HatsanUSA Inc. Makes Debut at Academy Sports + Outdoors
Select models of HatsanUSA Inc. airguns are now available for purchase from over 100 Academy Sports + Outdoors retail stores as well, as the retailer’s website. The initial launch with the national retailer includes Hatsan’s youth model .177cal Alpha airgun and full size .22cal Edge Combo.
“We’re thrilled that Academy has chosen to offer these high quality airguns in their stores,” said HatsanUSA Inc. CEO and President Blaine Manifold. “Both of these initial airguns are perfect for new shooters looking to hone their skills in target shooting, plinking or small game hunting.”
The .177cal youth model Alpha is designed for beginner shooters and uses a break-barrel spring to project heavy weight pellets with a muzzle velocity of 495fps. These lightweight airguns are fitted with a micro adjustable rear site and open front site that both feature Truglo fiber optics. The .177 Alpha can be found both online and in select Academy Sports + Outdoor stores in Muddy Girl Camouflage for $129.99.
The .22cal Edge is a more advanced break-barrel spring powered airgun. Its innovative design allows it to shoot dense .22cal lead pellets with a muzzle velocity of 800fps. The Edge Combo pack includes a bipod and a 3-9×32 fully multi-coated Optima scope and is available in stores for $149.99.
Like all airguns from HatsanUSA Inc., the Apha and Edge are manufactured in Turkey with components that are nearly all made in-house, including precision rifled barrels made from quality German steel and adjustable trigger systems. Unlike other airgun manufacturers, Hatsan airguns are tested with heavy weight lead pellets that they are designed to shoot. This gives users the ability to shoot with greater accuracy and achieve stronger energy upon impact.
