HatsanUSA has announced the BullMaster, a semi-automatic Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) air rifle with a bullpup design. The BullMaster will be available in .177 and .22 calibers and is HatsanUSA's first venture into semi-automatic PCP airguns. 

"Our customers have been asking us to release a semi-automatic bullpup for quite some time and with the BullMaster, HatsanUSA is delivering in a big way," said Blaine Manifold, president of HatsanUSA. "For us, the key feature is that the semi-automatic action is gas operated, as opposed to electrical. This delivers greater reliability and longevity." 

The semi-automatic action on the BullMaster allows shooters to quickly cycle through a detachable, rotary magazine (14-shot capacity .177 (4.5 mm) and 12-shot capacity in .22 (5.5 mm). Each rifle comes with three magazines and sports carrying slots in the stock for storing spare magazines.

The BullMaster is fitted with a 500cc volume air bottle that is mounted to the forearm. Two air cylinders are included with the rifle. The barrel is fully shrouded, precision rifled and choked for optimal shot count, accuracy and sound moderation.

The rifle features a bullpup-style stock, with an "EasyAdjust" Elevation Comb, which allows shooters to adjust the elevation of the comb with the push of a button.

The BullMaster also utilizes HatsanUSA's patented anti-knock system, which prevents discharge and wastage when the rifle is knocked or bounced.

MSRP: $1,399.99.
