Great Value
October 23, 2014
This is my second air pistol purchase. My first was an IZH 46m, an amazing pistol that I gave a 5 star review. The IZH 46m recently increased $100 to $599. My Beeman P17 was less than $40 and shoots the same scores as my IZH 46m. I'm not a competitive shooter. But do shoot 10m at the CMP range at Camp Perry, OH. for fun. And in my basement at 5m. Had I purchased the Beeman first I would not have bought the IZH 46m and saved a lot of $$.
Pros:
Best pellet gun value. Trigger pull is long but very smooth.
Cons:
Made in China.

Great little plinker
September 27, 2014
Shhots great out of the box. Mine shot 3 inches and high 1 inch to the right. Made an adjust to windage and elevation and next shot in the bullseye. Trigger is fantastic for such a cheap pistol. Mine had flashing on the backstrap of the pistol grip so I took a jeweler file and some find sandpaper to it. It feels much better now. Pratical limit is about 10 yards with this pistol. Shoot sgreat!
Pros:
Lightweight Accurate
Cons:
Flashing on the back of pistol grip- eaily taken care of

How sweet it is!!!
July 29, 2014
Like some of the others, I bought this gun knowing what I was getting into. To me, fit, finish, polish, and wearable parts are easily taken care of. The selling point on this gun is the impeccable European ENGINEERING. A modestly experienced tinkerer can follow the YouTube videos (of which there are many) and do a decent tune-up. When all is said and done, you have finely engineered, precision target piece. You will have to do a little testing to find its favorite flavor of ammo (oh, the drudgery of ALL that shooting), but when you are done, I am confident you will be able to ream out the bull's-eye at 10 to 15 meters. About cocking and loading: I am a full-grown adult at 6'0",with HUGE hands. Yes, loading was a problem at first, but after 50 or so rounds it was 2nd nature. I didn't have to think about it. As for cocking, it IS an effort and you really have to be aware of pinch points. I've lost track of how many times my shirt wound up caught up in the gun. All in all, this is the best 40 bucks I EVER spent. I got way more value than I paid for. Would I recommend this gun to a friend? In a heartbeat and I have and to strangers shopping for air-guns in Walmart. One thing I am not sure about; the advertisement claims a metal "slide". Mine is plastic. Maybe the newer production has gone back to the metal slide?
Pros:
Nice heft and balance, silky smooth trigger pull, short take-up, crisp let-off. This gun is well constructed. The plastic was clean and I had no need to trim flash. As I did my tune I inspected the trigger group for fit and function. While it was obvious the parts were stamped rather than milled, there were no burrs and everything functioned flawlessly. Just as an aside, I may further disassemble it and polish the trigger mechanism to see if I can lighten it a little, but it is perfectly acceptable as it is
Cons:
While the sights are acceptable, to me they are the worst part about this gun. They are pretty flimsy and easily knocked askew while cocking

Wow!! You get so much for so little! It's accurate and has decent power. You can dry fire it. It looks cool too! It has a really smooth trigger too. The only complaint I have is that it's a little hard to cock.
Pros:
accuracy look and feel trigger
Cons:
hard to cock

Nice Pistol
January 7, 2014
The P17 has a nice weight and feel. I like that the safety automatically engages when you open the pistol to load it. I am a lefty shooter so I keep my trigger finger over the safety when opening, loading and cocking the pistol. When ready to shoot I can slide the safety off and then put my finger on the trigger. The trigger feel is good. It is even and has a nice pull. The pistol has good power and is accurate at 25 ft. in my garage. It is not excessively loud. I've been happy using Crosman Super Match pellets with it.
Pros:
Value, accuracy and trigger pull.
Cons:
A bit difficult to cock and that you are pushing down on the rear sight when cocking it.

Outstanding for the $
July 21, 2013
I LOVE this gun! I thought what you're probably thinking; how good can a $40 gun be, right? Like the $65 Ruger is horrible, and $40 is cheap short-lived airsoft territory right? Well, I have no idea how they can make a gun of this quality for this cheap, and I plan on buying two more which should say something too. I know there are some bad reviews out there which seem to center around it leaking, so I took mine apart first thing to fix that problem (a seam in the compression tube scratches the O-ring) but it seems the factory fixed it, my tube was perfect. I took the gun completely apart to inspect and tune it, but the only real mod I did was shorten and lighten the trigger pull. The quality of the parts is amazing for the $. The tough plastic body is steel reinforced. The comp tube/piston/valve assy is high quality and all metal. The solid steel barrel is much higher quality than I expected. Looking at the pix of the P3 and HW40 mine is identical except for the chrome and name. I imagine the trigger guts are less quality, but they work fine and are built to last. The velocity is accurate too, not some alloy exaggeration, so 410 with standard 7.9gr lead, and more with lighter lead. The weight and balance are good, it's not too heavy or nose heavy like most air pistols. Look at this 2006 report which gives it good marks as well; http://tinyurl.com/PYRP3 It is also pretty quiet and recoilless. Well it has a teeny recoil, but nothing compared to a spring gun, and it is not hold sensitive.
Cons:
Lose the chrome, who does that? I blued the chrome on mine and it looks sooo much better. Make the glow insert on the rear sight better, the glow part is exposed and breaks because you need to press directly on it to pump it. That's it, extremely minor complaints. My only other complaint is I didn't buy it sooner.

