EKOL Aras 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Shooting Review

Related Posts:

Here is a fairly short YouTube video of my EKOl Aras 9mm P.A.K. Blank gun (Browning Hi-Power Replica) shooting 5 blank rounds in semi auto. I use my HD camera and high speed camera to capture the event in regular speed and slow motion. The EKOL Aras fired all 5 rounds without any failures to chamber, fire or eject.

EKOL ARAS 9MM P.A.K. BLANK GUN REVIEW

Related Posts:

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: EKOL - VOLTRAN.
Model: Aras.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 1.6 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single & double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 15+1 round magazine.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull of the EKOL Aras is decent in both single and double action modes, not as light as the EKOL Special 99 when in single action but still very good. The pull is long but the break point is predictable once you know where it is. Even when shooting in double action the trigger pull is moderate.
Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki blank guns. The EKOL Aras is well built and uses good quality materials, this gun is almost all metal and even though I would say it is a medium size gun, it still has good heft to it. The finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect. The Gloss Black finish on this gun smooths out any small imperfections you might see in the Satin version. This is the only EKOL blank gun I own that has the rubber wrap around grips - a nice touch!
Realism: The EKOL Aras closely resembles the Browning Hi-Power semi auto pistol, the EKOL Aras I was reviewing was the Compact version, the Aras Magnum version is more like the Browning Hi-Power.
Purchased From: Replica Airguns US Store.

Pros:

  • Nice weight and a good medium sized semi auto with a 15+1 magazine gun.
  • Gloss Black finish looks really nice on this gun with the contrasting chrome barrel.
  • Good replica of the Browning Hi-Power 9mm semi auto pistol.
  • The trigger is nice and light although maybe a bit long.
  • Wrap around rubber pistol grips on this gun look really good compares to some other EKOL grips that are kind of plasticy.

Cons:

  • It was hard to find anything to complain bout with this blank shooter?
  • It is a bit hard to get the slide catch-release out when field-stripping.

Comments:
I have to say I really like the EKOL Aras, it's a nice compact size and weight but still holds 15+1 rounds of 9mm P.A.K. blanks. Mine came with rubberized wrap around grips, something none of my other EKOL blank shooters had. The Gloss black finish on the EKOL guns is always nice and this one looked even better with the contrasting chrome barrel and ejection port. If you like the Browning Hi-Power look then you will probably like this blank gun and it would also make an excellent training gun for browning fans or for just about anyone for that matter.

EKOL ARAS VOLGA, DICLE & JACKAL COMING TO THE REPLICA AIRGUNS STORE

Related Posts:

I wanted to bring a few more EKOL guns to the Replica Airguns Store. I have done reviews on guns like the Jackal Dual, the Volga and the Dicle but to date I have not had them available for purchase. I'm happy to say I will have them starting April 1st along with my latest blank shooter from EKOL, the EKOL Aras in both the Magnum and Compact versions.

Since I didn't have the EKOL Aras, I wanted to have one in my hands before offering it on the Replica Airguns Store. I have to say it is very nice. I ordered mine in the Compact Gloss Black version and it looks even nicer then I was expecting. I was actually expecting the non-wrap-around grips as most of the pictures online show the gun that way. Another nice touch was the chrome barrel and ejection port opening. Needless to say I am very happy with my EKOL Aras and will be doing a shooting and table top review as always for it.
