In a market that it is now saturated with over priced 80% complete lowers, it takes a lot to get my attention. EP Lowers changed the game by releasing a "jig-less" lower that is polymer which I talked about in a previous post. EP Lowers recently teased out a photo of a new clear 80% lower, which I think would be an invaluable tool for those completing an 80% lower for the first time. EP has been hush, hush on the exact materials used to make the lower, but hey have made mentions of using "polycarbonate" and "kevlar reinforced nylon66" on their Facebook page.
So how easy are these lowers to make? If you fast forward about 19 seconds in the video above you'll hear how this guy built his 80% EP lower. Like their other lowers, the parts that need milling (or dremeling for that matter) are a different color so you know what needs to be removed. There are also a few holes that need to be drilled which shouldn't be too difficult.
This lower is schedule to drop on Friday, and I'm guessing should be similar in cost to the rest of their 80% complete lowers which are $100. As an added bonus, EP lowers is also selling 30 round Magpul "rebuild kits" for $20.
