World Market Leaders Join Forces: UMAREX Receives GLOCK License

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. The worldwide distribution is expected to begin in November 2017. Particularly attractive for collectors, the license allows the replicas to carry the original markings and be marketed in authentic packaging.

Huge steps are made to make Airsoft possible in Australia

Australian MLC Wants Airsoft Legalised

Video released by the Liberal Democrats in Western Australia show Aaron Stonehouse, MLC launch a campaign to legalise airsoft in Western Australia. This is probably the strongest campaign to have airsoft legalised in Australia after many years of efforts by airsoft organisations in Australia to have their sport recognised. Australia has very strict gun laws.

Watch the dedicated Facebook Page of the Western Australia Airsoft Club about the campaign to legalise airsoft in Western Australia! Give them a like and show them some love from the rest of the Worldwide Airsoft Community... Good luck Aaron, Mark & Laurentiu! Their next step is a face-to-face meeting with the Minister for Police by the end of August. They got full support from the European Airsoft Association (EAA) and UKAPU.

Friends and family live in Australia, hope to play some day with you guys :)


The Airsoft Glock 17 pistol is reality!

Cybergun Announces The Fully Licensed Inokatsu Glock 17 Airsoft Pistol

The Airsoft Glock 17 pistol is reality!

There has been a huge buzz over the internet reagarding the fact there wasn't a real licensed Glock pistol available for Airsoft. All started with first pictures of Marck over at RedWolf Airsoft of his imaginary Airsoft glock. Times have changed, Cybergun did just introduce a real fully-licensed airsoft Glock for regular airsoft players! Cybergun had the Glock contract since Oktober 2015.Their first pistol was announced around Januari 2016, a Glock training tool for the French Interior Ministry. Now Airsofters can get a hand on a fully licensed Glock 17. So that means our imaginary airsoft Glock has become a thing of the past...

There is a small problem though, this Inokatsu Glock 17 Gas Blowback Pistol will only be available in France, so lucky are those airsoft players who are residents in France. However I am sure it will spread to the rest of Europe, including The Netherlands very fast.

The Glock 17 pistol is licensed under the Inokatsu brand. Cybergun acquired the Taiwanese airsoft manufacturer Inokatsu in 2010 with a plan to provide premium airsoft products and Inokatsu is an established name for premium airsoft guns. That means the pricing for the Inokatsu Glock 17 GBB Pistol will command a premium price! Initially, Cybergun will be releasing a Limited Edition Inokatsu Glock 17 GBB Pistol with a price of €350 and it will just be limited to only 100 pieces. The photos included here are what airsoft players can expect to receive if they get the limited edition which will come with a Glock t-shirt, case, Glock Cap, and a Glock Patch apart from the pistol and magazine. It is on pre-order as we speak. Also mentioned on their facebook page, a regular Inokatsu Glock 17 Gas Blowback Pistol with a price of €250 will also be released and orders will be taken by the 28th of August.

Regarding pricing, it is in the Inokatsu range… Which will make airsoft players, even in France, to hesitate as it is expensive though we expect that Cybergun may not find it difficult to sell as there airsoft players wanting to own a fully licensed airsoft Glock. The question is if it will perform better or as well as the Marui G17 Gas Blowback Pistol or even the WE Airsoft G17 GBB Pistol. It would have been great if it is Glock 17 Gen 4. Unfortunately, this seems to be a Gen 3 version.

After all those years the Glock airsoft pistol is real and out there soon! Will you buy this unique item at the price point Cybergun is asking for? Let us know in the comments!

UPDATE: 40 items expected to arrive in The Netherlands @ Bunker 501...
