Go for it if you want one for other things. I want a drill press once I get a garage but its really not necessary for a poly 80 handgun. they specifically say not to use a drill press for the pin holes and I think most people dont use one at all. Use a hand held drill for the pin holes, then I use a cutting wheel on a dremel to take off most of the tabs and u notch, after that take it down flush with small files and then sand.

Research some Youtube videos before you buy a drill press for the Polymer 80 handgun frames......

A hand drill is all you need for a Polymer80 pistol frame. A bench vise would be nice, but a clamp and a block of wood would work.

When you guys say "hand drill", is this what you mean? https://smile.amazon.com/Schroeder-5...-no-redirect=1

anyone who has gotten one of these are the grips not as angled as the normal glock? I know some replacement frames like lone wolf have a better angle? Also have tehy banned these yet? I am still confused about them trying to.

You could use that, I guess, if you're comfortable with it. I meant a regular 1/4" electric or cordless drill that everyone already has. You're only drilling a half-dozen small holes.
