    Congrats on the build man. Why did you choose a polymer lower?

    Well the reason I chose the polymer lower receiver, in my own opinion I think it's the best.

    It's dirt cheap.

    It's stronger than all others.

    Yes it's ugly though.

    It weighs less than most .

    It will never scratch up.

    Honestly I think it's the best all around.

    The lower receiver doesn't take much abuse anyways I think when it comes to building a ar platform rifle that the best quality parts should be invested in the parts that take abuse, thus being the barrel, upper receiver and bolt carrier group.

    I agree with the last paragraph. I had a New Frontier starting out, and it was surprisingly well made. Liked the trigger and seemed pretty durable. I would get one if I was making a super lightweight AR. Hey, I may have just found a new project. Haha Nice rifle man

    Thank you sir. I didn't like the polymer internals of the new frontier so I installed mil spec rock river trigger assembly. Much more crisp .

    I'd get kns pins, because I'd worry about the trigger and hammer pins would wear the receiver really fast and become loose and fall out.

    I second this. I have had a customer bring a gun built on one of these recievers after ~2000 rds. Trigger and hammer pins were both sloppy from rotation. This is the reason even the best aluminum recievers I build on get drilled for stainless bushings for the pins to ride in. I also drill and tap for an adjuster screw to tighten the upper to lower fitup. Not necessary on mil carbine builds, I mostly build high end varmit guns. But nice if you want to take the AR to the next level. ;)
