A transparent polymer 80% AR-15 lower receiver from Eighty Percent Lowers:
The announcement was made as a “coming soon” on the EP Lowers facebook page. People like these 80%’ers because you don’t need to buy them through an FFL. You’re going to need some tools and some time to finish them though… as you can see in this video it takes around an hour with hand tools if you know what you’re doing. Definitely a gimmick, but if you need a project to kill some time why not right? It would be funny if that 2nd polymer that you have to mill out was found to be soluble in some type of solution, so no milling was actually required. I don’t know the intricacies of 80% law but I’m sure the ATF would shit bricks and shut something like that down though.
They have several colors you can buy their lowers in already, and they are all $100 over on their website.
Thoughts? Is transparency something that you’re currently lacking in kit and you feel you need?
