    Things I liked:

    Accurate and not picky about pellets. Very little effort is required to pump just as advertised. Powerful enough to dispatch pretty much anything you want to with a brain shot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Difficult to adjust windage on factory sight. Needs a stronger magnet to hold mag and single shot tray in place.

    What others should know:

    Excellent air rifle and has instantly become my favorite squirrel gun. Has the accuracy and power of a decent PCP without needing all the extra stuff .

    Things I liked:

    The fact that the 1st and 15th pump take the same amount of effort is awesome, it threaded and the trigger isn't too bad for being a single stage non adjustable.

    Things I would have changed:

    The end cap on mine was pulling down the end of the barrel creating some really odd accuracy issues, I feel like this was a quality issue at the factory. Like the hole for the barrel in the receiver was drilled at an angle. Some days it shot great other days all I could get was minute of paper plate accuracy.

    What others should know:

    This is a slow down and take your time gun, if you try to pump this gun fast you're most likely going to prematurely wear out the pump linkages or end up bending something. That said, one pump per second at a steady pace is still pretty quick. Buy the new one, I went with a refurb, the pump arm was bent or twisted out of the box and the pump arm never closed all the way, sticking down about a quarter of an inch.

    Things I liked:

    Light weight rifle even with a scope. Verry accurate after cleaning beautiful wood although not sure what kind ? woodgrain with some swirly sections' looks nice, not knot holes. kind of like KOA wood ( wouldn't that be nice )

    Things I would have changed:

    confusing pump count maby some kind of counter that sharp edge in the pump guide area is a manufacturing deal we shouldn't have to deal with its part of fit & finish. a little beefer linkage in that area too, just looks flimsy. & that sharp edge on the end of the pump arm does it need to be at that sharp of an angle round em off like a blue streak its actually a sharp edge of wood.

    What others should know:

    if yours is catching in the area of that pump guide you can remove it with a DIAMOND Emory file run it laterally along that edge BOTH SIDES clean with a Q tip works best, there will be a few filings. relube & your good to go, don't pump while filing or you will bring filings into the pump cup area. then your going have problems ( Iv had to do this with several of my pumpers its a common problem try not to use sandpaper type Emory board as they always loose sand while doing this. try not to put the scope turret area above the loading port as it interferes with the magazine or just use higher mounts I personally don't like my scope verry high it throughs off the cheek piece and adds to hold over

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking rifle, the odb silencer I have fits perfectly. not as heavy as I thought it would be. wood is not as dark as I would have liked but ill change that later. all in all, a verry nice gun accuracy is great AFTER cleaning the barrel.

    Things I would have changed:

    Tell Senica to quit using house stain on their wood. I paint houses for a living I know what they're using 2nd one with the same finish , GRRRRR a little beefier metal on the pump arms & associated parts would be cool. just seems flimsy.

    What others should know:

    My barrel was FILTHY. literally pushed a wad of fur and junk out the barrel whats up with that ? (ie dust- metal filings- rust- & some kind of 3wt grease the barrel was fine after a good cleaning Afterwords it shot fine with amazing accuracy dime size groups at 30 yards with a scope shoot a couple cleaning wads threw it first to knock the big stuff out then a cleaning rod with a phosphor bronze brush then use your patches. even with all its faults I would still buy it again

    Things I liked:

    Great accuracy and power. I also like having a magazine and the ability to adjust the power of the shot easily depending on circumstances. Shooting rodents in the feed barn I want just enough power to get the job done. Then outside enough to reach out an touch vermin at up to 50 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    Well the bolt system that holds the wood pump handle on needs to be removed and the screws need to have loctite applied or they will just keep coming loose.

    What others should know:

    I would recommend one of these to my friends. Accuracy is top notch..

    Things I liked:

    Great power for a multi-pump airgun. It can shoot .22 caliber Baracudas at 612 FPS for about 17.5 FPE! That's unmatched by anything in its class that I know of. Accurate enough to hunt at 40 yards and not very pellet picky. It pumps more easily than Crosman products.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's significantly heavier than other multi-pump guns. Not like a 10-pound Hatsan 135, but a good 2x the weight of a Daisy 880, for example. The pumping, while relatively easy, is noisy without any obvious way to quiet it down.

    What others should know:

    It's a great value for about $200!

    Things I liked:

    Well made and powerful air rifle. I purchased mine in .22. The iron sights are fine, and it shoots straight enough for my needs. The sights were loose out of the box, so be sure to go through the rifle and check all of the screws. The pumping action is smooth and very easy to work, and you can get lost in how many pumps you've done because the 2nd pump is as easy as the 15th. You can shoot this rifle with 1 pump if you so desire. The wood furniture is nice. Trigger is fine. Very handle little air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Screws might be loose. Wish it came with a peep sight instead. Maybe some way to track how many pumps you'd pumped.

    What others should know:

    I think for the 200 buck price you have a very good and solid air rifle. No need to buy a scope, or a pump or bicycle compressors. Pump and shoot. Check the gun over to make sure no screws are loose. If you grew up shooting pigeons with your favorite pump gun, this one will be a whole lot of fun.

    Things I liked:

    The wood feels really nice, the accuracy (after a handful of shots) was really impressive. Feels quality.

    Things I would have changed:

    Quality control is lacking. Mine would not dump all its air, it was retaining air after just 9 pumps, but every once in a while it would work right for one shot. I took it apart enough to check the hammer, it was not moving smooth, very gritty and rough inside, the hammer was binding up as it traveled down to hit the valve. Thankfully pyramid air is good about returns.

    What others should know:

    A little on the heavy side, but also more solid feeling so I wouldn't say it is bad, I liked it. Check all screws and bolts, use lock tight.

    Things I liked:

    It's a variable pumper (I LOVE variable pump pneumatic airguns)! Just the way it's packaged is indicative of its super-high quality, but on top of that, it's: Easy to pump. Accurate. The most powerful (fpe) pumper now available (it's both easier to pump and much more powerful than the Benjamin 392s or 397s, both of which I have for comparison). Great weight, contributing to fine accuracy. Comfortable comb. Good looking. In many ways, it's very much like an excellent .22 LR (although there's no need to pump up your .22 to get it to shoot). I still love my Benjamin Variable Pump Air Rifles, but in all honesty, I'd have to say this very probably is the best pumper now available. Although I have only the .22 version (so far), I'd say the same goes in .177 caliber as well. I did get one with a wonky pump mechanism that had to be returned, but the replacement was and is a truly exceptional air rifle in every way.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing needs to be changed, but If it was at all feasible for the manufacturer, I'd absolutely love a lower price; for instance, I was able to score the .177 caliber Benjamin Pumper recently for only $175 bucks, which was a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. This air rifle would be a steal at that priced! Having said this, I also think the Dragonfly Mk2 is worth every penny of it's full cost (which was $199 and change when I made my purchase).

    What others should know:

    If you're a fan of variable pump pneumatic air rifles, I think this offering from Seneca/Air Venturi is the best now available, bar none. The Benjamin Variable Pump Air Rifles are the nearest things to it in terms of quality and performance, but in my opinion, this blows them totally out of the water -- It's made of wood and metal, it's very attractive, it's extremely comfortable to shoot, easy to power up (if you can pump it once, you can put in all fifteen), it has nothing preventing or interfering with the use of the accurate iron sights and is highly accurate. Considering it costs about the same as either Benjamin, it's no contest: this is by far the better buy. HIGHLY recommended!

    Things I liked:

    I had returned my first Dragonfly Mk2 due to a sear engagement issue. I chose not to replace it because the pumping mechanism was too herky jerky. Months later I ordered a second one based on positive PA blog reports. My second one has a very smooth and easy pumping cycle. I do strongly suggest buying the 10 shot test option PA offers. This test involves lots of pumping by a PA technician which should prevent your getting one with pumping mechanism problems. Do tighten all screws before shooting. This rifle is fun to shoot, has aesthetic appeal and is accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing for this price range.

    Things I liked:

    I liked the fact it has a lot of metal construction, in .22 cal, a nice trigger, threaded barrel, single shot tray and 7 shot magazine. It is accurate @ 30yds plus. It is a solid all around gun and probably the best multi pump available. It's very easy to pump, even though it is weird and takes getting used to. It has decent power for what it is. I've taken a few squirrels with it at 10 pumps and find no need to go higher, in fact I haven't tried it at 15 yet. All things considered I like it way better than my Benjamin 392 and for less money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really. Wish it was american made, but not much is anymore.

    What others should know:

    I was really not wanting to like this gun because it seemed gimmicky. Once I picked one up, I sort of liked it and once I got to try it before buying, I had to have it. I'm a sucker for multi pump guns (brings back childhood). The gun is heavy for some, but I like that. The finish on stock is good, the fit between the pump handle and gun when closed could be better(not a deal breaker for me). Pumping takes getting used to, almost more difficult to get open all the way than it is to close (gets better as it breaks in). Very easy to pump. I am very happy with this purchase and would buy again. I might also pick up the .177 model too.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy is very good using iron sights at 10m. I have not yet taken it out further. Very impressed with how easy it was to start nailing bullseyes. Pumping is smoothing out nicely after only a couple dozen shots. The first pellet I tried was the crosman 14.3 gr HP and so far it has been doing very well with these on only 3 pumps.

    Things I would have changed:

    Metal parts came pretty dirty and screws were not too tight on the forend. I cleaned it all quite well and tightened screws. I also gave it a little pellgun oil on the pivot points.

    What others should know:

    Definitely seems worthy of the price. This is my first multi-pump and I must say it is quite a lot easier to get nice groups then my break-barrels.

    Things I liked:

    Wood stock is good quality & nice finish. Fairly quiet for backyard plinking. Threaded muzzle adapter is a definite A++. Lightweight. Magazine seems well made. Serves well as a close range (<25 yds) pest controller with no scope.

    Things I would have changed:

    A rear sight that is easier to adjust windage. I wish the instructions mentioned the difficult pumping action break-in period. I am overall pleased with the Mk2, but after 2-3 backyard shooting sessions, I feel like it's value is not quite $200. Wait for a sale or use some bullseye bucks.

    What others should know:

    Don't expect expedited delivery with the free shipping. Mine took seven weeks (to Hawaii). Pumping action is extremely sticky when brand new. There is a definite break-in period it to loosen up. The forward stock does not align flush with the aft stock. I'm not sure if there is a way to adjust this. If not, it will drive those with OCD crazy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Front sight was too tall and did not work with traditional square notch rear. Stock finish was not great but could be sanded and oil finish when I'm bored this winter.

    What others should know:

    Bolt needs cocked to get hammer off valve in order to pump (or Read the manual), Pumping effort remained the same. Easy to loose track of how many pumps as each one feels like the last.

    Smooth pumping once broken-in (25 rounds at 15 pumps. Accurate & Powerful in .22 caliber. Comfortable stock, nice wood, fit and finish.

    Things I would have changed:

    I HATE the stinking fiber optic sights, garbage, plain blued steel sights with no side-to-side sight picture slop would be great. Stuff those fiber optic sights where..well..you know where, fiber optic sights belong on toys.

    What others should know:

    The pumping function takes some getting use to compared to traditional style pumpers, but once you get the rhythm, they are easy to use.
