whocare9999: i got this from academy for 497.$ after tax u got lucky lol......But yes it
is a great and beautiful gun.
Tony I: Hatsan makes a mag extension specifically for this shotgun. It should be
available from any hatsan retailer.
aaron042671: Adjust the front with Allen key
MrEslender: Just got this shotty this friday! IT's my first gun. Can't wait to fire it.
Only 2 minuses for me are the muzzle brake was too much for me so i removed
it and put the simple ring...and the fixed choke is the other thing.....but
eh no big deal.
RJtoon1: yup on the first day I had it I got the 2 fowl plug out, for that I didnt
need to remove the spring retainer. There are 2 small holes in the
retainer, so is there a special tool involved?
RJtoon1: oh man, I wish I knew that before! Thanks I'll give it a try
RJtoon1: just at a small local Sporting goods store, I don't think they have a
website. No chokes as it is an Improved Cylinder Bore fixed barrel. It
likes all ammo so far, but with 3in 00 Buckshot Magnums by Federal I can
keep 8/15 pellets on target at 50 yards
RJtoon1: hmm ok. I want to really lower the front sight because I had to raise e
rear ghost ring so much
Milo Best Dog: my Hatsan Escort MP I bought it at 280 € so as to you about $ 365 in the
U.S. ^ ^
RJtoon1: same thing as far as I know Talha. I am not sure but I think Optima is for
Canada and Escorts seem to be moreso in the USA
Mandingo391: 18 inch O ring
Apex831: The plug comes off just like that on a Remington, it's a 1/4 turn and the
spring pops out, remove the migratory fowl plug and u can extend the tube.
But I wouldn't , I put red dot sights on mine with a flash/strobe laser
combo on bottom rail. Ordered the collapsible butt stock from ATI, still
waiting. It's not like a bennelli by the way, more like a Remington or a
roland gauthier: You can raise the front sight up or down there is a Allen key Adjustment
Second screw from the front.
Philsgoodnow: Hi nice review. I am ordering the MP-A. The Hatsan is a quality product. I
too see Benelli all over the pump and the semi. BTW if you lower your front
sight you can raise the point of impact. If you want to do this you'll have
to start by lowering your rear sight to a more protected position. Then
start over remembering it works like this. Front sight adjustments are
opposite the point of impact
RJtoon1: thanks Eric. How are your ghost ring sites? I put a red dot electro sight,
John Conroy: I got the same gun and had the same problem with slugs hitting low. The
screw for the rear is an M3 so I picked up a longer one at the hardware
store. Now that I know the front sight is adjustable I'll try that to keep
the stock rear screw. Also ordered a Pachmayr pad to make it shoot even
RJtoon1: hmm thanks dude. I think I'll not mess with it for now maybe
RJtoon1: I did experience 2 shots where the shell "swelled" after firing and it was
hell to get them out. I couldn't even rack the pump back, so the barrel had
to come off. Bad shells I assume
RJtoon1: Thanks Phil. Not sure if my other comment made it. I'm not sure how the
front sight adjusts but I'll take a better look soon. I'm thinking of just
putting a Barska 42 MM red dot scope on it and that might be the end of it.
What would you recommend?
toddpotochny: U can remove the inner mag tube plug w a pair of ring pliers that u can get
at any auto parts store. Be aware that the follower spring behind it is
going to want to fly out though. I put a towel over my pliers hand and hold
that down w my free hand when I do this. U can also remove the 3-shot limit
plug while you've got that cap out if your gun came with 1 installed.
Hatsans a great gun- esp for the money. Terrible stock though. Cheers !
Akis Pat: I ll def buy one!
roland gauthier: Screw it down for up.
s2000ron: 360$ where did you get it what is the web site, and its accurate? does it
comes with diff. chokes, what the best ammo for it thanks i ask you these
question bcaus cant find alot info
Apex831: I paid $499 here in Cali at Big 5, they can't keep it on the shelves here.
Mines the semiauto version. Shoot well, 2.5"-3.5" shells no issues mixed
up. Only shot gun I've shot that did that without having to swap out
chokes, it's cylinder bore so chokes not required.
Eric Flores: I got one and I like it. Looks cool
RJtoon1: I'm going to order a Barska Red Dot, but not the electro open glass sight,
the round model instead, the 30 MM model
Mandingo391: I was told a remmington 870 extension would work 18 O with a lil cutting on
the spring for the 7th rd to fit, I was told this works by other who have
done it. Hope this helps:-))
RJtoon1: @MrEslender I love the flash supressor it makes it look like the cannon it
is at the range. You won'T find chokes on these fighting shotguns as they
are made with slugs and buckshot in mind. Check the newer review vid for
something interesting that happened (the Barska Red Dot one)
