    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:

    Most realistic BB gun I have ever held, identical replica to the Glock 17, minus the 9x19 etched in on the barrel. Great weight and feel.

    Things I would have changed:

    The CO2 does not last long at all and its very complicated to install without spilling a little out.

    What others should know:

    If your someone who enjoys racking the slide back and forth a lot be careful because the top of the barrel does wear rather quickly. The paint comes off rather easily, leaving the metal to be exposed.

    Things I liked:

    This pistol looks and feels like a real Glock in your hand. It is lighter and the materials seem slightly different, but it is an extremely faithful replica. The trigger feels lighter than those in my centerfire Glocks. I am using it as an alternative for dry firing, so I would prefer the trigger to be the same weight, but lighter is OK. Reliability is flawless. Accuracy is good, with the caveat noted below. It fits well in my Aker pancake holster.

    Things I would have changed:

    As noted in other reviews, the pistol shoots low. Mine is 2" low at 5 yards. I don't mind very much as I practice at close distances. I ordered an adjustable OEM rear sight but have yet to install it. The process of changing CO2 cartridge involves a number of steps, including using a tool to remove the magazine floor plate and the provided wrench to remove the nut that secures the cartridge. Rethreading the nut into the magazine is a challenge as there is not much to hold onto with your fingers and misaligning the threads appears easy to do. That said, one gets the hang of it quickly. Seating the magazine into the pistol requires a positive insertion. If the magazine catch does not engage, the heavy magazine will drop out and hit your garage floor bottom first before you can react, usually dinging a corner of the magazine. This has happened to me several times.

    What others should know:

    It has a nice pop when you shoot it. My wife says it sounds like a I am hammering a nail. It is not as loud as my Diana 27 break barrel. The blow back action is nice, but it does not have the recoil of a real Glock. I get 3 to 3.5 mags of BBs on one CO2 cartridge, which is perfect for my practice sessions. I am considering purchasing two more for practicing in battery and out-of-battery speed reloads. Given the weight of the magazines, I will definitely do that over a table with something on it to protect the dropped magazine.

    Things I liked:

    Fine attention to detail. Functional blowback that is consistent to the last shot, unlike my experience with other blowback replicas.

    Things I would have changed:

    Sights need some adjustment at manufacturing. Gun shoot consistently high from aim point. Fair at ten yards but anything further is just impossible. For now, it is a fine display piece.

    Things I liked:

    The look and quality of the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 is very realistic and seems to weigh about the same as a real Glock 17 without ammo.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have problems with the magazine function due to the small spring catch on the magazine. It is very hard to pull back the spring in order to put the BB's in the magazine. The CO2 cap on the magazine must align with the vertical part of the magazine, not the horizontal part of the magazine base, or it will not screw into the threads. It took me a while to figure this out. I am disappointed with the accuracy of the gun. It is hard to hit a paper plate at 25ft. The BB's just don't fly out of the barrel very consistently for some reason.

    What others should know:

    Buy a few extra mags because you will wish you had more shots without reloading.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    The feel, the look, the lack of obvious safety warnings, snappy blow back, and overall fit and finish.

    Things I would have changed:

    Get rid of the writing under the trigger guard and "officially licensed" script on the side. Yeah, it really does come in a blister pack. These are minor complaints though.

    What others should know:

    I purchased this and the Springfield XDM 4.5 at the same time. I feel the Glock Gen4 is the better of the two by far. The Springfield has a pretty box,And has less intrusive safety warnings, but the copy I got has too many functional issues, poor accuracy, and doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling like the Glock does. The Gen4 shoots better, has nicer fit and finish, and has a better trigger and smoother overall operation. Everything works just like it's supposed to. Excellent replica to practice with at home.

    The way it looks and the way it feels in my hands I love the athehetity of it over all i am very happy with my purchase

    Things I would have changed:

    Would like if it came with an extra mag and a glock case

    What others should know:

    Looks very very realistic don't be waving it around outside or you could go to jail or even be shot

    Things I liked:

    Solid construction. Realistic weight and feel. Loads easily. Just be careful of the follower spring as it has a plastic tab that could break off if it snaps back.

    Things I would have changed:

    Gun must be cocked for the safety to engage. Clamshell packaging? I purchased a real Glock 17 case online for $11 which adds to its fun.

    What others should know:

    You tuber channel true Canadian airguns has a great accuracy mod where you put a piece of electrical tape along the bottom of the inner barrel which then stabilizes it within the outer barrel increasing accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    Overall this is an excellent pistol. Great features like solid drop out mag with clip-in cover for bottom of mag to hide co2 screw. This feels and acts like the real deal. It racks very satisfyingly.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see a Glock 19 model. Comes in blister pack which is a shame. Quality like this should warrant a nice box.

    What others should know:

    Ive dropped the mag several times so be careful.

    Things I liked:

    It looks and feels extremely real, and it's exquisitely made. The weight is balanced well, which makes it enjoyable to hold in hands. The blowback motion feels real as well. Actually I do carry a real Glock 22, and using this 17 replica for practicing is fantastic. The accuracy of this model is just fine. Regarding its price, it's perfect.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing specifically.

    Things I liked:

    This gun is almost as real as it gets. I was never a fan of glock but now I see why so many police cary a glock.This gun feels very good in your hand and operates like the real think. This gun would be a great adition to your collection!

