Hatsan USA, manufacturer and importer of air rifles for small game hunters and entry-level competition shooters alike, is announcing the addition of a new “tactical”-style AT44-10 TACT air rifle.
The AT44-10 TACT is a pre-charged pnuematic (PCP) rifle capable of pushing lead pellets at speeds up to 1070 feet per second at the muzzle and is chambered for .177-, .22- or .25-caliber pellets. This is not a Red Ryder. Because of its power Hatsan recommends against the use of alloy pellets as they can easily be damaged by the AT44-10 TACT, resulting in less efficient and accurate shooting.
The rifle sports an adjustable, removable 6-position buttstock, overmolded pistol grip and triple-railed handguard with Picatinny segments up front at three-, six- and nine-o’clock for lights, lasers, grips and other tactical accessories — the sorts of things you’d expect from a modern centerfire rifle. And of course the receiver is grooved for use with optics.
