Solid construction, accurate, light trigger-pull, easy to cock, fun to shoot! That's just about everything you could ever want in an air pistol. The Beeman P3 is a single-stroke pneumatic, which means it requires just one cocking stroke of the overlever. Because it doesn't have a mainspring, the P3 can also be dry-fired. If you want to increase your accuracy and trigger control, dry-firing can help you do that.

Unlike many production pistols, the P3 is made of quality materials. Manufactured by the legendary Weihrauch factory in Germany, this air pistol has a rifled steel barrel. In fact, all critical mechanisms are made of ordnance steel, while the exterior shell is made of tough, durable polymers.

Whether you shoot right-handed, left-handed, single-handed or two-handed, the Beeman P3 can accommodate you! The ambidextrous design and the functionality of the cocking mechanism are convenient no matter what style of shooting you enjoy.

Accuracy is 0.20" center-to-center. You won't find too many pistols in this price range that can brag about that kind of accuracy! The P3 is perfect for 10-meter target shooting, but you'll end up doing a lot more with the gun. Plinking, shooting spinners, and popping tin cans are loads of fun, and the P3 is up to the challenge!

Things I liked: My wife and I are Bullseye competitors and were looking for practice using air pistol. Finally, effective in July 2015, rifled air guns were removed from Michigan's definition of a firearm. We purchased a Beeman P3 (HW 40) fabricated in Germany and, in spite of difficulty cocking it, found it to have a great fit (most important for accurate shooting) and a set of wonderful fiber-optic sights. Accuracy is sufficient for practice. We purchased a second P3. The Chinese copy (P17) is a knock off. To facilitate cocking, my wife built a fixture using hardwood we had on hand. The fixture has a groove 135 mm long, 13 mm high (more would be better, but that is the thickness of the wood) and with a gap of 18.8 mm. One places the loaded P3 upside down on the groove and one can then press downward to cock - easier than the alternatives. I also crafted a cocking fixture from a stack of old mouse pads with a cutout portion for the rear sight.

Things I would have changed: It would have been nice to have a Picatinny (1913) rail to facilitate mounting red-dot sights. Loading is not easy because of too little space near breach. Provide a way to submit pictures.

What others should know: One should pay the extra fee to have the pistol tested so that you and Pyramyd know it works, and is what you ordered. PCP might be next, but not without a way to evaluate the actual fit of the choices. I have three .jpg pictures showing cocking fixture and its use, but site does not provide a means to attach pictures.

Things I liked: I was wanting an accurate and quiet pistol for whacking troublesome varmints in the yard and got more than I was hoping for with this pistol. I've found Crow Magnum pellets to shoot most excellent through it (1/2" or less at 10m) and regardless of the "3-Medium" loudness rating I can't imagine a gun being much quieter. Too me it sounds remarkably comparable to what you get when you crack open a can of your favorite carbonated beverage.

Things I would have changed: I'm not a fan of automatic safeties, nor dummy features attempting to make an airgun look like a firearm - such as the dummy slide lock, ejection ports, and compensator. This is still a pretty nice looking pistol though.

What others should know: If you have big, fat, sausage-fingers you may have trouble loading pellets in this thing. Otherwise it's pretty easy once you figure out how to hold the pellet before inserting.

Things I liked: Very accurate. 11mm dovetail for red dot. Excellent trigger

Things I would have changed: Nothing

What others should know: I bought two P13 Chinese knockoffs that lasted less than 200 rounds. Sent back to Crossman. Paid shipping. Lasted less than 100 shots. Finally broke down and bought the real thing. So far so good. Pricey but if it holds up I will be more than satisfied. Don't listen to those that tell you you can get the same quality for under $50. Not true. I spent over $100 on two duds. Hope this on last a long time then it will be worth it

  • Thomas from USA asked:

    Does this pistol have tru glo inserts in the rear sight or just the front sight?

    • Timothy from USA:

      Tru Glo both front and rear. Although the close up picture does not show that. Great pistol but I wish it did not have tru glo.

  • Lee from USA asked:

    What are some good pellets for 10-meter target shooting with the P3?

  • Larry from USA asked:

    Will this pistol finish off an injured squirrel with one shot to the head?

    • Duell from USA:

      It could serve that purpose, but I have gotten along just fine with a stout stick. Quick, effective and free, although not for the weak of heart.

    • gregory from USA:

      It will, but that's not it's best use. Keep it for targets or plinking.
