The out of battery safety lever will catch on the button even if you modify the trigger disconnect.

Someone had a G18 (select-fire G17) at the range a while ago. It was pretty cool, but I've since seen much more amusing full-auto gear. I wouldn't even try it with an XD, considering the major penalties involved if/when I got busted.

That's an awesome pistole. No wonder the shooter has that Al Queda looking face cover on. Seriously pissed off BATFE agents like to find guys like that. Still, I wish I had one hid back somewhere for a rainy day.

Why does the link take me to google?
Don't know, the link took me to the correct place. Cool video.
BTW, I daresay most any "semi"auto can be made "full" auto, or even select fire, given sufficient desire and mechanical skill and ability. But the time in "Club Fed" just isn't worth it!!

The question is why would you want to do that? Not worth the prison time. It is nothing new, BTW, many other pistols are/were made in full auto models. I have so far seen full auto versions of the HK VP70, CZ-75 and the Beretta 92.

Im not a master gunsmith or anything, but doesnt garage converting your hand gun make it empty the entire magazine? no control of the bursts?

Thats eastern block thinking. 1 well aimed shot = 30 rounds in the general direction. I say skill is more valuable than spray and pray. :shock:

In the case of the XD, its not a matter of just filing down the sear (which is how most garage conversions I've seen were done), instead there are a few other small items that have to be reworked and modified. I suppose it could be done from a mechanical standpoint and with enough 'tweaking' but I'm with the other folks, even experimenting isn't worth the time in Uncle Sam's Bed and Breakfast. :)

That video has been around awhile. A friend of mine who is a deputy in Franklin County, PA told me that that video was for police use only. The individual shooting is a gang member. I told him, with the internet, nothing is police use only. :twisted:

If you could it ain't worth the prison time your gonna get when you get caught with it.
A gun it is what it is made for. Buy "legally" so we can keep guns legal! I want fully autos but I can't so I don't want to ruin anything else. Happy shooting!:D

As for the first question, it depends on how much tweaking you do. Done incorrectly, the trigger can become very inconsistant and cause the gun to empty.

I agree very much that those kinds of weapons are all but useless. Spray and pray is for paintballers, not real world operators.

Most everyone on this forum shoot regularly and most have at least tried double and triple taps and know just how many rounds are on target. This gun lacks even what control you have doing a double tap so basically you dump a full magazine in about a second. Now you're standing with an empty gun and a really pi**ed off adversary explain the logic in that. I applaud those of you who pointed out that this type of modification is illegal and unwise to attempt. But it is still scary to think that there are people with guns that still think they are a toy to play with and that something like this would be fun to try. :mad:

Sorry! I don't have many buttons but this just pushed one of the big ones. :oops: I need to go take a pill and fondle my guns for a while....

It's really simple to convert a Glock to f.a., and you do have control of the bursts. (Not that I'm suggesting doing something illegal) G18s aren't illegal for everybody. FWIW a G18 isn't just a "converted" G17. Close, but not a true conversion.

um... both those links take me to a place with the title "Death Videos, Extreme Porn & Gore Movies - Brutal and Nasty Videos on ..."
And the content is pretty appropriate to that title.
