    Bump for more replies. I have had a finished OD green lower hanging on my bench for almost a year. Still not sure how fancy or not I want to go with it.

    A little more than buying a factory Glock

    Anyone have a line on good price for a complete G19 upper? I ended up with a brand new Lonewolf Alpawolf lower in a trade and can't stand to have half a gun staring at me every time I open the safe. All the nice slides I have seen cost as much as buying a complete gun so it is hard to justify.

    At this point 80% Glock clones do not save you money. They are just fun to build. Factory Glocks are actually an amazing value for what you get IMHO.

    No kidding. I didn’t buy an 80% lower to save money, but more for the cool factor. Little did I know that I should have just bought a cool aftermarket slide for my 19. I would have saved money in the long run.

    Brownells makes nice slides at a good price point. But you still have to get a slide parts kit and a barrel so you’re looking at a few hundos at the least.

    No doubt the factory Glocks are great for the money. I'm in the process of finishing a p80 and it will be the only one I bother with. Despite hunting for deals it came out pretty expensive compared to a factory Glock.

    Here is the breakdown:

    80% Lower - $75
    Holosun 507c - $245
    LPK - $45
    UPK - $70
    3.5 lb Trigger Connector - $15
    Threaded Barrel - $60
    Supressor Height Sights - $50
    Barrel Thread Protector - $5
    Brownells RMR Cut Slide - $172
    RIT Dye - $2

    Total - $739

    Without the red dot it would have been closer to $480, which is still more than a factory Glock 19.

    So I was wrapping up assembling my p80 and I ran into a snag. The takedown lever spring does not sit far enough into it's slot to clear the recoil spring/guide rod.

    Waiting to hear back from the manufacturer.

    I am assuming you gave it a good push? I had to use a flat blade and some oomph to get it to sit in there...
