Gletcher M1944 Russian Legend rifle
Read more about the Mosin Nagant M1944 in Dennis Adler's Airgun Experience Blob.
The legendary Mosin-Nagant Russian rifle was produced between the 1890s and 1950s. During World War II, a new pattern of carbine called M1944 was adopted as a Soviet Army rifle. The M1944 is the latest modification to the popular rifle of WWII.
This is the heaviest Gletcher model at 8.21 pounds and the heft gives you instant appreciation for the solid feel of this gun.
This gun replicates the original sliding bolt action. Shoot, pull back the bolt, shoot again, and once again pull back the bolt. The ammunition in the gun barrel for subsequent shots is actually fed into the firing chamber by opening the rifle's bolt.
The Gletcher M1944 is equipped with a metal barrel, slide, bolt mechanism and magazine. It is also has an integral folding bayonet attached to the barrel with a cruciform blade. Included in the package is a built-in magazine, and a reproduction M1944 strap.
Anyone that's had to carry a tool in order to screw in a C02 cartridge while using a pneumatic weapon will appreciate the welcome functionality of the M1944's built-in hex wrench. The gun also has a compartment for storing the accompanying retention screw tool in its magazine.
Steel BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.

Things I liked: Awesome looking replica.
Things I would have changed: Make the rear sight sturdier.
What others should know: Put some sort of pad on the stock where the end of the cool bayonet folds back or it will start to scratch up the plastic. Also am aware that this will fit into a real stock fairly easily which would be even more awesome.
Things I liked: The rifle is a nice replica in a full stock. It has a correct sling and working bayonet. Gletcher went to great efforts in these details. Reviews report its weight is similar to the real rifle and it shoots accurately. I did not buy this rifle because a specific attribute is missing- the Russian markings. Too me it's just a BB toy, not a desired collector's special that most Mosin collectors would purchase in a heart beat. Gletcher missed the boat here.
Things I would have changed: Most important to a collector, not a BB shooter, is the actual reproduction of the Russian receiver markings and bolt serial numbers. The receiver and bolt are sterile. The receiver lacks the Tula star and date, say 1944. This added realism and a Russiam prefix serial number under the markings like on a real 1944 Tula carbine would have made it a more desirable Collector's Replica. In addition, the bolt lacks the stamped serial number on the cocking piece and the edge of the bolt. If these Russian markings were reproduced on the replica, its realism would be fantastic, off the charts realism, and it would be a true replica. Russian markings could have been cast in the mold or added with white paint (less desirable than molded markings). Such attention to these details: molded, reproduced Russian markings on the receiver and bolt, and maybe the stock would have made this a must buy rifle by most collectors of real Mosins or replica collectors.
What others should know: Another odd attribute is that the cleaning rod is not functional. The company goes to such efforts to produce a fantastic replica with a correct working bayonet and a correct sling, yet does not bother to produce a functional cleaning rod that pulls out. Kind of dumb. Reviewers indicate the molded plastic stock is OK. But the serial number, nor stock cartouches are replicated on the stock. It would be nice if the company indicated if an actual M44 wood stock can be re inletted and refitted onto the replica. I have not seen any reviews that indicate if this is possible with the Gletcher replica. Consequently it's a great BB gun, but not a must buy accurate replica. With some correct markings this would have been a TRUE replica to stack next to my real Mosins. $300 would have been a deal. I wonder how many avoided buying one due to this lack of detail. No sale here. Maybe a redesigned, single shot, pellet version will add/replicate some Russian markings and sell like crazy.
Things I liked: I like the authenticity of the rifle. Down to the sling. The rifle functions flawlessly.
Things I would have changed: The sights are off a bit to the left. If one holds the front blade so it just touches the right side of the rear notch the rifle is dead on. It seems to shoot the advertised 427 FPS. It hits real hard! I use the Excite Copper coated BBS.
What others should know: The slightly off set sights is the reason I give it a four star rating.

Can the H&N Smart Shot be used in the rifle?
Any idea why in a rifle, the velocity is lower than a handgun ? Seems it should be at least 450- 500.fps
