Utah Man Convicted Of Selling Devices To Make Automatic Guns

A federal jury has convicted a Utah man of illegally importing and selling devices to convert semi-automatic handguns into fully automatic weapons. Gary Hill was accused of importing from China and selling conversion devices for Glock handguns in Utah without having paid a special occupation tax or registering as required by law. Hill was caught after he sold multiple devices to three undercover agents in February and March 2017. He faces up to 10 years in federal prison. The conversion devices are known as Glock auto switches. Authorities say Hill is a former investment banker.
