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 .

Things I liked:

I like a lever action. Just want one that works.

Things I would have changed:

Make sure the gun works before you sell it. This is the second one for me. The first one lasted 4 shots before it stopped working. The second one, which was a new replacement of the first one, lasted one shot.

What others should know:

This is not my first air gun. I have a substantial collection of them. This is my last Seneca Eagle Claw. Twice burned, forever learned.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate and very hard-hitting. Mine's worked flawlessly since I received it last fall.

    Things I would have changed:

    The manometer, or whatever it's called, can be hard to see whilst filling...

    What others should know:

    This will penetrate more wood than you thought possible with an airgun. Be careful, at first.

    Things I liked:

    I like the way it looks and feels, shoots nice when it works.

    Things I would have changed:

    Test then before you send them, it would save you money on having a bad one sent back to you and you shipping one that you think works another.

    What others should know:

    I am on my second Eagle Claw that did not work. and the first one I paid $10.00 for 10 shots. That was a waste of money, it did not hold air. The second one did not take a charge, I would stop there but it looks like it would be a fun gun to shoot if I can get one that works. So they are sending me one more. I will see what happens with this when I get it.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate and the idea of a lever action

    Things I would have changed:

    The stock is way too short I would have to modify that. The magazines are not reliable and cause FTF. A bit on the loud compared to a .25 Benjamin maruder.

    What others should know:

    If the magazines get updated it would be a keeper.

    Things I liked:

    Well I got my eagle Claw from Pyramid Air, I paid the $10.00 for the 10 shot test. That was a waste of money, the gun does not hold air. I, filled it to about 1,800 PSI and when I bleed the fill line the gun empty all the air, I tried it two times and both times all the air drained out of the gun. I am waiting for a call back for some help. This is the third time I bought from Pyramid Air and the second time I got a gun that had a problem. I hate waiting to receive something I spent a lot of money on and when it comes I have to let it sit around waiting for someone to let me know what to do with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have not had a chance to check the gun so I would not know if I would make any changes.

    What others should know:

    Check everything when you first get it. Put it through all the tests you can.

    Things I liked:

    I bought one to hunt rats with my brother, we shared and so my brother liked it so much that he had me order one just like it for him. Night vision scope and all. Do I need to tell you more? We love it. Very accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if it would be a couple pounds lighter, especially with a three pound scope on it. Other then that I wouldn't change a thing

    Things I liked:

    .25 cal version....Functional shroud lowers the bark of this significantly considering the power available. I tested it with some 47 grain slugs after receiving it. (note the first one arrived with a broken stock and air gauge) Turned the power wheel to max and 885, 882, 874. High of 81.73 ft lbs. This was right out of the box no cleaning or anything. JSB heavies clocked in at 1011, and 1004 for 77.16 ft lbs. Its nice getting something that performs above the expected 70 or so ft lbs. No accuracy tests I was just using a chrono and making sure the rifle works since I had a bad experience with the first one showing up broken.

    Things I would have changed:

    There is obviously a weak spot in the stock where the receiver ends and grip starts. The wood there is very thin and prone to breaking. I only know this because fedex managed to break the first one in this area, when I looked at the way it broke it can be attributed to the thin wood and machine work done to make the receiver join with the wood stock. Its thin here so take care to not stress your rifle in this area. The cocking lever is fairly stiff and nothing like the video of Tyler reviewing the carbine version from Dec 2019. Lever almost identical to my sumatra as far as stiffness goes. Make the magazines easier to unload. Currently have to press onto the center near where you load a pellet to engage a release which allows the mag to turn.

    What others should know:

    It's a very good looking rifle and holds well. Delivers in the power, adjustability, looks, feel, fun (likely accuracy did not test this yet) departments.

    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.
