I accidently found this pistol while at a pawn shop. With no expectations I took it to work and tried it out. I was amazed at it’s accuracy and power. To this day I am still excited for my purchase and look forward to being able to pass it down in the future.

Purchased Beeman P1 (.177) new from Airguns of Arizona based upon Beeman’s energy claims and their online claim that they chrony guns before delivery. They didn’t test my gun or they would not have shipped it! My biggest dissapointment in 25 years of airgunning! This P1 has never produced more than 75% of the advertised energy level at any temperature or with any pellet. Its best strings average 4.3 FPE vs. 5.6 FPE advertised in Beeman’s 2009 catalogue. CPL 7.9 grain pellets chrony at 490 FPS instead of 565 FPS on Hi power. It dents tin cans, won’t penetrate. Pellets just barely penetrate a phone book. Getting what I paid for is not going to be easy or cheap! But, I will prevail because I will not be ripped off!

Sent fax to Beeman customer service, never responded. My attorney wrote a detailed letter to Beeman President Eck, he never responded. The Beeman lifetime warranty regarding defects in material and workmanship appears to be as worthless as the gun itself. The “war” with Beeman is just starting, my attorney is not only a pitbull, he is also an airgunner and my husband.

I bought my Beeman P1(.177)used in the box from a Pawn Shop in 1995. It has served me well. Both of the power levels have their advantages. For training the low power is great. The lower velocity trains you to follow through on your shots. If you shoot and forget it will let you know with a flyer. If you jerk the trigger–another flyer. The higher power full cock is not as sensitive to movement due to the fact the pellet clears the barrel quicker and it hits just as hard as a Crossman 760 with 10 pumps.

For plinking, site in at full power. The reason for this is at about 10m (33ft.)+/- at point of aim the pellet hits dead on. However, at 30-40 yards you can hit coke can size target without changing you sights. This is due to the pellet being effected more by the recoil at the lower velocity. Due to the muzzle rising before the pellet clears the barrel you have built in Kentucky Wendage. Actually, hold over. (If sighted in at the low power setting shooting at the high power setting will result in hits about 1 1/2″ low at about 10m. Just the opposite.)

My favorate targets are spent shotgun shells. Great feed back when you hit one.
