Customer Reviews for Umarex Glock 17 Gen4 BlowBack BB Gun

Brand: Umarex Canada

Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Glock 17 Gen 4
Materials: Metal and polymer
Weight: 771 g (1.7 lb)
Barrel: 91.44 mm (3.6 in), metal, non-rifled
Power Source: 12g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-Automatic, blowback, single action only
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 18 rounds
FPS: 310

Trigger Pull: Single action only so you will need to rack the slide first to not only chamber a BB in the breach area but to also cock the internal striker. There is a working trigger safety and you’ll also find the Glock 17 Gen 4 has a nice, short, and light trigger similar to the real steel Glock. Perfect for fast action shooting!

Accuracy: Umarex claims around 300 FPS but I was able to get a little higher with my 5 shots through the chronograph, averaging 310 FPS. I was able to get around a 3.5 inch grouping but I feel I could've done better since several rounds actually shot one on top of the other. The Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen did shoot a little low and to the left but not a lot.

Build Quality: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 looks to be well-made with metal and plastic parts where you would find them on a real steel G17 Gen 4. Fit and finish are nice and the slide wiggle is next to zero. The slide spring is very heavy and the sound of the slide when racked and released doesn't have that cheap metallic sound some blowback airguns have.

Realism: Umarex's replica 100% looks the part of a Glock 17 4th Generation Gun. Sitting on the table and even holding it in your hand you are going to think it's the real deal until you drop the magazine and see that it is a BB/CO2 mag. Mostly everything operates like a real Glock 17 including the slide catch release, trigger safety, magazine release, and even the take down switches for quick field stripping and access to the adjustable hop-up.

Pros:

  • Good weight and feel, build quality seems very good
  • Really nice looking and full featured replica of the original Glock 17 Gen 4
  • Fully Glock licensed through Umarex
  • Easily visible front and rear white dot sights
  • Recessed barrel for added realism
  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light
  • Full size drop out metal magazine holds CO2 and 18 rounds of BBs
  • Heavy slide spring should have a heavy blowback recoil effect
  • Safety built into the serial number plate area keeps it well hidden
  • Additional backstraps for different-sized hands
  • Discreet warning instruction under trigger guard
  • Great feeling single action only trigger

Cons:

  • FPS could be higher
  • Sights are non-adjustable
  • Would have liked to have seen more pristine packaging from Glock

Comments: I know everyone has been waiting for Umarex to release the Glock 17 Gen 4 BB Pistol and here it is finally. I really like the trigger on the G17 Gen 4. It’s short and light, perfect for shot placement and action shooting. The blowback action is nice and crisp, giving the Glock just enough blowback recoil effect. I didn't have any issues with the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4, which makes for the best testing out of all the Umarex Glocks to date. The Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 BB Pistol is by far my favorite version! If you already have an Umarex Glock, that’s OK get this one too, you won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t bought one of the Umarex Glocks so far then this one is the one to have, but I say why not have them all :)

Wow factor guaranteed

Absolutely delighted with my purchase. Not as accurate but perfect for plinking. In the looks and function area it arguably surpasses every pistol out there.

Realism and reliability

Good overall performance. Only issue I've had is with the spring in the magazine needing to be reseated for the pin at bottom of mag. Shoots fast and we'll. About 4 mags for 1 CO2. Tends to curve up slightly.

My new 17 gen4

I received my Glock 17 gen4 yesterday and all can say is that I’m impressed. I put it along side of my real 17 gen4 and it all most in possible to tell him apart visually. The weight is prefect as well as the site picture. Mechanical it works the same except the spring tension of the slide is much heavier on the real gun, but this certainly a great training gun for anyone that has a real Glock 17. Hats off to Umarex great job

Nice gun just like the real thing I would say the best out of them all glad I bought it only thing I don’t like about it is it’s very hard on co2 with the full blow back but who really cares
