Why your Next Build Should be a Polymer 80 Pistol

The venerable Glock®  is one of the world’s most popular and trusted handguns, and for good reason: It’s reliable, accurate, ergonomic, chambered in a plethora of cartridges, and it boasts a high capacity with plenty of convenient features. If you were on the fence about purchasing a Glock® , don’t be – they’ve built platforms catering the competition shooter, the concealed-carrier, the LEO, and the enthusiast alike. But what if you just built your pistol and made it your own? Let’s go over why your next build should be a Polymer 80 Pistol.

Building a Pistol is Super Affordable

The Glock®  platform has always afforded shooters low prices on the gun store’s shelves – but you’re still paying a premium. You have to foot extra cash to cover transfer fees, the store’s own margins, and extra taxes.

Building your Polymer 80 pistol, however, costs a fraction of the retail price. The  Pistol 80 lower kits cost only $160 and they include a full frame with plenty of upgrades. Combine a kit with an upper and parts kit, and you’ve easily saved hundreds.

Building Your Pistol Means Customizing It

Everyone wants a handgun that’s tailored to them. Some want a lighter trigger, some want a fluted, threaded barrel for a compensator. Others like to keep things simple, OEM-spec. When you build your own piece using one of the Polymer 80 Pistol kits, you get to customize your new handgun from scratch.

That means saving even more money by investing in only the parts you want, avoiding the needless cost of buying a complete handgun and shelling out even more cash for different components!

Building a Pistol is So Simple, Anyone Can do it

If you can legally own and fire a handgun in your state, you can build a pistol at home. It’s so simple that you don’t need any mechanical experience! In fact, finishing your Polymer 80 Pistol  frame with one of these kits takes less than 15 minutes – you’ll spend more time opening the kit and learning the (very simple) process.

Building a Pistol is 100% Legal

Yes, this whole project is 100% legal by Federal Law. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms specifically allows private citizens to build firearms at home, for personal use, without the intent of selling it or manufacturing it for sale.

That means you don’t have to deal with the gun store, the PICS check, the endless waiting, or all the fees. And the best part: The Polymer 80 Pistol are not considered firearms! The frame in your kit is not complete and is therefore not legally considered a firearm.

That means your kit ships straight to your front door, no red tape necessary! Simply order the Polymer 80 Pistol kit, wait for it to show up, and get to building! We offer kits for the G17, 19, 23, 26, 27, and 34 – all just $160!

Each kit also includes everything you need to finish your frame:

  •         Finishing Jig
  •         Drill Bits
  •         End Mill Bit
  •         Blank Serialization Plate
  •         Stainless Locking Block Rail System
  •         Stainless Rear Rail Module
  •         Hardened Pins for LBRS and RRM
