GGP makes a sweet looking frame.

That they do.

I'm not normally a fan of Glock 19's...I am, however, a big fan of the Paladin 19.

Just hits the spot.  :evil:

Are those frames like P80’s that use G3 magazine buttons? No lefty option.

Looks like a gen 3 mag catch. How do you eject the mag on pistols that aren't ambi or have reversible mag catches?

Pretty sure they are just p80 frames finished, serialized and have a different grip texture.  P80 is going to be releasing a lot more frames soon.   I love all my p80 frames.  Often neeed a little love and some cycling.  But can’t beat the grip angle.

They're similar to the P80, but not the same.

Not Ambi.

Even the P80 frames require some serious work/sanding.

I have a few of the new ones being released, I personally like the Ghost's better, but to each their own.

I've been getting a bunch of question on the Paladins.

Where do they stand in terms of Zev's offering?
My basic model is competing directly with Zev - We're offering essentially the same product for a lower price point, with a lifetime warranty.

Average wait time?
2 weeks - Shipped to the FFL of your choosing.

What parts do you use?
We use mostly stock parts - We modify some and swap out others for a better product.

What barrels are you using?
We use the same OEM manufacturer as Glock for our barrels.

What colors of cerakote can I pick for the Pro?
Black, Sniper Grey, ODG, or Flat Dark Earth.
If you want a Battlewarn - It's +$25.
If you want a color we don't stock - It's +$50.

Any other questions, please let me know.
