Default Lower parts kits AR

Anyone have any experience with the Del-Ton or Daniel Defense lower parts kits? Or any other lower kit they have found reliable.

A comment in another thread was made that DelTon LPKs were rough as most will recommend the DD kit.

I like PSA kits, worth the money. Most parts are made in the USA. Forged parts are made by FN's suppliers. (all according to PSA)

And they are inexpensive.

I bought a LPK with no FCG for $30 just for spare parts.

I have experience with both DD and Del-Ton LPKs, the DD was one of the best and the DTI was very rough, as was a friend's DPMS. I'd pay a little more for DD or go with the PSA Agent recommended. I haven't used a PSA yet but keep hearing good things and the price is incredible. I've also heard they use the same supplier as FN for the trigger group.
