Seneca Aspen .22
« on: December 25, 2018, 12:21:49 AM »
Hey folks, I have just gotten back from being in the field for a total of 8 days filming a field review of the Seneca Aspen in .22 caliber. This is a great rifle and have had a great time with it. This rifle will sell like crazy in my opinion being it's $400 and fully self sufficient with air. This is near the ultimate survivalist Airgun, should have the full report in video and written form within the week. Can't wait to share!

Great review, enjoyed watching the video.

One question:  how does the Aspen handle moisture?  In one article I found it claimed it had a desiccant system and in another it said it didn't.  I live in a pretty moist environment (Southeastern US) so moisture is always a concern.

Very good question Stretch. I live in lower Alabama where humidity is a huge concern.
I may be willing to sell off a few guns taking up space here to fund one.

I went to PA's site and read the QA section on this gun. Someone asked if it had an onboard drying system. Tyler's answer was "No".

I saw that also.  I can't find it now, but last night I read a review that showed a silica capsule mounted under the pump arm and identified as a "desiccant system".  Unless there's a way to drain any accumulated water in the system, I'm afraid it won't work for us who live in humid locations.

Oh, by the way, look how much nicer the rifle looks with a change of stock color?  (My apologies to the photos's owner, I couldn't find your thread here.)

It is basically the same gun as the Nova Freedom.
BTW... any moisture would surely be exhausted out the barrel during the shot. The silicone based oil that comes with the gun should counter the moisture if maintained correctly as suggested.

I've been having a lot of fun with mine.

I have been filling mine with a bottle. Less pumping, less moisture :D

Anyhow just tagging this thread so I can watch the video later.

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
