    i ordered my PSA stripped lower today. deciding between 2 PSA uppers. would i be okay with a dpms parts kit? or do i need to cough up more money for a RRA or DD?

    its going to be mostly target/ plinking rifle for my wife and i.

    i'll add updates as i go.

    this will be my first build

    There is to much negative talk about DPMS anything. I picked one up localy as I was in a hurry and regret it. The pins walked on me locking up the trigger. A new LPK was installed and the problem stopped.

    For the extra $20 or so I'd go with DD. Why chance having the most critical parts going to the lowest bidder? JMHO.

    What about PSA's lpks. They've stated that they use the same suppliers FN does. I've never had a problem with the 5+ kits I've ordered. They did forget a couple bits on one order but a quick call to their CS and they mailed them to me quickly.

    At $45 they are a steal imo, but I think they bumped their price back up to $50.

    I agree, $45-50 for the PSA LPK is a steal and will have to try one next time. I've had excellent luck with three Daniel Defense and three Stag/CMTs. My first LPK was Del-Ton which was very rough as was a buddy's DPMS. Of the LPKs starting with "D" I'd pay the difference and go with Daniel Defense.

    I just put a PSA LPK in my .22. It's nice.

    For one of my builds I used a PSA lpk w/out fire control, then I stuck a RRA 2 stage trigger in it. PSA parts are excellent.

    DOH! ><




    um, if I'm not mistaken, you just need an upper with no bayonet lug and no flash hider for a NY legal upper right?
