I just ordered a PF940C and looking forward to getting started. Going to build it with Zev slide and barrel.

I just set a personal record for completing a P80 frame just now. 27 minutes from opening the box to getting the last pin driven in!

End-nipping wire cutters are THE absolute fastest way to get the rail blockers cut off, BTW. End cutters, then clean the flash with a exacto knife, and finish with 1000 grit aluminum oxide.

Any more planned? I'd love to watch your 27 minute video before I dig in on my frames.

All you had to do was say the word, I have a bit of free time before I get back to work.

Anyone got a line on a Glock 22 upper? Hoping for something, especially with President's day weekend.

Would love to pick one up but the ~$350 they are going for online is a little steep (especially when you see deals on entire used G22s for $299).

Would like to be at 3 bills or under. Missed the $299 Centerfire deal

Dont need lower parts kit included but wont complain if they are there for the right price...

For you folks doing this may I ask what the average cost seems to be?

I really want to do one but I am having a really hard time justifying this. As y’all know I can get discounted glocks and after build it seems most of these are past MSRP. I really wanna build one just to do it but I don’t think I can justify 200-300 over a glock price for an hour build lol.

Yes I get the point behind an 80% build and no registration blah blah but that isn’t a concern. I really just wanna build one cuz it’s interesting a cool to me.

Maybe if y’all have a build party I’ll ask to tag along so I can feel like a built one

If you google YT vids, there are a few out there that illustrate this method... seems like a viable and simple way with no special tools.
