I'll add to that: It is most definitely a SHOOTER by anyone's definition! However, I now have two of them (Yeah, they are that much fun!) and the barrels get dirty faster than my other .22.lr handguns (S&W .22 compact, Browning 1911-22 and Ruger Mark IV Lite) but for me this is not a serous problem because I rarely shoot more than 100 rounds per gun in one session since I shoot more than one gun per session.
Just bring that baby home and clean her right away, and plan to use more patches or gun 'Q-tips' than you might on another gun.
And as far as malfunctions, you will probably find one or three brands of ammo that your particular gun prefers and one or more that have way too many light primer strikes with no "bangs." That is pretty much normal.
Re some debris coming out of the wide ejection port: ; I wear shooting gloves and would not notice that if it had not been pointed out in the video. BUT my expensive Browning 1911-22 flings hot stuff out also. I soot left handed and I found that out when shooting it from the hip - and wound up with little red dings all over my throat. I wear serious neck protection now!
It is unusual to find one in a store for that MSR price, and especially the colored ones, but even at $20 to $40 (ouch) higher, it is still a good buy. Mine came with three 16 round mags, not the 4 shown in that demo video. The black one I bought recently on line was $219 but with free shipping, and where I live there were still NO black ones available.
BUT - and here is a big $$ factor: The magazines only cost $15 each if you can find any at all. Compare that to the over $30 for mags for more expensive brands of guns. (In my case, buying the second P17 gave me the 6 magazines that are my minimum for one range trip. LOL)
OH and plan to buy a magazine loader. It is a rare and exceptionally strong man who can fully load those magazines without a loader. The springs are super stiff! I bought the two tone UpLula for wide body .22's and the owner of our local indoor range modified it for me to work with the P17. For way less money I also bought (on line) the push down Taylor Tactical one which is designed specifically for this gun. Now I have two, so someone can help me load my 6 magazines quickly!
Buy - Enjoy!
