Hatsan Sniper 125 .22 or .25

    Recommended Posts

    Hello chaps, seriously considering a cheap all weather rifle to go with my FX Cutlass

     

    I've read a couple of reviews and they seem to be cracking all purpose hunting rifles and really good value.

     

    Has anyone had any experience of them and how they handle?

     

    Cheers chaps

    I got a .22 striker and seriously impressed with it. Had a few higher end springers namely hw77/99s/80 and this is almost there. The only prob is a rough trigger. Does sub inch groups at 35 yards and crobo says 11.6 with the accupels, Very underated and clearly not like their shotguns.

    Came with 3-9x40 scope and bag for £150, can't be bad.

    Stuntman, get thee behind into Philip Webster Gunsmith, Swamp Lane, Great Ellingham, NR17 1LH, 01953 455697, he shifts loads of Hatsans (sold us two recently). His price on a Hatsan Sniper is £170, save you the £40 you would spend in petrol getting to Skegness! His has the bipod and sling fittings on it!

    Youngmans are also selling the Hatsan 125 Sniper, at £250! I did ring Philip up to check the price, so Andi give him a call!

    Bought, scoped up when I got home, tested and cleaned, soon to be stripped down this week to see how it works and maybe a little tune :)

    Problem may have been solved, the muzzle break is badly machined and appears to have been catching the skirts of the pellets on exit, I've removed the silencer and re-sighted the rifle. I need to spend a little time at the range to check my c-t-c groupings to decide whether not the rifle is staying.

     

    I've been running H&N Barracudas, AA Field, Daystate Li's and even tried the smk graphites,

     

    I'll be using the AA's depending on groupings. If I have sorted the problem I'll reprofile the end of the silencer.

    had a few cycles tonight and i think i may have solved the problem.

     

    c-t-c off the bipod and it at 13mm at 25yds, a bit of range time and maybe a few different types of pellets and I could tighten it up and push the range to 35yds
