I've got a BM A2 upper and stripped lower serving as backup/spares to my flatop with Aimpoint. I don't intend to build it up and shoot it. I was thinking maybe I should sell it for another flatop. Or is there a reason I should keep the A2? Comments/suggestions welcome

Since nobody else did...

If it's TRUELY a "backup", then sell it and buy another flat-top.

Otherwise, if you ever needed it, you couldn't use any of your optics or BUIS on it. I look at a backup part as something to replace the original if something bad happened to it. I'd want that to be as close to the original as possible.

Now for a backup RIFLE, that's a different story. Unless you're willing to buy another Aimpoint, BUIS, etc... then the A2 would be more economical.

A2 is bulletproof. I would keep it around.

Good suggestions. Keeping it sounds like the best thing to do. Economical as well.
