In March in Nuremberg, GHK will present its first gas-powered pistol. It will be a fully licensed replica of the Glock 17 generation 3 pistol, manufactured by GHK for Umarex. The most important feature of the new replica will be a milled steel slide.
At this point, it is worth noting that currently available licensed Glocks, manufactured for Umarex by VFC, have slides made of ZnAl. In turn, versions intended for uniformed services (M&LE) distributed by the French Spartan company (subsidiary of Cybergun) have high-grade aluminum slides.
The production process and parts used have been properly prepared and strengthened to cope with the increased weight. The diameter of the nozzle has been increased, and the polymer frame is reinforced with steel inserts. The same frame manufacturing technology is used by Glock.
The first replicas will be powered by Green Gas magazines, but it is already known that CO2 magazines will also appear.
As we have learned from Umarex, licensed VFC Glock replicas will remain on the market. GHK Glocks will be slightly more expensive and will be premium products.
Below is a video by GHK presenting the new product. Particular attention should be paid to the section about trigger hardness (1:57). I think it promises to be a very interesting pistol.
