My second Polymer 80 build - OD Green V2

26724 49
So couple notes on the V2 build.

1. The front block was a BEAR to get installed, the trick ended up being FREEZING the bock, then using a sharpie to help create space, after that, perfect fit!

2. Rear rails lined up perfectly, no issues at all.

3. Used parts from a Lone Wolf kit and had issues, all issues worked out when I installed Glock OEM components.

4. Milling seemed to go much smoother. I'm sure it's just because I'd done it before and was more confident.

5. The Brownells slide does NOT have a channel liner. Bought the tool to install and glad I did. I don't think I'd have been able to install without it.

6. I used the sight pusher tool for the first time and it was sooooo much easier! I bought the NCSTAR (blue one) off of Amazon and it's hefty, easy to use and well built. It WILL get used enough to justify the ($39) purchase price.

Build List:
  • Frame: OD Green V2
  • Slide: Brownells G17 slide with window
  • Barrel: Lonewolf G17 Threaded, bead blast finish
  • Slide Kit: LoneWolf and OEM
  • Frame Kit: LoneWolf and OEM
  • Sights: Ameriglo Hackathorne
  • Thread protector: Backup Tactical
























Any questions, let me know! Happy building!

Looks good. I've been toying with the idea of getting one. Only issue is my only gen 3 I have left if my vickers 19. Maybe I'll get a 80%lower and then a slide.

I am digging the grey frames and the fde frames. I'd like to build a G17 since I don't have one yet. It's the one size I skipped over.

Are the jigs multi use? Or are they a one and done type of thing?

Everything you need to build the frame comes int he kit. Now the only thing you'll have to buy for the lower, is the lower parts kit. It really is incredibly simple to be honest. And fun! I built my first one in a couple hours, the second one, my daughter helped (21) and now she's building her own.

Great question, I ran stock GLock mags and ETS 17rd mags. All flawless. I'm really impressed with the ETS mags. I've been running them in my G19 and P80 build as well. Not one issue, and having them cheaper, lifetime warranty, clear, etc. Not a thing to complain about.

I have PMags for the G19 and they've functioned flawlessly as well. But for me, at the price, and the clear factor, the ETS make more sense. I've been able to pick them up at $15 and even cheaper.

Took my P80 out today. Still breaking it in and having issues. Stove piped once and I think I might have to run a lighter spring with the compensator.

I'm probably gonna polish my rails first and see how that goes.
