The rifle arrived today in a plain brown box.
Inside was the manufacturers box.
First impressions out of the box (and sealed plastic bag).... a quality weapon.
Shoots strong and accurate.
Nice red/green sights.
Scope is ok, but I am not qualified to rate it
Bit of a pain to mount.
Main reason for this brief review is to provide some photos of this quality air rifle.
I will update after shooting some rounds through it.
I originally ordered some bog standard .177 hollow point pellets to use with this rifle.
But this was not the right choice. These pellets are way to light for this rifle and clearly went supersonic (faster than 1100 fps).
The loud "crack" when I fired was the tell tail sign.
Since then I ordered and received some Haendler & Natermann Baracuda Match .177-Calibre, 10.65 Grains Round Nose Pellets.
A much better choice for this rifle, especially in a semi -urban setting :-)
I am still a novice, but from my research, pellets above the speed of sound are not a good thing.
I also upgraded the optics. The scope received with the rifle is serviceable, but I was lured to an optic with better features.
This is what I went with; UTG 1-Inch 3-9X40 AO True Hunter IE Scope with Zero Locking/Reset WE, Rings and Lens Cover
Super clear optic with a nice feature set.
Those features included a decent trigger, good build quality, honest velocity figures, good open sights, and accuracy. Furthermore, it had to come in at under $150. Needless to say, this was not an easy search. Some had parts of what I was looking for, but none had everything. Then I stumbled upon the Hatsan 95.
Everybody knows about the walnut stock and the German steel barrel. And, as mentioned elsewhere, this is virtually unheard of in a rifle in this price range. While I truly appreciated this it was the very fine accuracy mated to the true velocity figure and open sights that have won me over so.
My only beef, would be the lack of a sling. This is not a light rifle, over eight pounds, and quite probably would become a burden if tramping through the woods hunting all day.
I do not use a scope, therefore it was important to me that the open sights gave you a true, accurate picture. This does. Long range shooting with the included Optima scope would be adequate, from what I understand, but most would want to upgrade to a Leapers or some other high quality optics. I seldom shoot at targets beyond 40 yards, and I find that scopes add weight and make the rifle more difficult to carry, especially without a sling.
Have heard about the noise it creates. Honestly, to these old ears it does not make appreciably more noise than any other powerful air rifle. Also, I did not perceive any greater recoil than a .177, which is minimal by my standards.
Have used Crosman pellets, four different versions. All seem to perform well in this gun. Perhaps in due time I will do a bit more experimenting with other brands, but for now these will do just fine, and they don't cost you an arm and a leg.
The 95 is not easy to cock. Definitely not for children. I have always used the "across the knee" method and it works fine here, too.
The safety is another thing that I like. Many airguns have a safety lever mounted within the trigger guard. The Hatsan has its right behind the barrel. It engages automatically and a simple push forward disengages it. Simple, and out of the way of the trigger.
In short, I am quite happy with this rifle. Perhaps one day I will get it in either the .177 or .25 model. It is a most difficult gun to beat within its price range. I will take it a bit farther and say that it would be a top gun in the $200 range, particularly when other makes at this price point still come with less than ideal triggers. No need to swap triggers on the Hatsan. You can spend more, but you won't get more. Yeah, I give it an easy five stars. Thank you. LP
Before firing, I cleaned the barrel with some (3-4) dry patches. There was quite a bit of black oil/packaging material inside. I highly recommend doing this.
I zeroed the open sights first before mounting the scope. It only took two groups of 6 x pellets to get all shots into a penny-sized hole at 20 feet. This gun is very accurate.
After mounting the sufficient, but not extraordinary, scope I could keep a dime-sized group on the bulls eye at 30 feet. This gun is a nail driver. You won't be disappointed.
It's louder than I expected, but I haven't heard a word from the neighbors...yet.
I use Crossman Premier Hollow points at 7.4gr - an accurate and inexpensive pellet.
If you're looking for quality beyond the price, get this gun. Enjoy.
