MCK Gen 2 is the most cost effective conversion kit in the world. It features the fastest and most efficient assembly/disassembly on the market. Improving accuracy dramatically up to 100 meters. The MCK Gen 2 comes in two main versions in terms of stock type:
A Glock switch functions by applying force to a semi-automatic pistol’s trigger bar to prevent it from limiting fire to one round of ammunition per trigger pull. It thus converts the weapon into a machine pistol capable of automatic fire. The device is roughly the size of a United States quarter, and when installed on the rear of the slide on a Glock pistol (replacing the slide cover plate), adds a selective fire switch; flipping the switch sets the weapon to full automatic mode.A handgun with a Glock switch attached fits the definition of a machine gun under United States federal law. The 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act made new machine guns illegal for civilians to own, banning “possession and transfer of new automatic firearms and parts that fire bullets without stopping once the trigger is depressed”, with the exception of machine guns manufactured prior to May 19, 1986. Those caught with a switch-modified handgun can be prosecuted federally. The penalties for possession of an unregistered machine gun in the United States are up to a $250,000 fine and prison sentences of up to 10 years.
In 2019, the ATF recovered thousands of the devices which were imported from China. In 2021 and 2022, people have been manufacturing the switch devices with 3D printers. In March 2022, a Vice News investigation learned that the federal prosecutions which involved conversion devices have been rising since 2017. They determined that from 2017 to 2022, advances in low-cost 3D printers and global commerce on the internet have made the devices available for as little as $20 US. In 2022, federal authorities documented a dramatic rise in the prevalence of the Glock switches.
A Glock switch or Glock auto-sear is a small device that can be attached to the rear of the slide of a Glock handgun, converting the semi-automatic pistol into a machine pistol capable of fully automatic fire. As a type of auto sear, it functions by applying force to the trigger bar to prevent it from limiting fire to one round of ammunition per trigger pull. This device by itself, regardless if it is installed on a slide or not, is considered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to be a machine gun. Therefore, the possession of this device is illegal under United States federal law if the person in possession does not have the required licensing.
It is not illegal to 3D print a suppressor or lower receiver in most cases depending on state laws. The ATF only requires that there is a metal component that will make it detectable as a gun or firearm part.Check out this Customizable LEGO-Compatible Brick on Thingiverse. It has several remixes of customized models that other users have made, and you can download the actual file itself, which includes a .scad design file.
3D printing assault weapons such as guns or firearms are not regulated in some states, and it is legal to print guns as long as it’s for personal use and they have metal components to make them detectable.
When it comes to picking the best 3D printer, there are some major factors that you should take into account. These are usually the price, durability, print speed, print quality, ability to upgrade, size and more. What I’ve done in this post is put together these key factors into determining what 3D printer is best…
No, it is not illegal to 3D print a knife since knives are legal objects. Many 3D printer users have 3D printed like letter openers, flip knives, a balisong without legal issues. Avoid patented or trademark knives since it can infringe on their brand. Be careful with taking them in public depending on your local laws.
3D printers are great machines that produce lovely models, but one question that people wonder is whether 3D printers can be used in a hot or cold garage, or even outside. It’s a perfectly valid question, which I will aim to answer in this article so it clears up any things you may have been…While there is no law against 3D printed knives, there are some libraries that have 3D printer access will classify 3D printed knives as a weapon, which is prohibited.
It is not illegal to 3D print guns at home for legal use depending on your location and countries’ laws. However, it is illegal to sell these 3D printed guns. There is a federal law that makes illegal any gun that does not go off in pass-through metal detectors which includes plastic 3D printed guns.
In the United Kingdom, the Firearms Act 1968 bans the manufacturing of guns or their parts without government approval and this includes 3D printed guns.People wonder about the legalities of 3D printing and whether it is illegal to 3D print a 3D printer or guns and knives. This article will answer some legal questions about 3D printers and 3D prints. 3D printed guns don’t require serial numbers so they may not be traceable by law enforcement. Also, 3D printers themselves don’t require that you pass a background check before you produce a gun part by part. It can be illegal to 3D print guns depending on your location. You should refer to your country’s laws to see if it is legal to 3D print them. One London student was convicted for 3D printing a gun, but the laws are different in America. 3D printed guns should go off in a metal detector to satisfy federal laws.The Sermoon series from Creality brings this year include the Sermoon V1 and V1 Pro. It’s a 3D printer being selected to exhibit in the National Pavilion during Expo 2020 Dubai, Sermoon V1 series is rated as the best choice for a family. In addition to the quality, most consumers care about the appearance of…
As long as you don’t claim that they are true Legos, then you are somewhat safe. There are some companies that 3D print custom parts that are not considered illegal. Notwithstanding, a 3D printer cannot print the tiny lettering of the Lego logo so you may not be able to 3D print Legos that can easily pass off as Legos.Printing items with a patent on them is illegal as you may face the possibility of being sued for 3D printing them. Since the items have patents on them, you are not licensed to reproduce them without approval from the owner.
