Things I liked:

The gun is really accurate and has plenty of power . This will make a good hunting rifle and I think I will really like it especially the quick lever action .

Things I would have changed:

Maybe a little lighter trigger and a better check valve in air tube.

What others should know:

On second power setting with an 18.13 JSB my gun is putting out 967 FPS .

By Matt from USA on 2021-07-15 15:05:46

Things I liked:

Lever action - very fast followup shots -the looks of the gun- I did a 96 shot string on one fillup, with the wheel on full power, and the last shot was 742- up to around 70 shots, i was getting mid 800's (with some weird swings to the 700's), then it dropped to low 800's and then of course to 700's not long after (Is my powerwheel not working or something?)

Things I would have changed:

I'm also not getting anywhere near the claimed fps- i get between 740 and about 850 or so which i think is a pretty large swing.? I also don't think i should be getting anywhere near 90 shots per fill? (Note, i ran the pressure right down to the yellow to get this 96 shot string) Seems like maybe the wheel isn't going to full power? Not the best bench gun setup- hard to keep gun steady with lever action- but does suffice- Trigger mech kinda sloppy about 1/8 inch play back and forth and to the side- just feels sloppy- Safety doesn't work well either- found it doesn't like to stay on safety if moving the gun around, seems loose to me. FPS is all over the place, and nowhere near claimed 970- most all shots are between 740-850 or so- one shot will be like 830, then the next will be 795 or so, then 820, then 750- no real consistency at times (Maybe due to not sorting pellets? I dunno- something is causing swings) Unable to get good groupings when fps keeps changing in wild swings-

What others should know:

I had to base my ratings on how my rifle is performing right now- I have a hammer spring coming, so it might change the ratings significantly if it fixes the slower fps average, and especially if it fixes the wild swings in fps that happen fairly frequently making aiming hard to predict- the pellets shoot fairly spot on when I'm up around 840 fps, because that is mainly where i zero'd the scope- but then when the fps drops unexpectedly to say 760 or so, it requires a higher holdover, but you don't know when these drops will happen so it's hard to shoot an accurate string. Something doesn't seem right with the gun so far- I'd really like the fps to be in the 900's consistently- that would improve the accuracy a lot- if the curve isn't too jagged up and down. 840 just seems a tad slow for a .25 pellet . Accuracy right now i would have to give a 2 1/2 star because of the issues i noted

    Things I liked:

    This gun is a one stop deal. It's got variable power levels, accuracy, it's a repeater, has great looks, a solid feel and overall lots of proverbial and literal 'bang for your buck'. It has a few quirks, like loading the magazine pellets backwards and its weight, but these are overall rather trivial. FedEx delivered the first one with a broken stock, but PA promptly took it back and replaced it with another one. The cocking lever seemed a bit stiff at first. For a moment I thought they had sent me a springer, but after a dozen or so shots it loosened up a bit and the action is now quite smooth.

    Things I would have changed:

    The gun is a tad heavy. I'm not a hunter, but if I had to lug this around all day I'd probably hire a sherpa. With scope and magazine it probably weighs around ten pounds. I wish the plastic magazines were metal, but I havent had any problems and they seem pretty rugged.

    What others should know:

    I've been topping off the tank with a hand pump which is less difficult than I thought it would be, but it is a moderate workout. Being a left handed shooter, I wish the stock were more ambidextrous, but shooting it left handed has not been a problem. After zeroing the scope, I put five pellets in the same hole. The gun has moderate sound levels and I would call it borderline backyard friendly depending on the size of your yard. My DonnyFL hasn't arrived yet and I'm looking forward to it.

