Polymer80 has announced it will soon offer a hybrid 80-percent pistol frame for every day carry, introducing the PF940CL.

Designed for everyday carriers looking for a longer slide but more compact grip, the PF940CL aims to fill that gap between full-size and sub-compact.

“It sports a full-size length, but has a compact-sized grip. Think the opposite of the 19X, and you’re on the right track,” Soldier Systems reported.

Available in pre-textured or non-textured ReadyMod, the frame works alongside 3-pin G17, G34 and G17L models as well as equivalent sized .40 and .357 Sig Glock slides and barrels. The PF940CL comes ripe with features Polymer80 says will please consumers.

“Offering compatibility with Glock 19/23 Gen3 components, the PF940C is an industry first,” the company said in a statement. “Customers can choose between two different grip styles: the standard grip texture or ReadyMod grip providing a blank canvas for customization. Features like the extended beaver tail, double undercut trigger guard, and a thumb ledge considerably enhance the ergonomics allowing for an effective grip and improved recoil mitigation. “

Included with the 80-percent frame is the jig and all tooling needed to finish the frame with a drill press and XY cross-vise. Polymer80 says demand has been so high for the product that lead times are currently one to two weeks. The PF940CL is available though Polymer80 with a MSRP of $160.
