I just got back from a few days in Texas where I had the opportunity get in a few days of rabbit hunting with a rifle I’d first seen at the SHOT Show last January…. the Hatsan Vectis. When I first saw it, I thought the appearance a bit odd: it was a lever action gun with an otherwise tactical look. But the more I looked at it I started to think it was weird enough to be cool. When I picked it up, felt it on the shoulder, and cycles the action, I wanted to get some field time with it.
I covered some miles with the Vectis in .25 and had the chance to take down some big desert jackrabbits at distances out to 75 yard, and also to do fast close range shooting on cottontail. The Vectis hits hard, is accurate, has a high shot count and cycles very quickly. This is a rifle I have a lot of fun shooting and will post the video of the hunt soon, stay tuned!
