Amazing price...especially after Polymer 80 discovered people were telling them to shove the AFT kit up their A$$! They were charging the same price to make you do the work as it was to buy a serialized PFC9 already put together. Shows how a great company idea with 80% build kits can go idiotic! Maybe they will start listening to what people want for the next line of Poly 80 items.

Maybe someone can help me understand.

I remember when Glock factory frames were selling for $75. I thought about grabbing some but at the time slide/barrel combinations were in the $300s. I figured by the time I transferred the frame ($20) plus added the trigger bar, firing pin and other parts I would be at or above the $425 that I could buy a new pistol at.

Now slides/barrels are over $400 and P80 frames are $140(?). It just doesn’t make sense to me. I completely understand the draw to the project. But to spend so much more? I just can’t understand the premium over a new factory Glock.

I should preference this by saying, I have spent thousands on collectible Glocks and many thousands on a custom rifle. Maybe, I’m just not seeing a completed P80 as a premium gun?

Thanks

The grip doesn't have the palm swell on the back. Most 80% frames have straight grip and there is that ghost quality to them.

I bought a PFC9 Polymer 80. I bought it as a ready to use Poly 80 firearm that I could budget money into it a little at a time to make it custom for me. Has worked out very well, until...

After about 500-600 rds I started to get ejected rds to the face and some FTE. Today I received my Gen 4 ejector, # 30274, removed the OEM 336 ejector and installed ejector 30274 it and range checked the firearm..... is 4.0. No FTE and ejection distance to the right is great. Love it when a plan comes together!!!

It's not always about the destination that matters, sometimes it's the journey. To take parts, form & fit them until you get to the end, then more fit and polish until it goes bang can be more satisfying than bang bang bang for 2 hours.

The PFC9 is doing well. A few after market parts here and there, nothing that made me take out a second mortgage. Most of the real mods are inside the frame but a threaded barrel and cheap compensator made more of a difference than I thought they would make. Still feel buying the serialized fully assembled firearm and mods done little at a time was the correct thing to do. Think I am over the builds for a while.. looking for the best deal on a Glock 19 Gen 5 for my next purchase is my plan right now. Buttttttt things do change!

There are times when the journey is more satisfying 😌 than reaching the destination.
You do not build a P80 to get a cheaper gun but to have a custom one that says: "I did that". The warranty is now on you, Chucky.
