I wouldn't, personally, order a polymer lower. Read too much and been told by too many people about their cracking, not having the hammer strike hard enough to ignite a primer and other issues. Better to spend money once and get a solid lower made out of 7150 T6 aluminum than one made of plastic.

Enough complaints about quality and service, figure you would be plum crazy to order one.

Just built an AR with a Palmetto State Armory upper on top of a Plum Crazy lower. I haven't had any issues with it, but I haven't had it that long. I figured the price was such that I was willing to take a risk on it.

My thoughts:

Trigger is what you would expect of such an inexpensive lower. It will be replaced within the first year.

Not crazy about the stock, but it's just your average run of the mill adjustable stock. It will probably be replaced sometime down the road.

It locked up with the upper with no slop. No complaints at all about fit.

Safety is a little crunchy. There may be better safety switches out there, but not really important in my mind.

Mag release is solid. Magazines lock in place tight. No complaints.

All in all, unless the thing breaks in half, it's a real bargain. If you want to build an inexpensive recreational shooter, I'd recommend it. I would not recommend it if you want to run 3 gun with it or need it in a professional capacity. 10 years from now maybe the track record will be there for that.

I'm w/ the majority. To many pics of two piece poly receivers for my liking. Maybe as a 7th or 8th AR but not as a primary or even secondary.

If you are interested in poly lowers, also check out the New Frontier Armory models.
