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.

Things I liked: Accurate and enough room for different kind of big bore pellets.

Things I would have changed: Make the trigger a true 2-stage, less heavy one.

What others should know: The rifle could look super great if more attention was paid from quality control; but evidently they did not, and this is our second one exchanged. It seems some kind of traditional peculiar air-device with its 500 cc cylinder size. It has a wood stock with a beautiful design and a much acceptable finish. I could think of a better finish for the price it sells as for instance my trigger guard has two mold-casting-metal ugly stamped marks in it (so need some grinding + job painting again, to remove them) and a couple of other burning marks on the wood stock (it will need also a little of sanding work). It is a loud one too. If you want to read our whole review and speed/energy with different DrillDog Big Bore Pellets go to http://www.drilldogbigborepellets.com/p/sam-speedpressureenergy.html We like that you can shoot arrows with it.

Things I liked: The fit and finish are excellent and the pre tune shot consistency is not bad either. I read a lot of reviews before purchase and everything is as expected. Because I wanted a little more out of my rifle, I sent it out for tune to Will Piatt, at Saddle Mountain Gunsmithing. He did a great job and even added a weaver rail to replace the stock dovetail, as I use that system for my scopes and did not wish to purchase additional rings. My shot consistency is great, with 13 shots between 956 and 875 FPS using 81 grain JSB pellets and 200 bar charge, on a nice true bell curve. Before tune it was 7 shots from 924 to 846 fps in a sloped pressure drop, using same pellets. 924, 908, 903, 888, 876, 867, and 846, still not too shabby. The accuracy is consistent and I can easily hit kill zone in medium game out to 100 yards. Weight and feel are that of traditional center fire hunting rifle, and the iron sites work just like they are supposed to. I will not hesitate to hunt with this rifle.

Things I would have changed: I do not know that there is anything that I would change. It is exactly as expected, a great shooting single shot PCP air rifle that is perfect for hunting small to medium size game. I have heard that the charging handle is the weak link, and breaks, but that is easily remedied. There are multiple aftermarket types available on the net, and gunsmiths who work on these. Is it worth the effort and expense to get a tune? I firmly believe so. At the price of this rifle, an extra 275 - 300 dollars for a tune still puts you under what some of the other rifles are going for, and every stock PCP could benefit from a good tune in order to achieve optimum performance. If this were not true there would not be so many tune parts and services available on the net. Also, this is single shot, so no continual shooting, your F/U shots take a bit longer. If that is an issue, then perhaps a Hatsun, Benjamin, or Evanix would better suit you. I don't mind the single shot, so this is a non issue.

What others should know: Bottom line....Buy what you want out of a PCP air rifle to begin with, don't try to make something into what it is not. If you are looking for an reasonably priced big bore PCP airgun for hunting and plinking, that is well made, has great fit and finish, gets the job done, and can achieve even more with a good tune, then please consider this PCP air rifle. If you are going be held up because this does not shoot like a center fire rifle, and is single shot, I really think you should look elsewhere. I love shooting this Recluse and it is absolutely perfect for what it is. In the future, I may decide to purchase any one of the brands listed above, depending on what type of shooting I decide to do at that time. But for now, I am perfectly satisfied with this rifle. Also, Will Piatt does great work, as many of you know. If you e-mail him he does have discount code for those who are drop shipping to him for tune prior to receipt, a service that in my opinion is well worth it. Don B

Things I liked: This is a mate to my Dragon Claw and I was hopping for a better experience from the Claw Got into PCP after I told my self I wouldn't. My first buy was the Benjamin Discovery and out of the box it leaked what looks from the gauge port O rings, still leaking. Next I bought a Benjamin Marauder. 22 pistol, yep you guessed it, it leaked but was fixed after tighten the foster fill port. Feeling lucky I purchased a .177 Marauder and everything was great out of the box but I wanted a .22 cal Marauder. This was a disaster of a buy, the gauge medal readout came loose and this one leaked air. After removing the plastic lens and repositioning the metal read out and giving the presure gauge a little twist I have it up to par. Feeling lucky I purchase and received my Sam Yang Dragon Claw today. After a few asembley things I tried to pressures the gun, no go so out come the Dawn. Bubbles coming from the Foster fitting, it was a little more then finger tight. It may be the black cloud I live under.

Things I would have changed: Receive a air gun without mechanical problems especially when you pay $900 for the package

  • Francisco from USA asked:

    What is involved in a tuning job of this gun?

    • Bob from USA asked:

      how can i replace the o ring at the breech where it closes over the ball on the recluse 9mm

      • Asylum81 from USA asked:

        My front fixed blade sight looks bent when viewing through the rear sight. Is this normal, optical illusion? it appears to be straight when rested and viewed from all sides and angles. Is this due to the nature of the guns natural seating in the shoulder? If not, how can it be fixed since it is fixed?
