The Polymer 80 kits have become so popular that they are usually out of stock everywhere. However, it’s a great way to custom-build your variant of a Glock 19.
Although you may learn a lot by building your 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 FX19 Patriot and its big brother, the FX19 Hellfire.
The Faxon FX19 pistols are more or less a Polymer 80 PF940C complete kit, without being a Glock 19, but are compatible with all Glock 19 parts and accessories.
PF940C In Stock | Faxon FX19
Faxon took the PF940C gun frame and gave it a 1911 grip angle and improved texture. In addition to that, they polished the front & rear slide rails.
They may be minor differences, but they are noticeable when holding the gun in your hand.
They dropped in an Overwatch Precision Trigger to finish the custom frame.
The Faxon Patriot FX19
The Faxon Patriot was made for concealed carry. Everything from the grip to the trigger and sights make for a formidable CCW firearm.
What stands out the most is the custom-cut slide with serrations in all the right places for manipulating the gun and doing press checks.
The top of the slide has been 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, and lastly, the Patriot ships with a 15-round Glock OEM magazine.
The Faxon Hellfire FX19
The big brother to the Faxon Patriot is the Faxon Hellfire FX19.
After handling the Patriot, the Hellfire was quite a different experience. The Hellfire feels made for my hand.
The Hellfire utilizes the same frame as the Patriot, with the exception of a magwell. The magwell alone makes a noticeable difference in the grip. However, because of the magwell and the undercut trigger guard, you can get the highest grip possible on the gun.
The sights used on the Hellfire are suppressor-height sights from Night Fision. In addition, the front sight contains a Tritium insert that ALWAYS glows, and the rear sight is blacked-out. This combination makes for fast target acquisition.
The custom-cut slide, threaded barrel, Night Fision suppressor height sights, and extended 20-round magazine w/magwell may remind you of something from a John Wick movie.
PF940C vs PF940v2
The PF940C frame is considered a compact size, I.E., Glock 19, while the Polymer 80 PF940v2 build is regarded as a full-sized frame, I.E., Glock 17.
The best thing about the full-frame PF940V2 is the compatibility with 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 Sig pistols.
What Gen Glock is the PF940C?
The PF940C is explicitly made for the Glock 19/23 Gen 3 pistol frame, magazine, and barrel.
What is PF940C compatible with?
The PF940C offers compatibility with Glock 19 Gen 3 components. In addition, the PF940C frame comes with an aggressive texture that emulates a stippled pattern.
Features like the extended beaver tail, a double undercut trigger guard, and a thumb ledge enhance the ergonomics allowing for an adequate grip and improved recoil control.
