I have had to strip, fix and re-assemble this pistol several times. I have used several spare O-rings. The pistol rarely fires more than 50 shots before requiring maintenance. I have since bought a Weirauch HW40, at just over twice the price of the Beeman, and I have never had a problem with the latter! The build quality of the Beeman simply does not approach that of the HW40. (read more)

I have read several reviews of the Beeman P-17 and found the o-rings rapidly wear until the pistol can no longer hold pressure. There are a dozen YouTube videos that address this issue. Anyway, in one of the videos, the person gave out the dimensions of the o-rings in case the owner of a P-17 would like to purchase them for a rebuild. Well, I wrote down what he said and found all three of the o-rings in this kit that can be purchased at Amazon dot com. This kit is named: Stalwart... (read more)

The Beeman P17 is an excellent value for someone interested in a 4.5 mm (.177 cal) target air pistol. Before you buy, think about what it is that you intend to use an airgun for. If you wish to shoot 10 meter air pistol targets and stay in the black at very low cost, this pistol is definitely worth three times what it is sold for. If you want rapidly to make many tiny dents in a barn door from 5 meters or otherwise "plink around", then skip the P17 and buy the CO2 powered BB "action pistol"... (read more)

This gun is a piece of junk! It is utter garbage! Though it feels extremely comfortable in hand and is excellently balanced - one of the sweetest pistols to hold - it just doesn't last. Mine was purchased brand new and lasted about four hours in total - about an hour of shooting on each of four different days. It was extremely powerful for a total of about three-and-a-half hours and then I started to notice a drop in power. Then on some shots it wouldn't fire the pellet at all - there would... (read more)

I bought the Beeman P17 last summer when I was bored and had a huge stack of old beer bottles I had to dispose of somehow. Though I had many options, the P17 stuck out to me as the weapon of choice.
I instantly fell in love with the gun and spent many hours shooting whatever I could find, and even bruised my hand from cocking it so much every day. It felt great in my (albeit oversized) hand, and shattered bottles like none other. The gun has a great deal of force and it's accurate enough to... (read more)

Decided to buy this Beeman P17 pistol as looked and felt nice also reasonably priced for this manufacturer, however first one broke after a handfull of pellets took it back to my local dealer who contacted me after a few days and said beeman will replace the pistol for a brand new one rightly so! When i got this one home it too lasted all of about 20 shots and began leaking air all over the place. (read more)

Was looking for a used P3 - no luck in finding one; so when my local CT had a P17 on sale at 1/2 price ($49.95) - decided to try it out.
After a couple of weeks of shooting it; VERY happy with it! Added some white-out to the sights for improved visibility; also a red-dot sight for improved accuracy.
Good power; accurate; nice trigger; seems to be well-made - and lots of places to go for info IF it ever needs to be fixed (as there DO seem to be a lot with problems out there). (read more)

Marksman 2004/Beeman P17/Beeman 2006(when sold w/ red dot sight)
DO NOT BUY!!!
Junk! Garbage! Trash!
Now don ' t get me wrong,. I ' m not one of those grumpy old men who thinks that everything is junk. There are still some real airgun values out there such as the Crosman 1377 and 2240. However, the Marksman 2004 also known as the Beeman P17 or the Beeman 2006 is a junk gun that works for about 10 minutes then starts leaking air from various places. How do I know? I tried several of them... (read more)

The Beeman P17 is exactly the same gun as the 2004e I think just a different number stamped on it, maybe for a different market. Recently I have used multi shot C02 pistols, Walther cp99, Crosman 357 with 8 or 10 shot clips in them but I bought this Beeman to keep in my fishing box to see off Rats at close quarters. Obviously the Rats must know I have a new gun so they have kept away but firing at targets and cans in my back garden there is no doubt in my mind that it is more powerfull and... (read more)

The gun in many respects is just a great little gun and fun to shoot, but the reliability leaves much to be desired. Contacted the store that I bought it from and they said bring it back. (read more)

Good accuracy due to long barrel, first shot same velocity as 50th 'cause no lower pressure in CO2 tanks to slow you down, good speed; 410 fps considering (read more)
