If you're looking for incredible hunting power, the Seneca Dragon Claw will meet your expectations! Throw a .50 cal. projectile and get 230 ft-lbs. Is that enough power for you?

While you may do some plinking with this gun, it won't be long before you'll start taking some game or dispatching pests with it. The Dragon Claw can humanely and effectively take feral hogs, javelinas, coyotes, foxes, nutria, possums, woodchucks, raccoons and similarly sized animals.

Our tech department tested this gun with a 225-grain projectile (gun filled to 3000 psi):

Shot No. 1: 679 fps
Shot No. 2: 668 fps
Shot No. 3: 624 fps
Shot No. 4: 552 fps
Shot No. 5: 457 fps

Things I liked:

When I pulled the trigger on this airgun it was instant gratification. I am not a big fan of small caliber firearms even when it comes to powder burners. I like to feel like my I got my manhood back from my wife when I shoot a weapon and this puppy does the trick. The air bolts come out of this thing so fast that I can not see them in flight. I was amazed at the power and force it hits with. The wood stock in my opinion is just beautiful. Out of all my PCP airguns this one has taken the number one spot in my favoritest list. It is a total blast to shoot and all my friends that have seen it in action gets a huge kick of seeing a .50 caliber air gun in action in which I really love watching their reaction.

Things I would have changed:

I would not change a thing honestly well besides maybe go down a little in price.

What others should know:

The bolt is going to be a little stiff if you have bought this new. It only takes a little break in time (a little shooting) to wear it in to where you can cycle the bolt easyley. So, do not panic or fret when you take it out of the box and go to shoot it for the first time like I did and think that there is an issue. There is no issue. It is just that the weapon is built to such high and tight tolerances that some breakin is required. Happy Shooting my fellow air gunners.

Sent direct to Saddle Mountain, Will did his magic. and on March 13th the ammo finally got here. Nielson Specialty ammo.Shot it for the first time. took three shots to sight it in. THIS IS A RIFLE.WOW

Things I would have changed:


What others should know:

Spend the money send it to Saddle mountain and get good ammo. I got mine from Nielson Specialty Ammo.I will be ordering the 45 cal Light hunter as soon as Pyramid restocks. Ruth at Pyramid is most helpful and knows what she is talking about.

    • Ed from USA asked:

      Is the Dragon Claw more effective with big game when shooting bolts instead of slugs?

      • Val from USA answered:

        Absolutely, long arrows will cause more damage. They generally weigh more than slugs too.
