What did that run you? How available are selector switches for Glocks?

I don't understand the legality of this since the sear components are not serialized on a handgun. How can you put it on a 3rd Generation (read: post ban) handgun?

Probably because he is an FFL/SOT & its a post sample machinegun.

Looks like its a nicely done conversion.

The auto sear is serial numbered, I have one on my G20 as well. I bought these through my department and they will have to remain with the department when I get a good job like Dcortez. The sear works like the AR15 drop in auto sear (dias), whatever rifle it is installed on becomes the machine gun, these sears are multi Glock so that will work on any Glock.

So wait, you have a post-ban machine gun sear registered to the department installed on your personal firearms? How exactly does that work out legally.

The DIAS is the machinegun. It is the registered item.

In this case, the DIAS is owned and registered to the police department that the O/C works for and is a post 1986 machinegun.

The O/P is authorized to possess the DIAS by the department and is also authorized by the department (In writing I hope) to install the DIAS on his personal weapon.

Many agencies do this for their officers. The officer "buys' the NFA item but the owner of record is the agency. As long as the officer is employed by the agency, he/ she can legally possess the controlled item.

One Central TX agency that I know of allowed several officers (many years ago) to buy Ruger AC-556's under the agency umbrella. The agreement was when the officer left their employment, they had to "sell" it to another officer for no higher than the original purchase price. Find a machinegun these days for $350.

Another agency in West Tx did a similar thing some years back, but did not exercise much control over the NFA items. A new Sheriff was sworn in and started checking the records. Found several NFA items unaccounted for. Called ATF for assistance. Several MG's retrieved from former officers and (allegedly) a DPS trooper who had transferred several hundred miles away.

I have fired a few Glocks with these on. Fun toys. My wife and son really liked them, too.

No reason in the world we shouldn't be able to own one of these like any other gun.
