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:

I had my guns for 4 months before it broke and by that time it was out of warranty and when I sent them the gun they wouldnt do anything about it.

Things I would have changed:

UMAREX .... they did nothing to help with my broken gun and now it just sits in a box.

What others should know:

If you gun breaks after the warranty is up they do absolutely nothing.

    Things I liked:

    Definitely worth the money I paid I’ve had 2 before and the gen4 is definitely the way to go

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I believe they nailed it with this one

    What others should know:

    It was a little stiff field striping it at first but eventually she softened up and im happy about that because I believe in cleaning and oiling my firearms

    Things I liked:

    Has the feel of a legit Glock. Very realistic with the blowback. And I really like how easy it is to tear down for cleaning.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing that I have any real concerns for. However I have had issues with Copperhead BB’s so I stick to the Umarex Hornady BB’s as they don’t jam in the barrel.

    What others should know:

    I would stick to the Umarex Hornady BB’s and stay away from the Copperheads. I have read that lead BB’s work great too but I haven’t been able to find any lead ones where I live.

    Things I liked:

    The weight, the feel of the grip texturing, the fact that it can be field stripped. This looks like the real Glock, and I enjoyed shooting it.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I would change is the awful plastic packing that Umarex uses.

    What others should know:

    Suggest you get a second Magazine when you order the pistol.

    Things I liked:

    Allows me to target practice in my yard with a gun exactly like my real one. Cheaper ammo and no range fee. Lots of fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't change a thing Umarex got this one perfect.

    What others should know:

    An extra mag is always a good idea.

    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.

    I like the feel of it. Almost identical to my regular 17. Fun to shoot, and way cheaper than using up my regular ammo.

    Things I liked:

    The look, feel, and the weight of the real firearm.

    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:

    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:

    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 liked:

    Excellent build, felt very good in hand.

    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.