You may have to be careful with patented objects by ensuring that whatever you’re 3D printing is not someone else’s innovation or creation. If you are looking to print a patented item, you may have to seek permission and most probably do some paperwork before being permitted to 3D print them.
When the parent of the boy assumed that it was an age-related issue and called to pick up the knife, they had to let them know that it was not an age-related issue and that the print was classified as a weapon.
Looking into the world of 3D printing, it’s the material that makes up the industry, so it made me wonder what the best filaments were in terms of popularity and just overall. This article is going to look into the top 5 best 3D printer filaments for printing out there, so stay tuned for each…
As you may have heard, the all-new SKR Mini E3 V2.0 (Amazon) has been released, giving a whole new option to everyone to upgrade their control board. I’m going to do my best to detail the changes that this new board have over the previous V1.2 board. The V2.0 board is described as a motherboard…
Yes, it is legal to 3D print a 3D printer. There are no laws against 3D printing a 3D printer. You’ll need to 3D printer the parts separately then attach them together, either using superglue, or having a snap fit design that fits together with some manual force.
Owners are also expected to obtain a serial number for manufacturing a suppressor or lower receiver since they are both categorized as part of a firearm. Especially if they are looking to sell or gift the component.
This also depends on the country or state in which you are. Different states have additional laws regulating 3D printed guns. While some states may issue a serial number for 3D printed guns, others may only require that the manufacturer keeps a log of their serial number.The policy of the library at the time was that all 3D prints could be vetoed at the discretion of the library staff. After the incident, they had to update their policy to incorporate the prohibition of 3D printed weapons. A 3D printing library once had a teenage boy 3D print a 3” knife which could inflict a puncture if handled with force, The library disallowed the boy from picking up the 3D printed knife as it was classified as a weapon. Even if you 3D print Lego-looking bricks, you are good if you don’t claim that the prints are made by the company or that your product is endorsed by Legos unless excused or permitted by the company.
Resin 3D printers have been growing in popularity for a while now, mainly due to how easy they are to use, as well as the significant price decrease. That has led to many people wondering what exactly a resin 3D printer is, and how it works. That’s why I decided to write an article about…
3D printing Lego bricks is not illegal but could be illegal if you try to sell or pass them off as Legos pieces as this will be an infringement on the trademark.
It’s possible to get around this by making significant changes to the object you are printing which doesn’t fit into the exact patent or trademark of the object. An example would be the Customizable LEGO-Compatible Brick from Thingiverse as mentioned above.
This Micro Conversion Kit is a lightweight and sturdy platform for Glock handguns, turning it into the ultimate Glock Conversion Kit. It is greatly improved from previous generations of the Micro Roni Stabilizer.Reloads are simple since you are using a Glock 17s controls. The button is easy to reach due to how the KPOS G2 attaches to the Glock. The addition of a third point of contact makes things easier than a normal Glock reload. It’s faster, more intuitive, and easier to keep the gun on target while reloading.
Lastly, with the folding stock the gun is quite small and easy to carry. It can be tucked away in a compact case and its perfect as a trunk gun. In fact, if you conceal carry a Glock (Or several other weapons) you can pack a KPOS Gen 2 kit with a 16-inch barrel in the vehicle for an emergency rifle option. Installation isn’t instantaneous, but in less than a minute a practiced person could install the barrel and kit.
The folding stock is unwavering. It’s a bit stiff but needs to be when locked into place. I’ve never had to fold a stock in a hurry. Unfolding the stock is easy and requires only a single hand. The gun can be fired with the stock folded if that floats your boat.
Backing off to roughly 75 yards I have no issues ringing my steel target over and over. I could probably keep it to the beat of a song if I really wanted to. Long range shooting is great, but what does it do for close range shooting? It makes it easier to maneuver and transition between targets with speed and accuracy. Of course, as a rifle you have three points of contact with your weapon, so your control over the weapon is improved greatly.
