Default best budget ar lpk?

Going to be ordering up a lower parts kit on monday, and was wondering what is the best bargain kit? Looking to spend in the sub $80 range.. Seems like most like DPMS, RRA, Stag and a few other that are in that rang. Any others that are decent in that range or hopefully cheaper?

Wider opening so you can use thick gloves.

Standard


Enhanced

They also tend to fill in the gap between the trigger guard and the grip, since they don't need any room to pivot like the standard ones, since the standard was designed to pop loose and swing down out of the way to use mittens/gloves(but then you don't have a trigger guard and a flopping piece of metal is in the way).

I just installed a palmetto state armory lpk in my JD lower and it seems to be legit. I did have a problem with my front take down pin being tighter than ****. It is just now loosening up to the point where i can push it all the way through with my thumb, but i still need a hammer and punch to get it back out, and this is after hammering it in and out of the second hole many times.

I do like the moe grip and trigger guard i think it looks better than your standard grip and guard imho.

Also i did have a good experience with the staff at palmetto. I called them because i accidentally switched the billing and shipping address, and they actually answered the phone and were very friendly and i got my kit no problem.

I've had great success with both Stag and Doublestar LPKs

I had the same problem with my JD lower. they over do it on the finish so its hard to get the front part in. I did not have this problem with my territorial lower though.

I just put a DPMS LPK into a lower and it went in without a hitch. I wish i would have known about the Palmetto MOE LPK, though. That looks like a great deal.

Already ordered the palmetto kit with moe guard and grip.. I already have those on my lower but color options are nice to have and a extra stippling practice grip is always welcome at that price.

I guess I should have looked a little harder, I paid $55 for my DPMS lpk with standard grip. I really wish I had a better grip and that enhanced trigger guard
