    Anyone else building the Polymer 80 Glock pistol ?

    I picked up the Polymer 80 80% Glock pistol frame. Seems to be very well made and constructed right. The grips are huge even for my big nose pickers. I also picked up a G22 .40 upper I plan on completing it with... I`v already built 3 80% 1911s and have 2 80% wide body 2011s in the works. I`m also putting together a Sig Sauer P228/P229. Just wanted to see if anyone else took the plunge and maybe we can share notes ? PEACE, AJ Yes, there is a reoccurring 80% theme going on here !

    I got in on the pre-sale and hung onto my pennies for an open division race gun build.

    Didn't even know that existed, but I will be looking into it now.

    Raider69,
    I have built many of Polymer80's AR15 lowers. They are great!!!
    I have held on jumping into the pistol build due to lack of knowledge of parts to get to complete it. Would you please list your sourcing and other relevant info.
    Thanks.

    I bought everything off of EBay. I picked up 2 new complete Gen3 G17 9mm and a G22 .40 uppers. @ $325 each(wait a little and someone will post uppers with a buy it now price($300-$400), I just saw used uppers bid up to $550 because they did`t want to wait. There`s a big rush on G17 parts right now because of Polymer 80s frame release)....Depending on how you like your trigger you can get a stock setup for as little a $50 with another $25 for pins, slide stop and mag release. And that`s it. All the parts to complete your build. If you go to the Polymer 80 website they give you a parts list of what you need to complete the build. A complete upper is the way to go.. Good luck, AJ
    EDIT: There`s 3 G17 slide on EBay right now as I write this for $420each but that`s a little high. By the time I go back t it I`m sure most will be sold. People know that there`s a big rush for these parts so they`re price gouging ...

    Do they have metal inserts like the factory? My HK plastic gun has them for the rails, for the slide to run on.

    Falls in the same category as building a AK. For the joy of it among other reasons.

    I have to say thats where you are wrong a AK I get a AR I get metal I get polymer I do not I have seen alot of broken polymer AR's its they all break in the same spot. If this has no metal in it then it will break.

    Some people prefer poly over steel and some people like glocks. That's fine. We are all different but you can't deny the fact that building on a 80% has a certain attractiveness when it comes to the paperwork aspect.

    Personally i dont have any love for glocks but if I wanted to learn more about them Id build one.

    It`s really simple, because I can ! Why do we do any of the stuff we do, because we can or we like it. Comparing a polymer AR to a polymer Glock, well it`s not even close. How many Glock frames have you seen break ? This is built the same as any Glock frame with metal locking block and metal rail to run on. I`m not a huge Glock fan but I thought I`d give it a try. They`re not the #1 pistol in the world for nothing ? If you saw my OP you`d see I build a lot of 80% pistols. Sure I can buy one from a store or I can build something with my hands and take real pride in what I`m doing.
    When I rode my first motorcycle I could have gone out the HD dealer and just bought something off the showroom floor or I could have built my 56 wishbone framed PanHead like I did. I guess it`s whatever floats your boat.

    This one`s not mine but you could`t tell them apart if you tried..DSC02725.jpg Me and my daughter next to my showroom FatBoy..2011-07-28 12.16.01 (2).jpg I like my PanHead much more
