Things I liked: The Beeman P17 is one of the most accurate, easy to shoot, air pistols I have used at any price. The trigger pull is crisp and light and the included pellets group well in this gun. The grip has a nice feel to it, and overall, the pistol balances very well. It gives a low report when fired indoors and is a very consistent shooter.

Things I would have changed: Loading the pellet into the barrel is a little tight and may be difficult for someone with limited finger dexterity.

What others should know: The P17 is similar in design to the Beeman P3 Pneumatic Pistol at a quarter of the price. The hammer shown is not functional; it actually releases the the top half of the pistol which is the single stroke pumping mechanism.

Things I liked: Looks like a real gun, feels like a real gun.

Things I would have changed: quality

What others should know: This would be a great gun if the quality was their, but then what can you expect out of a 50 dollar gun. The gun broke after a dozen shots. seal gave up. out another 13 bucks shipping to send it back to get a 50 dollar refund.

    Things I liked: I think it is well made. It is sturdy and better than I expected. The feel is good in the hand. It was very accurate, The first day I had it I got my moneys worth. Lots of fun plinking. I should have bought two. Some have complained about the sights and color issue. I had no problem with that, it worked for me.

    Things I would have changed: The cocking was a little tough at first but I already knew this from others reviews. After a bit you will find your own method and the issue is over. Same way with loading the pellet. No big deal. There is nothing else to change I could see.

    What others should know: Personally and this is just me, if you put a scope on it, cocking just got complicated. Not much room then for the hand and that hard cocking just got harder. And I haven t pinched my hand yet but you can do that easily. Pros outweighs the Cons. You will be glad you bought it. Cheap price but great pistol. Go for it!

    Things I liked: Accurate, no recoil, ergonomic feel, looks cool and realistic. Seems to be rugged (so far).

    Things I would have changed: Very hard to load, especially with large adult fingers, or in low light conditions. I would add some sort of funnel, or feed ramp. If not for loading difficulties, I would have given five stars all around.

    What others should know: Not very powerful, but I knew that by the FPS in the description: 410 feet per second. That is OK, because I just wanted an accurate low priced target pistol. If you are planning on hunting or shooting long range, get a .22 rifle or an air rifle with at least 1000 FPS rating.

    Things I liked: Light weight, accurate, quiet, great air pistol for money

    Things I would have changed: Upgrade o ring on piston

    What others should know: If pistol begins losing compression, replace o ring(Lowes plumbing dept o ring set #0547), sand down intake hole, use 600 or lighter wet sand paper, also use "buzzy's slick honey grease(bike shop)on piston and o ring and squirt some in to discharge hole(found my release valve appeared to be sticking)
