Things I liked: Beautiful gun. Very accurate. Amazing workmanship and quality and lots of gun for the $$$ especially when compared to most other big bore guns. I own 2 other makes and also have previously owned a Sam Yang 909S which was a very good shooter.

Things I would have changed: After about 20 shots the air chamber sprung a leak and I had to return the gun. It would fill to about 2000 psi from my Scuba tank and when the pressure increased above 2000psi it would start hissing at the muzzle end. Very disappointed as this was the last Recluse in stock at PA for several weeks. I debated about paying the $10 for 10 shots before I received the gun but it turned out that it didn't matter anyway as it shot perfectly the first 10 shots. My only other complaint was the extremely hard trigger pull. Too bad that the manufacturer doesn't spend another $25 or so to hone the trigger and sear. Should be a very simple job.

What others should know: PA was amazing at how they handled my problem. I simply called and they graciously sent me a return FEDEX label and promptly gave me a full credit. They offered to fix the gun, send me another one or give me a refund. I decided not to wait on another gun at this time. I have bought several things from PA in the past and will continue to do so. Not many companies are out there with such a liberal return policy on items like this.

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: Very powerful. Can shoot different sizes of .357 easily. This gun is very accurate. Did I say powerful? a blast to shoot.

Things I would have changed: make a repeater. make cocking handle a bit more sturdy.

  • Robert from USA asked:

    What kind of game are peopleusing this for?

    • 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.
