Hey guys! I’m still around, just been busy trying to become a SME in all things Glock and P80 builds. Spending a lot of time on reddit helping others with their builds and troubleshooting their issues. Currently working on two for myself and waiting on a shipment of parts from the mothership. I’ll post up some pics as I complete the ones I’m working on, then that should tide me over for a while. I have an 80% 9mm 1911 frame ordered and that will be one of my next projects. I also have a regular govt 1911 and an AR9 in the works…too many irons in the fire. I tend to do that.
Looking forward to the pics!
Glock builds are easy there’s really not much to them
Once you get to the 1911 builds that’s when your really building
What jigs and tools are you using for theses builds
I’m finding milling the pocket on an AR10 is a challenge right now
I buggered up my first Poly80 a bit, JB weld fixes them nicely
I’ve already done several P80 builds, these are just the last two that I have planned for now. I’ve also already built a few 1911s, but not a 9mm one. Using a Stealth Arms frame with Clark/Para cut. I use the Stealth Arms jig to cut the rails and seat and drill the holes.
1911’s are a challenging build.
With J-B Weld . . . . Do I really need the 80% in the first place??
wow, that’s industrious
The RTF slide w/threaded barrel are a nice touch
Trigger safety seems a bit futile
Heard they are coming for these kits, who’s gonna come out with a 70% kit till the legislation catches on in a few years lol
We need an 80% DIY “Sue the ATF” kit. Just fill in the blanks and drop in the mail. Maybe put one in every P80 box.
I agree, but did you see the latest gun gripes? knocking on doors for them p80 kits. Makes me want to make one and I have minimal tools, have a vice and a drill…
As long as you don’t buy the “full” kit–which is out of stock or not for sale–you should be fine. Will just need to hunt around a bit on Ebay and Gunbroker, etc. for all the necessary completion parts.
The whole issue at hand with the complete build kits is that the ATF is now redefining what constitutes a firearm. The frame is still an 80% frame and parts are still parts. For some reason, the ATF is now considering the packaging of these kits all together as a firearm. The ATF claim is that Polymer 80 did not submit the entire kit for consideration. It shouldn’t matter. Parts are still parts and paperweights are still paperweights until they are completed with the “milling” process. Another piece of this is that the ATF had a felon order a kit and he received it. I still don’t see a problem with that, but it would be illegal for the felon to complete the receiver. That’s on the felon.
It’s just another step toward more gun control. Leftists are ramping up for when they gain more control in January.
Still hoping for 4D chess, another Supreme Court case, martial law, military tribunals, revolution, civil war, secession, asteroid strike, North Korean missile, UFO landing, Second Coming, literal Kraken, Krampus, time-traveling General Washington and his 25th Century Continental Army, etc.
