Daniel Defense has a very nice kit.

G&R Tactical makes a very nice kit.

Palmetto State Armory has the least expensive kits.

Stick with those 3 and you can't go wrong.

Haven't had a chance to use a Stag or RRA.

I's pass on DPMS.

I agree with Tikki's evaluation. I have used a couple Stag kits and they're good. ArmaLite is good as well. Del-Ton was pretty creaky as is DPMS but in a pinch should be ok.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
