So I've built up a nice, new PSA lower with MOE furniture, and I can't decide what to do. I have two carbines and a long-range setup already, and two very nice bolt guns. I ask you: what say the hive?

Ah, you can never have too many ARs. I vote for turning it into an SBR.

I'd build it. Might as well. You have it pretty well started.

I vote 10/22. Those are so much fun, especially with a good scope on it.

I would vote to finish the AR. There are so many possibilities and configurations. Of the 3 you already have, does one have a red dot, scope, or ACOG? Do you have a 14.5", 16", 18", or 20" barrel'd upper? How about a SBR? With and without rails? Black, FDE, OD, or FG?

Buy a PSA upper to go with your lower. I was very skeptical of PSA till I rolled the dice and got one of their 20" FN barreled uppers. Its one damn fine rifle. One of the most enjoyable firearm purchases I've made. Flawless. Can't wait to try more.

$1050ish for a DD MK18 upper

I understand that you don’t think you need another rifle, but don’t sell that lower. If anything, place it in the back of your safe and forget about it. If you have some extra cash then I would suggest you build/buy an upper in a configuration that you don’t already have. There are so many possibilities. Good luck!

They are, but you have to dump a lot of money in them to get them accurate enough. You can buy a bolt action that will out shoot a 10/22 for less even with mods to the 10/22.

SBR or build another AR variant that you don't have. No sense in selling the lower.

My current AR build is a long range ish tactical with a 18" SS 1/7" rifle length gas WOA barrel and I love it. super soft shooting and its great out to 400. Has a larue 13" rail and a 18" leupy. seems like you have long range covered though. What about a SBR or a Dizzy?

6.5 grendal or 6.8

This right here with the new Magpul Moe K grip would be AWESOME.

what about doing a grendal as posted above or a 9mm AR?

SBR might be a possibility...how much is the tax stamp? What kind of muzzle velocity can you get out of them?

Another possibility might be building up a 300 whisper upper or some such with the intent of getting a can someday.

Why not a dedicated .22lr upper, closely resembling your fighting carbine?
