Where are those Retay Blank Guns I Ordered!!!

I have to start off by please asking everyone to take a deep breath and try and relax just a bit... I have been afraid to look at my email because so many of you are asking about when the Retay Blank guns are coming and if I was you I would probably be emailing me too!

This is what's happening. Remember the BB AK 47 incident, I know I'm trying to forget about it but it is now effecting how Air and Bank Guns are being handled in customs. The CBSA has been taking a fair bit of the heat with the whole "how did these so called (convertible) AK-47 BB guns get into Canada in the first place". And it looks like importers are now getting punished for the CBSA mistake by the CBSA holding onto flagged imported items for extended periods of time. Don't be fooled, this has turned into a money making opportunity for the CBSA as they have a $1000 per day warehouse storage fee on items being held for import. No this is not a typo, that's $30,000 per month so if you thought your 10x10 storage unit was costing you a boat load then think again!

Thank God I am not an importer or I would be shutting down and perhaps thinking about getting a government job as government employees don't seem to be accountable to anyone and now make even more money by doing even less to help legit Canadian business owners - sorry if I seem a bit miffed, but I was arrested a few weeks ago and hand cuffed in front of my family and then released without any charges or apologies, yet the police still held on to all my business related items for over a week that I need to run my business. And now the CBSA is making it very difficult to import legal products that are the foundation of my business.

And don't think this won't effect you! Because of these extraordinarily high CBSA storage fees, my importer/s will be forced to raise the cost of the items I purchase from them and in turn I will be forced into raising the price I sell these inflated items to my customers. And it has already started... I just raised the price of the Retay Blank Guns so for those of you that already "pre-ordered" you are now getting an even better deal. This of course is offset by the delay and I apologies for this but it is beyond my control.

I hope this all blows over but who knows for sure? My advice is to buy now while prices are still low and most items are still in stock;) 

If you already bought a "Pre-sale" Retay blank gun then congrats on saving even more money. If you don't want to take advantage of the savings and would perhaps prefer changing your order to a differnt item, then please contact me with your order number and the item/s you would like to change your order to and I will apply a full credit towards the new item/s.

Retay Eagle - Desert Eagle 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Review

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: Retay.
Model: Eagle.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 3.1 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single & double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 18+1 round magazine.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Retay is about medium pull, it is a bit heavier in double action mode as would be expected and I found that the release is fairly near the very end of the pull. I'm pretty sure the real Desert Eagle only has single action operation but being able to shoot in both actions is kind of nice.

Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my EKOL blank guns which makes sense since they are both Turkish made guns. The Retay Eagle is well built and uses good quality materials, this gun is almost all metal and has good heft to it weighing in at 3.1 pounds. The finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect. The satin finish on this gun has a raw metal look but with a slight gold tint and a semi polished look, keep in mind we will be selling it in Matte Black, non-shiny Chrome and Nickel. The Retay Eagle performed very well for me and had no problems with loading, firing and ejecting rounds when I tested it.

Realism: The Retay Eagle Desert Eagle copy is a pretty decent Desert Eagle replica with a few small exceptions. Overall I would say it is slightly smaller than a real Desert Eagle and has a bit smaller handle which may be good for people with smaller hands and it also has 2 screws near the front of the slide on each side that would not be there on a real Desert Eagle.
Purchased From: the Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Good hefty 3.1 pound weight.
  • Satin finish looks good but the Nickel is going to look even better :)
  • Good replica of the Desert Eagle semi auto pistol.
  • Trigger is both single and double action.
  • 18 round magazine is very high capacity for a pistol.
  • Performed very well in my tests with no chambering, firing or ejection problems.
  • It's a Desert Eagle for goodness sake - isn't that enough!

Cons:

  • Slightly smaller in size then a real Desert Eagle?
  • The screws on the slide are a bit out of place and would look better color matched.
  • Barrel back pressure screw needs to be removed to use flare adaptor
  • No Manual or cleaning rod included.

Comments:
This gun was a must have blank gun for me, owning a real Desert Eagle is pretty much out of the question because they are not cheap to buy and operate. For a very small fraction of the price of a real Desert Eagle I get to own the next best thing and as a matter of fact, I may just buy one in each color since the price is very affordable! As with many of the blank guns, the Retay Eagle would make an excellent prop gun for TV or Movie scenes. And you can always impress you friends by pulling out the Retay Eagle and proclaiming "That's not a gun - This is a gun!"

Retay CS9 - Baron HK - Eagle 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Preview

 

I will be doing full reviews of these three Retay guns; the CS9 (Smith & Wesson CS9 Copy), Baron HK (Sig Sauer P228 Copy), and the Eagle (Desert Eagle Copy). For know I wanted to at least give you a quick preview video of them. My full review videos will focus on each Retay blank gun individually and go into detail with shooting tests and Fields Strips when possible.

My basic first impressions of this new blank gun offering from Retay is that they are a welcome addition to our current blank gun offerings here in Canada and what I like most is that all three guns are very different in look and design then the EKOL guns we have had for some time now. As far as quality goes, I would say they are on par with the EKOL guns and being that they are made in Turkey this shouldn't be too unexpected.

Keep checking back as I will be reviewing all three Retay 9mm P.A.K. blank guns over the next little while.

Added Retay Eagle 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun to the Store

Last but not least and certainly not the smallest! I just added the Retay Desert to the Replica Airguns Store. And I am sure most of you can figure out what this 9mm P.A.K. blank shooter is a replica of... the infamous Desert Eagle! I wanted to make this one just a bit more special by also offering it in a shiny Nickel finish. It also comes in Matte Black and Chrome but keep in mind that Turkish Chrome is not a shiny Chrome, it's more like a soft metal look.The Retay Desert is being pre-sold at a special pre-sale savings of $44 off on this one, shipping right around October 20th.

The Retay Eagle is a very nice copy of the IMI Desert Eagle full size semi auto pistol. It is a mostly all metal 9mm P.A.K. blank shooter that is front firing and comes in a hard shell case with a flare adaptor. This blanks shooter can be shot in both single and double action and is a real handful!

  • 9mm P.A.K blanks
  • 18+1 round magazines
  • 3.1 pounds
  • Semi auto
  • Single & double action
  • Front firing
  • Desert Eagle copy

Blank Gun Teaser - Retay CS9 - Baron HK - Eagle 9mm P.A.K.

I just got three new 9mm P.A.K. Blank guns to look over. These ones are from Retay, another Turkish company. Retay makes a Smith and Wesson CS9 copy, a Sig Suaer P228 copy, and a Dessert Eagle copy. And I have to say they look pretty darn good on first impression. Now I know I'm going to be getting emailed like crazy about whether we are going to be carrying these guns and you're just going to have to wait to find out. So stay tuned for more information to follow...

Here's some photos to keep you drooling for now!
