Wow! This P698 Glock 26 Design Spring Gun is really a great little piece and has a lot going for it, specifically in this price series of springtime airsoft weapons. Initially, the total appearance is pleasing, otherwise totally precise with regard to the surface texture variations between the slide as well as built grip-frame which would be common of the genuine Glock. There are extremely visible molding lines on the trigger, slide, framework and magazine base, yet in this price range this is to be expected.
Likewise, the gun is imagined with an orange tinted Uzi for sale muzzle end slide face, however as provided features a complete size black slide and also orange barrel extending approx 1/4 to 5/32 inches beyond the slide, which I at the very least discover a lot more appealing. The photo additionally shows ‘BATTLE DELTA’ and also 9×19 caved in right into the left slide face, however my own arrived ‘smooth’.
So … just how does it feel and shoot. In brief – great. It’s not surprising that Glock’s are so prominent. It simply naturally fits, at least in my hands. The grip contouring as well as thumb indentation, also including the ‘pinkie rest’ on the publication expansion, the back band form and also radius, trigger as well as trigger guard notch are all ergonomically appropriate for an instinctive ‘grasp’, site picture & target procurement. What I find exceptional is just how the front site blade aesthetically indexes so accurately within the ramped Novak style rear site blade (and also on such an inexpensive handgun), allowing a very specific website photo which minimizes the result of the brief website distance.
I’m sure this makes perfect feeling to those of you that appreciate such things. The magazine holds 9 BBs, and is fed by manually pulling back a springtime packed ‘fan’, hence permitting the insertion of BBs into the ‘ammunition well’. The follower integrates a detente notch allowing the individual to lock the follower spring in the base placement while loading – a good touch – though probably not actually required. Simply keep in mind to launch the fan to guarantee proper feeding prior to reinsertion of the packed mag. Depressing the magazine release when the gun is upright will promptly drop the mag – there’s no binding – yet the mag catch clicks and also holds safely. Being that it is a spring airsoft gun, the slide should be manually retracted to compress the springtime and also cock the handgun for every discharge (shot). By the way, I’m particular this is ho hum stuff to a lot of you, however, for those new to Airsoft, it’s tolerable info., especially since this is such a wonderful ‘starter gun.’
Anyway, the spring really feels actually firm, probably due to the fact that this is such a little pistol, and I found it needed to hold the slide pretty much along it’s length in between the 4 fingers and also thumb of my left hand. I intend one ‘can’ cock this gun by gripping just the cocking serrations on the rear of the slide, but I don’t recommend this approach, as doing so requires a grasp tight enough to dimensionally press the slide. After a couple of times though, it ends up being acquired behavior. The very first shot was an actual shock. This thing fires hard for a low cost springer, and I highly advise proper eye protection, specifically if there’s any type of opportunity of a ricochet. I didn’t ‘bench’ this point for precision, yet it would certainly be interesting to see just how it groups and also at what distances.
Trigger activity was additionally a good shock, without any take-up like a lot of actual Single action/double action Euro wonder nines. Apply pressure and also the trigger moves rearward about 1/8 – 3/16 of an inch and also releases crisply (on my example). Trigger pull is tactile however not as well rigid. By the way, I really did not subject the handgun to any torment examinations or place a gazillion rounds through it, but then again, it still impresses me at this cost. The gun is available in a molded Styrofoam box with a published cardboard cover as well as a sample pack of.12 gm. BBs, every one of which were quickly dispensed through my example, easily. So … there it is. I actually like the P698, to the degree it’s type of tough to put it down. I simply ask yourself if any type of real Glocks may be offered as a result of someones exploration of this fun little point?
Addendum thoughts: First of all, why such an extensive review of an affordable spring gun? Initially, there isn’t always a distinctive as well as practically measurable relationship between the expense of a product as well as the enjoyment one experiences about it’s use. To put it simply, it doesn’t constantly take a lot of cash to have a great deal of enjoyable. In some cases, there’s an inverse expenditure/benefit relationship (more money, much less enjoyable). Besides, Airsoft clients appear to be extremely passionate regarding their viewpoints of every little thing Airsoft, and no wonder.
