This gun comes with multiple calibers, with one of the most popular being the .177 and the .22 caliber rifles. These shoot at 100m/s and 800m/s respectively, which is impressive. The interesting break barrel design lets you load your pellets and also ensures that the safety is automatically turned on or off. I was looking for something that is good on the eye, and offers maximum safety, accuracy, ambidextrous design and affordability. I found this in the Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo, Walnut Stock air rifle. In this Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo Review, we will look at this air rifle’s features, product pros and cons and consumer FAQs.
Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo Review Features
Walnut Stock & Ambidextrous Design
I like to believe that most of the money paid for an air rifle is for the stock design. In this case, I believe it is worth it. The Turkish walnut stock with great grain gives this rifle a great look and feel when using it. In addition, the forearm and grip on the stock are checkered (not smooth like the rest of the barrel). This helps with having a firm grip on the gun when using it. In addition, the ambidextrous design means that both left and right handed people can use this rifle without any problem.
Front and Rear Fiber Optic Sights
The front of the gun has a red fiber optic sight that is placed on top of the muzzle break. This is also a great cocking assist when you want to load pellets into the barrel. The rear yellow fiber optic sight can be adjusted for elevation and windage. It comes with click adjustments and works great with the front sight. These fiber optic sights help the user shoot on target. The accuracy, however, is greatly assisted by the Optima scope that comes with the rifle.
Optima 3-9X32mm Scope
This is what gives this air rifle the shot accuracy needed. Already with the current scope, the Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo’s accuracy is mostly dead on and can be made even better with a different scope, should you so choose. The scope comes with double lens caps, 2 piece mount, click adjustment dial, fully coated optics and a hex wrench. All you need to do is place the mount and attach the scope to begin using it. These Truglo fiber optics have an 11mm dovetail.
Heavy & Sturdy Break Barrel Design
The feel, design and operation is quite easy. When the barrel is cocked and locked, the automatic safety is triggered. When the pellet is placed, use the other hand to close the barrel and then shoot. The back of the barrel has the automatic resettable safety lock which usually locks itself when being loaded. This is an interesting air rifle because it can shoot at 1000 meters per second with regular lead pellets for the .177 caliber and 800 meters per second for the .22 caliber. An additional design benefit to this rifle is the rubber butt pad that further assists with handling the gun.
Quattro Adjustable Trigger
The high power in this rifle means that there is more recoil. When you check the side of the Hatsan barrel, you will see the SAS logo. This means that it has a shock absorber system or recoil pad that allows the user to control this heavy and high powered rifle when in action. It actually reduces felt recoil. The adjustable trigger has 2 levels of adjustment that help determine the pull weight and travel length after shooting. The rifle mechanism is a traditional metal spring for easy use.

When looking for an air rifle, I was looking for something with great power, high speed, great design, great optics and easy to load mechanics. This was achieved with the Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo Walnut Stock Air Rifle. Since the package comes with an Optima scope you do not have to spend more money on one. However, for the pickier rifle user, they will prefer a higher scope category. Being left-handed I appreciated the ambidextrous design which means I was not uncomfortable when using it. It can get loud and should be used in open fields, not a backyard. For all the features it offers as seen in this Hatsan 95 Air Rifle Combo Review, I believe that the price tag is quite acceptable.
