Other manufacturers of 80% lowers (alloy) are above the $100 price mark and need the jig which is another $100 minimum. We have a built in jig system cutting the cost to the consumer.

You're in Bako? Available for help on this if I buy one (not really too mechanically inclined!)

We do not have on hand assistance available. We are available via phone and email most all the time. Legally you have to complete the build yourself.

Good question! While we have yet to run anything that gives us exact tolerances, I'll tell you what we have done. First, we work directly in the r&d process with the mold makers and the machinist to make sure the material used is stronger than any other polymer lower available. Second, we have done several of our own builds (all in the name of research) and shot the heck out of those. We've also done some fun things around the shop like take a blowtorch to a lower with surprising results. We had a 300lb guy wrenching and hanging on one that was clamped by the buffer area. We finally got one to crack that way.

I can't tell you anything except these things are STRONG! We haven't had any failures and if there ever was a problem we do offer a lifetime warranty.

Sign me up. I am good on lowers for a long while but would buy a few clear for the novelty. It would be cool to see the gun "in action".

EP Lowers offers an 80% completed AR-15 lower receiver unlike any other in the firearms industry. We offer the first ever 80% polymer lower available and the only 80% lower that requires no jig to complete. We are calling it the EP-80.

Why have polymer lowers failed in the past? Perhaps: 1. Polymer lowers where manufactured identical in dimension to aluminum alloy lowers. 2. Polymer lowers where manufactured from material that was not as strong as aluminum alloys. 3. There was no consideration in design for a change in the material.

Our lowers are constructed of an ultra strong fiber reinforced polymer. The exact composition is proprietary but I will say its much stronger than any 100% polymer lower available and although we believe our material would be strong enough as is, Our design reinforces the area of the front pivot pin holes and the buffer tube area with additional material where lesser polymer lowers from other manufacturers have failed.

Our product is very strong and durable; much more so than any other polymer lower. You see polymer lowers are injection molded; in the case of our product they are injection molded and then have to survive being milled by our customers. So our 80% lowers are really required to be much stronger for this reason. Also we wanted to have the best product out there and I think we have got that.

There are distinct advantages to going with an 80%. Yes its going to take some work but not without instilling a sense of accomplishment when completed; and our lowers are the easiest and cheapest to complete because our lowers require no jig and no special tools. In that respect we have a distinct advantage within the 80% market.

Why no jig? The fire control pocket is dissimilar in color so it’s clearly outlined what needs to be removed. In the case of the black lowers just mill out the white and leave the black area and you’re done. Fire control and pivot pin areas are clearly marked for drilling. As with standard metal lowers it will take a competent person to complete them; however they are lighter and stronger than alloy. Our product is made in the USA; and we offer a lifetime limited warranty.

We offer multiple colors; these colors are solid so unlike anodized or painted lowers there is no surface coating to scratch; the colors is the same throughout so if it gets scratched just buff it out good as new.

Well, here's my experience:

I finished the lower over the weekend, and I have to say selling this as a blem would be insulting. Selling it as a non blem is just ridiculous.

I paid full price. I paid for the return of the first rather pathetic defect. I was promised to be credited for the return shipping but never was.

I was promised that if they clearly didn't know where the rear detent holes belonged they would send one side undrilled so I'd only have to fill and drill one side, which they didn't.

Their idea of warranty is sending out a replacement as bad or worse, and you get to pay return shipping each time you want to see if you get an in spec lower.

In addition to the rear holes being pathetically off (and not even lined up with each other this time), all of the detent holes and the grip screw hole had to be opened up, the safety selector holes weren't lined up with each other, and the interior is full of air pockets so there are voids everywhere, and the finish of the exterior is uneven and looks like crap.

I was trying to give this product a fair go, but frankly it just sucks. It is inferior to its competition in almost every category. I have my doubts that the blems were anything different from the full price units (IE, it was just a "sale" to get rid of the crap and not have a warranty for everything being out of spec, not just blemished), and if they were anything worse that what I got, that is pretty scary.

Order #1154 in case anybody is doubting. I wish EPL was half as good at making lowers as they are at making videos, but they aren't.

I bought and built a James Madison Tactical lower, and built it as well. Flawless. No fit issues. The holes on the jig were actually lined up with each other. Detent holes are sized right. The grip screw hole is threaded and reinforced. I also have a pair of polymer 80 lowers on order that I'm waiting on. Both seem like better options for everything except maybe base color
