Polymer80 Smooth Compact Lower (ReadyMod)
Ratings & Reviews
I used a Glock 23 kit to complete my build. I had a little trouble getting the trigger pin to go in, I eventually ran the bit all the way thru, After that the pin went in, still a snug fit. The slide to frame fit was really tight, and the slide would be about 1/4in from closing all the way after releasing all the way from the rear, just a slight push with my thumb would close it all the way.I just oiled the rail's really good, and cycled the slide.100 time's maybe more. it got to where I could lock the slide, just push the slide release and the slide would fully close. So I thought it would work perfectly.The next day I bought 2 box's of white box Winchester JHP 40 S&W, for the first 4 shot's it worked perfectly, then for the next 3 shot's I had to push the slide closed, after that I fired about 50 rd's without an issue. Soon I will go back with WD-40 and fine grit sandpaper to clean up the rail's, I used 320 and 600. as of right now I'm extremely happy with this product.
Smooth Poly 80
I've built the full size, and I wanted to try the compact. It was a similar procedure with the various tools (Dremel, file, sandpaper), but the metal rails in the rear make it far better. It was without the fitting challenges of the full size frame. (note to Spectre- please make this change to the full size frame!)
The smooth frame was without flaw, and the supplied jig was as good as I had hoped. I finished with a .40/357 lower parts kit in about 2 hours. The factory Gen3 Glock 32 slide engaged with little difficulty. Some manual racking with lube smoothed everything up, and I look forward to a function test. The only thing left to do is decide between stippling and grip tape.
Great DIY product!
