Not just powerful, this gun is accurate, consistent, high shot count, ergonomic and has a fast action! Jim Chapman Hello all, I’ve just returned home from the SHOT Show, and leave tomorrow for a week in Europe. I wanted to drop a quick note on the status of the Hatsan Piledriver before departing. My production gun arrived a couple days before I left for Las Vegas so I haven’t been able to start shooting and testing it but will do so on my return home. Some news from the SHOT Show, the first production run of the Piledriver .457 has arrived in the USA and will be used to fulfill current orders and ship to primary dealers. So, I’d expect to see guns in shooters hands soon. The .50 production run is in progress with first shipment expected before end of March. I believe Pyramyd Airguns will be the first to have them at listed price of $1179.00. A couple things I’d not mentioned in that first video: the Piledriver uses the 2-stage adjustable Quattro trigger. Onboard air storage is a 480cc carbon fiber tank that fills to 300 BAR. Though the barrel is 33″ in length, the bullpup design allows for a more compact LOA. This configuration sets the action back into the stock and keeps most of the weight centered which I’ve found great for offhand shooting. The black polymer stock is a fully adjustable thumbhole design. This rifle received a lot of attention at the show, andRead More →

The Hatsan Piledriver .457 PCP Air Rifle is putting out over 700 fpe, and over 800 fps in .50! About 2 months ago I had a call from Hatsan USA asking if I’d like to try out their new big bore airgun. As we talked it came out that this gun could generate over 700 fpe and had been set up to shoot a 525 grain slug. Of course I wanted to use it, and as it happened I was just getting ready to leave for a multi-day hunt in Texas. The rifle was expedited and I arrived the morning of my departure, my only concern was they only had a small number of bullets to ship with it, and I was pressed for time to order more. As it turned out more arrived, unfortunately they made it to me just before I left to return home….. this limited my range time, and then I needed to return the gun. Hope to have another go with it soon! At any rate, I took my deer and javalina while hunting down in Texas at the Huckaby Ranch, home of Lone Star Trails Outfitters. Trent (the owner) has become a good friend over the last few years, and has a great property loaded with game. He has high fence, but all my hunting was in outside of this and it has some great deer, javalina, and feral goat populations! I’ll be setting up a javalina hunt there in March 2020. so keepRead More →
