Excerpt from a Third Party Review at ApexGunsmithing.com
"I honestly can't find any sort of practical test that would harm this receiver or make it in any way inferior to an aluminum one."- Tom @ Apex Gunsmithing
Tennessee Arms Company is proud to offer our hybrid Nylon 6-6/ metal lower receiver. This stripped receiver is designed to accept any mil-spec lower parts kit. All colors are molded directly into and throughout the entire receiver so you never have to worry about wearing it off unlike a painted finish

Using the Metal inserts into a high impact hybrid receiver make the Tennessee Arms Receiver truly the Highest Strength/ Lightest weight hybrid receiver (5.6oz) on the market.
Federal law requires that you be 21 years or age or older to purchase a stripped receiver or frame. If a frame or receiver can only be made into a long gun (rifle or shotgun), it is still a frame or receiver not a handgun or long gun. However, they still are "firearms" by definition, and subject to the same GCA limitations as any other firearms. Please enter the phone number city and state of the licenced dealer you would like it shipped to when ordering.

Great receiver. Went together very easy. No burs and lightweight

Overall this lower receiver was very good for my .22 build. The only drawbacks were the place for the bolt catch was a little tight, and the fit to the upper is very tight to the point where I have to use a punch to open the takedown pin.

I ordered 5 of these and have assembled all 5. When I received them they had some burrs here and there on them which had to be cleaned up with an exacto knife. I also encountered a problem with the hole for the mag release buttons. It was pretty snug on all five and required a little more work with the exacto. It took a little longer to assemble because of these problems but it was no big deal. I haven't shot them yet but I'm sure they will function fine. I would buy these again but I would not recommend these to the first time builder because of this. The color on the FDE matches right up to Magpul accessories and they do look nice once deburred. The brass inserts looked great and worked perfectly. The guys at the gun store snubbed their nose at them. If you're not worried about the resale value and don't mind doing a little fitting I would say try them out.

I was hesitant on a polymer type lower. Finish I thought would have the usual molded part edges and parts wouldn't fit right. Dead wrong. I had my lower built and fitted in minutes (first time doing a build from scratch at that).

Shipping information was fast and accurate. Talked to one of the owners and was very pleased with their service and knowledge of their products. I am very happy with my receiver and everything fit together the same as any other spec receiver I have had in the past.

I haven't finished my build yet, but this receiver appears to be top-of-the-line. This was a great deal, and I'm sure I'll be back for more!

I purchased this hybrid receiver (my first) in black.During assembly I made a mistake and slightly damaged it.Concerned I called about it,David explained the damage wasn't structural and shouldn't matter. However,just to be safe,he offered to replace it.I mailed it in that day(Monday) and had a new one on Friday !!
Assembly went smoothly,fit and finsh were excellent.All parts fit well (some mil spec and some not.)The finished receiver is sturdy,attractive and lightweight.
I would recomend products from Tennessee Arms,I hope they increase their product line.

Ordered one of these to see how good they were for the sale price of 45 bucks. Placed the order and it shipped the next morning. Had it a few days later. That is awesome with everyone taking 3-5 days to ship stuff these days.
The lower was in great shape and the quality is great as well. No heavy molding lines or excess flashing (polymer) blocking holes or along edges, which translates into quicker build times.
The brass inserts are perfect, flush fit with nice sharp threads. My pistol grip screw and buffer tube threaded in with no problems or hang ups.
For 45 bucks its worth it to try a polymer lower, and with this quality its really worth every penny.

This is the first lower I've purchased and ordered on wed. and received at ffl on Mon. I have another poly lower with no issues but the brass on these lowers are great. first lower I assembled and no issues had it completed and rifle back together in an hour. I highly recommend Tnarms and I am already referring people to them. I cant wait to see other products to come out
