Well, I did it again. Bought 3 (more) glock 33rd magazines. Thinking I need an intervention.
Naw you're fine,as there is no such thing as too many magazines or too much ammunition

4.5x14x40. It will be going on a Savage ultralte in 308 win. I purchased a warne mountain tech rail and rings also. This will be a gun I use for packing in the timber and clear cuts here in Idaho. It should come in around 7 pounds complete.

Needs about 4 hours of love to include a trigger job.
Need full pics!
Well last night was about 3 hours in.
I know this gun will run and cycle well now.
Trigger job ain't happening tonight.
Tested about 10 times and it's got a 4lb trigger, should stay on target well.
Here is a pic!

My first P80 build would not run, it was a G17.
That first build taught me a lot about the Glock platform.
Maybe I am different, I like the challenge when there are issues.

Some have brought their Glocks to me and they have actually damaged the weapon.
Get upset when I tell them they need parts.

I won't lie here, I'll most likely never veer from the Glock platform.
Guess I'll never be a gunsmith. :(:(:(

I learned much about the Glock platform as you say,with my first build and now I have 4 under my belt when and If Poly 80 releases a Gen 5 P 80 for the G 44 I'll add that to the line up, then all my Glock's will be P 80's

Interesting. I heard that Polymer 80 and other companies picked the Glock Gen3 design because all the patent protections expired. Gen5 being so new would prevent such a thing. Glock has a history of suing companies that infringe on their designs.

Then there’s Sig with their 320 and in some of the interviews with Sig reps, they make it sound like they are almost like open source. Wanting there to be lots of aftermarket parts for their platform.

I know it's going to be some time before it happen because as you say Glock will protect their pattens all the way thru the courts,vigorously but hey I can dream of the day.

Most of Czech stuff I have seen gets good reports. Haven't ever seen Czech ammo though. Hope it runs well for you.

I went to a local gun show. I have been to a show in 3+ years. Saw a ProMag AR47 mag. the guy tried to sell it to me. "Nope can't give me on of those turds!" I said, "Wanna buy some ASC 30rd stainless X39's still in the package?" "I'll ask." I told the guy $14 each. "you live local? Go get them." I brought him 12 of them. Then he made me a "deal" on 2 Tiger Rock bad levers for $12 a piece! I didn't know he had them. I wouldn't have looked at them with their $29.99 price tag. (his Magpul's were $39.99 :rolleyes:) I got them as I have been on the notify list at AR15discounts for 2 months.

On with shopping got a box of local made .357JHP's in new Starline brass. 25 for $30.

Was talking to a local ammo seller about a holster for my G48. He had some at the store. Told him a regretted buying that and not waiting for a 43X. "It's never been fired." He said "Hey I'll trade you straight up for my 43X that has had 10rds through it for a function check!" I went back this morning and did the trade! He didn't lie, only one mag had powder residue in it. Evidently his bifocal line interfered with seeing the front sight on the short barrel.

;):D
