Re: Would you buy a polymer AR lower receiver?
I'm not against "progress" or finding new and better materials.
But...and there's always a but, I blame the BIC lighter for the way things have become. The BIC lighter mentality.
Make it cheap and people will buy it even if it won't last. The BIC works but it doesn't last long. The Zippo, change the flint and add some lighter fluid and it will last a very long time. The BIC is cheap and soon goes in the trash.
I want my guns to outlast me.
I have read a lot of posts on many forums where it is said these poly receivers are good to go because they have fired 3000 rounds or 300 rounds...whatever the amount so they just know it's just fine.
That proves nothing to me. When the US military starts issuing poly M16's I'll change my mind. The military (hopefully) would test them hard and would determine if they really are good to go. Until then, they are just plastic toys to me.
