The Glock is an iconic family of pistols, synonymous with law enforcement due to its exceptional reliability.
This particular model is the Glock 18C – full automatic as well as semi-auto. One of the most famous examples of this pistol is in the James Bond film Skyfall, seen with extended magazines (as well as a double C-mag). The gun shares the same dimensions as its semi-auto only brother, the G17, which makes it very comfortable to use.
The Glock gained widespread acclaim due to scaremongering from the press upon its initial release, falsely claiming that it could pass through airport security because it is a polymer-made pistol. This led to it being referred to as the ‘terrorist’ pistol, which is ironic considering it is now most commonly used by military and police forces around the world!
WE-Tech’s replica of the Glock G18C is sublime – from the compensator cuts on the slide to the texture of polymer, this gun is truly fantastic! Colouring is superb; it is not quite jet black nor an off-black – it makes the gun look like a gun.
The grip sits comfortably in the hand, and the controls are extremely ergonomic. Magazine release is placed exactly where you would expect it, and slide release is in easy reach of your thumb (provided you’re not shooting southpaw). The fire selector is found on the slide, making switching between semi and full auto as easy as flicking it with your thumb!
The WE G18C is arguably the best fully automatic Glock on the market. It doesn’t have any of the issues of the KSC/KWA G18 (such as the fire selector working itself loose), and doesn’t require the slide to be racked when switching between semi & full auto!
The gun features a 20mm accessory rail to allow the mounting of lasers, torches etc, giving it a more tactical look.
WE have based their design off of the TM-spec Glock as opposed to the KSC gas version, so you can expect a higher degree of accuracy and reliability over the KSC/KWA. It is powered by green gas, and performs excellently all year round – it is nowhere near as susceptible to cool down as older designs, though we would still recommend warming the magazine before shooting!
