Hatsan USA has released the Hydra QE—now with an arrow-launcher—featuring its patented Versi-Cal Technology (VCT) interchangeable-caliber system, allowing the exchange of calibers via a single thumb screw. The VCT system couples a caliber-specific receiver and barrel into a single interchangeable module that enables the scope to remain mounted and zeroed in with each caliber used. A knurled screw located at the rear of the receiver locks the upper module onto the lower receiver, allowing caliber changes in a few seconds. The Hydra QE utilizes Hatsan’s S/Roto-Index magazine system—a caliber-specific self-indexing rotary magazine made from polymer. Each module features Hatsan’s QuietEnergy shrouded barrel that reduces downrange noise by up to 50 percent.

The Turkish-walnut stock is laser engraved with ample texturing on critical grip surfaces, that enhance feel and control of the rifle. A Monte Carlo-style cheek rest rises to the right height for use with scopes. The rubber butt pad is both elevation and fit-angle adjustable for a customizable fit. A fixed 165cc air cylinder fills to 2900 psi, and can provide up to 35 powerful shots. Weighing in at just 6.8 pounds, this modular airgun is easy to carry and shoot. The Hatsan Hydra is available in .177, .22, .25 caliber, or with an arrow launcher, with additional barrel/receiver modules available separately.
