I've had bad luck with DPMS LPKs. Rough triggers, mag catches that were so covered in burrs they wouldn't fit inside the slot without filing, bolt catches so full of holes I had to figure out which one I wanted to put the roll pin through.

My DPMS lpk was flawless and has been great. I will say that the trigger is a bit heavy, but my understanding from others is that is pretty universal with lpks.

Ok just my 2 cents.

I like DPMS but the RRA LPK's are better (IMO) and cheaper.
I would get the Magpul MBus instead of the Larue only because you said you wanted lighter. I have a couple sets and love them.
I would also suggest the Gear Sector sling mount but that is a personal preference.

I've had a couple really rough DPMS LPK's, Set Screw installation and Shorter Grip Screw can do wonders at taking out the slack and smoothing the trigger pull. Cost ??? <$2.00.
I've broken 3 DPMS Hammer Pins too. Sounds like someone got in a big hurry to get Kits out, That's FU.

No problems what so ever with DPMS parts kits.

Got 3 more in the bubble packs waiting to be put into my Mega lowers.......
