Has anybody seen these yet? I was at SHOT back in January and a little outfit called Polymer 80 had a little table-top booth set up in some obscure part of the exhibit hall. I was intrigued by them and quickly ordered a pair of these for delivery within a couple of weeks. Well they never came within those couple of weeks and I forgot about them until they arrived in the mail last week. I quickly got to work milling out and drilling the frame. Took my time on the final fit and finish and voila, I have a couple of cool looking Glocks. I did one up as a G34 and the other as a G17. I am heading to the range after work today if the weather holds and will report back with my results.

Never heard of them, but interested in your results. Pretty cool looking with the integrated magwell. I dig the grip and flat beavertail as well.

Just got home from the range. Fired 100 rounds between the two. Both ran fine with no failures. There's a sharp edge at the bottom of the trigger guard near the grip that is uncomfortable for me. It rubs on my middle finger up . I might have to round that off for my taste. Other that, they seem to operate just fine.

You have any contact information on how to get those? What is the $ savings from buying a complete pistol?

There's no savings. I checked ebay for complete Glock uppers and plain stock uppers are going for $500 alone LOL. It is cool to build these though and they look pretty cool. Having no serial number on the frame feels a little sketchy to me but I guess that's the point.

www.polymer80.com/Polymer80-80-Pistol-Frame-V1-Black_p_1788
$150 for the lower
$90 for LPK
$350 for complete upper
Costs about $100 more than a factory Glock

Thank you both.

I'll have to pass, then. Last thing I have time for is standing at the mill with it costing me money.

The pistol looks very cool, though! up

Cool idea but kinda pointless if you can buy a factory Glock cheaper
