Polymer80 is now pre-selling the new G150 80% lower. According to Polymer80, the new G150 features “a solid core design, stiffened magwell and beefier buffer tube housing.”
For $90, a shooter gets a single G150 unfinished AR-15 lower, a jig and the needed drill bits. Quantity purchases earn discounts, dropping the price to $76.50/each with an order of at least 10. Polymer80 projects a shipping date of June 1, 2014.

Many readers have expressed concern about the legalities of 80% lowers in light of the highly publicized Ares Armor case. Polymer80 has made several statements that a BATFE letter declaring the product legal is neither required nor admissible as a defense. While I believe that such a letter would be admissible, the idea of being pressured by government action into asking for a letter smacks of prior restraint. Nevertheless, Polymer80 stated on their Facebook page:
We are perusing [sic] a letter and will get one. But that is just a small piece of the larger puzzle.
Thanks to William for the tip!
