    Glock makes a full size .380 acp however only for LE. I suppose it's possible to find a used one.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Why are they not allowed to be resold in the US? Because they are available.

    The Glock 25 & 28 (the Glocks chambered in .380 ACP) are not legally imported into the United States. They lack the required number of BATFE import points. To qualify for import a pistol must score 75 points based on the following system:

    Characteristic Points

    Length: for each 1/4" over 6" 1
    Forged steel frame 15
    Forged HTS alloy frame 20
    Unloaded weight w/mag (per oz.) 1
    .22 short and .25 auto 0
    .22 LR and 7.65mm to .380 auto 3
    9mm parabellum and over 10
    Locked breech mechanism 5
    Loaded chamber indicator 5
    Grip safety 3
    Magazine safety 5
    Firing pin block or lock 10
    External hammer 2
    Double action 10
    Drift adjustable target sight 5
    Click adjustable target sight 10
    Target grips 5
    Target trigger 2

    Here is how the Glock 26 scores:

    Length (6.29") 1
    Weight (21.87 oz) 22
    Caliber (9mm) 10
    Locked breech 5
    Firing pin block 10
    Double action 10
    Target sight 10
    Target grips 5
    Target trigger 2
    Total 75

    Changes and features made to Glocks to comply with the BATF rules:

    - all models are imported with a cheap click-adjustable rear sight that is replaced at the factory with the stock sight
    - target (grooved) trigger added to compacts & subcompacts
    - target grips added to all models (required for the subcompacts)
    - due to their caliber, .380 autos (G25 & G28) do not score enough points to be imported


    The Glock .380 ACP models are primarily intended for markets which prohibit civilian ownership of firearms chambered in military calibers such as 919mm Parabellum. They are not offered in the United States, due to the characteristics of the gun making it unable to pass import restrictions.


    Due to the relatively low bolt thrust of the .380 ACP cartridge, these models feature an unlocked breech and operates via straight blowback of the slide. This method of operation required modification of the locking surfaces on the barrel as well as a redesign of the former locking block.
    • The Glock 25, introduced in 1995, is a derivative of the Glock 19 which has been adapted to use the .380 ACP cartridge. The standard magazine capacity of the Glock 25 is 15 rounds.
    • The Glock 28 is a subcompact version of the blowback-operated Glock 25, with a standard magazine capacity of 10 rounds. The factory magazine from the Glock 25, with a capacity of 15 rounds, will function in the Glock 28.

    I don't really care either way but this right off Glock's website.

    but when you go onto glocks Law Enforcement section on the same site to look at available pistols for law enforcement, those 380's are not there.........i have not heard of an officer owning a glock 380.....nor have i ever seen a glock 380 offered for sale by any leo firearm distributor.

    Officers are not above making a buck either......if there was a huge demand (sounds like there is collector interest) then i guarantee some officers would be selling their 380 glocks for a huge profit.

    Glock could be restricting sales to agencies only...but i have not ever heard anything about 380's being issued.

    i'm sure that there are some 380 glocks over here in civilian hands that somehow sifted in.....far and few and probably under the table.

    now that would be something if the mexican cartels decided to smuggle glock 380's in........and quite interesting and profitable. I bet the glockaholics would pay a thousand bucks a pop for one.
