Want to have some backyard fun shooting cans or targets? Check out the new HatsanUSA Riptor—a C02-powered, semi-automatic BB pistol. With its realistic blowback action, it's also a great option for teaching pistol fundamentals to first-time shooters.
"Hatsan fans have been asking for us to bring a realistic blowback CO2 BB pistol to the U.S. market, and with the Riptor, we feel like we've answered the call with an inexpensive and fun-to-shoot BB pistol," said Blaine Manifold, president of HatsanUSA. "The fact that it is also quite accurate and extremely quiet will add to the appeal."
The Riptor is powered by replaceable 12 gram CO2 air cylinders and fires .177 caliber BBs. Average velocities are 350 fps using steel BBs. The Riptor's removable magazine holds 15 BBs, the CO2 cartridge and valve.
The Riptor's integral QuietEnergy sound suppression system reduces downrange noise, making it ideal for backyard plinking. An all-metal construction ensures durability of the pistol and a built-in Weaver accessory rail make it possible to attach lights, lasers and other accessories. The grip is covered in textured polymer to ensure a comfortable grip for almost any hand size.
