FYI

Gunxperts. In Winter Park has ten P80 kits in stock just now. If you’re interested and hesitant to get on a “list” by having one mailed to your home address this might be a good source. 321-972-5673

Actually they appear to be larger than real life on a non black firearm. The controls are fairly flat so they do not protrude much to interfere with a holster either. The controls are proportional to the firearm size in my opinion. Here is mine. View attachment 72182
Did you fill in the debossed branding / labels (with white)? Or did it come that way? Just curious.

That’s easily done with nail polish or some use crayons (probably the Marines) to fill it in with whatever color suits your mood.

I know. I was just curious if that was factory or owner-mod.

That is a to much time on my hands mod!!! Done with some craft paint, scrapped off with a credit card and then hand buffed. Like the other one I did>>>

Yeah, if anyone knows about crayons, that'd be Caleb. :p

(Just messin' with you.)

EDIT: I used yellow nail polish on my Glock (carry, i.e., hollow-point) magazines to visually differentiate them from other mags holding FMJ's.
Basically, you put a dot of nail polish over each number, let it dry completely, and use a razor blade to scrape the excess off.
What's left are perfect yellow numbers on a black magazine. Looks great.

Anxiously awaiting the replacement trigger housing. Out for delivery!

Then it will be a sprint to the finish!

Oh, I thought I posted about that. I was polishing the "shelf" as per MGB's recommendation.... applied too much pressure and melted / gouged the plastic. Whoops! :oops:

The channel does make up for the booboo, that’s for sure! I think if you show gun manufacturers that pic…..they will hire you in an instant!

Not a happy camper. Got the whole thing together... by the book, and it's not working. Firing pin won't release on trigger pull. Trigger just bounces. Had to remove the slide backplate to get it apart.

Broke the whole thing down. Tweaked the connector... both ways.... no joy.

I'm ****ing disappointed. Very anti-climactic.

Trying to troubleshoot with some of the guys at the MGB forum.

Out of pure respect, the Glock fanboy decides to keep his mouth shut. :)
But let's go shooting when you get it going!!

Put the loops down. Make yourself a hot chocolate . Take it apart . And reassemble . Any be as simple as a spring arm in the wrong place. John

Got the connector tweaked. Learned that the tweaks are quite subtle! So, trigger is firing and resetting consistently now. Hooray!

Now, I've got to get better sear engagement. Should be 75% or so. I'm getting maybe 50%.

Also ejection is inconsistent with snap caps.

Nothing but frustration with my project today. Spent ALL day and most of the night ***king with it.

I've ordered OEM trigger housing and trigger bar. Paying a premium, of course. This ***king thing is going to drive me to drink!

I was REALLY hoping to shoot it this weekend. But, noooooooooooooooooooooo....
