Full Auto Glock 43

GY6 Vids gets a chance to play with a custom full auto Glock 43. The full auto Gock 43 was done by Battleground Firearms.

Andrew mentions that the G43 jumps quite a bit. When he first shoots it full auto he only managed one hit on target. Having shot a full auto Glock 17 and a real Glock 18C, the porting of the compensated version makes it much easier to control the muzzle climb on full auto glocks. Batttleground should have cut the slide and ported the barrel of their G43 to see if it would help. In the video Andrew shoots what looks to be a full auto Glock 17C. You can see the two parallel slots in the top of the slide. He prefers the Glock 17C full frame but he does not acknowledge the “accuracy” is due to the ports and not the size. Sure a bigger frame gun and longer barrel helps eat up recoil and muzzle climb, as seen when shooting a Glock 35 and Glock 22 back to back. Try it, you will see a significant difference in just the .82 inches of barrel length.

    Full auto and a 6-round mag seems kinda silly to me.

    OTOH, it’s not hurting me so as long as it’s making someone happy then I guess it’s cool.

      But with the Taran extensions you can get a full EIGHT rounds, just like certain other WWII-era/1950s machinepistols. 😀

        Oh, well in that case I retract my statement :-p

    OMG, I want to go play at this fellers house, that looked like sooo much fun!

  • Around 16 years ago, a fellow by the handle of Sickboy used to post QuickTime videos of his various Glock models that had been converted with G18-style parts. His G26 video clip looked like someone had taken a handful of empty cases and tossed them in the air all at once.

    In my experience, the G42 has significantly less recoil than the G43; I’d be curious to see if a G42 would be any more controllable.

    You could buy Glock giggle switches in the German PX on KAIA and at the world’s most awesome store up in Mazar-i-sharif (where else can you buy gun parts, the entire Arc’teryx line and sex dice?). Controlling the G17 on auto was damned near impossible. You just couldn’t muscle it down… no way to get on the gun and own it. Don’t get me wrong, auto is almost always fun but I would really like to try again with a ported Glock.

    Im ashamed of myself for what I would do for a FA GLock.

    What I wouldn’t do for a G42 in FA to CC…
