Not bad - about the same cost as 3 Glock police turn ins in the caliber of your choice.

Poly80 builds are necessarily the cheapest but if you go the route of upgrading a Glock, the price tag becomes more reasonable. I've done the 19 and now i'm in the process of building the 17.

That seems like a big key here. If you just want a "stock features and functioning glock" then buy one at a store. If you are looking to have a custom glock, then an 80 looks to make more sense. You will be replacing the barrel, slide, trigger, etc, so why pay for them 2x. Just buy the ones you want as you build your 80%.

The other option is to upgrade all those parts on your Glock and take the leftover stock pieces and put them on an 80 frame. Hate to see them go to waste!

Replacing the barrel and slide have nothing to do with using a P80 frame or not though. If you want to build a Glock from parts you can always buy a Glock frame instead of a P80.

That argument sorta makes sense if your reason for "customizing" is for looks and feel, but not so much if you're looking for improved function (i.e. reliability and accuracy). Of course, a lot of the things people change on Glocks these days are not really "upgrades" anyway, more like side steps at best for a different look.

Incase anyone is interested, the Magpul G19 Gen3 magwell fits on the P80-compact without any modifications. I did notice that the plug hole isn't exactly the same area as the OEM frame, so once you get it screwed in, make sure the screw is flush with the P80-compact frame grip and you should be good. If you screw it in too far, the magwell doesn't fit properly and falls out.

The Magpul G17 Gen3 Magwell, did not fit on the P80-Full, you'll probably have to file down the magwell plug, but should work after that. Although, I did not try this, but was test fitting it.

I ended up with just an extra rail since they are different from glock OEM and p80.

This thread convinced me to finally bite the bullet and go buy one. I ordered a frame and picked up a slide and mag well today.

Slide isn't going into full battery. It gets caught up as if you were gonna pull back the slide to take it off.

I think my rear rails or front rails aren't level/even. :angryfire:

Slide goes on fine, but once I get to the rear rails it becomes uneven and have to pull the slide up to make it fit the rear rails. After that, it's a very tight fit. Gonna try messing around with my OEM slide + P80 frame and see if the problem still persists.

I encountered the same problem, but to a lesser degree. The slide would close all the way but not as firmly as on a stock frame. That's part of what I'm referring to in the comments about reliability above.

SMH... :facepalm2: I figured it out!

My front locking rail wasn't seated properly which caused the slight slant/angle. I disassembled and did a little filing to my frame (Had some high spots), and re-positioned the front locking block/rail and it works fine now. Tapped it down with my hammer and held it down as I pushed the pin in and it sat flush. Took me around 3 hours to figure it out, and I thought my rails were messed up! DOH!
