Polymer 80 kits have become so popular that they are usually out of stock everywhere. It’s a great way to custom-build your own variant of a Glock 19.
Although you learn a lot by building your own gun, some may want the advantages of a Polymer 80 kit, but don’t want to hassle with learning how to do it or taking the time to do it.
Faxon Firearms has remedied that issue by offering a complete PF940C kit known as the FX19. The Faxon FX19 comes in two different variants; The

What really stands out is the custom-cut slide. Serrations in all the right places for manipulating the gun and doing press checks.
Additionally, the top of the slide is cut for a Trijicon RMR or Holosun 507C. The front sight is a bright red fiber optic with a blacked-out rear site, making it extremely quick and easy to locate.
On top of all that, the Patriot comes with a match-grade barrel made in-house by Faxon.
Lastly, the Patriot ships with a 15-round Glock OEM magazine.

The Hellfire utilizes the same frame as the Patriot, with the exception of a magwell.
The magwell alone makes a noticeable difference in my grip. Because of the magwell and the undercut trigger guard, I’m able to get the highest grip possible on the gun.

The custom-cut slide coupled with the threaded barrel, Night Fision suppressor height sights, and extended 20-round magazine w/magwell reminds me of something out of a John Wick movie.
