"Best" LPK?

What would you guys say is the "best" lower parts kit out there right now. I don't need absolute top of the line, but I was less then impressed with my DPMS. I was hoping for somewhat better quality...not much, but just enough to make it noticeable. I don't like how the bolt catch wobbles, or the safety feels kinda funny when using it. Or am I pretty much stuck with that no matter what?

Also curious as to whether you can get a LPK with a better trigger anywhere. I didn't see any on the major retailer sites. Wouldn't mind hearing what everyone's favorite single stage trigger is as well for a service rifle.

Favorite Single Stage is Jard/Jewell for me. I use the 1.5lb trigger in my AR

I've installed Rock River lower parts in all of my carbines and I've never had a problem with any of them. Stag is also supposed to be good to go. I've heard mixed reviews on DPMS but I have no first hand experience with them.

You usually get what you pay for with AR parts.

I've just stuck with the stock triggers in all of my rifles. I'd like to build a precision rig someday and I'll look for a quality aftermarket trigger for it.

Several places including ADCO will sell lower parts kits with an optional Rock River two stage trigger.

What pull weights are good? I'm thinking 3 pounds, but not sure of that's going a little too light. Won't be doing much long range hole punching, lots of competition and use 100 yards and under...

I like to keep all my competition pull weights the same 1.5lb for rifle and handgun.

Best is LMT but hard to get. I have used Stag, RRA and DPMS in recent builds and like Stag the best.
