  • Raymond from USA asked:

    Will an ATN X-sight 4k 5-20 scope mount to the 50 Cal dragon claw gun?

  • joel from USA asked:

    How do I store this gun with air in it or without air in it if with air how much?

    • Mark from USA:

      You should store a PCP airgun with 800-1000 PSI in it.

  • Joshua from USA asked:

    How do I install the cocking lever? My gun is charged at 100 psi. What do I have to move or take apart to install the cocking lever

    • Mark from USA:

      Using a hex key or phillips screwdriver pull the bolt back to half cock. Using the hex drive bolt attach the cocking handle ,curve towards the muzzle.

  • Beth from USA asked:

    I bought one of these and cannot seem to disconnect the air hose from the guns reservoir without it completely leaking out. I have a G9 hand pump and wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

  • Beth from USA asked:

    Just purchased the dragon claw 50 caliber. When trying to fill the guns reservoir with my air Venturi hand pump G9 I could not seem to disconnect the fill hose from the air tank without losing all my air in the Guns reservoir. Any suggestions?

    • Mark from USA:

      Once you fill the gun. While still connected to the pump. Tilt the gun muzzle down, Rap the muzzle end against a table leg,or something solid. The check valve is getting stuck. The hit helps it fall into place, open the bleed valve quickly. This will help as well.

  • darrin from USA asked:

    Curious, Who can tell me which Picatinny rail will replace the factory scope rail?

  • Ronald from USA asked:

    On the dragon claw duel tank 50 cal how many refills do you get with a tank?

    • Mark from USA:

      Refills depend on the tank size. 100 cu in=5-6 fills. 74 cu ft 15-17 frills 100 cu ft 30-32 fills/ a scuba tank 88 cu ft at 3000 psi =5-6 fills.

  • Nicholas from USA asked:

    I am looking at possibly buying one of these. I mostly tree stand hunt, and use a pull up rope to raise and lower my gun or bow. Is there a way to de-cock this gun before lowering it to the ground?

    • Mark from USA:

      To de-cock the Dragon Claw : You pull and hold the bolt (real tight) Pull the trigger and ease the bolt forward.

  • Bertie from Solomon Islands asked:

  • Richard from USA asked:

    My Seneca dragon claw 50 cal. Is not shooting straight with the Mantis 4x12x40-AO ; I am a fairly good shot with guns and bows since I was trained in the Marine corps ; the gun shoots at the bottom of the target paper and the adjustment to raise the scope is limited out at the highest level ; just recently purchased the rifle and have shot less than 20 rounds .?

    • Mark from USA:

      The pellet trajectory is a pronounced arc. You need to shim the scope. Loosen the sope in the rings. Under the scope tube on the rear ring, the one closest to you , Insert a shim on the bottom ring half. Thin plastic ,a couple layers of popcan. tighten the scope in the rings. This will raise the rear of the scope. looking thru the scope level the gun muzzle will be pointing slightly upward. This should give you up back on scope adjustment.

  • Michael from USA asked:

    Just purchased the gun. A nice looking gun with good features. I am having a hard time cocking the gun from first to second postion to fire a high power. Is this normal for everyone and will Improve over time?

    • Don from USA:

      it will work in. give it some time

  • Mark from USA asked:

    I live in Wisconsin, how would this perform in the winter hunts here. cold weather?

    • Jordan from USA:

      Depending how cold you can vary in FPS due to orings getting hard.

  • jeremy from USA asked:

    I've read on a couple of blogs that the scope rail mount is machined crooked, which causes a scope to sit crooked, is this a common defect for the dragon claw?

    • Edward from USA asked:

      I would like to paint the front site white. Do have any suggestion on paint?

      • Jordan from USA:

        any paint could work.

    • Edward from USA asked:

      Do you have a picaninny scope rail that will fit? I would like mount a 30mm scope rings on to it. The scope rings would need to be high enough to allow the use of the rifles installed sights. Thank You Edward Hernandez

      • Paris from USA asked:

        What is the exact diameter of the bore

        • Mark from USA:

          The bore is 0.495

      • Trace from USA asked:

        Air leaking out of the fill up port.

        • Tyler from USA:

          If this is a statement, and not a question, I'd recommend calling the tech team at PA, they should be able to help you trouble shoot

      • Brandyn from USA asked:

        What are the size and thread count on the end of the barrel? Cant find anything on size anywhere

        • Paris from USA:

      • stu from USA asked:

        I bought the Mantis 4-12x40 AO Rifle Scope to put on my dragon claw and the the scope hits the iron sight. How do I get the scope up higher to clear the sight or around the sight? Or how do you remove the sight? Any suggestions will be most grateful...thanks.

