Please read these before you drop a wad of money on a New Frontier lower.

I read those threads and a lot of the posts were just conjecture not first hand knowledge. Some talked about Plum Crazy lowers which are reported to be made from a different polymer. Before I bought my NF Armory lowers I communicated with several actual owners, most of whom were pleased with their lowers. Some of whom had run them pretty hard and were not experiencing any issues. Do I think today's polymer lowers are stronger than aluminum; probably not. But that does not mean they are not strong enough to get the job done. Like I said before mine are going to be used for dedicated .22LR's but I may match one up to my PSA upper just to see how it performs. Or maybe one of my 9mm upppers.

I will also add that after reading those threads I tested all 3 of my lowers with Pmags, Lancer Warfighters, Troy mags and Brownells aluminum mags and all of them fit, locked and dropped just fine.

I wouldnt even worry about using one as a full fledged .223 its really not that big of deal the only concerns I had is the trigger looks like it plastic as does the mag catch and I wonder if the hammer is also ? Anyone have the New Frontier that can answer my question . It appears as we could build a cheap rifle for about $498 shipped to the door

Pretty much everything on the New Frontier is plastic; hammer, levers and catches included.
