Umarex is the world’s largest manufacturer of firearm replicas and the largest importer of air guns in Europe.
Its licensed replicas include the CO2 version of the Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver and the blank-firing replica of the GLOCK 17 Gen5. The Umarex catalog has now been expanded by another GLOCK - the first official GLOCK paintball marker this time.
The all-new GLOCK 17 Gen5 T4E is a .43-caliber replica developed and manufactured in Germany, a CO2-powered pistol made for paintball sports and training scenarios.
The Umarex GLOCK paintball marker features an 8-round magazine that can hold either paint- or powder balls in caliber .43. The magazine also accommodates a 12-gram CO2 cartridge that can be quickly swapped without tools.

Umarex GLOCK 17 Gen5 T4E, superior performance
The Umarex GLOCK 17 Gen5 T4E is designed for mag-fed paintball and training purposes. It reproduces not just the appearance of the live-fire counterpart, but also all the Gen5-typical features found on the current GLOCK 17: the ambidextrous slide stop lever, automatic trigger safety, front serrations, and reversible magazine release. Compatible with GLOCK sights, GLOCK holsters, and many other aftermarket parts.
Two version are available: a Limited First Edition and a Standard Edition. The Standard Edition comes with a T4E case, interchangeable mag ejector lanyard, drop-free CO2 magazine and squeegee. The Limited First Edition adds to this a limited edition GLOCK case, 4 backstraps (sizes medium and large, each with and without beavertail) and a backstrap tool.
This is what the manufacturer has to say: “With precise dimensions, the GLOCK 17 Gen5 T4E marker gives you familiar handling, which allows operators to choose from a wide range of accessories and attachments already on the market.”
Umarex guarantees superior performance, the result of meticulous development work and precision manufacturing from top-grade materials. For example, the slide is CNC-machined from high-strength aluminum (AW 7075), with a realistic blowback slide action. Muzzle velocity is up to 360 fps (110 meters per second), and you can fire up to 90 shots with one CO2 capsule.
The GLOCK 17 Gen5 T4E is suitable for all T4E roundballs in cal. .43 and will be available at US paintball and airsoft retailers – as well as at the Umarex Airguns web store – at an MSRP of $349.99 for the Limited First Edition and $329.99 for the Standard Edition.
