Did this video help you?

killallendings: You are the man!! I was expecting you to run over the lower. You freaking threw it against your SUV!! Very original.

SOKO MAN: This is the best real life torture test I've seen, kudos!

Urban Vendetta: magpul should make a lower

KTMOSLEY5591: I will never use a polymer lower.. lightweight is nice... but the fact they break so easy isnt worth it...

TheActiveAssault: the intro made me lol

Jake Thomas: if it had an aluminum mag in it it would not break. polymer mag, no promises. In most cases damage to a gun will ruin everything BUT the polymer lower. However if your buffer is stock, the buffertube threading could be taking a beating from extra gas pressure, and eventually break, like I have seen in forums on AR pistol forums. DON'T use them for a 9mm lower, and even for a 5.56, get a heavyier buffer, and a stronger spring. This way more energy is absorbed. You may want to consider upgrading your hammer pins too.

Chris Bonsee: Poymeeer lolololololololololol

D Johnson: Because, you know, I always throw my weapons in the air, throw them against vehicles, and drive over them... I want to see you do that to your good weapons...I guarantee you won't be as rough with them! Throwing around a $50 stripped lower is a lot safer then driving over your prize AR! Apparently polymer lowers are only for people who respect their weapons! 

My Damn Channel: Not trying to be a hater bro, but run over your aluminium lower, and throw it, catch it on fire and you will be surprised when its bent, and your mags will not load properly I bet. 

Joe Bennett: A little Gorilla glue will take care that for you.

David Wood: Not for use as a S.H.T.F. gun or Zombies but why not just have fun with it gun? the price point is right and yes aluminum is not the material I would choose for a serious gun gun either. Give me milled receivers out of the finest steel and I am happy. So it weights alot more but thats a tradeoff I can live with

atnipjoe: for going to the range they are fine in combat no if you have to go prone and use your but stock to brake your full you will bust your buffer tube off on the other hand it only has to last long enough to find a new used weapon ie never fired only dropped once 

Marksman2oo7: That's all i needed to see, thanks. The price is tempting but i don't waist money. 

sailaway01: You opened my eyes THANKS!!!

richard Turk: You really are a head case. Sound like an AR snob to me. I have an ATI polymer lower I have used for a few years and its tight as hell still.Have a Bushmaster M4 upper. Just wanted to mention that I use a Timney 3lb trigger and slide fire stock as well. I run it hard too and I do mean hard so the gun is no case queen. I have not had one bit of trouble with cracking or pins drifting . I have gotten the gun so hot you couldn't touch it.The lower is still in perfect condition no swelling in the mag well no pivot pin holes deforming,still mates perfectly with the upper too. I would say the gun has close to 10,000 rounds thru it by now with no issues.

Aaron Bradbury: All I know is, my Omni lower receiver broke at the rear takedown pins after only 600 rounds of factory ammo. Never dropped, never abused. I'll be sticking with aluminum from now on. 

Tyler Johns: I just bought New Frontier's polymer lower and it works great. Its for a budget build, and I was able to get the fully assembled lower with trigger assembly, buffer tube and stock, and pistol grip for $100. And its extremely light. I think ill probably swap out the hammer later on to a metal one, don't have too much faith in a polymer hammer running for long periods of time.

mike gee: Thought i would learn something, about the polymer lower-NOPE, more bubba fuddism ......

David Bowman: You are a retard. I don’t know what you do with your guns, but I shoot mine. I don’t use them as hammers, clubs, torque wrenches, fire axes or hitch pins to pull a 5th wheel. You are the same brand of idiot that smashes Glocks with a sledge hammer and then claims they are inferior as a gun. I have 2 of these lowers that I have turned into good rifles and they shoot just fine all day long. The next time I have to throw my rifle at a parked car, I will ensure to consult you on the proper gear.

stoggy: turn it into fake poop. Scare your friends with it.

Sevens: Seth Taylor, you're a moron if you think aluminum will stand being throw around and against crap without warping and bending. 

seth taylor: This is a M4 torture test with an aluminum lower for the people saying polymer is just as good as aircraft aluminum Daniel Defence M4 Torture Test Promo.mp4.mp4

James Stinnette: Was thinking about buying one of these but you changed my mind. Thank you for the video.

