I am building a lower for a friend of mine, and I do not want to use my Daniel Defense parts kit I have for my build. My question is what is the cheapest priced lower parts kit I can get, but the parts kit is not piss poor quality?

CMT and Daniel Defense are the only ones I would buy.

CMT/STAG has very good triggers at the same price as the other LPKs

correct.

Some people will say they have used them with no ill effects, but why try to shave pennies on the most critical part of the weapon?

get Stag or RRA

I have used RRA,CMT and STAG LPKs..all are GTG..as far as DPMS I like the un notched hammers and I can tell you they are identical to Full-auto Burst hammers with out the full-auto hook and are different dimensionaly than production semi notched hammers.A month ago I got hammers from a guy who had real M16 hammers...he was nice enough to grind off the full-auto hammer hook to make it semi auto only and you know what it matched the DPMS hammer dimensions perfect..and that was a Colt M16 hammer before it got modified.

I will say this semi notched hammers are specificaly made the way they are..they aerent military hammers just machined down for semi only use..so I would say DPMS hammers are the real deal modded for semi auto use.You look at the area on a DPMS hammer where the disconector catches..its longer than the width of the hammer and thats how you know it was a burst hammer as 3 round burst FCGs have 2 discinectors so the area has to be longer so the second disconector can catch.Ive been using one of those hammers for 3 years and through around 5k rounds and its fine.

I've been using DPMS kits without much trouble. The roll pins are a pain to get in though.



I've also used RRA, RB Precision, J&T/Doublestar, Delton, and CMMG.

I have a DPMS LPK in one of my lowers and the trigger is much much nicer than my RRA LPK. Plus the safety works correctly, unlike the RRA. The RRA will not move when the bolt is locked back and the safety feels odd. That DPMS lpk has 3000 round through it + lots of dry firing and is over 7 years old,

That being said, I still won't buy another one.

OK so what about Daniel Defense lower parts kit? I have one here, but I wanted to keep that one for my personal build. So is daniel defense lower parts kit good  bad great or average?

I use Stag/CMT, good quality IMO. However I have had to file down burs on the takedown and pivot pins, because they were having trouble fitting into the different receivers I have. I like the standard trigger guard over the MOE, so the DD LPK does nothing more for me than the Stag/CMT kit.

I think the truth is no matter who you buy parts from theres a small pool of parts makers where most all of the swimmers get their parts.I cant wait for the day when parts are made to 1 standard.I dont know why everyone simply doesnt make military grade parts and then machine them for semi-only use wich most dont especially with hammers.
