The newest HUBEN K1 Semi-Auto are being tested, and they are quite impressive.  We should be shipping by the end of the week.

Call 714-907-0067 to reserve one before we run out!

Mention you read about us on the GTA forum when ordering and we'll include a very nice TopGun Airguns case with lots of pockets for pellets, probes, etc.

I was ready to  get  Huben K1 at CZ/EU  four  month  ago but  inaccuracy ( more then 2*MOA )  has stopped me.

However hammerless system is interesting still for me.
Can you compare/explain  durability to hammer system ?

It's nice looking, but no point in a semi automatic if I can't place the first or follow up shot accurately...just wondering...

After producer have changed  the barrel at Huben K1 v2  the accuracy for not too long bullet at not too high  speed is OK. Some advantages are described  in the next link however  I have not found any information about durability of  hammer less  system at 150-180 bar.

Our Hubens (with Lothar Walther Barrel) are proving EXTREMELY ACCURATE!
« Reply #6 on: March 20, 2017, 05:51:05 PM »
Our Hubens have Lothar Walther Barrels and are proving to be extremely accurate. 

Here is an informal 19 shots at 50 yards by Brett Sch******* of CA.

One customer bought 5 Friday, another  bought his second today, and a third customer bought 3.   In short, those that shoot them like them.  We have a few few left, but don't wait too long. After these go, they won't be in the country until our next order comes in around 6 months.

Accuracy, see target below 19 shots at 50 yards

What calibres?  What FPE?  Has the accuracy improved???

Caliber = .22

Power = They are easily shooting 34 grain pellets at 1050 F/S with accuracy = 83 FPE (though I advert 34 grain at 950 F/S with accuracy = 68FPE.
The Hubens can easily send these above 1200 F/S)

Accuracy = Very Good. They have Lothar Walther barrels.  Here is a photo of 19 shots fired quickly at 50 yards.  It's just one big clump of lead.


As I posted in this thread, people that own them love them and are buying multiples.  I'm happy with satisfied customers.

2.   Version 2 of Huben K1 has LW  LR  un choked barrel with 16,4 twist

Sorry, I didn't realize the vendor gates got so much traffic.  We'll start to monitor for questions.
Bottom line, these are the latest version. Don't know for sure what the twist rate is, only know the accuracy is very good. Will need to ask that same question of the factory, as we are at the point that we are now low in inventory and need to re-order.

Are these barrels choked, or unchoked?

Thanks
