    Things I liked:

    Tons of features, accurate once dialed in.

    Things I would have changed:

    As already stated multiple times the stock is sketchy. I was already prepared for that when it arrived however it was slightly worse than expected. First of all the stock had scratches and other cosmetic defects. Second its very flimsy, you can actually squeeze the plastic by hand and have it distort on the forward portion of the stock where the pump enters.

    What others should know:

    This is a fixed 4x scope, save yourself some money and go with the Nova Freedom and buy the scope you want.

    Things I liked:

    Great Shooter, easy to pump and fill from tank.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger has a little side to side slop....doesn't affect action. I adjusted for quick reset and break. A more precision trigger pin would be great.

    What others should know:

    Great Value. Fun to shoot and well balanced. I added a Clearidge Optics Ultra 3-9. Fantastic Lightweight scope.

    Things I liked:

    How quiet it is, accuracy, ease of use. Price for a PCP Ability to use the pump to add air and how easy the pump is to operate.

    Things I would have changed:

    I'm trying to think of something.

    What others should know:

    I bought a refurbished Seneca Aspen so I paid the $20 for 20 where they sight it in and test fire the rifle. I wanted anything obviously wrong to come up while they still had it. This air gun is the quietest air gun I've ever fired. My wife says she doesn't know when I shoot it as she doesn't hear it and I usually shoot it in the backyard right outside the kitchen window. I have a Gamo Rapter Whisper and a Benjamin Titan that are a LOT louder than the Seneca Aspen. She can be in the bedroom when I fire those and she hears them. All three of these air guns are 22 cal. Of course having a 10 shot magazine doesn't hurt.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I have wanted a pcp pellet gun for a long time. When I seen this gun I was overjoyed. The onboard pump is the main reason I bought it. The accuracy is great and the number of shots per pumping up is consistent with the video on the pyramid air web site. So far it is very tolerant of different pellets. The rotary magazine gave me some troubles. I got very good support from tech service. The magazine seemed a little to tight in the gun and did not want to rotate consistently. they told me to loosen the center screw a little bit but that did not work. They are sending me a new mag. I am going to order another just for a spare. The scope is average but does a decent job. I might upgrade it later. If I had pyramid air test fire before shipping they might have found the magazine flaw and corrected it before shipping.

    Things I would have changed:

    Possibly the magazine design

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This gun is so fun to shoot. It takes only 70 pumps to hit the 3500 mark. Then after 5 shots I'll pump it 12-15 times and she's back to full power. This is all on low pressure setting. That's the only setting I use. On low she's dishing out 17-19 flbs. depending on the pellet choice. On high power she's putting out 28-29 flbs. It blows all my other guns away on accuracy. I have a hard time putting the Aspen down. It's a blast to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    For the price, I wouldn't change one thing. I'd also pay $700.00 for this gun. It's unbelievable.

    Things I would have changed:

    Fix the pumps in them i guess, im waiting on the third replacement

    What others should know:

    I love this rifle my first pcp, but im on the third replacement there is something wrong with their pumps, i want so bad for one to be ok its a nice piece

  • 2.0 2.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This gun was definitely accurate. I had 3 rounds touching in a 1" black circle at 30 yds. using H&N Hunter Extreme.22. @ roughly 3000 PSI.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the pump handle more narrow so the gun would fit into a soft case with scope mounted.

    What others should know:

    With a scope mounted the gun will not fit in a standard soft gun case. I think because of the pump handle. I sent it back because the pump had some intermittent problem, would lose resistance while pumping, then mysteriously start working again. Otherwise I would have rated 5 stars.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I think it is essential to be able to re-charge while away from home/base camp, so the ability to top-off the pressure by pumping is a great selling point. The scope was easily zeroed and sharp. The trigger is a light, crisp break. All in all a nice package.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would buy a larger caliber, if I was doing it over again.

    What others should know:

    If you regularly use the pressure port, it is in a rather inconvenient location. This is good for protecting it, but makes it a chore to re-charge with a hose.

    Things I liked:

    This is my first PCP air rifle and it's been a great experience. I wanted to get into PCP air rifles but I did not initially want to spend all the money in getting a tank or compressor just to experience the PCP culture. I purchased a Leapers UTG 4-16x44 scope and zeroed it in. Once I repositioned my scope and rezeroed again, it has been super accurate. I came from using a Benjamin Vaporizer break barrel so this Aspen is like a dream! I have played with the PSI and found that starting at 3200 PSI, I can get a full 10 accurate rounds then pump for 35-40 times to get me back to 3200 PSI. The pellets I was recommended by Pyramyd Air was the H&N Baracuda Match domed .22 21.14gr. This is the pellet I used to zero in my scope. Love the pellet! Great for hunting/pest control. A little on the expensive side for plinking metal or paper targets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lower the price and not include the scope.

    What others should know:

    Experiment with the high and low. At first, I thought everything should be on high. I actually like the low setting for plinking and still great for up to 50 yards for small pests. When I need to change it to the high setting, I just use one mildot above the mildot I used for low setting. Make sure if you upgrade your scope and the scope mounts are picatinny, get the UTG dovetail to picatinny snap in adapters. For plinking, I use the Crosman Premier domed .22 14.3gr. and just sight in using the 2nd mildot up on the crosshair (since I zeroed in using the heavier Baracuda Match). I use small spinning steel targets (quarter size) at 35 yards... very happy with the accuracy. !00% accuracy for the 10 shots.

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    All in one product - quiet. Pumping isn't too hard - a bit easier than using my hand pump and way more convenient. Seems to be very accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Include better scope or price the gun without a scope added.

