Maintenance issues are easy to fix. 2 allen wrenches and a pair of needle nose for tools. The main piston oring and once had to do the valve. Superlube silicone grease. So 4 guns all have been overhauled once or twice in 9 years. used almost 3 tins of 750 count winchester pellets

Very accurate at 10 yards INDOORS. Like the German made unit, this has the good barrel. That P3 cost about $300. Difference being the quality and trigger. Actually I like the trigger as is [there is screw to adjust it but only pull length] for a single stage. We have 4 of them and shoot down the hall from the living room. 36 feet to a 5 inch box with rags and paper target on front.

Contests aside, the loading and cocking is not much fun. Use a round node pellet in the barrel while opened all the way. WATCH YOUR FINGERS AND clothes as you press it closed. About 25 lbs of force required [give or take]

Nice to have for winter shooting in the basement. I bought two for my Grandson's.

Pros: Good feel in my hand, and fits well. Sights being Fiber are VERY NICE, and much better than Original Sights with no Fiber. Well Built Pistol, and has a Good Trigger. Easy to lube the Air Chamber and will be easy to replace the O-Ring when it's required.

Cons: Hard to Load, until you get it figured out. Hard to Close, but it's not too bad if you rest it on your leg and press.

Bought on recommendation. Very Accurate Pistol. Entirely satisfied

Very accurate with a fantastic trigger.

Buyer beware!

Absolutely none.

Everything. First, nearly impossible to pump. My (397 at 8 pumps is a breeze in comparison). The description says it's 20lb cocking effort, I'd say it's near 40lb and I'm a fit individual. On the chronograph shots varied up to 75 fps! The rear sight is a nightmare and loosens after adjustments due to slamming of the barrel/arm to frame on closing when pumping it. Complete junk. Buy anything else. These used to sell for around $30 even at that price I'd consider them junk. Don't waste $60 on this thing. You've been warned...

A hefty and solid single-shooter that sends pellets on a very flat trajectory - it's become my favorite for plinking cans at ranges up to 40 meters. Yes the loading mechanism is strange and awkward but you get the hang of it. Likewise there is the real potential of pinching your hand in the cocking lever but I'll bet you won't make that mistake twice. The automatic safety makes sure you don't put a pellet into your leg while cocking - it's a heavy and reliable switch. The trigger is equally crisp and solid. All things considered this piece is a terrific value for the price, you can step up to the more expensive models if money is burning a hole in your pocket but otherwise just get one of these and smile.

A cheap matching holster would be nice.

By Frank BradleyJune 15, 2022 Verified Purchase

If you want a very good air pistol for a year or so it's a great. Longterm it's junk.


Owned two and both ended up as Paper weights after the warranty expired. Both lost power and became inoperable. E-mails to Customers service are never answered. Although I did talk to someone in customer service who advised to to e-mail . That was two years ago. I'm still waiting.

By KurtMay 9, 2022

A bit finicky to load. Pointed pellets are easiest. Wear a leather glove and cock on a flat surface... easy.

The trigger is phenomenal. I wish all my centerfire/rimfires had a trigger this nice. Seriously. Very accurate. Consistent power. Decent adjustable sights. Very pleased.

At this price point, not much to complain about.

By Ronnie USAJanuary 15, 2022

great trigger!

By HarlanUSADecember 30, 2021

Get the angled tip tweezers - it takes seconds to reload and saves loads of frustration. This alone makes shooting this gun so much more fun! For the price, this is a great value.

The hand feel and weight are terrific. The accuracy with open sights and optics are superb.

This single stroke pumper takes some muscle to close. Loading pellets is a HUGE PAIN -- unless you get some angled tip tweezers which makes it a breeze.

Ok I've had bad luck I guess , I bought 1 on sale within 60 days the safety switch fell off someplace and I called Beeman they replaced the gun told me to keep the old one , now it shoots just no safety, after about a month I noticed the safety switch was gone on the 2nd gun as well anyone else have this problem?

asked James from USA

Can I get this one to India ? I love this gun to target practice.

asked SOORAJ from India

The following documents are needed before order approval, and to clear Customs. Letter from rifle club, order district/state/national rifle association certifying importer as shooter. Original ID card of associations mentioned. Authorization letter in favor of UPS (obtained from UPS). Address proof with photo ID (driving license, Aadhar card). KYC documents (obtained from UPS).

Adam from USA

Is this plastic?

asked Kandi bhupathi from India

is this gun P17 a multi pump or just a single pump ?

asked binoe from Canada

Single pump

Gabriel from USA

How does AGD allow such misinformation in these questions that have been here since 2012?

asked John Appears with your question

What is the difference between the Beeman P-3 and the Beeman P-17? They look identical except for price.

asked Raymond Tomory

The P3 has a much better trigger, otherwise they are almost identical and one is not more accurate than the other. The P17 trigger is a long pull with no definitive break. It takes practice to be able to predict when it will release. My P17 is probably close to ten years old and works just fine, but may be different than what is being produced today.

Lynn from USA

P3 is manufactured in Germany I believe and is supposed to be better finish quality. The p 17 cost a lot less, is made in China and is not finished as nicely. I own a p17 and it is 100 percent fine.

Gabriel from USA

will this gun fire darts?

asked Gary from USA


Gabriel from USA many pellets does this hold at one time?


One. Single shot single pump.

Gabriel from USA

Para envíos a España?

asked Luis

What is the length of the pistol?

asked Fred

Mine shoots pellets

asked Merlin from USA

Yes. Yes it does.

Gabriel from USA

Is this a bb or pellet gun and would a 11 year boy be able to cock it?

asked jz

Pellet and yes he might but it's very hard to do and tricky he will get his fingers caught and it will hurt. I highly recommend something else.

