    Things I liked:

    Very comfortable for both left handed and right handed shooters.

    Things I would have changed:

    Power goes to low to be useful for much other than shoring paper.

    What others should know:

    The lever action opens harder then you would think and closer very easily.

    Things I liked:

    The lever action. The power, once I did surgery on it. The power wheel. The delivery time (one day). The shot count. The lever action. beautiful and wood stock. Pyramid airs email respond time

    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.

    Things I liked:

    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.

    Things I liked:

    Love the look and feel. Light weight even with scope. Very accurate and I love the fact I can adjust the power. First one I received would not hold air. Pyramid Air took very good care of me! Returned and received a new gun in less than a week!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing at the time

    What others should know:

    This lever action is very smooth. It feeds with zero issues. Excellent choice if your a airgun hunter.

    Things I liked:

    I have the .25 caliber Seneca. I like the looks of the gun as well as the weight and feel when aiming. It is a bit front heavy but in a minor fashion. Mine came with the power wheel set with the dot at mid range so as such I Filled it with air from the factory sent yellow green line up to the green red line using my hand pump. It gave me a good workout but after about 230 pumps I got it to 3,000 psi. After putting the scope on and getting it sighted in at 33 yards I was able to keep all the shots in the ten ring - in the size of a dime actually. The power is enough to send a 25 grain pellet through a 2 X 6 and half an inch into another one behind it. I like the power and accuracy !! I like the ease of loading the pellets and the way the magazine works in this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger pull is a bit heavy but breaks crisp - make it lighter and keep the crispness ! Put numbers on the magazine to indicate shots left.

    What others should know:

    This gun with its lever action works just great. The lever action is solid and easy to use. The .25 is a great hunting gun. I easily got 24 shots off before I noticed a slight drop off in power.

    Things I liked:

    Looks good, feels good, power it's a blast to shoot. The rifle has taken the lives of 65+ thirteen lined ground squirrels and has cycled over 3500 pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trigger.. my adjustment screw broke out the first time I looked at it.. makes me a better shot with other guns I guess. theres a + to everything lol

    What others should know:

    It's heavy had to condition my arms to be able to cycle a full mag into a pop can free hand at 50 yards.. again + side all my other firearms feel lighter. Words of caution don't try to load pellets in to the breach use mags! Can easily drop a pellet past the seater You won't be a happy camper when 25 grains of lead sit between the hammer and valve. The rifle is most accurate with the 34g jsb mk2 on max power but they load a little tight in the magazines and you can feel them squeezing throu the breach seal. So I've been using the 25g jsb with the power wheel set close to the first mark before max with good results they get a little squirrelly on full power.

    Things I liked:

    I am very impressed with fit and Finnish. Only one small blemmish in the wood stock. The magazines cycle well when pellets are seated properly. The upper receiver appears to be milled well. Barrel and shroud are tight and as they should be. Lots and Lots of power.

    Things I would have changed:

    Very heavy. Trigger pull is a bit long and not match grade. However the trigger is as good as most rimfire guns out of the box. Needs a sling ! This is a hunting rifel for sure. The power wheel ? Set it on the indicator dots.

    What others should know:

    70+ fpe . All day long . Any grain weight under 25 grains crack . Not sub Sonic. Achieved 70 fpe 20 grain consistently. Achieved 70+ with 30 grain slug however slugs bipass air. Still looking for optimal pellet for both accuracy and energy. This is a squirrel, rabbit, coon, fox , bobcat killer.

    Things I liked:

    Good looking rifle , Nice walnut stock , It was the under lever that drew me to this rifle and It works well .

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have berried the quick disconnect In the bottom of the stock rather that sticking out at the end of the tube , The trigger Isn't bad but not great either , It was probably around 4ibs or so out of the box I dialed It down to around 2ibs and lost the first stage , so the triggers not to bad now but no first stage , maybe I'll play around with It some more and get that first stage back .

