Is P80 legal to carry? The short answer is yes, but most don’t recommend it. The P80 replicates the Glock® series handgun with the same frame in form, the same build and function. From first glance you can’t see a difference between the two.The P80 lower or P80 frame kit are the only components that are not Glock brand. This is what makes the Glock® series and P80 different. The P80 closely resembles the Glock 19. However the reason it’s not recommended for carry is simply because the P80 frame kit does not come with serial numbers.
How are P80 legal for concealed carry?
How is the P80 legal? This may come as a shock to you, but even though the P80 lower does not obtain a serial number. The handgun is still legal to own and assemble in most states. As it stands right now Polymer 80 is absolutely legal to own under federal law. This is because the federal law does not see the p80 frame kit and other parts as a firearm. Once assembled into a firearm most states don’t require any serializing to a complete kit. Some P80 owners still utilize their P80 for concealed carry, however if you get stopped by law enforcement you will have to explain why your firearm doesn’t have a serial number.
Why choose a P80 over a Glock?
It’s true you could just walk into any gun store buy a Glock and call it a day. But like everything there are pros and cons. In my opinion the P80 has way more to offer over the Glock.
