Who makes em? or does it really matter.

I want to build the best ar that i can. my last one (which isnt even done) looks like shit.

There really is no "best" LPK. There's a few that make decent LPK's. From there, it's all personal preference.

DPMS makes a very good lpk also at a great price, you cant go wrong.

I'm running DPMS guts they work fine . BUT like everyother thing around here you'll hear people bitching about them .

I like the ArmaLite LPK's

Bought 2 LPK's recently from RB Precision. Good quality, easy assembly (the parts are partially assembled and grouped by Robert and Krista), and you can't beat the price - $48.

RRA is pretty good, but I wouldn't want to pay $60 for them. I got mine for $50 from RB Precision at a gunshow.

I've heard good things about Bushmaster and DPMS LPKs. My Brother's 2 AR's are a Bushy (factory rifle) and a Colt with a DPMS LPK in it. Both seem to work well, but the Bushy has a better felling trigger.

For the money dpms lpk is great, use a drummell with a buffing tool on the part of the hammer and trigger, that make the connection, buff the metal till its very slick , like glass be carefull not to remove much metal , when finished add a dab of gun grease here (this is for any lpk). this makes a very smooth and light trigger pull. It gets rid of the drag and rough feel that they all have

I like the CMT ones.

I would recommend the Stag/ CMT LPK.

My Stag is very identical to my Colt * LPK.

My Stag and Colt looks and feels better than my LMT LPK.


ETA: Note: * Colt have large FCG pins.

My RRA arms LPK had the M with a circle around it on the hammer and trigger.

My J&T LPK had the same markings also. J&T advertise Colt fire control parts.

I saw a std LPK advertised as LMT and had the same markings.

Like many AR parts, every company says their parts are best or parts are made special
for them.

Many parts are the same and sold to whoever.

My DPMS LPK did not have these markings.

Bushy normally have different markings if I remember correctly.

I would use RRA, J&T, DPMS, or Bushy. All are good quality.

out of all the kits i have used i like bushmaster's the most

Another vote for CMT/Stag.

I have used 5 of them so far. When I buy more, they will be CMT/Stags.

How are the triggers in the LPKs?

Are they better than any of the others you've tried, or is my brother's Bushy a fluke?

I've posted this several times now but here it goes again.

I've built lowers for myself and friends using just about every kit out there: DPMS, RRA, Bushmaster, CMT/Stag and even Olympic. I've had wonderful success with all of them. My main carbine was built using a DPMS LPK and has well over 5000 rounds through it to date.

I would use any of the ones listed above without hesitation but the CMT/Stag is my favorite and I've used them for my last three builds now.

Do be careful though when ordering from DPMS. They have a company policy that any orders shipped to a customer MUST HAVE A IN PERSON SIGNATURE!! I will no longer order direct from them, it's just too unreasonable. I was never told and had to drive 35 miles to the UPS depot rushing to get there after work to pick my parts up after the first delivery try. I can see requiring a signature and I can even see a in person signature for a complete upper but for ANYTHING THEY SELL ?

It's one thing to have to sign a piece of paper and wait till' the next day when it get's left at your doorstep but it's another thing to have to do a 70 mile round trip just to pick up a LPK and a T-Shirt!
I think their products are good but I'll order them from Midway, Brownells or any other one of the dozens of other places that do not require me to take a day off of work or drive at $3.20 a gallon just to get some simple parts!

The simple way around that is to order from one of the dealers here on the boards that sells DPMS kits like CMMG or Del-Ton. That way you still get a good kit, support those that support the sight and you don't have to worry about signing for it
Link Posted: 9/5/2005 6:05:07 PM EDT
I just put together a new lower with a CMT kit and by far it was the best kit I have used to date.
