Smaller grip adapter is for G19 mags, longer grip adapter is for G17 mags.

Looks to me like you need the short adapter for 19 mags and long for 17 mags.

Hopefully I’ll be able to confirm physically soon.

I pre-ordered early.

I probably should order the parts to finish the build.

I'm thinking you should have ordered the parts when you ordered the frame. I should have also.

Right now my plan is to strip the parts from my first P80 build. It works, but is pretty rough. I can always build it back up when parts are available again at reasonable prices.

Yep, I also have a P80 build that didn't turn out as "clean" as I would have liked, I can rob parts from it.

My slide is already built and my frame parts are sitting in a ziplock bag waiting. And waiting. :)

The GST-9 really interests me since it can use standard Glock holsters.

Does anyone have concerns about it’s durability?  What material is it printed from?

Well, you seem to know far more about its manufacturing process than anyone else I have heard. So, it is printed?

This review mentions that the pre-production frame was printed but that production models will be injection molded. See the section about halfway down the page under 'Putting the GST-9 Up To The Test'.

I only know what I read and most of it is from this thread.  It was mentioned somewhere that it was 3D printed.  I didn't know they were only talking about the pre-production model.

Initial thoughts-
Jig is very sturdy. Bolt together design assures that nothing will move. Frame 'snaps' into the jig and nests perfectly.
Finished it to 100% in 15 minutes- and I did not hurry. Recoil spring channel material was much easier to finish than a Polymer 80, since the material that
needs to be removed is at the end of the channel near the muzzle.
Whatever they used to construct the frame seems a bit softer and less brittle than the compound P80 uses.
Now for assembly....

Sorry, already installed! But I can tell you the rear rail module is a vast improvement from the P80's.
Assembled and function checked. Assembly was a breeze.
All pins lined up perfectly with only light tapping to install.
Off for a test fire.

It's raining here, so I only ran two mags through it. (G17 OEM mags)
'Ran like a clock. I need to run a few hundred more rounds for a full assessment, but so far I'm impressed.
I think I can confidently recommend this frame to anyone who had 'bad luck' with a Polymer80 frame.
Don't get me wrong, I love the P80's, but they have their quirks.
This thing gets a 10 out of 10. There isn't anything I don't like about it so far.

-Yes, those are factory Glock "put the drop in the bucket" sights on this build. (steel, not plastic)
I'm one of the what seems to be the few Glockers that actually like the OEM sight configuration.
Link Posted: 5/18/2020 7:51:33 PM EST
I got a black frame and got in early on the pre-order but mine hasn't shipped yet.  
Those above images look pretty.
I am excited.  If some already have it, I bet I'll know more tomorrow or the end of the week
Link Posted: 5/18/2020 7:51:41 PM EST
Can you post three photos...one looking at the gun from the rear, assembled....one looking at the frame from the side with the slide removed...one looking at the frame from the slide face, with the slide removed...please?

I'd like to see how the configuration compares to the Polymer 80 frame before I buy another.

I figured I'd give the 80% Arms kit a year to sort out but if they have their act together, I might jump sooner.

Thanks

The grip texture (or lack there of) is a no-go for me.

Hopefully a gen 2 has texture on the entire grip instead of just the middle.

You mean a P80 frame with a goofy ass trigger guard that doesn’t fit any holster? Or a stock Glock that needs a grip reduction, undercut, finger groove removal, and stippling to be worth a shit?

P80s with weapon lights fit all may weapon light holsters just fine.

MR920/918 Frames are great.

Nomad Defense Frames look pretty solid.

I'm glad we have another 80% Glock frame on the market, but slick plastic on 1/2 the grip in 2020 is unacceptable.

I'f I'm going to modify, i'm going to modify a OEM frame.

Why only make a frame for 2/3 sizes, especially when they're so close to getting 3/3.

The modular frame is what sets this aftermarket frame apart from others. They're almost there. Hopefully they continue to refine their design.

No sarcasm intended, but I don't get what seems to an infatuation with grip texturing/stippling.
I get that it's important to have a connection between grip and the hand.  Out of the dozen pistols I've owned, including this frame from 80% Arms- I've never had
and issue with the grips, and I've shot in lots of different conditions- hot/cold, wet/dry, sweaty hands, etc...
The texturing on this grip, even though it does not cover the whole grip- is sufficient. It feels good in the hand.
To each their own I guess.
Maybe somebody needs to do some grip strength training

I treat the grip like I do a cars tires.

Normal street tires work fine for most people, but if you offroad or race you need special tires to maximize surface grip in order to maximize performance.

If the grip is worse than stock, then its not worth it to me.
