Unlike our competitors, Hatsan Vortex Gas Pistons technology is developed and manufactured by Hatsan to be specifically used in most Hatsan Break Barrel and Under Lever airguns.

Hatsan Vortex Gas Pistons utilize regular air instead of any other type of gas.

Hatsan offers 6 different types of Hatsan Vortex Gas Pistons – encompassing the majority of Hatsan’s line of Break Barrel and Underlever spring action guns.  The following models are offered:

Type 1: Mod 55-60-70-75-80-85-90

Type 1-B: Mod 88-95-99

Type 2: Mod125-125TH-125 Sniper-135 -Torpedo 150-150TH-155

Type 3: Striker 1000S-1000X-Edge

Type 4: Dominator under lever series

Type 5: Torpedo 100X-105X under lever series

Type 6: Mod25 SuperCharger / SuperTact

Benefits of Gas Piston Airguns

  • Gas piston powered airguns can remain cocked for long periods of time without causing any spring stress or damage to the gun.
  • Gas piston powered airguns produce more steady and consistent power between consecutive shots versus spring powered airguns.
  • Gas Piston powered airguns eliminate most of the vibration caused by the oscillation of the heavy springs used in spring powered airguns.  Gas Piston models oscillate much less and finish the action cycle in less time than spring powered models making for a more comfortable confident shooting experience.
  • Gas piston powered airguns’ lifecycle is significantly greater than its spring action counterparts.  There is no risk of spring fatigue or spring breakage.  Fewer moving parts result in a much more efficient and reliable operating system.
  • Gas piston powered airguns provide higher, consistent velocities over their lifetime when compared to spring action models.  Springs get weaker over time causing decreases in velocity.
  • Gas piston powered airguns provide a much smoother and quieter shooting experience than their spring action counterparts.  With gas powered models, the cocking action is much smoother.  Also, spring grinding noises are eliminated during the cocking and firing sequence.
  • More steady and consistent power between consecutive shots.
  • Eliminates most vibration caused by oscillation of heavy springs.
  • Much smoother and quieter shooting experience.