What turns Glock into machine gun?
Glock switch A Glock switch or Glock auto-sear is a small device that can be attached to the rear of the slide of a Glock handgun, converting the semi-automatic pistol into a machine pistol capable of fully automatic fire.
Recoil is something you barely notice when shooting a round as light as the 9mm. The same goes for muzzle rise. The 16-inch barrel also helps in this regard. The muzzle rise is basically nil. You can squeeze that trigger as fast as you desire and the gun is hardly going to move off target. I ran through a few of my favorite drills with just the Glock and then the KPOS Gen 2 carbine kit. The drills included the Mozambique drill, failure to stop on 2 targets, and even a modified El Presidente drill. It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Glock carbine was faster, was more accurate, and easier to manipulate than the pistol. One of the biggest keys to a firearm’s success is often its inherent modularity. Modularity is the key to an adaptable weapon system. Adaptability is often the key to success. Look at the American SOPMOD systems for the M4 platform. There is a reason the gun has served so long with the United States. The M4 platform is chosen over more modern weapons like the SCAR L for a reason. One of the few guns that’s adaptable as the M4 is going to be the Glock series of handguns. One example of Glock adaptability is the fact Glock pistol to carbine conversion kits exist. There is more than one way to turn a Glock into a rifle, but today we are getting a little help from our friends at ZFI Inc. They’ve provided us with a KPOS G2 carbine conversion kit and an IGB barrel.I was unlucky enough to run some terrible ammunition through this thing my first time out. It was Freedom Munitions American steel and the rounds kept failing to extract or eject. I got some genuine malfunction training with this ammunition. The AR 15 charging handle is nice to rack and using the Glock’s stock controls to eject the magazine and lock the slide to the rear is inherently intuitive. This makes fixing malfunctions simple and quick. The massive ejection ports allows me to sweep my sausage fingers inside the gun and clear the chamber.
What attachment is needed for Glock to make it a rifle?
The RONI is well known worldwide as a way to turn your Glock handgun into a carbine or short barreled rifle.
The system itself is extremely easy to use. The stock is a metal skeletonized stock. Be aware it doesn’t offer a lot of cheek rest. Also, it’s metal, and its the winter. It’s flippin cold to the touch and gives you a bit of a shock on those early morning range days.With pleasant recoil and minimal muzzle rise this is great for taking a new shooter to the range and teaching them the basics. It’s also quite lightweight and the stock offers a short length of pull for smaller shooters. A short length of pull would typically be an issue with larger shooters like me. With this Glock carbines little recoil and little muzzle rise I don’t find it hard to handle.
Can you turn a Glock into a carbine?
One example of Glock adaptability is the fact Glock pistol to carbine conversion kits exist. There is more than one way to turn a Glock into a rifle, but today we are getting a little help from our friends at ZFI Inc. They’ve provided us with a KPOS G2 carbine conversion kit and an IGB barrel.
I agree, when its a handgun. Carrying a handgun will likely mean a holster, which covers the trigger already. As a rifle, you don’t have a holster to protect the trigger, so this grip acts the same way a trigger acts.The KPOS G2 also comes with an interesting vertical foregrip. It folds and extends. The purpose of this grip is to also act as a device to cover the trigger. The foregrip extends outwards and almost doubles in length. This extension is what covers the trigger. The grip features a button on each side that when pressed retracts the foregrip extension.
The KPOS G2 comes equipped with a standard AR 15 charging handle for racking the weapon. This makes things nice for those of us who are accustomed to the platform. That’s really the only modification to the Glock’s controls. You’ll still use the same magazine release and slide lock to manipulate the weapon.
Normally if I just slammed my Glock into a KPOS G2 kit I would need a tax stamp and have to follow the applicable NFA laws. This would become a short barreled rifle, and without a stamp, you are looking at a $250,000 dollar fine and potentially a 10-year prison sentence. Avoiding the hassle of the NFA is easy, all you need is a 16-inch barrel. For this KPOS Gen 2 review, I’m simply going to install the IGB 16 inch barrel. This barrel is pretty handy and if you’re a reader you’ve seen it before. For new readers, this is my second Glock carbine and you can check out the first here.I want to mention this was the only ammunition I had issues with, and with later testing had issues in a CZ Scorpion, a Kel Tec Sub 2000 and my Glock 17 in its standard configuration. The ammo is junk, and Fiocchi, Tula, and Winchester White Box gave me zero issues.Installing the 16-inch barrel is easy enough. If you can disassemble your Glock you can install this barrel. Installing the Glock into the KPOS G2 kit is quite simple. Instead of just explaining it, watch our short video below to get a better idea of how the system works. Shooting this video was harder than making a Glock carbine.
