Review this product
12 January 2009  

Things I liked: Sights, accuracy and "feel". Trigger is very good and the metal construction should provide good durability.
Things I would have changed: Used it for a few days then gave it away. Not easy to load, not very powerful. The same "rant" I have concerning the P1. With Beeman's eagerness to make an air gun look like a firearm there are just too many compromises. Hard to cock, difficult to load, all as a result of trying to make an airgun look like something it is not. My Beeman Tempest is a much better design. Easy to cock, easy to load and it looks like what it is... an air pistol. I don't expect this to be published, as my review of the P1 was not, for the same reasons. Replicas should be limited to C02, this would not degrade the function. If you must have a Beeman, I'd buy the P1. Easier to load and more powerful, even if it looks like a Colt 1911 with some kind of serious bloating of the receiver.
What others should know: I would pass on the P1 and P3 and buy the RWS P5. Great sights and trigger, more power and very easy to cock and load. There will be complaints that it looks like an air pistol....fine by me. Form should follow function. If I want a firearm I'll buy one, rather than a "replica" that looks like a mutant copy. One downside... the RWS P5 does not provide a rail to mount a scope. Hopefully, RWS will come out with a scope mountable version. I would buy it at once.

Things I liked: This is a great air pistol. For those of you that are firearms users I recommend you get one of these to help with your technique with shooting. Great accuracy
Things I would have changed: Has an odd way of loading the pellet and for right handers the safety isn't very convenient. It is on the left side of the frame.

Things I liked: It shoots and feels like the real thing. Accurate.
Things I would have changed: Nothing,but the loading probem I have..
What others should know: MY p3 seems to only shoot daisy wadcutters. I'VE ORDERED A VARITY OF BRAND'S OF PELLETS. They aren't here yet. The two beeman brands I have for my rifle; have to be seat with a rod. I don't know if this is normal or not. Any other owners please respond to this review.

Things I liked: Quality, accuracy, fit & finish...a nice example of German quality.
Things I would have changed: nothing!...maybe more power!
What others should know: I own the Weirauch HW 40, which I'm told is essentially the same gun. As stated a well-finished and designed air pistol. Feels like a .40 semi-auto in the hand- very comfortable. Been shooting this for about 2 yrs.,very impressed!

Things I liked: Excellent quality construction. Bad boy looks & excellent finish on the pistol. It looks good and feels good when your shooting it. Features nice adjustable sights and has good power. Accurate once you get used to the trigger.
Things I would have changed: The price. In this case, I'd say the Weihrauch model would be a better value for money.
What others should know: The trigger on mine, came from the factory with about a 1.5 trigger pull. Set VERY light. Take extra care and precautions when first firing the pistol. You can easily discharge it when you did not intend to.
