Things I liked:

light weight, .25 caliber. lots of power, easy to recharge and with a spare carbon fiber tank it only takes a minute. very accurate with dial to change the power levels. almost equals a standard velocity .22 Long Rifle with practice this rifle will put meat on the table with ease.

Things I would have changed:

should come with sling studs and open sights as standard for a survival rifle.

What others should know:

Eujin 43 grain pellets are a tight fit, but are very accurate and hard hitting. prepare to pump by hand--or buy the compressor/equipment to refill a portable carbon fiber tank. loud--not for populated areas backyard target practice.

Things I liked:

Definitely has a lot of power. That's about it. I must've gotten a dud because I've tried just about every pellet out of this thing with the same inaccuracy from each.

Things I would have changed:

Ok first of all there are no swivels for shoulder strap you have to purchase separately. Secondly there are no manual sights which is kinda lame considering no scope comes with this gun, which again is kinda lame considering the price tag of this thing. Very uncomfortable to shoot considering there is no riser for the cheek. You have to really get awkward to see through the scope since the air tank is all you have to rest on. The automatic safety jams on me, I have to cock it a few times in order for it to disengage. And the worst part of it all I cannot get a straight/consistent shot out of the thing to save my life. I'm averaging a 2.5 inch shot group at 35 yards with JSB's and that is awful you guys. I really hate being the guy to leave such a poor review, but after owning the gun for 2 years and trying every ammo out there I've given up on it. It sits in the closet collecting cobwebs. I had a 40 multi pump Daisy outshoot this thing. Maybe a got a bad barrel. Idk. Paid too much IMO

What others should know:

All your getting is a lot of power. Zero options. Sites, swivels, cheek adjustment, etc. Bare basics with this thing. Definitely will be paying more than it is worth in my opinion.

    What others should know:

    This air gun is arguably the most powerful .25 caliber air rifle on the market. I pushed it out to 100 yards and could still hit a 2x4 board with no issue. Many options with this gun on scopes, and other accessories. Definitely recommend.

    Things I liked:

    As a prepper, I wanted as much flexibility as I could get in 1 gun, so I bought a TalonP and the 24" barrel so I could use it as a small, very light carbine with over 50 fpe, or as a proper Escape with over 98 fpe. Both configurations are mind numbingly accurate, and more than powerful enough to perform any task that might arise if I find myself disastered outa shelter and food. I hasten to mention, that with luck, this fantastic air rifle will never be used off the range or out kicking around in the woods. Having survival equipment is a lot like owning a parachute- if you HAVE one and don't need it, no big deal- but if you NEED one and don't have one, chances are you will have a bad day.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have seen this mentioned in another post but I'll second it- It's a survival rifle, it should come with sights and sling swivels; of course I solved that with a pistol laser on the bottom rail, and a Gamo gun buddy, which actually works pretty well to carry it at high port, in carbine mode and it doesn't detract from the " black rifle " looks.

    What others should know:

    I'm disabled, and I can pump it to 3k psi. I use ( and recommend ) a Hill pump, I go slow and it's challenging but it's very doable. I don't move too well, too far or too fast but I CAN be very still for long periods, which suits the long range blind hunting that this rifle with it's ample power and mind bending accuracy is so well suited to. Of course, so is the Texan which every prepper should have on accounta what kinda air gunner wouldn't want a beast like that? It should be required at birth ... You, newborn, you like air gunning? "Goo" -- See! That's a yes! order him a Texan immediately! Don't worry, I'll test it extensively so it'll be dialed in by the time she/he is 18.

    Things I liked:

    I've become a great fan of AirForce PCP airrifles. The .25 caliber is a jewel in finish and enjoyment of use. I purchased the Texan last fall and was extremely pleased with the accuracy and finish. This is the little brother that is extremely accurate and is my squirrel hunting rifle (this is allowed in Texas). It is loud but not a problem for me on my 10 acre horse ranch west of Fort Worth. I scoped it in using the Eunjin 46.2 gr. at about 95 fp at the muzzle. This is a sweet load and perfect for the wild turkeys in our fields. Alas, I'll have to wait for that dream since Texas has been slow to except airgun game hunting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Cocking action like the Texan which is the best.

