Looks like a .45 1911 firearm...and just as accurate! Made in Germany by the legendary Weihrauch company, the Beeman P1 is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of air pistols. This is an heirloom airgun that you'll pass along to your grandchildren and beyond.

The gun's heft and balance convey quality and substance. It fills your hand without feeling bulky or oversized. The unusual overlever cocking mechanism compresses the powerful mainspring, and the hammer is actually the catch for it. Highly adjustable two-stage trigger, which has a serrated surface for more control, will help you extract maximum accuracy from the P1. In fact, the adjustable trigger is so crisp, you'll wish it was on your firearms.

The dovetail grooves are extra wide, and our accessory list has several 11mm to 14mm mounts that are known to fit.

Unlike many modern air pistols, the P1 isn't made of molded synthetics. It's a solid metal gun with finely checkered walnut grips. And, it's ambidextrous. The 11mm dovetails make it easy to mount a pistol scope or a red dot sight.

The P1 has two power levels. The different power levels are created by cocking the gun to different lock points. See the detail shots to see how to cock the gun for high power and low power.

The distance you shoot, the weight of the pellet and the type of target will let you determine which power level is best. The P1 is an excellent indoor trainer for those who shoot the M1911A1.

Things I liked: the weight of this pistol, how incredibly accurate, and how much it quiets down after 1000 plus shots. The fact that they tell you the break in period. Once it was shot the suggested number of times the groups became so tight i was putting pellet on top of pellet.

Things I would have changed: Explain that this pistol is not for the beginner. It is everything and more; than what it is advertised as. With that said the gun is extremely sensitive. That is why it is for the accomplished shooter who is looking for something more in a target pistol.

What others should know: This tool works flawless, its accurate, powerful, and once broke in is surprisingly quit. I have shot 8 different types of pellets of different weights and head configurations. They all shoot very respectfully accurate. Great pistol cant say enough.

Things I liked: I bought a Beeman Webley Tempest in 1985 for pistol training practice while in College. I remember how much I wanted the Beeman P1 back then. I also recall how much fun I had with the Tempest and how it really helped my shooting. Turning the clock forward to a few years ago, I started to get back into Airguns. The Tempest came back out of hibernation and I found it was still as fun to shoot today as it was back then. I decided it was about time I got the Beeman P1 and was very pleased it has stood the test of time and is still available today. There is nothing like rekindling the fires of youth like chasing down the coveted things of yesterday and finding them. This has been a wonderful journey. The Beeman P1 is a super fine airgun. I just got it yesterday and put nearly 250 rounds through it before my wife came home from work. My arms are tired and my wife is home today and so I am writing this review.

Things I would have changed: My chief complaint is that I waited 30 years to get one. I could barely afford the Tempest in 1985 and the price of the P1 was beyond me then, but today, I can chase these things down and get what I want. The joys of finding the P1 to be not only exactly as it is advertised today, but also everything I had thought it would be over the last 30 years is pretty satisfifying. Not much in this world is like that and it pleases the hell out of me that my hobbies can make me smile like this. I wish I had a better idea what pellets (.22 caliber) to use, but I will learn. I have been using 14.3 Crosman domed in the 500 round tins because I needed a place to start. It is great having a gun that has such a potential as this one does.

What others should know: Waiting 30 years is a mistake. I wish I had gotten this airgun then. It would be broken in by now and I'd be a lot closer to the bullseye with it. I feel great in knowing this gun will go the distance with me like the Tempest has. I feel great in knowing that I will get better shooting it. That my skills will improve. That my skills will be transferable to the Shooting Range. I really love shooting pellets in my basement and this Beeman P1 will get a workout over the rest of my life. I would like to join some sort of e-mail list or club where I can get info on pellets etc., without having to reinvent the wheel or try to figure out what the rest of you already know. Please point me towards an active group of fellows who are shooting these things today.

  • Gregory from Canada asked:

    Is the Beeman p1 really the exact same pistol in every way as the Weihrauch hw45?

    • Robert from USA:

      No. They are different velocities.

  • Fred from USA asked:

    Will the grips on the HW75 fit on the P1 and if so, can I purchase?

    • Robert from USA:

      They should. Both guns are, or were made by Weihrauch. I have a 1980's Beeman P1. I had installed Pachmayr combat grips for a colt 45, and currently am using Beeman exotic hardwood combat grips. Anything that will fit a Colt .45 should fit a P1.

  • Keith from USA asked:

    In shooting a P17 I had difficulty inserting the pellet. Is the P1 as tight quarters in the loading chamber?

    • Robert from USA:

      I have a P1 I purchased in the 1980's. The P17 is a cheap knock off of the P1, so the general dimensions are similar, and so the loading of the guns is very similar. The rifled barrel for the P1 is hand made of German ordinance steel and is nicely beveled where the pellet is inserted. I watched a youtube video to reference the P17. The video explains how the pellets are a really tight fit in the barrel. The video never mentioned the brand of pellet used, but I use high end German pellets made for Beeman, like the Beeman H&N Match .177 Cal 8.18 Grain Wadcutter. The loading process is about the same, but the pellets and barrels on these two guns are not in the same league. I doubt that P17 barrel is German steel, or even ordinance steel, and no way was is hand made. A gun that cheaply made cannot have the kind of tolerances of a P1. My P1 is also partly T6 aircraft aluminum and exotic hardwood, where as the P17 is not. However, we are talking apples and oranges here. A vintage P1 is hand made in Germany and costs more than ten times what a P17 costs. Kind of like comparing the family car to a formula 1 racer. Different worlds entirely.
