Why cant civilians buy Glock 25/28s? If I could find one for sale, would it be legal to buy it?
Look up "The Gun Control Act of 1968."
And before you suggest they be made in Smyrna, think for a minute. If you are 500,00 units behind in production, would you stop production and re-tool for 380"s?
Now, would you really want a 380 the exact same size as a G26 or a G19?
Not enough import points for the Glock 25/28 to come into the U.S.
Exactly - I believe their sole appeal is that they are nearly impossible to get here. Meaning once that were not the case the only attraction would be gone, except for someone who collects Glocks.
They are made for the countries where civilians cannot own a firearm that uses a military caliber ammo.
In Mexico, Brazil and several other countries a civilian cannot own a 9mm so Glcok makes a .380 for them.
In Italy civilians cannot own a 9mmx19 so various companies chamber their 9mmx19 pistols in 9mmx21 with the same overall length bullet as the 9mmx19.
We REALLY need to have stickies on topics like this.
Once a month, without fail.... "why can't I buy a 25/28".
and the always infamous Glock .22LR.
ETA: I also want a Glock 25/28 because I can't have one. But bet your last dollar that I would not buy one once made available here.
The fact we can't get them is just an example of how stupid our gun control laws are.
Lol at this post, only cops can purchase them.
A Glocksky in 9x18 Makarov would be interesting. I wonder if it would be better as locked-breech or blow-back. I suspect a conversion barrel for a standard 9mm glock would be the way to go, but perhaps with a reduced power recoil spring. Surely someone has done this, right?
Bello, only law enforcement agencies may purchase G28's. Individual officers cannot purchase them unless the agency resells to them.
