifles I've seen

Hatsan are well made springers for the most part. Yes they are heavy but they also use solid steel parts instead of stamped out parts like many of the other air gun makers have used. Accuracy can be compared to a good RWS air gun. Not even same league as HW air guns.

As a  matter of fact neither are the RWS air guns of today. HW is far more superior in quality than RWS IMO.

There are Velocity and Muzzle Energy graphs attached to my previous post. (Falcon Hunter .25.doc). I have each string in an excel sheet if you are interested, I can email them to you. I chose not to post the whole thing as the sheet also conaints 4 graphs. http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=18157.0;attach=23276
