Things I liked: This gun is extremely fun to shoot! The reason being because the results are so rewarding...this thing is so darn accurate! Using open sights at 15', I am able to knock Black Widows out of their webs!
Things I would have changed: IMHO, I think the P17 might look even better without the chrome accents. One thing that helped accuracy for me was to rubberize the grip. I sprayed a coating of Plastic Dip on mine.
What others should know: I didn't know that different pellets could make so much difference. I had an old tin of German copper pellets that were a challenge to group. I am having great luck with Diablo Basics. I find myself shooting this gun more often than my Diana 6G. FYI, this P17 takes some effort to cock, be careful, I got a surprising pinch when I first tried it out. It took a few tries to figure out a safe and efficient way to cock this gun.
