For all that asked, the new pellet shooting Glock 17 Gen 5 is coming out sometime around the end of the year (probably early 2022 in Canada). ... tol?m=5337

Looks like it uses a 20 shot belt, similar to, but a bit different than, the Sig pellet shooters.

If it actual shoots at 350 fps with standard weight pellets (7-7.4 gr.) that would acceptable. I wonder if the slide locks back on the last shot, as most blow-back pellet shooters do not.

Many blowback powder burners struggle with the last shot hold open as well especially with after market magazines.
Not surprised that a pellet version with lighter magazine springs would be challenged with this.

I mentioned on a different post that my preference is to skip the blowback since it is never going to simulate an actual recoil and muzzle jump of a powder burning gun. I would rather get more shots out of a CO2 cartridge and skip the extra moving parts.

I know that makes it much less accurate as a replica but works for me.
