HatsanUSA has announced its largest airgun to date—the .62 caliber PileDriver, designed for high-powered hunting applications. Capable of producing over 700 ft-lbs. of kinetic energy in .62 caliber, it is also available in .45- and .50-caliber models. Although the gun utilizes a 33-inch barrel, its bullpup design keeps maximum length under four feet. The side-lever cocking mechanism is easy to reach and operate.
A 480cc carbon fiber bottle fills to 4350 psi and provides up to six full-powered shots on a single fill. A built-in pressure gauge aids in monitoring pressure in the cylinder, and a quick-fill nozzle allows easy refilling. The PileDriver’s unique, patented hammer design eliminates traditional steel coil springs in favor of a smoother, easier-to-cock, gas-piston mechanism. This top-loading single-shot rifle features an extra-large loading port that will accommodate ammo up to 34mm in length.
The rifle’s 14-inch-long scope rail is cut to accept both picatinny and 11mm dovetail mounts, offering plenty of real estate for various optics. Three picatinny accessory rails are attached around the air bottle for added customization. The steel barrel is rifled for long-range accuracy, and the absence of a shroud allows for sabot rounds, further expanding ammunition options. The fully adjustable 2-stage Quattro trigger is another customizable feature the .62 Caliber PileDriver offers. The receiver is anodized in black, and a manual safety is included.
The all-weather, synthetic bullpup stock features an ergonomic pistol grip with textured grip surfaces. The soft rubber buttpad is both elevation and angle adjustable to ensure controlled recoil and a comfortable fit. An elevation adjustable cheek rest ensures proper sight alignment with any optic.
