Things I liked:As an air-gunning noob, I was looking to get into the sport without a lot of expense. After reading many of the reviews online I decided to take a chance on the P17 - most folks said it was a good value, but there were some concerns over build quality. So far I've put about 200 pellets through the gun and it's been a blast! Yes, it can take a little while to get used to the force needed to cock it, and yes, it is a little cumbersome at first to load pellets into the tight space, but these are things you grow accustomed to very quickly. Aside from some very minor comments on the coarseness of a couple of the seams/edges in the plastic, I really have no complaints. I can't believe this gun was only $40! As a newbie this was also my first purchase from Pyramyd Air. Great service, quick processing and shipping, easy to use website - I'm sure that I'm coming back to buy again.
Things I would have changed:At this price, nothing.
What others should know:I'd be fascinated to see what the difference is between this gun and the much more expensive German-made P3. My guess is at this point I'm too inexperienced to really be able to tell the m apart, so I'm looking forward to shooting quite a bit with the P17. Great weight, great balance, smooth trigger and I like the fiber optic sights.
Things I liked:Engineered to be solid and simple to fix. 410fps may not sound like much but it is pretty impressive. I like to take old pharmacy prescription bottles and fill them with water. Then cap it with the thread side of cap to where this no air bubble. From 30ft with hollowpoints the bottles just explode, its fun. Also, I like to take the glue gun and put a bunch of army men all over my target area. It's pretty satisfying to pick 'em off at 30-35ft. Incredible accuracy, shot after shot. My O-rings went out at 2500 shots. When I took it apart I could tell that the o-rings weren't that great to start with. I'm the type of person who likes to take things apart and fix them, and I must say that even for me this was a very easy fix. But if you are new to the disassembly of this pistol, I believe there are Youtube videos. I took me about 10min to fix mine. For the price, this is an awesome pellet pistol. And I am very addicted to shooting mine.
Things I would have changed:Easier loading with pellet pen. Better O-rings.
What others should know:First of all, don't modify or tamper with your gun unless you are not planning to return it or the warranty has lapsed. One of the first issues were the elevation adjustment screw. It needs threadlock, and this should be done on a tray or worktable When removing screw please remember that the rear sight is spring loaded and you will lose it if not careful. Also the elevation adjustment screw threads into a nut on the underside. I had to secure the nut in its seat with a drop of super glue because sometimes when cocking my hand would press on the rear sight and push the nut out of its seat, and when you let up it doesn't always re-seat itself completely causing accuracy problems. I had the best results from CPHP. When I tried the standard pointed pellets (not premier pointed) I had way too many fliers. With the CPHP I can put pellets through the same hole at 35ft. Rarely do I get a flier. Its usually the ones that are a little larger at the skirt. Get something to seat pellet properly.
Things I liked:Fun to shoot right out of the box
Things I would have changed:Not a thing
What others should know:Cocking the gun gets easer the more you shoot it
