    I did a search and could not find a thread for parts or parts kit reviews. Since I have just started my first build I thought I would start one.

    Just bought a Noveske lower and figured I didn't want to put junk in it, other than the trigger is there much difference in the basic LPK 's? What do you guys have experience with, individual parts that really make a difference, or what is fairy dust.

    Tank,

    Yes there is a difference in lower parts kits. I have seen some this year that I would be ashamed of selling if I was the company. Best advise get them from a reputable manufacturer or parts dealer. You might want to take a look at M&A Parts IL. Who has thousands of AR and other parts. Also Rock River has some great lower parts kits. On kit even has their 2 Stage NM Trigger in it. This is one of the finest triggers I have ever used. You would be impressed to say the least! Just use caution where you get the parts. A lot of junk is presently coming into the states that looks like good parts but are not due to the metallurgical properties of the parts. And they make it look like a great deal regarding price but you get what you pay for if you know what I mean! Quality parts are case hardened for example, minimizing wear and breakage.

    i use rra lpk's. pretty much whatever one of the main AR15 makers or builders use is good. sourcing from stag, psa, rra etc and you should do just fine. i stay away from dpms lpk, ive had breakage issues under light range use with some of their parts in the past

    I think there's info on this in the AR Primer sticky. Anyway, ArmaLite and Stag LPKs are good. Daniel Defense is very good but I haven't seen one for sale in months. I've had excellent results with 3 each of the latter two. I hear great things about LMT, G&R Tactical, Rainier and PSA.

    Had the same issue with my DPMS, I broke the hammer retaining pin after a few courses and good bit of range time. I got the email notification today saying my PSA lower build kit for my SBR will be here on the 2nd, I'll post more when I get it assembled.

    Is there a stock similar to the ACE Socom that doesn't cost $200? I like the style and simplicity, and not too much going on.
