The following is a press release from HatsanUSA
HatsanUSA has read your online comments, they’ve heard your ideas voiced at trade-shows, and now the company is proud to announce the release of its new Gladius airgun line.
Designed to answer the wants and needs of the airgun community, casual shooters and those tinkering with the idea of getting into airgunning, this new line features a number of firsts for HatsanUSA.
The most noticeable feature of the Gladius is its customizable bullpup design. The advanced polymer stock is ambidextrous and features an elevation adjustable comb and adjustable butt pad to ensure that you’re comfortable with every shot you take. The stock also features onboard storage for up to 3 magazines.The Gladius design also utilizes a side-lever action that allows for quick and effortless follow-up shots.
But, the Gladius is more than aesthetics. This is the first airgun from HatsanUSA to feature adjustable power settings.
With the turn of a dial, shooters can choose from 6 graduated settings and go from plinking in their own backyard to varmint hunting, all while using the same airgun. This feature not only allows users to choose the perfect velocity and power for their intended target, but also aids in the maximizing shots-per-fill. Based on the selected power setting, the Gladius is able to provide anywhere between 35 and an incredible 90 shots per fill.
Although the Gladius is a completely different venture for Hatsan, it still carries many of the traits that have made the company one of the most preferred airgun manufacturers in the world – such as a fully adjustable two-stage Quattro Trigger, a detachable aluminum air cylinder tube, anti-double feed, a precision rifled barrel and Hatsan’s patented Anti-Knock system to prevent gas wastage when the rifle is knocked or bounced.

The Gladius is also fitted with Hatsan’s QuietEnergy Technology. This proprietary system uses a fully-integrated sound moderator to diminish overall sound by more than 50% – making the Gladius quiet enough for backyard shooting.
The Gladius will also be available in a Long version, which features an extended barrel for those looking for both increased accuracy and energy upon impact.
