WORLD MARKET LEADERS JOIN FORCES : UMAREX RECEIVES GLOCK LICENSE
Founded in 1963, GLOCK has been setting the global standard for handguns with polymer frames for decades. UMAREX and GLOCK are two world market leaders meeting on equal terms, the best prerequisites for a successful partnership. UMAREX will in the future build the famous GLOCK pistols in the categories "Airguns" (4.5 mm / .177) and "Airsoft" (6 mm). GLOCK replicas will be distributed worldwide through sporting goods dealers, except in France and French territories. Umarex USA and the Elite Force Airsoft group of Umarex USA will distribute the world-leading GLOCK pistol replicas exclusively throughout North America. Distribution in the USA is expected to begin first quarter 2018. Particularly attractive for collectors, the license allows the replicas to carry the original markings and be marketed in authentic packaging.
The UMAREX Corporate Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of over-the-counter firearm replicas and the largest importer of airguns in Europe. Its range of products comprises guns for defense and leisure time as well as sporting arms, airsoft guns, steel goods and top quality LED lighting devices.
