Re: Would you buy a polymer AR lower receiver?
While I don't own a AR now; I do plan to build one, and I believe that alloy aluminium is durable while being light.
As for polymer lowers:I'm not all familiar with them at all considering I just learned of their existence, but I know I would triple check its reputation. Polymer, can either awesome, or the worst (I prefer metal myself), but I know it will last a very long time even if it's in pieces. (Its a form of plastic, so it will not oxidize or biodegrade well)
I guess I'm saying, make sure it will last with repeated use. Since it's not very expensive (Relatively speaking.) buy it and test it out.
