So how was the milling part?  Easy or difficult?  Did it on a drill press?

 

Thanks,

It wasn’t bad at all, would have been easier if I had used a Dremel. I don’t have one, so I did the filing by hand. It took me a while fitting the slide, but I also wasn’t trying to rush it. No drill press, just used a standard Dewalt drill.

I took a different approach, similar to You tubes marinegunbuilder. Used a flush cut nippers, files and sandpaper to do the rails. I used a drill press, contrary to P-80 advise, I felt I had much better control than a hand drill. Finished the recoil guide rod channel with a small dikes and a dremel.

Poly80s are super easy, brother - VERY much so, with a hand drill.  I think the first one took me 45 minutes,  Completed the next two in a total of 45 minutes.  The speed picked up on those others when I clipped most of the tabs off the tops of the frames, instead of filing the whole things off.  :thumbup:
