Things I liked: The price, the great trigger, the low noise, very good accuracy.
Things I would have changed: Sights could be a little finer for target shooting, but they are very acceptable for this gun's accuracy.
What others should know: This is the best airgun for the money that I have ever owned. I own nicer guns, and more accurate guns, but I shoot this one the most. Mine has been 100% reliable. With a 3-9x32 bushnell rifle scope set at 9x and a sandbag rest I can reliably get 5 pellets into a 5/8" target at 10 meters. 10 shots will usually open the group up to 3/4". I usually shoot crosman premier domed hp's. Offhand, the gun is very easy to shoot well. It balances very nicely, the sights are excellent, and the trigger breaks at just 1 lb.-10 oz. after some break-in. Offhand unsupported groups are typically about 3/4" for 5 shots at 10 meters. I have shot some sub .5" 5-shot groups from a rest, but the average for the crosman premier hp's is about 5/8".

Things I liked:  Solid feel, weight, trigger and design of the gun.
Things I would have changed:  The people that put the gun together.
What others should know:  These guns are well worth the money if you can work on them a little bit. The first thing I did was put some Teflon tape on the screw which holds the sight in place to keep it from creeping. Also I took the O-ring out where the barrel meets the air chamber and made a gasket out of typing paper the same size as the O-ring. Then I put it in place then I put the O-ring back in. Also the barrel can be loosened up and slid forward to help tighten up the O-ring. The pins in the gun have a problem of wanting to come out so I have put some set screws where there are holes all ready drilled out. Be careful if you do this the set screws have to be tiny. On the air chamber it self there is a set screw on the end of piston shaft. Before you pull the piston mark it so it goes in the same way it came out. Loosen the set screw and slide the pin out now the piston is ready to come out. Once the piston is out clean it up and take the O-ring off and clean out the grove. Next clean out the shaft. Once everything is cleaned out I take Valvoline sae 30 moter oil dip my in it and oil the shaft, it takes very little oil to do this, Then with the piston I will lube the grove and put the O-ring back on giving it a twist, then lightly lube the piston and slide it back in the same way it came out. Now you are in business. It is easy to pull the piston to clean so I will do this every 1500 pellets. A good hardware store sells the O-rings. I hope this helps some of you out Since I have done these things I have shot several thousand pellets through the gun with out any problem. The gun will blow your mind when you see how accurate it is. Go to the blog on the P 3 to get more info.

Things I liked: Look, feel, trigger, accuracy, price.
Things I would have changed: The o ring at the tip of the valve buried deep inside. This was the source of the leaks in both of my guns.
What others should know: If you can work on things, these are a great bargain. If not, avoid the hassles. Both of mine leaked within a couple of hundred rounds. I replaced the valve o ring with a no. 006 and the pump o ring with a 116 and both guns have been happy since. Trigger problems seem to be caused by the springs inside the grip together with burrs on parts in there that can actually cut through the springs. Again, if you don't like working on mechanical stuff, avoid this gun!!

Things I liked: This gun flat out feels good in my hand. I like the heft and solid feel of the gun. Works great with a red dot scope (don't buy the Beeman red dot package deal, that scope is horrible, I replaced it day 1)
Things I would have changed: I would like to Beeman, or whoever actually owns the Beeman name these days, to take a little interest in quality control. I bought 2 of these 3 weeks ago. 1 is on the way back for a MAJOR air leak and intermittent trigger problem (like not firing the gun properly)! The other was supposed to be my fathers but I started shooting it 2 days ago to make sure it was okay.... Guess what..... Major air leak after only ~ 150 shots.
What others should know: I like this gun. I'm thinking of keeping the 2nd one and learning to work on it myself. I can live with a $50 loss but I SHOULDN"T HAVE TOO. If you but this gun and have ANY issues - make sure your retailer or the manufacturer know about it. It's up the the consumer to make sure that folks know we want quality products. I've been shooting a crappy CO2 pistols for 15 years. I need to shoot at 6 inch targets instead of half inchers, but the gun still WORKS.
