So it isn’t a fantasy after all 

Available to prevent order for Asia market first typically, hopefully one of two things happens quickly. Retailers in Europe get to supply or Samoon (Taiwan govt more like) remove restrictions on sending RIF’s to uk

 

Qu4d look to be the first to get one to review, and quite rightly so, their videos are amazing !!

The whole thing looks very nice, but I won’t be jumping up and spending stupid money on one.

 

I might organise a personal import if they don’t become available quickly in Europe

If I can see properly and that is $400 USD then by the time it reaches the U.K. it is going to be at least £300 (possibly more). That is a pretty strong price for a GBB pistol.

 

I hope I’m wrong and they come in cheaper. I’d be prepared to pay £300 but any more and I’ll be passing.

Doing the man maths on it - £130 for a TM G17, £220-250 for a steel slide and internals, so you're up to £350 ish for that off the bat, but pre built with a new system.

 

But can see it being £400 in UK shops.

I’ll stick with my WE G23 any day…

At £300 i'll order one the day they are available in the uk. Any more than that and i'll wait for the used ones to turn up, which is bound to happen once a few of them get played with and the disappointed purchasers realise a £400 pistol doesn't immediately turn you into John Wick.

Do you understand what GHK is offering here?  A revolutionary design (even if it's in the shape of a Glock) with a steel slide and barrel.  It's incomparable to any WE pistol tbh.

Absolutely.

It will probably be worth the money, but only if it works reliably.

 

We won't know that until owners have been using it for 12 months at least.

You mean expensive guns don’t make me good at Airsoft ☹️

In an age when most manufacturers are making it easier to adjust hop, GHK have found a way to make it harder 🤔

Every video I see of this leads me to thinking they've made an excellent RIF and training weapon but not an optimal Airsoft gun. 

 

- Difficult to load mags.

- Painful hop adjustment.

- Heavy trigger.

- Difficult (shown to be far more-so than the real steel) to disassemble.

Now have one. Only used it once so far, so limited information 

Pro’s

Excellent build quality 

Slide well finished, not sure what the finish is, but it’s not a paint.

Con’s

Trigger is very heavy, haven’t got a gauge but would guess about 7+ lbs 

Mag is slow to load, speed loader is supplied and needed. 
If you try to squeeze the trigger very slowly you can hear a small gas release, don’t think this a fault though, just down to the no hammer design. 
Definitely a collectors piece and not suitable for the skirmish field.

Then they should really do away with the "Licensed product of" markings.

Heavy trigger and hard to reload mags would necessarily put me off from skirmishing one. 
 

GHK mags and GBBR mags in general do have a learning curve to reloading them quickly.  And the DAS M4 has (or had) an unrealistic heavy trigger.  People skirmish both of these guns all the time. 
 

Any possibility of doing the Devil Hunter mod on these GHK Glocks, do you think?

Ah and I was contemplating buying this based on the impressive blow back................. But the last thing I need is another sluggish pistol.

Not really a fan of M9 grips. They're a little too chunky for me.

Fair enough. I've always been a fan of the m9. Had the rs years ago.its just the roundness and 'I mean business' appeal of it. Just picked up the full auto here on the forum.
