Things I liked:The easy cocking, the smooth shot cycle, the grips and balance, the looks, the super quiet firing cycle.
Things I would have changed:The rear sight that has outer wings that are taller than the part of the rear sight leaf that moves for windage, making it have a buckhorn type sight picture instead of a target leaf. Buckhorn sights are the worst in my book. The 8+ lb trigger.
What others should know:This pistol is the quietest airgun I have ever witnessed, and I own a large collection. The accuracy is just okay. I get 1.5"-2" groups at 30 feet. For comparison, I can get 3/4" groups at the same distance with my p17. The trigger really holds this pistol back. DON'T DO A TRIGGER JOB ON IT, THOUGH! I did, and I got a very nice pull, but the metal is case hardened, so it was way too soft to hold the new shape after reprofiling the sear, and now I need to order a new one from Umarex. For the money, absolutely nothing touches the Beeman p17. The only reason to choose this pistol over the Beeman is if you are not particularly strong and want something very easy to cock, and quietness matters more than accuracy and trigger quality. Still a nice pistol. Only the poor trigger really holds it back. Give it a 4 lb pull and it becomes a game changing pistol. As it is, just a ho-hum plinker that looks cool.
Things I liked:Easy to cock and load. Grip fits my small to medium hand. Accuracy with red dot scope is very good...good results at 5m and 10m with several different pellets, H & N Sport wadcutters edgeing out RWS R-10 Match wadcutters. I shot some 5 shot groups today that were dime size at 5 meters. Since this gun has had less than 100 shots thru it, I expect some improvement after a reasonable breaking in period. I'm also hoping for improvement in the trigger action...using my digital fish scale, I tested the trigger pull at almost 8 pounds. The trigger pull is not unusually long or rough, just hard to break the shot.
Things I would have changed:It would be nice to have access to the trigger group so it could be tuned like other pistols, but all I could manage to do was to take the grips off and....nothing....no way I could find to do anything but lubricate the action. Hopefully this situation will improve over time and lots of shooting. The small slot in the rear sight makes it hard for my tired, old eyes to get a good sight picture. Even though the rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, I mounted a red dot sight on the weaver rail with good results. After a little more breakin, I will be using this gun in the GTA 5 meter pistol matches. It should be good for the 5m match and hopefully the 10m, but the power level is probably too low for longer distances.
What others should know:Shipping was very good and the gun arrived from Pyramid before I expected it. Even with the issues mentioned; low power and heavy trigger pull, the accuracy and ease of cocking make this a very nice value at the current price under $50.
Things I liked:Fit and finish. The manufacturer stock photos dont do this justice, there are some uploaded customer photos on pyramydair that show the details better.
Things I would have changed:Not a dealbreaker, but There are plastic mold mark circles on the left barrel side and mold lines on the top of barrel that take away from the appearance, other than that, all is ok.
What others should know:This is a good breakbarrel for the whole family to yard shoot at targets, young and females can cock easily. If crosman would have this nice looking, and aiming, of a gun on their benjamin np pistol they would have an instant new classic instead of an amc pacer. The grip is excellent. Sights are just right. This is the only accurate looking reproduction breakbarrel pistol that I know of. A must have for a quick go-to pistol that needs no accessories other than pellets and infrequent silicone lube .
