Yoinks! That's crazy... Don't remember it being that high.
But, I ordered mine a while back.

Looks like they've got a promotion currently, that gives you free shipping on "qualifying" orders of $25, if that helps.

(Still paying close to the same price as just the book plus shipping, but at least this would give you another item or two, to offset the expense)

Thanks Batt. I still have it and havenít listed it yet. The .22LR conversion I ordered was the wrong one so I had to send it back. Of course then I thought hey, maybe I should stick this on a G19 lower and keep it! You canít let good parts go to waste, right?

I'm not sure about "all" but lots of them do. We're supposed to call it polymer, not plastic, so I guess they improved the stuff. Seems to work okay.

All Glocks OEM guide rods are polymer and there are 3rd parties offering SS and tungsten ones as well.

So, what is a ball park cost of all parts needed to complete the G19 build if you already have the frame? Trying to compare build cost vs purchasing assembled one. Thanks

I don't recall if my 17 is a Gen 4 or Gen 5 (yeah, I'm not a Glock-a-phile) but it has a metal guide rod NIB, IIRC. Now you have me wondering.
