Solid construction, accurate, light trigger-pull, easy to cock, fun to shoot! That's just about everything you could ever want in an air pistol. The Beeman P3 is a single-stroke pneumatic, which means it requires just one cocking stroke of the overlever. Because it doesn't have a mainspring, the P3 can also be dry-fired. If you want to increase your accuracy and trigger control, dry-firing can help you do that.

Unlike many production pistols, the P3 is made of quality materials. Manufactured by the legendary Weihrauch factory in Germany, this air pistol has a rifled steel barrel. In fact, all critical mechanisms are made of ordnance steel, while the exterior shell is made of tough, durable polymers.

Whether you shoot right-handed, left-handed, single-handed or two-handed, the Beeman P3 can accommodate you! The ambidextrous design and the functionality of the cocking mechanism are convenient no matter what style of shooting you enjoy.

Accuracy is 0.20" center-to-center. You won't find too many pistols in this price range that can brag about that kind of accuracy! The P3 is perfect for 10-meter target shooting, but you'll end up doing a lot more with the gun. Plinking, shooting spinners, and popping tin cans are loads of fun, and the P3 is up to the challenge!

Things I liked: After much consideration, decided to step up from the Beeman P17 (MIC) to the Beeman P3 (MIG by Weihrauch). The P3 overall has a better build, a better finish and a more solid feel in the hand. Components are machined stainless steel (sears, springs, pins, hammer, cams, valve parts) and the external trigger, safety and over lever lock parts are aluminum. Hammer, sears and cams have very squared and trued contact surface areas that provide smooth interactions and increase reliability. Out-of-the-box, the excellent precision 2-stage trigger has a 1st stage 6oz-1\2" adjustable pull, with a crisp break-like-glass 2nd stage set at 15oz...Nice! The P3 and P17 shoot about the same velocity and have similar accuracy (possibly P3 a slight hair better). Both have 15oz triggers (P3 2-stage, my P17 single stage-after mod), both sears break like glass, both handle almost identically, both have excellent accuracy and both load pellets - compress pneumatics (over lever pump) equally!

Things I would have changed: The P3 safety selector "on my unit" is very stiff and requires a lot of effort to take off safety...gotten use to it now, but could be made easier.

What others should know: When I don't pull a round, with the iron sights I was able to quickly zero in my POA and readily shoot 10 yard 5-shot cloverleaf groupings within a .250 spread (RWS Hobby 7.0g WCs)! The exterior texture finish is rugged and tactile and grip ergonomics is near perfect. Overall weight is well balanced and the pistol has a solid feel in the hand. When I don't pull a round, with the iron sights I was able to quickly zero in my POA and readily shoot 10 yard 5-shot cloverleaf groupings within a .250 spread (RWS Hobby 7.0g WCs)! IMHO, if your wanting\needing the extra durability the P3 offers, or possibly the reliability\longevity it may bring, even though it appears at this time to be a relative equal in the accuracy department, then 7X the investment certainly could be worth it! However, if you want\need to be frugal with your air gun investment, willing to put in the time and effort to tinker-repair-upgrade-mod a P17 (if\when needed), then this option is certainly also woth it!

Things I liked: ACCURATE! Fun to shoot, trigger is phenomenal

Things I would have changed: No need for a fake slide release or magazine ejector

What others should know: Loading a pellet takes some getting used to but it's a breeze after a day or two, I can load wadcutters without looking or fumbling around. The trick is setting the edge of the pellet's head in the bore and tipping it into place. I'm shooting RWS Meisters and at 10 yards with the open sights I can usually make a nice clover. I have no regrets about spending the extra money on this as opposed to the Chinese version

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: I gave away my P3 a few years back because my P 17 seemed every bit as good, which in most ways it is. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But I still missed that extra edge of accuracy and feel I get from a P3. I have an HW 75 and several beautiful custom Crosman CO2 pistols for target shooting, and a CP 88 and a Beretta XX Treme for fun. It was gnawing at me to get another P 3. Really glad I did. For fun, skill and accuracy it falls right in between my higher end skill guns and the replica repeaters. It is simply one the best non-competition competition-grade airguns ever created.

Things I would have changed: I have always had an issue with the extreme smoothness of the grip. Although it feels good in the hand, I could never really get firm and stable purchase. I bought some grip tape and took some time to apply it on those areas where the key parts of my hand need to feel stable and firm. Worked wonders. Grip tape costs about $4. Cocking the gun is still somewhere between not too, too bad and ridiculous. Because of the awkwardness when trying to get leverage, I don't think it would be hard to dislodge the night sights plastic. But if that is the price for such simplicity, accuracy, and no CO2, I can live with that, easily.

    • Thomas from USA asked:

      Does this pistol have tru glo inserts in the rear sight or just the front sight?

      • Timothy from USA:

        Tru Glo both front and rear. Although the close up picture does not show that. Great pistol but I wish it did not have tru glo.