Is Glock conversion kit legal?
In brief, the pistol conversion kit, as an item by itself, is 100% legal. However, attaching your gun to it is what makes the whole thing illegal. This is certainly the type of news many firearm holders would love to hear.
This is quite the intuitive kit. It provides a stable and simple means to turn a Glock into a pistol caliber carbine. While I used a Glock for this kit, the KPOS is available for a wide variety of firearms. This includes guns from IWI, CZ, and Rock Island Armory. The KPOS G2 kit is a simple way to make your own Glock Carbine.One of the things that impressed me the most during my KPOS Gen 2 review was how well designed the kit is. It’s so simple to use and made so well. It’s made almost entirely of metal and covered with picatinny rails. It has a full-length top rail that’s perfect for optics of all sizes. I went with a simple Meopta MeoSight lll. The KPOS is equipped with a set of nice folding iron sights that are sturdy and well made as well. The biggest fault I could find was the charging handle. It doesn’t offer a lot of leverage over the slide. It takes some real force to rack the gun. You really have to grip and rip the charging handle to get it to move. It would really benefit from a larger and wider charging handle. There is a small issue with the right side picatinny rail. There is a necessary lever that allows you to put the Glock in and out of the kit. It’s easy to block this lever with an accessory. If the lever is blocked you can’t install or remove the gun from the KPOS. It will accommodate smaller accessories fine, but just be sure you don’t block that lever. Travis Pike Travis Pike is a former Marine Machine gunner who served with 2nd Bn 2nd Marines for 5 years. He deployed in 2009 to Afghanistan and again in 2011 with the 22nd MEU(SOC) during a record setting 11 months at sea. He’s trained with the Romanian Army, the Spanish Marines, the Emirate Marines and the Afghan National Army. He serves as an NRA certified pistol instructor and teaches concealed carry classes.The barrel has no issues interacting with the KPOS G2 Glock carbine conversion kit. The Glock itself has no issues mating with the barrel or KPOS kit. The KPOS features a wide ejection port that makes sure no cases are caught between the KPOS and the gun. I never had an issue with failure to ejects. Last but not least. It is very critical that you first ensure to be aware of the law before attempting to convert your gun to avoid incurring certain criminal consequences out of the lack of proper knowledge. So now you know, …welcome to CSK Tactical the world of legal firearm conversion! Although the first same answer applies—for the sake of those leaving or wanting to move to California and are also asking themselves, “is the CAA MCK legal in California?”—be advised that the CAA MCK is 100% CA legal. At least until you install your handgun to it—then you will need to worry about how to make the new thing legal because it is illegal this time.
The gun itself was originally designed, and intended to be used by one hand from the start—and was only later converted into a rifle then back to its usual state. There are just no arguments regarding this type of transition because you only detached your pistol from the fancy extension kit. Hence, changing your pistol to a rifle then back to a handgun only makes the thing to be an NFA-regulated item.
If you are thinking that this type of transition is also a legal one, just like it is with the opposite transition—you are damn wrong. Because this conversion only makes a short-barrelled rifle itself. Thanks to its pesky definition, the “short-barrelled rifle”—you are expected to get an ATF approval, and pay applicable taxes for this transition to be legal.
This is certainly the type of news many firearm holders would love to hear. Because a pistol to rifle conversion is a 100% legal transition. This conversion doesn’t require any sort of registration, or NFA compliance. In short, you are only shifting from one non-NFA item to another. Keep going.
With all that info out of the way, let us now head back to the question. Is the MCK conversion kit legal? Yes. And then, no. Let me explain. In brief, the pistol conversion kit, as an item by itself, is 100% legal. However, attaching your gun to it is what makes the whole thing illegal.So, is the MCK legal? Because many answers we are often coming across on the internet are either too short to provide enough info—or somewhat complicated—it is therefore, only critical that we begin by telling you what is not, and what is regulated before we delve into how to use a pistol carbine conversion kit.Further, the most regularly used firearms (pistols, and rifles) are not controlled by the NFA except for short-barrelled rifles. You are required to register your short-barrelled rifle with ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) and pay the applicable tax money. But this is not the case with rifles, or pistols.CKS Tactical conversion kits can enhance your shooting, or firing performance—and they are especially easy to use. But do I even need them? No, you don’t. Unless you feel like you need one. But it is certainly a fun thing to have, altogether.