    Things I liked:

    Had the 22 cal for a little over 2 months. Really enjoy shooting the gun very accurate with most pellets and 23 grain 218 diam.slugs it is awesome. Glad I researched first it really helped with the power wheel settings

    Things I would have changed:

    Gun is very heavy great for now I shoot off bags 90 percent of time but to put in the wood a lighter gun makes more sense

    What others should know:

    First shot power wheel 1 click above lowest dog a 14.5 grain went supersonic and sounded like a 22 long rifle. Light pellets 1 click on low power. 18 grain one more click. 23 grain pellet between 1st and second dot. Slugs on the second dot power setting. At 50 yards they all hit in nearly the same place, with the slugs being the most accurate. 450 cc Cup lots of shots 40 with slugs 80 with light pellets

    Things I liked:

    Got a Refurb its perfect. Got an inexpensive Chinese compressor 45 seconds from in the yellow to full. Shooting pellets on low power about 80 shots! I Just shot 3 pellets from 14 to 22 grains one click up on the power wheel for the heavys still only one click above low and 3 groups you can cover with a quarter at 50 yards. Lever action smooth and a lot easier than the bolt action I had.

    Things I would have changed:

    Huge cylinder makes it heavy a carbon fiber cylinder would be nice

    What others should know:

    Pyramid took care of me. I started with a Hatsan Flash 1st one wouldn't hold air, second one bolt broke off. Full refund so I spent more for a nicer gun. I'm very happy!

    Things I liked:

    This is one of my favorite rifles, I would give it top billing in my gun safe but for my 270 Weatherby Magnum sharing the space. The action is smooth, its quiet, and accurate beyond what I expected. I mounted the ATN 4k 3-14 on mine, did the one shot zero (actually took 3 before I was satisfied), calibrated the ABL and made a 107 yd head shot on a rabbit with JSB Hades (25 Cal).

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger. A rifle of this calibre needs a better trigger. When I got mine the first stage was nonexistent, I've shot an Air Arms S510 for quite a while and this trigger is clunky in comparison. Lightening the trigger pull gave back the 1st stage but it still felt sloppy.

    What others should know:

    Buy it, this is a great rifle for the price point (even with the trigger issue)

    Things I liked:

    Very pretty gun, lever action is nice and smooth.

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine is tricky to load, would be great if the lever was retained in the fully open position. The power wheel is also hard to work with, I've had the power wheel lock on me when I'm trying to change the setting. I wish it had the option for open sights.

    What others should know:

    My Eagle Claw is not reliable, I'm unsure if I have a bad valve but the gun shoots about 50% of the time. The lever action works extremely well, but once I load a pellet in, half the time I get a *pfft* (not enough air) or a click. Doesn't matter what power level the gun is set on, still the same issue. Another thing is that I'm missing a screw on my side plate, it looks like someone forgot to put both screws in after greasing up the lever action inside the gun. Besides that, I have an early magazine (one with an O-ring around the drum) that's also pretty unreliable, but I have a newer magazine that works great (no O-ring). I thought about hunting with this gun, but I may just save up for a AirForce or Hatsan.

    Things I liked:

    Everything! This Rifle is a powerhouse and has so far shot very well with everything Ive ran through it light to heavy with pellets and slugs. Its easy to fill with air and easy to load magazines. Lever action is smooth and allows easy follow up shots. On full power Its definitely not the quietest gun out there but I live in the country so that doesnt matter much to me. It has a beautiful stock and is nicely finished. The safety is metal and works well. Its conveniently located but is still out of the way. Its deadly accurate as Ive stacked several mags of pellets in the same hole @70 yards. Its got some weight to it and feels like a rifle should (for me anyway). From a full charge @200 bar I put 48 shots through it at full power and still was in the upper middle of the green on the gauge. So far its been reliable, accurate and powerful. Definitely impressed!

    Things I would have changed:

    Really cant think of anything except I wish It had a bigger magazine capacity.

    What others should know:

    It might be a little heavy for some shooters.

    Things I liked:

    First of all - exemplary customer service from both PA and Air Venturi. My first order arrived with a stuck power adjuster. Within minutes of placing a call to customer support I had a replacement on the way AND a call from AV trying to resolve the issue. As for the gun - well made, very accurate and quite enough to be considered back yard friendly. I have shot it kneeling, from the shoulder and partially supported with 3 different loads at a max distance of 160 Ft, with sub one inch or better groups. At 160 ft on max power all three loads went through 1/8 inch plywood like it was paper.

