Not one to rest on their laurels, Polymer80 is back at it with a world first. They are starting production on the world’s first reinforced AR10 308 lower. Following the Ares Armor raids by the ATF last year, many became hesitant to purchase such items. During this scary time I was in constant contact with Loran Kelley, the co-founder, and chief product architect at Polymer80. When news of the Ares Armor situation broke they were proactive in understanding and making sure their customers were safe . . .
Polymer80 reinforces all their lowers, so those broken polymer lowers you see in pictures on the internet, well they are not Polymer80 lowers. So while there are some billet or forged lowers to be had for 308, the polymer market has seen nothing until now.
Polymer80 is introducing the WarrHogg. The thicker octagonal buffer tube mount means it’s not a week point. It is also a perfect match for a Mega Arms or Sun Devil Octagon Upper assembly. Loren has promised me a sample, due sometime after the SHOT Show. Yes, I am totally excited, like a kid on Christmas morning.
They are scheduled to start shipping them on February 15th. Of course there is an incentive, too. Pre-sale sale pricing for $129.99 which will rise to $140.00 later. This falls in line with your typical billet lower, but you don’t need an expensive tool set to complete the build. As with all Polymer80 lower kits, you get the lower and jig, along with all the bits needed to complete the project. Their Pre-Sale starts on January 16th. You can order yours from Polymer80.
On a side note, for those who just hate plain black, Polymer80 does custom designs, and hydrodipping. They will also offer complete rifle kits for the 308 as well. If you are a fan of one-click shopping, this will suit you just fine.
The WarrHogg Design features:
– Unique reinforced polymer design with solid core design
– ATF compliant design
– Beefed up buffer tube ring and ribbing across the entire upper surface area.
– No-thread design on pistol grip area.
– Stiffened magwell, ultra-light design.
– Improved jig system with additional insert to assist with trigger hole drilling.
– End mill bit and drill bits included with kit.
