Default POF Lower Parts Kits

Recently purchased a POF GEN II 416 Billet lower w/ FA markings. I have a CMMG LPK but noticed POF LPK'S are in stock online.

Should I just run with the CMMG, or go for the POF? Anyone have any experience with POF LPK'S?

Maybe drop the CMMG for a CMT/RRA?

The CMMG kit should be just fine. I used a Rock River parts kit for mine and it has worked great!

About three months ago when I built my POF Gen III lower I inquired what brand of LPK POF was using in thier full rifle builds. At that time Chris from POF told me they use Bushmaster LPK's in their builds.

I put a RRA LPK w/2 stage trigger in mine.

Both RRA and Bushmaster are better than CMMG/DPMS.

It's your choice, though.

POF website has P-415 LPK's... Will these work on P-416 Lower's? I believe the only diff. is the FA markings, but not sure. LMK.

I may be blind, but I can't find the LPK's on the site.
But you are corect, the markings are the only diff on the P-415 and P-416 Gen II Lowers.

Where do you get the ambi bolt-catch part? It's not a standard LPK part, as far as I know.

The lowers that have the ambi catch include the parts, you just add a normal LPK and you're good to go.

Anyone know where the POF LPKs are on their site? I still cant find them.

keep the CMMG! i have never witnessed a lower parts kit fail except one time when i was in basic training and one of the pins for my trigger slid out and locked up the whole trigger, i got *****ed out for a while over that one even though the damn rifles they give you are worn as hell and suck. If you are building a precision gun then by all means get a 2 stage RRA, if a general/shtf gun then this lpk is the ticket.

When you click on the "POF 415 Lower Parts" it is described as such:

P415LOWERKIT
POF-USA P-415 LOWER PARTS KIT
$60.00

If this isn't a LPK, What's with the trickery?
Or better yet, what did I just order, LOL?

I believe you ordered the ambi bolt release for their lowers.

How about LMT 2 stage trigger compared to RRA?

tv,

I heard that the LMT 2-stage was very close to the RRA trigger, but didn't wear as bad. but for the price ~$150 you could just spend $30 more and get the Geissele SSA 2-stage. here a discussion from AR15.com:

$170 for the Geissele is just for the trigger. Then don't you have to buy the lower parts kit some where between $60 plus? It I assume the total cost would be around $230 for the whole kit. Right???
