ronin2167: They use metal inserts now on the buffer tube, but I doubt it would still
withstand being thrown against your truck. LOL
SOKO MAN: This is the best real life torture test I've seen, kudos!
CRAIG HANSEN: I've been wanting to see a real test! Yours is as real as it gets! I agree
with you, it is disappointing! It broke hitting the thin sheetmetal of your
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
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.
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.
killallendings: You are the man!! I was expecting you to run over the lower. You freaking
threw it against your SUV!! Very original.
KTMOSLEY5591: I will never use a polymer lower.. lightweight is nice... but the fact they
break so easy isnt worth it...
Joe Bennett: A little Gorilla glue will take care that for you.
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
Urban Vendetta: magpul should make a lower
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!
Chris Bonsee: Poymeeer lolololololololololol
David Wood: Not for use as a S.H.T.F. gun or Zombies but why not just have fun with it
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
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
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
TheActiveAssault: the intro made me lol
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?
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
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.
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
Marksman2oo7: That's all i needed to see, thanks.
The price is tempting but i don't waist money.
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.
sailaway01: You opened my eyes THANKS!!!
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
Dee Garkie: put 100 rounds of 50 Beowulf through it and i will consider your test
mike gee: Thought i would learn something, about the polymer lower-NOPE, more bubba
Myles Reed: what the freak is wrong with you, "hey i got an ATI OMNI Lower, lets freaking
light it on fire"
Shooter7point62: I wonder how an aluminum receiver fares...
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...? :)
stoggy: turn it into fake poop. Scare your friends with it.
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
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
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
Jaime Rawlins: is it illegal to burn plastic? lol what a waste of $. but I thought it
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
Sevens: Seth Taylor, you're a moron if you think aluminum will stand being throw
around and against crap without warping and bending.
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.
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.
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.
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.
jeremy beverly: Lmfao i told everybody it was a pos.
lordbutz: da bears
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.
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.
