Mine works fairly smooth also. All I hear is a little spring twang,then the hit off the target,when you pull the trigger.Almost too quiet for me,I would rather hear a little pop out the barrel,as I normally shoot things,like pictured to the far left!
This wasn't meant to be a knock on the TH. My TH outperformed my Sniper for about $100 less. My perception is that the Sniper is the Cadillac and the TH is the Corvette. They are both good guns.
Yea my Sniper is the Camo model, there are no mold ridges anywhere to be found. The camo pattern is perfect and overall the rifle is finished out darn near perfect. The bluing is deep, consistant and zero tooling marks in the metal. This is my first Quattro trigger and I was completely surprised by the overall feel of the trigger. It's very smooth, with an effortless 1st stage that backs up to a 2nd stage with zero creep or noticeable overtravel. Pull weight might be a little heavy but certainly nothing like what I read here. It is so good I do not plan on doing anything with it. I did take the rifle apart after reading the post here and am very happy to report that my particular rifle does not have the problems I saw described here in some post. There was several small pieces of metal shaving from the machining stuck in the red lube but my seal looks fine. The piston also had some metal shavings inside it but I have seen worse in much higher priced springer's that I bought. So far I am extremely pleased with this Hatsan. It is a beast , heavy, stout cocking, accurate, and powerful. Exactly what I was expecting a 28+ft/lb spinger to be.
Does the stock material seem like completely different types, or does it seem the sniper has an added finish or layer of something added to it?
Oh well. The finish on that Sniper stock is giving me ideas for the TH at any rate. Going to have to look into some of the coatings out there and see what might work.
