RRA 2 stage trigger. 85% of what I've seen from those who shoot a lot is negative. They report the trigger getting mushy and failing.

Like my 1st sgt. told us, I don't have to eat a **** sandwich to know I won't like how it tastes.

There are a lot of first han reports that high round count RRA 2 stage triggers failing. They start to double or go full auto as they get older. Most speculate not if they are going to go, but when.

Okay I've been browsing lower parts kits online and locally for a few weeks... I always read reviews and make sure when I purchase something it's %100 what I want.

Anyway I have found a spikes tactical enhanced lower parts kit W/ ergo grip, billet trigger guard, baron coated trigger... Basically looks pretty badass for $196 +shipping or a normal spikes tactical LPK for $119+shipping...

The other option would be a PSA LPK which I could spend $100-$200 on or get a cheaper CMMG DPMS or Bushmaster for $70-$80.

This is my first build and plan on keeping it forever! Any input would be awesome!

Hopefully I can order by the end of the day!

I'll only speak on the one I have, which is the PSA LPK, and I am quite happy with it. Trigger is crisp and clean, with no slop in it. I've only got about 1,200 rounds through it so far, but it's not had one single issue and trigger is just as crisp as it was the day I first pulled it.

All of the above is more than you really need to spend. A normal Spike's LPK should never be $119 and I would never spend $70 for a Bushmaster kit. A basic mil-spec LPK will be around $60-$75, give or take a couple dollars. Even an LPK w/o FCG, plus an ALG QMS will be under $100. I can put together a Spike's LPK w/o FCG and an ALG ACT for you for $100.95...just PM or email me.

Those prices seem high. PSA lpks used to sell for $50.

@benluby which PSA LPK do you suggest?

@x-mark where do you find these parts in stock?
I've looked almost everywhere for spikes LPK and can't find them.

@quentin sorry the PSA is $65 for the LPK... I was looking at a kit that includes a stalk and buffer for around $145.

I am tempted to keep this an all spikes lower... But probably doesn't matter.

If you want to keep it all Spikes, nothing wrong with that.

Agree! Thats how i did on my other build. I got the PSA classic LPK and used the ALG combat trigger. Sold the PSA FCG on ebay for $35 as i had no use of it.
