Things I liked: I've had it about a week and I'm really impressed, especially for the price... It is a bit tough to cock... As long as you do your part, it's very accurate... I've been shooting it at 10 and 20 yards and have been surprised at it's accuracy... I haven't measured it's trigger pull but it's on par with a lot of centerfire pistols... I consider it good practice for my 'real' pistols... I haven't had any issues loading the pellets in the chamber... I downgraded it one star due to the difficulty of cocking, although I'm hoping it will smooth out over time... I would highly recommend this pistol for plinking and practice...
Things I would have changed: I wish it was a bit easier to cock... Keeping the same velocity, of course... I wish the grip frame had a bit more texture, it's a little smooth...
What others should know: I did put some moly/oil mix on the pivot points and a bit of lithium grease on the cylinder mating surfaces... It's shooting the included pellets accurately at about 400fps... It also shoots the R10 7.0 g at about 425fps pretty good... I tried a couple of round nose pellets and they didn't group as well... I would say, so far the included pellets shoot the best...
Things I liked: This is the perfect practice tool for sight picture , grip , and trigger pull for your center fire pistols . Good weight , great sights easy to handle and ACCURATE ! The adjustable sights do very good and I like NO RECOIL cause I flinch at the report . 9mm cartridges are expensive and after I practice with the P17 I don't feel I've wasted my 9mm's , they go right in there in a group , not all over the place . Love this Pistol !
Things I would have changed: Loading is a pain , these old hands have been through everything and the loading of this P17 is TIGHT ! To solve the problem , I haven't a clue . I'm going to Pointed Nose to see if I can improve the process , wad cutters end up on the ground too many times loading .
What others should know: If you want the feel of your 1911 , EAA Witness , Sig , or what ever your shooting , this has the weight ,grip and trigger pull your looking for in a practice pistol . Some of the most important aspects of this Air Pistol is it's accurate, has a dandy report , and the finest thing about it is it's FUN ! (Price is one thing I didn't mention , it's affordable .)
Things I liked: handling and feel
Things I would have changed: change the loading Not easy to load the pellet into the barrell
Where is this made? US? China?
