    Things I liked:

    I like that all you have to do is pump the gun when you need more air and that it is not very hard to pump to fill. Also love the side cocking lever. Love the accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    If the gun can be a bit lighter somehow.

    What others should know:

    I would say this is worth the money and on a different level compare to break barrels and similar products to break barrels. You do not need to buy an air tank or an air compressor machine is a big plus but just be ready to pump the gun quite a lot. Not really a gun for bench shooting and plinking but can be done if you want to pump a lot unless you already have an air tanks and air compressor machine to help you refill without having to pump. But the whole point of this gun is so you do not need to have those two things just get air in the gun. All you have to do is pump some. Saves you some money. Most important is do a lot of research about this gun before you buy.

    Things I liked:

    The on board pump is a great feature in the field and has been reliable for me so far

    Things I would have changed:

    Instead of high low settings how about a regulator like the air venturi. That's what this really is.

    What others should know:

    I've been getting consistent poi out to about 60yrds with 18-21.5 grain pellets if I maintain 3000-2500psi

    Things I liked:

    Great idea

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a new air rifle since I doubt this will get fixed

    What others should know:

    Great out of the box, put a nice scope on it, and zeroed it in. Let it sit in the corner with some air in the tank, and about a month later, I saw a squirrel that needed to meet Jesus. It wouldnt let me pump up. I would open the handle and I couldn't put the handle back down until I expended all the air in it. Its like the air spilled out into another area and kept the handle from locking back in position. Im sure it was a seal problem but Im not savvy enuff to rip it apart and fix it.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy, low noise level, side lever ease of use for repeat shots, sling swivel studs.

    Things I would have changed:

    The pump, which is useless. Easier fill port location; under the pump lever, is just complicated. Onboard fill gauge, which is tiny, near unreadable. No iron sights on the weapon. I like to have them for back up if there is an issue. Magazine which you can't seem to refill unless it is totally empty. If I take one or two shots at a critter, I want to load a full mag for next time; you have to empty the whole mag because of how it's spring powered, before reloading. That you can't load the magazine into the gun without chambering a round. If you just insert the magazine, the side lever arm is extended, you must chamber a round to close the lever arm.

    What others should know:

    The pump is not reliable. I purchased this as my first PCP rifle; figuring I could use the onboard pump. Nope. I wasn't even finished one tin of 200 pellets and the rifle was having serious issues. Leaking air, pump sticking open, pump sticking closed. In talking with the manufacturer about a possible repair, they seem to have lots of trouble with this gun if people use the on board pump, and said don't use it unless it's an emergency. I purchased a hand pump rather than a compressor. A few more weeks down the road, this seems 1) have stopped all the problems with the rifle 2) is not as difficult a process as I thought it would be. I am using this as a varmint gun, for which it is effective, but I'm only filling it up once or twice a day. I am adjacent to a farm, but still in an area where noise is a concern. Had I known the pump was useless I would have purchased a differed gun. There is no 'easy way' into the PCP world yet. You just need to get all the gear.

    Things I liked:

    When new, it works. Works well when new. Piece of junk actually. Sent in once for warranty and they fixed it. I wasn't spending $60 again in shipping for 2nd time. Tore it apart myself the 2nd time. Im a machinist andhave worked on many more difficult weapons than this prior to this. But this is a total POS! DO NOT spend your hard earned dollars on this! Great concept inall actuallity, BUT, total junk. Bad design to just change a few seals and things are so locktited its not funny.

    Things I would have changed:

    Design..... Concept good.... Design BAD! Ive owned this gun for a year or so and been hosed by it to the tune of $400 back then. If it was $25 dollars I would say the same thing!

    What others should know:

    Save your money! DO NOT PURCHASE! This thing is born to break down! You will have headaches. No way to find parts. Total fail.

    Things I liked:

    This gun is perfect. Greg helped me decide to get this gun and he was right. It only took 10 shots to put a 5 shot group in the bullseye. GREAT at $300 2 mags no scope but I suggest you get a multi focus multi power for it. I also bought a Hatsan .25 cal break barrel which Greg also helped me pick out. I love the customer service it's second to none. Buy from Pyramyd and you'll be really happy you did

    Things I would have changed:

    You have to get used to pumping it up but if you have a tank or compressor that's great. 60 to 80 pumps and your at the 3000 psi range and you get up to 20 shots all very accurate

    What others should know:

    It's a big gun not for kids

    Things I liked:

    I like the on-board pump feature, you always have air when you need it. The rifle is well made and is low maintenance.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would include a T-handle allen wrench that is long enough to reach the set screw that empties the compressed air tank. None of the wrenches included fit the compressed air tank screw. I always like to release the stored air when I put the rifle away and it is aggravating to go find a wrench to fit. Another thing is the scope mounting rails should be picatinny compatible.

    What others should know:

    After mounting and zeroing my scope I consistently placed 10 .22 cal pellets in a one inch dot at 25 yards time after time. Trust me you will not be disappointed. You can spend a lot more for other products but if you are looking for overall value for your money spent this is the one for you.

    Things I liked:

    I have the .25 version. It is powerful and accurate .

    Things I would have changed:

    I have seen several videos online where the onboard pump has failed. It seems that it may be either a design or manufacturing flaw. I hope that this issue has been addressed and corrected. I have had trouble using my hand pump to charge the gun. Not sure whether the problem is with the gun or fitting that came with it, but the fitting does not seem to connect very well when inserted. It has popped out under high pressure.

    What others should know:

    Watch the online reviews before you order this gun so you can make an informed decision about buying it. If I knew then what I know now I probably would have ordered a different gun.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy and onboard pump capability eliminating the expensive accessories to support a PCP air gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have scored the Aspen at 5, but the pump problems brought it to a 4. Hopefully the warranty repair costs to Air Venturi will encourage them to light a fire under their Chinese manufacturer to engineer and distribute a pump and a pump repair kit that will fix the pump problems once and for all.

