Reviews

This is so true to the real weapon, made under licence from Glock.

Features good weight (mostly in the magazine which holds the gas), slide operates well (it's a blowback system) and locks back after last shot fired.

Fully field strippable as the real weapon if you have the right expertise to put it back together again!

The barrel is very light alloy, but this does not detract from the operation.

Overall - great BB gun for plinking in the back garden, very accurate and a joy to use in keeping with the original.
Obviously being in the UK I have never held a real Glock 17 but from the videos I've watched and all the information I've read this is as close as you can get to the real deal. It's actually a little heavier than a real Glock 17 Gen 4. The real version comes in at 625g and this replica comes in at 771g. All metal parts on the top with a polymer bottom. It feels very real in the hand. Rack the slide back and it has a very satisfying sound.

Everything works as it would on the real Glock. The slide pulled back will lock in position (if the magazine is empty, Not when the magazine is out of the gun), and reveal an open chamber. The trigger has a built in safety just like the actual Glock but beware. If the magazine is loaded and has C02, it will fire. There is a separate safety "Slide" on the bottom beneath the barrel that can be locked into safe but it's quite difficult to do. Because of the safety device on the trigger it feels a little weird at first but you'll soon get used to it.

The mag release is easy. It is not spring loaded but as the mag is quite heavy, so it will drop out by gravity quite easily. It's a similar mag to the Colt 1911 BB version. Heavy, all metal. The C02 fits inside and I had two issues with it. Firstly it has a plastic base cover. To get this off you have to depress a little button on the bottom. It's very difficult to do. Secondly, the screw in cap to hold the C02 capsule in place is hard to line up properly. It's perpendicular to the base of the mag but the outside of the mag is angled so it's hard to get it right. With a bit of practice, it gets easier. Loading it is really easy. Pull back the spring, which has a lock open position, pour the BB's into the round hole in the mag (i use the BIC pen method) and voila. Don't just let the spring go though, release it gently or you will end up with BB's all over the floor!

Probably one of the most satisfying things about this Glock is it is fully field strip-able identical to the real thing. If it didn't have the BB barrel sitting inside the actual barrel (which you can also strip out) it would be exactly the same as the real Glock 17. Obviously, the outer barrel is quite a light metal alloy (I assume the real deal would have a cast heavier barrel) but as a training tool for a Glock, I imagine this is pretty much perfect. Taking it apart and putting it back together is a lot of fun (either that or I need to get out more).

The grip and trigger guard are all moulded from the same polymer, one piece, although you can change the back strap and in fact you get a couple of spares in the box. It's quite a meaty feel. I have quite big hands and it felt very comfortable. If you had smaller hands, it may feel a bit chunky. The Grip and back strap are stippled and easy to hold. A nice feature is the front of the trigger guard has a curve and is also textured. I imagine the actual Glock 17 has a bit of a kick (being a mid range model from the Glock series) and this would help you to hang on to it, dampening recoil.

Firing this gun is a dream! It's accurate. Great sights which don't seem adjustable but are pretty accurate anyway. It's quite a loud gun when firing (I've heard as much as 95db), and the haptic feedback you get from the blowback is quite cool. No actual kick but you can feel it nicely. Obviously all the usual problems with ricochet in small places with steel BB's. I did try copper coated lead BB's on an iron plate but they still don't deform like a pellet would so be careful. I had a BB come back pretty hard and still had enough force to bruise my upper arm where it hit. Ouch.

My favourite guns in my collection are my Colt 1911 and my Walther CP88. If you like any of these, you'll love this too but even if you don't it's a bit of an education owning and firing one. I would highly recommend buying one of these.
