    Was reading an article in a Handgun magazine the other day and it talked about the G18, a true automatic. Had a switch at the back of the slide on the left hand side so you could switch from semi-auto to full-auto. I'm sure they're illegal in the U.S. but I'd never heard of it? Anyone else ever read anything about the G18? Makes me wonder what other kind of Glocks are sold in other countries.

    Some LE agencies have the 18. Was featured in Matrix Reloaded.

    There has always been some question as to whether the Glock in the video is a G18 or a modified G17. In addition, notice that the gun fails to load and fire all the rounds in the second mag.

    Either way it's still pretty cool. And you can't tell you wouldn't love to have one.

    In order for a civilian to legally own a machinegun, it needs to have been registered prior to the cutoff in 1986.

    If there are any registered G18's out there I'm sure that they are few and far between, and would fetch a HEFTY price.

    Most of us folks will have to settle for the Airsoft G18C. ;) They can be had for about $200 bucks

    The G18 didn't exist prior to the 86' cutoff, so there are no legal exampes in circulation. There are a few Beretta 93R;s out there but thats a different animal...

    I'm pretty positive that's not a G18. I first saw this clip a while back on a modification site. I think it's using one of these.

    axel.

    I held a G18 in my hand just one week ago : ) A collector here in Sweden got one. It was one of the first models, non-comp, no rails for laser/flashlights and a selector on the back left side of the slide.

    Retired, but not expired.
    We have a few G18's and they will frequently limp wrist jam when trying to squirt a whole magazine out, especially by first time G18er's. :)

    Besides the Glock 18 the only other Glocks that I know of which are not typically imported are the .380 Glocks. I think those model numbers are Glock 25 and Glock 28 and I the reason their not imported had to do with a point sytem in which the .380 did not get enough points.

    Sorry I found this on glockfaq.com. They are called BATF points and it is definatly the G25 and G28

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    What is the BATF points system and how does it affect Glocks?
    Many of the Glock's parts and sometimes the whole gun are dictated or limited by the BATF's system of "import points". To qualify for import a pistol must score 75 points based on the following system:

    Characteristic Points
    Length: for each 1/4" over 6" 1
    Forged steel frame 15
    Forged HTS alloy frame 20
    Unloaded weight w/mag (per oz.) 1
    .22 short and .25 auto 0
    .22 LR and 7.65mm to .380 auto 3
    9mm parabellum and over 10
    Locked breech mechanism 5
    Loaded chamber indicator 5
    Grip safety 3
    Magazine safety 5
    Firing pin block or lock 10
    External hammer 2
    Double action 10
    Drift adjustable target sight 5
    Click adjustable target sight 10
    Target grips 5
    Target trigger 2

    Changes and features made to Glocks to comply with the BATF rules:
    - all models are imported with a cheap click-adjustable rear sight that is replaced at the factory with the stock sight
    - target (grooved) trigger added to compacts & subcompacts
    - target grips added to all models (required for the subcompacts)
    - due to their caliber, .380 autos (G25 & G28) do not score enough points to be imported
