How many shots will you get from your 500cc Recluse? Our tech department filled their Recluse dual-tank air rifle to 3,000 psi, loaded it with 76-grain bullets and let loose! They shot the first 4 shots on high power. The first shot was 925 fps. Shot 4 was 890 fps.

The next 17 bullets were shot on low power. Shot 5 was 855 fps, and the final shot on low power was 683 fps. That brought the tank down to 800 psi for a total of 21 shots.

This shows you what one gun can do. Velocity and psi levels will vary gun to gun.

If you like to hunt and do it extensively, then the Sam Yang Recluse .357-caliber air rifle with a 500cc reservoir will give you lots of shots. Great for hunting woodchucks, nutria, possums, rats, raccoons, crows and similar-sized pests.

Things I liked: This one is fine. It is accurate and hard hitting. I cast 85 grain lead bullets that would normally go in a 380 auto and it shoots them well which saves money over buying pellets. It shoots them at 810 fps on low power and 850 fps on high power. It is most accurate at 2500 psi down to 2000 psi. At full pressure the accuracy seems to suffer some. My neighbor saw this and he insist I give him the website so he could get one too.

Things I would have changed: It is too easy to pull to full power when you are trying to use low power.

What others should know: Do not lay this gun on its side when charging it! The internal seal can then fail to seat and you will have one **** of a time getting it to hold pressure until it reseats. Either stand it up on end or lay it upright in a shooting position to charge it. Now that you know that, you can avoid my frustration and keep on shooting. I have this same gun in 50 cal. The 35 is better. It shoots more shots between charges and the bullets are more accessible.

Things I liked: I like the power and the accuracy. Good for 1 inch groups of 5 shots at 50 yards with good bullets that fit the barrel. .357 to .358 fit my barrel great. Number of shots per charge. 10 good shots on high power, close to 20 on low power.

Things I would have changed: Cocking lever comes loose. Parts of the trigger mechanism are not hardened. Trigger pull is too hard.

What others should know: Gun is very accurate with good fitting bullets. I am getting a bunch from Mr Hollowpoint in tin so I can use them here in California in Condor country. Send your gun to Saddle Mountain Gunsmith and get the trigger work done. If you are shooting under 50 yards, the heavyer ammo may deliver more power. I like the lighter ammo for a flatter trajectory at longer ranges. For hunting, I will be using 87 grain tin bullets which are the same size as 124 grain lead. Tin is 2/3 the weight of lead but tin is too hard to mushroom.

Things I liked: the power

Things I would have changed: the cheap pot metal casting cocking bolt to cock the rifle

What others should know: you will need a carben fiber tank about 120 cub/ft. or a steelhigh pressure 120 cub/ft tank that fills at least 3500 psi.if you get a 80cub/ft allumanim 3000psi you will only get 1 to 3 full fills.

  • Asylum81 from USA asked:

    My front fixed blade sight looks bent when viewing through the rear sight. Is this normal, optical illusion? it appears to be straight when rested and viewed from all sides and angles. Is this due to the nature of the guns natural seating in the shoulder? If not, how can it be fixed since it is fixed?

    • Robert from USA asked:
