I'm considering getting out of M14's completely.

There, I've said it.

I like the gun and all, but looking around in the past few years, I've noticed that the prices for USGI parts and mags have gone through the roof. The Armscorp build that I have is made with all GI parts, except for the trigger group and receiver.

Does this make the thing too expensive to shoot? I'm beginning to think that this rifle is going to become a safe queen real fast, as it costs too much for good mags and replacement parts.

What should I do?

You should, spend some time searching for USGI parts and build 1-2 more rifles. Pick up 10-20 CMI mags, SA ammo and enjoy these wonderfully fun guns

Not sure. Ammo prices being what they are, I am considering adding another AR and AK to my collection, although I have read good things about the PTR91's.

I would keep it. It is a nice shooter and as for parts and mags, do you really go through that many parts and mags? I just don't see where this is significant unless you are wanting to just trade it on something else.

Parts wear out but unless there really worn already there's alot of life to that rifle the way it is.
Just the same, if your even thinking about safe queening it because, than you should probably sell it and get a rifle you wouldn't be so worried about enjoying more as it's a shame to make that rifle a wasted safe queen.
Let someone else enjoy it and you enjoy another in it's place.
