Things I liked: I like the weight and feel of this pistol and especially the trigger....light & crisp & predictable.....Makes my other air pistols trigger pulls, feel clunky in comparison....I also appreciate the auto engagement of the safety during the cocking procedure..... The accuracy is hard to beat....very good groupings at 10+ meters.....
Things I would have changed: Well this is a bear for cocking.....will definitely build muscle mass....not sure on how one would make this any easier..... A strange anomaly has started to manifest with my Beeman....often, it will not shut tight when completing the cocking sequence.... leaving an 1/16th to 1/8" gap back at the hammer.... This does not have to do with how much muscle I use....I can slam it shut or close it more slowly and the same thing happens.....but not every time....I am paying attention to how I cock this gun as it may be due to operator error.... In any event, I either have to re-cock the pistol to get it to close securely, or move the top slide a bit to the to the left and manually seat the hammer.....I may have to reluctantly return this for warranty...... If this had not occurred, I would give this 5 stars all the way.....
What others should know: I ordered this over a Holiday weekend (which I was unaware of, being retired)....there was also major winter storms wreaking havoc back East.... So communication was slow to be returned and phone calls went unanswered or non responded to......Once PyramydAir did ship and supply tracking info all went as it should.....I am still waiting for one item to be shipped (pellets) that came with the package, as it was stated it was still on back-order when I last checked order status .....I ordered this Kit nearly a month ago, so a lesson in patience.... Would I do business with PyramydAir again.....a moderated yes (I would have appreciated an email informing one item was out of stock, instead of me discovering it when checking my order).....would I recommend them to friends.... yes.....They have a top rated selection of Air Guns and informative reviews....Next purchase I will consider using their 10 for $10.00 pre-shipment service....
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 .)
Where is this made? US? China?
