And I just ran 240 rounds at the range the day before with NO problems what so ever and also got complements from a couple guys. Here is the deal : stick to a well make lower like NFA and use a a real good LPK NO Plastic!!! I have seen LPK parts break personally two times. I don't tip toe with my gun at the range and I love it, I even got 6 mags of Tula ready to shoot tommorow!!!!!
BTW: I also have the Adams arms carbine piston kit installed and after I shot 240 the other day it looks as clean as it was before it was ever shot!

I really hate when the haters automatically slam poly lowers when then haven't even touched one nor shot one, I'm sure this sounds the same when Glock first came out I bet!
I didn't choose the lower it was the only thing around with out taking out a mortgage in January but I. The end it worked out GREAT! So please giver advice on knowledge not unverifiable option!

Mine is first hand knowledge. The polymers I have dealt with, to include NFA, were inferior to aluminum. Glad you have success with yours. Not a big fan personally, due to my experience with them. I know a few C15 owners who have had nothing but success with theirs, then I read about some that have issues with them cracking. Much probably depends on the owners. Since you probably won't be taking yours to Fallujah, yours might last longer than you. My AR's are aluminum, because I want mine to be ready for when we have to deal with Rosie O'Donnel and her lezbian zombie apocolypse.
