Get closer to the real thing than ever before! Umarex's latest Glock BB Pistol is an exact replica of the G17 9mm. Featuring official GLOCK licensing, the metal slide and polymer body are engraved with all the authentic markings of the real steel gun. The Gen 3 model features an ergonomic grip with finger grooves and textured segments. Like all GLOCK pistols, it's equipped with a trigger saftey and tactical rail to attach a flashlight or last sight. With its hefty weight and crisp blowback action the Umarex Glock 17 provides a hyper realistic shooting experience.

I got overly excited seeing "Glock Co2 Blowback" thinking it's finally here! That's not to say I'm unhappy with this offering from Umarex, just a tad disappointed. As far as looks go, Umarex nailed it. The finish is nice, the trades make it look pretty authentic but I can't help compare it to my airsoft version and that's where the disappointment comes in. The airsoft version is a true replica. It has a full size mag with official Glock markings, it can be field stripped and being the Gen 4 even has the double recoil spring like the real steel version. We got the Non-Blowback G19, and now the new Blowback G17 it just seems that Umarex is all over the place with their Glocks instead of releasing a solid line of top notch replicas. Obtaining the licensing was huge. Maybe each region having different laws makes it more difficult but if they took all the positive features of the Glocks they've made so far, they could make a kick ass replica. I don't regret my purchase by any means. I'm just really picky when it comes to realism. A field strip option would have been an easy five stars.
