Gletcher Steel Blowback TT .177 Caliber CO2 Pistol

Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer: Gletcher
Model: TT (Replica of Tokarev)
Materials: Metal & plastic
Weight: 1.37 pounds (620 grams)
Barrel: 4.5 inches, smooth bore
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2
Action: Blowback - single action only
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds
FPS: 361fps (110m/s)

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher TT CO2 BB Tokarev is single action only, the blowback action cocks the hammer after each shot but you will need to either draw the hammer back or rack the slide on the first shot. I did find the SAO trigger to be rather heavy for a single action type trigger? Perhaps it will loosen up a bit over time? The take-up is kind of long since there is no real reset that takes place after the hammer is drawn back. The release point is sudden but does take some effort to release the trigger. I am not sure how this going to effect the accuracy?

Accuracy: I have only done some very preliminary shooting so far with this Gletcher TT due to some pretty awful weather conditions. Mainly just some freehand shooting to see how the blowback action felt. The blowback is rather fast and kind of mild but does offer some recoil effect and of course the ability for a single action trigger. We will have to see how well the Gletcher TT Tokarev performs once I get out and do a real test.

Build Quality: The Gletcher TT CO2 BB Pistol is really nicely made overall, pretty much the entire pistol is metal except for the grips of course. The finish looks really nice and the fit is good, not a lot of slide wiggle and all the mechanical parts function smoothly with the exception of the rather strange trigger design. You really need to watch my video to see what I mean here!

Realism: I am lucky enough to own a Tokarev type semi auto real steel pistol and looking at the two of them side by side they look very much the same. Of course my Norinco Tokarev (Type 54) Model 213 is made out of hardened weapons grade steel and so it is heavier but the Gletcher TT does feel solid in the hand with it's all metal design. The working slide catch, magazine release and hammer are all in the right places and function as they should. Gletcher even made sure to have a recessed barrel and hidden CO2 screw which adds to the realism. The only real giveaways are again that rather strange looking single action trigger and the two pins near the lower front of the slide. Not a big deal for me though. I do have to mention the way the safety was implemented on this Gletcher TT Tokarev, Gletcher placed it just inside the Slide Stop Retainer Clip in a kind of unobtrusive location.

Pros:

  • One of the only 4.5mm BB shooting Tokarev replicas I have come across.
  • Very solid and weighty gun for its size. Mostly all metal.
  • CO2 is well hidden.
  • Recessed barrel adds to realism.
  • 18 round all metal stick magazine.
  • Blowback operation, slide locks back on last round.
  • Did a good job of making the safety discreet.
  • Shooting performance pros yet to be determined…

Cons:

  • SAO trigger is rather heavy.
  • Trigger looks a bit funky compared to a real Tokarev trigger.
  • Would have liked to have seen a full size drop out metal magazine on this gun.
  • Shooting performance cons yet to be determined…

Comments:So far I have liked all the Gletcher guns that I have come across, it's great that Gletcher offers a lot of unique guns from the past, for me the Tokarev is near and dear to my heart since it is very 1911 like and I truly love the 1911 design. It only makes sense that I would own not only a real steel 1911 but also the Russian Tokarev. I'm not really sure how the Gletcher TT Tokarev is going to perform using the chronograph and during my paper target testing from 30 feet out but to be honest I really don't care all that much because this Tokarev BB pistol is not so much about performance or getting everything absolutely perfect, the Gletcher TT Tokarev BB Pistol is more about offering yet another BB pistol replica of one of the classic pistols at an affordable price and with quality in mind.

Impressive Pistol

I picked up this Gletcher replica of the Russian Tokarev Pistol and I think its Fabulous.it has great heft to it for being a smaller framed pistol . The build quality and fit & finishis really good. It shoots hard but is conservative on the CO2, I can usually get 4 or 5 Magsout of one CO2 cartridge which is pretty good for a full metal blow back pistol. it would have been nice to have a take down leaver to field strip it for cleaning . but I can work around thatoverall its a really nice pistol and feels great to shoot

This video is a walkthrough review of the Gletcher TT Tokarev CO2 BB Pistol. I show off this BB Replica close up from all angles and point out the mostly metal construction and go through the features and benefits of this very unique and historic replica BB pistol.

So far I have liked all the Gletcher guns that I have come across, it's great that Gletcher offers a lot of unique guns from the past, for me the Tokarev is near and dear to my heart since it is very 1911 like and I truly love the 1911 design.

If you have not already watched my Gletcher TT Tokarev CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review, make sure to do so so for info on features and specifications.

During this Field Test Shooting Video Review I take a look at the actual real world velocity of the Gletcher TT Tokarev Replica using my Chronograph along with some accuracy testing using paper targets with a controlled shooting position.

My Chronograph test did not go as smoothly as I would have liked but I did get enough shots to get a realistic 5 shot average 342 fps for this Gletcher TT Tokarev BB Pistol. My 5th shot was a bit lower than the first 4 since I had already shot off about 15 shots and because of the cool temperate outside the gun had cooled down a bit. On a warmer day I would expect to get close to 400 fps out of the Gletcher TT Tokarev CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

Again this Field Test was plagued with difficulties, I actual performed my accuracy test twice for the cameras because during my first go at it, one of the cameras ran out of battery! Hey, it happens! Perhaps I felt a little rushed on my second target shooting test, since I didn't get as tight of a group as I did on the first test. The Gletcher TT is however capable of getting around a 1.5 inch grouping from 30 feet away and the TT shot very well centered for me which is good news since the sights are none adjustable.

I like the snappy blowback action, the Gletcher TT Tokarev Replica is not an overly large pistol and for such an old school design it really feels good in the hand while shooting. I also like the traditional post and notch sights. The Gletcher TT Tokarev CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a single action only gun but I did find that the release of the trigger was a bit heavy which will take some getting used to.

Overall, the Gletcher TT Tokarev is a really nice Blowback CO2 BB Pistol and if you are into the classic BB Replica guns then it is a must have for sure.