    What others should know:

    All In all I'll give the gun a 8 out of ten , It has awesome power very accurate over 50 yards with JSB 18G pellets . At a 100 yards the group opened up to about 1 1/2 not to shabby remember this Is for hunting not a bench rest rifle . The power adjuster wheel works well once you have played around with It for a while you get to know where the power you want Is . Is It a slug gun...Im not sure I tried Nielsen 27G 218 slugs out to 100 yards on full power the group was about 3" cc I was expecting better but the gun was new so ill try them again when Its worn In , I'v ordered a couple of tins of H&N slugs they may do better .

    Things I liked:

    This was a fine rifle to learn on. David is correct and I should have waited to learn more about PCP before judgement.

    Things I would have changed:

    I can't think of anything at this time. The weight is good so a larger caliber would overweigh the gun.

    What others should know:

    This is a fun gun to learn on. Since I've had a chance to learn some I've bought another rifle in a larger caliber. I am waiting to get another soon. Oh, this tired old man bought a compressor as well. Pumping these babies up by hand is a bit tiring.

    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:

    The Eagle Claw is a solid, well built gun. It arrived in perfect condition, ready to shoot out of the box. The rifle has several defining features that allow it to carve out a unique space in the varmint hunting market. First is the very smooth lever action. This is a fun-to-shoot gun. It's large, (i bought the full-size rifle), and has an enormous air tank, (almost as large as a bottle). It will easily push 30 - 35 shots, (.22cal), before there is any decline in muzzle velocity. In fact, from 200 BAR, FPS rises for the first 15 shots, levels off,and then slowly drops to the starting point. The curve is fairly flat and a regulator would be a waste. The magazine is spring loaded and the pellets are loaded tail first. The spring loaded feature allows the mag to index perfectly with every shot. Finally, the accuracy is more than enough for varmint hunting out to 50 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    I am not sure I would change anything at this point. One small thing that could be done better is the cover for the tank inlet. A full-size, (Air Arms), or rotating, (Hatsan) style cover would look better. But this is only personal preference. Of note, this is one rifle that could use a de-pinger built into the air tank, of course, this would change nothing but the sound.

    What others should know:

    It is what is says it is. Powerful and accurate with ample capacity. The shrouded barrel is fairly effective at cutting down the noise - it is still loud, but the bark is gone and it is safe for unprotected ears from what I can tell.

    Things I liked:

    I bought a refurbished .25 Seneca Eagle Claw in Dec 2019. It arrived promptly and I shot it about 150 times. The gun appeared absolutely new and was beautiful. The power wheel did not function well and my maximum velocities were about 910 fps with 33.95 JSB ammunition, about 8 per cent below the advertised 970 fps. I returned it to Air Venturi, and they found a pellet stuck in the power wheel mechanism. After removing the wheel functioned well and the maximum velocity went up to about 935, still a little less than advertised. The rifle otherwise is flawless in its appearance and function. Accuracy is superb even when reducing the power level. A change of 400 fps only results in a drop of about I" at 25 yards. I get about 90 accurate shots from a 200 bar fill to the yellow line of 100 bars, although the velocity drops 120 fps from about 650 fps to 530 at low power. Noise is comparable to a .25 Marauder, even at 935 fps. the power wheel did not turn freely and I was getti

    Things I would have changed:

    The rifle is 4" longer than I would like and 1 lb heavier than my Marauder. The stock is beautiful walnut,but 3/8" too thick in the for grip. The gun needs sling studs.

    What others should know:

    Mr Perez is unfair in his comments about the gun. He may have gotten a lemon. I think most guns would reflect my evaluation. This is the best pcp I have ever owned, and though highly accurate, better suited for hunting than bench rest. Definitely backyard friendly. Air Venturi Service is unmatched. This gun needs a You Tube video to fully present its excellence.

    Things I liked:

    It is a very good looking rifle. It is a lightweight and balanced. It loads easily and I like lever action.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have made the safety indicator a little easier to spot. It is overpriced and I would prefer a larger tank.

    What others should know:

    There is a less expensive rifle that I did not purchase because it could not be purchased in 25 with a picittiny rail. So far I'm a bit disappointed.
