It is a semi-automatic, blowback, single action and has a barrel which is almost 3 and a half inches long which can give a velocity of up to 310 FPS.

What’s really good about this pistol is the fact that it has a blowback action which adds realism to the feel of the gun. You will notice it has a blade within a blade, so only a proper finger position and a pull will allow it to fire which adds to the safety system of this gun. With its authentic looks and a realistic recoil action this is a brilliant Co2 replica of the original Glock 17 4 Gen by Umarex!
