Gletcher Goes Fully-Auto

By Ted Lund

 

Thanks to Gletcher Guns’ exhaustive attention to detail and military precision, shooters can relive the experience of what it was like to fire one of the 20th century’s most iconic handguns – the M712.

m712-1Gletcher’s  M712 is faithful to the original, which was one of the first handguns in the world to feature full-auto mode. The iconic original was a substantial handgun, which sported a large-capacity magazine. It quickly became the go-to weapon for military forces around the world. Even today, this pistol remains one of the most fascinating – and famous – firearms in history. It was favored by Winston Churchill during the Boer War, and was the standard-issue weapon for Germany’s Luftwaffe during World War II.

The Gletcher M712 implements the main highlights of the authentic 1932 model, including the full-auto mode; it also incorporates a number of historic traits from the original. One of the main distinguishing features of its namesake was the unique breech mechanism, which Gletcher has reproduced visually and mechanically; it moves while firing, just like the original. The M712 also incorporates a blowback system, which provides recoil movement and simulates the realism and visceral feedback offered by the original M712.

This elite member of the Gletcher family is manufactured with extreme precision and attention to detail. Along with the other flagship models offered by the company,  the M712 is one of the most functional and comprehensive air replicas in existence.

Firing .177 caliber BBs supplied from an 18-round magazine, the M712 sends projectiles downrange at 361fps, courtesy of the integrated C02 cylinder. The dimensions and all-metal construction also keep the M712 true to its heritage. Constructed of modern zinc-aluminum alloys, the M712 achieves a weight of two pounds, nearly identical to the original.

Like all members of the Gletcher family, the M712 is backed by an 18-month warranty. Focusing on customer service, Gletcher does its best to provide a warranty service for its products around the world by establishing contact with consumers through dealers and sellers. High-quality materials and strict quality control eliminates technical problems while using the company’s products.

Gletcher  Guns – a world leader in the pneumatic gun market – is a subsidiary of Sport Manufacturing Group, an American company founded in 2008. In the United States, Gletcher replica airguns are used by firearm owners to maintain their shooting skills. In Europe, due to strict firearm regulations, Gletcher products provide enthusiasts with the rare opportunity to capture the spirit of owning legendary firearms. The company’s reproductions have also become popular replica sidearms for airsoft players. To learn more about the M712  or any of Gletcher’s other replica airguns, visit www.gletcherguns.com.
