First Look: Hatsan Mod 130S QE Carnivore

Pinterest WhatsApp

HatsanUSA has debuted the Mod 130S QE Carnivore—a powerful .30 caliber (7.62mm) air rifle at home both in the field and on the range. It features a precision-rifled, German-steel barrel that produces velocities up to 590 fps (.30/7.62mm). The integrated Vortex gas-piston technology is designed to provide reliability and performance. Surrounded with their QuietEnergy barrel shroud and integrated sound moderator, the Mod 130S QE Carnivore also includes Hatsan’s Quattro two-stage adjustable match trigger and a metal trigger blade.

This premium break barrel is built with an elevation-adjustable Monte Carlo cheekpiece, a pistol-grip thumbhole stock, and checkering on the grip and fore-end. With its SAS (Shock Absorber System) and a Trio Pad rubber recoil pad, with adjustable spacers to change the length of pull, the Mod 130S QE Carnivore can be made comfortable for anyone to hold and shoot.

The micro-adjustable rear sight, which has both windage- and elevation-adjustable green fiber-optics, provide shooters a clear sight window. The open front sight is also affixed with red fiber optics. Your choice of optics can be fixed to the air rifle on an 11mm dovetail and Weaver combo optics rail with metal scope stop. HatsanUSA also offers the Mod 130S QE Carnivore with a 3X-9X-40 Optima scope and rings as an additional option, to allow the shooter to purchase a complete package.

When cocking the rifle, a manual and automatic cocking safety ensures near error-free firing. Shooters can also reset the safety manually. The automatic safety/anti-bear trap feature sets the manual safety to “on” each time the barrel is broken to start the cocking stroke. Once set, it cannot be taken off “safe” while the barrel is out of battery. The Mod 130S QE is also equipped with built-in sling mounts.
