Friday, September 22nd, 2017

ARNSBERG, GERMANY (September 22, 2017) – UMAREX GmbH & Co. KG (UMAREX) headquartered in Germany receives the first worldwide license from the well-known Austrian weapons manufacturer, GLOCK, for the reproduction of its internationally recognized pistols. UMAREX is thus writing a new chapter in its success story as the world market leader in licensed replica handguns. Eyck Pflaumer, managing partner of UMAREX, summarizes the results of the intensive negotiations, “For years now, the trust between our two companies has been growing and we are looking forward to further developing this relationship with GLOCK. From November 2017 onwards, gun fans will find the first replicas of these famous pistols in outdoor retail locations almost everywhere in the world.”

Founded in 1963, GLOCK has been setting the global standard for handguns with polymer frames for decades. UMAREX and GLOCK are two world market leaders meeting on equal terms, the best prerequisites for a successful partnership. UMAREX will in the future build the famous GLOCK pistols in the categories “Airguns” (4.5 mm / .177) and “Airsoft” (6 mm). GLOCK replicas will be distributed worldwide through sporting goods dealers, except in France and French territories. Umarex USA and the Elite Force Airsoft group of Umarex USA will distribute the world-leading GLOCK pistol replicas exclusively throughout North America. Distribution in the USA is expected to begin first quarter 2018. Particularly attractive for collectors, the license allows the replicas to carry the original markings and be marketed in authentic packaging.

Make Any Glock Full-Auto

Friday, March 4th, 2011

With SIGG’s FSSG drop-in selector switch. It replaces the rear slide plate on any model Glock and allows the user to switch between full and semi-auto, up to 1200 RPM. Although the legality of making your pistol full-auto varies by location, the price one of these switches is going for on this auction is almost too good a deal to pass up. Of course it always helps to see it in action before you buy:

And when I said any model Glock, I meant it: that’s a Glock 35, which fires .40 caliber. Wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that.

Das Doppleglock

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Available only to law enforcement and government, the Glock models 18 and 18c are 9mm pistols, almost entirely indistinguishable from the Glock model 17, except for their ability to go fully automatic. It seems this isn’t enough, for the ‘Doubleglock’ was born. A custom kit that combines two Glock 18s, probably both 18cs, with a center red dot for accuracy. Although I find personally find little use for any full auto pistols, let alone two strapped together, I must say this is pretty clever. It should also win all your battles from looks alone. No one wants to be staring at the business end of this bullet hose.
