Hatsan launches airgun aimed solely at young shots

The Striker Junior is a lightweight version of the bestselling Hatsan Striker, which is loaded with adult features.

With a black, ambidextrous synthetic stock, the .177 Striker Junior is based on the ever-popular Striker action, but has a tapered barrel to reduce weight and easier break barrel resistance.

The 6ft/lb airgun also boasts an adjustable trigger and micro adjustable rear sight for both windage and elevation including Truglo fibre optic sights.

Distributed by Edgar Brothers since 1999, Hatsan has become the number one Turkish gun in the UK.

Edgar Brothers’ Managing Director, Derek Edgar, said: “Nearly everyone starts shooting with an airgun. Unlike some other junior airguns, the Striker Junior does not look like a toy.”

“Choosing the right one for your child is incredibly important. My first ever airgun was a Slavia 618, I treasured it as a kid, it was really accurate and still works to this day. I’m pleased to say that the Hatsan Striker Junior has already been incredibly well received by retailers.”