If you have decided to convert your rifle into a short-barrelled gun, or an SBR without paying tax, and having been approved by the ATF—you will break the rules. Avoid sawing off your stock if it is shorter than the lawfully required full-length—that is if the full length is below twenty-six inches.
In a nutshell, these things only enhance the performance of your handgun. The MCK micro conversion kit handgun extensions are typically designed to improve the way your firearm performs.
First things first. According to the lawmakers of these things—a pistol, or a handgun, as you may find it fit to call it, refers to a type of gun that has a short stock—and is designed to be used, or fired with one hand. Think about the Glock, for example. But it is not a crime to use two hands for safety purposes, or gain more control over your gun.
Moreover, the “short-barrelled rifle” definition includes any rifle that doesn’t meet the 16-inches barrel length. So, converting your rifle down to pistol only means that you have a short-barrelled rifle that needs some other kind of attention. Read on.In brief, a TCM Roni pistol shell allows you to open a compartment, slide your gun inside, shut the compartment, and boom, you have completed the conversion.
Is the MCK good for home defense?
If you want a little larger platform that will give you more control of your gun, the MCK is great for home use. It does take a little more space because of its size, but it can be great for a compact system that takes up minimal space and allows you to use a good two-handed sub-machine gun grip.
However, if you feel like you’re well informed—and what you were expecting is to get a CMK for your Glock, or Taurus—you might want to check our shop for the Advanced Gen 2 Micro RONI Conversion Kits, and the Micro RONI Gen 4, Gen 4X kits.It is not the first time we are hearing such a question here at CKS Tactical. Also, it’s not the last time we’re going to respond to any concerns relating to the fancy MCK pistol conversion kits. For the sake of those who have yet to discover what this MCK thing is—I think it’s best to start right from the beginning.
What does MCK gun stand for?
Also, we used a SIG P320, as the MCK allows for compatibility with SIG and S&W M&P pistols as well as the Glock. Fitting the P320 into the MCK chassis, short for Micro Conversion Kit, is extremely fast, and after latching the gun into place, the weapon is ready to rock.
Further, this length includes any folding stocks, or collapsible features at their full lengths. And it is measured from the extreme ends of the firearm—unless, of course, if the additional stock is easily separable—then in this case, the length of the weapon is measured without that part. Ask yourself these questions if you want to figure out what you’re having. Firstly, it helps to know that there are some kinds of guns which are regulated by the National Firearm Act (NFA)—speaking of the law! Also, these regulations forbid you from holding specific guns without registering it first with the ATF, and paying applicable taxes. Moreover, the full length of the thing measures twenty-two inches—with an extended shoulder part. And the barrel’s length is only a few inches long. Accordingly, it helps to know that attaching your handgun to a TCM Roni kit turns your weapon into a short-barreled rifle, and as such, you’ll only be committing a crime if you didn’t previously register it with ATF, and paid the required tax money.Typically, an MCK, or a micro conversion kit is a smart extension feature for your handgun. The thing makes your pistol a notch higher—think of it like you just got yourself a bigger gun! Only it’s the same old thing that is only attached to the MCK kit to provide better grip, aim, or handling, for instance.Well, there is no fault in doing so. Because the whole transition is only perfectly legal. And while it might as well look somewhat confusing—the ATF themselves have clarified why they decided for things to be this way. Let me explain.
If you decide to convert your handgun into something else that is designed to be fired from the shoulder, and what you have doesn’t meet the required full-length measurement of 26-inch, or at least 16-inch barrel length—then what you have redesigned only matches the description of a short-barrelled rifle. You are expected to register your new item with ATF, and pay tax right before conversion.We have already seen that turning a handgun into a rifle is seamlessly legal. And it is also clear that turning your rifle into a handgun, which only makes the thing an SBR, is NFA-regulated. Are you now wondering about what might be the case if you change your pistol to a rifle then to a handgun?
Is it illegal to 3D print a Glock switch?
Officials said switches are illegally imported from overseas or 3D-printed locally. Because the devices can be made from plastic on a 3D printer, it means the files to make them can easily be shared over the internet.
