I wasn’t sure if I was going to get my hands on one of the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen GBB Airsoft Pistols since the velocity was a bit low for Canada import but somehow we managed to squeak some in to our Replica Airguns Canada Store and for me to get a review out for everyone!. In this video we see how well Umarex’s Gas Blowback Glock 17 Gen 4 performs in the Replica Airguns Indoor See Can Shooting Range. I test out the velocity and accuracy and also talk a little bit about how the gun performed overall for me. And yes I have already made a Table Top Review Video so if you want those closeup shots and specifications then watch that video too…

Starting off with my velocity power test using my Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph and using .20 gram Airsoft BB’s with a full magazine of propane gas, I hit an average of 283 fps with the fastest shot getting 289 and the lowest shot hitting 279 so only a 10 fps difference. Shooting conditions where decent in the See Can, a lot warmer than outside but still not as warm as your typical summer day. The temperature was 15 Degrees Celsius (59 Degrees Fahrenheit). In warmer conditions I am sure I would have hit closer to 300 or even high fps with the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen GBB Airsoft Pistol.
