    My LGS has two parts kits in stock. DPMS for 69.99 and Spikes Tactical for 99.99 (not enhanced). Is the Spikes any better than the DPMS? If its better I can justify the extra $30.

    Not worth the money. That's a good price for a lpk right now though. I'd buy them all and put them up on GB.

    So you would go with the DPMS? I was leaning towards the Spikes because it claims it is Mil-spec (or better?) but DPMS makes no such claim. I wanna make sure I put the best parts I can find into my build.

    The dpms kits work fine. You can spend the extra on the spikes if you want. My question is what exactly is a mil-spec hammer spring???
