First Look at the New Hatsan Air Rifles

We were able to get a first look at the new Hatsan Air Rifles while at the 2016 SHOT Show.  Although they offered numerous new options, we focused on two rifles that we felt would be excellent for varmint hunting.  While both of these rifles are PCP, and use basically the same actions that have become synonymous with the Hatsan PCP air rifles, that is where the comparisons end.  The two rifles we focused on hit both ends of the air rifle spectrum, traditional and bullpup.  The Nova has a Turkish walnut wood stock, and is fed air by a 500cc air bottle in front of the receiver of the rifle.  Opposite of the Nova, is Hatsan’s new BullBoss, bullpup style PCP air rifle.  This rifle is based on their very popular AT44 rifle, so everything that is familiar to people who have one of these rifles, is packaged nicely in a bullpup design.  The BullBoss sports a polymer stock, and shaves a full 12″ off the over-all length of the Nova, but still keeps the same barrel length (23″).  The full specs on each rifle are below the video from the show, where we asked Jesse from Hatsan USA to discuss the two rifles.
