    Battle of the polymer wonders

    So I’m highly considering getting a full size polymer gun to customize and make an absolute joy to shoot. I have a Shadow 2 and will be keeping it stock, but I’d like to get something I can customize and toss a red dot on and all that good stuff. Came here for the knowledge and opinions as far as aftermarket support goes, overall cost associated, recoil impulse etc etc

    I figure a good place to start is Glock 34, M&P 5”, Springfield XDM 5” (might be 5.25 I don’t remember) and Sig P320. Could also consider a P80 and possibly (but not likely) the new Ruger Competition pistol. So, if you have something that you love that you’ve purchased or built, please drop your opinions below!

    Thanks as always

    Good ideas, don’t love Walther though. I’ll look at the Zev

    What’s the fun in that? Haha. Good idea though, I’ll consider it for sure

    I love my oz9.

    I love that my sights and my red dot are in normal places. I HATE suppressor height sights...

    Just looked at it, and should clarify my budget haha. Not looking to go super spendy on this little project. Would love if everything altogether stayed under a grand. Might make it tricky but I feel like it’s still possible

    I went down this rabbit hole about 3 years ago with my XDM 5.25. I put on a Dawson thinner front sight, a powder river precision trigger kit, Tungston guide rod, stippled grip, and extended mag release. The gunsmith that put the trigger in really knew the inner workings of an XDM and by removing some of the striker mechanism and changing some trigger geometry the pull ends up being about 2.5#. I thought it was one of the nicest pistols I had shot until I picked up a metal frame gun. I then went out that day and ordered a metal frame gun. Since getting my metal frame gun, I may have put 300 rounds through the XDM in the past two years.

    If I were you with a shadow 2, I would try to customize that with a trigger job and some other parts. I have shot many worked over Shadow 2s and every time I do, its hard not to buy one.

    Sig P320 is the most customizable plastic gun on earth.
    This is the same gun after 34 seconds... Well, maybe 67 seconds including swapping the flat trigger...

    Only reason I don’t want to mess with the CZ is so I can still shoot production with it as an out of the box gun. It’s completely stock aside from grips.

    P320 might not be a bad way to go. LGS does have the M17 in stock..

    Agree with the P320. I went X-Carry with a Romeo dot, Taran Tactical baseplates, Gray Guns trigger and a few other customizable goodies.
