American Tactical Imports (ATI) has announced the release of their Omni Hybrid Lower Receiver for the AR-15. Click here to watch a video showcasing this new lower from ATI.

The Omni Hybrid lower boasts a fiberglass-composite polymer design over a zinc metal insert. As a testament to its strength and durability, it has surpassed all military pressure and weight-bearing testing. It weighs eight ounces, which is 1/2 an ounce lighter than the traditional AR lower receiver.

“The Omni-Hybrid lower has gone through all the pressure and weight-baring testing of a traditional aluminum lower with flawless results,” says Joe Calabro, Director of Marketing for American Tactical. “We feel like this new manufacturing technique will help set the standard for AR lower manufacturing.”

The manufacturer suggested retail price for the lightweight Omni Hybrid Lower Receiver by American Tactical Imports is a cost-effective $49.95. It comes in a Matte Black finish. See below for additional details.
