Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.

Pros:

  • In Canada these guns are some of the few blank guns available for purchase that are not prohibited.
  • Very good construction, lots of metal parts and good weight to this blank gun even for its small size.
  • You can get the EKOL Volga  in a nice assortment of finishes to choose from.
  • Nice compact blank shooter.
  • Great training gun, as it operates exactly like a real gun without the deadly force.

Cons:

  • 9mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive.
  • Volga's trigger pull is a bit heavy but it seems to be getting better over time.
  • Hard to get an empty magazine out of the Volga when the slide is back.
  • Only holds 5 rounds.

Comments:
The EKOL Volga blank gun is a nice addition to our growing number of legal blank guns in Canada. EKOL offers a nice variety of models to choose from with an assortment of finishes, the Volga fits nicely if you're looking for a very compact blank gun. The quality and finish is pretty good overall with the usual few imperfection found on low cost blank guns. This gun test fired without incident, I didn't shoot very many rounds through it but I still had no miss fires, failures to load or eject. If you are thinking about getting a sub compact blank shooter, definitely take a look at the EKOL Volga blank gun.

EKOL - Volga - Dicle - Jackal Dual - 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Shooting Review

I finally got to shoot my new EKOL blank firing 9mm P.A K. guns today and I just happened to have my "cameras" rolling: My Canon T2i DSLR and my Casio EX-FC100 high speed camera. First off I was very impressed with how these EKOL blank guns performed, this was my first time shooting all of them and they all shot every round without a misfire, jam or loading problem. I was using Fiocchi 9mm P.A.K. blank ammunition by the way.

Make sure to watch this one, there's lots of action, some full auto, a bit of slow motion and even some full contact!

EKOL - Jackal Dual - Dicle - Volga 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Overview

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: EKOL - VOLTRAN.
Model: Jackal Dual - Dicle - Volga
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 2.5 - 2.5 - 1 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi/full auto single action - Semi auto single/double action - semi auto single action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 - 15 - 6 round magazines.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull for the Jackal Dual and Dicle is fairly light to medium in weight and with the Volga it's a bit harder with more of a medium to heavy trigger pull. I have noticed it getting lighter over time as I work the gun in.
Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki guns, I have not shot the guns so I can not say yet how they will chamber and fire rounds, but my first impressions after spending some time looking them over and handling them is that they are well built and use good materials. There finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect.
Realism: The EKOL Jackal Dual is the most realist of the three guns, and I say that because it closely resembles the Beretta 92 FS. And it does look very much like the Beretta 92 FS in many ways. The Dicle and the Volga however do not closely resemble any other guns that I can think of. The closest gun to the Dicle I would have to say is the Beretta PX4, but the Dicle is more like a PX4 and a Sig Sauer combined into one gun. The Volga is similar in design but not spot on to other small .25 Automatic sub compact pistols.
Purchase From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • In Canada these guns are some of the few blank guns available for purchase that are not prohibited.
  • Very good construction, lots of metal parts and good weight to these blank guns.
  • EKOL has a nice assortment of styles and colors to choose from.
  • In the case of the Jackal, this gun would make a good Beretta 92 FS blank shooting replica.
  • Great training guns, as they operate exactly like real guns without the deadly force.

Cons:

  • Jackal Dual's rear safety is non-functioning, this is a bit confusing.
  • 9mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive.
  • Volga's trigger pull is a bit heavy but it seems to be getting better over time.
  • Hard to get an empty magazine out of the Volga when the slide is back.

Comments:
These EKOL VOLTRAN blank guns are a nice addition to our growing number of legal blank guns in Canada. EKOL offers a nice variety of models to choose from with an assortment of finishes. The quality and finish is better than I expected from EKOL, almost matching the Zoraki products and that's a pretty high pedestal to achieve. If you are thinking about getting a blank shooter, definitely take a look at the EKOL VOLTRAN line of blank guns.

Three New Blank Guns - EKOL - Jackal Dual - Dicle - Volga

As I mentioned with my two new BB guns, my mailbox yesterday was teaming with goodies! I also received three new EKOL (Voltran) Blank Guns. The EKOL Jackal DualDicle and the Volga. The Jackal is basically a Beretta 92 FS Replica while the EKOL Dicle and EKOL Volga do not look super close to any one particular pistol. They are all 9mm P.A.K. front shooters, I decided to purchase mine in a variety of different finishes: Gloss black, Satin, and Fume.

I have not had a chance to shoot these guns but initially I am very pleased with the overall quality and finish, like my Zoraki Blank Guns, they are also made in Turkey.

The Beretta look alike Jackal Dual is both semi and full auto selectable, and is really a very solid gun with a beautiful glossy back finish. Probably the nicest finish out of the three.

The EKOL Dicle (not sure who named this gun) kind of looks like a gun that a Sig Suaer and Beretta PX4 gave birth to! It really looks in many ways like a bit of both of them. Again I was impressed with how solid this gun was. I really like the two-tone satin look of this blank shooter.

My EKOL Volga looks a bit like a Titan E27 .25 Automatic in some ways and again has a two-tone look but not as drastic as the Satin finish on my EKOL Dicle. This blank gun is even smaller than my Zoraki M906 yet still chambers six 9mm P.A.K. blank rounds in the magazine.

Of course I will follow this post up with some reviews of these fine 9mm P.A.K. blank guns...
