How many AR's do you have and how many have you owned? I think I have a sickness, I have 5 now but I have had 3 bushmasters, 2 Colts, 2 DPMS, 2 Essential Arms and Rock River Arms and a Olympic, the Hesse does not count as an AR. I think I need a support group...

I was just wondering if there were anymore WACO's like me out there?

See the current thread called AR Obsession. I confessed my "sins" there and was mocked for only purchasing my 3rd AR.

I have one Bushy Preban, one Bushy postban.
And 4 stripped Bushy Lowers that long await a weapons kit.

I have owned two AR's. Sadly, only one at a time.
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 9:03:42 AM EDT
Only one....postban too.
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 9:19:02 AM EDT
my count is now (7).. (5)pre-ban various mfg/configs & (2)post bull bbls + (1) post lower awaiting an upper assy.

I have not, and never would consider parting with any AR I acquire..

I do not consider Our fondness for AR's an addiction or obsession.. it is simply "being a connoisseur of the finer things in life".

Two total, still own both and won't sell them. (I can't legally sell the one I made from a lower receiver forging anyway...it's mine forever or until it's inherited.)

With just two, I've only just begun! I have plans to cut another lower using better machinery, and I am looking for a good used A2 upper (no barrel), and nearly everything else, if the price is right. I make a game out of seeing how cheaply I can put something together for. I estimate my AR built on the homemade receiver cost me under 400 bucks total. I want to beat that.

I thought that too, but have reconsidered now. Why? Well because Class III firearms cost lots of $ and I really have no need for multiple prebans.

Now if someone will go buy my guns.

Sadly, "sniff"-"sniff"-- I only own one, but in the process (don't let my bride read this) of owning another or two. I want a M4gery real bad but don't know which one yet. Never built one but that sounds interesting too. Pre ban, post ban???? Decisions, decisions. There are alot of choices for sure. I don't really know that much about them, but I'm learning so much just by reading the posts on this site. Alot of good info here.

I currently have 2 a Pre ban Bushmaster and an RRA/Colt. I have owned a total of 5. A variety of brands. 1 Colt, 2 Bushmasters, 1 PWA/Colt and 1 RRA/Colt. It's really hard to say which one is the best but my current favorite is the RRA/Colt because it is in the A1 configuration.
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 10:01:51 AM EDT
Too many and they keep breeding in the safe.

Haven't even finished my 80% lower yet either.
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 10:37:39 AM EDT
I own 3 total. I've had a Bushy post ban for a long time. Then all of a sudden I bought a preban SP1 and one week later I bought a preban CAR. I need to stay away from the shop for a while. I was going to Knob Creek to shoot the other day but the river was up and the bridge was under water. Going through withdrawals..........ahhhhhhh!
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 10:56:52 AM EDT
Past: Two standard SP1s, two SP1 CAR15s, one PWA HBAR.

Present: One Bushy postban with V-Match and standard carbine uppers, one Colt AR15A2 M4gery, one SP1.

Three AR180s.

One AR10.

Dat enough?

6, all pre-ban, I did, however work for a ranch for some period of time before we had a mutual agreement that I should never come back that had at least 34 prebans (mine was #34) issued to people who worked for them.

Chairborne, I thought you only owned Colts.

I've owned four total. Two presently. Plan on many more. I'm only 27 so I figure I've got some time.

Chairborne, I thought you only owned Colts.

As a general rule. But damn Colt never made a 180 or a 10! Besides, nuthin' wrong with slumming it now and then!
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 7:47:40 PM EDT
It has occurred to me that there may be a market for doing specially priced pre/postban conversions on barrels when the ban sunsets.

I have (or have access to) all the necessary tools to thread a barrel, install a flash hider, and properly install a new sight base with a bayonet lug.

Working on just barrels or upper receivers doesn't require you to be a licensed gunsmith, either.

Maybe when the time comes I'll make an offer to do these conversions at a price that just makes it worth my while. A few bucks plus the parts.

Right now, I have 5 counting a stripped RRA lower. Through the years, I've had 5 Colt's, two Bushy's, two PWA's, two Oly's, an Essential Arms, two RRA's, two DPMS's, and an Eagle Arms.
I sold a lot of pre-bans before there was a ban. I sure wish I hadn't done that!
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 11:41:12 PM EDT
I have a colt preban Hbar and a bushy M4 14.5 inch carbine with a brake. The colt stays in the safe being a bit to pricy to plunk with , the bushy went out to play again today and just loves to get dirty. I may need to build a colt postban M4 some day, as I love the configuration and like colt products a lot.

What's this about "owned"? That implies no longer have, gone.....my policy about 'firearms', once I get, it stays. Period.

Currently own only one, a Preban Colt CAR-15. Have owned preban Oly CAR-15 and Bushy Shorty AK. My first AR was the Oly, traded it and got the Bushy because I wanted a "serious" AR. But I missed having a collapsable stock so I traded it and now have the Colt.

Well technically none, zero, nada, that's on the books that is. Bad thing about these is once I bought my first one, it must of been part rabbit...she multiplied a few times.

Also I'm not at liberty to tell.

Now Rick I know of at leased two that you have
because you cannot sell or part with the ones you have build.
Link Posted: 3/31/2002 2:28:09 PM EDT
Just one preban colt right now. I plan on buying another preban and building 2 after I finish college. I agree with kaliburz - once I buy a gun it stays. I never plan on selling any of my guns.

As far as on the yellow paper I have none. Now I only built enough to arm my fellow neighbors in case of shtf.
