Fun with Hatsan 130QE mod
« on: April 09, 2021, 03:40:38 PM »
It's been awhile since I shot my Hatsan 130QE 8mm smoothbore shotgun. I can shoot shots of any size shot as long as I dont exceed 50 grains. I have loaded them with several sizes. including .22 and .177.

Today we will be shooting  #8 shot

The gun was disassembled and the barrel bored to 8mm with a slight choke then polished. A brass sleeve installed on breach side of barrel to accept the slightly smaller gel capsules size 0 at 7.65 mm. The gas ram was custom sealed and the bar increased to 173bar. Shroud was cut down with baffling remover and a bead front sight installed, trigger parts cleaned, polished and adjusted the gun resembled and properly lubricated. The gun was ready to shoot.,

That’s cool. Looks like a monster to cock though.

The ram set at 174bar it's a bear to cock. At least 60lbs

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).
