The EMG vision is to manufacture products the world has never seen before; products we would put our name on, and products that hit the spot! "EMG" (Evike Manufacturing Group) was spawned from the realization that if you want something done exactly the way you want it, you need to do it yourself, and we did just that.
We took our 16 years of knowledge as the market's lead retailer, our network of 300+ superior manufacturers, to work with inspiring top innovators in the firearms industry. That combined with the vision to invest into the Airsoft industry, an industry we believe in, EMG was born. About SAI - Salient Arms Intl

(Write a review) "Overall a fantastic side-arm! If youâ€™re questioning on getting it or on the fence between choosing this one and another, go with this one! Now... who knows if any other mags will fit snd work properly with this model? Thank you. "I've had this gun for a few months now and have put 8k rounds or so through it. First I'm going to start with the bad. When i received the gun at first the nozzle was unfinished it had extra material around the tip and after 80 shots it cleaned it up. I told this to evike and they sent me a replacement nozzle but i clearly stated that the supposed oem nozzle wouldn't work and they sent it to me anyways. Guess what its a new gen we glock meaning the nozzle and bbu is wayy different meaning incompatible. You also cant really use normal mags and need to get the aw rmr mags which evike still has on preorder. Luckily you can pick them up on kyairsoft along with any part you may need because a lot of the new parts aren't backwards compatible. Second the hop up sucks like it struggles to hop .25s though after swapping to a maple leaf bucking that problem was immediately solved though it still isn't the greatest. The hop up also fits loose in the outer barrel but if you put a slice of electrical tape on both sides where it goes into the outer barrel it will fix that and increase its consistency by a longshot. Third the outer barrel was scratched mines rose gold and it's beautiful but the fact that brand new it was scratched was so annoying though it isn't much of a con since it was going to get scratched at some point either ways. Now the good and i mean the good is a lot of good. The recoil on this gun is amazing. Extremely snappy. While it doesn't have muzzle rise since its a toy it definitely feels amazing. The slide release feels like the real glock but a little weaker maybe. Second the new nozzle and gas route is definitely a plus. People trash talk it saying it's to suck money out your wallet being incompatible but let me tell you its amazing. Who thought we could make a mag that lasts up to six full mags on a hot day. This gun likes propane in the cold just so you know and even in 40 degree weather i haven't had a malfunction hell i get 2 mags worth of bbs on one fill. As long as you top off your mags it will fire the whole thing and lock back though it has a lot of gas cooldown. I don't know how to explain it but the mag gets cold really fast though it isn't really a problem ive had ice form around the striker valve but it'd just keep going. It also obviously has the rmr slide attachment that i sadly haven't put to use but the gun includes suppressor height sights that i prefer aesthetics wise and weirdly i like them more than the normal irons that come on the gun. Overall i really like this gun if you couldn't tell though only buy it on sale because it's constantly going on sale. Imo i think this is the best glock in the market rn i know surprising that its a we but seriously. This thing is just straight amazing and if you dont want to buy the sai blu rmr one you should check out the vx7/vx9 rmr or the new we mos series as its the same system for a lot cheaper, but not the same beauty. Seriously this is good just wish the barrel wasn't scratched though again i'd scratch overtime anyways. "Pros:
-Accepts both gas and CO2
-Feels great in the hand, and all controls are easily accessible for any hand size
-Good magazine capacity with the included mags
-Magazines and holsters are readily available
-Mostly polymer, very lightweight (Up to preference)
-The base plate of the CO2 mag is very flimsy, if you drop it onto any hard surface it will likely break, which means you must be very careful while reloading.
Does what itâ€™s supposed to do. It functions well as a CQB sidearm out of the box. Without modding, you should be able to hit people reliably at up to about 50 feet. Because of the issue I mentioned with the magazine base plate, I canâ€™t give it 5 stars, but it is a solid gun nonetheless and thereâ€™s no objective reason to avoid buying it besides that. However, if youâ€™re a Glock enthusiast looking for an airsoft replica thatâ€™s as faithful to the real firearm as possible, I recommend buying the Umarex Glock 18C over this.
