Default 80% Arms GST-9 80% Glock Compatible Pistol Frame

Hello CalGunners! Our latest product is the GST-9; our 80% Glock® compatible pistol frame build.

The GST-9 is the world's first modular 80% pistol compatible with Glock® components and both Glock® 17 and Glock® 19 magazines. Not only did we want an 80% frame that looked as good or better than any 100% handgun on the market, we engineered it from the inside out to improve upon the original Glock® design. The GST-9 frame is packed with features not found anywhere else. We spent two years studying customer feedback to determine what features were missing among the different options, and not only incorporated what we found, but we gave you the option to choose how to build your frame. Features include:

Extended Internal Rails
Exaggerated Gas Pedal Cuts
Nickel Mating Surfaces
Trigger Guard Undercut
Compatible With Glock® Parts
Full 1913 Picatinny Rail
Modular frame w/ Interchangeable Grip Sizing & Magwells
Fits in Glock® Holsters

Every GST-9 pre-order ships with two separate grip modules to create both a standard and a full-size frame that attaches to the contoured frame body for improved ergonomics and shootability. Flared magwells speed up reload times, and our ultra-slick nickel-coated rails which are three-times original OEM length keep tolerances tight and recoil managed for quick, precise shooting. Why settle for a pistol made for someone else's hands?

FRAME ONLY $79.99 (SAVE $40 DURING PRE-SALE SALE)

PISTOL BUILD KIT $699.99 (SAVE $150 DURING PRE-SALE)

JIG AND TOOLING KIT $19.99

*** Glock® is a trademark of Glock Inc. The GST-9 is not manufactured by or endorsed by Glock Inc.

We are the nation's leading manufacturer of 80% jigs and lowers. We sell 80% products in all states where permitted. Presently, all 80% frames and lowers are legal to sell and purchase in CA. However, CA is governed by a minefield of different laws when it comes to building 80% lowers. We cannot provide legal advice to CA residents or to the residents of all the other states who purchase 80% products from us.

With what generation of Glock parts will it be compatible?

Thank you! Are you planning to release it in different colors? White, perhaps?

Interesting, so if I had a G19. All I would have to do is buy a frame and switch over all the stock components to the new frame? This is completely legal as well?

Sorry I’m a newb. I really wanted to get a G19 but the Gen3 finger grooves was a no go. Thinking about getting a second gun in the future. This would be a nice solution to my situation.

Thanks!

Does it contain the 3.7 ounces of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel required in order to lawfully be built into a complete weapon in California? (Please refer to Penal Code section 29180(b)(2)(B) for the requirement).

From the description/pictures on their website, it does not appear to contain the CA required amount of stainless steel.

However, until 07-01-2024; it is CA legal to make, import, advertise for sale, transfer, and possess that "80% receiver/frame" in CA.

Since 07-01-2018, it is not CA legal to do so.

Which is exactly my point, what can a California resident do with their frame other than use it as a paperweight?

What do we all think of the business practices of an outfit that promotes their product on a California oriented website knowing full well that their California customers cannot legally complete the frame?

Can you just glue a piece of metal onto the inside of the frame to add the required 3.7oz of metal ?

Not all calguns members are in CA, and even those who are have family/friends outside CA that might be very interested in such a product...

That may be true, but that's not the focus of the forum. This is "Calguns", not "Texguns", "Idguns", "Nevguns" or whatever other kinda "guns".

This outfit's marketing leads the customer to believe that can build their 80% product into a completed weapon, which is not the case for the California market.

Nope: 1) That doesn't comply with the requirements of the statute. 2) There's no place inside the frame that you could fit the required amount of metal and still have the weapon function.

For now we are releasing frames in black and FDE as that comprises the vast majority of customers' preference. However, we have not ruled out also offering other colors. Please check back in Spring to see if additional colors have been added. Thanks!

Hello RickD427,

No, the frame does not have 3.7 oz of steel in it.

I want to hear more about the progress of this project. Been wanting to order several since hearing about it in November, but there haven't been any actual product photos, or press previews. Would really want to see more information about this lower in real life and not just renders, a campy promo video, or a regurgitation of PRs.

And thank you very much for a direct, concise, and non-evasive answer to the question.

Hello pln,

Sorry for the late reply. For some reason our Calguns emails went to spam...

As a little background on injection molding, the final step (of a very long process) of creating the tooling is applying the texture and stippling to the molds. Therefore, the actual live product images released so far have been without texture or stippling. Very soon texture and stippling will be added to the tooling and we'll release photos when this final step is completed. The production frame will look awesome. (One of the driving forces behind this frame was to not only to make it functionally superior, but also to make it look like a premium 100% frame you would buy in a gun store.)

Press reviews will be forthcoming as we get closer to the launch.

Everything is still looking good for production in early Spring.

Sorry to bring back an older thread. I’m very interested in this.

If I understand it correctly, there needs to be a specific amount of steel in the frame and a permanently etched unique serial. Will this kit meet those requirements in its final form?
