Business End Customs P3 – Precision Polymer Pistol

I first met Lou Biondo of Business End Customs about eight years ago when I dropped off a pristine Glock 17 for a (new to me) process called “grip reduction and stippling”. And after years of use, my BEC G17 still performs and looks great. Today, Biondo is announcing a pistol designed and built completely in-house at Business End Customs: The P3.

Based on the Glock 3rd Generation design, BEC is making the Precision Polymer Pistol (P3 or P cubed) with custom features that modded-Glock shooters commonly ask for without having to retrofit a standard Glock. Details and pricing are listed below.

Introducing the Business End Customs Precision Polymer Pistol, dubbed the “P3” (P cubed). The BEC p3 is a full house custom built polymer pistol, with parts from the USA. The p3 has superior ergonomics and gives you all the options you need for a custom polymer pistol, without all the “fluff.” Most parts are interchangeable with factory and aftermarket Glock Gen3 parts. Available in Full size & Compact models.

    Dang! I just never knew my out-of-the-box Gen3 Glock 19 was so inadequate. I guess the same could be said for my Gen2 17. Now I am just depressed.

  • M1911

    Lou does nice work, but I just don’t see spending $1,800 on a Glock.

    • DIR911911 .

      I can buy three glocks and a lot of sandpaper and a dremel for $1800 and still have money for a few boxes of ammo

      • M1911

        If I started with 3 Glocks and a Dremel, I’d end up with at most two Glocks and a Dremel 😉

  • David B

    You could buy 3 glocks for the price of that glock.

    • Jack

      But then you’d end up paying $4500+ after you tricked them out!!

  • Lou Biondo

    This is built and intended to give that guy that buys a Glock and them sends it out for a $2000 Glock package offered by other companies an option for a custom pistol. Not everybody is into custom pistols and nothing wrong with a Glock out of the box .

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Thanks for coming by Lou. Beautiful work as always.

    • Spencerhut

      Looks fantastic, for a Glock. What is the purpose of the “u” shaped cut on the end of the slide? For knocking stuck rounds out against a hard edge?

      • Wow!

        Likely the U is for the same reason it is on an M9, to do a quick chamber check.

  • A.WChuck

    If you feel you need a custom Glock, this one looks pretty good. It also shows that Glock guys really are not that much different than 1911 guys.

    • Jared Vynn

      Blasphemy!

  • David Bruce

    Love it. I have made a lot of modifications over the years to my handguns. Some people don’t believe in customizing their guns and I get that. But for those that do, this is a nice option.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Lou does fine work. His tree bark grip texture is IMHO the hands-down best stipple work in the business. I had him undercut the trigger guard, remove the finger grooves, and tree bark a G19 grip frame for me, and the price was quite reasonable.

    I don’t have a need for any of the fancy stuff on this gun, but he does nice work, and I like looking at it. And if you are the kind of person who buys a Glock and then immediately tries to Zev-ify it, this is probably a screaming deal.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Exactly.

    • Brian Fulmer

      I could see having the frame work done on my G33. Thank you for the info. I loathe the finger grooves, I got started with a Glock 21 G2. I can fit 1.5 fingers on my G33, I could dispense with skateboard tape and quit tearing up holsters/clothing. Weirdly, the range-toy G22 G3 I picked up last year is far less annoying with a 2.5 finger grip and grooves. Not a carry gun, though.

      • Phillip Cooper

        I carry a G17. How is a G22 not a carry gun?

  • iksnilol

    Kinda sad that they have to write “P3 (p cubed)”

    Just write it correctly, and if people complain about the tiny 3 they know who isn’t really smart enough to operate it safely.

  • Raptor Fred

    Why would you remove material from the slide in the front there? Why kind of accuracy is expected from these at 25yds?

    • Wow!

      I don’t think it is for accuracy, I think it is for chamber checking. You pinch it from the bottom and cant your wrist so you move the slide back only half an inch to confirm brass. Trying to slingshot or (especially) powerstroke halfway to see brass often ends up in accidentally ejecting the round.

    Sure looks spot on like a Lone Wolf blank slide, barrel and UAT trigger to me. With some personal machining to make it his own, of course. If I’m wrong, I apologize. I assembled a complete LWD G19 a couple of years ago. Only Glock parts are the mags and trigger bar on the UAT trigger shoe. LWD TB is slightly different and stacked a bit much for me. Glock TB was major improvement. Magpul mags just didn’t work 100% out of it. I’ve owned dozens of Glocks since late 80s and the LWD non Glock 19 has been 100% functional with any ammo and shoots group sizes half the size as any of my G19s. Mostly due to tighter tolerances and a slightly better barrel in my opinion. And yes, I do love Glocks. The LWD frame fits my hand perfectly as the Glock grip was always a bit large. Even the Gen4. Oh, it only cost about $700. Even their complete pistols are high priced though.

    This should be very nice for those who just can’t get a grip on Glocks. Trigger reach is a few mm better than the gen 4 on the LWD frame and probably more grippy with the texture he does. With a Ghost 3.5 connector and the right spring combo, trigger pull can be sweet. I’d expect this to be similar. Accuracy and consistency should be nicer than Glock. I shoot and own 1911s too. Don’t much like the higher prices on them either.

    I think the high prices on the Glock copies are their downfall too. Not trying to knock anyone’s product and this one is one of the better priced high end clones, but as others have said, you can buy about 4 Glocks, almost 3 complete LWD complete kits or upgrade a couple of your own Glocks for this price. I think these super high end 1911 and Glock pistols tend to draw in the posers, safe queens, deep pocket show offs and occasionally a real shooter who wants something a bit better and cooler looking.

    You won’t beat the reliability, durability and rust resistance of the Glock. You could match it, but not beat it. It’s not hard to be more accurate than the Glock though.

    All just my opinion and I can afford to buy any Glock or 1911 currently out there. I don’t drink any Kool aid either. So, fire away, if I hurt your feelers.

    Lou, regardless of base materials, I love the look. I also applaud your efforts to bring out another top tiered Glock clone in a market quickly filling up with them. Last time I checked, there were 20+ companies doing this. With Wilson’s entry into barrels, I see them doing some custom Glock sooner or later like the Beretta 92 they sell.

    I’d like to see the $800-$1000 custom Glock clone that would outshoot them all with only the bells and whistles that strive to improve fit, function and accuracy. I could see the buyer that would run to it over a stock Glock.

    And the biggest irony of all? It can’t be bought (except by cops) in Lou’s loony moonbat state of Massachusetts.
