By Leland from USA on 2007-09-05 19:55:02Things I liked:Highly accurate .22 cal pistol with a large hand grip that can be nestled on your collar bone to give you the comfortable secure grasp of a rifle without the extra weight and bulk. I use a Bushnell Trophy R/G dot scope to get very quick target acquisition up to thirty yards. (Skip regular pistol scopes that only focus at an arm's length.)
Things I would have changed:When firing, Evanix releases the air charge directly into the cylinder to propel the pellet forward through the barrell of the pistol, similar to the mechanism of a firearm revolver. This causes noise and blowback from the firing mechanism, a problem resolved by Korean rifle manufacturers.
What others should know:By reducing the muzzle report with a modifier and using a fill pressure of 1500 psi, this pistol gives six fairly quiet accurate shots with Beeman Kodiaks that puts my RWS scoped 460 rifle to shame. If you already have a scuba tank setup with a PCP rifle, this pistol gives affordable portable power when you don't feel like lugging around a rifle, and it outshoots a Browning Buckmark 22 hands down.

By Andrew from USA on 2015-05-27 16:06:09Things I liked:Nothing. What a piece of junk. This pistol is in my trash can. It is inoperable and there is no way to send it back for repair. I live outside the United States and recent TSA regulations prohibit the shipment of ANYTHING resembling a firearm (even TOYS!) into the United States. Despite multiple phone calls with Pyramid Air and some freebie seals and parts, no one outside the States can figure out how to take it apart and fix it. Actually, one did take it apart, placed new seals, but it still failed to recharge - leaking air immediately upon charging.
Things I would have changed:This was my first PCP and my first air gun, so I was not familiar with how these worked. What no one told me and I never read it anywhere, is that there must always be some pressure inside the gun at all times. Do NOT shoot it until the air is empty! Further, do not leave the hammer down when not in use. It can press on a tiny valve that can release air. (This is why one reviewer says to cock the hammer when recharging). So four weeks after I shot the gun empty and left the hammer down, it would not recharge properly, leaking air from multiple ports during the recharge process. Of course this was after I purchased a $600 air tank and finally got a correct tubing with quick connect as Air Pyramid sent me the wrong recharging set up (a $125 mistake). After spending $2000 for the gun, wrong tubing, international courier delivery via FEDEX, customs taxes, air tank, corrected tubing, and valves, it doesn't work at all and I cannot send it back. Bummer.
What others should know:Always leave positive air pressure inside the gun. Never shoot it empty. The air seals always need some positive air pressure. Don't store with the hammer down. Leave the hammer cocked. One more thing: the lack of iron sights is a major problem. I tried to fit a red dot sight on it, but after placing an adapter, it sits so high up that it made it very difficult to adjust the windage.
