Ataman BP17 PCP Air Rifle, Black Soft-Touch
The BP17 is one of Ataman’s most unique airgun creations. With the bullpup’s overall length just under two feet, the BP17 is built as the ultimate backpack gun crafted to the brand's exacting standards.
Beginning with the stock, the Ataman BP17 features all-weather black Soft-Touch coating that covers the beech wood body underneath. This ergonomic stock is ambidextrous and fits snugly and comfortably in your grasp with a rubberized buttplate and pistol style grip. Its onboard 100cc regulated cylinder is built to deliver up to 25 .22 caliber rounds at speeds up to 840 fps.
Each includes two 7rd magazines that can be advanced with a smooth forward positioned lever action. When not in use, each magazine can be stored in a groove right below the optics rail. To keep the rifle backyard friendly, the 14.5” Lothar Walther barrel is fully moderated. Last but not least, the BP17 features a two way adjustable trigger that allows the user to customize the pull to their liking.
If you want the ultimate backpacker PCP air rifle, you couldn’t do much better than the Ataman BP17. With its convenient size, .22 caliber power, and regulated cylinder, the BP17 is destined for greatness on the range or the trail.

Nice compact design...wont hit ceiling fans if the barrel is pointed up. Wont hit steps if the barrel pointed down.Things I would have changed:
Definately needs a single shot tray!!!! Someone please come up with one...pretty please!!What others should know:
Choose your pellets wisely!! Short stubby pellets WILL CAUSE A JAM. Ive done will with crow magnums and i also use the tip of a ball point pen to enlarge the skirts prior to loading the mag. The more snug the pellet sits the less frustration you will have. Polymags will fit but i take a finger nail cutter and snip the end of the red tip off as well as enlarging the skirts. If it moves in the magazine,take it out&save yourself a lot of headache.
Fits well at my shoulder (6'-240 lbs.), comfortable to hold, easy to aim. Not so accurate with lighter pellets, likes heavier pellets (18+gr.). Very accurate, at least at my short (18yrd) range, all off hand shooting with a Holosun red dot sight (HS510C). Magazines fit well and index easily, could have been made to hold another round or two and still "fit" within the stock. VERY light, smooth trigger. While I don't have a lot of airgun experience, the shot count per fill seems reasonable.Things I would have changed:
The trigger is actually too light. There is no "wall" after the initial, short take-up. Needs that positive stop or hard spot to let you know when things are about to happen..! Just one easy, smooth pull to release. The "can" on the end of the barrel is just that, a two chamber can. A little more time could have been spent there to quite the crack a little more, again, for the cost. The safety is a bit cheezey for the cost of the gun. Works, but can be a little fiddly.What others should know:
Overall, happy with the purchase...so far.
Its got great weight and balance. Accurate and very powerful. Over priced - had to have cocking arm moved to other side since I shoot left eyed. Customer service was excellent as it should be for $1,400. But they were excellent.Things I would have changed:
Lower the price - itsWhat others should know:
Nice rifle. Its great for backpacking.
Got a question or answer?
Can a longer barrel be fitted by removing the 14.5 inch stock barrel? If so, where can such barrel be ordered, the length and if a moderator can be installed, or would that be a seperste step carried out by a different business? Thank you in advance.
That would be a custom job. We do not machine barrel blanks. Nor are there longer barrels from Ataman.
Could this shoot slugs?
Yes it can. For example, the H&N Piledriver at 21 grains would diminish the velocity to approximately 803 fps, but would provide more kinetic energy (fpe) because the slug would be in the barrel longer to accelerate fromm the expanding gas at its base; although, diminishing, but still expanding. The 14.5 inch barrel is too short for the coefficient of the barrel frictional forces to overcome the momentum buildup by the acceleration energy, which is ashame to have such a short barrel for so much capacity.
If size appropriately, sure. Though I doubt it will produce the velocity needed to stabilize them
Understand that is is shrouded. Is the shroud end threaded to accept an adapter and to add a moderator?
From recent, first hand, experience I concur with Jeff that the factory end cap is truly a pain in the behind to remove. What finally helped, granted a day or two of soaking in a mix of lubricants helped, was to carefully heat the area with a torch. It did not appear to damage the paint/coating, but I make no guarantees on that. Once off, as others have said the DonnyFL adaptor works perfectly. Cheers
Yes, but be advised, getting the end cap of mine was a chore....couple of sets if needle nose pliers to fit into the two holes and unscrew the end cap. However once off, the DonnyFL adapter for perfectly and the DONNYFL sump makes the gun very quiet.
Yes it is threaded. DonnyFL makes a nice adapter that would allow for a more standard threaded "extension" to be added.
To fill your PCP gun:
1.Pick a source of air shown at right
2.If an adapter is needed, one will be shown
3.Add both to your cart to get hooked up
