I bought this gun because of its quiet power, light weight, and short length. So far all have expectations have been met if not exceeded. I am still working on dialing in the power (FPE) element. What I have so far for power is plenty but if I can get more and remain accurate why not. I also really like the small air bottle. It's nice I can adapt it to a larger bottle if I like but being able to hand pump this gun from 2,000 PSI - 3,000 PSI in just under 100 strokes is working great for me. To me this is a hunting gun more than a paper puncher. Most of my hunting trips (other than prairie dogs) allow for fewer than 10 shots unless I am having a bad shooting day so the gun is perfect for why I bought it.Things I would have changed:
I am still looking for the scope mount I would like. I prefer the lowest (closest to bore) mount possible and the design of AF guns makes that a little bit of a challenge but I knew that before I purchased the Escape SS. There is a lot of info on the web about the Escape but very little of that is focused specifically on the Escape SS... review videos are not my forte but maybe this is a call for those of you that have that talent. Most notably I have found very little on the best tune (power wheel) for the SS as far as balancing shot count and power (FPE). The numbers available for maximum FPE mainly seem to be available for the original Escape not the SS or UL versions.What others should know:
Pyramid Air ROCKS! The majority of this gun was purchased with proceeds from one of Pyramid Air's contests, Thank you! The gun was on backorder but the tracking and delivery was all right on track. The gun is great but expect to give thought to the need and best way to install a sling as well as what to do about scope mounting to your preferences.
This gun is fantastic! If you're looking for a really lightweight compact hunting rifle, this is it! I enjoy off hand shooting more than prone or with a bipod, the lightweight of this gun makes that doable even with a large optic! At about 30" long it's also more compact than many of the expensive bullpups! This gun does sub inch groups at 50yds with ease, and will do 3" groups at 100yds.Things I would have changed:
The safety is almost like pushing a razor blade. Really needs a rubberized edge or atleast to be smoother.... The grip came loose to the point of nearly falling off in the first couple 100rds. I had to take it off and reinstall. Haven't had a problem since. The trigger spring is a noisy spring. And for the life of me, it's a $600+ rifle intended to be knocked around the woods. why aren't picatinny rails machined into the scope rail from the factory???????What others should know:
****I did the "Oring mod", but the thing is.... the top hat itself is adjustable. So when you add an Oring, it's like taking away from the stroke of the tophat which means less power/air. So you will get "more shots" but at a reduced lower corresponding to how much you reduced the tophat/valve stroke. So to maintain power, you'll need to adjust the top hat out relative to Oring thickness, and will see no change in shot count****** I used a .125 Oring, and adjusted the tophat out the same. I get about 10-12 shots at 840s fps power wheel setting "3.8" for about 40fpe with the 25gr JSBs. Adjusting your tophat/Oring also effects the performance values at the power wheel. So if you are going to mess with that, you need a Chrono and a feeler gauge to take notes about tophat position. You can turn the tophat in to the same effect as adding and Oring to the factory tophat position. You can get 20+ shots from this gun if shooting at 650-700fps is acceptable to you.
This gun is very light weight, Accurate under a half inch at 50 yards, fairly easy to pump up by hand. It is excellent for hunting. It feels very comfortable in my hand. It also looks bad ass.Things I would have changed:
I think they should make a shroud for the other two models. Drop the bottle down some. Although it is fine for me. I read many reviews where people did not like it. put some cloth or covering over the tank. It is chilly on your face.What others should know:
Do the O ring behind the top hat mod. I am getting 50% + more shots before I have to refill. I used to get about 15 shots on PW setting 8-1 now I am getting around 25. Pumping it up is hard the first time. It was like 350 pumps to go from empty to 3000psi.after shooting about 20 shots it takes 75 pumps to bring it from 2000 psi to 3000 psi. I am 47yo. The sound with the o ring is very low. The rapport of the pellet hitting the target is louder than the shot. This is not a plinking gun. It is more for hunting. If you want a plinker, I would get a Condor. You will have 3 times the shots before having to refill.
Got a question or answer?
Why are the fps and loudness higher on the .22 EscapeSS than the TalonSS? Appears to have the same barrel length and shroud, only differing in tank capacity. Thanks
The escape has a striker weight and a high flow valve I believe
Is this rifle regulated because I did not see anything saying so, maybe I missed it, so what pressure is it regulated at? Or, if not regulated, does anyone know the valve dwell time on the first shot at 3,000 psi for the maximum power for the five shots.
The AirForce line is not regulated. The dwell time question would be better posed to AirForce, don't think Pyramyd has a way to accurately measure that right now.
I got it that the 0.25 caliber shoots at 900 fps, but what is the weight of that pellet that travels at 900 fps?
Having an adjustable hammer spring tension means you'll be able to push a few pellets that fast, but out of the box 900 fps should be achievable with anything in the 25 grain range or less.
