New Gletcher APS Air Pistol Announced.

Gletcher, a company that specializes in the production and design of CO2-powered replica firearms, introduce the world’s first air version of the Stechkin pistol, the APS air pistol. Used in numerous conflicts around the world, this replica closely resembles the novel design of the firearm original  at fraction of the cost.

The legendary Soviet Stechkin was developed in the mid-twentieth century, particularly for soldiers who did not carry an automatic weapon or carbine but needed a strong and reliable weapon.

The metal bodied Gletcher APS air pistol is a member of Gletcher’s “Russian Legends” line of CO2-powered guns and is the first air pistol implementation of the legendary Stechkin.

The high combat effectiveness of this firearm was provided by the high-capacity magazine, barrel length, and the availability of automatic fire. Although this pistol is not equipped with an automatic option, it still holds true to its original.

Gletcher says that the APS air pistol has the identical weight and size to the original firearm, a powerful blowback system, and a realistic slide action. This makes this air pistol reproduction a high level of authenticity to the original model.
