P80
Not what I was expecting.

I hope this doesn’t cause copyright issues with polymer 80.

I saw something on YouTube about a guy building a mustang that got nick named elenore . It wasn’t really a copy of the movie car, just a similar color.
He lost the car, a bunch of money and had to delete his videos.

I can’t think of how many times polymer 80s have been referred to as p80s.

Handled one of these yesterday, not impressed. I guess I don't fully understand the nostalgia and I've owned 3 Glocks, so not new to the brand. IMO, the mag release is terrible in terms of ergonomics (at least in my hand) and the mag barely drops. Guess a "collector" will take that one home; didn't notice the price.

I would love to get a couple myself.
Be nice to have one to collect.
I would put the 2nd on a polymer80 frame.
Blasphemy!!!!

I’m thinking of getting either 3 (consecutive serial) for myself and my boys (leaving them all stock) when they are old enough or just 1 and turning it into a P80C :animlol:

Technically it should look like your 17 pre-C with the elongated oval cut out and 4 ports, no?
Excellent point!! Absolutely correct.

Is it just me or does the P80 retro appear to have a bigger grip than the Gen 1 G17?

I’ve always felt that the Gen 1 G17 had slimmer grip than the other gens.
It sure feels like it to me in the hand. The old 17 feels better/slimmer. Ill get around to taking some measurements soon. I very well could also just be crazy. Any opinion on this Jayman?

I’ve always wanted a gen 1. I know the first run is 10,000 pistols.. gonna be hard to get. I hope they do a retro 19 as well. I plan on grabbing up a 17 and would grab up a 19 as well.

Shooting a replica Gen1 19 I imagine would not be as exciting as shooting the real deal. To load up 33 rounds of Federal HST1 124g +P and fire as many down range as you can as quickly as you can would be hard to replicate the excitement and the nausea.

Just a heads up for anyone wanting one, I went into Smoky Mountain Guns and Ammo in Sevierville, TN today during lunch. Goof news is they had a p80 on display..... Bad news is they were asking $699 for it.... However, I asked how many they had and I was told "several". As in 10+ is what I was told. If someone is dying to have one, you can call them and they will be glad to ship one. Their website is a little behind showing their stock and not always accurate, but they do have a good number of them in stock.