        • Phillip from USA:

          To remove the rear sight, use a Phillips head screw driver and take out the top screw, slowly lift the rear of the rear sight and collect your spring underneath, then remove the remaining screw and the rear sight is now off. Or just buy one inch rings for it

      • logan from USA asked:

        Is the gun capable to kill a deer at 75 yards with a 180 grain bullet and will it have a exit hole

      • mario from USA asked:

        can they be shipped to belgium ?

        • jeff from USA asked:

          With the refurbished "version". what is done to the gun and by whom?

          • jeff from USA:

            thanks dude!

          • Tyler from USA:

            They are inspected/fixed by the Tech Team at Pyramyd Air. If service is required, that is done. The gun may have come back for various reasons, so it is impossible to cover ever scenario, but if the gun had an issue and required new parts, those parts are replaced.

        • Don from USA asked:

          Which Degassing Tool works for the Dragon Claw?

          • SmartPlugs from USA:

            We have a degassing tool in our Dragon Claw upgrade kit. contact me for more information

        • jeff from England asked:

          hi can this be shipped to UK thanks jeff

          • Tyler from USA:


        • John from Switzerland asked:

          hi folks do you ship this to swiss i read the laws, no licence at all, not suprised you can get a 22 or even bigger singel repeater long rifle without one too, and would the hand pump get the max power out of it. i dont got any compression tanks

          • Don from USA:

            Sure You can get the Max with a Hand Pump if You are willing to put in some Muscle and Work

        • scott from USA asked:

          I have an Evanix 480 (.35 cal), Gamo TC45 (.45 cal), and ordered (from Pyramyd of course) the Dragon Claw (.50 cal) as well as the Umarex Hammer (.50 cal). Would you recommend slugging all the barrels, or just the .50 cal? I know I need to use soft lead, recommendations (fishing sinker, current pellet for rifle that's been tapped down to make it wider, etc.)? Thanks

          • Tyler from USA:

            If you plan to cast your own ammo, I would definitely think slugging the barrels will be a smart move. That way you know exactly what diameter ammo you need to cast.

        • Zackary from USA asked:

          Would a Benjamin hand pump work on this?

          • Tyler from USA:


        • Gavin from USA asked:

          Do you need to remove the choke when u shot the air bolt

          • Tyler from USA:

            There is no choke on the dragon claw, only the wing shot. On the wing shot, you do need to remove the choke.

        • Gavin from USA asked:

          can u shoot shot shells out of this gun?

          • Tyler from USA:

          • David from USA asked:

            Which suppressor model works on this rifle? (Please, no warnings about buying suppressors... I know the laws... just tell me which models will work on this gun) Thank you!

            • Paris from USA:

            • David from USA:

            • dallas from USA asked:

              How do I mount a bipod on the dragon claw duel tank

              • Chris from USA:

                Get the quiver add on, for the bow. And the bipod mounts to it. The attachment mounts to barrel

              • Tyler from USA:

                You would have to install a swivel stud into the fore-stock. GrovTec Quick-Detach Sling Swivel Stud...

            • Alexandre from Canada asked:

              Do you need your license even though it's an air rifle?

              • Tyler from USA:

                In Canada, you would need a PAL for this rifle and to find a dealer that can bring it into the country. Pyramyd cannot ship it to Canada

            • Patrick from USA asked:

              What type of fill port is used on this version? Older models use 1/8 BSPP. Can the new style be bought as a replacement?

              • Tyler from USA:

                The current version uses a male quick disconnect fitting.

            • Riley from USA asked:

              How do you go about filling the reservoirs that you fill the gun with, there is know where near me that has a 4500 psi air compressor and I do not want to hand pump it very badly

              • dallas from USA:

                Get you a scuba tank and the K valve fill station it has the female foster fitting and will fit the mail fitting on the rifle. I get 2900 psi fills

            • Bob from USA asked:

              Can use nitrogen in stead of air.

              • Tyler from USA:


            • Jeffrey from USA asked:

              Will this Sam Yang Dragon Claw work with #6 & #8 shot shotgun amio???? It will shoot arrows and as well as of up to .600" in the 500cc .50cal model!!!

              • Tyler from USA:


            • Fred from USA asked:

              Got mine and shot it today using the Air Bolts. I had to really jack up the rear sight for 30yd shots. I can't imagine a scope having that kind of adjustment... we'll see... but I was wondering how close POA/impact is between arrows and slugs? I'm wondering if it can be that far off between the two? If I'll need to crank the sight back down to a more normal position when I shoot slugs? Anybody shooting both?

              • Tyler from USA:

                Yes. This is typical

            • michael from USA asked:

              How hard is it to fill with air pump?

