Default ECM 80-1 ar lower?

Does anyone have any experience with ECM out of Hawaii? I was looking at the polymer 80% lower, not really sold on polymer for 5.56 but figured I'd ask. I have a very TIGHT budget on this build, just looking to build a Chevy not a Cadillac. I'm just not sure if it will hold up.

There are aluminum lowers out there for less than 100 if you look, why plastic?

I'll check all those out thanks for the heads up. Just exploring all my options the thing with the ecm that attracted me was it's an 80%

I have the ECM billet lower and couldnt be happier with it. It is extremely well made and looks great. I know there is lots of talk about whether it is worth getting a polymer lower, but for me having an 80% lower would be worth it. I have been interested in getting one and if/when I do it will be the ECM lower for sure.

I went with EP Armory had great reviews and better prices. Couldn't get any info on the ECM. Might do a thread on my build

I like the looks of the ECM in either the aluminum 100% and/or 80% polymer. Looks like the Noveske Gen2, but cheaper. They've got a deal on Gunbroker.com for $250, you get one 100% aluminum lower and two 80% polymers. If it weren't for it being Christmas time, I'd be on it, but presents for my toddler take priority.
