Best Airsoft Glock 18
Unless you’re a gun connoisseur, you’ll be forgiven for not knowing what a Glock 18 is simply because the weapon itself is off-limits for civilian use. This gun was designed for counter-terrorist organizations and is essentially the fully automatic version of the Glock 17. The closest you may ever get to legally owning a Glock 18 may be purchasing the airsoft version of this gun.
When it comes to Glock 18 replicas, nothing comes close to the VFC Glock G18 Gen3 Gas Blowback Airsoft Pistol w/ Extended Magazine. With an official license from Glock itself, this airsoft gun will surely impress you with its performance.
Designed for Endurance
As with other VFC weapons, the VFC Glock G18 Gen3 is constructed to handle tough combat conditions. The slide is made entirely of metal and can endure the demanding situations you may encounter during a match. The mold injected polymer frame adds to this strength, making this a very sturdy piece of weaponry.
The unique ergonomic grip provides excellent handling and makes it easy to quickly draw the weapon from your holster, with mounted sights on both the rear and front of the gun to help precisely aim. When the firefight turns chaotic, the patented Glock design allows you to take down targets as efficiently as possible. If the default grip isn’t to your liking, it can be replaced with another of your choice.
The full metal extended magazine takes up to 50 rounds of BB ammunition. The gun itself uses either propane or green gas as a propellant. The magazine comes with its fuel injection at the top instead of the usual location at the base.
As with the original Glock 18, you can set fire mode to safe, semi-automatic, or full auto. With the semi-automatic mode, you can fire as quickly as you can pull the trigger; on full auto, you can unload your entire magazine with a single press.
The adjustable hop-up can be accessed by removing the slide allows users to correct the trajectory of their shots on the fly. This is important for field matches where the weather can affect the accuracy of your shots. The gun can fire from 251 – 300 FPS using 0.20 gram BB ammo.
The VFC Glock G18 Gen3 has a small rail under the barrel, allowing you to mount accessories. Whether you want a tactical flashlight or lasers, you can slot them in without further modification. The functional Glock trigger safety button allows you to secure the gun from discharging accidentally.
As Authentic as You Can Get
Because purchasing the genuine Glock 18 is nigh impossible for civilians, the VFC Glock G18 Gen3 Airsoft Pistol is about the closest you can get to the real thing. What sets this gun apart from other mock Glock 18s is that it’s licensed by the company that produces the original.
From the design to the weight and the official Glock markings, this gun is a perfect replica that will impress novices and veterans alike. The slide has mock gas ports to add to the authenticity, and the magazine even has bullet markings to simulate a fully-loaded clip.
The gas blowback provides a realistic recoil for increased immersion and is particularly impressive when firing on full auto.

The Legendary Glock 18
Because of its unavailability to non-military users, the Glock 18 has become somewhat of a legend among gun enthusiasts. With its availability as an airsoft replica, civilians are now given a chance to experience this amazing weapon themselves. As to what makes the Glock 18 special, the reasons are as follows:
The Glock 18 was designed for use by counter-terrorist organizations, and these groups require the best equipment available. The original gun was created to serve its users even in the most extreme conditions possible, and this is what the airsoft version seeks to emulate. If you’re looking for a weapon that can get you through the most frantic firefight, then this is the model for you.
Great Accuracy Using Semi-Auto
The military has rather stringent standards for the accuracy of their weapons, and the VFC Glock G18 Gen3 pursues the same benchmark. Whether steady or on the move, target acquisition was straightforward and accurate with the original Glock sights. Users of the airsoft replica enjoy the same quality as the original. In addition, a small Picatinny rail allows you to mount lasers or tactical lights for improved aim.
Sidearms are meant to be used as a backup weapon which requires them to be easy to handle during unexpected situations. Militaries use the Glock design throughout the globe because of its ease of handling. The same impressive design carries over to this airsoft replica as Glock itself has given it its official nod of approval.
Original Glocks can come with magazines between 17 and 33 rounds. This particular model comes in an extended 50 round version allowing you to appreciate the full auto mode. Although magazine capacity isn’t official, 100 round magazines do exist, so it isn’t too far from the truth. The original gun isn’t available for civilians anyway, so having a 50 round fully automatic pistol isn’t immersion breaking.
Why Choose VFC Glock G18 Gen3?
One of the best arguments for getting a VFC Glock G18 Gen3 is that it’s officially licensed by the maker of the original gun. This replica may be the closest you can get to ever using the real Glock 18. Because the manufacturers themselves have given their approval, you can be sure that this model is very accurate to the real thing.
When in use, the accuracy may suffer a bit when used on full auto as the ammo gets released too quickly for the hop-up to contact the BBs. Proper hop-up adjustments return when switching back to semi-automatic, however. The 50-round magazine will also require constant refiling, though that’s expected with the number of ammo that you can fire. Also, this model is rather pricey, but it’s well worth what you pay for it.
