Type:BB Pistol Manufacturer:Gletcher Model: SS 2202 Materials: Polymer body and metal slide Weight: 600 g (1.32 pounds) Barrel: 102 mm (4 inches), smoothbore Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1 Action: Non-blowback - double action only Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs Ammo Capacity: 21 rounds FPS: 427
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher SS 2202 is double action only but is very smooth and fairly light. It does allow for some pretty quick shooting even though it is double action only. When you pull the trigger the internal barrel moves back into the magazine while the internal hammer moves rearward and then releases forwards, striking the CO2 valve releasing CO2. It is a very simple yet effective design.
Accuracy: I have not done any preliminary shooting with the Gletcher SS 2202 Sig Pro Replica so other than how the trigger feels I cannot comment too much on the performance. If I were to base my result on the performance of the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP 2022 I tested previously, then I can expect very high FPS and good overall accuracy, we will have to wait and see...
Build Quality: Build quality was very good, I was extremely pleased with the fit and finish of my Gletcher SS 2202 BB Pistol! The polymer frame and metal slide, along with the all metal full size drop out magazine, gave this BB air pistol a really nice balance to it.
Realism: The Gletcher SS 2202 Pistol is very close to the look and feel of the real Sig Sauer SP2022 Sig Pro! For a lower cost airgun, I was very impressed with all the details and closeness to the real steel Sig Pro. There is no actual Sig Sauer licensing on the Gletcher SS 2202 but other than that it is pretty much identical in appearance. It would have been nice to have a working slide and slide catch release but at least you have the ability to take the slide off for cleaning and oiling if required.
Durable metal slide
Full size all metal magazine
Very accurate Sig Sauer SP2022 replica without licensing
May have good FPS! Fingers crossed!
Nice light and quick double action trigger
Picatinny rail for accessories
No blowback - slide does not move either
Hammer does not move at all
Non-adjustable rear sight
Comments: I have always been a big Sig Sauer fan so I like the look and feel of the Gletcher SS 2202 CO2 BB Pistol. I would love it even more if it had a working slide with blowback action but then again the non-blowback version keeps things simple so should be super reliable and have good power. I am optimistic about the FPS performance of this pistol since I got such good results when I tested my Cybergun distributed version a while back. Stay tuned for my Field Test Shooting Review for this pistol to find out how it does...
I bought this gun for my friend to scare magpies off her front lawn. It feels pretty nice, speed is pretty good and lots of shots per CO2 cylinder. The loading device they include is excellent. Caution, if you have a loaded magazine in with the safety on, bbs drop out of the barrel if you pull the trigger. Trigger pull is excellent for a non-blowback gun. Also they say it is a metal slide but mine shipped with the plastic slide. All being said I think it is a great gun for the money.

Good gun really powerful , pretty lightweight but with the magazine in feel really good
This is my Official Field Test Shooting Review video for the Gletcher SS 2202 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol. You can also checkout my full review including a Field Test for the KWC SP 2022 which by the way is pretty much the exact same BB pistol but distributed by KWC rather than Gletcher.
In this Field Test Shooting video I test out the performance of the Gletcher SS 2202 Metal Slide using my Chronograph to get a real world Feet Per Second rating, I also step back 30 feet and shoot 10 rounds at a paper target using a semi rested position (Sand bag up front and standing in the back).
In terms of velocity the Gletcher SS 2202 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol performed very close to the KWC SP 2022 review I did earlier shooting as high as 468 fps. I did have some chronograph miss-readings that made the average come down a bit but I would say a flawless string of readings would have been around 450+ fps.
Stepping back 30 feet and shooting at my paper target, the Gletcher SS 2202 CO2 BB Pistol produced a respectable 4 inch grouping that was just a little to the left but not by too much. I really like the trigger on the Gletcher SS 2202 CO2 BB Pistol, for a double action only pistol it is very smooth, light and not overly long! The release is very predictable and there is zero stickiness in the first stage.
The fairly high fps for a shorter barrel pistol is most likely due to a more than average amount of CO2 released per shot but even so you can expect close to 100 shots per CO2. If you plan on using the Gletcher SS 2202 in your back yard, keep in mind that it is louder than most CO2 BB pistols, it really gives a nice loud crack with each shot.
All in all a real decent performance out of the Gletcher SS 2202 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol, if you are a Sig Sauer fan like I am then this Sig Pro replica is a no brainer to have in your collection!
