I believe you are fooling yourself. I believe polymers are being bought and sold due to desperation, unlike normally when it was almost entirely out of either curiosity or cluelessness. I believe no one that is intelligent enough to build and operate an AR15 would ever use them in competitions outside of 'why not, let's see how quickly we can break this POS treating it like a real combat weapon'.
I see this craze as the only reason why polymers still exist outside of jokes and as a way to tell who has a clue and who doesn't when it comes to quality and reliability in the AR platform.
