I agree with MParker. The Beeman P1, or even better, the P2 is a full size and weight 1911 style single shot one pump pistol. SUPER accurate and made as well as the powder burners. These are truly hand- me- down Heirlooms.
what optic is that?I shoot bullseye. I have been using a Crosman 2240 for basement practice.
Shoots great too!!
I know this is an old thread but felt compelled to respond... Back in the late '70s, while in my teens, I had a S&W 78G pellet pistol. The 78G looked like the Model 41 with the 7" barrel. I shot that gun to death! In 1981 I bought my Model 41 5" Heavy Barrel. You can be sure the 78G influenced the choice of my first "real" handgun... At age 22 the Model 41 was expensive ($280) compared to most handguns but I didn't care... I wanted one! Tens of thousands of rounds later the 41 still works and looks great. I've never had regrets for getting either gun as they both provided me with countless hours of shooting pleasure. All that said, I just got a P1 to relive the pellet gun days. A few years ago I made a bunch of slingshots modeled after the Wham-O Sportsman to relive those days... gave them to many friends too! Doing my best to stay young and have fun...The Beeman P1 uses 1911 grips, so is a great match for that. As a springer, the piston jumps before the pressure launches the pellet, so you need a firm grip for accuracy. Not insanely tight but not light either. It has helped me gain accuracy with my S&W model 41, and bonus, indoor shooting at home all winter.
