Anybody know if these can be purchased legally? I have heard that apparently there are no 18C's in the US for legal transfer, but that conversion kits are manufactured for the 17's that make it select-fire like the 18. If so, what do they (the kits) run?

No, they can't be legally purchased or installed. Even owning such a kit, if you also own a Glock that it will fit, would lead to the ATF filing charges against you. Not a good idea! :mad:

You can buy one if you have a FFL and paid the Class 3 Special Occupation Tax. Then you have to go to the local police department and get a letter from them stating that they want to see a demonstration of a Glock 17C with da switch.

Or if you have a FFL and paid the Class 2 SOT you can build one but you have to register it with the ATF the same day you build it.

Of if you are a police chief I guess you could order your underlings to buy one for the department.

Pretty much any other method you try in the US will earn you a 10 year vacation in federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison.... unless the courts of appeal decide the Stewart ruling stands and home made MGs and parts are not subject to interstate commerce.

You could probably find them for about $150 IIRC. But they require green gas to operate and are chambered in 6mm...

Theyre fun:D

Actually, according to what I recall of some rulings, just the parts for converting a gun to FA can be considered an unregistered MG by the alphabet people. I don't have links or references handy, but if I find them, I'll post them.
