I followed the instructions to a t.... Oh wait there were no instructions.

None I can think of

Misfired on the very first attempt in the bullet is jammed in the gun making it useless

By PaulJune 21, 2020 Verified Purchase

Too good to be true, and it was. Right out of the bubble-pack the safety slide switch fell out and on the floor. The BB-sized click set rolled across my office (at least I saw it or I would never have figured out the problem). I retrieved the parts and after about 30 minutes deduced that the BB was held in place by a small spring that forced the BB against two v-notches in the side of the safety cavity. I got it to work one time using a spring out of a ballpoint pen, but on the second try the safety slide fell out again. Further, while I was looking for the pieces on the floor, I barely touched the trigger and the cocked gun went off. Thankfully no harm done but not a good thing. This is going in the trash, cheap and too dangerous.

Not a thing

By Burton G.February 10, 2020 Verified Purchase

So this is my first air powered handgun, ever. I purchased it after reading lots of reviews stating its accuracy and value were unmatched. They were understating the true nature of this air pistol. I read about folks complimenting the accuracy and power over 10 meters, or even 50 feet. Well, I shoot from 80 to 120 feet, every day and I'm stating the facts when I say this pistol is extremely accurate and very reliable, every shooting session. Sure its a "cheapie", a Chinese clone of a 300.00 German manufactured model. They had production problems, a burr issue that sliced up o-ring seals for some of the production. But wow, with a little care and willingness to tweek the weapon with You-tube guidance, this is an awesome hand-gun. I just bought my 3rd one, discounted to under 25.00, including tax and shipping. Its a gift for the guy who helped me tear-down and reseal my first P 17, after it lost power about 2000 rounds in(an o-ring seal had simply fallen out at the breech, a 30 cent fix). If you know what this is, a single shot plinking and target pistol, at its price point there is nothing, and I mean no-thing, that can compare.

Be prepared to fall in love.

Not a lot, every con, could also be just an advantage. read others' reviews, I'm here to share the love.

The feel and hold of this pistol is remarkable. It really feels that good. I received this pistol in a blister package, opened it, then throughly cleaned it, then re-lubed it. Cocking it was easy, loading it was a breeze. The trigger was a bit stiff and long. I prefer a trigger with 3 lbs or less but for less than $30 dollars this pistol is a deal. Shoots fine for a made in China air gun. Sighted it in after 100 rounds and another cleaning and a lube. Grouped extremely well at 10 yards. Grouped okay at 20 yards. 1-1/8" with Beeman HP 7.8 gr. Mostly due to the trigger pull. It has decent power. I liked the fiber optic sights. Liked the gun over all. Had my brother try it out. I loved it so much that he was planning to get one for him self.So i gave him mine and I will just pick up another one. I can handle the $29.99 price tag ! Lol

You get a pistol that feels like it was made for your hand perfectly. Easy to cock. Easy to load. Ok on power. The cost of this pistol is the same as a large pizza. The pizza is only around for a short time but this pistol will be with you for years to come.

The trigger is hard and has a long pull. But it is by no means a deal breaker. I can live with the trigger ( for $29.99 ) it's more than a bargain.

By BobOctober 23, 2019

The Beeman P17 is a nice inexpensive pistol. The grip on this is very comfortable and feels solid. I received the pistol with the sights disassembled for some reason. The gun was rattling as if thre were loose parts. When I open up the chamber, I found the sight came apart (not sure why or how since it was in a blister pack). I reassembled the sight - not knowing if it was correct. Once I was able to shoot a couple of rounds, it is accurate up to 20 - 25yards. I was using lead pellets which were fine and then I decided to use lead free pellets. The lead free pellets seem to be weak coming out of the barrel and not as much of an impact to the target. It is still good for everyday plinking. The reload was a little challenging at first. It was easy to open up the barrel to insert the pellet but it was hard to find where teh pellet needed to be. After using a flashlight and probing around, I found where to load it. Once I placed a pellet in the "hole", the resistence to lock the pistol takes some effort. You find ways of leveraging your thigh being careful not to pinch anything!.

- Nice size - simulates a real 9mm size and weight - Nice grip - good power for the a pistol

- the sight is ok (cheaply made) - loading the pistol can be a challenge

By GlenUSAAugust 25, 2019

Perfect pistol for some indoor target practice - a bit hard to cock, probably not great for a young person. However it is still excellent for the price. This pistol helps you to slow down and make accurate shots because the loading process requires more work.

Accurate, good trigger.

Fiberoptic sights? Who thought that was a good idea on this pistol? Get the magic marker out.

By RonJuly 14, 2019 Verified Purchase

The pistol is price is listed as $29.99 but the shipping cost is $60.46 International Economy. How stupid is that?

By jimboJuly 3, 2019

Needed a replacement pistol "BB gun" for the pole barn. Over the years always used Co2 cartridge types.Like the cheap daisy and Crossman bb gun pistols. I always found my self wasting Co2 cartridges or leaving them in for months and ruining the gun. First being able to use a pellet over a round BB is bonus in the accuracy obviously. Second the break action provides consistent pressure from shot to shot. It's a tad tricky loading pellets into the back of the barrel at first. But once you get the feel for it, it's a pain but doable. The trigger is nice and smooth. With the for mentioned attributes makes this cheap little pistol very accurate. The sights are also very good for what you pay for. For $30-$35 US this thing is win all round. Has just enough power to kill small vermin up to about 15 yards. I used my friends chrony and my gun shots consistently at 430-440 fps with 7gr pellets.

No Co2 cartridges No use of inaccurate BB's Easy to oil and maintain Nice fiber optic sights Smooth two stage trigger Ability to mount red dot sight or scope if wanted 6-5/8" riffled barrel Easy to break and charge air

Loading pellets is annoying at times

By RichardUSAJuly 3, 2019 Verified Purchase

I have always been what I would call a mediocre pistol shot. I bought this pistol to get lots of practice without spending a lot of my limited funds. After carefully sighting in the Hi-Vis adjustable sights, I set-up a swinger that measures 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" at exactly 10 yards from the muzzle. At first I could barely ever hit it, but now, not even through my first 500 round tin of pellets, I'm hitting with incredible consistency! I just broke my personal best, shooting till I miss, I got 13 out of 14, %92.857. If you want an accurate, fun to shoot pistol for practice, look no further!

Hi-Vis adjustable sights crisp, breaks like glass trigger Real firearm weight and feel-Think Glock! Incredibly accurate for the price Rated at 410 fps, mine gets 435 with Crossman 7.9gr hollow points If it breaks, I can just buy a replacement!

A bit difficult to cock and load, but even my arthritic old hands can manage it! No other complaints so far

By DavidUSAMay 21, 2019 Verified Purchase

I almost passed this little jewel up. A friend of mine recommended it, and due to our friendship and the low cost of the acquisition, I purchased it. To my pleasant surprise it is a consistent, accurate training tool. My daughter, who is a police officer practices with it and always shoots expert when it comes to her in service qualification. Listen to your buddies, they didn't steer me wrong this time.

Price, accuracy and overall maintenance.

for older folks and smaller women, (no disrespect). I too have a bit of an ugh in charging it.

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.
