Heres what ive got currently..    they are all 14.5+perm fixed brake, or 16inch bbls.  After I build another 2-3 of the 14.5 ARs, I plan to move onto a few 20inch builds, then perhaps a middy.

not in the picture––my spare NIB 16inch uppers which I may simply dump..

I know none but the one retro looking AR have optics at the moment, but that will change...I plan to get a few in the future....

So, I am off to a good start on the AR front?  I really only got into it this year.  Ive dabbled a few times in the past 5 years or so, then I sold off what I had....so im starting anew now.


1) DSA lower, DPMS LPK, Stag upper, magpul FDE furniture.  Magpul BUIS.
2) DSA lower, DPMS LPK, DSA upper (14.5), magpul blk furniture.  Magpul BUIS
3) RRA lower, RRA LPK, Stag upper,  Samson QR, Primary Arms light, Magpul BUIS, Tango Down VFG
4) PSA lower, DPMS LPK, Bushmaster upper, Original Colt optic
5) PSA lower, DPMS LPK, Bushmaster upper, MI BUIS
6) CMMG rifle (complete), 14.5 bbl.  Bushmaster detachable carry handle, RRA Hogue grip
7) RRA lower, RRA LPK, magpul moe grip, F93 stock (will have Stag upper w/14.5 bbl, Troy quad rail and Troy BUIS)
8) EA A2 lower (will be used for a 20inch build)




below are example photos of  the last 14.5 builds I plan to do...

Nice.

Looks good, you really need to get the 20" in there.
Link Posted: 4/29/2011 4:21:07 PM EDT
I really think your collection could use an M4 clone.

Damn,

Looks like you need to take some of that money and get you some Glass brother

If it were me I'd sell one or two of them and buy a couple of quality optics. There's no point in having a bunch of mediocre rifles with no optics. Consolidate down to a smaller number of really good setups.

How about a MK12 or some sort of 18" SPR? That would go nice with the collection..

I like numbers 4 and 6.

What will the 20" gun be?
Link Posted: 4/30/2011 6:06:08 AM EDT
Excellent collection. Number 4 reminds me of a Colt GAU5/A that I used to carry.

You know the "BU" in BUIS stands for "Back-Up"?

I agree with what some of the other guys have said Ditch some and get some Quality Optics.  

Def look into a middy DI system (BCM comes to mind) Softer shooting, quicker follow up shots. 2 more inches of RAILestate (if your going to run a rail)

yeah, i want to do a middy..but probably after i add some 20inchers first...

the 20inch rifle plans are...

-plain jane SP1 type clone / retro build
-plain jane M16A2 clone
-M16A3 clone (detach carry handle)
-Magpul'd out 20inch with some sort of variable optic perhaps
Link Posted: 4/30/2011 10:15:37 AM EDT
you need an ACOG bro!

IMO, far too much of the same in that collection. Nice guns, but just clones of one another for the most part...which defeats a big part of why AR's are so much fun.....variation and modular ability. A half dozen M4 profile carbines? To the exclusion of all other possibilities? You got me man.

That's what I thought too. And why no optics? never mind, answered.

Seems to me that 1 & 2 are exactly alike..... pretty much same comment for 5 & 6.
Sell 2, 5, and 6.

Build a precision AR with optics using the A2-stocked lower, and maybe a tricked out middy with the 93-stocked lower.

I thought an A2 was with a carry handle and A3 was detacable carry handle? a real M16A3 is full-auto with detachable handle and an A4 is 3round burst with D/H. But I may be wrong.

Now that I think of it, I'm not sure if a full-auto 20" flattop has been type-classified by the US MIL.

Anyway, I never pass up an opportunity to spread this pic around...

What you are thinking of is the "A3" term in the commercial market referring to the detachable carry handle.

The Military A# numbering system denotes the revision number, such as M1 abrams, M1A1 abrams, M1A2 abrams, ect. and has no actual reference to the carry handle itself.

THE REVISIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS

M16
M16A1 - add CL bbl and chamber, forward assy, 3 prong FH deleted and replaced with birdcage, mag release fenced on lower
M16A2 - complete bbl reprofile, upper revised to "A2" configuration, round FSP deleted and replaced with square, buttstock reprofiled, grip reprofiled, triangle hanguards deleted and replaced with round, teardrop forward assy deleted and replaced with round, birdcage deleted and replaced with "A2" birdcage, AUTO replaced with BURST
M16A3 - same as above except AUTO
M16A4 - upper revised to flattop configuration, detachable carry handle added, round hanguards deleted and replaced with PIC1913 rail system, AUTO replaced with BURST again.

Get rid of all except you favorite.

Build an SPR

Here's my advice:  Do whatever the hell makes you happy.  I've got a couple of rifles that are very similar except for the color, because I couldn't decide between the two colors.  

Not everyone here is expecting or hoping for SHTF.  I've got one designated for that, but 99.9% of my interet in AR's is about rewarding myself for hard work and for scratching my itch.  

Enjoy!

Its always good to have the same set up as your primary rifle..2 is one and one is none as ive been told around here
Link Posted: 5/2/2011 6:02:56 AM EDT
Nice guns, I would think you would get tired of the 14.5" stuff... I would want to switch it up with some 10.5" or 11.5" then maybe a 18 and then 20... but thats just me, but Nice sticks anyways

again, cant in my state..

have to be 16inch overall length, no SBRs permitted.  No suppressors...etc... nothing fun.

Dont think im just sticking to 16inch guns anyhow....again I plan on only ADDING to these, no sense in me selling some simply because they are duplicates or similar...as I will be adding some 20inchers, a middy or SPR type too in time.  I hate selling guns, I have no problems in buying more of them though

I would Skip the 20" and go with a Pair (if you want doubles of everything) of 18" SPR w/ an ACOG on one and a 1x4 on the other.
