    Ill start by saying I’ve been to PSA multiple times, I have a couple of their lowers, I ran many a round threw PSA rifles, even my gtg started out as a PSA build kit, I was just wanting to hear from y’all on whether there are parts I should think about switching out, and/or if their lower build kit needs help from something else?

    think about switching out the trigger, unless you got an EPT, then just switch out the springs with some JP or Wolff. Other than that, the lower parts are milspec and GTG.

    I have bought even cheaper LPKs and had various parts break (like the buffer retainer on my latest pistol build)

    For a cheap LPK, it's very hard to beat the trigger that comes with the CMMG.

    I have the PSA EPT trigger with JP springs in my rifle and am very satisfied with the results.

    I’ve had Lower parts kits from PSA come with missing parts. Last time i tried to contact them for several days to no avail and just ordered the missing piece from midway

    Just bought another complete PSA 'classic' lower $129 shipped, last night. Got a shipping notice this morning. My money's on no missing parts, milspec and here by Friday.

    I'm running PSA LPK's in several AR's. All have included all the parts, and all have had passable triggers. I've upgraded to CMC 3.5 flat-blade triggers in two guns that get shot from bipods a lot.
