i fancied a little project gun so i treated my self to a hatsan 60s so i went to the shop and paid £100 for it from walkers in wisbech the gun its self aint bad but i thought lets have a little look in side when i pulled it apart which is very simple to do there wasnt and lube in side completely dry except for on the front edge of the piston seal so quick clean up and fiddle about with the polish and some wet and dry and a few bits i had layin around i now have a gun that i think is a right little cracker for the money i paid i love it at 25meters im all shots in a inch and its still settlin in and its only gettin better the noise is low but need to get a can for it at some point but i am very pleased and am lookin forward to gettin it run in and all sorted few more bits to go but worth a look if you on a limited budget and got a little bit of time and energy to give it a little sweeten you wont go far wrong and the quattro trigger aint bad at all might even have to get the 55s to go with it now
well been playin with the hatsan for a month now and cant fault it fair enough its no supergun beater but its great fun and the more i use it the more i like it i can bash it about and not cry about how much it cost and as for accuracy it dont do to bad at all but then again its me behind it so could do better but all in all great fun now just need some more to play with
I've been toying with getting one of these myself. I bought an XS19 recently & I'm dead chuffed with that (especially with the deal I got) but I've always been curious about the Hatsan rifles. I've heard many good things about the mod 60s & Gun Mart did a very enlightening review on the new ones and it may be worth looking at. According to my local RFD, they are very popular! You got a good deal there mate.

oh i got a great deal ive got a hw95 and the hatsan gets shot alot more it just needs a bit of love but its so easy to use and love that i can out shoot my friends with the £400 combos and ive only spent £150 including the scope i gotta get the 177 now might even try a striker too
well me project has progressed barrels now a whoppin 9.5 inches and is neatly finished with a venow silencer [thanks eddie from walkers wisbech ] put a bsa 4x32 mildot on it and got a delrin top hat made and am lovin it even more inch groups at 35m and so much fun and still under £200 even got some pics to put on here of my favorite little gun
I had one of these little crackers. Now what you do not know is that you can buy a very expensive version of this gun, with a much worse safety catch (fiddly little thing on the left hand side, not a decent push button at the rear like the 60S), same stock, same barrel, same spring, same trigger, different name and pay £240, the name of the white elephant, a Webley Stingray Mark 2!!! Oh yes, that is a very expensive 60S, it is no different, no more accurate!
So basically you have got a half price Stingray, think it is a cheap gun now folks? At one point I owned a 60S in .22 and a Stingray 2 in .177, I was mad the day I bough the Stingray, they are identical, apart from the crappy safety on the Webley. Tennis elbow meant I found reloading painful, so both were sold and the money put to a pcp and charging gear, which one, the Turkish version of the Webley Raider 10 shot, the Hatsan AT44, a blinding little gun, still available with wooden stocks for under £300!
I had no problems with my Hatsans, the wife had a 60S and she had no problems with hers, they were sold when we went PCP, Hatsan are a quality make now. Try one, you could be very surprised!
My first 'proper' rifle was the 55s (the .177) I was overjoyed by it. A year later, it was making a thudding/twanging sound that varied after each shot and was most unnerving. I shot a friends 60s and it was just as rough and ready. Still, for what I paid I was exceptionally pleased. It wasn't a hunter, but it was a damn powerful, fun and accurate plinking gun.
next prodject is gonna be a .25 most probably a hatsan striker cos im lovin these cheap guns will make a great rat gun this 60s is now so much fun and i just cant put it down so much more used than my hw95
chopped the barrell a bit more and have found the accuracy and the power have really improved this gun is my project but now its turning into my main gun really fun well worth doin its doing 11.1ftlb with rws superdomes and sub inch groups at 30 meters tuning kit comin soon for it to so i can get it even smoother
BSA Challenger Lightning XL .25 SFS/Welsh Willy tuned ~ Diana 280k .177 Bigtoe tuned ~ Air Arms Prosport .177 Welsh Willy tuned ~ Beretta A303 & Lanbar O/U 12G shotty's
its just under 8 inch now so its ultra short but seems to love it and for a 100 cant go wrong if you send me your email will send you some pics
I have the 55s and it is a great gun for the price.
I have had mine tuned by the airgun doctor and is putting out 11.4 ft/lbs and is turning out to be a lovely little rifle.
yeah ive tuned 3 now for friends and that everybody who uses them realy seems to like them and when you consider the cost there a great way into shooting i want the .25 and .177 now to have a play with to see what i can do with those but it has really changed my views on cheaper guns
id recommend a .22 hatsan striker for the general workhouse and extremely hardy pest control rifle.
Can also get a 2cm grouping at 25metres, not too shabby!
