After four years of this hobby, I now have some nice rifles. What I also have is a huge box of dicarded and obsolete parts. Is anybody else in the same boat? I do not really want or need to sell the stuff, but it is piling up. We need a big PARTS-O RAMA swap meet. Not that it would solve anything for me....I would just come home with more crap and need a bigger box.
I just took inventory and came up with:
3 A2 grips in assorted black and OD
3 mid length handguards in Coyote, black and OD
1 rifle handguards
2 CQB slings
1 YHM rear BUIS
2 A2 stocks
2 CAR 4 position stocks
1 Bushnell Holosight
2 car stock wrenches
a huge bag of hex wrenches
probably enough small parts to assemble 1.5 lowers
assorted cheap 1" rings
a few strippers
Magpul M93 instructions
3 empty ARMS boxes (they are nice boxes)
a Larue wrench
2 Orlite mags
a can of ALUMAHYDE and a can of Krylon
Also, big thumbs up to the AR-15 dealers that have saddled me with this big box. In the last two years I have purchased with excellent results from:
Orders on the way from Brightflashlights and KKF
STOP THE INSANITY!
Are you interested in parting with the slings for cheap?
Nah....I collect parts as much as I do guns
I did not mean this to be a for sale thread.
I am ordering a new stripped lower.....my four other rifles need company. It will not solve anything, however. I will be short one part and need to order more. I have three of each freaking pin and spring in the kit except the one I need.
I had no plans going into this hobby to be a "put it together/gunsmith" kinda guy. Now I am the troubleshooter of the entire neighborhood. Cops are even asking me to fix their HBARS. What is this world coming to????
On a mountaintop somewhere (probably Arizona) there is a factory that spits out a stupid simple little detent pin. That pin rolls down the mountain and like a freaking snowball becomes a boulder of aluminum and plastic parts that crashes into my credit card.
I just can't find the perfect AR. I recently thought I had it with a CMMG 1/7 16" carbine/Aimpoint ML2/ARMS 40/Ace Socom/CQB MOUT. Then I fucked it all up with an compact ACOG/Larue/Magpul M93/YHM buis. Now everything is out of rotation and on other rifles. Even if I could get them all back together, I have a M910-WH on the way that will just complicate matters further.
are the strippers blondes ? hink
between the ARs and 1911s i have a fair amount of spare and replaced parts filling several boxes
I say we start a Christmas tradition wherein each of us swaps our box of leftover stuff for somebody else's box of leftover stuff. Sort of like exchanging fruitcakes but you never know when you might actually end up with something you need.
i traded all my spare 1911 parts for a new AR-15......... Colt too !!!
How much for the Holosite?
