Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is what I'd call a double action trigger mainly because there's an indexing of the BB from the magazine into the breach area every time you pull the trigger. This means that the take-up is longer thanks to a standard Glock take-up, and there's a little bit of friction from the mechanical mechanism that indexes the BB, making the trigger feel more like a double action only trigger.
Accuracy: I got really close to the factory-claimed FPS of 360 with an average of 347 FPS. In warmer conditions I'm sure I would've hit the claimed FPS or higher. For the field test, I placed 10 shots into a paper target from 30 feet down range using my standard seated and rested shooting position. I got right around a 2 inch 10-shot gorup, not bad at all! It did shoot a bit high and to the left, which for some reason is common with most CO2 action airguns. I know it's not entirely me since others have commented that their airguns shoot to the left in most cases. Elevation was pretty close at 30 feet but just a tad high.
Build Quality: The Umarex Glock 19X seems to be really well-made. Fit and finish are nice and slide wiggle is minimal. There is a bit of a clanky sound when the slide cycles, but not as bad as the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3. I also think the coyote finish is the nicest looking with its black on tan two tone look.
Realism: The Umarex Glock 19X BB Pistol absolutely looks the part of a Glock 19X. Sitting on the table and even holding it in your hand, you're going to think it's the real deal until you drop the magazine and see that it's a CO2 mag. Mostly everything operates like a real Glock 17, but the slide is not a full blowback, meaning it only goes back about 3/4 as much as a real Glock 17 slide would. One other noticeable difference is the ability to quickly field strip the Glock 19X. You'll need to remove a pin since the take-down tabs are non-functioning and molded into the frame.
Comments: It’s great to see Umarex expanding their line of Glock licensed airguns, and the addition of the Glock 19X is welcome! Some of you aren't going to like the semi-blowback action but it does mean you get higher FPS and more shots per CO2 while still getting that simulated recoil from the blowback action. I honestly think the Umarex Glock 19X is one of the most attractive Glock airguns with its coyote tan frame and slide with black highlights. I also like the compact size for its shortened frame and slide over the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3. So many to choose from now but I guess that's a good thing, or perhaps just get them all!
