Any one see the ad for this in Shotgun News????


Now, the ad and web page says it's legal. But, you're taking a pistol (imported pistol) and turning it into a rifle. Granted, it's like the 1911 kit, but I thought you couldn't 'manufacture' a rifle from imported parts???? Does this rule apply to a Glock pistol to rifle conversion????

Any takers? Or should I post on Glocktalk instead???


PS - Personally, I'd like a 357 Sig kit...I have a Sub 40.

yes its legal becouse in its configuration it would still be importable

Okay, I think I get it. It's a rifle that has the magazine in the grip??? and not outside?

As long as it's legal.....(for some reason, I think it might not be in California...)

I have seen the stocks in other catalogs, but I have never seen the long barrel. NOT ME!!! I will stick with my Glock pistol just the way it is.

Why have a stock and a longer barrel if you're not going to increase the sight radius? Was this contraption invented with the Glock 18 in mind?

That barrel has to be just for show (and legal purposes). There's no way you could get a one piece 16 inch barrel through the slide of a glock. Must be a threaded barrel with a screw on attachment. This is like the "barrel extention" on the Tec 9s, totally useless. Unless of course, I am wrong and there is some way to get uniform rifling through a threaded barrel and a screw on attachment.

That's ugly :o

Yes it's legal. Just as a TC Contender can be a carbine, just remember, if you put the stock on but not the barrel, you have a Short Barreled Rifle and that is bad. Yes, it's a real barrel

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle! Shiver me timbers and blow me down while you're at it.

Here is another one by Mech Tech. This one actually replaces the glock slide.

I know of the Glock CCU one. Why this would interest me is the 357 Sig option. So far, no one offers a 357 Sig 'carbine'. If I get a Mech Tech CCU, it'll be for the G21 (45 ACP). But I don't see their product disapearing anytime soon, so I'll wait. Just wanted to get this out and get the 'word' on it.


The sight radius would be an important thing. Here's a pic of a 'soulution'.....

With the tactical mount under the gun, you can put a weaver type rail as in the pic and then install the barrel. An Optima 2000 or similar red dot system could be used for 'long range' shooting. Oh, they have a pic of the stock being used on an G18.

A full/semi assult pistol is very possible w/ this gun/setup. If you're an LE or have the right licences.... If you got a G22/31, get the select switch that replaces the plastic cover on the back of the slide and get a vertical forgrip installed on the tac/accessories rail, you'd have one mean looking gun (and use the Scherer 29 round mags).