              • Caleb from USA:

                Gotta be a joke. I weigh 190 and have 6 pcp guns including a Sumatra 2500. I shot and fill will a Benjamin hand pump. Its a pain but manageable

              • Don from USA:

                Start Body Building if You have not done so already :) they claim it takes a 225 pound man to pump this I am only 175.00 pounds and I work out for many years so it is not that hard if You go to the gym regularly

            • chris from USA asked:

              What mold cast the most accurate usable bullet for hunting dear sized animals.

              • Lt. One Wolf from USA asked:

                Can I use an air compressor to fill this gun and what kind of adapter would I need? Are they sold on this site>

                • Tyler from USA:

                  If you mean a shop compressor, no. It does not put out the pressure required to fill this. Pyramyd does sell compressors that are capable of filling this gun here: Air Venturi Air Compressor, Electric,...

              • Paul from USA asked:

                Can i shoot the wing shot shot she'll with the dragon claw

                • Kevin from USA:

                  not recommended, this barrel is rifled bore not smooth bore, you will get plastic fouling but you can use sabots with .45 cal bullets but you will get the same plastic fouling.

              • Jeromy from USA asked:

                On the eunjin meter what is the Max fill 20 or 30?

                • Kevin from USA:

                  20, right where the green and the red lines meet

              • John from USA asked:

                How much does this gun weigh?

                • Kevin from USA:

                  8.5 lbs

              • WILMA from USA asked:

                What is max affective range of this gun?

                • dallas from USA:

                  About100 yards

              • John from USA asked:

                Do they have a left handed stock or version of this rifle?

                • Stanley from USA:


              • Raymury from USA asked:

                I got the .50 cal 250 grain from venturi and it seems to be a super tight fit and I'm afraid it will get stuck in the barrel?

                • deerflyguy from USA:

                  I believe that you should "slug" your bore and, using accurate calipers, measure the slug. Then, go to a seller, like Hunter's Supply, and have them swage bullets to your exact caliber. They will usually do this for you at no extra charge, and you can then be sure that the ammunition you are using will perform well in your gun.

              • jordan from USA asked:

                Does this gun have a swivel stud ( if not how can I put a bipod on it )?

                • Don from USA:

                  You can put a bipod on it if You get the Air Venturi Quiver & Bipod Mounting Bracket

                • Stanley from USA:

                  No it doesn't .

              • ANTHONY from USA asked:

                The ammo on this site is limited, can these big bore rifles shoot standard muzzle loader rounds, specifically sabot rounds from Hornady or Thompson/Center?

                • dallas from USA:

                  You can use .495 muzzle loader rounds

                • deerflyguy from USA:

                  This gun should use only soft lead bullets for best performance. Hard lead, jacketed, sabots, and lubricated bullets should be avoided. They can damage rifling, sabots can come loose and plug a barrel, and lubed bullets can dirty a barrel quickly.

                • Jerry from USA:

                  I would not recommend sabot ammo

              • randy from USA asked:

                this gun is loud is there a suppresser that fits this gun ???????????

                • deerflyguy from USA:

                  There are supressors that will fit, but in most states, they require a special license, or are simply illegal to use on ANY type of gun, firearm or air. Don't take the chance!

              • Charles from Canada asked:

                How many full power shot on one fill?

                • John from USA:

                  I get 15 shots using 185 gr lead. After 15 shots on full power I see bullet drop out of the x zone by about 1/4" lower by shot.

                • Val from USA:

                  Read the part of the description that describes the technique of switching to half-power after 4th shot and basically continue getting consistent shot string.

                • Tyler from USA:

                  You will get roughly 6 shots per fill.

              • Charles from Canada asked:

                THis is in the "hunting" category so what kind of game does that include?

                • deerflyguy from USA:

                  In some locales, they can be used to hunt deer sized animals. Laws vary, so do your homework before you decide to use this on game animals.

                • Val from USA:

                  this one when untuned can take up to javelina up to 35-40 yards. People do hunt wild boar with these.

              • spider from USA asked:

                Is there a way to put a bipod on this dual tank gun. If so, what kind do I need to get?

                • Don from USA:

                  Or to make it easier just get the Air Venturi Quiver & Bipod Mounting Bracket Item# Air Venturi Quiver & Bipod...

                • Dan the Man from USA:

                  You would have to tap the fore grip with a swivel screw, then get a bi pod with the swivel adapter.

              • anthony from USA asked:

                should the .50 cal pellet on the Sam Yang Dragon Claw 500cc Air Rifle be seated as far forward as possible or to the back of the breach? Thanks

                • Tyler from USA:

                  I would seat the pellet further forward in the breech.

              • spider from USA asked:

                How do you fill the middle air resevior?

                • Val from USA:

                  The middle reservoir is connected to the bottom one, so when you fill the rifle you fill both tanks at the same time.
