    What are some companies that make the auto conversion/switch thingy for Glocks and who makes the best one, or at the very least what are some of the pros and cons of them.

    Thankyou in advance.

    They are useless because you can't have one unless you plan on running a complicated business.

    I make one version of the Post Sample Switch of which you speak that is removable. Plain and simple there are no pros or cons. They just work and I'll gladly sell you one if you supply me with a FFL/SOT and Police Demo Letter.

    Uziforme does a side slide selector conversion but then the slide becomes the Post Sample and I'm sure provided the above mentioned paperwork he would do one for you also.

    John, Is it Full and semi? or is there a burst Option? Something like Full, 3 burst, semi

    Also what is the expected lifespan if such a device?

    Thankyou.

    John, it seems that your system requires the machining of the slide. Is that the case? I have not examined these systems, hence all my questions, but I thought that at least some of them were drop in units. If that is the case what makes your unit better if in fact it does require machining of the slide and other systems dont.

    John@JCDLESales,

    Does your device have different rate of fire than the original G18? I have been fortunate to play with a G18 while I was at FLETC (GA)years ago.

    Glockdude same rate of fire as an 18 cyclic rate is dependent on the slide so with an additional Oz.of metal for the device it might be 10 RPM slower if at all. I would like to try one out of composit material when I get the time.

    Rabbi,
    Those pics look deceptive. It looks like the slide has been machined, but it is fact a projection sitting on top of the underside of the slide.
    The button just pushes it forward to engage, or allows it to move backwards a fraction so that it doesn't engage.
    They are very simple, but need to be precision made. Tolerances are important, or the gun will fire out of battery or not at all.
    Besides the G18-style machined mods...the others basically work one of 2 ways:
    Slide the new cover plate on, and the gun is FA only. or..
    Cover plate has a switch or knob selecting from FA to semi.
    They work well, but have seen the cheaper ones wear a bit from contact until they stopped working. Need to be properly hardened.
    The simplest ones are the FA-only ones, but nice to be able to select. They work really well on the .380's..but you don't get many of them there, right? Not enough points?

    I don't believe there is a burst conversion. The way these things work, I can't see how it could be done, but no doubt someone will come out with something or has already.
