Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant is single action only, the bolt cycle does most of the work setting up the loading of a BB into the chamber and pre-cocking the bolt spring. The take up is minimal and the release is about medium to light weight. The bolt snaps forward firmly and with a nice clanking sound, you can even feel the weight of it as it moves forward.

Build Quality: The Gletcher M1944 is really well made, you can tell by it's robust weight and how solid the action feels when you draw the bolt back and release it the first time. Everything that would be metal on the real Mosin Nagant is metal on the Gletcher M1944 including the full size dropout magazine that holds both the BBs and CO2. Yes the stock is imitation wood, but it looks very close to real wood and will fool most people until very close inspection. The overall finish looks great.

Realism: I've never actually put my hands on a real steel Mosin Nagant Rifle but from the photos I viewed online, the Gletcher M1944 is really accurate in terms of being a BB replica. Of course the magazine has been adapted to fit CO2 and BB's but once placed in the gun it is nearly impossible to tell it from the real thing. The weight of this rifle (8.2 pounds) gives it the feeling of genuineness. I have read online that a real Mosin Nagant stock can be adapted to fit the Gletcher M1944 so that would indicate that it is fairly true in size and construction to a real Mosin Nagant Rifle.

Pros:

  • Very Unique BB gun
  • A piece of history you can shoot in your back yard
  • Mostly all metal gun
  • Nice heavy 8.2 pound weight to it
  • Adjustable rear sight, at least for elevation
  • Nice single action trigger
  • Bolt action feels great and has a firm release
  • Full size drop out metal magazine that holds both the BB's and the CO2
  • More fps than claimed and decent accuracy, I expect to get lots of shots out of a single CO2 because of the magazine design
  • Imitation wood is very believable
  • Comes with sling
  • Breaks down similarly to the real steel version, so maybe able to upgrade parts like the stock with a little bit of work

Cons:

  • Stock is plastic but looks good considering
  • No real way to adjust windage and the rear sight does wiggle a bit from side to side which could throw off the aim
  • Bayonet may scratch the stock a bit

Comments: The Gletcher M1944 is a great option for anyone looking for a historic bolt action rifle but in a BB version. It for sure looks and acts the part but in a much quieter and backyard friendly version. Sure you can get the Gletcher 1891 Sawn-Off Rifle for about half price but to really get the full Mosin Nagant experience you are going to want to have the larger full size model, no two ways around it. Being abel to shoulder the gun makes it way more natural and easier to shoot.

I have a few other related videos you may want to also checkout for the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle and it’s little brother the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off version.

In this Field test Shooting Video of the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle I test out its velocity in feet per second and also what kind of accuracy I can get shooting at a paper target 30 feet away from a rested seated position with a sand bag up front.

Starting with the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle’s power I first placed 5 shots through my Chronograph using a brand new 12 gram CO2 and RWS 5.1 grain zinc coated steel BB’s. The lowest fps shot was 334 and the highest was 363 fps, averaging 344 for the 5 shots. Not all that fast for a CO2 BB rifle but keep in mind the inner barrel is the same length as the shorter barreled Gletcher M1891 which actually shot a m much higher average fps of 428. I was shooting the Gletcher M1891 on a much warmer day which will effect velocity with CO2 airguns but by nearly 100fps? Seems a little bit off?
