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.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?
