    Yet, when it comes to features Polymer 80 has a better initial value when it comes down to it. The P80 gives you better initial value with a more feature rich pistol from jump street. I mean very close in my opinion. Each pistol has its strength and weakness but, in this contest one has to reign supreme.

    I know I am sacrificing the name brand of Glock and the product quality I expect from the brand. When it comes down to it Polymer 80 has a more feature rich pistol out of the box. There are two main reasons why I picked the aftermarket P80 over the factory G17 Gen 5. First, the P80 pistol has a better initial feature list than the factory G17 Gen 5. When it comes to specifications of course it was a draw. When it came to features the P80 stood above the G17 in that area.

    The additions of the undercuts, and stipple you would have to pay extra for to get those done aftermarket. As, a consumer you are getting those stock at no extra cost. Second, you would have to do less on the aftermarket and customization side for your pistol. I know a lot of shooters like to add serrations to the slide, drop in a match grade barrel they prefer or, replace the stock trigger. No, need for extensive work to be done to the frame to get that desired grip and feel.

    I would personally do a little more stipple work but, that is me. For all the reasons I mentioned before. At the end of the day I would choose the P80 cause it gives me more bang for my buck.

    Which would mean potentially less aftermarket work and greater savings on the front end and back end. I will admit I have some reservations about owning a complete aftermarket pistol.

    Polymer 80 will be using OEM parts for their P80 pistols so they will be of good quality. Yet, and still I am kind nervous about having a complete aftermarket build. Even in light of those concerns I would take the dive and purchase a P80 pistol. What pistol would you choose? Do you have any reservations about owning a complete aftermarket pistol?

    Polymer80 Build Kits

    If you are reading this to see if a Polymer 80 Glock is easy to build then let me answer you now. Yes, it is. It is very easy to do, and I believe anyone can do it. It took me a few hours, and a little bit of sanding but now it runs like a champ. If you are on the fence just take the dive and do it. Most of us will likely be building a Glock 17 or I went with the On sale now at Rockey Brass! The Polymer 80 Glocks utilize Gen 3 parts, which are quite common and easy enough to find.

    The Glock kit included an extended magazine release and slide lock. It lacks finger grooves, which is fantastic. As you know America does it better.

    All of these lower frame changes make for a more ergonomic and easier handling Glock. The Polymer80 grip angle is more comfortable to me, but that is admittedly subjective. One thing I love about the Polymer80 Glock is the addition of the beavertail. A problem I run into with Glocks is slide bite.

    If I hold the gun nice and hide the slide will bite me every round and eventually break the skin. The Polymer 80 frame does not deliver the same slide bite. The added beavertail protects you from that, as well as providing you more leverage to fight muzzle rise.

    Rarely will the frame influence accuracy. It does make the gun more comfortable to shoot and easier to control. I think Polymer 80 addressed the majority of criticisms the Glock gets. Even Glock eliminated finger grooves on the latest generation of Glock handguns. The downside to going with a non-standard frame is the aftermarket. You lose compatibility with many different holsters, as well as different frame accessories.

    Some internals like triggers will still be plenty compatible. However, accessories like magwells will no longer fit. The other downside is reliability.

    You need to ask yourself do you trust your skills as a gunsmith? The good news is you can purchase a complete Poly 80 frame but that will require an FFL transfer on top of all the parts you need to assemble the gun. The Polymer80 Glock is a fun project, and it allows you to produce your very own gun. To me, this is just a project. To some, this might be the easiest legal way to own a handgun.

    With various state laws making it harder and harder to purchase a handgun, building your own might be your only choice. Let me know if you built your own Polymer80 and what you think about these guns. Stay tuned to The Gear Bunker and be a part of this all veteran-owned website.
