Multi-caliber PCP rifle from HatsanUSA: the Hydra QE

Yet another innovation from the Hatsan factory is their Hydra QE multi-caliber PCP air rifle. It features their patented Versi-Cal Technology interchangeable caliber system that allows the shooter to interchange calibers with a single thumbscrew. The VCT system couples a caliber-specific receiver and barrel into a single interchangeable module that allows the scope to remain mounted and zeroed with each caliber used. A thumb screw located at the rear of the receiver locks the upper module to the lower receiver, allowing gauge changes in just seconds. Each module features Hatsan’s QuietEnergy wrapped barrel with integrated sound moderator, which reduces downcome noise by up to 50%. Hydra QE also features Hatsan’s fully adjustable 2-stage Quattro trigger.

Constructed of a fine, laser-etched Turkish Walnut stock with extensive texture on critical gripping surfaces that enhance feel and control of the rifle. A Monte Carlo-style headrest is raised to just the right height for use with scopes. The rubber butt plate is adjustable in height and angle of adjustment for a custom fit for each shooter. The Hydra QE uses Hatsan’s S/Roto-Index magazine system, a caliber-specific, self-indexing rotary magazine made from a durable, lightweight synthetic polymer. A 165cc fixed air cylinder fills at 2900 PSI and can deliver up to 35 powerful shots. This modular platform airgun is easy to carry and shoot, and weighs just 6.8 lbs. The Hatsan Hydra QE is available in .177, .22, or .25 calibers, with additional barrel/receiver modules available separately.
