80% Glock build costs

Is there a better deal out there?

As of today 2/4/17

Midway USA

Spectre 80 lower ( $120) + 4 17rd MAGpul Magazines($48) + Shipping = $175


GunBroker

G17 Gen 3 Upper + lower parts kit + Shipping = $470


=$645 total

Yes. I know its cheaper to buy one new, but not by much. Especially if you have to add Tax + Check Fee+ FFL transfer etc.

LOL, can not receive those 17 rnd mags in MD

IF you want money savings, then 80% is NOT the way to go. Built two so far, thinking about a third with the mechtech CCU for PCC division.

Between small parts (upper and lower), slide, barrel... you are spending above what a new one would cost. You can shop around and find deals and maybe put it together for less then new; but its going to take awhile. I waited over 9months for the cost of slides to come back down to earth, finally fell upon two deals and jumped on them for completed slides.

Brownells has them on sale for $120 right now.

For a parts kit, it would be cheaper to find someone selling a full Glock out of state and pay them to destroy the frame and just send you the parts (or they can keep it for a gun buyback).

The Glock 19 one has steel rear rails. I'm debating pre-ordering one since they're $121 on Brownells with a dealer account.

I picked up the same lower for $99 from Midway during a sale last year. Still haven't built it out.

Magpul mags are the easiest way to go (can be purchased out of state, cheaper than Glock factory mags and work really well). The slide is really the expensive part. You can find barrels from Lone Wolf, PSA, etc. on sale for $99.

Police seized and destroyed guns are also a good source of parts.

For real? That's awesome, I might actually get one if that's true. I wonder how much of a PITA it is to mill?
