HATSAN is coming out with a user-adjustable gas ram is being called "VORTEX". It appears to be based on the design of the original THEOBEN gas ram. It is to be user-adjustable via a pump, just like the first THEOBEN gas rams.

This thread on GTA has some details http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=42662.0

I spoke with Rick Eutsler about a month ago and he CONFIRMED the information and said that they WILL be available in the USA..

Also, HATSAN is likely going to have ALL replacement parts available by the end of the year.

This site is Russian, but there is no mistake in interpreting the content http://www.forum.airgunshop.kiev.ua/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=182

Interesting, the theoben ram has been copied before (the original vortek from Tom) there were a couple of problems with that one - user error maybe amoung them, you know folks WILL over charge them if they can- most all failed and no support there was also the little patient infringment problem but that's now well out of date.
Would be interesting to find out if it's the same chinese company that makes the crosman/vortek ram that is going to make the "vortex" or if hatsan is doing it in house, or?
 Hopefully it will be rebuildable and have parts support.

From what I read the springs are still their just it's available for upgrade for the ram.So PA probably will upgrade for you if you want it or whoever the carrier will be.Then again they could already have them in or without.Hopefully they will sell just the ram kit for the ones out there already.My piston is ram ready.

Looks like great news for upgrading your older Sniper 125,when the spring breaks!
Will the power be the same or greater with the their gas ram kit,as in the .25 cal Sniper 125?

I have only seen that one chart for comparing velocity. If it holds true, across the board, the Vortex gas ram should give the same performance. However, there isn't enough information to say for sure.

         Hope those replacement parts do become available. If so, I'll be getting me a Hatsan. That walnut woodgrain camo pattern is SWEET!

Our first indication of when parts will become available will likely be through Rick Eutsler.

Thanks ::) by the way, the guy in the techincs and repair said, starting from the global release of the rams they will only produce gas ram only rifles, this means no more spring guns there fore the spring releated spare parts and the spring it self begin to dissapear slowly from the market. i highly recomend on upgrading on thoose gas-rams because you will probably won't find any spare parts in the future.. and the guy underlined that there will be no velocity loss when you get to the gas-rams.. yaay good news :D the thing that im not sure about is, the guy also said that "when we ship to the US, the vendors like pyramid air can put rams in the rifles" well... is this means the end customer will not be able to buy the ram himself ? will the vendor or hatsan make the rules for selling the end customer in US ? i think the vendors will try to gain profit from it and try to convert guns to get some "montage cost" paid, but who knows maybe they will sell it a bit higher and get that little profit in that way. when i call them on monday for my broken front sight and lost cheekpiece adjustment screw, i will also bother them with my and your questions ::)

Will these news rams have to be charged or pumped up? I saw where you said they were adjustable. I don't really understand what you mean. I am a newbie, so maybe its a dumb question.
