I like my .177 Proxima. I paid $389 for it pre-ordered from PA before they got'em in stock. I'd keep it. That's a nice gun for $99. I just punch paper so most of my guns are .177. I'm debating putting a spring in it when the warranty runs out. Don't care for gas ram. Maybe get rid of that ugly front sight assembly.

A few years ago I bought a Dominator. Back then you never saw them under $350. PA had them on sale in .177 for $250 but they sent me the carbine. I liked it and kept it. It was in the wrong box. One of the best shooting guns I have. The best shooting Hatsan I have. Tried to buy a wood stock for it from Kral (they would have had to order it) but it was $250 just for the stock.

I have a Tommy. I think it's nicer looking than the 95 and a few years ago AOA had'em for like $125 and if you got it they sold you a $130 Hawke scope for $25. No brainer. I have an air stripper on it. Seems to help.

Got a 135 and a 155, they're keepers. I have the olive green AK/SKS slings on the ones with sling mounts. Leather tab on the ends fit perfect. I like the look.

The Hatsans that come with a weaver rail, the rail is mounted to far forward and they all need an off-set mount. On the Proxima I got a Simmons 3-9x40 30mm tube scope on top of an off-set Weaver one piece SPR mount model 48377W. Walmart has both. Scope's $49, mount's $29. Mount is 30mm but comes with the inserts if you want to use a scope with a 1 inch tube.

JMO, I think a heavy .22 pellet will do about anything a .25 will do and more choices in ammo.

KEEP THE PROXIMA! U GOTTA' A DEAL. When you're done shooting it to put it away without dry firing, load one pellet in the mag., cock it and chamber the pellet then pull the lever back, remove the mag, put the cocking lever back forward and shoot it. Don't point it up the pellet will fall out and could fall thru the transfer port into the compression chamber. That happened to me. Guess it flattened out. Hasn't effected anything.

I'd buy a tin of Crosmans if I needed a paper weight on my desk.

Sorry, guys, to long. Later, Tim.

I contacted hatsan and they actually responded to me withing 2 hours of me calling. I am going to return the proxima in.177 caliber and they said I could pick any mod 95. Sooooo I picked the Mod 95 Vortex QE in .22. I hope that I like that gun. Getting this gun really amped my feelings up for airguns and that stock is saweet. Well I did the right thing so the other person can have their gun and they did the right thing by letting me pick a better gun. (I even asked to keep it. They said no.)

Good Form!
Karma has a way of coming back around and I bet you will be rewarded for your honesty and returning the Proxima with a very nice 95.

One of these days I'll probably buy a Hatsan myself but unfortunately I've been using all my extra funds for bills, food, insurance and the list goes on.  Winter time puts a crimp on my fun spending on account of the outrageous heating bills but I have been buying some stuff on Ebay recently as many know and it's been keep the fun meter at full tilt for this old fart.  I've really been into pistols with open sights recently and there's just a hand full of good ones built these days that really fit  the bill so I've been resorting to mostly co2 vintage . . . they're the cats meow IMO.

I've always liked the fact that Hatsan builds some beautiful looking guns with their Turkish walnut and I'm a natural born tinkerer so the tinkering with a gun doesn't bother me in the least, I've been doing it most all my life on one thing or another.

Hey Wayne,
If you like to tinker a refurb Hatsan 95 would be a perfect ....... for only $100.

They're a very adequate springer with the possibility of getting a beautiful Walnut stock.  I tuned about (12) Hatsan 95s, about 1/3 to 1/2 of them had beautiful stocks, with only 1/4 of 'em coming with super plain wood.

If you tinker, tune the trigger and maybe detune a bit by clipping or heating and compressing a few coils.  A top-hat and buttoning the piston would really help along with using water bottle plastic inside the piston.

As a former St. Joseph, MI resident, and occasional Houghton, MI visitor .... I can understand the massive Winter heating bills :P.

I still have a Yooper scooper but I never use it. Takes too much time.  A plow on the front of my truck is a much better option.

Sorry guys for leaving you hanging, but after talking to Hatsan USA about shipping me out a new rifle they ceased to respond to me. I have waited 6 days and still no response. I now have the promixa mounted with a scope and it has now been put into service. I have no idea what is up with Hatsan service but they really need to get that straightened out before I even look at getting a different rifle from them. Is there even a number in which you can actually talk to a person?

IME for swaps like that, the Seller won't ship out the second rifle until the first one is returned and verified intact. Did Hatsan agree to send the replacement Mod95 out first?

Good for you! They agreed to send you a 95 Vortex QE to fix their screw up and it's a pretty big one considering a refurb Proxima is something like a $220 rifle vs. the $100 Model 95 springer you ordered. I'd hang on to that Proxima myself until the rifle they promised me finally showed up at my door and I verified that what they agreed to is actually inside that box and works.

Have fun shooting it cuz I'd do that too...lol

Personally I would not mind if they did not ship out the other rifle. This gun shoots really really nicely even though it is a beast to hold. I donít think the other rifle will come due to the fact that it has been a week without a reply and still no gun. If I do happen to receive a gun I will be more than happy to send this one back, but I am not going to waste my time trying to contact Hatsan for a mistake they made. They need to make it right and so far they have shown no interest in doing so. With that being said..... I am a new owner of a Proxima .177.
