I was lucky to test the 25 and was just like the 19 but very soft on the recoil.
Also I notice the barrel tilds but still a blow back system.

Very nice. Haven't seen one in person. I'm not a .380 fan but it would make a nice standard sized handgun for women who are sensitive to recoil if they were marketed. Where did you get to try that one?

Yes this 380acp rounds look dangerous, some times I see no logic on some rules or laws.

and the Glock 25 is illegal here...stupid..
It is not illegal here. It does not have enough import points. Cops can get them if they want them. Also, if there is enough of a demand, they will start manufacturing them at the Smyrna plant.

exactly. illegal to import..i know because I tried and was told by the alphabet guys these are illegal for civilians to own because of GCA68..just what I was told..of course cops are special and can get one..which is stupid as well.. I dont see Glock making one here in .380 when 9mm is so much better and in many cases cheaper..

All Glocks do it. In fact, most semi-auto pistols do it. It's called "recoil operated" and was developed by John Browning over a century ago.

No offense sir, But I believe .380 glocks actually don't have a locked breech, and rely solely on straight blow back. I could be mistaken through.

If the barrel tilts as the OP says that it does it's recoil operated. In a straight blow back system the barrel is fixed and does not move. Think Walther PPK, P22, HKP7, Jennings, Bryco.

Negatory.
Pretty much every source to be found points out that the Glock .380's are blowback operated.

The fact that they do not have a fixed barrel "think Walther PPK, Jennings, Bryco..." but a tilting barrel in a blowback system makes them unique.

Glock keeps talking about building them domestically, have for years.
Don't know what is holding them back as I am sure the market would support it.

Reference links please. I'd like to read and learn.

Ok, I stand corrected. I was wrong. I've never before seen a rolling barrel design that was considered straight blow back but then I've never seen a glock 380 either.

Pretty cool seeing the Glock 25... I wouldn't ever want one but cool nonetheless. Man those import points/Saturday Night Special laws suck!

I'm a huge fan of collecting Walther guns, the PP series in particular. To get a post-war German PPK that was imported in the short window of less than 10 years before the import ban in '69 costs STUPID money. I ended up just buying a real nice 1962 parts kit and using it on a frame I stole from a beat to ever loving hell '39 commercial PPK I had.
