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 .
