HatsanUSA Showcases the Mod 65 Break Barrel Air Rifle

HatsanUSA is excited to announce the latest addition to their extensive break barrel lineup with the Mod 65. Housed in a nicely grained Turkish walnut thumbhole-style stock, it is available in .177, .22 and .25 calibers. The Mod 65 is the only Hatsan air rifle with a wood pistol grip stock. The aggressive engraved texturing on the pistol grip and forearm provides a positive gripping surface for more control. Additionally, the Mod 65 is built with a ventilated rubber butt pad with an attractive white spacer and a black synthetic adjustable Monte Carlo-style cheek rest. The blued-steel receiver offers 11mm dovetail slots, 6.75-inches long, with a metal scope stop provided. The 14.5-inch rifled steel barrel is shrouded in polymer and capped with a permanently integrated sound moderator. This system is known as QuietEnergy (QE) technology and is very effective at reducing the report of the air rifle. The micro-adjustable rear sight is a square notch with green fiber optic that is adjustable for windage and elevation, the front of the barrel incorporates a fixed red fiber optic sight.

Other features of the Mod 65 include: a two-stage Quattro match trigger with metal trigger blade is adjustable for length of pull and pull weight; the Shock Absorber System (SAS) to increase accuracy potential by reducing the vibration inherent in a spring-powered airgun; and an automatic safety that engages upon breaking open the barrel and prevents the safety from being taken off while the barrel is open. This anti-bear trap feature prevents damage to the rifle and the shooter should the trigger be accidentally pulled while loading.

The Mod 65 is a powerful, lightweight, and attractive rifle ready-to-go-out-of-the-box for use as a fun plinker or for target practice. Able to launch a lead .177 caliber pellet at up to 1100 feet-per-second and develop around 21 foot-pounds of energy, the power of Mod 65 also lends itself to be an effective small game/pest hunting tool by attaching the included 3-9x32mm Optima scope and rings that come in this combination kit. The Mod 65 Combo Kit offers a lot of airgunning value for an MSRP of: $219.99.
