After the Glock 17 Gen.5 airsoft replica, it's time for a paintball one. Umarex has presented a new replica in its offer. It is a fully licensed fifth generation Glock 17 paintball replica. The GLOCK 17 GEN5 T4E is designed as the original: a polymer frame with a CNC machined aluminum (7075) slide. The power is to be supplied from a magazine that holds a 12-gram CO2 capsule and 8 balls of chalk or paint. According to the information provided by the manufacturer, the muzzle energy is to be above 5 Joules and it will be possible to fire up to 40 shots on one capsule. Two types of magazines will also be available: standard tool-free or an optional Quick-Piercing magazine. The entire replica is to weigh 703 grams.
The replica will have all the parts characteristic of the fifth generation Glock 17: double-sided slide stop, a removable magazine release and a trigger with a safety. The replica will also be compatible with accessories meant for the real firearm: interchangeable grips in various sizes, sights and holsters from the most popular manufacturers. An interesting fact is that one can now buy an extended version, which will additionally include an original Glock suitcase, a set of interchangeable grips in various sizes and a cleaning rod.
