Hatsan USA Multi-CaliberPCP Rifle: The Hydra

Yet another innovation from the Hatsan factory is the Hydra QE. It features their patented Versi-Cal Technology interchangeable caliber system that allows one to trade calibers with a single thumbscrew. The VCT system couples a caliber-specific receiver and barrel into a single interchangeable module that enables the scope to remain mounted and zeroed in with each caliber used. A knurled screw located at the rear of the receiver locks the upper module onto the lower receiver, allowing caliber changes in just a few seconds. The Hydra QE utilizes Hatsan’s S/Roto-Index magazine system – a caliber specific self-indexing rotary magazine made from a lightweight-yet-durable synthetic polymer. Each module features Hatsan’s QuietEnergy shrouded barrel that reduces downrange noise by up to 50%.

Fine Turkish walnut stock is laser engraved with ample texturing on critical grip surfaces that enhance the feel and control of the rifle. A Monte Carlo style cheek rest rises to just the right height for use with scopes. The rubber butt pad is both elevation and fit angle adjustable for a custom fit for each shooter. A fixed 165cc air cylinder fills to 2900 PSI, and it can provide up to 35 powerful shots. Weighing in at just 6.8 lb, this modular platform airgun will be easy to carry and shoot. The Hatsan Hydra is available in .177, .22, or .25 caliber – with additional barrel/receiver modules available separately.

MSRP: Starting at $449.99
