Glock Switch A relatively simple, albeit illegal, device that allows a conventional semi-automatic Glock pistol to function as a fully automatic firearm. The switch is classified as a machine gun under federal law.
GLOCK G18 and G18C – Switch from semi-automatic to full-automatic firing mode with the fire selector.
Hussein, bedraggled and bereft, was armed with one of the rarest of handguns: the Glock 18, the full auto Glock. In February 1980 the Austrian Army issued a requirement for a new handgun.
On a website, the company advertised the “ Glock Auto Switch,” saying the product would convert all models of Glock pistols to “Full Auto.” The device operates by applying force to the trigger bar to prevent it from limiting the weapon to firing only one round each time the trigger is depressed.
3 round burst is only legal if you have the gun registered with the Feds as a full auto firearm. There is the binary firing system that the Feds have decided is legal. It shoots once on the trigger pull and once on the release of the trigger.
One of the things they brought to the range was a G19 equipped with a proprietary giggle switch. The switch allows the shooter to swap from semi-auto fire to full auto with a cross-bolt type switch.
The Glock 18 is Illegal in the United States The Glock 18 is a fully-sized automatic pistol. It fires 9mm; however, it is capable of firing 1200 rounds per minute. This firing rate is the biggest reason why the Glock 18 is illegal in the United States.

Glock: “It is ok to dry fire your Glock pistol, but in situations where the pistol will be subjected to continuous sessions of dry firing, the use of a snap cap or dummy round is recommended.” SIG: “It is safe to dry – fire our center fire pistols. You would want to use a snap cap or plug if extensive dry – firing is done.
When you train with the gun and one in the chamber or not, the answer is no. Carrying your self defense weapon, be it concealed carry or open carry, should be as ready as the law allows.
In general Glocks are decent about not jamming but like any gun they do have a few things that will make them jam and common failure points. But it’s not a bad gun, it’s just nothing special, or at least not anymore. There are now plenty of handguns that do what Glocks do with about the same reliability.
