    I had one. Unless you know what you are doing and familiar with proper machining, do not buy it.

      I'm not a fan of polymer receivers. Plus you can pickup a quality Anderson lower for less than $50 out the door from a few of the forum sponsors.

      Not worth the effort in my opinion.

        I think only the jig is polymer. But you can use it to complete an aluminum lower.

        But those aren't "ghost gunz"

        I'll admit, having a gun the government knows absolutely nothing about has its appeal. But a finished stripped lower that's hassle-free has even more appeal. And I wouldn't even go ultra cheap on them. I don't hear great things about Anderson and PSA. I think in the future, I'll just go with LRB.

          This is a polymer lower as well and the jig it comes with is one time use.

            Correct. My mistake.

          I bought one of theses a year or so ago with the intention of using it to practice on before i bought a "real" 80% to actually build. Some day I will try it. There are better 80% jigs out there if you want a "ghost gun". With the potential for Hildebeast in November , buying 80% blanks is not a bad idea.

            Group buy and build party. Do I have a Second on that?

              Plastic? No thanks.

                My reservations as well, so my thought was a group build not necessarily this one but one the group thought was a good choice.

                  I'd be in on a group build

                    Just buy the 6061 or 7075 aluminum 80% lower and do it the right way.
                    Don't waste your time with pplastic lowers.
                    I have a jig to lend out if anyone needs.
