We’re forgetting that for Muggles, Memorial Day is a time of great sales. We received a very nice email from Polymer80, leading with the right sentiment. We already had a Polymer80 pistol-lower unboxing post roughed out for this week, so it was on our mind, too. We just didn’t check email ’til this morning. Here’s our excerpt from their email — plus the all important code.

As we mentioned, we have two Polymer80 Glock-off frames here and were planning an unboxing post. We weren’t sure where we were going to get parts (we were probably going to just strip our own G17), and so we’ll check out Trick Glocks, too, but only after this post goes live. (We’ve got a thing about taking advantage of our readers. To be specific, we don’t do it!).


We’ve just been to parts seller Trick Glocks’s website, and we’re not impressed.

It looks like they spent a lot on the polish and shine. Then when we went to actually buy stuff, the sales cart engine is… unfinished. It looks like it’s working in general, because some things are selling out, but after a flaky dance with registration and prove-you’re-real and emails to click on, it then hissed at us:

Your City must contain a minimum of 4 characters.

We can assure them, our town contains lots of characters; our very dead-end street has more than four characters. But the name of the town has only three, which is not all that rare in this part of the world. At least 14 towns in the Northeast (NH, NY, MA, ME, VT) bear three-letter names, often since some time in the 17th Century. We were jolly well here first, but apparently our money’s no good with him.

To put it in three-letter words: Him? Huh. Fie. Heh.


And the contact page on their web site doesn’t work, either….

That 80% Glock frame is fugly… but intriguing. Very intriguing.

I suppose there’s not much wrong with it that some custom stippling wouldn’t fix.

I’ve had good luck with Glock OEM and the “house brand” parts from Lone Wolf Distributors: http://www.lonewolfdist.com

In addition to small parts, purchased a “house brand” slide from them for mounting an RMR on my G19 and have been happy with it. Another plus (to me) is the slides & barrels can be purchased without any writing/marking/logo.
