Mid-October Freebie! Polymer 80, 80% Glock Lower
Sometimes, you have to work for your Freedom.
We are stepping up the game all the way ‘round here at ReloadOne.com. Next month’s two HUGE freebie chances are for BASE 12 Members and Free Readers alike!
If you are a DIY kind of Second Amendment Advocate, you will know that you are, PERMITTED BY LAW, to build a gun for yourself for personal use. Please see this link on the ATF website for more information. As you also know, we here at ReloadOne.com are just about as Pro-American Gun Rights as they come, so you having the ability to build your own non-serialized gun is one of the greatest freedoms we still have available to us.
If you have the gumption and can follow some detailed instructive videos, you can build yourself a sweet pistol that will last a lifetime. So get your shade-tree gunsmithing hat on, you’re going to need it!
From Polymer80 themselves:
My name is David Borges, co-founder of Polymer80, Inc. Our mission at Polymer80 is to provide you with firearms products and accessories that you participate in the build process, making the project fun and giving you the greatest satisfaction when using our products because you know that you built the firearm with your own hands.
Overview: This frame is designed as an 80% frame, and includes all the necessary end mill bits and drill bits, and Jig to assist completing your pistol project accurately. Most people use a drill press with a cross vise to mill out the product, many folks have drill presses sitting in their garages, or can find someone who has one available to borrow. The frame accepts Glock17 9mm slides, as well as the Glock 40 caliber slide. The Smith and Wesson 40cal slide is also compatible with the Sig357 barrel configuration, which essentially gives you 3 different calibers to choose from.
Unlike the Glock, this frame includes a uniquely extended beaver-tail, and most notably a 1911 pistol grip rather than the standard glock styled pistol grip. Even better, this pistol grip includes a built in flared magwell for speed loading. This feature will surely be a favorite among competition shooters who require speed and accuracy.
Finally, the areas that need to be milled out to complete this project include:
- The barrel bridge
- The top rails of the receiver
- The slide guide rails
Once completed, you insert the custom locking block which comes with the kit, it provides additional metallic rails up front.
GlockStore provides a great video on building and finishing the Polymer80 Glock lower receiver.
