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 CS9 - Smith & Wesson CS9 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Review

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: Retay.
Model: CS9.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 2 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single action only.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 13+1 round magazine.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the CS9 is fairly light with a shorter pull. There is no double action on the Retay CS9 but it does have an exposed hammer making it easy to pull back and fire if you have a round already in the chamber but your gun is de-cocked.

Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my EKOL blank guns which is what you would expect since they are both Turkish made guns. The Retay CS9 is well built and uses good quality materials with pretty decent fit and finish, this gun is mostly metal and has good heft for its small size weighing in at 2 pounds. My review unit is the Gloss black version but keep in mind we will be selling the CS9 in Matte Black and Satin only. The Retay CS9 performed very well for me and had no problems with chambering, firing and ejecting rounds when I tested it, just like the other Retay blank guns I tested before it

Realism: The Retay CS9, Smith & Wesson CS9 copy is a pretty good Smith & Wesson CS9 replica with the exception of the de-cocker and a few other minor differences. The basic gun shape and main features are similar to that of a Smith & Wesson CS9.
Purchased From: the Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Good hefty 2 pound weight.
  • Almost all metal build
  • Black finish looks really nice on this gun - Satin would give it a nice tow tone look also.
  • Decent replica of the Smith & Wesson CS9 semi auto pistol.
  • Smallish gun but still holds 13+1 double stack magazine.
  • Performed very well in my tests with no chambering, firing or ejection problems.
  • Easy to field strip with the supplied tool.
  • Fills the void the Zoraki 914 left behind in Canada.

Cons:

  • Barrel back pressure screw needs to be removed in order to use flare adaptor.
  • Could have been just a bit closer to the real CS9.
  • No Manual or cleaning rod included.

Comments:
I wasn't sure about the Retay CS9 at first and kind of preferred my Retay Baron HK and Eagle over the CS9 at first but this smaller Retay has really grown on me. It's almost the perfect size yet it retains a very compact frame while still having a mid sized guns weight and magazine capacity. And as mentioned, it kind of fills the void that the Zoraki 914 left behind when it was reclassified as a prohibited firearm in Canada. I will most likely be picking myself up a Satin version of this one to go with my black Retay CS9, hey you can't lose at this very good price.

Retay Baron HK - Sig Sauer P228 9mm P.A.K. Blank Gun Review

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: Retay.
Model: Baron HK.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 2.3 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single action only.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 14+1 round magazine.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Retay Baron HK is about light to medium with a fairly short pull. The actual real steel Sig Sauer P228 would have both single and double action but many semi auto guns shoot in single or double action only.

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 Baron HK is well built and uses good quality materials with pretty decent fit and finish, this gun is almost all metal and has good heft to it weighing in at 2.3 pounds. The matte black finish on this gun is pretty close to what you would find on a blued gun but with less shine to it, keep in mind we will be selling the Baron HK's in Matte Black and Satin. The Retay Baron HK performed very well for me and had no problems with loading, firing and ejecting rounds when I tested it.

Realism: The Retay Baron HK Sig Sauer P228 copy is a really good Sig Sauer P228 replica. The grips could even almost be swapped with a real Sig Sauer P228 grip if the screw holes where just a bit closer to the center of the hand grip. The basic gun shape and main features are almost dead on to the real Sig Sauer P228 including the de-cocker, slide catch and take down leaver. Internally the gun does differ as the Baron HK has a single action only trigger and a fixed barrel.
Purchased From: the Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Good hefty 2.3 pound weight.
  • Matte black finish looks close to blued finish, satin finish also available.
  • Good replica of the Sig Sauer P228 semi auto pistol.
  • Working de-cocker.
  • 14+1 round double stack magazine similar to real steel version.
  • Performed very well in my tests with no chambering, firing or ejection problems.
  • Easy to field strip.

Cons:

  • Barrel back pressure screw needs to be removed in order to use flare adaptor.
  • Grips are a bit shiny and the texture takes some getting used to.
  • No Manual or cleaning rod included.

Comments:
This gun for me was another must have blank shooter as I already own a real steal 9mm version of this gun (My Norinco NP-34), I just really like the look of Sig Sauer semi auto pistols! I will be getting another Retay Barron HK but this time in the satin finish. Because I have the real gun version, I was able to see how really close this gun is to an actual Sig in looks weight and handling. As a training gun, this is ideal as there is much less risk when using blank guns for practicing things like holster draws or even basic gun control drills.
