Which LPK


April 22, 2007, 10:18 AM
Okay, I know. I should post this over at ar15.com. But I know there are also some guys here that have done multiple builds of AR's.

I've got three new builds to do, and considering the last build I did was, hmm...like three years ago, I don't know which trigger package to get. The last one I used was a 2-stage trigger pack from Rock River, in a Bushmaster '93 preban. I loved that trigger, however I think I snagged it at a local shop for about $60 back then. I just looked this morning and Eagle wants $180 for that LPK :eek:

Alright, so I want to spend $100 or less per LPK. There is your over/under. So who here has had experience with two or more of what's out there in the current market?

Larry (Correia), I think you probably have a good idea. Bartholomew Roberts? Zak, you out there? Sound off guys, let me know.

I have a bunch of Stag LPK's in stock. If you want 3, I'll sell you them at that price and include the shipping. That'll be hard to beat.

I have used RRA, Stag/CMT, and DPMS. Of these three, the Stag kits were consistently better in terms of finish, fit, and inclusion of a few extra parts (pin detents and springs) that tend to get lost when doing the build. They also have the best (cleanest, most consistent, free of grit, not too heavy but not too light) trigger pull of the kits I've used.

I think I paid sixty four bucks each (with free shipping) for my last four Stag/CMT kits from Denny/GTS. Sounds like RMT has a similar deal....

I always use Stag.

I put together a CMMG and it went together easy as pie. But people here rave about Stag, which ever way you go, replace the trigger. The stock AR trigger is heavy and creepy. If you're on a budget go RRA 2-stage, if you want the best single stage go JP. :)

My FCGs are either JP or basic factory DPMS-- the latter for no other reason than that's what I could get quickest. Haven't had problems with either.

I know this probably was a freak accident or gunstore mishandling, but the LPK I got from RRA was missing a couple important things for me to build my 1st lower. I was missing the selector spring detent and 1 of the other small takedown pin detents. I was able to scrap it together after a couple days of searching around, and now I have enough spare springs and pins to last me years.

I ended up going with Stag standard LPK's. I bought four and just got done building the last two while watching the Redwings game.

Compared to my stock RRA, hmm, could be in my head but I think they will be better. I think there is a smidge more travel, and it feels gritty. But it breaks clean. I think the grittiness will work itself out, or I could just polish this parts a bit. Either way I would say it's dead even or wins by a nose compared to a stock RRA trigger. The DPMS I have used in the past have seemed a little more sloppy compared to these two.

Compared to a match RRA trigger? Na, I don't think it's close. But then again that trigger pack now costs three times what the whole Stag LPK's cost. So it better be good.

I haven't handled a receiver with a JP trigger pack. Zak, those are single stage right? I've heard real good things about them.
Anyway, I wouldn't hasitate to buy another Stag LPK.

I have three Jard single-stage trigger groups, and I'm pretty pleased with them. I also have a first-gen CmC single stage trigger pack that has worked quite well.