Gabriel from USA

Does this gun shoot bbs or just pellets?

asked jz


Gabriel from USA

Good day. I'm from Poland and I would like to buy this gun. Is it possible to ship to Poland? What would the price be for a day out and how would it look with the servant? In Poland the permissible airgun strength is 17J without permission.

asked Sebastian

Can anyone give me a suggestion on why I cannot upload pictures on the reviews?. Every time I try I get a message saying that your pictures could not be saved. The pictures are .jpg, about 60 kb and sent from a Dell PC. Also tried sending them from Sony laptop with the same result.

asked Ronald from USA

Can this be pumped more then once for higher fps, or is it one pump only?

asked Charles from USA

It's one pump only.

Randall from USA

Hello I have been getting delays between pulling the trigger and the shot going off. Would you know how to solve the problem?

asked Van Bogaert from Belgium

I suppose it's possible if there was too much friction at the sears. If you're willing to take it apart I can tell you where to look. I think it's the wire inside the hammer that acts as a guide for the secondary sear. This guide is a tight fit so I'd think any changes like thicker wire, sheetmetal sear, or rough edge from the stamping the sear could hold it up. It'll make sense when you see it. Write me at chevota at hotmail and I'll send some pix. Mine was rather tight but worked, still I sanded the wire a bit so the sear had room to move freely.


any idea how far it will shoot the pellet?

asked george

Depends on many factors, but if you google "Chairgun", a free program, you can plug in your numbers and it will tell you. I was curious and plugged it in and came up with 150-270 yards depending on the pellet used.


Is the beeman P17 .177 caliber air pistol worth the money ?

asked nelson

It's worth 3 times the money. It is without a doubt the best deal in air pistols. It's my new favorite, taking the place of my old which was the Webley Tempest


Is this gun all metal?

asked Leon

It has all metal internals, but the body is plastic. However the body is a high quality plastic and it's steel reinforced over the full length.


Whats the main difference between the P17 & the P3?

asked James Sanford

The P3 is a true low end target gun; the P17 is a much cheaper clone. Externally they appear identical, but inside the P3 has better machining and assembly. Out of the box the P17 is a terrific value. With some tweaking, it can be a pretty nice gun, but eventually the trigger will do strange things, either firing when it is pumped or refusing to fire when the trigger is pulled. It's just not as tightly tolerance and spec'd as the P3. I have 2 each P3's, one in 22 and one in 177 and enjoy them both. They have better precision and accuracy, more consistent power, and triggers that are very sweet and predictable compared to the P17. Neither appear very pellet-fussy. But you have to weigh the value of $35 versus $350. I'm always looking for used bargains in either the P17 or the P3, and they all reside in my kit to shoot in the backyard at a moment's notice.

Alan from USA

I've owned two p17's and now have the P3. On both p17's the trigger failed with a week. In each case it was loaded and cocked but wouldn't fire. The top of the p17 had sharp edges that dug into my hand when cocking the gun. The gun also smelled from some chemical and the package stated stated that the gun contained substances known to cause cancer. The p3 is much better quality. It's a bit easier to cock, the edges are not sharp like on the p17, so they don't dig into your hand when cocking it. It has worked flawlessly with now over 2000 rounds through it. Fixing the p17 is not so easy as people suggest. First of all the tiny lug you unscrew to remove the handle ( in order to work on the trigger) gets stripped VERY easily, and then you can't put it back on. The trigger mechanism is complex and you can't just tug at it. You need some watchmaking-type skills.

Alan from USA

I too cannot say for sure because I have never seen a P3 or HW40 in person, but looking at pix of those guns in the open position I cannot see any difference except the chrome and of course the name on the side. The quality of this gun is actually quite good, and it's outstanding for the price, unbelievable actually. Mine had no flaws as some mention, like sharp breech or seam in the chamber, mine was perfect and I would've believed it was a German quality P3 if it said so on the side.


I have had the same question in the past and looked around to see what I could find. Based on that research: the P17 is manufactured in China with some minor work needed to bring it up to the some of the manufacturing specs of the P3 - which is made in Europe (Germany if memory serves me correctly). For my purposes, I limit the effort to deburring the barrel opening where pellets are inserted because the pellets tend to snag on the sharp edge when the gun is new. I also deburr the opening where air exits the pump (where the o-ring is). I recently bought another P17 and it came with improved sights. They have incorporated plastic light tubes which create 2 green dots on the rear sight and one red dot on the front sight. Cheap and effective. I have a lot of fun with mine and have owned several. I have not used the P3 but based on my experience with the P17 I would never spend the extra money on the P3. Not only is the P17 cheap to acquire it is cheap to operate and fun to shoot. This gun is accurate enough for me to use for pest control (birds like my fruit trees as much as I do!) at significant range (20 - 30 yards).

Scott from USA

i cannot figure out how to load these pellets!

asked jack

this gun only shoots pellets.... not BB's. to load the pellets, pull down on the hammer and lift the top straight up.... when you locate the barrel opening, place a pellet into it and close it

Andrea from USA

I believe this gun only shoots steel bb's. Not pellets

Scott from USA

can one use bb in this gun?

asked Ryon

No, a 4.5 mm/.177 bb would just roll right out of the barrel. The Beeman P17 is a single-shot breech-loading design; pellets only. You cock it, and while it's 'broken open' you load one pellet. It's not fast, it's not a repeater, but with its rifled barrel it should be reasonably accurate. No bb's, but no CO2 either, so you can shoot it all day and never worry about running out of gas. It's a good target pistol.
