Nice slide, I did the stock slide as much as I wanted to go all out on one. Installed an old front Fiber Optic sight I had....still deciding on what I want on it. Inside, a Timney competition trigger (
) goes in soon as it arrives. I have a Black Yikes connector and L2D spiral firing pin installed.
I think I'll make some significant progress over the week and upcoming weekend.
Which lower and upper parts kits did you use? OEM Glock parts? Or the P80 parts? I have the P80 parts.
Over on the MGB (Marine Gun Builder) forum, they all prefer the OEM Glock parts. But, they are very scarce right now. And, if you can find them at all, you're paying double and triple the price. ~$100 for an OEM lower parts kit. Crazy.
I think I'm sticking with the P80 parts for now. I can always upgrade later when availability and prices are better. But, I was curious about what you used.
These are the rails from Rook Tactical. HUGE difference between them and the standard rails.
One of the common problems with the standard rear rails is the holes don't line up exactly with the holes in the frame. So, some "smithing" / fitting is necessary. Sure enough when I tried in the regular rear rail, there was a bit of metal visible through the hole.
I have the P80 parts. So much talk about the close tolerances of the P80 frames. You made the right choice in the tool for removing the tabs! Looks good. I like the gray frame better than the black also. BE AWARE of the pins you use. The upper block pin comes in two different types... one that is barbell and one that is Strike Ind with grooves that are like the trigger pin below it. I did not have any experience with Glock 19 type release pin spring as I only have a 43x Glock. Did not know I had to mess with the slide release to ensure the pin is loose of the release spring or you will mangle the spring and it is not a pretty sight! Same for release of the trigger pin from the round cut out in the Release also.
