I've used a bunch, and help my friends build theirs with PSA lpks. Done 5+ builds with them. 2 issues

No fault of the lpk, Magpul Miad has an out of spec depth for the spring on the safety selector. Had to use a filler to effective extend the spring to provide enought tention.

One lpk was missing a couple peices. Call up PSA and they send them free, had it in my grubby hands in 4 days.

PSA has state all parts are made in the usa. They've said they use FN's supplier. They're GTG.

I just finished building my dad a PSA lower. I was quite impressed with the quality, and will buy from them in the future. We used an RRA LPK for the 2 stage trigger, but if their LPK is the same quality as the lower I'd have no qualms recommending it.

I was dead set on a PAS until I got an unreal deal on a used Colt. Besure to check them out, they have great prices and I can't find a bad review.

Spike's is a good choice. What are you going to be using the rifle for?

I would like it for whitetail deer hunting but don't wanna have to cut my left arm off so I can stock up on some ammo. And just for target practice so I can get use to the machine.