CKS Tactical is a company established by seasoned security personnel whose years of experience have honed a focus on the marketing and distribution of high-quality defense accessories.Equally, a rifle is that type of gun that is typically made, or remade, and intended for firing from the shoulder. Similarly, short-barrelled rifles are those kinds of weapons that are made from rifles with 1 or more barrels less than sixteen inches long—or the overall size of the gun is less than twenty-six inches.
If you are asking about the conversion kit itself, that is 100% legal. But if you are looking to find out if it is still legal with your pistol fitted in—that is a completely different case. And it remains to be illegal until proven otherwise.
Yes. But also note that once you install your handgun to it, it will become a short-barrelled rifle. And as we have already learned—short-barrelled rifles need to be approved by ATF, and they attract a tax stamp of up to 200 USD.
Any good quality handgun can work for home defense, but you need to use what you are comfortable with. I carry a Glock 19 or 17 on me every day at work (19 for daily carry, 17 for tactical operations) and I train with it weekly, so I am very familiar and comfortable with a Glock, making this my first preference. I have used both 9mm and .40 caliber versions and when it comes to self-defense, there will be endless debate on which caliber is best. Both calibers, however, can easily stop an intruder, and the over penetration can be controlled by the type of ammunition used so we will leave the discussion of 9 vs 40 for another day.
No one will argue that a shotgun will stop an intruder. In fact, a 12 gauge is probably one of the most intimidating guns you could have pointed at you. There are endless options for ammunition so over penetration can be controlled rather well.
The thought of waking up in the middle of the night to sounds of an intruder in your house is what drives most people to select a home defense weapon. The idea of protecting your home is easy but selecting the right weapon can be a bit more complicated.
The Glock handgun is one of the most produced and used handguns in the world. In the United States it is currently the most-used handgun by law enforcement and the easiest gun in the US to find magazines for. I have 15, 17, 24 and 33 round magazines for my Glock 19. The Glock has proven to be one of the most reliable guns out there and its size is just right for me to use as a full-size combat gun, even though it is not a large bulky gun. If someone prefers a larger grip there is also the Glock 17 or 22. I also have many other firearms that use Glock mags making it a good platform of weapons for one magazine. I can attach a light on my Glock 19 and keep it hidden in any room, so it comes in at my first choice.
There is no perfect list for everyone because everyone is different. Their experience with guns is different, their ability to keep a gun close by could be more challenging depending on their family size and ages of children in the home. Each home will require careful consideration and planning when selecting a home defense weapon, but this is my list of the top three weapons to use.
I am not always a fan of conversation kits, but I will say when I was sent the MCK Micro to do some training with, I became a believer. If you want a little larger platform that will give you more control of your gun, the MCK is great for home use. It does take a little more space because of its size, but it can be great for a compact system that takes up minimal space and allows you to use a good two-handed sub-machine gun grip. You can attach a red dot and a light if you desire better optics.The shotgun has one thing going for it that no other weapon does and that is the distinct and universal sound of the pump, racking a 12-gauge shell into the chamber. I would venture to say there isn’t anyone that does not recognize and fear that sound. Have you noticed in movies they manage to “rack” the same shotgun multiple times to make a point? Of course, in real life, there would be unfired shells ejecting out of the gun but hey, its Hollywood.
Can I convert a pistol into a rifle?
Q: Can I turn my AR pistol into a regular rifle? A: Yes, and you do not have to file any NFA application or submit to the ATF’s bureaucracy. It’s entirely legal to throw a buttstock on your AR pistol and turn it into a regular rifle if you first install a barrel that’s 16″ or longer.
One of the best designs of the MCK is that the foregrip also carries an extra magazine. I keep a 32-round magazine in mine with a 17-round magazine as the backup. This is an important feature because most people will not be strapping on a mag pouch in the middle of the night when intruder kicks open your door. Grabbing the MCK and flipping open the stock gives you good stability, a light and lots of ammo on one platform. I placed this as number two, because its larger than the Glock 19 by itself and you must either place your Glock in it each night or have an extra one to leave in the MCK. The MCK often sells in the $250 range but I have seen them go on sale before as low as $150.There are many factors that need to be considered when selecting a home defense weapon and those factors can change greatly based on the individual that will be using it. A lot of us grew up in the days where your grandparents kept a shotgun by the front door, back door, over the mantel or within easy reach of their bed. Others grew up in a home that had no weapon in it and if someone were to break in, your only hope was calling 911 and waiting for the police to respond. Working in law enforcement for the past decade has allowed me to see a wide range of opinions on home defense and I have found many people today use anything from rifles to 12 gauge shotguns to small-framed, small-caliber handguns.There is not a “one size fits all” option when it comes to selecting a gun for home defense, everyday carry, hunting, or the zombie apocalypse. For home defense I recommend not going smaller than 9mm or larger than .45 caliber and I would not recommend a high caliber rifle unless you know you live in an area that would not be affected by the over penetrating round. Find something you are comfortable with, do some research, and then make sure you train with the weapon you select. When teaching firearms classes to law enforcement and civilians alike, I stress being aware of your surroundings and who will be affected if you start shooting through walls.
