Default Lower Parts Kit and ???

So today I finally received my Spikes Tactical Punisher lower. Now I'm looking for an LPK, obviously. What's the big difference between Daniel Defense, Spikes or say PSA?
Since I have a Spikes lower should I get a Spikes LPK to keep it an all spikes build, would that be more badass?
or does it even matter since DD is better?

One more thing if should I buy a complete parts kit or buy an upgraded trigger and hammer separately for better quality?

Any input would be greatly appreciated

I went with the Rock River LPK for mine. Bobs outfitters had some single stage kits. I like RR.

I'd pay the extra for DD or Stag. No experience with Spikes. PSA is good for the money. Trigger upgrades is a whole nother subject.

In my opinion, PSA's LPK is good and reasonable price. I use them and will getting for more future builds. Most importantly is the fire control group. Get the ALG combat trigger $65 from PSA and the KNS anti rotating pins.

I have personally installed or help install over 7 LPKs from PSA without any problems!

The FCG is hit or miss, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Milspec Triggers aren't the most consistent things in the world.

That's why I was asking if I should buy it piece by piece? Would it better than buying a a complete kit from a company. Or is the DD trigger pretty smooth and LPK reliable!?

The DD is pretty smooth for a milspec trigger. Their LPK is reliable. If you find you don't like milspec you can always buy a custom trigger group later.

If you want to piece something together, G&R Tactical will do that.

I would prefer the DD LPK but have gone w/ PSA as well. I would not take the risk on a RRA 2 stage trigger if I was putting it in an AR that was going to be used w/ any regularity.

@mikeJK what do you mean take the risk with RRA?
I guess I'll go with DD and hopefully like it... I just don't want a clunky or long trigger.
