E3 Arms Omega-15 Polymer Lower First Impressions Review

The Omega-15 Poly lower is a new twist on a new idea. It takes ideas like using high strength polymer to lighten the weight, yet maintain much of the durability, it uses an enlarged trigger guard to accommodate for gloves and a flared magwell to aid in loading magazines. There are a lot of other details that went into the making of this interesting new product, so sit back, relax, and let me show you the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Overall, I’d give the lower very high marks for high quality parts and great design. It gets a small ding for the small bits of plastic flashing, but other than that, is an extremely well made lower receiver.

  46. James Patrick Russell

    I think it’s a good looking lower would be cool with FDE fill for the lettering and logo

  66. Eric B Steele

    Savage One is one of my favorite cast members. I appreciate his reviews and great input on the show. If you do not listen to the podcast you should. I know there is a handful of people that are getting with the program because of their awesome giveaway, but if you’re not listening your missing out on the true prize. Thanks for all you do guys and gal.

    • herrin

      Thanks Eric, that is really nice man! We appreciate your support!

  67. Jonathon Burns

    Not big on poly lowers but I kinda like this one

  68. Steven D

    Good stuff going on here.

  69. John Smith

    Even though I carry a polymer handgun, there’s just something about a polymer lower that doesn’t sit right. I’m a big perfectionist and the flashing would be a no-go for me. One question though, can you cerakote these? I would assume if you cut the flashing off and cerakoted it, then you might end up with a really nice and lightweight piece.

    • herrin

      Not sure about the Cerakote. We’d have to ask someone who does it.

  70. Steven Estes

    Love the Show Thanks for all the information.

    • herrin

      Thanks dude, I appreciate it.

    Great seeing professionals checking thiings before we go buy them!

  80. Dale Long

    I like the idea for a bugout situation. My bugout gear has to be limited to what I can carry. This would take some of the load off.

    • herrin

      Couldn’t agree more!

    Thanks for turning the gun podcast world on its head with a fun and hilarious fast-paced whirlwind of a show! Don’t change a thing. And, for the record, Lil’s silky voice and laugh are the icing on the WLS cake! She should do voice work for cartoon chicks that are hot as he11 and still can take care of themselves 🙂

  169. James Morrison

    Great site! Keep the great info coming.
