Default I Know Nothing About LPKs

So I found a lower I want, and they offer a special LPK on with the purchase of the lower. SO I'm trying to figure out if this LPK is worth the money or if I should go for something different. This is going to be a 6.8 if that affects anything.

Thank you in advance

The standard lpks are the same for all calibers except for 9mm IIRC, I'm no expert, but it looks good to me.

That lower is awesome BTW.

Well it has upgraded parts like the pistol grip and ALG trigger. If you want those things it may be worth it but you could get an LPK or LBK from PSA or others for less money and upgrade parts later if you want.

Nice lower by the way!

Thanks guys! They claim these parts are forged, which I guess makes them stronger than the average LPK? The Grip I will change, but I think I'll keep the trigger, and I love that it comes with a good Ambi-selector switch. it's Badass

So if i was to keep everything but the grip, would this be a decent deal for the LPK?

A standard PSA LPK is $60, add the price of a lower and it comes out to $160-$180. So yeah that's not bad, even without the grip.

Ahh i think you guys are missing the price here. The LPK ALONE is 135 with the special ambi selector and not totally crap but better than normal trigger. Lower is 175 by itself.

Ohhhh....

I looked up the trigger, it's just a standard mil spec trigger with a $2 trigger job done on it.

But the Safety selector runs about $60 so it's not a terrible price I don't think.

The lower itself is a little too expensive in my opinion, but it's just freaking cool.

I think ill get the lpk then. The lower is perfect for me. I love the resident evil games. Hell, my avatar is the T-virus. The nerd/firearm enthusiast onme can not pass this up.

Although it seems all LPKs are the same, they really aren't. I've see too many pictures of broken DPMS bolt catches. Also, my friend broke the tabs off his alloy lower, when he was trying to install a triggerguard with an out of spec DPMS roll pin.

I'd highly recommend spending $10 extra bucks and getting at least a PSA (who sources their parts from FN's suppliers), Daniel Defense or G&R.
