The Glock 18 is a pistol produced and manufactured by Glock of Austria. The G18 is very similar to the Glock 17 however on the slide has a fire selector switch that enables the pistol to fire in fully automatic or semi-automatic modes.

Overview

Rotating the switch to the top switches the pistol to semi automatic mode, however rotating the switch to the bottom allows for fully automatic mode.

The Glock 18 has an identical appearance to the Glock 17, however the g18 has the addition of the fire selector. Due to the fully automatic mode, the internal infrastructure of the Glock 18 is markedly different from the Glock 17, and the parts are not interchangeable. This was purposefully performed by Glock in order to ensure that the Glock 17 was not a semi automatic version of the Glock 18, however the two would be considered separate and distinct pistols.

Legality

Some jurisdictions and countries have laws that place unique and special restrictions on semi-automatic variants of fully automatic weapons, and if the Glock 18 were to be essentially identical to a Glock 17, the Glock 17 would fall within the purview of those laws and be unavailable in those countries and jurisdictions.

The Glock 18 is in the United States an exclusively law enforcement use pistol that utilizes standard Glock 17 magazines, holding either 17 or 19 rounds. The G18 can be used with special 31 or 33-round extended magazines, however this configuration is less common. There have been known to be a few Glock 18s exclusively and privately owned in accordance with the National Firearms Act.

Uzi and Mac10

The uzi and mac10 are both really cheap and easy to get. Lots of terrorists use them for that reason unfortunatly.

In semi-auto mode it is a pretty decent little gun, but switch it over to fully-auto and yeah it's fun, but it's also pretty inaccurate.

Recoil

I've only seen videos, but the recoil on the fully auto mode looks like it's a little too much to handle affectivly.

Glock 18

Guys got to shoot one years ago in the basement range of Glock corporate. The 18 is very good and accurate on full auto BUT it is meant to be shot in 3 round bursts which takes practice. However cool it looks to shoot full auto, youre going to miss everything after the 3rd round just as you will with an M-16/4, or any machine gun (if your not using a T&E). It looks cool in the movies but its a worthless bullet waster in real life.

Also do your homework. UZI used to come in 3 sizes and one looked like the Glock. They also made the one that everyone recognizes and then there was a larger one a little smaller than the M-4.

BTW MAC-10s are also another weapon only good for the movies. Very inaccurate and uses a lot of ammo. Good only for very close in situations to spray and prey.
