It seems like a ton of new AR-15 lowers have been hitting the market over the past few months. From lightweight magnesium alloy lowers and polymer 80% lowers to jigless 80% lowers. In case you couldn’t get enough news about lowers here’s something new, EP Lowers is working on a clear 80% lower. No you read that right, a clear AR-15 lower. EP Lowers didn’t go into specifics on what their new lower is made out of other than it contains a polycarbonate. Why a clear lower you ask? I have no idea, but it looks pretty interesting. It might be a good way to demonstrate how an AR-15 functions, and a good excuse to build another AR. EP Lowers posted a sneak peek of their new lower on their Facebook page and even hinted that they were working on a clear upper as well.
