  • Aaron from USA asked:

    What suppressors are compatible with this

    • Mark from USA:

      The Glock barrel is not threaded. There is no fake suppressor that can be mounted.

  • jordan from USA asked:

    Is it possible to take off the slide and if so how ?

    • Mark from USA:


  • Patrick from USA asked:

    Does the slide lock back after last round in the mag? Thanks.

    • James from USA:


  • Justin from USA asked:

    any issues with a slide bite on this glock?

    • MORRIS from USA:

      Any blowback gun, held improperly, can deliver slide bite. I have not seen slide bite since the late 1970s when a cousin wrapped his thumb around the top of his hand and bled mightily as a result. Keep your off hand thumb off the shooting hand and you will be just fine.

  • MORRIS from USA asked:

    Does the grip have the opening under the grip and behind the mag well that accepts a skeleton stock as the firearm does? If so, it should also have a small hole just above the bottom of the back of the grip for the spring loaded keeper stud in the stock.

    • Daymon from USA:

      Could not find an answer to this myself; however, it looks correct. I ordered 6 different mag well plugs from Amazon and will update this if any of them will fit.

  • Eliud from USA asked:

    why is there such a huge weight difference between this one and the other glock 17 kit?

    • John from USA asked:

      Is this CO2 .177 BB version compatible with the green gas magazines?

      • Jordan from USA:

        So long as the green gas mags are chambered in .177 (4.5mm) and not 6mm

    • jack from USA asked:

      im new to this so idk terms but does blow back mean the slide can cock back or no ?

      • Jordan from USA:


    • Lessuk, from USA asked:

      how many mags does it come with?

      • Mark from USA:


    • Buenaventura from USA asked:

      Can this be shipped in California?

      • Gary from USA asked:

        Does this fit in the Glock pistol conversion units like Roni or KPOS?

        • Mark from USA:

          We doubt it.

      • Dan from USA asked:

        Is it wrong of me to save the catalogs you guys send me when I purchase something? They are things of beauty and make excellent reading material for my reading room.

        • Anzoni from USA asked:

          I live in california and tried to order this through amazon and I was told that it is restricted from being shipped to california, does anyone know if that's true or why that is?

          • Mark from USA:

            The restriction is thru Amazon,only. We can ship to CA.

        • Joseph from USA asked:

          This licensed Glock has AUSTRIA stamped on the slide. Is it manufactured in Austria hopefully, and not China?

          • Mark from USA:

            No. It is made in Taiwan.

        • Michael from USA asked:

          I read this described as partial blow back instead of full blow back and I dont understand what that means.

          • Tyler from USA:

            That means the slide does not blowback as far as the real firearm would. This also means (in the case of this gun and most half blowback replicas) that the trigger has a much longer reset than the firearm, or a full blowback gun would have. That's because the trigger has to be let almost all the way out to cycle to the next round. The Gen4 version that will be available later this year is a full blow back model, will cost more, but will be much more realistic.

        • Brandon from USA asked:

          Does this fit a blackhawk serpa level 3 holster for a glock 17?

          • saulo from USA asked:

            Is this one Abel to be field stripped

            • saulo from USA asked:

              Is this one able to be field stripped

              • kirk from USA asked:

                Does this have the recess in the rear bottom of the grip to attach a Glock stock?

                • sam from Canada asked:

                  Does the 177. Air gun work with plastic bbs or just metal

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    This is a steel BB gun. They make airsoft versions if that is what you are looking for

                • James from USA asked:

                  Can this pistol be field stripped?

                  • Tyler from USA:


                • Paul from USA asked:

                  are xtra magazines available ? still waiting for an answer im not ordering till I get an response its an easy question yes or no

                • Huss from USA asked:

                  Is this product sold in a clam shell or a box?

                  • Judy from USA:


                  • John from USA:

                    Plastic Clam Shell...A box would have been nice but not happening!

                  • Michael from USA:

                    Sadly not in a nice box like a firearm or an SLR camera. Yes it arrives in the dreaded cam shell razor sharp plastic device. Although the gun is beautiful and well made just poorly packed. Sadly not in a nice box like a firearm or so camera. Yes it arrives in the dreaded can shell razor sharp plastic device. The gun is beautiful and we'll built just poorly packed.

                  • Bruce from USA:

                    I got mine on 1/16/19 and it was in a clam shell.

                • Gene from USA asked:

                  Wondering why the U.S. version is different from the European version. The EU version is more authentic with all the correct etchings ie.9x19 on the left slide. Also does not have that annoying push button trigger safety but rather a discriminant safety on the bottom of the front frame and comes in a nice box. I bought the G19 however probably won't buy another unless changes are made to the U.S. version.

                  • Paul from USA:

                    it would be nice to see a g18 select fire as the high end glock

                  • Gene from USA:

                    Thank you. I understand laws are different, however The MP40 has an underframe safety, and packaging should just be a product decision. EU requirements have I have understood are more restrictive than U.S., however in this case they get a far more authentic product. I look forward to the future offerings.

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    A few things: 1) the laws and requirements for airguns in the US are very different Europe. 2) From my understanding, Umarex intends to have 3 different versions of Glock offerings as an entry level, mid level and high end. This would fall in the mid level price range. I know this is already being done with airsoft, but the steel BB versions are coming out more slowly, so we will have to wait and see what they announce and show at SHOT show and IWA in the coming months.

                • Joe from USA asked:

                  Does this one take the same magazine as the non-blowback model that came out last year? Will it really fit holsters made for the firearm version. The other one mostly will not.

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    No, not the same mag. Yes, it really fits in the same holsters. The G19 non blowback dimensions are slightly off from a real G19. This G17 should be spot on with the real steel dimensions.

                • Justin from USA asked:

                  Is this new co2 Glock bb airgun full blowback?

                  • Tyler from USA:

                    More of a half blowback, but some blowback is better than no blowback

                • Bob from USA asked:

                  Does this one tear down like the Airsoft one
