I've been working on building my first AR-15 style rifle and went with an 80% lower from E P Lowers. The way the contest works, I sent in a video describing why I chose them. The video with the most views wins, and the contest runs through November 1st. I did a review of the lower as my video and its less than a minute and a half. Please help me get a few extra views. I cover weight, price, and other factors with the exact weight with an unloaded pmag. I would appreciate any help to boost my views. It may make or break your decision on buying one too! Thanks in advance! Either way, if I don't win, I can't wait to add an ar-15 to the arsenal!

EDIT: I think I fixed the link? Thank You, Undefined, for embedding the video. ( Post Below This One) I cant figure it out.

Never knew such a 80% lower existed that was easy to build without a jig.

They are polymer.

$100 for a polymer 80% lower is a bit high in my opinion.

Complete polymers are $45 (+ shipping and transfer fee of course)

ETA: It looks like EP lowers does make them in some cool colors though.

ETA2: They have $35 blemished 80% polymer lowers too... not bad

Question on the lower. How difficult was the dremel fire control part? Do you know weight savings over alum?
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 12:13:04 PM EST
Whew! Thank you to the person that fixed my original post. That was a lot of reading for such a short time! As for the pocket, it's pretty easy in my opinion. The sides are shy of mil-spec by a few hundreths, so even once you're past the white core you're still within a safe zone. The bottom pops out once you get the sides ground down, leaving a smooth surface on the bottom.

huntinchick1000 - If you want to get thousands of views, scroll up to your original post and click edit. Change the title to include the word "FIREMISSION:" at the front of the title and mention that you are A) Female and B) that there is a video in the thread.

It is a sad fact that this will attract hundreds of people to the thread like moths to a flame. General Discussions (aka GD) is kind of like a 6th grade classroom only with a slightly lower attention span.

arfcom allows "vote for me!" threads. As long as OP is not actually EP Lowers, it's ok.

It's how marketing works these days. "Company says, go forth and market my product! One of you will get paid."

I just recently came across this site during my research in what it would take to build an ar-15 from scratch. I figured id give it a shot and see how folks were around here. I like the info here. Most posts are pretty thorough when covering the assembling process.

Actually, I joined this site with no knowledge of it being sexually biased. I assume just as many women are fans of AR-15s as men are.

To be fair, she was instructed by a (seasoned member here) to alter the title to include that she was female, so as to garner notice. She followed instructions and *boom* here you are!

Just so. And fair warning, GD can get a little rough at times. A lot rough at other times. If you are thin skinned or tender-hearted, take heed and be very careful about where and what you post. The tech forums and Women Shooters forums aren't like that, but GD is a free for all, complete with Cheetos, purse swinging, slap fights, and name calling. Very few punches are pulled.

And we like it that way.



ETA: and this site is VERY predominantly male.
