Haven't bought a new AG in ages, this one kinda intrigued me, so pulled the trigger.

Got it for $170 CND from Replicaairgun.ca plus taxes and $15 shipping.

Gun comes in lame clamshell packaging unlike the Cardboard glock box like in Europe,

I stuck it in an old Glock plastic box which I don't use anymore, but it works perfectly for this pistol.

The branding is good but The European one has 9x19 on the slide, seems like this was removed from this gun, and other North American versions I've seen. :(

Congratulation. Nice choice.

It is a known fact that most lubricants and cleaners intended for 'powderburner' are NOT good with today's airguns. Not suggesting that you've used them.,..but with the Hoppes Gun Oil in your picture I don't know if that is a safe choice for the Umarex airgun.
What is recommended is the venerable Pellgun Oil or non-aerosol Silicone oil where these lubricants are safe with the Seals; O'rings and plastic parts that make up the internals of most replica CO2 BB and Pellet shooting airguns. Just suggesting.

Happy shooting!

I have waited so long for the 17 in .177 that I finaly crached ( 3year's ago) and got myself an airsoft one (quite accurate), got use to it and now can't decide if I get rid of the airsoft and buy the .177, or keep the 6mm...

For the moment it's 60/40 for the airsoft... :roll: ..

same story for me, had all the Glock's airsofts available since 2011, they shoot verry accuratly, but the only downside i found was the green gas manipulation. Had one with co2 , and the valve broke on the first mag, not designed for.

I'm verry pleased with my .177 co2 Glocks now! Those are built for Co2!

I run my 17 on CO2 (3 mag) gun is very fine with it, except the CO2 mag knocker valve is very fragile, right now one is on life support for heart surgery...
