Hello all:
another newbie question: So, all i have to do is field strip my Oly Arms and install another upper to it and it's a different type of gun? long barrle to short (16 inch) barrel? 2 pins? switch, that's it? Can't be that easy... not my luck. i have a post 24 inch bbl and looking for a little light one, but want to keep long bbl for varment hunting.
what am i missing??? i've been reading this board sence about Jan of this year, learned alot.. do's and don'ts...
thanks guys.

Thats it. Its just that simple.

Of course, it is wiser to get a complete upper... so you dont have to swap bolt carrier assemblies between uppers...... but not totally necessary.

Oh thats an easy one. You obviously only have the very beginning stages of black rifle disease. First symptoms are purchase of an EBR (evil black rifle). Later, the early symptoms grow into multiple uppers for your one lower. As the disease progresses, metastasis is evident, and you will need a lower for each upper, because you are tired of swapping, or you want different lower options (triggers, stocks, grips). In the last stages of the disease, full on gear queerness sets in, the are many rifles and spare parts laying all around the house, and there is no cure or possible treatment when you have reached this stage.

I will say a prayer for you and your family. My condolences.

+1

I don't even bother buying an upper to put on one of my existing lowers any more - they inevitably grow a new lower anyway, so I just spend the extra $150 and build one to go with each upper.

The words, "my wife would kill me if..." followed by:

1. she saw this
2. knew how much I really paid for this
3. she knew the safe is full
4. she knew the safe is full again
5....

will become part of your vocabulary. Wait until you start barreling your own uppers. Can somebody
give me a better reason for a four rail floater than because I can or it just looks so COOOL!!
