Type: BB Pistol Manufacturer: Gletcher Model: M712 Materials: full metal construction Weight: 3 pounds Barrel: 5 inches Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 cartridge Action: single-action, blowback, full auto Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds FPS: 361 fps
Comments: The Gletcher M712 implements the main highlights of the authentic 1932 model, including full auto mode, which is rather rare in air guns. The M712 also preserves the historic characteristics of the original thanks to a breech mechanism that moves when firing and a Blowback system.
My M712 came for the weekend..Yay! It was marked as KMC which wasa plus..no white silk screening.My outer barrel was loose so I removed the set screw (E09) and outer barrel,applied Silicon grease to the nylon bushing at the front of the barrel tostabilize it, installed outer barrel and used removal tread-lock on the factoryset screw and installed a second set screw using 262 blue tread-lock.(this was optional but I had one so why not). Barrel is stone tight and will notmove.So this is what you get.Accuracy, nail driving at 20 feet in semi mode, 3 to 4 inch bulls eyeswith all 18 shots in full auto.My C-rony read 358 feet per second usingTactical Crusader, Crosman and Daisy C02 bulbs.54-60 shots per C02.I put 25 C02 bulbs through it which equaled 1500 shotsand 3 mags with full auto.( Not one jam).Loading is fast and easy if you load in front of the BB followerinstead of the top of the mag.( pull follower all the way down holdwith finger nail and load in front of it).Would I recommend this gun? Yes, Trust me once you look afterthe barrel screw you will not be able to put this gun down.

This is the Table Top Review for the KWC Mauser CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. I show you around this KWC Mauser replica pistol and go over its main features and specifications. I also do a quick pre-test Field Test and talk about some of the pros & cons.
Overall the KWC Mauser CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is that all metal version we kind of hoped Umarex had made, and from what I can tell in the KWC product brochure, this one should be available in both 4.5mm Steel BB and 6mm Plastic Airsoft so this should make everyone pretty happy :) Other than the rather high shot placement I really liked the KWC Mauser especially the super high fps and ultra fast rate of fire in full auto mode. Another must have classic war pistol to add to the collection!

In this official Field Test Shooting Video, I do my standard Chronograph test where I shoot a series of .25 gram 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's using a brand new CO2 cartridge to see what kind of real word Feet Per Second performance I can get out of the KWC Mauser CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. On this medium temperature day I averaged a very quick 415 fps which may be a bit hot for most Airsoft matches. The temperature was fairly cool at 14 Celsius or 57 Fahrenheit so the fps will only get faster on a warmer day.
During my Accuracy Shooting Test, I set myself up 30 feet away using a semi-rested stance (Sand bag up front, standing in the back). I did have to adjust my rear sight to the lowest position and even then I found that I needed to aim at the lowest ring on the target to get my shots close to the center and even then they placed a bit high. Even though the KWC Mauser Airsoft Pistol shot high the results where very good, resulting in a 10 shot grouping in the 1.5 to 2 inch range!
Overall I really enjoyed shooting the KWC Mauser CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol, the trigger is super nice and short with a light single action release. The blowback action is very quick and snappy which really makes the full auto rate of fire very high. You will go through a 21 round magazine in a hurry! It is a sample or prototype pistol and I would imagine that KWC could work on getting the FPS juts a bit lower so it would be more usable in an Airsoft Game, and while they're at it they should bring the shot placement down just a bit. Other than that it's a really great Airsoft War pistol replica worthy of addition to anyone collection.
