Type: BB Rifle
Manufacturer: Gletcher
Model: Gletcher M1891 (Replica of Sawn Off Mosin Nagant """"Obrez"""")
Materials: Metal & plastic
Weight: 5.7 pounds (2.6kg)
Barrel: 5.5 inches, smooth bore (inner barrel)
Propulsion: CO2
Action: Bolt - single shot - single action
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 16 rounds (I was able to fit 17 rounds in the magazine)
FPS: 394fps (120m/s)

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher M1891 is single action only, the bolt cycle does most of the work setting up the loading of a BB into the chamber and pre-cocking the bolt spring. The take up is minimal and the release is about medium to light weight. The bolt snaps forward firmly and with a nice clanking sound, you can even feel the weight of it as it moves forward.

Accuracy: I did take the opportunity to do a quick pre-test with my Gletcher M1891. I shot several rounds through my Chronograph and averaged around 430 fps which is a bit higher than the claimed 394. I also shot a couple of magazines at a paper target standing 30 feet back using a semi rested position and was about to get a 1.75 inch 17 round group which is pretty good considering I found it kind of unusual to hold the Gletcher M1891 in this manner. The Gletcher M1891 does take some getting used to since you hold it like a rifle but do not rest it against your shoulder for stability.

 

Build Quality: The Gletcher M1891 is really well made, you can tell by its robust weight and how solid the action feels when you draw the bolt back and release it the first time. Everything that would be metal on the real Mosin Nagant is metal on the Gletcher M1891 including the full size dropout magazine that holds both the BB's and CO2. Yes the stock is imitation wood but in some ways it is harder than real wood and may actually hold up better. The finish looks great and I like the silver bolt, as with most electromagnetically coated finishes, the coating is not thick so it will wear off in the high spots fairly easily. Some touch up can solve this problem fairly easily.

Realism: I've never actually put my hands on a real steel Mosin Nagant Rifle but from the photos I viewed online, the Gletcher M1891looks really accurate in terms of being a BB replica. Of course the magazine has been adapted to fit CO2 and BB's but once placed in the gun it is nearly impossible to tell it from a real Mosin Nagant, or I should say a sawn off version of one. The weight of this rifle (5.7 pounds) gives it the feeling of genuineness. The only real giveaway is the imitation wood stock which looks pretty good considering. I have read online that a real Mosin Nagant stock can be adapted to fit the Gletcher M1891 so that would indicate that it is fairly true in size and construction to a real Mosin Nagant Rifle.

Pros:

  • Very Unique BB gun.
  • A piece of history you can shoot in your back yard.
  • Mostly all metal gun.
  • Nice heavy 5.7 pound weight to it.
  • Adjustable rear sight, at least for elevation.
  • Nice single action trigger.
  • Bolt action feels great and has a firm release.
  • Full size drop out metal magazine that holds both the BB's and the CO2.
  • More fps than claimed and decent accuracy, I expect to get lots of shots out of a single CO2 because of the magazine design.

Cons:

  • Stock is plastic but looks good considering.
  • No real way to adjust windage and the rear sight does wiggle a bit from side to side which could throw off the aim.
  • Electromagnetically coated finish may be prone to wear in the high spots.

Comments: The Gletcher M1891 is one of the most interesting BB guns I have had the opportunity to review, it has history, it's kind of a pistol and kind of a rifle at the same time and in this sawn off configuration it looks both old school and modern. I could almost see it being used as the perfect zombie gun ;) Getting away from its unique looks, the Gletcher M1891 performs very well, shooting a respectable 430 fps with accuracy that surprised me since I found it a bit hard to hold at first. There is something very gratifying about having to work a bot or lever or the hammer on a single action revolver that makes each shot just that much more precious! If you're looking for that ultimate eye catcher that people will have to take a second look at then this is the one for you.

This video is a walkthrough review of the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle. I show off this BB Replica close up from all angles and point out the mostly metal construction and go through the features and benefits of this very unique and historic replica BB rifle.

I do perform a pre-test where I shoot some rounds through my Chronograph and also take aim at a paper target from 30 feet back to see how accurate the Gletcher M1891 is.

A few years back I did a field test shooting review for the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off Mosin Nagant Rifle CO2 BB Gun but rather than my standard rested 30 foot paper target test I got out into the yard a bit and shot at some clay targets setup at a variety of ranges. I did this shooting freehand and unrested so the accuracy was a little left to be desired and actually determining how accurate the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off Mosin Nagant Rifle CO2 BB Gun was.

So I decided to revisit the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off Mosin Nagant Rifle CO2 BB Gun and retest the accuracy in my new Sea Can using paper targets setup 30 feet away using a rested and lated shooting position. I also redid my Chronograph velocity test siren my new Chromo setup is working so well.
