Ohh a parcel from Cybergun! I wonder what’s inside ooohhh, a Glock baseball cap! ooohhhh there are goodies, that’s awesome, I love goodies that’s all I needed see you soon in the Lair xoxo! Hi everyone welcome to the Lair yes, it is here, the Glock17 from Cybergun first of all I’d like to thank them for sending me the gun one week before it is released since Cybergun announced the gun, there has been quite a fuss about it on social networks and airsoft forums some people verbally killed themselves because “omagad that’s Cybergun!” other people are happy, others don’t give a flying fuck because they don’t fancy Glock products so, why is it such an event? simply because Glock had never given any clearance to any airsoft brand to replicate their products even if we’ve been able to buy Glock replicas for many years this gun I have here is the first one which is a licensed product the whole lot of our old guns are considered as counterfeit guns by Glock if you’re into airsoft news, you know that 2 years ago Cybergun had a licence agreement for law enforcement and military market so they took what already existed with VFC but realised that it wouldn’t fit all the needs and requirements of the customers so the R&D team at Cybergun had to ask for modifications especially since airsoft Glocks couldn’t fit in real holsters because they used Marui dimensions well, you can watch this extract of video if you want a bit of the story and how they modified the guns to fulfil armed forces requirements August 2017, here is the first licensed Glock available to the public this is a first batch, other models will be released in the future they started by the Glock17 because it was the most used gun in the defence contract they built new moulds for the frame so now the gun has real dimensions there is a “collectible” edition for the first 100 guns delivered in a special box, with Glock goodies it costs 350€ and there is this version, delivered in a Glock case, it is the same as the one provided with real guns here it is, with a real Glock inside this package is sold 250€ it created more fuss, “it is too expensive”, “that’s a rip-off” and so on why does it cost 250€ ? Well, I’m the one talking here, not Cybergun it is not about buzzing or anything because I’m sure most of you will still buy “Glocks” from other manufacturers I suppose they wanted to propose a nice replica for the first model to be released and use the “Inokatsu” branding to launch a new range of hi-end replicas Cybergun bought Inokatsu a few years ago it sounds Japanese but it was a Taiwanese company which designed very nice airsoft kits and had airsoft factories build them you may remember the AKM kit or the Colt 1911 so here, instead of using a zamac moulded/injected slide, Cybergun used aluminium blocks and machined them with CNC then they installed it on the new frame changed a few parts of the trigger assembly because the first iterations were plain old Stark I could manipulate them two years ago, there were the same ones I had at home! but I’ll stop this chitchat, even if I think it is important to put things into context and I suppose I’ll have a bit of moderation to do in the comments because of so many people ranting, mostly because they don’t know anything or don’t want to know anything about this gun the problem to them is not really Glock, the problem is Cybergun getting the license.
.. there’s a peculiar relationship between players in some countries and the French company and speaking about the French, this first Glock will only be issued on the French market let’s have a look at it as I said, this is an original Glock case around it is a nice cardboard sheet with all the laws and regulations at the back as well as the license agreement so if you can buy this product outside France and its territories, that’s not normal^^ here is the Inokatsu authenticity certificate this means that the replica has gone through a lot of quality checks before being released, we’ll see that in the complete review.
.. If you’ve watched my videos about the IWA fair, you know that they have FNX-45 CNC slides, Sig replicas and many other things from now on, Inokatsu will be used for hi-end replicas sold by Cybergun they used to do this before with their “Spartan Import” wing to sell VFC SCARs and other expensive replicas now Spartan deals with the military market, and Inokatsu becomes the hi-end wing of Cybergun products but once again, I’m the one speaking, Cybergun may correct me if I’m wrong I think they’ll talk about that on their FB page because it created a real confusion among customers well, as usual thousands of people don’t say anything or are pleased, but you focus on the dozen who’re not happy so keep in mind that Inokatsu is a Cybergun branding for “more than average quality” products damn, I’ve been taking for 20 minutes and we haven’t seen the gun yet! more goodies! But I don’t think they’ll be in the box when you buy the gun I think they know I’m a goodie-whore and will say nice things about their gun if they give me plenty of those! there’s a 6mm-Allen key in the box because the replica is delivered with a CO² magazine and there’s a small part to put above the BB-follower it allows dry firing, for short movies and so on then the users’ manual with safety tips, as well as how to use the gun adjust the hop-up etc.
