Royal Arms Glock 19 copy

Royal Arms have been making copies upon copies of famous brands. I got a chance to try their Glock 19 knock off. The pistol comes in a plastic box padded with foam. A spare mag is also included. So just see the pics and decide for yourself, if its any good.

Good quality finish. They claim to have used the same material as used in the original Glock, but I have my doubts.

Without a doubt the quality of workmanship is really good.

Target shot at 15 M with 9 mm Chinese 311 FMJ. Standing, both hands, deliberate fire. Recoil was manageable but trigger was hard with creep. With use may become more soft.

The Verdict. Well in handguns I always rate reliability as the number one factor. No use putting your life in danger with a cheapo. But nothing can be said about its reliability for sure. The Glock 19 copy is being sold here for Rs 35 K, plus or minus a few thousand rupees. It is an impressive handgun as far as looks are concerned. I believe considerable effort and investment has gone in its production. The gun is selling like hotcakes, and according to the owner most of the buyers are from Punjab or Sindh. The sad part is that these gun makers lack proper quality control, so consistency is not assured. Also making illegal copies of the famous brands is another issue. Absence of Research and Development also means they will go on making copies. So locally they might be a hit, but internationally they would stand nowhere. But that’s the way these industries have been surviving for decades.

    1. Yes its fake. Last I checked it was selling for Rs 35000, that would make $350. But I am not sure how one can send it over to the US. And if you can buy one in US for $500 why go through this hassle? 🙂
      Cheers
