I must have got a good Hatsan I have had no trouble out of it . I have not heard any bad thing about the guns made by Hatsan in the last few years they must have changed things there . I think they are making some good pcp’s and gas ram guns also .They must have stepped up there game because now Its the most gun you can get for your money ,so maybe your talking about guns made by them more than 5 years ago or so .
I think I use to shoot the Feinwerkbau 300 on the shooting team back in the mid 80’s at my college . We used it for 10 meter shooting . I think it was shooting at 500 or so fps just enough power to get it to 10 meters accurately so its good for inside or outside close range shooting , I don’t think it even has enough power to knock over a field target so your kind of limited to its use.,and definitely not any good for any kind of small game ,maybe a snake or rat but thats about it . That’s why I was telling him to get a gun around 1,000 fps in .177 ,fixed barrel type air rifle so it could be used for hunting , target practice a maybe even field target . I should have read the next page before I commented I didn’t see where he got a gun already . But no doubt for 10 meter shooting the 300 is a great gun and I have always wanted one .
