Brownells expands its series of pistol accessories and parts, launching Polymer80 80 percent frames in a range of colors for do-it-yourself pistol builders.

The frames accept parts compatible with the Gen 3 Glock 19, 23, and 32 as well as Glock models 17, 22, 33, 34, and 35. The 80 percent frames boasts a Brownells exclusive, aggressive grip texture as well as an array of colors to include black, coyote tan, flat dark earth, grey and OD green.

As with any 80 percent frame, consumers must perform the final manufacturing to make the part functional. Brownells has included a jig and all required drill bits and end mill required to complete the pistol frame. As the frames are not complete firearms they can be shipped directly to users homes in lieu of a FFL.

“The Polymer80 80 percent frames are perfect for dedicated enthusiasts who enjoy building it themselves,” said Brownells CEO Pete Brownell in a press release. “Those who might have built their own AR-15 rifle can now make their very own custom pistol with just a few simple tools.”

Brownells takes it a step further, offering a complete webpage dedicated to 80 percent frame and how to build them.

The Polymer80 frames are available directly from Brownells and tout a retail price of $149.99.
