A Glock ”going full auto” is a slang term used to describe a semi-automatic firearm that has been modified to fire continuously for as long as the trigger is held down. This modification is usually accomplished by replacing the factory trigger with an aftermarket one that has much less travel, or by installing an aftermarket auto sear. While it is technically possible to modify a Glock in this way, it is also illegal in most jurisdictions. Doing so would void your warranty and could potentially get you into trouble with the law. Glock full auto Conversion kits are available but we do not recommend them.

Several factors can cause a Glock to fire in full auto:

  • One is the use of an aftermarket slide that has been modified to allow full auto.
  • Another is the installation of an aftermarket trigger that also allows for full auto.
  • Lastly, if the gun has been fitted with an aftermarket magazine release, this can also cause the gun to fire in full auto.

All of these modifications are fairly easy to do and there are instructions available online on how to do them.

While some people may think that making these kinds of modifications to a Glock is cool, it’s illegal in many places. That’s because when a gun is fired in full auto, it can spray bullets all over the place and this can be extremely dangerous. In addition, full auto guns are also much louder than semi-auto guns and this can cause problems for the shooter and those around them.

If you’re thinking about making any of these modifications to your Glock, it’s important to check the laws in your area first. It’s also important to remember that these kinds of modifications can void your warranty and could potentially get you into trouble with the law. So, if you’re not sure about something, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and consult with a professional before making any permanent changes to your gun.

There are a couple of different ways that a Glock can go full auto:
The first is if the trigger group has been modified to include an auto sear. This is a little piece of metal that, when the trigger is pulled, releases the sear and allows the gun to fire fully automatically.
The second way that a Glock can go full auto is if it has been equipped with a slide fire device. This device attaches to the gun and allows the shooter to fire continuously simply by holding down the trigger.
Some people have even been able to rig up their Glocks to fire using an electrical switch, though this is not recommended!

A Glock can go full auto for several reasons. Usually, it’s because the gun has been rigged to do so, or because the firing pin is damaged. If a gun is fired too close to someone’s head, for example, the concussion can cause the firing pin to break. Glock has a special setting on some of their guns that allows them to fire in fully automatic mode; this is usually only done by law enforcement or military personnel (best shooting military gear).

A Glock can go full auto because of several reasons.
Typically, it is because the gun has been modified to fire in fully automatic mode, or because the gun has a hair-trigger that makes it easier for the user to fire off multiple rounds at a time.
Sometimes, a full-auto Glock might be caused by an ammunition problem, such as using faulty ammo or using an incompatible type of ammo in the gun. Whatever the reason, if you have a Glock that goes full auto, it’s important to get it checked out by a professional to make sure that it is safe to use.
