dullard69: Hey Shootem, So you initially purchased a spring driven 125 then later
converted it to Crosman's Nitro Piston? Had you considered Hatsan's Vortex
before making your purchase of the spring powered model? It really would be
great to get chrony results from your rig since it's possibly different
from the Vortex system. Also, other than the Crow Mags did you see major
tumbling issues with any of the other pellets? I'm about to pick up a
Vortex 125 in .25 myself. Good shooting to ya!
Scott Hildenbrand: So what are your thoughts on it now? Any other .25 Nitro/Gas in the top of
your mind that you'd rather have got instead?
type1Civilization: Have been watching reviews of this rifle and I think I know now I will get
one. (the largest caliber)
PrivateerGWX: Nice vid. I've had the 125 Sniper .25 for a year now. It also is the Nitro
Piston conversion by PA. With the scope that came with it I shoot Beer
bottles at 70 yards.
I take the neck off first then the body. JSB's and H&N's are it's favorite
I've put a better piston seal in it and polished the trigger parts for a
much better Gun.
I've plans to change the Scope to a 4X16 if I can quit buying other AG's!
carl ault: The Quality is noticeable. And the accuracy too... I have 2 .25 and a
couple .22 I highly recommend these air rifles. The pistol is awesome.
supercharged. built well handles well.. not a toy at all. Gave my Gamos to
rerere.moreno Moreno: hello friend'm from Brazil and I want to get a Hatsan 125 sniper scope,
only here does not sell, help me buy one there for me to know that this is
where cheap. help me please .... Love shoot. email@example.com
XortiXz: Do you think this air rifle could take down a hog? Maybe if you shot it in
a weak spot?
Sportman-un: Hatsan has very nice and good airrifles.Had several breakbarrels & pcp's.
But why didn't you bought the 125 sniper vortex? It is already fitted with
Nice rifle and video by the way.
DIOSpeedDemon: I don't know a thing about air rifles, but I DO NO WAT I LIKE!! nice gun
great video RH DSD
deniz sönmez: Made in TURKİYE ! so .., just buy it :)
lucas silva: velocity ?¡
Adam Renwald: Hi' i just got this gun in the other day' put about 120 shots in it' than i
noticed that when i try and rooster the barrel back' that right when its
supposed to click or latch' it doesnt want to and the barrel just springs
right back' than if i slam it back really hard than it will catch and hold'
but it wasnt like this at first' in the beginning it would just easilly
latch when roostering the barrel back' and also theres 3 pins at the back of
the gun right above the trigger and below the scope on the main frame' and
the very forward pin just slides out' have u ever witnessed these problems?
Do u suggest something is wrong and that i should take it back for repair?
Hope u can get back" thanks.
RENRICK LALLOO: my hatsan 125 vortex .22 gas ram failed i was struggling to get 748-800fps
with a 15.43grain pellet while my friend 125 sniper (spring version) was
gettin 932-950fps with the same 15.43grain pellet…they uses the crosman
nitro piston gas ram that was made in China..im going back to the orginal
spring and learn to deal with the extra recoil and heavy roostering effort
Tristen Naquin: i wouldnt mind having one of those to get rid of some rabbits and squirrels
on our property. the benjamin titan .22 isnt getting the job done like i
want it too. too much movement after it is shot, and often the rabbit ends
up spazzing itself deep into the brush where i cant find it after reloading
a second shot. maybe a .25 cal with 25+ foot pounds of energy would do the
trick better than a .22 with 12 foot pounds.
Gary West: Is that the Crosman Nitro Piston or the Vortex that you reviewed
krazor8: wow.. 9x magnification if more than enough... anything over that is better
used on a real gun
Elmer Angeles: Hi, Any tips on cleaning the barrel on the Hatsan 125 Sniper? Just bought
mine of Pyramyd Air and I haven't cleaned it yet, but I'm worried that the
large muzzlebrake may snag some of the cleaning pellets or patches.
shootemfulloholes: there are good videos that show u how to properly do this, i learned from
them!!!! but for the love of rifle do not use those cleaning pellets!!!!
hey and congrats on your rifle i hope u love it as much as i love mine and
if you have any more questions please ask i will help in any way i can and
thanks for watching.
shootemfulloholes: Sorry, after the video i have only put 100 pellets or so through and then
cleaned it,(not enough time in this world!!!) only yesterday did i take it
out again and fired 10 to get rid of any dieseling after the dry patch,
then took another 20 shots to check accuracy, to me it still performs the
same though its too early to tell. i hope u enjoy this rifle, i have shot
springers all my life and this one has been the most fun, just raw power
and simplicity of it make it fun.
shootemfulloholes: i don't know about the vertical case but the single scope rifle case works
with mine, fits just right.