as you can see this is a regular hop-up system why change something that works? and here’s the gun a bit greasy I can hear you ranting : it is a GEN3, why didn’t they make a GEN4? well, ask Cybergun! Maybe it was the most used by law enforcement you gotta start with something! as I told you it is delivered with a CO² magazine you can see the bulb inside, they must have tested the gun no Glock markings on the huge mag plate they’ve installed a screw here to prevent the plate from being lost while you play let’s remove it, it is useless to do so but I want to check the big screw be careful to retain the spring otherwise some parts will fly! of course to replace the CO² bulb, just insert the Allen key through the mag plate and remove the empty bulb from the side of the magazine look at this extra part here it has been installed to reduce the amount of BBs you can put to a maximum of 17 just as on the real gun should you remove it, it raises to 24 BBs good news, the screw is made of steel some other brands used nylon fibre screws that would wear off quite easily there are some markings here at the back let’s compare with a real mag too bad Cybergun couldn’t replicate the markings I guess this gun is compatible with other magazine brands, I’ll test that later on I’ll reassemble the magazine people may not like the look of this mag plate, you can use gas magazines too I’m sorry I won’t be able to compare it with my Marui gun but here I’ve got a GEN4 from Stark Arms and at first sight we can see that the frame dimensions are different especially near the rail here Cybergun were allowed to use the real dimensions as we can see here so it will fit any holster here is my IMI defense holster it is not a NUPROL copy the real Glock fits Cybergun’s fit but the Stark doesn’t even if I’ve filed the holster a bit there’s a metal plate with the serial number there’s a small square on the trigger guard markings are shallower than on the real gun I won’t talk about the colour difference because the real gun has a specific treatment and is made of steel the replica slide is made of anodized aluminium on the other side, a “made in Taiwan” sticker I’ll remove it to see what’s under it there’s supposed to be Glock markings here well, Cybergun was not allowed by Glock to use full markings so there’s nothing here there’s an engraved serial number once again people ranted that there were “white markings” it is not white, it is the colour of aluminium you can use blue gun product to make it disappear each gun has its proper serial number, this is number 191 as we could see before and there’s a small Glock marking here, typical of US-made Glocks once again, Cybergun had to adapt to Glock demands on my gun I’ve got Autrian proof marks the serial number is also engraved on the barrel it is not the case on the replica there’s only the real calibre no proof marks, no Glock logo, that was Glock requirements the sticker says 1 joule max, let’s remove it! the front sight is a new one it is the same system as the real one, except that it is held by a Phillips screw, not the hexagonal screw and the rear sight is held by a screw passing through the blow-back housing we can’t compar.
.. hey ! we can’t compare with my gun because I’ve installed glow-in-the-dark sights but the overall dimensions seem to be well duplicated this is a nice frame it seems sturdy and there’s a nice Glock logo this is not stippling but the “rough texture finish” grip is comfortable here’s the magazine release the advantage of GEN4 is that you can install the mag release for left-handed players but there is an ambidextrous part from Airsoft Artisan for GEN3 very convenient for lefties and it gives a touch of colour to your gun! and is compatible with Cybergun’s Glock you’ll be able to use some after-market parts to customize your gun We’ll talk about compatibility in the full review on the blog the CNC-machined aluminium slide has been anodized when you see the price of some after-market CNC-slides, I suppose that the high pricing of this Glock is not surprising Stark CO² Glocks with injected slides were sold around 200€ in France and the steel-slide version was more than 350€ so I wonder if in a near future Cybergun will issue cheaper models with injected slides but as you can see the anodizing is a bit fragile on this zamac-made slide this could be sold around 130-150€ but once again, it is only suppositions here the only thing I know for sure is that they’ll release other models here are the dimensions of the gun stripping the gun is similar to any other airsoft replica cock the gun and then pull the slide lock to release the slide the rails are made of alloy the internals probably look familiar to you they took what already existed and tried to improve the reliability the hammer assembly is made of steel but the firing pin seems to be made of alloy they didn’t just took a Glock on a shelf and packed it in a fancy case the spring guide is made of steel and there are two recoil springs let’s remove the barrel very greasy! the hop-up assembly is similar to previous productions there’s only a small pin missing the outer barrel is quite heavy something I like is the size of the spacer it is wide, made of steel and not flexible at all you can adjust the hop-up with a wheel of course I’ll tell you all about the barrel dimensions in the review! the BBH has a different profile (top : Cyber, bottom : Stark) they modified it to get a smoother cycle and removed the ability to switch to full auto fire I’ve had, and still have, many stark guns and they all have a scratchy cycle I’ll reassemble the gun and we’ll check the cycle they’ve put grease! I didn’t talk about the extractor! it is a separate part made of anodized alloy and Cybergun have put the licence markings inside the slide so you don’t have ugly markings on the outer side of the slide even if many people would like that our replicas don’t look like real guns.
.. the nozzle sticks to the hop-up unit tight air-seal I guess there are no hard points, this is smooth here is a Stark most of them have this cycling problem let’s test the recoil! wow, seriously? it even triggers my fitbit! massive recoil here! Well, that’s CO² I’ll check with green gas this is a Stark mag very nice! Marui mag WE mag this is good news that the gun is compatible with most Marui-like mags and even APS/Secutor CO² mag this Glock eats anything but KSC/KWA mags! I won’t have to buy extra mags! I won’t talk about the fact that these mags could be considered as counterfeit parts I’m interested in showing stuff, that’s all I like it better with this magazine! even the trigger is smooth you reach the wall and then it is crispy the reset is quite short and nice that’s empty you can easily double tap I think I’m done with the overview sorry there’s a lot of gibberish about Cybergun/Glock/Inokastu talks on the Internet but the gun is well built they were cleared by Glock to hit the market, so they meet all the specs that had been asked too bad that they forbade Cybergun to put the whole markings though the serial number can be easily faded there’s no thread on the barrel it looks nice, I’ll bring it on the field, shoot on targets test the hop-up and I’ll come back to you soon with the complete review on the blog this has been available since Aug 28th 350€ for the limited edition, 250€ for this one don’t hesitate to comment tell me if you’d buy it, if you’ve bought it too keep in mind that this is only a hobby, stay courteous and polite even if you don’t like Cybergun or Glock, comment on the gun, not the people.
.. ah, funny thing, as I’m manipulating the gun there’s a slight gap here between the frame and the slide it is the same on the real gun one last thing, most of the time our replicas have a better finish than mass-produced weapons here the injection line is thinner on the real gun than on the replica if you’ve liked this video or if your mom is a woman, thumb up if you haven’t, thumb down thanks again to Cybergun, they let me tell anything I want to without any pressure see you soon in the Lair xoxo
