Pistol will be on sale for $89.99 down from regular price of $139.99 in the Canadian Tire sale which starts June 13th. Don’t know about other Provinces, but Ontario, yes.

Still a bit highly priced for a re-branded P17.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Yup, been discussed many times if it’s any better than a P17. Only one person posted a review and it was found lacking out of the box. If you factor in the cost of shipping vs picking one up at your local CTC it almost balances out.

I picked one up at SFRC. Got mine for $49.99 (reg price) plus a save the tax promo. IIRC shipping was $10.
Mine's a decent basement plinker (~20ft) and pretty accurate with Stoegar x-sports. It's not going to win any Competitions (accuracy/beauty) but fills the bill when I want to just plink a few rounds.

Thank you johNTO!! I just picked one up at SFRC today for the regular price of $49.95. Fit and finish seem a little nicer than the P17 and the barrel/cocking mechanism seems a little longer, but maybe that’s just me. Can’t believe CTC sells these for $139.99

Roussfam....you're welcome!
IMO the XP4 is a nice addition to especially for the price.
If you're looking for another plinker (and you like revolvers), take a look at Umerax's Brodax at Replica ($45 + shipping). It's well made, comes with 3 "clips", shoots straight, has a great trigger (in single action) and looks pretty Kool for a BB gun :)
