Two New Blank Guns Added To The Collection - Zoraki M917 & Umarex SW1911

When ever I can get my hands on some blank guns at a realistic price or perhaps a trade that works for both parties, I generally try to make it happen. And if they are guns that I don't have in my collection, well they go directly into my collection so please no offers from fellow Canadians as I tend to hold onto my more rare or hard to acquire Canadian replica guns pretty firmly! You can buy the S&W 1911S if you live in the US!

Both of these 9mm P.A.K. Blank shooting guns are not brand new but they are in very good condition and it's hard to even say it they have been shot or not? My new Zoraki Mod. 917 as you can see, is styled very closely after the NAME REMOVED and so much so that all new version sold in North America must have "This is not a Glock" engraved on the right side frame of the receiver in order to be sold. Mine however was purchased before this requirement :) UPDATE: NO LONGER BEING SOLD IN NORTH AMERICA.

My Umarex SW1911 S is licensed by Smith & Wesson which makes it pretty hard to get in Canada becasue for a very long time we have not been allowed to import any replica guns and since it is licensed it makes it a true replica and would normally be stopped at the boarder. You may own replicas in Canada without a said license but you need to make sure they are stored and handled as defined by the requirements outlined in the Canada Firearms Act.

The S&W 1911 S is for sale in my US Replica Airguns Store for my US customers.

I will be reviewing the Umarex SW1911 but not the Zoraki M917 as I have already reviewed a Chrome Slide version of it.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull has a medium pull and also has the built in trigger safety found on the real NAME REMOVED. There is also a grip safety that is used in combination with the trigger safety giving the Zoraki M917 a double safety system.
Accuracy: NA.
Build Quality: The overall build quality of this gun is excellent. The design and materials all seem to be of good quality as is true with all of the Zoraki blank guns. Out of all the blank guns I have reviewed the Zoraki gun materials and workmanship are closest to what you would find on real steel guns.

Realism: This gun is not "supposed" to be a replica of any gun in production but it does look amazingly similar to a NAME REMOVED semi auto pistol. The Zoraki M917 is different in that it has the double safety system with the extra grip safety on the back of the grips. The take down switch is also more like what you would find on a Walther series pistols but it makes for very easy field stripping!
Supplied on loan for review.

Pros:

  • Excellent construction, built pretty much just like a real NAME REMOVED.
  • Front firing and flawless performance.
  • Interesting double safety system.
  • Super easy to field strip.
  • High capacity magazine.
  • Come with a very nice hard shell case and accessory package.

Cons:

  • Not available in Canada at this time:(
  • NAME REMOVED users may not like the double safety system.

Comments:
The Zoraki MOD 917 is another very fine blank gun from Zoraki (ATAK Arms) which is exactly what I expected it to be! It is a real shame we can not import blank guns in Canada at this time and also the recent prohibition of several of the Zoraki blank gun models like the R1, M914 and M925. Make sure to watch my YouTube video on the Zoraki M917 for more information on what is happening in Canada with blank related importation. If you're are lucky enough to live in an area like the US or other parts of the world where your government does not treat you like a small child, then you can have one of these beautiful blank shooters!

You may wonder how I got my hands on a Zoraki M917 front firing blank gun, this one does not belong to me but was sent for review by one of my viewers which was very generous! Not only is it near impossible to get any new blank guns in Canada these days, but many of the Zoraki blank guns are now considered "prohibited", like the Zoraki R1, 914 and 925, thankfully there rae still a couple Zoraki blank guns that are not on the hit list like this M917 Glock inspired blank shooter and also the Zoraki M906.

I plan to talk more about some of this in my full review so make sure to watch that review if you want to know more about what is going on with blank guns in Canada these days.

Enough politics for now, here are some more photos for you to enjoy till I do my full review which I plan to do very soon since this blank firing Zoraki M917 is on loan to me...

Zoraki M906 Back in the Store - Very Limited Supplies!

This is going to be a rather short lived post because I think this will be the last of these very popular Zoraki M906 blank guns. I was only able get a small batch of them and based on all the request I have had since we ran out, I'm pretty sure they will be gone fairly quickly. So if you're one of the people who has been emailing me asking for one, this is probably your last chance to get one.
