One would probably have to be a nice 16" M4 style shorty.
Would you go for a 20" for the larger? 24" varminter?

How would you configure each one?

I would choose a M4 A3 and a 20" A2. The best of both worlds!
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 11:59:47 AM EST
14.5" M4 - FF, VFG, 2 stage trigger, BUIS, Aimpoint, can
20" SAM-R - H-bar or BULL BBL, FF, 2 stage trigger, BUIS, Nightforce 3.5-15X50 (or other high power optic)

My $0.02

Well....

AR #1:

Here is a Link to It

this rifle will handle 90% of anything i may need a rifle for... from 0-300m... but for those once in a limetime longer range shots.. below

AR #2:

Something along the lines of this

still in research mode.. but something along the longs of a 16-18in vortex... etc etc... SS barrel.... LR optics.... i'll use the same lower as my other rifle... magpul stock is the best stock for an anything AR... i would perfer to have this rifle in 6.8 or 6.5... but i'm not a reloader so until 6.8 acually arrives at my store... i'm content with 77gr 223... if i go 223 i'm going to concentrate the build more as an accurate rifle.. since the power of 223 is < 6.X i'm going to have to make up for it with great accuracy... which means of heavier accurate barrel.... which means it'll take on the form of a more east coast-ish weapon

if 6.8 gets released buy the time i'm ready for this upper... i won't hav to put as much into it to make it a pin point accurate rifle... so it may take on the form of a west coast-ish weapon

First one would definitely be the gun I already have now. It is an M4 style (16 inch barrel w/ screw on A2 flash hider), 6 position collapsible stock, flip-up front and rear sights, and a Trijicon TriPower with throw lever mount. It also has a free floating quad rail handguard and a Tango Down pistol grip.

My other AR rifle would definitely be a 24" stainless varminter rifle with FF handguards, Harris bipod, and a 6-24X scope. This would be my "reach-out-and-touch-someone" rifle.

There is also a little Ms. Wedge. I would go ahead and let her keep her AR as well even though we are only allowed two in the question.

Short of nfa registration I would build

1. A dissipator in 5.56 with A1 furniture
2. A carry handle A3 with a govt profile 6.8 stainless steel barrel and green furniture

All in standard/post sunset configuration.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:19:32 PM EST
My two are 16" M4gery A2 and 16" HBAR flatop with Eotech.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:23:54 PM EST
One with batteries, one without.


Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:27:15 PM EST
My current build is a 24" Krieger, full float tube, Megga upper and lower, A 2 Stock, 10x40 x50 scope.

next one will be a M4gery open sights, collapsible buttt stock, 14" barrel toter gun.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:43:34 PM EST
Well lets see the first AR would have to be completely removed of all civilization, razorwired and baricaded for my personal use.
The other AR would be left as is...id say..I mean what else would you do with an EXTRA Arkansas??hinking.gif
Heavy
#2) 16" 9mm Custom Ameetec A3 with the VM HY-TECH mag adapter and Aimpoint CompM2
hats....Come on i only had a choice of 2!
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:45:34 PM EST
1. Closest possible to M4 for civy.

2. Same, but with 1:9 barrell
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 1:51:39 PM EST

I guess the implication here is that there's so many cool ways to make an AR, you can't just have one.

As for me, I'd have to pick:

My big fat heavy AR-10(T) in .308, 24-in barrel, w/ harris bipod, SWS quad rail FF tube, Leupold LR/T scope, and other misc mods

The mostly Bushmaster post-post-ban flattop 14.5-in M4gery that I'm still in the process of procuring and putting together, with an Eotech, GGG BUIS, and welded on Gemtech flash suppressor to make it 16" legal, and the M4-96D sound suppressor that will eventually be on it.

My 20" Bushy is being converted into an SPR: Leupold VariX-III 4.5x14x40mm in an Armalite one-piece mount with a JP Enterprises FCG, ACE stock, bull barrel turned down under the hand guards w/a Harris bipod on the way.

Soon to arrive is a Colt LE6920, which will have an ACOG TA31 mounted to the removable CH.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 4:51:21 PM EST
Sooner or later Lumpy will be along and he'll post the pic of the most sensible two-gun collection of anyone on this site.

I might opt for an SPR/SAMish upper for the lower that's on my current M4 project.


Only thing I'd add is that everyone needs a cheap-ass throw-away AR to keep in the truck/car. The one I'm putting together is going to be very interesting, and unlike anyone else's I've ever seen.

Hmmm... two of the following:

16" medium contour 1/7 chrome-lined 4150 barrel (mid-length gas system)
good quality flattop upper w/Colt bolt carrier group
good quality lower with stock trigger control group and KAC FCG pins
Mid-length URX II w/ textured Magpul coyote panels
Sierra Precision grip (maybe Magpul MIAD when it comes out)
Magpul M93A (coyote)
PRI Gasbuster
Troy folding front and rear (first carbine) Troy folding front w/ KAC 600m (second)
KAC QD Comp
Surefire 952 w/ clickie tailcap, thumbscrew
CQB coyote MOUT sling (first carbine) Turner 1907 brown sling with KAC QD sling swivels (second)

1x KAC SOPMOD II suppressor
1x Aimpoint M2 in Larue mount
1x TA11 ACOG in Larue mount
1x Harris bipod
1x TangoDown vert grip
1x AN/PVS-14
1x PEQ-2

That should about do it... in the meantime I'll have to get by with this old dinosaur

That's the problem with you, BR, you do everything half-assed.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 6:01:04 PM EST
I would have a set up like one of the m4 shown here probably with an aimpoint. Number 2 would have to be a little larger round for some long range effectiveness like a 20" 308 or maybe a 16'' or 18'' 6.8 with a leupold mark 4 and bipod.

I already have one. It is a newly "Pre-Clintonized" 20" Bushy.

My next is already in the funding process. It will be a CMMG MOD4.

I want to obtain the base weapons, then I will decide on the options.

First off I think this is a very good thread, made me think a little too hard about what I would need instead of want in only two rifles.

1-14.5" M4, LMT BUIS, Aimpoint, somesort of freefloat handguards. (I already have this one)

2- 18" SPR type rifle
