Full Auto Glock & 298 rounds
Trying to Meltdown a Glock
A friend of ours trying to melt his full auto Glock
down at the Spring 2006 Knob Creek Shoot. Needless to
say the Glock still runs perfect today. You will also
see the first and only known 100 round Glock drum used
in this video.

This might interest you.
Wow thats insane!
Too cool. I was out shooting this weekend and someone nearby had two machine guns. This was out in the woods. Sounded pretty cool.
I want one.
I would have liked to see a target at the other end of the 100 rnd mag. It looked a bit awkward.
If he wanted to jam it, fire it next week without cleaning or lubing.
I'm now a believer in Glock. Amazing, simply amazing.
Wow, I've got a Glock 19. I love it. Wish mine could do that!!
Before I bought my Glock, a friend showed me some videos of a guy just being brutal with his trying to destroy it.
He packed it in sand & water, baby powder & water, etc. It jammed once or twice, he would sling the gunk out of it and it would go back to firing. He dropped it off his house, drug it behind his truck and even dropped it into a field from an airplane. It fired as it should. The H&K he was comparing it to failed early, during the "let's see what gunk we can pack it in" phase. The Glock never did.
Never take anything except a Gatling Gun to a Gatling Gun Fight!
All right! Thursday gun pr0n!
That ain't right...
That 90mm looked like a heck of a lot of fun.
Very nice minigun videos. I think it'd give Texas DPS the fits if I tried to mount one of those in the bed of my truck though...
I have two. One standard model 18 and one 18C compensated model. I want that 100rd mag, er 5 or 6 of them.
factor; I have not experienced any such events, nor have I heard of any in the local gunny community. However, I have a KKM Precision barrel in my G 21. That gun is remarkably accurate (it was so even with the factory barrel) and it will feed and function with any bullet design I care to load, even if the OAL is not quite uniform from round to round. As much as I really like my Model of 1911A1, if my butt was on the line and I had to carry for work related reasons, the Glock (preferably in a caliber of .40 or larger) would probably be my choice for a sidearm.
Nice Full auto Glock SBR.

He got into it with someone from ARFCOM.
I changed over to a KKM Precision barrel after 6000 rounds through the factory barrel (not because the factory barrel was worn, just because I liked the look of the KKM). The darn thing just "keeps on going". There is no noticeable wear on the slide runners. I like the idea of the Glock 36 but it would be nice if Glock actually made a full size, single stack gun out of it. That would be a good rival for the 1911A1.
pretty kewl. Of course I hate seeing someone piss away that much ammunition.
One thing I learned about full-auto in the few times I've dabbled is that you might as well sign your paycheck over to Cheaper Than Dirt. We had a landowner allow an MP-5 course to be held on his land for free one time "as long as you leave the brass." He got a whole lot of brass...
Set yourself up with a Dillon. I keep hoping my wife, inlaws, or parents will come through for me and get me a nice little 550B. They've even got an automatic case feed for the 550 now. Heavy shooters can make up their costs pretty quickly compared to buying off the shelf.
LOL - you're right. I have a single-lever RCBS at the moment. I can crank out a box of pistol ammo in what, about three weeks?
Same here. I've got it down so that I can do about 250 a weekend if the Honey-do list allows. Considering I burn through an average of 400+ on a 3 hour trip to the range, with only revolvers/lever-action/semi-auto weapons, a full auto would necessitate a better reload rig.
fun downloading pleasure for after work!
Were it not for NFA'34 and other such legislation, I might enjoy having a full-auto .22LR. Not sure anyone even makes such a thing, though.
Clean? Lube? After only 298 rounds? You gotta be kidding, it's a Glock!
Seriously, I clean mine after every visit to the range. But, I have buddies that only clean theirs before major matches, and literally shoot thousands of rounds between cleaning.
holy cats! L0L
Ive seen case blowouts in glocks kinda skeery. but I found out they where not factory loads
Funny you should mention that. I downloaded all the videos. I'm going to make a gun p0rn cd with these and the metal storm videos for the boss.
I'll use it as a bribe to get him to let FR thru the firewall again.
Oh I don't know, I once saw a vintage jeep with a mount on Central in Dallas. The mount was shiny like it had seen recent use. As long as you'd paid the $200 tax, the gun would be perfectly legal, and the local troopers would soon know who you where and not worry about you. Unless you tried to hold up a bank with the thing or something.
There's a company out there that will sell you a remotely operated mount that raises up through the roof of an SUV, or from the bed of a truck. For "Executive protection", but don't you and yours deserve just as much protection in certain areas?

