    Has anyone on here through their travels or connections even handled or fired the Glock that comes in .380 that isnt imported into the US? I am just curious about it.

    Alot of guys (including myself) like the idea of owning one because you can not buy them in the US. You always want what you cant have, right? At least I do....

    I don't want to carry it, I just want to add one to the collection since it is probably the rarest model.

    I shot one while working and visiting family in Poland, nothing special just a same old 19,23,32,38 sized glock with a lot less recoil.

    Years ago, a LE Bulletin came about a back plate that could be snapped into place and make a G17 Full Auto like the G18. I wanted that also.

    But I thought all the guys here who have never even seen one in person swore that they had more perceived recoil due to the blowback action instead of a locked breech action.

    It is also funny that the OP asked if anyone had handled one while traveling outside the USA but the first couple of posts were telling him how it isn't imported to the USA and is pointless.

    There are a couple of G25 videos on YouTube from Mexican shooters. They appear to have little to no recoil. I want one as well, ignoring those who tell me it's worthless. A collector's item is never worthless. By the way, according to Patrick Sweeney's Glock book, there are fewer G25s in the U.S. than G18s.

    Become of cop, or better yet, a police chief. Or a federal (LE) agent.

    Ok we all know why G18 cant be sold surplus,post 86 machine gun.
    however would it not be possible to buy a used G25/28 from a party such as a LEO who owns it legally but no longer wants it?
    Or because it is not possible for a civilian to buy normally does he have to turn it in to the atf or some such agency?

    This is as close any I think anyone will get to a .380 Glock in the U.S., unless they're a LEO who bought it on Department Letterhead........a Diamondback DB380.

    My pair of Diamondback DB380's-

    What is the price for one of those?

    I'm holding off on getting a 380 until the ammo is available.

    A LEO can't buy one on dept. letter head. Only law enforcement agencies can buy them. If it were as easy as just having the letter head, I'm sure there would be a few floating around.

    Depends on where ya get them; I paid $450 for my first one, because I REALLY, REALLY wanted one, and the only place that had them locally wanted $450. For my second one, I ordered it from GunsAmerica, from Florida Gun Exchange for $360. The MSRP is around $430 or so. They're great little guns!

    GunsAmerica has a few listed for $360-$380 or so.

    OH! Gotcha. I thought it was Dept Letterhead. That makes sense, actually. I wonder if any LE Agencies in the U.S. even bother with the Glock 28? I just don't see the purpose of them in the U.S, other than collectors......in other countries like Italy and such, I understand, as they can't have MIL calibers.
