Things I liked:

Fully licensed Glock. Nice feel in Palm. No orange tip due to being. .177 cal. ( 4.5 mm. )

Things I would have changed:

Needs 9mm. On slide. Like Other 6mm. Or .177 cal (4.5 mm.) Over sea's Glock's. Sell in a real Glock pistol hard case. Like the real firearm ! This will be a great update. At customer cost ! Get a full discount of a purchases of 3 or more magazine's.

What others should know:

Get one soon because it looks to real. Soon maybe banded by the ATF ! And other law Enforcement. This is a true Collectable. Will purchase more soon.

Things I liked:

This air gun looks and feels great . The trigger pull is nice and light ,

Things I would have changed:

Only about 3 out of 10 bbs correctly fired . Some of the failures just rolled down the barrel . Fixed sight , and at 3 yards it hits 8 Inches low and 3 inches left .

What others should know:

The gun is a very accurately made replica. Actual Glock accessories ( like lights , lasers , holsters etc ) fit on it for training. However its poor accuracy and poor reliability make it a poor choice for shooting.

    Things I liked:

    Feels GREAT in the hand. Looks quite authentic. You can tell cate went into the engineering of this gun.

    What others should know:

    This is the LEAST ACCURATE airgun I own - and thats Saying something. Even for an airgun this thing is ridiculous. At twenty feet I was lucky to get a three inch shot group! As an example my Umarex Brodax which is half the price is unbelievably more accurate. The M&P 9 which is also less expensive is nearly a tack driver. This thing though, way too much money for way too little performance.

    Things I liked:

    Not much not to like - great blowback, field strippable, replica accurate, solid. But....

    Things I would have changed:

    Perhaps durability is an issue. Yes, I've probably fired many thousands of rounds with this pistol, but just yesterday, it racked back and stuck. Dislodging things resulted in a small part falling out of the grip - the firing pin mechanism broke at what looks like a reliable point, but it is that white metal sort of stuff and, yeah, that was its death. I'll admit to not be able to resist getting another one....

    What others should know:

    Limited life for the quality of the working parts? There does seem to be a real problem with blowback pistols and the longevity of the firing mechanisms.

    Things I would have changed:

    Umarex should look into the accuracy of this piece. Shoots very low. Can't understand why. I will not return it but I'll just display this in one of my display cabinets. Looks real for anyone who visits me.

    What others should know:

    This airgun shoots very low. Read other reviews before you buy.

    Things I liked:

    As always, Umarex doesn't disappoint with realism. The package even included the three different textured grip backstraps! It strips like the real steel, nudge the slide back a little and pull down on the two little switch-like things on either side to pull the slide forward. Gen 4 differences are faithfully reproduced, like the longer trigger pull and the slightly differently shaped slide lock.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't really buy Umarex BB guns for any performance or accuracy or anything. They're fun! Fun to play with, great to do firearm drills and practices at the comfort of your home, fun to rack the slide, all that. But. Their performance as an airgun sucks. It's not accurate, won't hit a target at 25 yards unless you're really lucky, very inconsistent overall, and that's including the velocity.

    What others should know:

    Buy if you want a fun toy that can double as a trainer for a firearm. Don't expect it for target shooting that is any good.

    I am so pleasantly surprised with the slide catch, the feel of this replica, it is a suitable training tool for safety and cost in this day and age of shortages.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't have fingernails to get the bb follower to pull down easily, 2 extra mm on the follower would help me personally.

    Things I would have changed:

    This model constantly shoots low. I did not know that before my purchase. My copy shoots average 5.4" low at 5 yards, average 8" low at 7 yards. Check other people's review, many of them have the same problem. It shoots TOO low, not easy to fix. Most blowback BB guns are $100, this gun is $140, I expect higher than average quality.

    Things I liked:

    Very Glock firearm like, can not be faulted for its replica qualities but as a shooter it is very poor. The following is what I had to do to make it accurate enough to use as any kind if a training or marksmanship tool. In the end it now shoots ok but it was not really worth the effort, and I should never have had to do all this. Not good UMAREX!

    Things I would have changed:

    It seems like most of the design focus was aimed at making this air guns controls and handling same as the real thing at the expense of actual shooting performance. I believe the design of this air gun allows barrel instability and depending on how your particular gun comes out of the factory this can either be a minor problem or a huge one. My gun shot 12 to 14 inches low at 20 feet. I tried shooting from a table rest with Umarex pellets and Co2 on a mild day temperature wise and same thing. I own and have been shooting handguns for years, the problem is the gun not me. At first I was going to send it in for a refund, however I decided to try and fix it.

    What others should know:

    1. Ordered the highest standard Glock OEM rear sight offered from a Glock gun and parts web site I found. They offered a plastic site for only $6 plus shipping so I took a chance I could mount it. Turns out the Umarex gun has a firearm like dovetail cut in the slide for the rear site!!! The Umarex site is held firm by a screw that threads into a hole in the site, On firearms, the site is a close tolerance press fit with no treaded hole however the OEM site fit in the dovetail. I was able to snug up the screw thus pushing the OEM site up against the dovetail bottom securing it pretty well. (kinda cool that worked!). Now my gun was only shooting 5 inched low, still a bummer! Fix number 2. There is a plastic bushing on the end of the barrel probably to help position it and make it more stable. I put a two narrow strips of duct tape under this bushing hooping to raise it up a bit. This worked, the gun now shoots about as accurately as what you can expect from a blowback bb gun.

    Things I liked:

    Visually, the gun looks and functions like a real G17. I couldn't be happier with the craftsmanship. However, it hits the target about 5 inches low from 10 feet away on a full co2 cartridge. I watch several reviews and the guns where a lot more accurate than that. I purchased this to be able to practice at a little lower cost. But, if it isn't no more accurate than this, it's not much good. I contacted Umarex twice with no response. I guess it will make a great paperweight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs to be more accurate. Better customer service.

    The Umarex G17.4 as a trainer for my striker-fire unit. Showed it to my firearms instructor friend and he liked it for that reason.

    Things I would have changed:

    The loading malfunctions and low-shooting without adjustments. I've had Three already, and they ALL shoot about 2-3" low at 7 yards.

    What others should know:

    Yes. PyramydAir is very difficult to work with. Office personnel will say one thing and do another. Shipping is a hassle. Current order was to have arrived and I cannot find my orders to determine status. Used the link to my orders form email and it does not recognize my order number. Why does this not simply link to my orders???!!! When I called to leave a message, the phone just hangs up on you without allowing you to leave a message. I try to forgive, but every time I try again with Pyramyd, I'm reminded just how difficult it is/they are.
