This is particularly true for those planning to carry their rifles for extended periods, such as during hunts or wilderness excursions.

Tactical shooters favoring shorter barrel lengths and compact optics will appreciate the RT15 Poly complete lower's lightweight design, enabling quicker handling and reduced fatigue during prolonged periods of firearm readiness.

Effortless Upper Receiver Installation

The process of installing an upper receiver on the RT15 Poly complete lower is both quick and straightforward.

To illustrate, let's walk through the steps of installing an ATI .410 Gauge upper receiver assembly on an RT15 Poly Lower:

STEP 1: Locate and Push Out Takedown Pins
Push the takedown pins out - they are retained in the lower receiver and will not come all of the way out.

STEP 2: Align Forward Takedown Lugs & Secure with Takedown Pin
Locate the forward takedown lug on the upper receiver and match it to the forward takedown lugs on the RT15 Poly lower receiver.

Once these lugs are all lined up, push the forward takedown pin through the upper receiver's takedown lugs to secure the front of the upper receiver to the front of the lower receiver.

This will create a hinge setup, allowing you to manipulate parts inside the rifle.

STEP 3: Swap Buffers
We will need to remove and swap the buffer from the RT15 Poly lower to the .410 gauge specific buffer included with the ATI .410 Gauge Upper.

Simply depress the retaining pindown far enough that the buffer's spring pressure pushes the buffer out of the buffer tube.

Remove the RT15 Poly lower's buffer from the spring, replace it with the ATI .410 buffer, and reinsert the buffer and spring as an assembly into the buffer tube in the same orientation in which it was originally seated. Press the buffer all the way back into the buffer tube until it is behind the buffer retaining pin.

STEP 4: Close and Secure
Close the upper receiver to the lower receiver so the rear takedown lugs seat inside of each other, and press the rear takedown pin back through the receiver.
