    Things I liked:High quality fit and finish.
    Things I would have changed:Cocking handle needs to be improved
    What others should know:It is very, very difficult to charge with a hand pump. A scuba tank or very high pressure pump like the Shoebox is almost a necessity to get above 1500 psi.

    Things I liked:The Recluse is a well made air gun - nice barrel bluing, the wood stock and forearm finished nicely and the etching on the receiver is very cool. The gun is very powerful and loud for the first several shots. It handles well and is comfortable to shoot. I bought the single reservoir model (244 cc) because according to Will Piatt at Saddle Mountain Gunsmith it is slightly more powerful than the 500 cc model but you get fewer shots. It's a really nice looking gun.
    Things I would have changed:The trigger is very stiff. A two stage trigger with less trigger pull weight would help, but this is not a big issue.
    What others should know:I took the advice from Will Piatt and purchased four different types of ammo: JSB Exact King 77.62 grain Pellets, Mr. Hollowpoint 85grain holllowpoint EPPUG slugs (.358" diameter), 92 grain flat nose EPPUG slugs (.358" diameter), and 000 Buckshot (.360" diameter, 70 grains) from Ballistics Products. I sighted my gun in at 50 yards (I was hoping to get good groups at 75 yards). The gun does not shoot the EPPUG slugs as well as I hoped - 2.75" five-shot groups with the 92 grain flat nose and 4" groups with the 85 grain hollowpoints at 50 yards. The JSB pellets shoot 3.5" five-shot groups at 50 yards. The 000 buckshot shoots the best out of my gun - .75" - 1.25" groups at fifty yards. Do not try to mount a 50mm scope on this gun, even using high scope mounts - it will not work. The PA sales rep sold me a standard Hawke Airmax EV scope and assured me after speaking with the gun mechanics that it would work. Well it doesn't work. I removed the rear sight and the scope still contacts the ring that the rear sight attaches to. This ring is not removable. I had to buy the UTG Compact IE 44mm scope and use the medium height scope rings. They work well. I was able to get up to 976 fpe using the JSB pellets and 989 fpe using the 000 buckshot. I plan to send the gun to Saddle Mountain Gunsmith and get a power tune. Hopefully this will also improve the accuracy of the gun. My goal is 1" groups at 75 yards for coyote hunting. It takes around 325+ pumps to fill (Hill Pump)

    • jason from USA asked:

      Trying to decide between the hand pump or a scuba tank.

      • Tyler from USA:

        A tank would be best, specifically a carbon fiber tank as it will give you more fills but you need somewhere that can fill to 4500 psi.

    • jason from USA asked:

      How hard is it to use the hand pump with the sam yang recluse.

      • Tyler from USA:

        While it is possible, I wouldn't recommend hand pumping unless you are looking for a good workout.

    To fill your PCP gun:
    1. Pick a source of air shown at right
    2. If an adapter is needed, one will be shown
    3. Add both to your cart to get hooked up
