    Polymer 80 Issue

    I'm building a P80 using slide and other parts from a 2 gen G17. The slide 'rides too low' and hits or drags on the ejector. What did I do wrong?

    Well, everything must be really tight. I got the slide and trigger to function properly but now can't get the slide back off. I also have a G19 and G43 so I am familiar with how to remove the slide but on my Poly 80 it must be too tight for the slide lock to clear. Any suggestions how to remove a slide with this condition??

    Not familiar on the gen differences, but it says to build a poly 80, use gen 3 parts, correct? Is there a drastic difference between gen 2 and gen 3 that is creating the problem?

    My apologies. It appears all is well. After a bit more 'messin' with it' I was able to get the slide to function fine. I put 50 rounds through it no problem. Feels real good. Then disassembled as it should. I guess these things just need to be cycled for a bit for everything to work. For the record it is a Polymer 80 PF940V2 kit using slide, barrel, and other internals from a G17 2nd Gen.

    Glad that all is well with the build. Good info on the PF940V2 using the gen 2 parts. I was under the impression they all used gen 3 parts. I want to build a Strike 80 G19, but afraid I would go bananas in the "upgrade" dept. I can see the final bill as over $1000 easy.

    I've been looking at that as well and came to the same conclusion.

    Yes, really confusing to figure out what parts fit. The only thing I couldn't use from the 17 gen 2 was the slide lock and trigger housing, trigger and bar (needed gen 3). Since the Gen 2 is a two pin I had to use a slide lock from the gen 3.

    Sounds to me like you sanded too much material off and drilled your holes too low
