NEW!! James Madison Tactical Gen 2 Polymer/Composite Lower

Posted on July 7th, 2014 by ar15news

James Madison Tactical has made a great name for themselves in the 80% Polymer/Composite AR Lower market by making what I would say is the best 80% Polymer / Composite lower out there. They went to great lengths to strengthen the necessary areas that have been failure points on other polymer lowers in the past but the material itself also makes a huge different. The guys at JMT have spent most of their career manufacturing amazing $1,000,000 kit Jet planes called the ViperJet that you can build at home. They then took their expertise in AERO Space polymers that are strong enough to be used in airplanes and used that same material to build a high quality, reinforced AR15 80% lower. The Gen 1 lowers were fantastic but now JMT has upped their game with the Gen 2 lower adding lots of enhancements.

Some of the enhancements are to further strengthen the design but a couple are cosmetic and they look awesome. One such upgrade is the webbing pattern on the magwell that is reminiscent of the PMAG design. The other is they removed the large “JMT” logo from the side of the magwell and replaced it with a much smaller logo on the Pivot Pin Spring Housing.  Oh yeah, the machining jig you need to complete the lower comes FREE with the purchase every lower and the price is just $99.95 each. Take a few minutes to read the official press release below and check out the pics of the new lower. Purchase links are at the bottom.

New Lower Pricing!! James Madison Tactical 80% Lower with Jig

Posted on October 28th, 2013 by ar15news

Last month we helped introduce you guys to the brand new James Madison Tactical 80% carbon/composite lower receiver. There were a few things that really set this 80% lower apart from other non-aluminum 80% lowers such as the fact that all of the JMT lowers come with a FREE machining jig, the JMT lower has a threaded metal insert for the grip screw, the quality materials and reinforced areas on the lower, etc. Up until now, the JMT lower and Jig retailed for about $150 but the guys at James Madison Tactical weren’t satisfied with that. They want to make sure anyone can afford this lower and wouldn’t have any reason to not choose JMT. They’ve spent the last week or so working out a deal to purchase a massive amount of material thus giving them a lower cost that they can then pass on to their customers. Effective immediately, the James Madison Tactical 80% carbon/composite lower receiver including the Jig will be just $99.95. These lowers are seriously awesome. Check out the pictures below, then head on over to JamesMadisonTactical.com to purchase yours.

NEW!! James Madison Tactical 80% Polymer Lower and Jig

Posted on September 16th, 2013 by ar15news

The other day I received a call from the guys over at James Madison Tactical. At the time I really had no idea what products they offered or had even heard of them. That makes perfect sense as they’ve spent most of their career building amazing $1,000,000 kit Jet planes called the ViperJet that you can build at home. Recently they realized their expertise in AERO Space polymers that are strong enough to be used in airplanes could also be used to build a high quality, reinforced AR15 80% lower that actually looks and performs like a lower you might want to own. And FYI, the jig comes FREE with the purchase of a lower.

Basically what they’ve designed is a lightweight polymer AR15 80% lower that is more of a hybrid as it is made from a blend of polymer and fibers. Its been reinforced in multiple areas including around the buffer tube assembly area to address issues seen in other polymer lowers. This lower actually looks more like a nice billet lower. It has a flared magwell with grip serrations on the front and an integrated winter trigger guard. From what I’ve been told they have put thousands of rounds through these lowers with zero issues. Each lower also comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty too.

One of the things that keep most people from doing 80% lowers is the combination of the cost and that you need to buy a machining jig separately. Obviously some of us realize it has nothing to do with money but is all about creating your own unregistered lower. Well JMT understood that people didn’t want to purchase a lower and then have to buy a jig too and decided to include a reusable jig with each 80% lower. You can check out pictures of the jig below.

In short, this is the first Polymer AR15 lower that has had interested me even one bit. Most of the ones I’ve seen in the past look like something my neighbor could have made in his garage with a waffle maker. I don’t own any Polymer lowers yet but if I do this will most likely be the one I would go with. Another cool thing is that James Madison Tactical is in the process of securing their FFL so they can produce 100% machined lowers but for now you’ll just have to finish them yourselves. Check out the short video below and then head on over to JamesMadisonTactical.com to check out what they have to offer.
