My ar has an ati polymer lower. No issues at 200+ rounds.

I bought the stripped lower from psa along with their standard lpk and an A1 style stock. Everything went together well and the loiter mated up with a del-ton upper nice and tight.

i dont own one, but i was interested in one a few months ago when my lgs got a few in stock. they look to be well made, they are certainly lightweight and comfortable to hold. from what i saw of it firsthand, if i hadnt gone with my first love of wooden furniture guns, i would have bought it, looks and feels like a nice gun.

Check ar15/com, These are known to have several issues. Most with the uppers.
Personally I have seen several fail, this is a case where cheap means cheap and not like a highpoint where cheap means inexpensive.
Save a few more pennies and get a better name brand...
I just build another one with parts from PSA on their Black Friday sale.. watch their site,,get on the mailing list. My total cost after replacing handguards on upper with Mag Pul was $465. That includes a Blackhawk lower kit with enhanced pistol grip and stock.
They have blemished lowers for $50-65 all the time.
Just my 2 cents....

I bought one not too long ago


Put less than 80 rounds through it and had to take advantage of the warranty


The lower broke where the stock screws in, sending parts all over the range. I'm just glad I was the only one there at the time, and that whatever cause the rifle to break on me didn't hurt me.

They had to send me a whole new gun. When I got it back, I was leery, but took it out shooting anyways. Put about 100 rounds or so down range with no problems, but still didn't trust it. Traded it in for my Taurus PT1911 not long afterwards.

In my AO, you can buy a DPMS for $600, a DelTon for $650, even a Bushmaster Carbon 15 for $700. All would be a better buy that that thing.
