Things I liked:are the looks,trigger,size,feel and the match-grade barrel.I guess everything.I am very pleased.
Things I would have changed:Even though I like the feel of it in my hand I wish it had a higher quality set if grips other than plastic.
What others should know:I bought this pistol to take care of pets around the house.I wanted a 177cal. I did give the marauder pistol a long hard look,but still chose the 1720T. To find what pellets shot the best I chose the H&N hunter sampler,JSB match diabolo test sampler,RWS pellets sampler and polymags.There were 16 different pellets in all.Weight was 5.56 grs-11.57 grs. I chronographed all pellets and the velocity is as follows.I won't give for all pellets just the lightest and the heaviest and the three that shot the best.The lightest was the H&N field target trophy green at 848 fps the heaviest was H&N silver point at 676 fps.I changed the bolt from left to right hand made a modification to increase the velocity,which voided the warranty.The accuracy is very very good. The three pellets that shot the best were the polymags,JSB straton and the H&N field target trophy.The H&N gave a 5 shot group of .150 ctoc at 43 feet.The polymags and the JSB were the same at .225 ctoc at 43 feet.I want to shoot at 25 yards soon when weather is nicer.I was shooting in the back building.I chronographed these three pellets and lightest and heaviest after the modification.The lightest now has a avg. speed of 1075 fps the heaviest is 845 fps.The other three because of being close in weight the avg. speed is now 950 fps.I am thinking agout hunting with it this Fall.
Things I liked:Amazingly accurate gun. Shoots just over 750 fps with 7.0 gr RWS pellets. Charging is fast and easy. Using Hill MK III hand pump, takes approximately 40-50 strokes to bring to 3000 psi from 1200. If plinking, you can get just over 60 shots. When shooting FT, you can get approximately 30 usable shots. Shooting 6 shoot groups smaller then a dime is the norm and most often all touching. I like that it comes with a extra transfer port to bring the pistol down to silhouette shooting speeds. Great balance once a scope is attached.
Things I would have changed:Better stock grips and potential for regular sights.
What others should know:This is intended primarily for FT or non-competitive silhouette shooting with the lower speed transport. Was contemplating the Silhouette and 2300 series pistols, and am very happy with this gun. I would highly recommend it on accuracy and versatility.
Things I liked:accurate, accurate, accurate. Twenty yard 10 shot groups are now down to .221 outside to outside spread. The L-W barrel on this pistol loves the jsb 8.44 and you get 30-35 shots per fill. After about 250 shots the crony showed 773 fps average.
Things I would have changed:Get rid of that push on pull off cap covering the foster fitting and use a threaded one like on the M-rod.
What others should know:The 1720 has a real potential in field target competition.
