First impression, I REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE THIS PISTOL!!!

It is much easier to cock and a lot quieter than my Beeman P17. Been shooting  it for hours and meant to post a quick review earlier but was having just too much fun shooting it. I was using Crosman Premier Match Pellets (Wadcutters) with open sights and was drilling a hole into a tree stump at 15 yards off hand and the plastic golf balls are fun to plink at out to 50 yards once holdover is mastered.

It is really neat to pull the hammer back to shoot it and the trigger is very nice the way it is set. I really think this one is worth the money and would highly recommend buying one of these to anyone. I have a feeling it is going to be one of my favorite air pistols! This thing is really accurate to shoot that can be shot for extended periods of time without fatigue and is one of the quieter pistols to shoot.

I am going to go shoot it again so more later...

I was thinking at least something like a Burris Fastfire III with  a 11mm to Picatinny adaptor 

or a UTG SWAT 3-12x44 compact rifle scope or perhaps even a Bug Buster 3-12x.

Shot two handed sitting off of my knee. Should get much tighter groups if shot off of a pistol vice to eliminate the human factor. Scope is a cheap 1.5-6x24 rifle scope with day light illuminated center triangle reticle. No batteries needed and does not need much ambient light.

Here is a link-

10 shots with 7.4gr Crosman Premier Pointeds straight out of the tin. The one lower shot is not a flier and was used as point of aim at 25 yards.

I have to say it is really accurate for a low velocity self contained single stroke pump air pistol.

Bad news is that it no longer fits inside that nice soft pistol case with the scope and mounts.

I have located a MINT Beeman P2 safe queen and will report how it compares to my HW75 when it arrives later this week. Seller mentioned he test fired and it shot almost as hard as his Beeman P1 and was really surprised.

Awesome find! You must have good sources. I wonder how many "P2's" were made...?

I am unsure how many P2's were made but I buy a lot of guns including some used and always ask the sellers or dealers if they know anyone with a P2 or other guns that I am looking for and eventually I get connected with a seller. Luckily it cost less than a new HW75 but it wasn't an exceptional deal because I paid the seller's asking price and if I didn't he told me he wouldn't mind just keeping it. Tried negotiating on the price but it was a no go but I bought it anyway along with some other match pistols that are no longer produced and are hard to find on the used market.

I have this weakness for match rifles and pistols and sporter rifles and pistols that have match grade accuracy.

Unfortunately it wasn't $220 like how Mike paid. It was almost double that and justified buying it since I know it is hard to find on the used market and really like my HW75.

I am curious if this P2 will shoot hotter than my HW75 since the seller stated it was almost as powerful as his P1.

Well...I hate to go all left-wing tree-huggy on ya, but it makes me sad that you are using the local songbirds as targets. The little green fellow looks like some kind of warbler, and doves, if seasonal game birds, are otherwise protected. Native birds are under stress everywhere, and don't need us reducing their numbers.

If you must perforate the little neighbors, please stick with invasive pests like English sparrows or starlings.

Hotair - It appears you have mananged to kill a neotropical warbler (looks like a female common yellowthroat). That happens to be a Federal offense.... ' Might want to keep your eyes open for a game warden approaching you in the near future. Big mistake idiot...….

The bigger mistake is posting evidence on a website. My son is big on video scopes. Asking me if I want one. "Hell no!" Too much evidence. My grandkid was going through my cell phone photos looking for her riding pics. "Grandpa, who shot all these animals?" 😮 "Gimme that phone!" 😳

Just imagine the flack all the other "long range" hunter videophiles out there posting videos on shooting 100+ yard shots on live game. How humane or unethical is that? Some even close to 200 yards with their airguns.

NO EVIDENCE IS GOOD EVIDENCE GOOD POINT!!!

I wonder (REALLY WONDER) WHY on EARTH people post such nonsense shooting live animals past 100 yards with their airguns and post them for everyone in the world to see? I CONCUR...IDIOTS!!!

They even LAUGH about it on video!!!

I guess it brings in the crowd...

I just couldn't bring myself to pull the practical joke I was planning. Too many irons in the fire right now for the time it would take to do it. It came in black as coal. I was going to tape it off, accent it with silver/gray like the photo made it look and see how many would fall for it and order one. I never said I wasn't a dick. 🤨  I even had the paint out and just thought "I don't have the time to do it right". I don't know if it's the included cheap Beeman Red Dot or what but it shoots terrible.

As far as the Athlon FF scope I really had no use for it. I'd just never tried one. I'm still deciding on a 25 meter gun to use and put it on my FX Streamline to try. I'd taken that gun out of the running and now it's back in. I've no need to adjust the focal plane with it left set at 24. My accuracy increased noticeably using that scope on the gun. I like side wheels so I took an inexpensive UTG 60mm and turned the turret mounting rubber inside out to sand it down. That increased the ID to slide over the Athlon parallax turret.  I've done that trick on a couple scopes that only have expensive aftermarket wheel options. Normally the distance yardage lines are close. Not on the Athlon. I mounted it so the wheel markings were in front. I can still see the turret so no big deal. I actually like the way the retical  grows as it zooms. Where most my shooting would be it's nice and visible.

Sure. I'll take some photos and do a little DIY on it. This reminded me to order a couple spares. I used my last two on the Athlon and a Nightforce I just got.
