Folks,I have my new P17 from Eric. His trigger mod is fantastic, the ball bearing is just part of the package. It has no perceptible first stage, it like a microswitch. Just think trigger, and it fires. I have not put it on the Chrony yet but, if sound is any indication, it has more velocity. I think this attributable to the front loading barrel and the way it is located against the breech seal. None of the air is being wasted. The accuracy is looking very good, I"ll know a whole lot more after a couple of tins of pellets. Eric, I really appreciate your efforts. You have tuned a good pistol into fine pistol. You have tailored it to match my needs.More to comeBobH.
Congrats to BobH! Good shooting, bud!! Taught those whippersnappers a thing or two, huh? Your prize will be shipped in the next run out.The next match will be in better weather, and allow mods.Breaking 17 news... Mr. Melick sent me a fine pile of blanks in .22 and .177, at prices that can only be described as great. There will be no increases in S2 prices (as long as these barrels last), and if anyone has been thinking about going for a select .22 barrel for their SE.... now is the time.
One question though - Where's the best place to buy? Anybody have any experience with BigSupplyShop? They seem to be the cheapest, especially since I want to get some different pellets and stuff. Just don't want to buy from the cheapest if I'm going to have problems. Would rather pay a bit more for better service.Thanks - can't wait to start modding.

Right here : http://flyingdragonairrifles.org/I saw that site, and was thinking about it since the guys modding the guns and the owner of the site frequent here, and provide lots of information, but I was wanting to get some different kinds of pellets to get also. And Stonykill - seeing a bunch of your posts in the Hunting Gate has definitely added spark to my wanting one of these guns. Even though I want it mostly for shooting indoors in basement, I would like something to carry in the boat with me.

I'm sure you've seen the I caught the "bug" and will likely wind up getting both a B17 and a 953 before it's all over.
