Big Bore Air Guns - Seneca Dragon Claw

Post by Inquisitor »

Image

I got a birthday present. It’s the Seneca (formerly Sam Yang) Dragon Claw with the 500cc reservoir.

It shoots 50 cal pellets or round balls (.490 I think), and supposedly will sling the Air Venturi airbolts.

Something like 500-670 FPS (declines as the tank empties) and 230 foot pounds of ME.

I function checked it yesterday but couldn’t dial it in beyond getting it on paper as my friend forgot the regulator for the scuba tank. So a few pumps of the handpump to get the gauge to green and about 8-10 shots.

It’s about as loud as a subsonic 22. It seems to be the same platform as the shotgun they make (which is awesome and can bust clays). My friend has the wingshot. It’s cool.

When I got home I filled to max with a hand pump, about 200 strokes. Which is a lot. But it’s a 3000psi tank, so the real challenge was fatigue (the shotgun is 4500 psi and gets real difficult to pump).

This is an enormous rifle.

That's cool. I've not devoted time or money to my air guns recently.

It's legal for me to shoot that in my back yard. :shock:

No such thing. I’ll get my own scuba tank.

It crossed my mind. I find these weapons fascinating. And good object lessons in the futility of banning arms.

How muzzle-heavy is that thing? Off-hand shooting would appear to be a real workout!

BTW, I love how steampunk that gun is.

It’s actually pretty balanced. It’s heavy. But uniform.

Good the hear. I hate guns that are too muzzle-heavy. Feels like I'm fighting the gun too much just to stay on target.

Happy Birthday - 29 again? Congrats on your new toy, very, very nice! Does MA consider it a firearm?

They don’t. They have some regulations. Shooting across a public way, age restrictions, etc. but they are not regulated as firearms.
