How many shots will you get from your 500cc Recluse? Our tech department filled their Recluse dual-tank air rifle to 3,000 psi, loaded it with 76-grain bullets and let loose! They shot the first 4 shots on high power. The first shot was 925 fps. Shot 4 was 890 fps.

The next 17 bullets were shot on low power. Shot 5 was 855 fps, and the final shot on low power was 683 fps. That brought the tank down to 800 psi for a total of 21 shots.

This shows you what one gun can do. Velocity and psi levels will vary gun to gun.



If you like to hunt and do it extensively, then the Seneca Recluse .357-caliber air rifle with a 500cc reservoir will give you lots of shots. Great for hunting woodchucks, nutria, possums, rats, raccoons, crows and similar-sized pests.

5.0 5.0

Things I liked:

Power. The wide range of bullets in .357. 75 grain Nelson's at 980 fps. 190 grains at 700 fps. 200 ft. lb. very accurate and well built rifle. Almost as beautiful as my Sumatra Carbine. Sam Yang/Seneca makes rifles that are works of art you will want to display. Will hold 200 bar pressure for weeks, maybe months. Mine is the single tube version. Less shots, more power, so I prefer it to the double. It is loud, just the way I want it. For the price, this is an excellent rifle, and powerful.

Things I would have changed:

Air pressure gauge is not even close to accurate. You should fill these rifles using a compressor with an accurate gauge (I highly recommend the Benjamin Traveler). The gauge on my Sumatra is very accurate, (and they are the exact same gauge by the same manufacturer). The screw on cocking arm is a bit low budget, and could use some improvement, but it works. I would produce this rifle as a 5/6 shot (bullets, not pellets) lever action based upon the Sumatra design (metal revolving cylinder, not cheapo plastic), and leave it loud. It's a rifle, not a BB gun, and keep it under 42 inches.

What others should know:

Short rear Dove Tail (11 mm.) rail, and you should use a DT to Weaver adaptor no longer than 12 cm. This will place your line of sight above the front sight on the rifle. especially helpful if you are using a laser. Do not attach anything directly to the dove tail, unless you are prepared to do modifications like using an elevated scope. The plastic rear sight that comes with the rifle arrived broken, and no wonder, it's a piece of crap, but no one is going to use it anyway.

Things I liked:

Light, you wouldn't get too tired carrying, holding it all day. Points well.

Things I would have changed:

Fiber optic sights would have been nice, or some weaver rails on the front and back of the gun (for AR compatible sights). Some moderation would have been nice as well.

What others should know:

Before you buy this gun, read this: My first impressions were a sense disappointment, this gun REQUIRES ASSEMBLY. Meaning, you WILL NOT be able to shoot this gun out of the box. What needs assembly? The COCKING LEVER. Let me put it this way, its like buying a brand new car, it looking beautiful and everything you wanted, then you look inside the driver's side and see that there isn't a steering wheel. And you find the steering wheel in a box with the necessary fasteners, and you realize that you don't have the correct tools + you cannot find instructions how to put it on. If you still want to buy this after reading that, buy a 22 inch flat head, brass punches, and a socket head screw set (you may also need a rubber mallet). For me? I might return this and get an Air Force Texan for this headache.

        What is the knock down power of the 357 at 100ft.

        • Mark from USA answered:

          MV is approx 180 ftlbs. At 30-35 yds you are looking at 140 ftlbs or so.
