The Glock 18 is a selective-fire variant of the Glock 17, developed at the request of the Austrian counter-terrorist unit EKO Cobra. Originally produced in 1986, this machine pistol–class firearm has a lever-type fire-control selector switch, installed on the serrated portion of the rear left side of the slide. With the selector lever in the bottom position, the pistol fires fully automatically, and with the selector lever in the top position, the pistol fires semiautomatically. The firearm is typically used with an extended 33-round-capacity magazine, although other magazines from the Glock 17 will function, with available capacities of 10, 17, or 19 rounds. Early Glock 18 models were ported to reduce muzzle rise during automatic fire. Another compensated variant was produced, known as the Glock 18C. It has a keyhole opening cut into the forward portion of the slide, similar to the opening on the Glock long-slide models, although the Glock 18 has a standard-length slide. The keyhole opening provides an area to allow the four, progressively larger (from back to front) compensator cuts machined into the barrel to vent the propellant gases upwards, affording more control over the rapid-firing machine pistol.
About this creation
Here is the G18 made out of lego with 364 bricks , excluding attachments.The model is a modified version from my G19 but with some differences, such as the longer slide, pistol grip and a fire selector.
The slide can be pulled back and can be stuck in place with the help of the slide lock.I designed the slide to have an opening at the front to mimic the Glock long-slide models.The purpose for this design is to allow the exploding gasses to propel upward lessening recoli.With this opening, you can see the barrel inside.
With the slide to the rear, you can also see the magazine inside the hollow design of the pistol grip.
Here is a cutaway view of the model.
I've also made some attachemnts for the gun soon afterwords.The attachments consists of a suppressor,a red dot sight, a laser sight and a rail adapter.When put together, it looks epic and tactical,
The rail adapter is designed in such a way that when the slide is pulled back,The front sight post doesn't hit the rails
Here is a comparison between a naked G18 with a naked G19.
The real pistol with extended stick magazine.