    What others should know:

    Gun is a bit heavier than expected and is quieter than expected - love the bolt action - but it takes (way) more pumping than previously reported - took me at least 130 pumps to initially get from 1500psi to 3300psi - think mine has a slow air leak (lost 500 psi in 10 days), need to have it checked out. I tend to shoot 3-5 shots, then pump 20 times or more to get back to 3300psi - try to keep 2600-3300psi shooting range. Scope is ok at best.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I've had my Seneca for a few weeks now and it is the best air rifle I have ever owned. It is accurate enough that I have managed to score dime sized groups at 25 yards. The self contained pump allows me to keep the air pressure in the "sweet spot" for accuracy. The included scope is sufficiently accurate for close-range plinking and seems to hold zero very well, although I may be in the market for something with a little more magnification when squirrel season rolls around.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only shortfall I can find with the design of this rifle is the pump handle. When I go to lock it in, there is a little side to side slack in the handle which allows the handle to move around and release the handle causing it to pop out and if you are carrying the rifle by the handle, the stock could hit the ground. I fixed mine by attaching one of those silicone "bumpers" that you put on kitchen cabinet doors to the inside of the stock just below the lock button. This has completely solved that problem. It is for this design oversight that I gave the Seneca Aspen 4 stars instead of 5.

    What others should know:

    I think this rifle is an excellent first introduction into PCP air-gunning and my experience with Pyramid Air assures that I will be a repeat customer.

    Things I liked:

    Trigger is great. It is rare that I don't need to do anything to improve one. Hefty gun, doesn't feel flimsy or cheap.

    Things I would have changed:

    Magazine is quirky, can't be topped off. I contacted Pyramid and got no help with it. You should have a spare.

    What others should know:

    Pumping effort is significant, but with a little practice is very manageable. I'm 66 with recent shoulder repair, never had great upper body strength, and it's no problem.

    Things I liked:

    why didn't they think of this earlier? It's awesome, accurate, and a ton of fun. mine is in 22 but I'm going to order one for my daughter in 25. accuracy really surprised me. JSB extras in one hole at 25 yds.

    Things I would have changed:

    use a male quick attachment for filling the probe sucks.

    What others should know:

    Great for introducing new shooters to PCP. Handy for those prepper people. order an extra magazine with it you'll need it.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This is my first experience with a pcp air rifle and i can say switching from break barrels to pcp is the best upgrade i could have made when it comes to performance and accuracy. This rifle is great because it has a built in pump. That is the reason i decided to make the jump because i didn't have the money to buy a good pcp and a tank and the thought of the hassle to carry it around was a turn off. I found that jsb rs pellets do nickle sizes holes at 35 yards on a bench easy. And im no marksman but on high power this rifle can reach out and take doves no problem 91 yards away(it took me 6 shots but i finally hit him) Im confident that once i get better this rifle could do 5inch groups at 100 with the right conditions maybe smaller.

    Things I would have changed:

    I had the rifle for 2 and 1/2 weeks and I started having problems with it about 2 weeks into having it I noticed that when I tried to pump it sometimes it wouldn't let me pull the pumping arm up it felt like something was sucking the plunger back down and I couldn't figure out what it was I had to let out all the air out of the tank and start completely empty and then the pump was back to normal and then about two and a half weeks into having The Airgun I went to pump it went to raise the arm and all I heard was a snap the pumping arm broke where it meets the Piston to pump so now I have to send it back and wait a long time it's so disappointing knowing that it broke so easily and I don't even use it everyday I use it only on Saturdays maybe for 3 hours.

    What others should know:

    If you want to make the jump from springers to PCP rifles this is the gun to do it for beginners you have so many ways to adjust the power and the hammer tension the combinations are endless and how many pellets were accurate through this gun I'm surprised it's not picky even with my bad experience with a breaking I still am getting a replacement of the same rifle I wouldn't trade it for a different one.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy is excellent. 1" group at 30 yards was simple. A good shooter would no doubt do better. I put on a Nikon scope. Light weight. Pumping is easy - IF you do it correctly. First, realize that the pump needs to break in (or so it seemed to me). Probably I had to do 150 pumps before it started to feel good. Second, use long smooth complete strokes, they don't have to be very fast, just steady. 80 pumps from empty to full pressure (3000 psi is as far as I wanted to go). 10 rounds then 35 - 40 pumps to recharge, shooting on low power.

    Things I would have changed:

    Pellets jam! I have had pellets from the magazine get jammed four times. Nothing unusual was happening, just it was not possible to push the reload handle home. The pellet was jammed so that the magazine could not be removed and the gun could not fire. By wiggling the magazine, and using a cleaning rod to push the pellet back, I was able to free it - on three occasions. On the fourth occasion - it was really stuck. I tried everything I could think of, but could not get it out. Eventually, the small, thin piece of metal connecting the cocking handle to the piston broke - metal fatigue - I was not being a gorilla. It's not even steel, it's a cheap metal alloy. It should be stainless steel. Now the gun is a brick and I am sending it back for repair. I've only had it two weeks. I think it is a design flaw that the pellets jam and are not easily removed, and it is a manufacturing flaw that they used cheap alloy instead of stainless steel for the part that broke.

    What others should know:

    Buy an extended warranty if you get this gun. The pump handle is supposed to lock into place and you are supposed to be able to carry it using the handle. Don't! The lock is not reliable. If you do carry like this, then always double/triple check the lock is really secure, otherwise you will drop the body of the gun as soon as you pick it up by the handle. I still really like it - it's my first PCP.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it so you could hook a bottle up to it while you shot.

    What others should know:

    It take around 150 pumps to fill this rifle from zero psi not 60-70. From 3000 psi it takes 60-70 to reach max pressure and I think some are misunderstanding that. You get about 600 psi for every 20 strokes.
