New Build - Polymer 80 PF45 10mm

Recommended Posts

I recently completed a build of a Polymer 80 PF45 lower for my Gen2 G20.  I have a Gen 2 G20 and a Gen 2 G21.  I have always thought that the G20/G21 could have a better grip angle.  I just bought a Polymer 80 PF45 lower kit (with trigger) from Rockey Brass.  The build only took about 2hrs with some fitting.  The guns is way more comfortable with the P80 lower.  It shoots very well.  Found a buyer at my gun club for the Gen 2 lower, actually made money on the build.  I am now considering doing the same for my Gen 2 G21.

That's awesome, I has 3rd gen. G20 but I remember that grip was huge and I have big hands. So the grip feels smaller with this kit? By the way I love 10mm!

The grip is way more comfortable than the original.  The grip angle is more 1911 as well.  I just received an order of 10mm ammo from Underwood.  Will try to get out this weekend to shoot it.

Finally took the Poly 80 G20 out this past weekend.  I shot 100rds of Underwood ammo though with zero issues (used Factory barrel (50rds) and 6" Storm Lake ported barrel (50rds). The Storm Lake barrel shot way better than the stock barrel. The grip texture and grip angle felt excellent.  It points like a 1911 now and still shoots 10mm way softer than a 10mm 1911.

It had been a long time since I shot the G20 (5 years or so) and I forgot how much less felt recoil there is compared to the all metal framed guns including the 1911 and S&W 610.  It is now going to be my hiking gun along with my G29. We hike a lot in Shenandoah Nat'l Park and have seen bears on hikes.

This is probably the perfect gun for this. 15 rounds of 10mm is some serious fire power! It definitely feels better to shoot then those all metal 10mm. the glock polymer really does help soak up that recoil. A compensator would probably make it even nicer to shoot!

    • #59  CNJFO HONORS FIVE NJ 2A "HEAVY LIFTERS" DURING BRIEF CEREMONY HELD AT A DIVERSITY SHOOT AT GFH! CNJFO BESTOWS "PATRIOT PIN" TO (5) 2A NJ HEAVY LIFTERS! COLANDRO, SIMON, FISHER, INGRAM & WONG ALL AWARDED! by Black Wire Media Tuesday June 18, 2019 www.cnjfo.com/join-us CNJFO's President, Matt Andras, spoke from the heart last Friday evening at Tony Simon's "The 2nd is for Everyone: Diversity Shoot, detailing the how & why of the beginning of the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners (CNJFO). He then called Anthony Colandro, Tony Simon, Sean Fisher, Dan Ingram and Nick Wong to the front of the classroom at Gun For Hire's Woodland Park Range where this Diversity Shoot was being held. Thanking each of the honorees for their steadfast support of the 2nd Amendment in New Jersey and the Coalition in particular, Andras, on behalf of CNJFO's Board of Trustees, did then officially award the five a "Patriot Kit" consisting of a custom pewter pin, embossed certificate and thank-you note. The applause were so loud it froze the video camera (noted in video). These five have been supporting us since our inception, so they were the first selected for this honor. We at the Coalition are proud to partner with and are humbled by the volunteerism, expertise, monetary support, and hours spent promoting awareness, education and good will in the NJ 2nd Amendment community at-large. These five deserve your congratulations, respect, and your promise to do your best on the 2A scene as we celebrate their unwavering efforts on our behalf. Andras then concluded his brief presentation with the following remark, "When friends get together conversations get started. When conversations get started, ideas begin to flourish. When ideas flourish, great things will be accomplished". He also added, "Don't just be a member, become a part of it, own it, and say this is MY organization and I'm proud to work with it"!

    • Please note that the overall length is 26.5" with a 12.5" barrel.  This means the firearm was measured collapsed.  If you choose to build your own and risk the legality of it, DO NOT use a barrel less than 12.5" long. I embrace gray areas of the law, but that letter from the NJSP sets a precedent for how OAL (overall length) will be determined in NJ.