Believe it not, I have them bookmarked:
One day when I'm rich....
My Mod 20 remains my favorite "trouble's coming" pistol. Buy me enough time to get to a rifle or a shotgun.
Can you be a little more specific about the occurence? I've never seen anything of the kind with a Glock. Both myself and my brother own Glocks in .40 and 9mm and have yet to see anything but flawless action with ours and anybody shooting Glocks(well, aside from a limp wrister or two).
The ramp on a glock is a bit more opened up than on a normal semiauto, this assists in jam free operation.
However removing the extra material at the mouth of the chamber
leaves some of the bullet casing unsuported by the chamber.
This is ok for factory loads but may result in the unsupported section of the bullrt case "blowing out" or rupturing when using hot handloaded ammo.
I am uncertain if P+ ammo would result in the same situation.
The glocks a fine weapon but is susceptable to this condition. Ive seen it happen
Have and do shoot +p here. No problems. As long as hand loads are recipied and built right, headspaced, etc., there should be no problems.
ps-I've read the Glockkb faq on gunzone as well prior to buying my first handgun. After enough poking around, I came to the conclusion that for one reason or another any gun can kb made by *any* manufacturor. Struck me more as anti-Gl*ck crowd scare tactics after a while. I've still yet to talk to *one* shooter or see *one* incident of a kb on a Glock of any model.
"Coined by firearms reporter Dean Speir, a kB! (or kaBoom!) is the term used to describe the explosive malfunction of a firearm, with usually very costly, if not deadly, results. Glock pistol kB's usually damage the firearm, with minor injury to the shooter.
Controversy arose over Glock's safety standards when multiple cases of explosive malfunction occurred in Glock pistols sold to police departments in the United States. Upon pulling the trigger, the cartridge case would rupture and cause an explosion that would tear apart the gun and often send shrapnel into the shooter's face.
The cause of this malfunction was traced to issues with a purposely oversized (loose), and partially unsupported chamber in Glock's pistols chambered in .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .357 SIG, and 10mm. The chamber lacks full support in the rear by the feed ramp in order to facilitate feed reliability. The lack of support in the chamber, usually combined with lead bullets, reloaded, or +P (high pressure) ammunition, would cause the case to fail. The subsequent rapid expansion of gas into the chamber caused the pistols to fail, usually damaging the polymer frame and/or magazine.
Glock, in its own defense, says that in every manual that comes with their pistols there are instructions informing the shooter of the dangers of using non-factory rated ammunition, and that if the shooter uses factory loaded, jacketed ammuntion and makes sure to properly clean and care for their firearm, the firearm will function safely. Supporters also point out that kB!s occur in other firearms as well, particularly M1911 frame pistols. However, there continues to be controversy over the presence of an unsupported chamber, critics arguing that it is not necessary and is a liability for the company.
It has been purported that because of the the specific design of the polygonal rifling in the Glock, owners should not shoot non-jacketed lead ammunition in a Glock, since lead residue can quickly build up and cause a decreased bore diameter and therefore a dangerous over pressurization in the barrel and potentially create a structural failure or warping in the chamber of the barrel. You can notice a 'Bulge' in the fired case ejected from the Glock (even with Target loads)to see the result of the unsupported chamber.
Despite the controversy, Glock pistols still continue to be used by military and law enforcement agencies worldwide."
I forgot to mention that the handloads that were used when I saw the case ruptures were in fact lead 9mm.
I wouldnt call this a true kaboom. Only the case kaboomed. the pistol sustained no damage othe than the case not being extracted and the magazine being blackened
Thats a cool blog. Lots and lots of good links off of it. Thanks for posting that.
I've yet to see a Glock 17 in 9mm kB. However, the associated problem of *nosedive* jams [NOT *stovepipe* jams, usually caused by a limp hold on the gun] in the .40 S&W versions of the Glock have been so widespread that the Indiana State Police have discontinued their use of the >40 caliber Glocks, switching back to the 9mm Glock 17 and 19.
My suspicion: that this is in part a problem related to bullet shape and overall dimension of the loaded cartridge, plus some recent dimensional changes of internals by the manufacturer. I've traded my old Glock 17 to an unhappy sheriff's deputy who no longer has faith in his department-issued .40 Glock 22, and has the option to carry a personally-owned 9mm or .40 instead. And one of his fellow deputies similarly wishes to dump his .40 Glock, and I may pick it up and see if I can find out just what the problem...and maybe the resulting solution...is all about. But I think my first step will be a drop-in .357 SIG barrel.
I hope you read the discussions in the forums at Glock Talk as well.
My limited experience [around 3000 rounds] suggests that the 18C is indeed the way to go. The custom tower for the Beta-C MP5 magazine is a preproduction item [or was] but sufficient nosing around at the subguns.com website will put you in touch with the developer.
I have little doubt in the ability of the Glock 18 to reliably chat away at full-tilt, but the drum magazine, which needs to be scrupulously lublicated with the graphite included with the drum in its ammo pouch, is probably the weak link of the system. Not to worry: the high capacity 33-round Glock 18 magazines are stone reliable, and reasonably cheap, in the $20-$30 range, now that the infringement of the high-cap magazine ban is hopefully forever in the past.
