    I was kind of in the same spot. I wanted to build a 17MOS from scratch. Then I started pricing parts and discovered with my GSSF coupon I might as well buy a brand new one.

    With the ghost gun poly 80 craze, the cost of slides sometimes exceeds complete glocks.
    Go figure.

    If you don't like the front serrations, there's this one...

    Looks like they come from the same shop.

    Who gives a s*** what anyone says purist or otherwise. It's your project and you do as you see fit. I'd grab a slide from Brownells or MidwayUSA and finish the gun. More fun having a complete gun than a Glock frame sitting in a gun safe.

    I just put one of P80Builder's slides on a factory frame. Only issue I had was something catches on the locking block when putting it on. Once on though it seems to function fine. Took it out yesterday for the first time and put 50 rounds through it, shoots fine. The only bad thing is I can't use it for a GSSF match. But I don't shoot in matches anyway.

    They look good.
    The serrations they use are a fine 1911 style.
    I like the coarser Glock style, so I went with a Suarez and they are also at the 21 degree "grip angle" like the 80P.
    I have a pic of it at the front end of this thread.

    I'd better quit before some Bone-Stocker heads explode.

    :D

    Oh yeah that’s in TDC (Tongducheon) damn way before my time. I’m not sure if you keep up with what goes on in Korea still but Yongsan and everything North of the Han river is closing down and moving to Camp Humphreys. I think everyone in Casey and CRC will be moving there as well. It’s the new USAG for USFK (8th Army, 2ID etc) supposively the biggest base in the World outside of CONUS.

    We have 50 percent Bone-Stockers and 50 percent Hotrodders.
    It is your duty (as a GlockTalker) to monkey with the other group.

    I did the same thing, bought a bare G19 frame and built it up.

    I used the Swenson slide already linked to from Midway. It has a Dawson FO front sight and a 10-8 rear sight.

    I used an Agency Arms barrel. All the other parts a tree e OEM except for the SS guide rod.

    I just got an Apex trigger kit and a carry magwell in today but haven't installed them yet.

    I've been shooting/modifying Glocks (and a lot of other guns too) since the 90's. Stock to wild, it's great to have the aftermarket support that there is today.
