Any recommendations on where to get a LPK without a grip? I want to use a MOE+ grip and I have a couple A2 grips already, so I do not need a kit with a grip.

Anyone?

I haven't seen any LPKs without the grip. The A2 grip is almost a throwaway item. They're not worth much. You can always try selling it in the marketplace.

I figured as much, but I figured someone sold one.

I completely understand. I don't think the grip should come with the LPK. I have 5 A2 grips in my garage.

The A2 grips retail separately for around $5, so that means they probably cost about $0.25 each to produce. I doubt you'll find any LPK's that skip on the A2 grip to drop the cost by $0.25.

G&R tactical has 3 different LPK's that you can select basically whatever you want most of the parts are from LMT.

+1 for G&R... but they've been out of stock for awhile.

Try to build a LPK Brownells' DPMS schematic. No trigger, disconnect, hammer, mag catch button, just spring pins and detent. still come out more then a off the shelf LPK with all the throw away items. Hate to see all the stuff goto waste.

Is there any LPK that is better than another other than having different or custom triggers? Is a DPMS LPK as good as a DD LPK?

Just sell the A2 grips in the marketplace for cheap?

Or take them to the next AR build party in your area? I’m sure someone will over-tighten the grip screw and have to dremel it off...

How about a LPK with the grip you want :D

:threadjacked: Could one use a heat gun or oven to make a A2 grip into something similar to the monster man grip? Just an ideal.

DPMS LPK's are the absolute most inconsistent LPK's on the market. Period. Stay away from them. Sometimes you get an incredible part, sometimes you get an unrecognizable piece of crap.

Basically, their QA is so bad that buying an LPK from them is like playing the lottery. It's a losing game.

Stag has the absolute most consistent LPK I've seen. RRA makes a good one (but I don't like their stepped hammer). DD is good.

Anything but DPMS.

This one from LWRC has performed flawlessly on my build.
Don't know if you'll like the price.
However the enhanced (nickel plated) fire control group seems very smooth.

With 5 A2 grips you could make a nice wind chime..:D

So the DPMS LPK is off the table. What is good in the same general price range?

PSA's LPK is awesome, I've used at least 4 of them within the last year.

A2 grips make nice cabinet pulls for your gun room.

That said, Rock River makes an LPK that excludes the grip, hammer, trigger, disconnector, and springs. It's only $20 less though iirc.

LOL, Someone here once said to make a necklace out of them.

I've found that the A2 grips come in handy sometimes when your selling off an AR and you want to keep, or sell separately, the nicer aftermarket part. Same goes for the corn cob handguards and generic M4 stock.
