Germany-based Umarex, known for producing replica firearms of some of the industry’s most popular models, will soon add Glock to its lineup. Umarex is the first replica-pistol manufacturer to receive the worldwide license from the Austrian gun maker.
“For years now, the trust between our two companies has been growing and we are looking forward to further developing this relationship with Glock,“ said Eyck Pflaumer, managing partner of Umarex. “From November 2017 onward, gun fans will find the first replicas of these famous pistols in outdoor retail locations almost everywhere in the world.” U.S. distribution is expected to begin first quarter 2018.
Umarex will build Glock pistols in the categories "Airguns" (4.5 mm / .177) and "Airsoft" (6 mm). Particularly attractive for collectors, the license allows the replicas to carry the original markings and be marketed in authentic packaging.
The 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.
