My Personal Opinion.

I owned several AR Aluminum lowers over the years.

A little over 2 years ago I purchased a Plum Crazy Firearms Polymer Lower.  All my friends told me I was crazy.
Coming from a background in modifying cars my whole life I was used to trying new things.
After being told a thousand times by other friends that it would be better suited for a 22LR conversion,
I decided to drop on a CMMG 22LR Upper.  It worked great.  I was impressed with the 4.5 lbs trigger.
It is a very accurate 22LR AR.   Also noted that the upper and lower have no play whatsoever when rocked back and forth.

I have a Bushmaster AR15 20" Chrome Lined Varmint Rifle, Full Float, Konus 6-24x-44mm Scope.
Custom Compensator.  The lower is a Bushmaster with a Giessle National Match Trigger.  Sniper Grip
and Custom M4 Stock with Monopod.

With me shooting (I not the greatest) I was getting 1" groups at 100 Yards.
So.....one day I just happened to bring both ARs to the range and decided to swap lowers.

To my surprise I started to shoot tighter groups.  5/8" at best.  A friend who was with me and is a better
shot did less than 1/2" groups at 100 yards and the AR felt way smoother.

After that I was sold!!!  I sold all 5 of my aluminum lowers and replaced them with Polymer Lowers.

Until you have really used one you can't really say anything bad!

Plum Crazy actually had a employee revolt.  The employees took the molds and went and on to form
New Frontier Armory over a year ago.  They improved the lower by making it 2 Durometer points harder.

I still have my original PlumCrazy Lower which has over 6000 Shots on the trigger and still feels new.
Over 2500 shots on 5.56/223 and 3500+ shots of 22LR

Good to know first-hand experience. It's piqued my interest, but I've been unwilling.

i shot my friends plum crazy lower he bought from you with an upper he put together on the delton website. i can honestly say it shoots just as good as  any other ar i've shot, and all together cost less than 700 bucks... i'm a believer, but for some reason, hesitant to own one myself...

I feel you it took me a long time to accept mine.  Also Glock had a hard time too remember?

I remember when Glock was first introduced.  Nearly everyone was a doubting Thomas.

I pick up a lower for my 22lr upper. I am very impressed with the fit (very tight). Also a very nice trigger about 4-5 lbs. I'll give a more detail report once I get it to the range and do a little shooting with it. All in all I would buy another one.

Make sure the hammer clears!  It must be checked on 9mm and 22LR installations.
Thanks!

wonder how long that receiver will last under the tension of a sling.

Hey Dexter,

Which upper would you recommend for this receiver? i hear that the Stag 2H I believe was a decent upper.

They are all good. We dont recommend you use and plastic or composite upper recievers. They flex too much.

Ie Bushmaster carbon and Chiappa