1quikz28: you're a freakin idiot

Myles Reed: what the freak is wrong with you, "hey i got an ATI OMNI Lower, lets freaking light it on fire"

mark J: Thank you for making the video, someone had to do it. I'll probably get haters on me for saying this, but I'm sticking with aircraft aluminum. IMO the biggest tell was when you threw it at the Blazer and the buffer tube ring broke.

Sevens: One of the dumbest "torture" tests I've watched. What the hell do you expect to happen by throwing crap up against a hard surface and running it over with a multiple thousand pound vehicle o.O

Dee Garkie: put 100 rounds of 50 Beowulf through it and i will consider your test 

Cmoth040: I bought one, all the pin holes are spec and everything else lines up just fine. Will be building a plinker out of it. No complaints just realistic expectations.

xman577: my best friend and myself just built a couple Omni lowers. unfortunately we have the same problem has some other people have had .holes don't line up on the lower receiver. the rear take down are off center . we both have paper weights. PS I'm going to get a hold of omni and see what their warranty will do about this.

Shooter7point62: I wonder how an aluminum receiver fares...

cacapoo8: Funny how we run 4 polymer FMK receivers while running drills, putting these things through their paces and we've never had a problem with them. We don't go gorilla slamming them into trucks, but we do huck them over fences, we land on them, I've seen one tumble down a rock front end over end for a good 60 vertical feet, and it's still going strong. In comparison, the only AR lower I've ever had fail was a forged receiver that cracked at the rear take down pin. This video is moronic to say the least.

Montanan Millionaire: Just for folks watching...it's not a proper technique to test a lower by throwing it..It's not a spear, it's a firearm. How about for your next video, you rip up and set a $100 bill on fire...? :)

Vincent Vendetti: Couldn't just do a standard run and gun with a few hundred rounds? Maybe drop the whole build on the ground a few times and run it over with your vehicle? Would that lower have broke like that fully built?

ClarkTheShark: Not a valid test. if you are going to do something like this, use an aluminum receiver and do the same tests. I think you may be surprised when the aluminum yields just like the plastic. I have both types - like the aluminum better. But polymer is a valid alternative.

Jaime Rawlins: is it illegal to burn plastic? lol what a waste of $. but I thought it was funny

RockRiver8: Would a standard aluminum lower be able to withstand being run over by a Chevy Blazer? I know an aluminum lower would not burn like that but I still like the thought of manufacturers experimenting with polymer so as to make weapons lighter & less expensive to manufacture. I remember how the Glock was derided but my how things have changed. I can protect myself for 1/2 the price of a 1911 and field strip the Glock in 1/2 the time. Plus the Glock will usually run reliably right outa the box. 

chipsanford: do that to a Glock

gungeek1992: I gotta say i prefer the standard aluminum lower but it can be that bad! (unless you throw it in open flames) after all the SCAR has a poly lower and I never hear anyone complain about that. 

seth newman: Magpul ones would make it( if they made lowers)..the pmags survived a truck running over them. Magpul make a lower plz!

jessdigs: I have a few forged aluminum lowers, but my favorite lower is the Franklin Armory Billet Aluminum Lower, it is machined from a solid block of aluminum, and has a beefed up flared mag well, a factory machined in enlarged trigger guard, and quick detach sling swivels near the buffer tube, so you don't have to attach your single point sling on the buffer tube plate. It is pretty nice. http://www.franklinarmory.com/PRODUCTS_BILLET_LOWER.html

jeremy beverly: Lmfao i told everybody it was a pos.

lordbutz: da bears

Guntrician: LMAO! Plastic has no place in an AR lower no matter how you use it.

PrepperKip: Thanks for watching brother.

Rick Gollwitzer: can you do it with an aluminum

Aaron Sanders: I have had both ATI and NFA polymer lowers and the ATI broke while installing the LPK and The NFA has seen hundreds of rounds and bumps and bruises. I will never buy an ATI again.

Lawson11b: Temporary Solutions Polymer Lower... I would buy these and keep a few around if they seemed stronger and cost a third as much. Having seen them in person I know how chintzy they feel.

PrepperKip: Thanks bro

MadMetalManiac74: I got one of these but machined alum.
