    LOL, what's the fun in buying one when you can build it yourself.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    Poly 80 frame should be accepted by glock. Its solves all the grip issues most people have. Plus it comes with under cuts and great stipple job. Apex trigger kit is my go to trigger. I choose after market barrel because I reload. Otherwise I probably wouldnt bother . William's fiber optic sights. My glock 17 long slide is my favorite i have ever owned.

    You just can not buy one of these. Custom "chainmail" stippling, Rock City custom milled slide, billet extractor, Agency TiN barrel with flush 11 degree crown, Suarez trigger, NDZ custom aluminum slide release, disassembly bar, mag release, and pins, all TiN anodized, XGrip extended grip on an ETS 9 round clear magazine, and all internals polished and hand fitted. I now have an AmeriGlo I-Dot Tritium Night Sight Set installed. Easily a $1,000 gun, if you could buy one like this.

    LOL, if I were running Glock I would buy out Polymer80 and make their frame the standard on all the Glock Models. They are that much better.

    It only takes about an hour to build one and that's me, I'm sure others can do it in half that time. The Polymer 80s, for the most part, come with the necessary jig. I don't see as there is a real cost saving advantage. To me the advantage is they are fun to build, they have absolutely no paper trail and a they do feel better feel to grip than original Glocks. Don't get me wrong I own many original Glocks, often carry them and think they are one of the most dependable poly guns made.

    Do you guys who are into the Glock polymer 80s still feel the same over the nearly completely redesigned Gen5 Glocks? The finger grooves are gone and the texturing changed, there are Mag grab arcs cut at the base of grips, etc. They also used the “X” grip concept for the Gen5s. I gave my son one last year for his birthday (Gen5 G19) and he loves it. I personally don’t own anything except Gen4 Glocks but other than mods on grips and changing out barrels and swapping for night sights, I am fully satisfied with them.

    Personally, I still like the ergo's of the Polymer80s better. The Gen5 has some small changes internally, including a much better recoil spring and a change in the ejector assembly, but I still like the Gen3 internals on the Polymer80. Generally, I swap the plastic recoil spring guide for a steel one, swap the trigger shoe for an aluminum one, like a Keneti-Tec or Suarez Face Shooter, A NDZ anodized aluminum mag release, a Ghost connector, a Ghost extended slide release, and whether Glock or Polymer80 it gets metal sights. Other than the internal changes, for the rest of the parts, I grind off all the rough edges and polish everything.

    Before I started building Polymer80's, I picked up a Glock Gen3 G23 LEO trade in for $300. It was in very good shape, showing very little wear on the slide and barrel, but the frame had turned slick from years of carrying, and the front sight was squashed from holster carry. After I got into stippling, and after I had stippled a couple of the Polymer80 frames, I decided to just see what I could do with that old Glock frame. I took off all the finger grooves, under cut the trigger guard some more, and dug out a divot on either side in front of the disassembly lever. Then I laid out a pattern for stippling. I used a custom tip I made and did it in a pattern I call Chainmail, then I stippled the front of the trigger guard and also stippled inside of those divots so it gives your off hand fingers a place to hold. It is now in my EDC rotation and one of my favorite carry pieces. I also carry my Polymer80s too.
