This is probably my best air weapon, on par with its equally aged RWS Model 36 Rifle, both in .177. It has been serviced once since the early 1990s for a new main spring by Beeman when it was in Huntington Beach, CA. It is sturdy, precise and consistently consistent.Things I would have changed:
How does one improve on perfection? This project of Robert Beeman and Weirauch lives up to its reputation, "The Holy Grail of air pistols." I can think of nothing requiring change that would not unbalance the total package that is the P-1.What others should know:
I had read complaints of some who blow out their breech seal. I learned a long, long time ago, that that occurs if the pellet chosen is too tight to the bore. I shot RWS Super Mags for years (when they were 9.5 grains) and had to purchase a pellet sizer to reduce their diameter a few thousands of an inch. To much obturation/friction at the breech WILL dump the high pressure air by blowing out the small O ring seal. Also, after tens of thousands of shots, the pistol exceedingly gradually became dangerous. It did so by becoming hair-triggered. I suspect it self-polished to the point of danger. The solution was to ADD pressure by adjusting the trigger resistance per the instructions. Problem solved! This is an heirloom piece for the serious air gun enthusiast. It will outlast its first and may several owners. It is worth the price of admission.
Man, I agonized over buying this gun. It was so much money, and after reading every review I was concerned about whether I would like it, be able to hit anything with it, etc. I shouldn't have worried. My P3 and S&W 586 Co2 are gathering dust, as this thing is super fun to shoot, very accurate, packs a punch and is easy to learn to shoot well if you dedicate a few (fun) sessions to "learning" it, like you would with any airgun or firearm. Great trigger, and I prefer the solid sights my gun came with to the fiber optics, but to each his own. You won't be able to put this gun down, and will want to show your friends and get a little competition going, perhaps. While I am confident that you will not regret buying it, if for some crazy reason you do, resale prices are always high on this gun...but I'm keeping mine, thanks!Things I would have changed:
On my gun, the rear sight adjustment screw would move a bit under recoil over time. I sighted the gun in for 10 meters and put a tiny bit of Purple Locktite (weakest kind) on the threads of the adjustment screw UNDER the slide where the screw come through it. Problem solved...but as an alternative, I could have just taken a picture of the screw's position and checked it before each shooting session, so whatever solution the shooter prefers, this is easily managed.What others should know:
My particular gun is .177 and loves the RWS R 10 Match pellets in the 7.0 grain weight. I am stocking up on these as opportunity allows. Although it's nifty, I find I never really use the low power setting, and the point of impact is significantly different. However, it is nice to know that is an option if I ever need it in future shooting situations, but I would have to sight it in as such.
I bought my Beeman P-1 directly from Beeman back in 1985. It cost $180 C.O.D. It's still a great pistol and I shoot it regularly. I've got a couple of friends who ask, from time to time, if I'm willing to sell it. The answer is always no. It's an heirloom that will stay in the family. It's stamped "Made in W. Germany" and it's one of the first 2500 shipped to the U.S., based on the serial number. It's a .177 caliber.Things I would have changed:
Nothing. However, I wish it had the fiber-optic sights that the current models have. It has regular iron sights. My eyesight isn't as good as it was 36 years ago. I haven't put on optics on it, because it wouldn't fit in the Uncle Mike's holster I purchased back then.What others should know:
The only thing I've done to it was replace the mainspring around 1995. I loaned it to a brother-in-law to dispatch pests on his property. He knew how to take care of it, but apparently his wife cocked it once and left it that way. When it was returned months later, it was unloaded, but still cocked. Beeman charged $100 to repair it and ship it back. It doesn't get loaned out anymore.
Got a question or answer?
does this pistol come with fiber-optic sights, which I do not like. If so, can those be provided without?
Look under specifications.
Will a laser fit the Beeman P1 pistol?
