How do you guys like your PP700 pistols?
Anyone using the folding stock, how solid is it?
What are the differences between the PP700W and PP700SA?
Any regulators available for these?
Any idea if there's a repeater in the works?

I can't help it, I love pistols turned into carbines. I made one out of my 1701P and I can't get a Marauder pistol so the PP700 seems like the normal thing to do.

Don't have the pp700, but got the .177 PP700SA, very nice gun for the price, accuracy is nice too, almost everything is nice, only the stock needs to be secured more, and the rear sight needs to have more adjustability, one thing I like is the setup of the single shot and the revolver style hammer is perfect because it eliminates the hammer bounce, the adjustability of the power is very straight forward and with a build in regulator for sub 500, it has a lot of shot for you to enjoy, I tried counting it but always got lost on the count. I wish that Wes can get some longer barrel for this to make it a rifle even just a 14 or 18 inch would make this gun shine more.

I have the PP700SA. i like the sliding breech and external hammer. I wish the open sights were better - the rear is only adjustable for windage and the notch is little too narrow for me. The folding stock has a little wiggle to it when extended. I used a little shim in mine to tighten it up a bit. The stock is high for the sights but about right for a scope or red-dot.
Some have been dissatisfied with the regulator and replaced it. The Huma regulator seems like a popular choice. Mine has been accurate enough for me but i don't usually shoot much beyond 10m.

For a repeater you might want to consider the PP800 PCP pistol. If i am not mistaken it fits in a Diana Chaser stock which would give you the ability to convert it to a carbine. There are dealers on the forum that offer that option

The PP750 coming out this fall is another option in the e future as well. It is a similar gun to the PP700SA but has a built in carbine stock that slides out. It is a repeater and has a built in regulator.

That's a very nice pistol Wes, flush side lever too, I like the minimalist profile, any price point yet? and plans of ordering a longer barrel for the pp700sa?

I've asked about longer barrels and they don't have. But I've wondered if the threads on the end of the Chaser would fit and I haven't checked I should do that.

Now you're talking! I want that thing! If it's sub 300$ like the other PP's, it's a no brainer.

I might still get the 700... what are the differences between the W and the SA?

The "w" isnt allowed in Canada because of the baffled shroud. It has a round barrel shroud and a little bit smaller air tube and a green rubber grip. That's about it for difference.

We sure will be, Raman and I both. We'll have to get it approved for Canada but that's the plan!

No carbine, but mine shoots well with a red dot Tasco at 50' or 20 yards, whatever it was.
Shoots well at 10 meters, too.

I was seeing reviews of both guns but didn't see the shroud mentionned so other than the green grip I didn't notice any major difference but it would make a lot of sense.

Do they need some tuning? I'm not very patient (that's why I like regulators) with that kind of stuff.
I think I should get both. I could buy myself the PP700 right now and get the PP750 for Christmas and my birthday!
I'm also waiting on the Glock Gen4, SIG P365 and the new Crosman Bushmaster AR... and I'm also looking for a new vehicule and renovations around the house! Crazy busy :rolleyes:
