Things I liked:The foam padding inside the tin the pellets are all undammaged, no bent or deformed skirts. Best pellet I've used for my .25 cal Marauder. Things I would have changed:Make them less expensive. I go through them fast in my Marauder. What others should know:I don't know how well these pellets work in other air rifles,but for my .25 cal Marauder this is the most accurate, more accurate than the Benjamin 27.8gr. domes. 25 yd. groups 1/2", 50yd. 1 1/2" They easily do 900+ fps in my tuned Marauder.
Things I liked:The pellet wt. Things I would have changed:Improve the quality control. These pellets were dirty with many deformed and bent pellet skirts. What others should know:I bought these pellets for use in my 9mm Sam Yang Recluse after shooting 25 rounds I gave up and put them up to use as a paper weight. The best 5-shot group I got was 9 inches at 25 yards. The worst was just over 12 inches. I get 2 inch groups using #000 buckshot pellets and their a lot cheaper.
Things I liked:Very compact and the sun shade tube, well built scope. Things I would have changed:Needs at least another inch of eye relief and a lens cover that fits the sun shade tube. What others should know:I got this scope for my .50 cal. dragon claw. I got it to work with the use of a leapers off set one piece mount, but even then I had to extend the mount an extra inch back past the tip off rail on the gun in order to get enough eye relief.
Things I liked:Awesome power. Things I would have changed:Lighten the trigger pull, an adjustable trigger would be nice and would contribute greatly towards it's accuracy. Many times while pulling the trigger to shoot I find myself stopping and looking down at the safety to see if its on, it's not. It feels that heavy. What others should know:This .50 cal. dragon claw is a serious weapon. I got this air rifle to hunt feral hogs and after shooting over 500 rounds through it at various targets, I have no doubt that it has more than enough power to do the job, with well placed shots. It easily punches through 2x4s at 35 yards using 188gr. round balls. As it has started to break in now after 500 rounds the max velocity has gone up a bit, with a 188gr. round ball max velocity is between 750-785 fps for the first 2 shots, with a 3,000 psi fill the 1st 4 shots usually all stay above 700 fps. If you plan on using .50 cal round ball don't get the .490, they will just roll down and out the barrel when you till it down and if you shoot them your velocity will be around 135 fps. The .495 fit better with about 8 out of every hundred that will be too loose. Most .495 round balls acually mic out to .492. I started casting my own using a Lee double cavity .500 (LEE-500-DC)mold, (trackofthewolf.com)is where I got my mold. These mic out to .500-.503 @ 188gr. I get the best accuacy with these at 1.5" - 2.5" at 35yds when I do my part. Also this air rifle "IS VERY LOUD!" Overall I highly recommend this air rifle, good looking, good accuacy, and awesome power. Buy it if you can.