Again, in the movies it is always someone stomping out onto the porch and racking a shell into the chamber to scare off the would-be assailants, but this is real life and keeping a 12-gauge shotgun within easy grasp and being able to clear your home with a long-barred gun may be difficult for some people. If you train with one and you are familiar with it, and you can safely keep it within easy reach, then a 12 gauge may be the perfect home defense weapon for you. But for others, it may not be as practical. Like handguns, there are plenty of other good shotguns, but in general, it is good to stick with a popular model that has been tested extensively and offers plenty of accessories and parts so you can make it fit your needs. If you use a specific brand and like it, then that is what you should use.
When selecting a firearm for home defense, the first thing I take into consideration is the caliber. You want something that can stop an intruder, but not over penetrate. This of course can also change some by the individual circumstances. If you live in the middle of nowhere and have no one else living in the home with you, a larger caliber rifle may work just fine. But if you live in a populated area, a home with several rooms, or an apartment building, this needs to be the first consideration.CAA MCK GENERATION 2 Micro Conversion Advanced Kit – Glock 34, 35, 41 (Gen. 5, 4, 3) Look no further than the lightweight micro-form factor PRO Gen 2 MCK Kit for the fastest assembly and disassembly conversion kit available boasting the highest-quality manufacturing and broad compatibility.

There are several notable improvements over the first-generation micro conversion kit. The kit is easier and quicker to fit, thanks to the rear door extending by 15 degrees more. Suppressor height sights can also now be fitted, and the top Picatinny rail has heightened stability translating to better accuracy and longer-lasting durability.
The Gen 2 MCK has a better clip holder and expulsion system than ever, allowing for lightning-quick release with as little loading delay as possible. The charging handle also grips better by touching more of the stock’s surface, instantly granting a sense of combat readiness. While not provided, the kit supports a brass catcher and accommodates a suppressor with a maximum diameter of up to 1.38″.

With or without the brace, the stability and consequent accuracy upgrade is impressive. The area between the top fitment area and the bottom of the rail is broader, which makes using an optic/sight or suppressor sight much more effective. The new generation Gen 2 MCK is a total upgrade over all previous versions. There’s nothing quite like it, from the enhanced charging handle to improved overall design and faster-than-ever fitment, it exceeds all expectations.Officials said switches are illegally imported from overseas or 3D-printed locally. Because the devices can be made from plastic on a 3D printer, it means the files to make them can easily be shared over the internet.
Is it illegal to 3D print a Glock?
It is not illegal to 3D print guns at home for legal use depending on your location and countries’ laws. However, it is illegal to sell these 3D printed guns. There is a federal law that makes illegal any gun that does not go off in pass-through metal detectors which includes plastic 3D printed guns.
The device demonstrated Wednesday allowed the handgun to empty a 30-round magazine in about two seconds − two to three times faster than pulling the trigger for each round. The ATF explained that using the devices makes shootings more deadly. More bullets can hit the victim, but the weapon is also harder to control so bullets can be sprayed around striking innocent bystanders.
Also called a “chip” or “auto sear,” it’s a small device that gets installed on the back of a Glock handgun. Instead of firing one round per trigger pull, the device allows the gun to continue firing at a high rate as long as the trigger is pressed.A man was recently sentenced to three years in prison for having one installed on his Glock, which he said he fired in self-defense. Parker said that’s no excuse.

Customer Service has been top shelf, for an issue I had with the adjustment pad, and I had to improvise with a magpul grip mod removing the beaver tail to fit, and storage for a spare mag is an old utility tool pouch Velcro’d in, but overall I really love the fit and finish makeover for the old 26…Please be advised that different states, localities, and jurisdictions have different laws regarding the types of products sold by META Tactical, and such products may be unlawful in certain places.

