I went to about 10 straight shows in a row and came home with nothing except $10 wasted on the show and $5-25 wasted in fuel depending on the vehicle I drove.
There's a show at the OP Convention center which is 4 minutes from my girlfriends place this coming weekend, think I might actually go waste another $10 to check out the Obama panicked overpriced ****...
Yeah, it's a Plum Crazy poly lower. This is my first AR so I kind of wanted to build a fun but cheap plinker to get a feel for what I do and don't like. The complete lower was $120 so if it's complete crap, I'll just throw a .22 upper on it and get a nicer lower for the 5.56 upper.
I still really like my Plumb Crazy lower. Recently replaced my fire control group with brand new DPMS set I got off a local board for free.. Much crisper trigger pull, however it took some work to get the fire selector fit properly.
Only failure I've seen personally with Poly lowers, my friends trigger broke:
Heh, a local guy actually captured on video when his PC lower failed. Both pins broke simultaneously and the upper looked like it was trying to jump off the lower. I'm somewhat skeptical unless he's in the habit of recording all of his range sessions. Seems odd that he'd just happen to have the camera running when his lower failed in a dramatic fashion. I'll have to go find the video and repost it here.
Bah, can't find the video, but he apparently made a GIF from it.
Also found out when I was looking for the video that he'd shot about 100 rounds through it with the Slide-Fire stock (mimics full auto operation), and was using a .40S&W blowback upper when it sheared the pins.
