Type: BB Rifle
Manufacturer: Gletcher
Model: Mosin Nagant M1891 Sawed-Off
Materials: Metal and Polymer (Imitation Wood)
Weight: 2.6 kg (5.7 lb)
Barrel: 5.5 Inches, Smooth Bore
Power Source: CO2
Action: Bolt
Ammo Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 16 Rounds
FPS: 394

Trigger Mechanism: The Gletcher M1891 operates on a single-action trigger mechanism, where cycling the bolt prepares a BB for firing and cocks the bolt spring. The process involves minimal take-up and a release force that ranges from medium to light. Engaging the bolt produces a distinctive, satisfying sound and a palpable movement forward.

Shooting Performance: In a preliminary shooting assessment, I recorded an average velocity exceeding the advertised 394 FPS, reaching approximately 430 FPS. Engaging targets from 30 feet away in a semi-supported stance, I achieved a 1.75-inch grouping from 17 shots, an impressive feat given the unconventional handling required by the M1891's design. Adapting to its grip, akin to a rifle's yet without shoulder support, may require some practice.

Construction and Durability: The construction of the Gletcher M1891 reflects high quality, evident in its substantial weight and the solidity of its bolt action. True to the original Mosin Nagant, the replica's metallic components are faithfully reproduced, including a comprehensive drop-out magazine for BBs and CO2. Despite the synthetic wood stock, which arguably offers enhanced durability over natural wood, the replica's overall finish and detailing, particularly the silver bolt, are commendable. However, the external coating, susceptible to wear, might need occasional touch-ups.

Authenticity: While I haven't personally handled a genuine Mosin Nagant Rifle, comparisons with online images suggest the Gletcher M1891's faithful reproduction, notwithstanding necessary modifications for CO2 and BB compatibility. Its weight adds to its authentic feel, though the synthetic stock is the primary indicator of its replica status. Interestingly, it’s been noted that an actual Mosin Nagant stock could be modified to fit the Gletcher M1891, hinting at its dimensional accuracy.

Pros:

  • Exceptionally distinctive BB gun, merging historical significance with functional recreation.
  • A predominantly metallic build enhances realism and heft.
  • Features an adjustable rear sight for elevation and a smoothly operating single-action trigger.
  • The bolt action mechanism enriches the shooting experience with its robust engagement.
  • Includes a fully metallic, comprehensive magazine for BBs and CO2.
  • Surpasses expected velocity with commendable accuracy, anticipated to offer efficient CO2 usage due to the magazine's design.

Cons:

  • The synthetic stock, although aesthetically pleasing, is not genuine wood.
  • Limited adjustability for windage, compounded by the rear sight's lateral movement.
  • The finish may wear over time, especially on frequently contacted surfaces.

Comments:

The Gletcher M1891 stands out as an extraordinary BB gun, captivating for its historical essence and dual nature as both a pistol and a rifle. Its performance is as remarkable as its appearance, delivering higher-than-anticipated velocities and surprising accuracy. The tactile satisfaction derived from manually operating its bolt action adds depth to each shot. For those drawn to unique, eye-catching pieces that command a second glance, the Gletcher M1891 is an unparalleled choice.

Great gun

Overall I really like this gun. It took a bit to get used to the length, weight and the mostly non adjustable sights but it is just plain fun to shoot and the quality is really good; feels solid. I had some extended family like it so much they had me order 2 more. I can't wait for all 3 of us to get out shooting them at the same time.

Very Nice

This is a unique piece and should be in everyone's collection, just for the cool factor alone. The fact that it shoots and functions is a bonus.We've all seen the UZI's, broom handles, etc, but when's the last time a sawed off rifle came down the pike?I can live with the plastic stock. It looks real and keeps the weight & cost down.I own a full size version in 7.62x54 and the action on the BB version is as smooth as the real one.In case anyone is curious about the 90 degree bolt handle, it was so the action could be manipulated with mittens on. Remember where the real one was used :)

I decided to do my Field test of the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off Mosin Nagant Rifle a little different than my standard filed tests. I pretty much already did a similar Field Test for the M1891 during Table Top Review and if I used the same methods for testing I would most definitely have gotten the same results. Which by the way where a 1.75 inch group from a full 17 round magazine shooting from 30 feet back, and an average of 430 feet per second.

Type: BB Rifle. Manufacturer: Gletcher. Model: Gletcher M1891 (Replica of Sawn Off Mosin Nagant "Obrez"). Materials: Metal & plastic. Weight: 5.7 pounds (2.6kg). Barrel: 5.5 inches, smooth bore (inner barrel). Propulsion: CO2. Action: Bolt - single shot - single action. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 16 rounds. (I was able to fit 17 rounds in the magazine) FPS: 394fps (120m/s). The Gletcher M1891 is one of the most interesting BB guns I have had the opportunity to review, it has history, it's kind of a pistol and kind of a rifle at the same time and in this sawn off configuration it looks both old school and modern. I could almost see it being used as the perfect zombi gun ;) Getting away from it's unique looks, the Gletcher M1891 performs very well, shooting a respectable 430 fps with accuracy that surprised me since I found it a bit hard to hold at first. There is something very gratifying about having to work a bot or lever or the hammer on a single action revolver that makes each shot just that much more precious! If you're looking for that ultimate eye catcher that people will have to take a second look at than this is the one for you.
