A few comparisons?
« on: October 21, 2013, 04:53:15 AM »
Hey all, I'll be in the market for a maybe a couple more airguns soon. I've already decided on a Disco .22 w/ hand pump, to get a taste of PCP airguns. But I'm a big fan of springers and love their ease of use. Which leads me to my next questions.

Which would you, as a hunter not paper puncher, choose between these two only? Hatsan 125 .22 nitro piston OR Benjamin Trail XL1100? And why?

BTW I chose the NP versions because I prefer NP's, they just feel awesome in my experience. (Even if coil spring gives 1-3 fpe more) Thanks for any helpful input and for choosing within those 4!

I don't know about the two Trails, but I know that Hatsan is a heavy beast and I would not want to cart it through the woods....

The 125 does come with the vortex gas piston.

Yeah I was reading about all the hype earlier this year of adjustable rams from Hatsan, did the adjustable rams ever come out? Or is that what a vortex ram is?

IMO there's no comparison, the disco wins hands down. Its packs a serious punch, is lightweight and has  a very low fill pressure. Its only down side is the crummy pump they sell it with, and trigger. The trigger can be fixed for anywhere between 25-50 bucks, depending on which route you  choose, and the pump problem can be solved by getting a Hill or FX pump. Then you will have a gun that you can shoot as is for years, or modify as funds become available.
