As I've told MANY individuals that have inquired of The Manic Compressive, "What pistol should I get for field target?", my opinion of the 1720T is "unless you're willing to spend over a thousand bucks, the 1720T is the ONLY choice! Matter of fact, a 1720T will shoot with any field target pistol at any price." I've sold at least a dozen 1720Ts for Crosman; no brag, just fact.
I regard the 1701P just as highly (though not for field target competition). Crosman needs to produce the 1701P in .22 caliber (with a larger transfer-port), as that would be an excellent small-game pistol. Matter of fact, Crosman should employ me as a consultant!