    Things I would have changed:

    If there ever was a gun in need of a sling point... As is, if you plan on taking your gun on any armed hiking, a scabbard is the best way to go

    What others should know:

    The gun is long and with a scope mounted on the heavy side. While it balanced well (Sort of center a little forward of the air gauge) there is still a lot of mass upfront, so small framed shooters should keep that in mind.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think the air tank is SS not aluminum Wich adds to the weight. It's heavy even for me. Some pellets and slugs can fall out of the mag. Air venturi has yet to respond by email. I wish it came in .30

    What others should know:

    Mine came delivered in 1 day. But it was only shooting 40fpe Instead of sending it back I opened it up to find the hammer packed with grease. Overall it's a good gun. If urs comes like mine did send it back unless u really knw what ur doing!

    Things I liked:

    Despite the weight it balances well and and I have good experience when shooting offhand. Sure is nice not to have to wonder where you left your fill probe! I thought well this thing has a lot of power and what happens if I put across my hollow point in it? Well be warned that it will go supersonic and crack like a 22 long rifle. That's not really an issue if you turn the power wheel down to the very lowest setting you'll get about 10 to 12 foot pounds of energy. Go up one click and get about 22 foot pounds of energy. Go up one more click and shoot a 16 grain pellet at about 1100 ft per second. Think hades! I haven't tried this for accuracy yet. I guess I could always turn the power down a notch and keep it in the 850 to 975 fps range. Now when you move up to the 21 to 26 grain range the fourth position on the power wheel will put you right in The Sweet spot. I also bought a couple tins of the Seneca hunting pellet that weighs 28 and 1/2 grains. 880 fps... JSB Beast 835 fps!

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it so that projectiles don't fall back into the cocking mechanism. Be aware that you might have an issue while having the muzzle up and cycling the lever anything that doesn't stay inside the magazine could fall inside and it's not hard to fix but it is very inconvenient if you're in the woods. I really only see this issue with some projectiles that are less than 218 diameter skirts.

    What others should know:

    I thought I would try some slugs and the h&m 27 grain 218 diameter are moving at 930 ft per second! New line The jsb knockouts are 25.4 grain and our 217 diameter and our traveling at 950 ft per second! So you've got about 55 foot pounds of energy. there are some baffles in the shroud so shooting heavy pellets or slugs is very quiet. The power wheel is quite interesting, so even turning it up to five or 6 is the maximum power that I've used for 35 grains. So it looks like you could say that the zero position or lowest setting is 10 to 12 foot lbs. Each increment goes up another 10-ft pounds. There are colored dots at five locations. Zero is black. When you rotate to position 3 you'll see the red facing straight at you. then one more click the red will be off center and that is power level four and that is all you need for anything up to 22 grn. Moving up to power level 5 or 6 seems there's no further increase and probably just wasting air! Love this power!

    Things I liked:

    Like the looks of rifle. Gives you that old west lever action feel. Rifle has plenty of power. Was little disappointed in power level to start with, so sent to Will Piatt for a tune. He is amazing. Rifle shoots 38 grain slugs with power and accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make a single shot tray. When using slugs, have to be extremely careful so that slug does not drop into chamber. Have had to take apart twice to remove slug in mechanism.

    What others should know:

    If you want a devastating rifle, sent to Will. Shoots Seneca 43.2 grain pellets at just under 90 FPE. Use for slamming pigeons. Will be using to take out coyotes.

    Everything, the rifle is just cool It was the cocking leaver that made me want it size of the air cylinder is even bigger in the full length version. the color of the stock is very nice warm & rich / it comes with two magazines, but I bought several more for around 19. ea.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, deeper finish would be nice but that would make it cost more

    What others should know:

    should come with some pressure in the cylinder, I would take note where the pressure is and let it sit then check it later in case it may have a leak. gun is very cool , unless your are spoiled by the high end stuff Its definitely a pcp to have, I love it.
