Does any manufacture make a better or higher quality parts kit than the others? Daniel Defense, Spikes, etc. Thanks

I bought a few from here and was happy. They seemed better then the DPMS ones I have used in the past. They claim they get the best from others. I don't know but they worked well. They also let you not get some parts if you are planning something different like a Giselle trigger.

I like the Daniel Defense LPKs very much.

Thanks! I should have added Im building on a Rock River lower if it makes a difference in fit.

The only brand I have consistently heard of being low quality is DPMS; I have one but havn't tried it yet.
I have used Stag with no issues and they go for about $5 more (about $66), and since it works I see no point in spending more than that on any brand lower parts kit.
Armalite, Daniel Defense, Rock River, are all good from what I read.

Colt, Armalite, LMT, CMT/Stag, Daniel Defense are the better ones that I have used.

I have also used the DPMS kits in numerous builds and while they have worked you can definitley tell the quality in how the parts are made.
