1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

hatsan at44-10?

    Anybody had any experience using the hatsan at44-10? My mate is thinking of getting one as his first PcP air rifle, as it is cheap and seems to look very decent, obviously there are other choices like the s200 and the raider but would this do the trick?

    Cheers
    Isaac

    I recently sold mine for no other reason than I already have other full length multi-shot PCPs so it was effectively a duplicate platform.

    Mine grouped extremely well, was very quiet with a moderator fitted, gave 60 very good shots with another ten or so that you could use, and the adjustable butt pad allowed very good fit and eye alignment to the gun.

    Mine ran Air Arms Field pellets at the best overall combination of power, consistency and accuracy. JSB Exact were marginally more accurate (we're talking a couple of mm) but came out with far lower power than the AAF.

    Superdomes did brilliantly out to maybe 35 yards, after which they drop like a stone compared to the AAF and JSB Exact. If long range is important you might want to consider that but, if it isn't, you can reduce your running costs by feeding the gun Superdomes.

    The only thing I had to do to mine was lightly sand a couple of the pellet ports in both magazines. Take the magazine o-ring off, lay the mag flat on a worktop and load with pellets. Lift up the mag and the pellets should be left on the worktop. Any that aren't and are 'grabbed' by the magazine indicate swarf or a slightly tighter port. I ran a few swipes of 400 grit wet and dry through two ports on each mag and that was that.

    Trigger is nice and very adjustable, automatic safety is a great safety feature but it can be a bit obnoxious if you hunt a lot.

    This is what mine did one afternoon last June (link rather than embedded image, due to forum rules about dead things ;) ): http://i947.photobucket.com/albums/ad319/SysadminX/hatsan-59_zps0605be03.jpg

    I have more expensive guns but the Hatsan kept pace with them in terms of how accurately it could group and it put supper on the table like a champ.

    I really liked mine and if I hadn't got other full-length PCPs I wouldn't have sold it.

    Well it certainly looks that it did well for you, he is on quite a tight budget but I spotted this gun online with a scope fitted for 349 quid, which I thought was a good price, he will be looking for other rifles with in this price range but this looks quite promising

    He is convinced he wants a pcp after watching me with my s200, although I have told him that high end spring rifles like the hw97k can out perform some of the best pcp rifles out there, but it seems that he is set on a pcp!

    Thanks for the info

    I had one, only reason I got rid of it was the fact that the wife did not like the Daystate X2 she bought herself (swapped the AT for the X2).

    Nice trigger, groups well, no faults at all on mine. Mine was a .177, never did more than about 50 shots at a time with it before topping it up!
    Lovely walnut stock, a lot of gun for your money!

    Keep an open mind - by and large you will get brand snobs who may never have even shot one saying things like "OK for the money" or "wouldn't touch one with..." :rolleyes:

    Over the last two years I've bought 2 SMK springers and 2 Hatsan guns (one springer and one PCP) simply because I couldn't/didn't believe the internet gossip. All four guns were good to begin with and, where the springers were concerned, they all tuned up into seriously nice guns. Without exception they could keep pace with my other, big name guns.

    My AT44-10 only needed the 2 pellets ports on the mags sorted but the gun itself was and still it sound - its new owner reports great success with it :)

    As Mr Mole says, they are a lot of gun for the money.

    Hatsan are now beginning to get the reputation they deserve. There was a recent thread on here about how good the 55 and 60 rifles are!

    I too have a few Hatsans an at44 repeater in .22 (a single shot .177 on the way) and a BT65 in .25 repeater, all together the three were less than a Daystate Huntsman here in Canada. The AT44 .22 can get clover leaf groups out to 60 yards. Hit 1 inch spinners at 65-70 yards time after time. Maybe not as pretty as some other brands but not terrible. You do have quite a selection in stock choices though http://www.hatsan.com.tr/en_at44_10.html . I have a camo version BT65, a synthetic majic wood .22 and on order a Turkish Walnut .177. If your lucky you may be able to view the store's selection of rifles and find a nice stock Hatsan001.jpg This is one is from the web that a fellow refinished.
