Looks like Polymer 80 no longer sells just the plastic frame. I believe they did to begin with but have since gone to complete kits. Each kit comes with the frame, jig, 3 drill bits, 2 rails, and pins. Which runs about $150.

As far as I know, they always came with frame, rails/pins, jig, and bits.
Never seen just the frame.

The AR lowers you can get stand alone

If you watch MIDWAYUSA . COM monthly, they will offer $79.99 specials on the frame kits.

Continue to watch and their Swenson brand of slides will go on sales as well.

Shop around for OEM slide and frame parts kits on sales.

Choose your sites (hardest part of install unless you have a sight pusher)

Add Magpul magazines and you’re GTG.


The problem is not that they are cheap and work, it’s that unless you get everything on super special, a LEO trade in Glock will still be less expensive.

i wonder because one of the reasons i dont really like plastic framed guns is.. plastics easy to damage, or you may want to change something about it, and youre kind of locked into it if you dont want to buy another pistol, go through the 4473, pay a few hundred.. so im wondering if the polymer 80 would be easier to make changes to, or repair without having to go through that drama?

I’ve used JB WELD to fix a gouge in frame that happened when an end mill bit slipped. I dyed the JB black and molded it into the gouge. I then stippled to match original pattern and you couldn’t tell.

The frames are not hard to fix and stipple.

Probably one of the best things about polymer frames, is being able to stipple them.

Easily done, where ever "you" want, and at any level you like.

They sold a single stack frame by itself in 80% not sure if/when they stopped that.

hmm, i think a featureless P80 frame would be a good canvas for doing something like this

i had an idea for a P80 build.. tell me what you think

look at the custom G34 below.. notice how the section of the spring cover that extends beyond the dust cover is chamfered, and tapers up towards the muzzle? i like that look.. you can buy a G19L slide that has that extended spring cover that can be machined for the same tapered nose look and place it on a G19 frame for a G19L that looks more like a miniature G34

I bought a front sight tool and used a mallet to put the rear sight on.

But to each his own. I've tried it both ways and after many years of changing sights on many different pistols, I choose faster, safer and easier route.

But I guess a large rock and a nail turned around could save a few more dollars and that's at least 2.35 MREs one could get.

That's Glock Store's SS80, not a Polymer80 product.

This is the internet - thread drift happens. Feel free to show off & discuss your home built pistol, whichever brand it is.

Or don't.
