    I've sold several and have two in the safe for personal use.
    In my opinion,they are the best plastic lowers out there. If you just wanted too, you could use standard parts.

    We actually put one on a Zell Custom .50 BMG uppers and it's held up very well.

    I highly reccomend them. To be honest, I wasnt a fan of a polymer lower, but these changed my mind.

    That's an amazing price if the quality is actually there. You could match it to a BCM upper and have a pretty solid rifle for under $600. That's pretty low for an AR, particularly one of quality.

    Re: ar-15 polymer lower...

    My brother in law has a plumb crazy lower that he loves. I have handled it once and it was okay for a plastic gun. I personally will save the extra pennies and buy a metal ar.

    Just so you know, the Plum Crazy lower isnt even in the same league as this one. Not all polymer lowers are created equal.

    The Plum Crazy has a molded in handle, this one can be changed to a Magpul or whatever fits any AR. as well as the stock.

    I just don't know if I could fully trust a polymer receiver. And the trigger and hammer are polymer too?? Hmmm....

    I may buy one of these come election night depending what it looks like, however...I just don't know if I will ever really trust it as much as a quality aluminum lower.

    so i ordered one of these today. $130 shipped. i spent an extra $10 of that on a second firing hammer that is needed for some blow back uppers and 22/9mm/etc. conversions.

    money is tight and i wanted to get an "assault" rifle. not sure what kind of upper i want to mate it with. there were some sales on friday on psa for some pretty decent ones for like $300. suggestions?

    I have a few of these... love em.

    Not too long ago many scoffed at the idea of a plastic handgun with a brick for a grip... now they are the gold standard.

    well, to be honest i don't see a difference in durability between aluminum and polymer. aluminum is a soft alloy. i know, i am a machinist/welder. the only difference i can see, is that aluminum bends, and polymer flexes.

    however, i have no familiarity with the type of polymer this thing is made of, so i am just guessing as to the rigidity of it until i get the thing in the mail and check it out.
