Hatsan produces tough, affordable airguns – and its three-stage pump follows in the same vein. It’s no lightweight, but will therefore withstand the knocks and bumps of serious use. The base unit fits to a 220mm footplate via a thick cross-pin.
The set-up includes a super-chunky and exceptionally long, 520mm hose, built-in moisture trap and particle filter, and tough rubber grips. A nice touch is that one of the hollow grips has a screw-out cap, so you can use the tube for storage – you could fit most filling adapters in there. The pressure gauge is comparatively small, but clearly marked and easy enough to read. There’s also a very basic – yet effective – locking tab at the base of the strut to keep the pump locked down when carrying.
The Hatsan is a solid performer that should stand up to the rigours of prolonged use.
