Did this video help you?

Edward M: Ever do this test , or similar , with an aluminum one ?

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

altops: I've had my Plum Crazy Lowers for 7 years with no complaints even the plastic trigger group still works just used last sat to shoot up a salvage car.

MrDeathd: answered my question

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 Blazer door! 

porrsmurfen: Wow, this dude is so cool for throwing that reciever at his car. Dents and scratches don't phase Pvt. Pyle here one bit!

Jo Sanchez: all us gun lovin muthalovers know polymer for a lower could not be as reliable as metal lowers. p-p-period! awesome vid though! 

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

ronin2167: They use metal inserts now on the buffer tube, but I doubt it would still withstand being thrown against your truck. LOL

Finesseboxing: lol...this was too funny...cudos

108johnny: Just saved me from wasting my money- thanks for the video!

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

Aces Up: You really shouldn't worry about breaking the polymer lowers... little bit of super glue, everything will be all right. Maybe you could stuff a tube up in the grip with the spare batteries or tactical snacks................

darney darn: so ive seen your video, you like the New Frontier Armory Lower, but the ATI OMNI is junk? still reccomend the LW-15??

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. 

RElover22: Thanks for the video. I was concerned with the durability of one of these polymer lowers and you proved my concern was right.

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

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.

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

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

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. 

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

TheActiveAssault: the intro made me lol

Urban Vendetta: magpul should make a lower

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

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 

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! 

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.

sailaway01: You opened my eyes THANKS!!!

1quikz28: you're a freakin idiot

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 fuddism ......

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.

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.

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. 

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...? :)

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

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

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

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.

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.

chipsanford: do that to a Glock

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

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?

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.
