Retay X1 9mm Blank and Pepper Rounds Gun

R2,095.00

he latest of the RETAY range, the X1 model is a medium size pistol, with a modern tactical style.
Chambered in 9mm PAK, it can shoot blank, CS or pepper gas, or flash cartridges.

 

Compact blank gun, size approximately comparable to the GLOCK 19 in size.
It has the flat muzzle end, like you’d have on the GLOCK Gen 3 series, 95mm / 3.7″ barrel length w/ flush barrel end. Underbarrel Picatinny rail, GLOCK style, w/ one slot. This rail measures 44mm. The trigger is metal, about 6mm at its broadest point.
The cocking serrations are nice and pronounced, featuring 5 vertical grooves, 3mm broad and spaced 2mm apart. This makes the blowback spring not feel quite as stiff as RETAY springs typically are.
The slide catch is 15mm broad, wide on top for better grip, unserrated. The safety is a rear flip-up thumb actuated type, best toggled w/ your left(offhand) thumb when yielding the gun w/ left hand over right hand shooter’s grasp.
The thumb rest is a post modern forward canted type, ambidextrous, though not the most tactical design in our opinion. We would have loved to see an indentation slope type instead on this gun.
And yes, the frame is completely polymer.
Speaking of which; this handle type is identical to the XPRO model one, which RETAY refers to as their “XTOUCH TECHNOLOGY” – a feminine sloping backstrap, stippled up the curvature w/ the model logo embossed at the base.
The frontal side of the handle has ergonomical finger grooves, also thoroughly stippled and complimented by the curved buttplate on the magazine.
The field strip tab is a BERRETA forward quarter-turn type that can is pulled out, in order to lift the slide off.
To add to the overall positive reaction this pistol garnered from us, this pistol furthermore comes standard w/ the ability to half-cock, that minimizes the force needed to shoot this gun in double action, should that be desired. This would naturally minimize the barrel jerk once the trigger does climb off the sear.
In single action, the trigger travel is minimal and the trigger breaks shortly after the slack has been taken up – which for shootinjg up to 20 meters is perfect. The hammer doesn’t hit overwhelmingly hard either, (though we don’t recommend dry firing your blank gun for training purposes!)
The sights are as erected as a German Shephard’s ears when the scent of an aggressor draws neigh and can be dabbed w/ glow-in-the-dark paint if desired – just be sure to work carefully and use a jig.
