It seems that there are some really creative gunsmith's out there.
The real question is did BATFE know about his modifications?
I'm not sure I'd want to post a video of a machinepistol on "youtube", knowing that the Feds were going to be watching.
I'm sure they were knocking on his door within a few days of this video being posted.
The double cylinder magazine was pretty cool though.
I believe that the model 18 Glock is full Auto pistol thus would have to be registered as such. Anyone who is stupid enough to modify a semi auto into a full auto without the PERMISSION of the BATFE deservises the many years that he will serve in some hell hole prision.
I'll probably make an error or 2, but here is the basic rundown on full autos:
Its a class 3 firearm, being full auto. Basically any full auto made after 1986 is not legal for civilian ownership. I don't think there were any Glock 18s back then. The only 18s legally in this country would be those purchased by Police agencies, Military, or class 3 dealer samples. The samples can not be sold or transfered, but they can be taken to the range and fired. I expect the gun in the video is probably a dealer sample.
A class 3 gun made before the sunset date can legally be bought and sold between civilians, there is a 1 time $200 ATF tax for the transfer. It can be a long and difficult process, especially if the police in your area are against private ownership of full auto guns. They are expensive as well, for example an M16 in excellent condition is a +/- $15,000 rifle these days. There are also some laws that pertain to owning a full auto. You can't just walk in and buy 1, you have to get the paperwork all filled out and signed off, and it can take months between buying the gun and actually bringing the gun home with you.