No Co2 required
April 8, 2013
This gun is perfect for my basement shooting range. I did deburr the little hole in the compression cylinder right off the bat and keep it well lubed.
Pros:
Price No co2 cartridges to buy Consistent power and accuracy

It's a great pellet gun especially with as low of a price as it is.
October 16, 2012
It's very accurate I never miss with it. The trigger has a really nice pull. It's a little hard to load when you first get it but you get used to it. I'd say the stock sights are actually very accurate.
Pros:
Great accuracy, the gun has a good appearance, great trigger, well of course it being German engineered, it kicks butt.
Cons:
Just a little hard to load until you get used to the pressure.

Fun and powerful
June 26, 2012
This gun packs a punch. The single pump is all it needs to be loud, proud, and hit your mark. That is, if you can use the sights effectively. A gun with this much apparent power would be more accurate with better sights. This gun also seems to be overpriced for the overall experience gained from it. If you want an intimidating force with some target practice, then this gun might do the trick. But the price seems to outweigh the overall benefit of the gun.
Cons:
-Price

Cool Pistol
May 8, 2012
Love it. We wanted something inexpensive, non CO2, and accurate. That is exactly what the P17 delivers. This is a great little pistol plinker. Hard to cock for kids Hard to load for adults with large hands
Pros:
Price Cheap to shoot all day - NO CO2 needed accurate
Cons:
a bit hard to load a pellet especially if you have large hands. hard for a smaller person to cock the single stroke is awkward to get the proper leverage.

Great Pistol . . . Needs Tuned bfore you rate.
January 12, 2012
This is a licensed Chinese Copy of the Weihrauch HW 40 or Beeman P3. Where the P3 is German Manufactured, this is made in China. I have not held or shot either of the German namesakes, but I expect the overall attention to detail to be a little better. It is well known that the O-rings in the P17s need replaced right out of the box. Also, the air intake hole needs de-burred. Check all of the allen screws and consider locktite. All in all a half hour job with minimal experience and equipment. The trade off is you get a real nice shooter for $40 instead of $220. Is the P3 or Weihrauch HW 40 worth it? Maybe to some but not to me. I would compare this pistol to the Crosman 1377. I have several 1377s and love them but they require a lot of work to get to the level of a nice shooter as well. I think the p17 is closer to ready out of the box than the 1377. And, I think the 1377 has broader range of application once brought up to par. I think the 1377 is more user friendly to younger shooters due to its ease of loading and ease of pumping. You can't go wrong with either as long as you are willing to tune them up and care for them.
Pros:
Great Trigger Nice Adjustable Back Sight Accurate. . . Nickel to Quarter sized groups @10yds off rest Great Value for the money after a little work!
Cons:
Difficult cocking Many Pinch Points during cocking. Does Not Teach Good Muzzle Control Techniques while cocking Difficult to Load Pellets Needs a Little work .. High Viz Sight, New O-rings, Tightening set screws

Beeman P17 everyone should have one.
November 30, 2011
First of all this gun is a solid gun. Even though its made of composite plastics it has the feel and weight of a 9mm. I decided to chronograph it right out of the box and 50 shots later it still shoots around 450 fps consistently using crossman destroyer ex pellets. Accuracy is great with this gun. Groupings were in the 1 to 1 1/2 inch range at 10 and 15 yards. I was pinking off pop cans at 20 yards no problem. Cocking requires some effort but not bad for an adult. Kids might need some help depending on age and size. Noise level is low to medium. Able to shot in residential neighborhood with no problems and best of all there is no kick with this gun which makes it ideal for training a first time shooter and for great accuracy. As stated above everyone most have one espeacially at $35.99
Pros:
Price, Construction of gun and accuracy.
Cons:
loading pellets could be tricky for stubby fingered people.

Great value
November 14, 2011
This gun has become my favorite air pistol. It has good velocity for a single pump pistol and is accurate. Pointed pellets are easier to load especially if you have big fingers. It's just right for my basement shooting range and has the look and feel of a .40 caliber pistol.

Best air pistol for the money.

If you are looking for a decent shooter for just a few bucks, this one works great. The pump action takes a little energy, but the powerful piston powerplant is worth the effort.
