How sturdy is the pump arm and linkage? Will it hold up for 5 to 8 pumps from 40 to 50 lbs.? I would not want to slam the lever too fast - Keeping steady pressure on it rather than pumping fast. If the linkage bends or breaks, are replacement parts available through Pyramyd Air or other sources?
Have not heard any issues with bending linkages. Yes, you can get replacement parts if needed.
What is the outside diameter of the barrel? Distance between the barrel and pump tube cap? Would a TKO fit?
How about manufacturing a threaded barrel version for accessories, such as splitters?
Tyler you should make a youtube review video on this gun it would help out with some questions we have
My arms hurt at the thought of it LOL. Maybe at some point down the road, it's definitely on the list.
Has the pump geometry been changed from the SPA/Artemis version?
The pump handle and stock itself have been.
Do anyone know if there will be a synthetic model availible?
Not that I have heard about
Is the breech painted or anodized? Are the barrel amd pump tube painted or blued?
Anodized for the breech and blued for the barrel and tube
What is the length of pull?
Other than a magazine I don't see a advantage over a Benjamin even scope mt are they that much more accurate
Everybody is entitled to their own opinion
By when will this rifle be in stock?
Should be any day now, I'm told they are in the states.
I would like to know if 177cal is sufficient for taking down squirrels and rats
Yes, with 7 or 8 pumps this should be very doable.
Is the accuracy good enough to reach out at 25 yards and does it have enough energy to take out rabbits at that range?
Definitely, with the full 8 pumps, you should have no problem. Especially in .22
How is the accuracy of this rifle for target shooting? Does it shoot as well as the daisy 753?
At 10m with the right pellet it will group very well, maybe not LW barrel good for every gun, but very close.
How easy or hard is this rifle to pump 8Xs? Compared to a 392 (Which I think is extremely hard to pump 8Xs.) Or a Winchester 77XS , Daisy 880(Extremely easy to pump 8Xs).
The 77XS is no different than the 880 because essentially it is the same power plant with a different stock. I own both.
Easier for me than a 392, but still difficult. Harder than an 880. Can't speak to the 77XS.
For the 10 for 10 test. What is the acceptable velocity range for the 800fps? For example, 800fps+/- 10fps = 790 to 810 fps. When you test the rifle I am going to buy if at max velocity it fires at 790 fps , the rifle would pass the 10 for 10 inspection?
In my personal experience, Paying for the 10 for 10, PA will ship it regardless of the outcome. They sent me a Hatsan 95 that was 20% below advertised lead pellet speed using the super light RWS hobbies.They even provided the documentation to prove it was a lemon but sent it to me anyway, Now, that said, they refunded me and I am still a happy PA customer. But save your $10.
That depends on what weight pellet is used for testing. They may not use the same 7.3 grain pellet that the gun was rated with.
If you could compare this rifle to the benjamin 392, which one would be better in regards to power and over all performance?(.22)
Even though the Benji doesn't have the magazine option i would say it is built better , theres nothing like an old classic. To much stuff comes from China.
For me, the magazine is a big plus as well as the ability to easily scope the rifle without special mounts. Accuracy and energy are comparable between the two.
Is a PAL required for this product in Canada? I dont know what the rules are for multi pump air guns
Yes, because it is capable of producing more than 500 fps.
Does it include a magazine and can you pump it ten times?
Yes one mag is included. The gun takes a maximum of 8 pumps, not 10
Is Seneca the same as air venturi?I see Air venturi has the exact same model.
Seneca is Air Venturi's hunting line
are there photos of the magazine? Please show demo of the pumping action like where does the forestock pivot from and how long is the cocking stroke?
The magazine is the same as the one for the diana stormrider, so you can see it here: Diana Stormrider .177 cal. Magazine...
anyone know the trigger pull on the dragonfly?
Between 4-5 lbs
Are the sights removable?
The rear sight is removable. The front sight is part of the muzzle brake, so you'd have to take the whole brake off.
If I pre-order, when do you take the money?
If you pay with a credit card, it is not charged until the product is ready to ship. If you pay via paypal, the money is pulled immediately.
What is the pumping effort and give some detail photos of the magazine. Thanks, Dave B
Hi all, what country is this rifle manufactured in?
With the barrel not having front support, is the barrel prone to being damaged, bent, etc when accidentally hit or dropped?
That depends on how it lands if you drop it or where it gets hit. The idea would be to avoid that if possible. But in my experience, they are pretty sturdy and can take some abuse
The manual says that with 8 pumps the velocity for .22 caliber is 500 fps, the PA website says 630 fps. Can anyone confirm either claim? Thanks.
630 w/ 14.3 is correct
Where is this rifle manufactured?
I could be wrong , but my info is that it is made by SnoPeak in China.
