I bought not one, but TWO of the Beeman P17, models of this from a local retailer.
Why two, you ask?
The first one started leaking very badly after about 150 shots went through it.
Now, ordinarily, I wouldn’t have bothered exchanging, instead asking for a refund, but the leaking was the only thing wrong with it.
I mean, terrific ergonomics and decent handling, plus a trigger that really surprised me in a good way, and best of all, the little twerp of a gun can hit ping pong balls just casually sitting on my stoop from 25 yards with ease.
So, instead of a refund, I asked to try one more time.
Well, the second time around, the gun was even more accurate, then the honeymoon was over.
Yep, not even 100 shots later, and it leaked badly enough that it had lost all power to even get the pellet out of the barrel after less than two minutes!
It’s refund time, and never again on this ripoff of the Weihrauch HW40PCA.
btw…if you like the looks and features of this, but you want one that actually holds up for probably your lifetime and beyond, spend the extra cash, then grab the Weihrauch HW40PCA.
Anyone who knows much about airguns will immediately recognize the Weihrauch name and its vaunted place in airguns.
Get the Beeman P17/Marksman 2004, thanks to China garbage.
Want something you will proudly pass down to your kids and grandkids?
Get the Weihrauch HW40PCA.
In summary, if you are tempted to get this, RUN, don’t walk away.
