Gahhhhh stay away from the dpms lpk. Ive had several dpms parts breakage on their lpk bolt catch and disconector. Get the rra lpk. Great choice on the lower. The rra lowers are pretty damn good. My current build im using an rra lower

JonM, I read some things. I'll spend the extra and get the RRA lpk with the same stock and buffer/ stock set. It's only about $30 more that way.

Sweet.

Now you can get the Magpul stock seperately. I really liked the look and feel of the CTR an went with that.

Keep on trucking. Won't be long an you'll be putting it all together. Look forward to seeing your finished product!
