Watched "Locked & Loaded" hosted by Lee Ermey on the History Channel last night. Crazy Glock 18 with a 33 round 9mm mag, 1100-1200 rounds/min! :eek:
Mag was almost as long as his forearm!

I was given an opportunity to photograph a genuine Glock 18C a couple years ago. It is owned by Glock.

A couple weeks after I took the photos, I was given an opportunity to put 250 rounds through it. What an experience. :43:

I fired a Glock 18 many times. My agency has several. They are great! The advantage is that You can carry it just like a normal Glock 17. It only takes seconds to put on a stock and a 33 round magazine and turn on the switch. And seconds to reverse it back.

Before anybody gets a bad idea, none of the G18 parts fit on a 17, or any other title 1 Glock.

Did you do something wrong on your G17?

Nope.

I restrict my NFA activities to those of the legal type.

I have had both apart, and know what Glock did to make sure no mix-n-match monkey business takes place.

B Strong, you wrote:I have had both apart, and know what Glock did to make sure no mix-n-match monkey business takes place.Indeed. For example, the rails on the frame, which engage the slide, are at a different height (higher), and the corresponding grooves on the slide are also cut differently to accommodate the higher frame rails. This ensures that a Glock 18 slide will not fit on a Glock 17 frame, and vice versa.

G18s have the happy switch on the left side-per Lunde, do you see that extra bump on the rear of the slide? It's modified, despite what the title says. There's actually a kit to make your standard Glock full auto...but that's confidential.

Yeah I saw the little hump, I always heard about people modding their g17s. Here is one I found of a g19 full auto

I do believe that a permanent mod needs to be made to the frame to get the plate to work and when that happens that gun is now a M.G.

The actual method for how the Glocks can be made to go full auto is fairly simple. One of the pics shows how it's done. Outside of trigger manipulation, I don't see how a Glock can be modified to do 3 shot bursts instead of FA. Glock made some changes to the model 18 slide & frame so that it's slide (where all the fun parts are) will not interchange with any other Glock Frame. The outside dimensions are the same as a G17, so it'll fit in any G17/22 holster. Personally, I think it's a great way to be able to arm someone with a FA tool that looks "normal".

Hows the accuracy for the Glock 18 in full auto without the stock mod? Is the recoil manageable w/o the stock? Looks fun for sure. :hurray:

That's all I know for sure... the rest? Not a clue. Haven't shot one yet... but I'd love to be able to... just to find out the rest!

The reason they made the G18 was for Austria's secret service so they could have FA in a regular package. Who cares it's very cool to say the least.

Recoil is easily manageable by an experienced shooter. When my agency switched over to Glocks, Glock USA sent an instructor to put rangemasters through a Glock Rangemaster and Armorer course. He brought a G18 for us to try - what a nice guy! Using short bursts, it was no problem to hold all shots in the torso at 7 yards. It works because you expect it... unlike a malfunctioning semi-auto that tends to wind up pointing at the sky because you didn't expect the continued recoil.

Never could convince the Sheriff that we needed a few G18's in our armory, darn it... :(

It's not a bad idea, just an illegal action if taken. Full auto = good, very good!

There are a few different models. The one I tried (in another country) slipped right on without any modifications. Not too bad on a G17, slightly harder to control on a G26...

glock selector. my neighbor in the philippines is a gun smith and sells tons of selectors over there. just replace the glock back plate with it, then rock and roll. push of the button from semi to full auto. :cool: works with all glock models.

Once you've put a few magazines through the pistol, it's easy to control and shoot reasonably well.