Math J: what about Hatsan 125 in .22 caliber. Is it powerful than Diana 350 (.22
Elmer Angeles: Thanks, I'll take off the scope and try it at 20 yards as soon as I get
some heavier pellets. It never occurred to me that shooting lighter pellets
would cause the rifle to vibrate more. I've been using Air Arms Falcons
(13.43g) primarily to get the gun settled in, and I've shot some Predator
Polymags (16 g). (I'm saving the polymags for pesting later). I've got some
H&N Field Target Trophies (14.66 g) coming in later this week so I'll be
testing those too. Mine is a spring power plant.
shootemfulloholes: hahaha proof i can't believe everything that gets blogged!!! you got it
straight from the horses mouth!! Hey bud thank you for all the info and i
would really appreciate it if after you get the one you want, you let me
know what you think of it, have a good one bro.
shootemfulloholes: sorry u tube does not allow me to put a link in the comments. if you get
on walmarts web site, typw in rifle scopes, on the left there will be a
selection bar of the different brands, centerpoint , it is a 4-16 power
illuminated mil dot scope sells for $59 and is a best seller!! if you have
time let me know how it shoots the vortex uses air in the ram the one i
have uses nitrogen probably no difference what so ever!!!
shootemfulloholes: oil the gun well if it is a spring-gun according to the manual.shoot of a
flat table, resting the fore arm on a well folded blanket, sit on a chair,
relax and take your time, only 5 shot groups at 20y, check screws after
each group. after you find an accurate pellet mount the scope carefully
rings first then scope everything nicely snug not HULK SNUG! sight in scope
at 20y, check all screws, if things loosen up in normal shooting(ESPECIALLY
AFTER USING HEAVY PELLETS), then loctite the BITCH!!!
shootemfulloholes: Pinero there is a big difference between pro shooter and ethical hunter. i
have a few medals and a few certificates in national .22 rimfire Bisley
(prone) but i would not take a shot at 100 yards with any air rifle simply
because i am not target shooting i am hunting, I can fool squirrels good
enough to get well with in 50 yards of them. now if u can get a 2 inch
group at 100 yards out of this air rifle then u have a very accurate air
rifle at 50 yards making a 1 inch group good for hunting!!
Eric Deplata: Cool gun.
shootemfulloholes: THE MARAUDER.
whiff1962: My bad. Yeah, I did loose a wee bit of power myself. I do like what the NP
does, but loved the challenge and extra UMPH! of the heavy metal spring.
shootemfulloholes: multo abrigado amigo!! my spanish is perfect but my Portuguese is not very
good!!! Thank you again for watching.
DT5236: How much does it all cost including the Nitro piston kit. Best place to buy
lddtyrone: WHICH HAS THE LESS NOISE TH HATSAN 125 OR THE B MARAUDER
whiff1962: The Vortex priced out at over forty dollars more than the NP for my Hatsan
125, in .177 I think I might have been robbed a ftlb or so with the
conversion over to NP, but the gun is a totally new creature without the
twist and SPRONG! of the metal spring. Still, it was a beast of a rifle
with the metal spring and I might go back to it when my NP finally gives up
the ghost, years henceforth.
shootemfulloholes: i think it is worth going to nitro piston, the nitro is 30 fps slower but
50% smoother!!! and u will be able to keep it loaded for long periods of
time with no worries, also does not need oil like spring pistons.
shootemfulloholes: Hola, de lo que entiendo yo son iguales, la mia no es igual que los otros
en la forma que tiene un nitro piston de gas!! pero los rifles son bien
ThePokerClueless: Hatsan USA currently has remanufactured black model 125 spring piston
snipers in .25 caliber for $150, a savings of 42% over the price of a new
one. I believe the remanufactures are performed by Rick Eutsler of
AirGunWeb. I just got a remanufactured .25 caliber vortex piston version
for $215 but likely would have gotten the spring version if they had that
deal at the time.