    Things I would have changed:

    Well hear we go again with the blister pack that no body likes. Let me make a sugestion. Take the gun out of the blister pack as fast as you safely can and through the blister pack away. The blister pack takes away from the quality of this gun. Now get a case, zipper pouch or holster that will show off the quality of this gun. Now you have a gun you will be proud to show to your frinds.

    What others should know:

    This is not a plastic gun. It has the same solid feel, look and weight as the Real thing.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate copy of original gun. Feels great in hand. Gun has great grouping at 20 feet considering it shoots BBs and the lower power level.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if the sights were somewhat accurate. It would not be difficult to add a slightly taller rear sight or adjustable sight.

    What others should know:

    The pistol shoots low. Good news is the rear sight can be changed. Glock rear sights are identified by markings on the right side consisting of one or more horizontal bars. A single bar indicates the most common rear sight height: 6.5mm (.256 in), which is what is on this pistol. A long bar with a short bar beneath it indicates a 6.1mm (.240 in) height and a long bar with a short bar above will measure 6.9mm (.271 in) high. The tallest of the factory Glock rear sights is the 7.3mm (.287 in) with markings consisting of a long bar with two shorter bars above the long bar. Any of these can be found for about $20. I found an adjustable one called Glock perfection sight.

    Beautiful gun. Feels great in your hand. I image this is what a real one feels like!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing except the accuracy.

    What others should know:

    This is my 4th air pistol, my second with blowback. I am not impressed so far with the accuracy. It shoots consistently low and to the left. I will have to compensate a lot to get it to where I need to be. I just ordered a laser for this and hopefully this can dial in the accuracy without looking through the non-adjustable sights.

    Things I liked:

    Received 29 Nov. WOW! This is as close to the powder burner it represents as one can get. In the hand is feels exactly the same. The trigger is as good as the actual firearm. The magazine loads easy. The slide locks back on the last BB. The ammo used was Hornady black diamond BB's and Daisy Avanti precision ground BB's. Found no difference in performance. Five shot group at 15 feet was 2 inches or less and shoots a little left, acceptable in my opinion. If I had to keep only one of the MANY replica handguns I have and I like several of them, this would be the one. I'm at 1400+ rounds and zero problems.

    Things I would have changed:

    Boost the FPS to around 450.

    What others should know:

    I purchased two extra mags (a bit more expensive than they should be) to extend practice time. I loaded the mag 3 times before the power falls a bit. You can get around 60 - 65 good shots from a CO2 cartridge. Experimented with the magazines and all of them held air for 5 days and still functioned properly. No leaks. Very happy about that as this doesn't happen all the time.

    Things I liked:

    Wow!!This pistol is very solid and well made from some decent metal for a change. The look, feel, weight of this gun are all excellent . As others have noted it's a bit off in accuracary shooting low. But if I can remove the sites I can fix this. There is a hop up nickle plated screw under the slide when the gun is striped down. I tried turning it all the way to the up position but I really haven't done any real testing as of yet as far as accuracary. All I know is the gun has an an amazing blowback, smooth trigger pull (the best of any gun I own) and seems to be hitting nice and hard. I really look forwad to doing some serious accuracary testing. Alot of fun to shoot...

    Things I would have changed:

    Well, I wish it wasen't such a CO2 hog. But hey....I'll take this level of quality for three mags of usage per bulb any day.

    What others should know:

    You CANNOT engage the safty lever unless the GUN IS COCKED. So don't force it. A great purchase and top line quality materials. I only wish all replica air guns were made with this in mind. Compared to the air soft version..it is much heavier and mde from better metal.

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Has the weight and feel like 9mm glock with the white outline bucket sights as my glocks have, good for inexpensive indoor practice to hone grip and quick sight picture for rapid fire. Even though it does not kick like a 9mm the recoil will get you to practice a good stance to recover from each shot and get on target quickly. Also has trigger reset as with 9mm glock to practice trigger reset and squeeze.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like a Gen5 version as I own and I also had Gen 2 with no finger grooves Better accuracy but for the intended purpose of practice it is good enough

    What others should know:

    Care when threading in the CO2 cartridge.so as not to cross thread As with real ammo, I found a difference in point of impact and grouping with different bb's however they all worked for my intended purpose

    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:

    Very realistic from the look to the weight. Pretty accurate and love that blow back . In my opinion this is a very good company to order from as opposed to Amazon which sells a lot of damaged products.

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine is a little funny. I had to let my thumb nail grow a little longer so I can load the BBS. After you load a new CO2 cartridge the nut it's hard to put screw back in at times which makes it a longer loading process.

    What others should know:

    Other than that I would say it's a very solid gun with realistic blow back. I would get at least two extra mags and preload them all to cut down on loading time.

    5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Looks and feels real and neat. No extraneous white text on the slide. The slide looks like machined, so much better quality than cast pot metal guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    It shoots low (with very good grouping) as others observed. Rear sight seems removable so I might do something about it.

    What others should know:

    The only visible difference between this air gun and the real firearm, at least for my naked eyes, is that the extractor on the air bb is molded in the slide. Wish it were a separate faux extractor like that on the Umarex HK USP. Seems to come with hop-up, but shoots the same no matter how I adjust it.
