80% Polymer Drama and JMT’s New Lower

Get your own James Madison Tactical 80% lower kit for under a hundred bucks. Jig included.

JMT recently updated their product offering by releasing their popular lower in dark earth and OD green. Both colors are a near match to Magpul’s colors and as you can see in the photos, the colors look awesome.
