New hatsan escort

Recommended Posts

Thinking of getting one for round the farm. I know the early ones got a bad reputation but what are the new ones like for reliability and such? The 3 year warranty appeals.

 

Thanks.

I’ve had one for about five years and has never been a problem , I love it , it’s the synthetic out in all weathers , great hide gun for pigeons not cartridge fussy have used 28 30 and 32 g no problem , I do clean it after most outings , only issue I ever had was there’s a button on earlier ones for mag shut off so you can pull the action back to unload chamber and it won’t cycle another that stopped working but never use it , for the price and warranty you won’t go wrong

Swallowed my pride and bought a synthetic stock version earlier this year and it's been faultless. Adjustable for cast and drop, full set of chokes, 3 year warranty, it's not cartridge fussy at all, the internals seem well made although if you put it alongside the likes of Browning you can see the difference but at less than half the price what's not to like. It's certainly not a pretty thing (stands out like a boxer dog's sphericals in cabinet full of side by sides!!!) but as a foul weather/marsh gun you can't go too far wrong.

I got one and I got to admit I love it prefers 70mm catridges to 65mm or itll jam up if loaded with 3 shots  but other than that its good

Try a Armsan A612 too. About the same price but better trigger and copied a Beretta design with a few changes.

Sounds like most semi autos.
