Manufacturer: EKOL - VOLTRAN.
Model: Tuna.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: .9 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single action.
Ammunition Type: 8mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 round magazine.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull of the Tuna is light to medium and as with most of the EKOL guns seems to get lighter as you break the gun in.
Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki blank guns. The EKOL Tuna is well built and uses good quality materials, this gun is almost all metal. The finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect, the gloss black finish on the Tuna looks really good and seems to have filled in most of the imperfections.
Realism: The Tuna is very similar in design and appearance to the Tanfoglio GT27, a small .25 Automatic sub compact pistols.
Purchased 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 this blank gun even for its small size.
  • Inexpensive blank gun to purchase. 
  • Nice extremely compact blank shooter.
  • Worked very well, no jams, misfires or failure to eject or load in my testing.
  • Great training gun, as it operates exactly like a real gun without the deadly force.

Cons:

  • 8mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive.
  • Mine was a bit hard to field strip at first - when removing the slide.

Comments:
The EKOL Tuna blank gun is a nice addition to our growing number of legal blank guns in Canada. EKOL offers a nice variety of models and finishes to choose from. The EKOL Tuna and Volga are very similar with the Tuna being just a bit smaller, chambered for 8mm and the Tuna has a slightly higher capacity magazine. Out of the two, I would recommend the Tuna unless you want to stick with 9mm P.A.K. ammo only.
