Default New Frontier Lower

I know it's been discussed before. Has anyone seen any updates on them? Is it worth the $50? It's about the only lower I can find in stock at the moment. Thoughts? Opinions from the gurus??

I'd buy one for a range toy, non serious use gun. Just to try out. I'm curious!

That's all it would be. It will be a long process. May have to get one. Next few weeks I'll post a build thread I hope.

I found an ATI/Omni polymer lower (brand new version released 8/2012) came complete with a metal parts kit already assembled for 109.99. Which is better than the new frontier for the sheer fact they don't use polymer lower parts kits. I am about to mate it up with a DPMS panther lite16 for my wifes ar. We will see how it turns out when its done. The few local ar enthusiast's I have talked to seem to really like the polymer lowers...lets see if they know what they are talking about.

I won't use polymer lowers. I know they are cheap in price tags. But there are cheap alumunium lowers out there too.
One thing for sure i always hear good things about NFA polymer lowers. In fact NFA is my fav local gun store.

KY , Do your self a favor and get something that could last you and several family members on down the line and possibly forever. Im not a big fan of the poly ones , I own poly pistols but there different , You have pins that rotate and it will over time wear out quicker than alum . They can warp and are just not as durable IMHO
In stock and ready to ship . $99 I own several of these and they have a fabulous fit and finish
