    That is cool. I like the design, including the built-in flared magwell. Guess I know what's going to be going on my list. Got to love American ingenuity. The more the anti's push, the more the dreamers and patriots can push back. Even if some folks may not like the style/design, it's a darn fine way to extend your finger to those that would seek to take our rights.

    Looking more closely at the design, I wonder about the rear rails being polymer though. I wonder how that would hold up over time? It's good that the front rails are metal, but the rear rails would concern me.

    the rails on my Kahr are 98% polymer. There is just a tiny piece of metal folded over the rear edges

    I've never owned a Kahr, so I've not run into their design before. Seems to be holding up well? I don't know how many rounds you have through it, but if it works for Kahr, then that's probably enough history in that design to make the 80% version reliable.

    I think it is good enough for my carry. Reliable and accurate and cheep so if it gets stuck in a evidence locker after a lawful self defense use I wont really care.

    rough pricing for parts to complete. $350 for complete slide and $75 for a glock lower parts kit assuming it takes all glock parts

    I just started a new job this week and it just so happens, it is with a injection mold company making parts for Boeing. The entire injection mold process is pretty cool. The thing that costs the most money are the molds themselves. One mold for a window frame in a 777 can cost well over $300,000.00. I have a couple of there AR receivers and I am happy with them. So I will be following this closely. Cause I want one. I will put it next to my TM 80% 1911.

    LOL.... that was exactly what I was thinking reading through the prior posts.

    Great minds think alike! ;)



    They'd probably sell more of the Glock versions in G19 rather than the G17... just sayin'.

    I'm no Glock expert, but would it be possible to chop the end off and throw a G19 slide on it? Are the internal parts on a G17 in different spots than a G19?

    Based on their replies to questions on youtube, it will just work with G17 parts

    Im starting to think about parts before this kit arrives. Who are the good glock replacement part companies? Like how Wilson or Ed brown are for 1911 parts but for glock? Not looking to break the bank

    I saw that in an email from Rainier Arms yesterday, interesting indeed.
    they included the compatibility chart. polymer80-spectre-80-pistol-frame-pre-order-p80-spectrekit-by-polymer80-bb0.jpg

    Hey, I appreciate toys, baubles and "hobbies" as well anyone else.
    But.. why do people hate rails? Why do people continue to insist upon false economy, especially when it comes to guns?
    Spend a bit more (with proper research) and you'll get at least 200,000 trouble free rounds down range.

    I like the idea, cant wait to see what you guys come up with

    I wish they would come out with a G20 frame, Id buy one and turn it into a 10mm Mechtech

    Pretty simple for me - 80% lower, no registration, no serial number. If nothing else, it's a middle finger to the grimy gun grabbers. That said, if I get worried about metal rails, I'll take a look at those 80% 1911 lowers, like the one Bolus built.
