Things I liked: I like: that the single pump cocking process exposes the chamber for loading. that the barrel is encased and protected within the upper frame. that the fiber optic sights are bright and easy to acquire. That the plastic used in the frame is tough, but not brittle, and is abrasion resistant.
Things I would have changed: I would like the safety on the right-hand side. The fake slide lock and magazine release could be removed.
What others should know: The P17 is easy to both cock and load. Yes, it takes a few repetitions to become proficient... I hold the pistol in my right hand, thumb back the hammer, open the top frame full swing, then, from a plastic film can (with a hole in the lid) taken from my left pocket with my left hand, I shake a pellet into my left hand and replace the film can into my left pocket, then maneuver the pellet between my left thumb and forefinger and rotate it's point into the chamber. I then take the upper frame into my left open palm, rotating it closed and, at the end, using my left fingers to pull the upper frame closed to lock. I'd like to have a carbine based on the P3/P17 single pump design. The barrel should be 12-14" with the upper and lower frames sized to make a good forend grip that would also accommodate a larger air cylinder requiring up to twice the cocking force of the P17. The lower frame should use the same pistol grip and trigger, and be extended to create a shortish shoulder stock.
Things I liked: Very accurate. Nice, easily adjustable fiber optic sights. Excellent crisp trigger.
Things I would have changed: Initially it was hard to pump until getting used to it..
Things I liked: Accuracy, Consistency, Price, Low Power, Trigger, Fun Factor
Things I would have changed: Better finishing of plastic 11mm rail and grip seams. Rail can scrape hands when pumping the gun. I installed a 11mm to weaver adapter ($9 on amazon.) and a cheap scope. I also smoothed the seams on the front and rear of the grip with a razor blade for comfort. For the price these are not significant complaints.
What others should know: This is the most airgunning fun you can have for $35. This gun is great for basement shooting at 7 to 12 yards. 10 shot string with Beeman Wadcutters Coated 7.7 grain pellets averaged 411 fps muzzle velocity (406 to 416 fps), std dev 2.8 fps. The gun shoots RWS Diabolo Basic .177 Cal, 7.0 Grains, Wadcutter accurately. I have not experienced any issue with operation of the gun. A few forums identify the ease of rebuild of the gun to address any issues you may experience over time.
Can you shoot 6 mm round bb's in this gun? Someone please answer quick
This product shoots pellets only. It does not shoot steel bb's or airsoft BB's.
If you read the description it states that this is a single shot PELLET pistol...not a BB GUN
Has anyone else paid for the "10 for $10" test along with a P17? I bought my second P17 and paid for this test and was astonished by the velocity results!!! Out of ten shots with 7 grain pellets it got a high of 468 fps and an average of 445 fps!!! I don't know if my first P17 shoots as hard, but maybe it does and the 410 fps manufacturers rating is low for every p17... This is a rare thing to buy an airgun and it turns out alot more powerful than it is supposed to be :)
Has anyone got the .22 cal. Version yet? Someone on a FB group posted pics of it and the packaging, so it seems to be a real product.
