The best just got better! James Madison Tactical is proud to introduce the new Gen2 AR-15 80% lower receiver. JMT is constantly evolving to deliver the ultimate lower in the industry. The decision to refine the cosmetics to their already rugged JMT composite / polymer lower, while at the same time taking the liberty to beef up existing strengths, truly makes the JMT lower even more substantial. JMT invites you to take a look and compare them to the competition. After doing so, JMT is completely confident you will choose them.
James Madison Tactical has created an 80% polymer lower kit that can be completed with household tools and an incredible included jig to make sure the right cuts and material are removed by the end-user the first time.
An 80% lower can be made from a wide variety of different materials. These materials may be forged 6061-T6 aluminum billet, 7075-T6 aluminum forging, or injection molded composite polymers.
The lower receiver of an AR-15 is essentially the backbone of the weapon everything else is built off of, it is what makes an AR-15 a firearm. An 80% lower receiver is exactly what it says, it is a lower receiver that is 80% complete. By it being 80% complete it is considered a normal part and not a serialized firearm, so it is legal to purchase without the need of going through a background check or a local gun dealer.

POLYMER 80 vs. ALUMINUM
After much research in polymer AR-15 lowers, JMT created its own formula of hybrid polymers and fibers with additional reinforcements in high stress areas to bring you the best AR-15 lower on the market today. All of the JMT polymer 80 lowers are engineered to Mil Spec tolerances and because it is fashioned from extremely durable fiber polymer materials there are no concerns about corrosion as you may find in aluminum AR-15 lowers.

15" M-Lok Handguard
One of the most important parts of an AR-15 is the handguard. Handguards have gone through many changes over the years from the plastic clamshell-style to the free float system. Both systems give the shooter a comfortable grip while protecting their hand from the heat that radiates from the barrel. Both systems have many different designs and features built into them but the freefloat system tends to be more modular. While some of the drop-in handguards offer M-Lok slots and QD mount points, most free float systems offer those same options and usually more available slots. Most handguard options have built-in options for mounting lights, lasers, pop-up sights, etc., and those that don't have them built-in may have M-Lok or Keymod options for mounting accessories.
It is recommended that a freefloat handguard completely covers the gas system so please consider your gas system length when shopping for a handguard. If you wish to buy a pre-designed upper build kit equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 upper build kits page.
