Polymer80 out of Nevada released their Spectre 80% Glock frames a few months back. In case you’re living under a rock Polymer80’s Spectre frames are 80% completed, and just like with AR-15 80% lowers you have to finish the rest of the frame or lower yourself. It’s pretty simple to do actually. Our comrades who run Commiefornia are so scared of these evil unfinished lowers that they dubbed them “Ghost Guns”.

Well Polymer80 recently announced their Spectre 80% frames will now also be available in Flat Dark Earth, OD Green and White along with Black. They’re currently compatible with the Gen 3 Glock 17, 34, 17L 9mm slides, and the Glock 22, 35, 24 40S&W slides. They’re currently selling for $159.99 on polymer80.com. They usually retail for $179.99. The kit includes drill bits, end mill bits and a polymer jig and locking block. Everything else to complete your Ghost Glock you’ll need to source yourself which you can from various sellers.

Also new from Polymer80 is something they showed off on their Instagram page. They’re working on a polymer 80% frame for the Glock 19. Not many details are known just yet and no word on a estimated release date but I’d expect it to retail for around the same price as their larger frames.

    Glock frames are reinforced with metal along the rails. Are these frames reinforced?

    Good news on an upcoming G19 grip. My Glock 23 slide on a gen2 G19 frame is my favorite Glock. However, I don't like the frames in the photos as much as I like the one in the drawing. The one in the drawing has a grip more like a 1911 with a flat mainspring housing which most people like better than the arched mainspring housing.

    That's where Glock went wrong with the grip shape on their guns, they added too much of an "Arch" or a palm swell to the lower rear part of the grip and that's why so many people say that the Glock just doesn't fit their hand. Then when they added finger grooves in the front, that made things even worse and I much prefer gen 2 Glocks.

    The one grip shape that seems to fit everyone's hand even better than a 1911 is the Browning H-power grip. And the CZ75 grip is almost a direct copy. John Browning was a mechanical genius but he was also an artistic genius. He made form follow function in a way that was perfectly balanced and pleasing to the eye. Life is too short to own an ugly gun.
