Default Rebuild Questions

recently bought a DPMS AR im not new to the rifles just got it at a steal and wanted to know if something like this would be worth rebuilding all the internals just use the lower upper and barrel and start a quality AR build?

Maybe upgrade the trigger and shoot it is what I would do.

The fire group is all that comes out easily without punching out roll pins. Chalky triggers suck, swap them out. You putting In a drop in set up or a kit? I prefer a kit than a drop in.

DPMS may not be top shelf, but there not so bad that you have strip everything and throw it away. Make sure the gas key is on tight and staked and enjoy shooting your AR.

There is a lot of brands: Jewlell , Jp, Cmc, Geissele , Timney, almost allot the American Brands have match grade triggers. There single stage or two stage. I guess a lot comes down to preference, shooting style and purpose. I personal just use single stage match grade triggers. I do fine with them. I actually have tried the Mega Arms trigger. I like it a lot. You can adjust the creep and the over travel out of it, it is light and crisp. That is just an opinion,It might not be for everyone.

Not necessary unless there are problems with the receiver and/or FCG.
