Good evening ladies and gents.
Just want to find out if the Hatsan Galatian 0.177 a good air rifle to go with or to stay away? I am still a newbie and looking for a decent rifle to start with.
Please help a newbie out.
Hello and welcome.
First off , don't be in a hurry to buy an air rifle , take your time to look at the many options that are available , they come in all price ranges.
Kuber's advice is good , take it.
Also don't be influenced by the "POWA" beastie , very , very few powerful air rifles are also accurate.
Then there is the choice of Springer versus PCP.
Have fun deciding.

Follow the advice of the good forum peeps and take your time looking feeling before you buy and don't let your ears out to them 'powa' mongers, a gazillion feet per second air rifle is useless if it can't put pullets where you want them..
Mine was set to shoot 18grain JSB's at 850fps. Gave many more shots per fill, was consistent and a laser gun hopefully you can get a chrono to test yours, but heavy pellets to knock the velocity down are not automatically gonna make it accurate with them unfortunately - if it's spraying those despite an apparently good velocity, don't assume there is something wrong with the barrel odds are, like many guns, it just doesn't like those monster pellets.
If that's the case, get Kevin or Nick or Jaco etc to give it some TLC and you'll be amazed at the very different, epic gun you get back
