Plastic AR15: ATI Omni Vs New Frontier




What do you think about this video?

SdawgArmy: Id love to find out if polymer lowers could be field proven. Anyone use one for say a rifle dynamic course? I own one but cant afford to go out and run the crap out of it. Hasnt failed for recreation but would love to know if it could hang if needed.

CPHannigan: I'm glad I'm not the only one who holds that opinion.

dogshmog: Both are garbage.

GunWebsites: can't get them to quit squishing to that narrow view

Glock Holiday: Im selling a new ATI for $300 Socal!!

Roger Suttles: You would have a super light 22 long rifle if you used one of these lowers and a Feather Light 22 upper kit!

joekim1983: sweet, I actually grabbed an ati omni stripped lower, and saving it for now. I'm thinking im gonna do a lightweight 14.5" (w/ pinned muzzle device) cqb build with it in the future, probably gonna tacti-cool that one with lights and lasers for a property-defense weapon.

Moonfood78: They should make M&P 15-22 like parts kits for cheap custom 22 ar's that are fun to build up with cheap polymer grip, rails, folding stocks and crap! :D i'd buy.

johnt115: i have built 3 AR with the ATI lowers and 2 with the NFA the ATI went together with out any problems the NFA needed a lot of filing and it was a pain to get out the take down pin with the upper attached

MikeTango6: Which one do you prefer are you going to do a build on any 1 of them.

funa mota: What you think of new frontier lowers ? Thumbs up or down because I order one in pistol

Theyoungrepper: wich would you reccommend for a first build?

righyanb: I was looking at some of the new frontier polymer lowers on gun broker, but am very hesitant. Now even more. I think I'll wait and get aluminum.

AnobisBloodwing: Must be a lot lighter than the normal lowers..... But why buy plastic lowers wen you can print them even cheaper =)

Bone Sword: I bought 3 Cav15's after Yeager talked about them in one of he's vid's.

HardWayLearnt: Is anyone making a metal reinforced polymer lower? Alum at the stress points? I think we would all balk if our poly framed handguns didn't have metal frame rails and such.

GunsNpolitics: ARE there gals at gun websites? Just curious.

37Sith: Love my New Frontier LW15 lower! Durable as hell, smooth lines, not cheap.... Not 1 issue in EVER......

Hiluxtaco: First... to wonder why I couldn't comment the first time around.

gnborg: Gwebs have you tested the polymer lowers? I value your opinion over some other channels that have done videos on them. Was thinking about buying one but unsure if they will hold up.

GunWebsites: ATI hands down

TheDrb27: Patriot Arms is another with a try it warranty and is top notch like OMNI. Or maybe that's what they call them in Ca.

Jeffrey Wydra: After stocking up on NFS lowers - what I can't figure out is why they don't make these with flared magwell & sweet enhanced trigger guard - ala POF or Noveske, & maybe some texturing on the front of the magwell? It couldn't imagine it costing much more to fill the mold with a similar amount polymer.

nsz85: I think it is YouTube. You are the second legit channel to have this happen to in the last week. Very weird...

Snake Plissken: By the time we can get a high quality polymer lower it will be illegal to own.

Gabe Musashi: why doesn't anyone make a poly .22lr lower? that way ain't no bitchin about it breakin cuz of recoil.

37Sith: Never have had 1 issue with my LW15 lower.... Love it!

watashiwahjolan: Ati is not garbage new fronyier is cheap looking and rough looking

ArtisanTony: You want crude? Wait till I print one :)

leadfarmer556: weakest part on those polymer lower is the threaded end for the buffer tube.seen one of those 3d printed lowers snap off the end of the buffer tube. granted the polymer lower would be stronger,i will stick with aluminum lowers!

Jesse Sisolack: Well if you are one of those strange people who like to have 10 variations of a rifle so you can pick your favorite for the day, then the printer makes more sense. I enjoy going into my armory and standing there thinking to myself, do I want the shorter barrel AR today, or the longer, and then do I want the fixed or telescoping stock...and which sight set do I want for today? Kind of like a woman with shoes. We both have way more than we will ever need, haha.

GunWebsites: this is the fourth one.. the file is good, not sure whats wrong

Jeremy Sciortino: does anybody know where or if i could possibly get a hold of a company that makes 80% polymer lowers for an ar. i know i can get aluminum but i think polymer would be more of what im looking for. thanks in advance

Duke Silver: I built my first AR a few months ago using the ATI lower and I have absolutely no complaints...It has worked flawlessly....I had to build my AR on a very tight budget and $39.99 for the ATI was hard to turn down

C172Pilotdude: Did you see the new E3 Arms Omega15 lower yet?

josueguzman602: Where can I get one

rahliE05: Wouldn't use them on anything more than a .22

watashiwahjolan: Ok plum crazy are hard to find ATI come instock occasionally New Frontier always on some website Current market Prices: Plum crazy $60-90 ATI $45-70 New Frontier $ 59-80 Frankly by look ATI's have a nice look and feel and just feel strong. New Frontier feel like those thin legos you can bend and flex. Plum crazy is strong like ati but can look rough... Availability get nfa Quality get ati Or if you can find a plum crazy its tough So overall I would choose to wait for an ati instock over nfa

William Dunne: New frontier is amazing! Bought one when the special was 99 dollars for a complete lower, put it through hell and still works amazing

Jonny Walker 447: i just got done watching the "3d printed guns" craps crazy. and then this pops up the next day.

KelvinSmoke: had to watch before it was private again

walperstyle: People are all concerned about these 3d printing, but really, every city has several machine shops that could do a better job. Plastics and polymers are going to eventually get there in everyones house, but its costly. Spend $5000 for a 3d printer to make a $50 part, vs go to a machine shop, make a friend and build it out of good material for $800. I know we all want to avoid the serial numbers, but be wary,Don't be one of those nutsif you do go this route. You ruin it for everyone else.

bulbinking: Can't wait for printed parts to become mainstream. Can you imagine buying a lower for less then 200 bucks?

DobermansRock: I have never used one but I guess if you just shooting on a bench they are no problem. Probably be fine for most low impact range work. What I am guessing is where the buffer tube screws on could break easily. So you would'nt want to go and try to butt stroke someone with one. If you did you better make it count the first time and have a backup weapon. I vote for the ATI. Both would be great for a .22 though.

TheRifle308: So, after these first impressions, how would you say these lowers compare to the Plum Crazy plastic lowers?

URBAN AMERICAN TACTICOOL: The video was distorted due to his time traveling. He always does that.

TingTongMahk: Very happy with my NFA lower, which came completely assembled and ready to attach.

emberoze: darn caboki porn music .D

nineonmychest: Was made with 3d printer

wrksnfx: Have you ever seen Plumbcrazy's lower? If you have which would you prefer?
