Refurbed Hatsan 95 by HatsanUsa
« on: February 01, 2019, 11:42:07 AM »
I got my first springer air rifle about two months ago and have been interested in getting more. I just now have an addiction to air guns and keep wanting to learn more about them. I have had my eye on the hatsan 95 and have been looking around for a good deal on one. I have also heard great things and very bad things about the mod 95, which ones are true? I was able to find the hatsan 95 refurbished on the hatsanusa website for 99 dollars. Is this deal even worth looking at or should I just walkaway from the hatsan 95? Thank you very much for your input.


with shipping it is 110.

I have purchased several Hatsan break barrels and one under lever.
Most of mine are the gas ram/ vortex models, and so far they have been nice. They settle down much quicker than the spring versions of Hatsans air rifles.
I have two model 95 Airguns, one is a regular vortex and the other is the QE.
For scopes I use utg or hammers, though I have a Tasco 2.5-10 varmint on my non-QE mod 95.
As far as issues on the Airguns I own, I have made sure all th screws are tight, and I have used dental floss under the Breech seals.
I’m not the most handy when it comes to anything. So I have mainly done simple things with my hatsans and been patient with them.
If you get a good rifle from Hatsan then you shouldn’t have too many issues outside of screws becoming loose.
But my experience has been mostly good.

Hatsans are fundamentally good rifles but the three that I have had all needed substantial modification to get them to an acceptable standard.
I would say they are a good buy for someone prepared to work on them.
They can be harsh shooters.

 Hatsan 95 is a nice rifle I have gotten several Hatsans from Field Supply.

I've had a .22 95 Vortex QE for 6 or so months and I just love it. I unknowingly dry fired it half a dozen times when I got it, but 3,500+ rounds later it's still functions consistently and accurately. Of course I check/tighten screws pretty much every other session, but that's a given with a springer.

I admit the disparity among reviews is kind of weird, but I'd honestly give mine 5 stars.

What type of accuracy are we looking at. I have a gamo that I can consistently shoot a quarter size and even dime size group at 30 yards. I am looking for better accuracy not out of the box, but maybe with a little tinkering. I have not really read about any group sizes on here and I am just wondering what is to be expected of the hatsan 95.

Backroads, what distance were you shooting at. I am mostly looking for dime size at around 30 to 40 yards. Is that achievable?

In the right hands, yes very achievable.  ;D
Now whether those hands are yours is up to you. 8)

Which Gamo rifle do you have?

I have a refurb Hatsan Mod95 V QE 22 which I think is one my best break-barrels. I might be able to group 1" at 30 yards on a good day.

Consistent dime size or smaller groups at 30-40 Yards with a break-barrel springer is VERY good. This is  heading into PCP territory.

My rifle is a shadow whisper that I was able to pick up at Walmart for 99 dollars. It is the same thing as the silent cat. I lubed and did a light tune if you want to call it that by myself and was able to knock the groups down from around an inch and a half at 30 yards to about a dime every time. I would love another springer to work on and I think the hatsan 95 is it.

I am one of the unlucky ones who got a lemon. 25% low FPS and Grinding on cocking. Promptly returned it to PA no questions asked.
It can happen whether you're buying airguns, electronics, or automobiles.
 Hope if you get a refurb it's not that one.

Hey Jord99999,
I would agree with Novagun 100% ;).
I say this as I've tuned at least 12 Hatsan 95s, 135s and 1000Xs.  I tune every gun I buy .... that's my compulsion, but all Hatsans need a tremendous amount of work polishing internals and re-working the trigger to make them shine.  Some come with absolutely beautiful, Walnut stocks, so they're a great looking gun too 8).
- If you not very mechanical, and want a fine rifle, my advice is to buy a Weihrauch and just shoot it.
- If you're not looking for a fine rifle, but a beautiful, powerful, adequate springer - try the Hatsan 95.
- If you have good mechanical skills to tune the Hatsan 95, understanding that it will most likely, never be as good as a Weihrauch, but a inexpensive cool project, then get a Hatsan 95.
- If you have good mechanical skills, and want a really fine pellet gun, get a more expensive Weihrauch HW50S, HW35E or HW95 and tune it.

After tuning all my Hatsan's and learning much, out of the blue, I bought a HW35E.  I fell in love with the superior craftsmanship of Weihrauch Springers and sold ALL my Hatsans.  This is not to say that Hatsan's are bad, everything about the Weihrauch line is just better.  The only thing Weihrauchs lack is power vs. the Hatsan, which you quickly learn to understand ......... means nothing when you can't hit the bullseye consistently, due to added recoil and lack of build quality.

So, to summarize, the Hatsan 95 in your question is Worth $100, but if you're not mechanically inclined or looking for a "fine quality pellet gun", get the Weihrauch.  Obviously, if cash is a constraint, either save more for a Weihrauch or buy the affordable Hatsan, knowing its limitations.

Since I already have a break barrel in .177 would you recommend going with the same caliber(.177) or would you guys go with a .22. I seriously am thinking about pulling the trigger on this really quickly. Is the .22 going to give better accuracy?

 .22 wil give you different shooting optoons, and IMO is a good match for the 95s power output.

Hey Jord99999,
I always preferred the .177 caliber, but if you're gonna hunt, the .22 is the way to go :D.

I have Webley Tomahawk springers in .177 and .22 and except for cosmetic differences are the same rifle as the Hatsan 95 springer. Both were new out of the box, untouched and not broken in yet when I shot the targets below.

Either will work just as well for both targets or small pests and the .22 Tomahawk (I have 3) is one of my 2 go to rifles for whacking pests. Don't know if this will help any with your decision but keep us posted on what you finally decide.

Can't really say which one will be more accurate for you as too many outside factors are involved.

If you are only going to punch paper and shoot small pest birds, the 177 and its flatter trajectory works fine.

If you plan to hunt squirrel and rabbit size game, I'd go with the 22. As previously stated, the power plant of this rifle really does well with the 22 barrel and pellet weights. The 22 pellet trajectory is a bit more "loopy" at long range, but will usually drift less in light wind. Pellet cost and variety is almostt the same as the 177, so there is no downside here.

IMHO the power is on the lighter end for the 25 caliber. Pellet variety, cost, and range limit the usefulness of the 25. If I wanted a short range (20yds max) THUMPER to put the HURT on rats, the 25 version could be a winner.
