It’s a Hatsan Model 70 Vortex. This uses a gas-filled tube which breaking the barrel compresses to make the piston fly forward, rather than a spring. The model 70 is available as either that or a springer gun. They’re basically the same except that the gas tube can be left cocked.
Is it quieter than a springer? Does it act more like a PCP in that regard. I know my RWS 34 is loud; first the supersonic crack and then the noise of the spring makes me leery of using it in my backyard in my neighborhood.
