I haven't seen this one before, no use to me unless it's forward firing.
But interesting and realistic all the same.
KEI also sells flashhiders at a great price, nice upgrade for the jackal.

There was a video on youtube of a guy who had converted a Shoei MP44 to 9mm blank, anyone have more info on that?

New Ruger and other info

Post  donny039 on Sun Feb 03, 2008 6:42 pm

This is a brand new item being manufactured by Umarex, top venting though.

I was offered a chance to be main importer for Umarex 10 years+ ago but Umarex required a high of a minimum purchase so I passed. Maxsell picked up the Umarex contract a few years back, but now for 2008 things are changing as Maxsell will no longer be the only company importing Umarex blank guns, Umarex USA, my company and several other companies will also be importing these products.

I am planning to submit a front venting sample sometime this month along with several other samples of top venting models, of a new Turkish company which so far is the only manufacturer willing to try and go the distance with regards to making modifications to help ensure front venting approval/classification as non-gun; no threading to allow flare cups, a metal end cap that would not only prevent flares from being fired it would also prevent a muzzle loading fire from being done.

I think when and if the front vent model sample is approved, it will really open the door for front vent models here in the USA, everyone will want want front venters and if one company is selling front venters and the other companies are not then obviously the other companies would be forced to also get front vent models approved or loose out on the USA business.

Thanks for the info guys!

PitFighter, which attachments are you referring to? Any pictures of one on the Jackal?

There's a couple new items up there on the Maxsell site- interesting. Are all the ones with S&W trademarks Umarex, I assume?

I've seen both Umarex and Voltran Echols (the Jackal) pop up on the Sportsman's Guide as well, which can be cheaper... with the guide gear member's price the Jackal there is about $230, lowest I've seen. Too bad I already have one in black...

We'll see how the refitted Jackal works, it will be put through it's paces over the next few weeks. It's the only "pot metal" gun on the show, and this will be a rough one, so it may not come out in one piece.
I may have some spare parts for sale at the end of the picture, ha.
rented a blank adapted 9mm Broomhandle Mauser for the first time, it's supposed to cycle great, always wanted to use one after watching the shoot-out in the Church and fields at the beginning of Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, one of my all time favorites.