    What others should know:

    The Aspen is absolutely incredible! The accuracy of this gun is an order of magnitude above anything my 4 springers can achieve. I'm shooting 5 shot 1/4" groups at 25 yards, 3/8" at 50, and even a 3 shot group measuring 5/8" at 80 yards. I chose the JSB 18.13 gr. Jumbo Heavy as my gauge pellet and set the hammer spring to average 860 ft/sec on the high setting zeroing my scope at 15 yards. At low setting I shoot the JSB 13.43 gr. Jumbos and and the Crosman 14.3 gr hollow points and at 25 yards they hit just below where the gage pellet hits on high power. My gun is not pellet picky at all. On low power I've only found 1 pellet that won't shoot well in this gun. I shoot lighter pellets on low and high for targets 25 yards and less. I do not shoot the lighter shuttlecock shaped pellets on high beyond 25 yards because at 900 ft/sec and over they seem to destabilize and spray the target. The 14.3 Crosman HP hits 963 ft/sec. I'd buy an Aspen again despite the pump.

    Things I liked:

    Everything! This weapon has it all... and is powerful. The pump action is smooth, but can be a beast to pump 40 times after shooting a few rounds. On the bright side...it keeps you in shape! The magazine works like a dream...just buy 4 or 5 of them. Rapid reload is a must for second or third shot needs...sometimes you just miss the target and need another shot quickly and this gives you that opportunity. Don't let that fool you though...this thing is accurate with the right scope. I have owned this beauty for two years and have no failures. I had to buy another one for my son!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.....the price has come down since my purchase ($4000) two years ago!

    What others should know:

    Great gun at the price.... no tank or pump required. Have fun!!

    Good looking and feeling rifle but the pump needs work. I pumped my rifle up to 3400 psi two times before the pump broke. It is on it was back to pyramid air they paid for return shipping. They are always great to deal with.

    Things I would have changed:

    Picatenny rail instead of Dovetail.

    What others should know:

    It is imperative that you oil the pump frequently. The manufacturer supplied you with oil because it requires it.

    The gun has operated perfect right out of the box. I have shot over 600 pellets and gun has been very accurate. The thing i like best is the onboard pump and how easy it is to pump. If the pump is kept oiled it will work just fine.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see a larger air cylinder.

    What others should know:

    For the money this rifle is a good choice and it comes with a year warranty.

    Things I liked:

    It's awesome. Easy to pump and load. Very accurate and quite. Bought it mainly for self defense at home for wife. She doesn't like the sound of the powder burners. We went pop can shooting and she loves it. Not to heavy. Put red dot sight on it and very nice. Take 4 shots and 10 pumps back to full power. Love the look of it too

    Things I would have changed:

    Don't think would change anything. Maybe put rail on it so don't have to find scope that takes 3/8's dovetail

    Things I would have changed:

    the hump seizes up after only 500 shots, kept it lubed up and everything but it also is making a hissing noise when pumped and it is impossible to work the pump.

    What others should know:

    Spend some extra money on a better rifle, it is not worth it. trying to get a refund or fixed and have not heard back.

    Things I liked:

    First one leaked lealy bad, sent it back and thru there Awesome customer care got sent out a new one, had to wait three weeks thru the whole process only because of the China 19 epidemic but I can't say it enough the customer care was "FANTASTIC". I've had the gun for four weeks and ended up spending more moneys on there awesome selection of pellets and am waiting for a New scope. It was pumped up to 2000 psi a week ago and it's still at 2000 psi. Now I know some of you are like it's supposed to hold air and Yes your right but having a leaker at first I am now a happy camper.

    Things I would have changed:

    Now understand I'm only a month into this investment so I will do a follow-up review in six months or so.

    What others should know:

    This Seneca Aspen is an excellent shooter at 50 yards and I'm hitting paper out to 100 yards but at 30 yards it's a Tac Driver. Had a 3-9x50 scope on it and am waiting for a new 6-24x50. I Love Love Love this rifle, real easy to pump all the way to 3000 psi. and the hande is f**king awesome out in the field.

    Things I liked:

    This is a tac driver at 50 yards with quarter size spread at 100 yards. Love love love this set up and the handle for carrying around is awesome and works well as a hand prop when shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe fill the stock up with foam so it's not so hollow sounding.

    What others should know:

    This is my first pcp and will probably be my last and for the money spent I can't complain. Although this is the second one, the first one leaked air badly and an O ring cracked off, I'm thinking maybe it was sitting in a hot spot at the warehouse or was an old one,either way Pyramyd Air's customer care was Awesome and made the exchange without Any Catches other than COVID19 delays with time but that was not there fault. I am a Happy Camper and can't wait to go out and shoot me up some dinner,lol.

    What others should know:

    I asked five different people about the pumping leak problems from the past and they All said it was fixed but I am still two weeks later waiting for the exchange I made five days after recieving my first rifle that LEAKED! Because of covid19 I have to wait longer they say, I am hoping they send me a good one this time because if the second one leaks I will return for a FULL REFUND.....

    Things I liked:

    Awesome air gun did not expect it to be as nice in the hand as it was. Did not take long to zero in the scope, very very accurate rifle at fifteen yards, couldn't wait to get to the range but will have to wait because I got a leaker and am sending it back and because of this COVID 19 bullshit it will probably be a month before I get my new one.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing so far...

    What others should know:

    I asked the guy's in the message box five different times how many leakers and every answer was "NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE". So either they were just telling me what I wanted to heir so as to SELL me, I'll never know.
