Polymer80 PFS9TM and PFC9TM: Red Dot Ready

If you’re a dedicated shooter, odds are high that you have used or currently use red dot sights on your handguns. The days when red dots were the exception rather than the rule are behind us. With red dots constantly gaining popularity and seeing widespread use, it makes life easier if your gun is optics-ready. The Polymer80 PFS9TM and PFC9TM complete pistols are available with their slides already milled and ready for optics, which speeds up the process of getting a red dot on your favorite gun quite a bit.

Polymer80 released some details about their complete pistols:

The PFC9 and PFS9 complete pistols combine innovative ergonomics and features to provide the ultimate in shoot-ability and comfortable concealment. Built with high-strength reinforced polymer construction, the P80 pistol frames include an aggressive standard texture on the sides, front and backstrap for a superior grip in multiple environments. The complete slide features front and rear serrations coupled with clean, modern lines and a heavy front chamfer which allows effective manipulation and holstering of a P80 pistol while maintaining a low-key aesthetic profile. A black carrying case with foam insert and instruction manual is included with every PFC9/PFS9 complete pistol package.

Executive Vice President Dan McCalmon made the following statement about the company’s optics-ready complete pistols:

There’s no doubt that, for most shooters, a red dot sight enables faster target acquisition, greater accuracy, better speed and both-eyes-open target focused shooting – all good things. With more and more handgun purchasers looking to add an optic to their pistols, this no-cost upgrade provides them with a quick, easy way to mount a wide variety of optics.

McCalmon went on to say:

Our popular complete pistols offer both great value and high quality. Both are examples of our company motto, ‘Engage Your Freedom.’
