Things I liked: This feels like the real thing and has decent accuracy @ 36 feet.
Things I would have changed: The seals are HORRIBLE and after 1000-2000 rounds I have to change the seals every 50-100 rounds at best.I have used white lithium grease for lube to no avail and 3 in 1 oil with the same results. This pistol is not worth the price of shipping let alone the price of $35. I truly got just what I paid for, a learning experience to never try to cheap out on an air gun again.
What others should know: If you make this investment purchase a case of seals and what ever lube you choose you WILL need it all.
Things I liked: Cheap feels similar to a real pistol semi easy to cock load and shoot.
Things I would have changed: I wish I would have saved my money and put it towards a real air pistol. Shot a couple thousand rounds thru it and had to change the seals. Now have to reseal it after 50-60 rounds. What a piece of junk. I have put new seals in it 4 times in 1 week I am done with this paper weight.
What others should know: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF CRAP.BTW..Not a problem with Pyramid Air though. They are a great company I will buy from them again. Like 1 of their techs told me in a chat one day you get what you pay for and he is absolutely right.
Things I liked: The value for the dollar is unlike most of what you encounter today. The gun I got is by far more value for the dollar than any of the over 100 airguns I have acquired. Velocity is really consistent. There is no leakage at all in this one. I can let it sit and fire it and it is the same as shooting immediately after cocking. I have measured the velocities of 26 pellets ranging in weight from 7.0 gr. to 8.2 gr. All of the 7.0 to 7.5 gr. pellets exceed 430 fps with the highest velocity coming from the RWS R-10 Match 7.0 gr at 445 fps. Several other of the 7.0 to 7.3 gr. pellets push the 440 fps threshold. Pellets in the 7.9 gr class deliver around 420 fps with the JSB Match Express 7.87 gr. pellet going 427 fps average. It is the highest velocity of pellets in this weight range. All three of the various 8.2 gr. pellets gave nearly identical velocity averages of 411 to 412 fps. I was pleased and impressed at the consistency which indicates stability in the power plant. Accuracy is good.
Things I would have changed: Take some of the sharpness from the edges of the top rail to reduce the tendency to produce small cuts to the palm of the hand when closing the action. I usually also prefer standard sights and not fiber optic ones but these are very uniform and I like them. The adjustments are precise and the gun was zeroed with the sights having plenty of adjustment left if needed. Most of the 26 different pellet offerings tested landed in the same place on the target but there were some slight differences noted with a couple shooting slightly right of the zero of most. Group size did vary from pellet to pellet but most did group well and three were outstanding: H&N Match Pistol 7.4 gr. WC; RWS Meisterkugeln Heavy 8.2 gr. WC; RWS R-10 Match Heavy 8.2 gr. WC. I will add specific group size information later in the comments section after this aspect of testing is completed.
What others should know: I have read a lot of the reviews posted here and there is such a wide range of what is experienced from this product, I am an airgun professional and I find that is the case with most Chinese production. Quality control simply can not exist in any practical manner from what I have encountered. At times there is a hint of excellence in one specimen, other times there is a total absence of quality in another. So beware, you will not be able to count on what I experienced. I had in mind to tear my gun down from the start and correct the things that are described in many reviews but instead I proceeded to try it out from the box as it came. After more than 300 shots, I believe I have one of the better examples. Smooth, consistent operation and performance without a hint of fault or pending failure. Most 10 shot strings fired over the Chronograph have an extreme spread of about 5 fps which produces consistent performance and high accuracy potential. I am very glad I put aside my doubts.
This gun full metal? Give a quick answer
Quick answer is no, it's mostly plastic.
What is it made of
The trigger blades on my 2 are differently steel not plastic.
Mostly plastic; a very tough plastic. The bottom frame has steel rails along it's insides to strengthen the frame and allow stronger pin points. The barrel is rifled steel housed under the top "slide". The air cylinder and piston are aluminum. The trigger mechanism is steel; the trigger is plastic, but the trigger bearing on the sear mechanism is steel. The entire trigger mechanism, housed under the right side grip frame is rather complex; extraordinary! The rear sight is steel inset into rails molded into the top frame and is elevation and windage adjustable by screws. The plastic fiber optics, both front and rear are excellent, but rather delicate. My first P17 has over 4000 pellets through it.
would i have any trouble with getting one to Australia?
