    Will be moving to Mexico soon. I got the 3rd gen. G17C and found a website that offers a little back piece that will make any GLOCK fully auto for $70. I emailed them to find out whether or not they will ship to Mexico but they are unsure of the laws/regulations. Does anyone know anything about this subject?

    If you want to check out the A.F.S (Automatic Firing System) here is the link: http://www.glockuser.com/AFS/index.html

    P.S. I understand the penalties for owning in the U.S

    Ummmmmmmm...check the laws in Mexico. Unless their laws have change, it is next to impossible to own a firearm in Mexico. You might find youeself in the Mexican Slammer.

    I'm not sure if Mexico is one of the countries that do not allow civilians to carry firearms in military calibers. That is why .380, 38 Special, .38 Super, 9 x 21, 9 x 23, .40 S & W are quite popular in those countries. Strange laws.

    The best thing you could do is to go to the Mexican Embassy or any of its consulates and inquire about fireams laws there.

    Please refer to Mexico's Ley Federal de Armas de Fuego y Explosivos
    (relevant sections reproduced below, with a number of emphases in red)

    Such info presented, perhaps this thread should die NOW,
    or at least proceed carefully --if that's still possible at this point
    (the link to the restricted-item supplier is the dealbreaker here!).
    We don't want to be seen as encouraging/enabling illegal activity.
