Main Topic: Polymer80 Pistol Build with Nick of We Like Shooting!

  1. Had you heard of P80 before you did the interview with the company rep on WLS?

  2. You already have a background in building firearms, but was there anything you encountered with the P80 build that you hadn’t before?

  3. What would you classify the difficulty level at for the P80 build?

  4. What are some things that a consumer has to be aware of before starting one of these builds? (i.e. “i can build a “Glock” for cheap!” when it actually may be more expensive than buying a stock Glock.)

  5. What tools come with the build kit?

  6. What tools MUST one have to do the build?

  7. What are some other components that you have to acquire besides the P80 kit to allow you to make a fully functional handgun?

  8. Did you run into any reliability/performance issues with the P80 that you built? if so, how did you remedy them?

Weerd, any questions?
