    Default 80% Glock Lower Legal?

    Greetings... Need to know if there are any laws preventing me from buying a 80% Glock frame, finishing the frame, and then shooting said gun at the range?

    thanks

    Can you legally possess a firearm?

    If so, you are good to go.

    I carry my poly 80 (within my legal means I do have my ltcf) the only laws preventing that would be if you were prohibited from owning and or transporting firearms otherwise you are well within your right to do so. That being said if your actually carrying as I do be ready to be able to defend the fact that it's not serialized to uninformed "officials" who may not completely understand the laws regarding making your own firearm.

    the Poly 80 is exactly what I am looking at... do you think the frame is ergonomically superior to the Glock frame?

    I think I would like the Grip a lot more..

    If you can legally buy/own a gun you can legally build your own in PA.

    *Just my personal choice but if I have homemade guns they don't leave my property. YMMV

    A '1911' grip angle might feel better, but the aggressive Glock angle helps lock your wrist under recoil to mitigate muzzle rise.

    Regardless, you should definitely build one out. Or two.

    I hate my Glock. Can't shoot it for shit.
    I want to build one just for the "EFF YOU .gov" factor, but haven't been motivated to do it yet because... "Glock".

    I didn't realize they offered different grips.

    I also just found out that there are 80% frames for other models of guns besides Glock.

    the poly 80 is not a glock grip angle ergo not an actual glock , it's basically what the glock should have been (my opinion mind you). If you get a chance to hold one of the frames I'm betting you will feel the difference.
