In certain situations a select fire sidearm might be warranted . Typically guns like the Glock 18C would fill this role. Unfortunately they are a bit tricky to get sometimes and certainly are more expensive.

A pretty bright fellow came up with an aftermarket sear that can convert any glock to select fire in only a couple of minutes. All the while saving departments and agencies hundreds of dollars when compared to purchasing the 18C.

During demos side by side with the glock 18c this device worked flawlessly. Cyclic rate was the same, it worked with every Glock model we put it on, from the full size model to the compacts.

If your department has a tactical team that's using Glocks and is looking for a substantial "back up" weapon to their subguns, it's something to consider. Also for diplomatic protection where concealability is an issue, this might do the trick. One of the other selling points they push was for small departments who could buy subguns, but I don't agree. A $600 sear, $400 Glock and a $100 shoulder stock is right at the price for an MP5 or UMP..from an image perspective maybe it's a neat idea but from a cost perspective, departments can buy new subguns for the price of this system.

This device can only be owned by departments military (as an organization) and dealers with a demo letter from law enforcement.
The sear is considered to be a machine gun unto itself. Since there is a law against civilians owning any new machine guns made after May 1986, a civilian could not own this device nor could he or she convert any of their guns into machine guns.

As a manufacturer of firearms that pays a special occupation tax (SOT) to be able to build machine guns and suppressors and other NFA items, we can own them.

SO your department could own it, they could issue it to you for duty, but you couldn't own one for yourself.

Sweet, do you need a machine gun license for that?

It's certainly not for everyone...and I don't buy the "it's as good as a subgun" sales pitch but it probably has a place in protective services or when linked up to something like the corner shot.
