Building a Glock with a Polymer 80 Pistol vs Buying

PF940C Polymer 80 Compact Pistol Frame and Jig Kit (Glock 19/23)

The Glock is arguably one of the most popular handguns ever made. Millions of Glocks currently in circulation around the world, this handgun is favored by police, military, rescue, and private citizens alike. It’s one of the most wildly durable, reliable, and ergonomic handguns ever made – if you’ve been on the fence, it’s time to buy. But should you buy one off the shelf? Or build your own? Yes, you can do that now. We’re going over building a Glock with a Polymer 80 Pistol Frame vs buying one off the shelf!

Building a Glock Frame is Super Simple

If you hadn’t guessed by now, building a Glock is so easy for one reason: It’s made of polymer! Polymer is incredibly strong yet easy to manipulate, shave, cut, drill, and machine – more than any AR-15 lower receiver or metal firearm.

In fact, finishing your Glock’s frame takes a few minutes! All you need are some drill bits and the jig itself. Our kits include everything you need, including the frame, jig, and drill bits – all you need is a hand drill!

Building Your Own Glock is Incredibly Affordable

Glocks can easily run a few hundred dollars, even for an entry-level piece. Our Polymer 80 Glock and Jig Kits cost a fraction of that, meaning you can potentially save hundreds of dollars and end up with a quality, top-tier Glock that’s just as reliable any handgun bought off the store shelf.

Our Polymer 80 Glock Frames are Top-Tier!

Even though our Polymer80 Glock Frame and Jig Kits are affordable, our Glock frames are not “cheap”. We currently offer kits for the Glock 19, 23, 26, 27, 17, and 34, and each frame includes improved ergonomics and features:

  •         State-of-the-art grip texture
  •         Picatinny/STANAG Compliant Accessory Rail
  •         Blank Serialization Plate
  •         Stainless Steel Locking Block Rail System
  •         Stainless Steel Rear Rail Module
  •         Hardened Pins for LBRS and RRM
  •         Made in the U.S.A.
  •         Lifetime Warranty

What’s more, easy of our Glock frames comes with an extended beavertail, thumb ledge, and double undercut trigger guard for better control and reduced felt recoil.

Building a Glock Requires NO FFL or Paperwork!

Buying a Glock off the shelf means filling out loads of paperwork, waiting for a background, paying a bunch of fees, and possibly waiting a number of days – even weeks – before you can pick up your purchase. That’s not the case with our Glock Frame and Jig Kits.

In fact, building a Glock (or any firearm) requires zero paperwork and no background check. As long as you can legally own a Glock handgun in your state, you can build a Glock at home and it’s 100% legal. Our Glock Frame and Jig Kits even ship to your front door, no FFL transfer or paperwork required!

Building a Glock Takes Less than One Hour

Yes, it really is that simple. Once you receive your Polymer 80 Glock Frame and Jig Kit, you can begin drilling and building immediately. The included instructions and tutorial will guide you along, and total production time takes less than one hour, even for first-time builders!
