Great points guys, really appreciate it. The torture test they have online where they're applying force to the mag wells and the aluminum cracked and couldn't drop the mag to where the polymer went right back to normal, was intriguing. Think of handguns. I've shot thousands of rounds through my Glock and other polymer pistols and they're perfect. If they can make a Boeing Dreamliner out of carbon composite they can make a quality AR out of polymer.

Remember the Glock was engineered for a polymer frame and today it's a proven design. The AR was engineered for aluminum receivers and also has stood the test of time.

No doubt in time a reliable poly lower will come along but for now I'm in no rush to be the one to test the latest one coming down the block.