This thing ran with No problems. Used a 50 round drum and it is the most fun I’ve had with Weapon in a Long time!! You have to have one!! I bought one of these MCKs from a gun show and love it so far. The only problem I have with it is I had to take off my rear sight and replace the original Glock sights in order for it to properly fit. I had the TruGLO TFX Pro Tritium fiber optic sights on my Glock, they extend out too far to properly seat in the rear sight area on the MCK and will cause the Glock not to lock into the MCK. So, just be sure your rear sights are close to, or are the original sights if you buy one of these and it will fit perfectly flush.“GLOCK” is a federally registered trademark of Glock, Inc. and is one of many trademarks owned by Glock, Inc. or Glock Ges.m.b.H. Glockstore.com is not affiliated with nor endorsed by Glock, Inc. or Glock Ges.m.b.H. Man I have had one of these for atleast a year now. I bought it in a bundle where I got all the attachments but the light and sling and it came with a 50 round drum it was for my glock 19 gen 4, at first I was having problems with it but it was all human error just not putting the gun in correctly. I have mastered it now no problems ever I put a Sig Romeo 5 on it and it’s a monster….even the 50rd drum I have is still very reliable last time I went shooting dumped 50 out of it no problems at all. I Highly Recommend these MCK’S! I love the MCK but the red color is off a bit and not like the picture. People ask me if its pink and I say no it’s supposed to be red. I have the red extended controls in red and they dont match the MCK at all. If you want red, I’d buy it at the store and not order online. The device works great but the color is the only thing I’m disappointed at I tired this on my G17…wow!….Knocked the ten ring out nearly everytime at 30 feet. Used a red dot and/or a bull green dot laser….piece of cake! What a difference the additional points of contact make to stabilize the weapon. I ordered mine directly from CAA, haven’t been to the range yet but I’m sure it wont disappoint. Better then the last version. Hope they’ll be coming out with some new muzzle shrouds and breachers for this model like there standard SBR version does.This is the real deal! Looks Great and shoots like a dream! This MCK is awesome can’t say enough good things about it. Shot 200rds. though it with my G19 Gen4 it functioned flawless and accurate. Made the steel plates dance and sing. Used a red dot on it, shot faster & more accurate than ever. It will make you look like a pro. It’s the perfect combination and loads of fun! Get while you can. Support the NRA.Just got my MCK and it is awesome. It has turn my Glock 22 into a stabilization platform. And I can add accessories to the picatinny rails. Great for home defense. Or doing some plinking. Great invention.
I was skeptical at first of this platform I was slow to order. What sold me was I can use different Glocks. I put my G22 in there and took to range. It performed flawlessly and the accuracy with flip up sights was amazing, Get one while you can the increased accuracy alone and conceal ability is why government don’t want you to have it. Ordered the MCK from GlockStore. Came in a week later. I also ordered a 50 round drum mag at the same time. Both products came brand new in box, shipping was fast a easy. I will be using Glock store again, and recommend to all. Thanks guys!! Got this from the Glock Store and works great on my G17G4 and G19G5. I had to take my medium back straps off to get the weapons locked in the MCK-the locking tab will not engage. Taking the guns off was challenging as it was a tight fit. Its easier when I push the gun fwd then engage the release tabs and pulled back. Pay attention when installing the gun-you have to push it straight forward otherwise it will catch the sides of the channel. you’ll notice this right away when the gun jams as you push it forward while installing.
Excellent conversion kit to extend your G19 out to 100M with ease. Light. compact. well-built, and so very easy to install your Glock. I highly recommend some extended mags as you will love running all the ammo you can. I also recommend the upgrade kit with light, thumb guards and sling. Even the wife likes getting her hands on this one at the range.MCK Micro Conversion Kit is vast improvement over Micro Ronni which I also have. and it cost about half what I paid.. It does everything the Micro Ronni did only a lot better with no hangups and issues. The white light from the Ronni works on the MCK. Everything on Micr-Ronni is transferable to MCK. Micro-Ronni only adapts to one specific pistol, where as the MCK adapts to a whole family of pistols, like Glock. The weak side hand placement works without a special thumb rest. Thumb rest from Ronni works on MCK if you want. Shoulder strap attaches on either. No pistol brace extension needed. MCK uses pistol’s slide release so no mal-functions like Ronni. The only thing the Ronni has that the MCK doesn’t is a trigger guard flap which many users did not like anyway.. The MCK cost half of what I paid for Ronni and accessories. A conversion kit truly gives you a wide range of options when it comes to your Glock. Not to mention, it gives you quite an edge when it comes to long-range work with your pistol.
