Attention all Glock 43 fans! GlockStore launched this week its new Single Stack 80 percent lower, aka the SS80, for the G43.
Sold exclusively through the GlockStore, you can place your order today for an estimated mid-March delivery.
What separates the SS80 from the factory Glock 43 are a number of features or, depending on your perspective, improvements.
For starters, the SS80 is said to have been constructed from a “more durable nylon/polymer blend” than the original. This purportedly makes what is an eminently reliable pistol even more reliable.
Features that improve shootability include a more aggressive grip texture, a double trigger undercut, and an extended beavertail. Together they should allow the user to get a high and firm purchase on the handgun, reducing felt recoil while improving speed and accuracy.
- New Texture and Frame Style
- Double Trigger Guard Undercut
- Extended Rear Rail system
- Extended Beaver Tail
- And Extended Locking Block Rail System
- Blank Serialization Panel
- Drill bits
- Jig fixture to guide in completion of the lower
- SS80 window sticker
Why build your own? Because it’s fun. Because it’s cheap.
Lenny Magill, who founded the GlockStore, put together a 3-part series on the SS80 build. The first installment is below. Aside from the kit, users will need the following tools and materials to finish the build: a drill, a Dremel tool, sandpaper, WD40, and a vise.
