Umarex announce Glock licensing deal

You could probably make a good case that the Glock pistol represents one of the defining handgun designs of the late 20th Century. Which makes it all the more surprising that there are no officially licensed Glock replicas in any calibre. Until now! Today (Friday 22nd September), Umarex announced that they have concluded a formal licensing deal with Glock which will allow them to produce Glock replicas in both 4.5mm and 6mm.

There is no information yet on precisely which Glock models will be replicated by Umarex, though the photograph accompanying the Press Release (above) shows what’s described as the Umarex Glock 17, so that’s presumably one of the first replicas planned. The Press Release also notes that worldwide distribution is expected to begin in November 2017, so there shouldn’t be too long to wait until we find out just what’s covered.

You can read the full text of the Press Release and watch a short teaser video on the Umarex website.

One thought on “Umarex announce Glock licensing deal

  1. Although not officially a Glock, the KWA ATP is said to be a near replica. I hope Glock/Umarex will use a quality manufacturer like KWA and not make the mistake that Sig did on their toy version of the P320. However, I’ve not seen any KWA pistols in 4.5mm caliber so I doubt KWA will be the manufacturer.
