Can we make this a modular firearms thread! Firearms that can be quickly and easily changed in configuration to serve a different purpose. I have yet to see a picture thread dedicated to this subject and I love seeing setups like this. I don't care what firearm it is, if you have a modular/adaptable platform with a collection of parts, share it here! Feel free to share details of your setup. Thanks guys and enjoy the thread!


Below is my Bushmaster ACR.

You're aware the AR-15 is the most modular firearms platform in the world?

That depends on your interpretation of "Modular". In the context of this thread, modular doesn't mean "it has the most aftermarket accessories". Modular means it can be quickly and easily adapted with little to no tools. Considering the base AR platform needs a vice and tools for most jobs, it is not exactly modular in this context. With that said, there's nothing in the title of this thread that said "No AR's" or "AR's aren't modular". So if you have the desire to share your AR feel free.

Edit: I updated the original post for clarity on "Modular".

No. The D&H and ASC seem to work fine, although having mags I could share between my Grendel and X39 would be nice.

While I love the AR-15 and own many myself, that was not the intended meaning of "modular" with this thread. You could definitely argue the AR is modular. It has more parts availability than any other gun in existence. With that said this isn't about parts availability, this is about a weapons ability to quickly and easily swap parts. Other than upper and lower swaps nothing else on the AR is readily adaptable without the use of tools and in some cases a vice.

We all love and respect the AR or we wouldn't be on AR-15.com right now. Unfortunately when compared to the firearms shown above, the AR is the least modular of this thread.

Given I can swap to multiple calibers and stocks w/o tools, how is the AR any less modular?  If you want a quick change bbl thread, say so and folks can post up their MGI uppers.

How quickly can you swap trigger and safety selectors? How quickly can you switch from a carbine length stock to a rifle length? And then to a PDW? How quickly can you swap to a different free float handguard without changing uppers? And can you do all those things with no tools?

You get my point. I respect the AR in its own degree. This thread wasn't created to bash AR's. We all love AR's. This thread was created to highlight those non-AR platforms that place on emphasis on modularity. Those platforms that can quickly swap parts without needed multiple serialized lowers to do so. Or without needing aftermarket QD barrel systems. I'm not hating on your AR man. It has a legacy of its own. With that said it's not on the same level of modularity straight from the factory and even with upgrades it struggles to compete in modularity with these modern platforms.

Triggers, if using chassis triggers, just pop two pins, pull out the trigger.  The standard M4 stock adjusts from carbine length to rifle length - or I can have another $50 (pre-Biden price) lower set up w/ a PDW buffer & stock, and swap that out in, oh, 5 seconds.  I don't swap handguards btwn uppers - I just swap uppers.

Pick your favorite platform, apparently the ACR.  Add up what you've got in it, @ pre-panic prices.  Then add up what you'd need to get the same functionality in an AR - multiple lowers, multiple uppers, again, @ pre-panic prices.  Other than having multiple SNs for the same capability, the AR is not only modular, but less expensive - which is why the ACR isn't currently in production.

I changed the title for you in case you were confused. This is a picture thread, not a debate thread. If you'd like an AR15 picture thread I can promise you there are plenty within this forum. I appreciate your understanding. Thanks.

Shrug - no skin off my back.  I just grabbed what I had lying around the bedroom @ that moment.

This is the issue I have w/ OP's so-called modular firearms:

I like it. It's a good shooter. Not as good as my Virtus, but good

I ordered a Robinson Armament XCR-L 5.56, 11" barrel back in October and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival... I will probably get x39 conversion for it.


Link Posted: 2/9/2021 10:21:28 PM EST
After looking at the bren thread and shooting the scar 17 I'm getting the itch for something in 556 different from my AR. I love the AR but it is more of a tool and I need something different.

I've never had to re-zero my XCR after removing the barrel. Fantastic fit.

I wish I would have jumped on those folding charging handles when I had the chance. I wrapped thin-gauge aluminum wire around the shank on the charging handle knob to keep the handle from making noise when it pushes against something. That's my only gripe with the rifle, and I wish those L1A1-style handles were a factory option. My solution works fine, though, and I have no need for the forward assist feature.

I had originally designed those for Mountain Man to make before I had my own machinery. Mountain Man said he's going to make some more over on the XCR forum.
