Thread: Hatsan Escort Chokes?

  1. #1

    Hatsan Escort Chokes?

    I have the chance of a Hatsan Escort Semi Auto with 3.5 inch chambers which I am interested in as it is "at the right money" and I tend to shoot slightly better with a Semi Auto - I know that Hatsans are quite disliked by some but I can borrow this gun to try it out whenever I want to make sure that it recycles properly and fit me, etc.
    The gun only comes with one choke so I would be interested in getting a set of choke tubes to go with it if I decide to buy the gun. However I am finding a little difficulty in finding any prices on the internet for Hatsan Chokes so does anyone know who stocks Hatsan Chokes and roughly what sort of price they are please?


    Mods - If this is in the wrong section please feel free to move it!

    some other chokes fit
    Hatsan chokes - Guns Equipment - Pigeon Watch Forums

    I had one that was battered and after a good clean worked very well and cycled most things but I left it wide open for use with steel

    Don't want to put a dampner on your potential purchase FB but make sure you check the gun over very carefully. I'm sure many people are perfectly happy with these guns, but my father had a problem with one he purchased from new. Half way through a 50 bird clay shoot what we thaught were sparks could be seen coming out of the muzzle, on checking the choke had disintegrated and the end of the barrel was bulged!
    Probably a one-off, but forewarned etc.

    Early ones suffered with quality control especially the maching of the the barrel threads for the chokes. I had 2 the blow the chokes out the end.

    Some people use beretta type Mobil chokes but they are very slightly different I wouldn't risk it, the Hatsan chokes are also a lot cheap (half the price trade) of the beretta chokes.

    The long chambered ones (Magnums) are problematic as you can only use cartridges of 70mm or over in them. If you use shorter they will try to load both cartridges in the mag and jam!
    They also need to be kept very clean with a heat resistant oil.
    Great value guns, but there are better ones which are less fussy.

    Not always !
    I bought one with 'posh' Turkish walnut wood and not only does it look good it works with all manner of cartridges.
    I mentioned it on here some time ago about when I was pigeon shooting in the morning and couldn't load up quick enough so lunch time, after several phone calls, located one and bought it.
    I use it with the 26" barrells for walk arounds and pigeon shooting and have used up most of my odds and sods of variouse makes, weights, wads and lengths of cartridges and not had any faults at all.

    It's probably not the 3.5" magnum then!

    I understand what some members are saying about problems with some Hatsans and I appreciate it. This is why I am going to be allowed to try the gun for a couple of days first so that I can put it through it's paces with different cartridges and make sure that I am "comfortable" with it. At the same time I will be able to take the choke that is currently in the gun out to check that also!
    I can also confirm that it is definitely the 3.5 inch magnum!