whiff1962: Rick Eutsler clamis a fpe of over 31fllb with the metal spring version of
the .25 caliber (over 800fps with 21 plus grain). I believe that my Nitro
Piston coversion has taken away from my .177 power band. Have you chronied
to see if your .25 is spitting out at the purported velocities and power
shootemfulloholes: nope sorry! really did not feel like i needed to chrony it!!! though now
that you mention it i am curious also, its been very cloudy and raining for
the past two days so hopefully in the next couple of days ill have the info
for you(((no lights for the chrony so i need to do it out side!!!))) i love
the rifle but i don't want anyone spending money with out the right info.
so hang on a bit, thanks.
shootemfulloholes: Ok. sunny day today so got the stuff out and this is what the numbers are,
the chrony is set at 4 feet from muzzle using JSB diabolo exact kings
25.4g, three shot average of 682 fps. On Airgunweb average is 713 fps so in
my gun these pellets shoot 31 fps slower!( note there may be unknown
variables that play a role in the difference in speed!!) but all in all 31
fps is actually not much of a difference at all!! so 27 fpe give or take a
pound!!! still very worth it in my book!!!!
Robert Allen: does original spring comes with top hat and spring guide? or is it just the
PHdoner: Nice review! I just bought a hatsan 125 sniper but i have a question. Do
you have any tips to be more accurate on target shoting 25± yards btw i
have the spring version
shootemfulloholes: on the Hatsan the rings are medium the scope is 42 mm. would not use high
mount rings the cheek rest is already pretty high with medium rings but if
you have to because of the 50mm objective scope then u might get away with
it!!!! as for fitting in the rifle case i think it will be a very tight fit
shootemfulloholes: Hi. when it comes to cleaning pellets, please DO NOT USE them in any break
barrel rifle or spring/gas-spring rifle, these cleaning pellets do not have
enough back pressure to slow down the piston and will harm the integrity of
the gun.But i recommend cleaning your gun with a simple pull through
cleaning device made from fly fishing line or string wrapped in electrical
tape. in the front u can use a straw to get past the muzzle and push the
string in from muzzle to breech put on patch then pull!
shootemfulloholes: gee wiz that sounds like a ton of recoil, for it to loosen the cheek screw
is crazy!! mine is rock solid i have yet to find a screw loose which
actually surprises me!!. out of curiosity do you have a nitro- piston or
the original spring? BUT NO MATTER lets start from scratch. first take the
scope off including the rings leave only the scope base, check all rifle
screws to make sure they are snug, now use only the rifle sights,set up at
20 yards now this is where patience will pay off u may need
MrPederrough: With a 900 N at 190 bar nitro piston in this BB your sturdy stainless steel
cooking pot turns into a colander quicker than you can think "Holy sh.."
ruben sibuet: Hi ,i have one 125 sniper .25 but spring piston I think change to nitro
piston what do you think is big difference in fpe or fps? thanks
robert hoagland: You sold me on the idea of a gas piston rig.
shootemfulloholes: hi there, well there are a few things that can help but it all starts with
your setup. 1 does your scope have good magnification and an AO for
parallax and range finding? 2 is your rifle broken in? (about 500 pellets
+) 3 clean barrel after every 100 from new till you reach 500
shots(dieseling). Most important is pellet selection mine right now seem to
do much better with the Beeman silver bear in .25, jsb and polymags are ok,
also some rifles like different styles of hold, artillary or firm!!!
Joseph Gonzalez: For some weird reason, I can't copy/paste the link here...Just try visiting
'gatewaytoairguns' and do a search for 'Vortex gas ram'. Hopefully that
will do it.
whiff1962: The Benji XL 1500 is a bear of a rifle to master. It is quite heavy, and
you will need to master the artillery hold with it. The trigger is also a
challenge to master, as it pulls heavy. I would go with a Hatsan 125TH in
Nitro Piston and go without a scope, as the rifle has just as much power,
is lighter, and has a really excellent trigger. And, it is less expensive,
even with a NP upgrade.