    What others should know:

    Perfect for the wife who loves it's size and weight. Probably going to lose it to her.

    Things I liked:

    .25 caliber escape. very light weight, extremely accurate out past 100yds and under. farthest so far was 125yds. easy to fill with a handpump. i can get 5 high powered shot in the same hole before poi shifts. using normal pellets for hunting small game i can probably get 20 or more shots on the lowest power setting and still have an extreme amount of power from every shot. im a hunter and i love it. might get a bigger tank though, maybe, or a buddy bottle.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing, i love it.

    What others should know:

    if you want extreme power from the get go, heres your prize.

    the power.. my customized .25 does just over 140 fpe with a 73 grain hp

    Things I would have changed:

    a 1 piece tophat from the factory would be nice.

    What others should know:

    do not get this gun thinking your going to shoot in the backyard.. this is a hunting gun.. to those complaining about a low shot count what kind of bag limits does your state have? on a single fill i can hit my bag limit on squirrels and rabbits.. if you want to do alot of target shooting then get a condor or talon.. if you want to put game in the freezer this is the gun for you

    Things I would have changed:

    I like the small tank for filling off handpump.but i did go ahead and order larger tank for more shots

    What others should know:

    This is a very powerful rifle and being so its also very loud like 22 lr or more.But if noise isnt a issue great gun.

    Things I liked:

    Lightweight, accurate, and super easy to fill the tank using a hand pump.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stock could use a little extension and/or padding for comfort but not a big a deal. I plan to wrap mine with para cord.

    What others should know:

    I read a review you need to be >300lb to fill the tank to the max. Its not true, the pump must have had a link in the connector or something as I weigh 150lb and have no trouble filling this thing. Highly recommend this smaller tank if your primary source is a hand pump. highly recommend the Hills pump also.

    Things I liked:

    I ordered an escape in .25 cal and various other accessories spent over $1200 ,and first of all when my gun came in and I opened it the grip was cracked and my scope rings were missing screws so I called pyramid air and they told me they can't replace parts just the whole gun I had already waited like 8-9 days when it was supposed to be here in 3-5 and it was two separate packages the second took 10 days.. So I called air force and they happily sent me a grip and screw that pyramid couldn't do so I replaced the grip and the missing screws and thought I was finally good,but wait I tried to load it and to my surprised the escape I ordered in 25 cal was in 22 WTF was my thought the box says 25 cal my order says .25 cal so does my invoice but they sent me a beat up 22 with other nicks and handling marks after I spent over $1200 so I called air force once again because pyramid air can't give me what I ordered and they sent out an .25 barrel

    Things I would have changed:

    Pyramid air needs to check what they send out before they send out orders it's been over a month since I ordered and my gun and it still isn't right sitting here with my 22 barrel I ordered on the side and one that came on my escape in 25 cal why is there a 22 batrel on a 25? And why in the world would I order a 22 escape then another 22 barrel on the side? Pyramid air please get your stuff together.

    What others should know:

    Don't do large orders with pyramid air they'll sell you crap you didn't even order or a beat up gun if they don't have what you ordered. The least they could've done was ship me a new gun in 25 cal and once that I arrived I can ship the crappy gun I didn't even order back but I guess they have no customer service and air force has to make up for there mistakes.i bought the hand pump,scuba adaptor,scope,rings,extra 22 barrel since the gun I ordered was in 25 and pellets and of course the gun I thought they'd atleast give me what I ordered but no.

    Things I liked:

    Everything !! Light weight for all day shooting, smaller air reservoir that is very easy to fill to 3,000 PSI. Easy to change barrels, awesome instructions with DVD, adjustable trigger and adjustable stock lenght !!

    Things I would have changed:

    It should come with at least some open sights, other than that this gun is perfect !!

    What others should know:

    This is simply one of the most powerful, reliable, longer lasting .22 air rifles anyone can buy !! I bought mine in .22 with the extra open sights and the air force hand pump. This gun sounds extremely super loud with the 24 inches long barrel, this gun is meant to be fired at the maximum power level always !! I have two, my other one has a scope. For hunting small to medium game this is one of the best out there, period !! Buy it, you will fall in love wit this one !!
