Mike's Personal Guns For Sale - Blank Guns

No Comments

I will be showcasing here on the Replica Airguns website and over on the Replica Airguns YouTube channel a series of videos I will be making for the purpose of selling some guns out of my personal collection. I simply have no more room for the new guns and in some cases I either have duplicate guns or very similar versions so there is no need to have both. Some guns I am less attached to and as I already stated I need to make room for some of the new stuff I will be reviewing.

To start this series off my first video is to highlight the blank guns I am selling, there are only 4 of them, all of which are really hard to get here in Canada so I am not going to let them go cheap. By the way I am only selling to Canadian residents since shipping cross borders is a little sketchy.

Make sure to watch my above YouTube video to see the blank guns I am selling and instructions on how you can take part in the sale and purchase of them.

Here is a list of the blank guns I am selling from my personal gun collection:

EKOL ASI 9mm Full Auto Front Firing Blank Machine Pistol $725

EKOL Lady Chrome 9mm Front Firing Blank Pistol $400

EKOL Arda 8mm Blank Front Firing Compact Revolver $200

Bruni ME Ranger 1873 SAA .380 Blank Revolver $300

EKOL ARDA 8MM P.A.K. BLANK POCKET REVOLVER REVIEW

1 Comment

Related Posts:

Type: Blank Pocket Revolver.
Manufacturer: EKOL - VOLTRAN.
Model: Arda.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: .55 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single action.
Ammunition Type: 8mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 5 rounds.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: As the Arda is single action only, the trigger pull requires pre-cocking of the hammer before each shot, just like the old west six shooters.
Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki blank guns. The EKOL Arda pocket revolver is well built and uses good quality materials, this gun is almost all metal. The finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect, the gloss black finish on the Arda looks really good and seems to have filled in most of the imperfections. You will get some powder burns in areas that the gasses escape such as between the cylinder and the beginning of the barrel.
Realism: The EKOL Arda is fairly unique, I don't know of an actual gun that it resembles? It's kind of a cross between a Derringer and a tinny snub nosed revolver.
Purchased From: the Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • In Canada these guns are some of the few blank guns available for purchase that are not prohibited.
  • Would make a good training gun animals (retrievers - guard dogs - police dogs) or a compact starter pistol.
  • Revolvers are always dependable, no loading or ejecting problems like you can have with some semi-autos. 
  • Extremely compact blank shooter.
  • Nice gloss black finish.

Cons:

  • 8mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive.
  • Only holds 5 rounds
  • Single action only with pre-cocking required.
  • The powder from shooting will wear the finish a bit between the barrel and the cylinder.

Comments:
The EKOL Arda blank pocket revolver is a nice addition to our growing number of legal blank guns in Canada. The Arda is a very interesting looking blank pistol and it may not appeal to everyone? I found it so unique looking that I just had to have it as it's just nothing like any other blank gun I own. If you want an ultra compact pistol with revolver reliability then pick yourself up an EKOL Arda and get a small gun with a big bang!

EKOL - ARDA - TUNA - MAJOR - SPECIAL 99 - ASI UZI - 8-9MM P.A.K. BLANK GUN SHOOTING REVIEW

1 Comment

Related Posts:

I have been wanting to shoot my latest batch of EKOL Blank Guns, and today I was able to do just that! I left out my EKOL Firat because I have already done a shooting review of the EKOL Jackal and these guns are virtually identical with the exception of the Jack Dual being a semi and full auto blank shooter. Here are the guns I got to shoot today: (EKOL Arda, Tuna, Major, Special 99 and ASI UZI), all of which where purchased from the Replica Airguns Store.

In this video I use both my Canon T2i DSLR and my Casio EX-FC100 high speed camera so I was able to capture it all in both High Definition and in High Speed slow motion. First off I was very impressed with how all of these EKOL blank guns performed, this was my first time shooting them and they all shot every round without a misfire, jam or loading problem.

UPDATE - Feb. 22nd: Added a YouTube video to this post.

Back on January 30th I made a post about the Replica Airguns Store getting some new EKOL Blank Guns and Airguns. We'll I just got my review shipment of them in today and had some fun looking them all over. I don't plan on keeping all of them, but I will most certainly keep a few for my personal inventory!

Let's take a closer look at some of these fine EKOL blank guns and air guns:

EKOL ASI - $269US(Order-now)

The EKOL ASI is a very nice semi auto and full auto front firing 9mm P.A.K blank machine gun. This well built blank shooter comes with a 15 round and 25 round magazine and has selectable semi or full auto firing modes. This blank machine-gun is destined for my collection...

EKOL FIRAT - $139US (Order-now)

You may remember my reviews on the EKOL Jackal Dual? This is it's little brother in the compact version and with semi auto only. Other than that it's the same exact 15 round 9mm P.A.K. blank gun!

EKOL SPECIAL 99 - $119US (Order-now)

The EKOL Special 99 is a mid-sized Beretta styled blank shooter that comes with a single stack 8 round 9mm P.A.K. magazine. I was instantly impressed with the styling and overall feel of this gun. I'm pretty sure this one is a keeper!

EKOL ES 55 - $159CAN (Order-now)

In the mix of Blank shooters came this EKOL ES 55 4.5mm BB gun, I'm going to have to shoot a few rounds through this arigun before I can really comment on it. Still a very nice looking all metal BB shooter with a full size drop out 16 round magazine.

EKOL MAJOR - $109US (Order-now)

If your a James Bond fan, you will recognize the design of this gun, it's a replica of the Walther PPK compact semi auto, Bond's favorite sidearm in many of the 007 movies. This particular version uses 9mm P.A.K blanks and holds 7 rounds in the magazine. I already have a few PPK styled blank guns so I'm not sure if this one is staying with me...

EKOL TUNA - $79US (Order-now)

Now we are getting into the light weight blank guns, and I thought my EKOL Volga was small! The EKOL Tuna is pretty similar to the EKOL Volga in looks and design but comes in just a bit smaller and hold 6 rounds of 8mm P.A.K. blanks in it's tinny single stack magazine. Even though this blank gun is so similar to my EKOL Volga, I may find it just a bit too hard to give up?

EKOL ARDA - $89US (Order-now)

If you're looking for a small blank gun - look no further! The EKOL Arda is crazy small but even so feels solid in the hand, just make sure to hold on tight! The Arda hold 5 rounds of 8mm P.A.K. blank ammo in it's cylinder and uses a pre-cocked single action only hammer, just like back in the wild west.

EKOL Blank and BB Guns Coming to the Replica Airguns Store

No Comments

Update: Stock has arrived, we are now shipping these guns!

I picked up a few really nice EKOL blank guns a couple of weeks ago to see what they where like. I was not expecting them to be as nice as they where! And I was also impressed with the fact that all three of the guns did not have a single jam, miss-feed or failure to eject the first time shooting them.

I am happy to say that in a couple of weeks, the US Replica Airguns Store will be carrying at least some of the EKOL product line, and not just EKOL's blank shooters but also one of their BB CO2 air pistols, the ES 55.

Here are the products we will be carrying in the Replica Airguns Store:

EKOL ARDA 5 Shot 8mm P.A.K. (Black & Chrome)

EKOL TUNA 5 6 Shot 8mm P.A.K. (Black & Chrome)
