They make frames for those? I thought it was only 9 and 40 compatible frames?
I own 5 80% lower AR-15 lowers. I haven't touched them yet and I have no AR-15 parts whatsoever. The only funs I own are a 10/22 and a Glock 17 my dad bought me when I turned 21. Can someone recommend a upper receiver that is good when I do finally build one of my five lowers? The lowers I own were purchased when they were on sale. Thanks
Here's my gHOooOoOOst Glawk 26 thing. Worked like ass the first time around with fail to feeds and no locking back on the last mag. Most issues seemed to be fixed by smoothing out and deburring the rear rail and making sure the spring channel is nice and smooth. Slide actually feels less rough/gritty(?) to rack than my G17 right now. I'm debating making a fagged out 19 or putting together a 10mm or even buying a single action 357 to justify my reloading set even more.
Honestly any milspec upper is fine unless you're looking for something specific (no brass deflector or no forward assist). Brownells is having a special deal for stripped uppers, which is what I imagine you're asking for.
Put one of the Polymer80 glocks together and I've found that putting in a Gen4 extractor is necessary for reliable function. Little fucker wouldn't stop failing to feed and extract.
This is probably a bigger reason that marketing gimmick. It's still a marketing gimmick term.
I hope you’re not planning to use one of these frankeglawks for EDC.
I do it all the time, what about it bitch?
I was addressing those of us who aren’t legally prohibited from purchasing firearms. For you it’s a good option Paco.
No you didn't, cocksucker. Though I would HIGHLY recommend not building a firearm if you are legally prohibited from purchasing a firearm. Just carry a black powder pistol as your EDC, it's not a firearm.
Thanks for the YouTube legal advice Diego. However it’s incorrect to say BP is not a firearm. Federally yes, but states set their own laws, most of which still prohibit a felon from carrying BP.
Yes you are correct, you would need to consult a local attorney.
Finished an 80% build. Slide's smooth and she'll eject rounds just fine. However. When I pop a magazine in and let the slide forward, the round won't go in. It'll catch on the lip of the brass to the top of the chamber. Thoughts? Just get a new (nicer) barrel?
An 80% what? AR? Glawk fody?
yes! I need to do some finishing touches but I put it together and it functions.
The striker was really hard to do with depressing a spring while putting those tiny plastic cups on. Glocks are interesting in what went into making them work.
80% is what the ATF determined the maximum a firearm can be completed (their definition of a firearm which is the frame/receiver) before it needs to go to an FFL. Check out their determination letter. 80% builds have been ok for years and aren't going anywhere unless some (((Las Vegas))) tier bullshit happens.
This. And the work as to be machining, they can't just mail you a bag of parts that click together, you have to remove material with a tool.
check my video above and see if that helps?
So assembled the slide as well? I just bought a vickers g19 slide for a pretty good price considering it was during the whole p80 compact craze that was going on.
If any of you niggers still have a (((faceberg))) you could visit the "80% builder" page. The dudes there are pretty knowledgeable on the subject and have posted numerous build guides and walkthroughs, as well as jig, endmill, and router pros/cons and routine issues/occurrences.
I threw together both a 9mm PF940 and a way overdone AR. Those took up just about all my disposable income for a little while. Glock parts are insanely expensive; even though it would have cost around half of what I spent on the build to just buy one, It's worth it to keep it off the record.
Do you not know what armslist is?
Not on my state
Swap out your extractor for a Gen 4 one. I built the exact same gun using shit MidwayUSA swenson parts and it had the same problem.
Currently: AR15 (a super shorty .300BLK pistol, and a recce inspired 5.56), AR10 (20" planned), a 10/22, AR9 (glock mag), G17 (original P80, might just practice and learn how to stipple on it because it's ugly), G19 (chopped into a 26 grip, I plan on carrying it one of these years),and a P228… and I think that's it right now.
Ordered: Nothing so far.
Wants to build: M535 to MG3 conversion, 22/45, more glawks, ARs so I can share with loved ones. Kind of want a G43 even though I chopped the 19 already. I think I'll buy it when it comes out because why not.
If AK builds were still a thing in 5.45 I'd have bought a Tantal.
