Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 11.66 Pounds (642 grams).
Barrel: Smooth bore 10.8 inch barrels.
Propulsion: Green Gas or Propane.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only trigger.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 22 round drop out full size metal magazines.
FPS: Claimed 410 with .20 gram Airsoft BB’s.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 is fairly short with only a little bit of take up, the release is light and crips. The blowback action resets the internal Hammer / Striker with each shot for that true single action trigger and it’s also nice that the trigger does have a working trigger safety like the real steel versions.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot either of the long barrel Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 so I can only quote what Umarex is saying in terms of FPS which is around 410 using Green Gas or Propane. These longer barreled versions should shoot fairly hot compared to the much shorter barreled versions and since i do have a short barrel Glock 17 Gen 4 I may also compare it at the same time to see what the actual barrel length does in terms of fps velocity. Of course my Field test Shooting video will also focus on accuracy add see what can be accomplished shooting a 10 shot grouping at 30 feet down range.

Build Quality: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 seems well made overall. It does seem a little bit underweight but still feels solid enough in the hand, Glocks are not known for being all that hefty. The Slide is metal but has a bit of an unusual finish that makes it look a lot like the plastic frame rather than a more shiny metal look. All the parts seem to fit nicely, maybe even a bit snug at first as I noticed the side had a bit of friction to it but seems to be working in nicely now.

Realism: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 look the part of these Glocks all day long. Other then the slightly lighter weight it would be hard to tell off hand until you remove the magazine and take a closer look. All the parts work as you would expect them to, similar to the real steel version and you can even fully field strip the them which makes getting to and adjusting the hop-up easy enough to do.

Pros:

  • Decent weight and feel to them, build quality seems good.
  • Really nice looking replicas of the original Glock 17 Gen 4.
  • Fully Glock licensed via Umarex.
  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back with rear sight adjustable for windage.
  • Recessed barrel for added realism when cut down.
  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.
  • Full size drop out metal magazines that holds the Green Gas and 6mm Airsoft BB’s.
  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet under trigger guard.
  • Nice light SAO trigger as the blowback action pre-cocks the internal hammer/striker.
  • Working trigger safeties.
  • No red tips and more realistic outer barrel size.

Cons:

  • Only comes with the longer barrel so you need to either cut it down or replace it with a shorter barrel.
  • No way to put a mock suppressor on it to keep extended barrel.

Comments: Getting the Umarex BB versions of the Glock 17 and Glock 19 has for sure been a bit easier since fps velocity is not a factor. So it’s great that we at least have a way to import these two Umarex Glock GBB Airsoft Pistols into Canada! Yes some home modifications may be required to cut down the inner barrel as the long extended barrels are certainly not practical for every day shooting. That said with the extended long barrels I did get out and shoot a few rounds through them and the added barrel length really does allow for a much faster velocity Airsoft BB making these Umarex GBB Airsoft Glocks more like snipper pistols.

Solid collector piece.

Biggest selling point for me is it's fully trademarked, more solid build quality (over WE and TM ie. less rattle) and pretty much 1:1 dimensionally with realsteel. Been working flawlessly so far after about 1000 rounds. Can get 2-2.5 mags worth of shots on a full 7 second fill. Came with the extended and short inner barrels. A bit pricier here in Canada but definitely worth it rather than trying to import one yourself. If you don't plan to upgrade almost everything or are a collector I'd choose this over TM or WE. AFAIK stock for upgrades like a fixed/threaded outer barrels for tracers are hard to come by for this model. Might be a worthwhile upgrade in the future if I can find one. Regular wear and tear for floating barrels starting to show. I use dry graphite powder lube and it hides it well. Only questionable quality thing is the anemic trigger safely, as it uses a plastic blade as it's spring so it's basically mush. I cut a few coils off a spring from a bic lighter and fit it onto the blade and it feels much better. Not specific to this gun but a issue for me so far is losing fill port o-rings. They usually fly away into the abyss when I pull the gas away too fast and the last burst of gas forces the o-ring up and away. Remedied by slowing letting off while keeping the gas needle pressed lightly into the port.

Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 - Glock 19 Gen 3 GBB Airsoft Update Video

Make sure to visit my written post for this video with additional photos over on ReplicaAirguns.com:

In this YouTube Update Preview Video I go over a couple new Umarex Glock Licensed GBB Airsoft Pistols that I feel require a bit of explaining. Essentially we already stock these same Umarex Glock Blowback Airsoft Pistols, but in the CO2 magazine versions. The Umarex Glock 17 Gen4 and Umarex Glock 19 Gen3 I highlight in this video come with Green Gas Magazines and both have extended inner barrels to allow for Canada import to increase the velocity to our over 360 fps using a .20 gram Airsoft BB.

Usually Green Gas Airsoft Pistols with extended inner barrels will have the ability to unscrew the extension and will even come with a shorter replaceable barrel but in this case all you get is the longer one piece inner barrel. My suggestion is to either cut down the long inner barrel to fit within the out barrel or purchase a short inner barrel when they are available.

At the moment we do not have either one of these Airsoft Pistols listed in our Replica Airguns Stores but they should pop up shortly!
