without actually functioning any better than a rack-grade "ABC" gun. Okay, I'll start. Let's begin with a steel lower.

I'd replace the steel lower with the end-all-be-all wonderfully tactical metal we all know and love, "Titanium".

Hand fitted upper to the Steel lower with a Krieger match grade barrel. Hand fittd bolt. KAC free float RAS tube, US optics SN2 with all the options.

Let's add a titanium firing pin and some titanium magazine springs.

Remember, when this thing is complete you will need to have it hand engraved and gold plated. And don't forget about the night vision. Some quality NV should add a couple $K to the price.

You all know this thing is going to end up looking like one of the infamous pimp guns with scrimshaw ivory furniture inlaid with mother of pearl and diamond studded takedowns and detents.

solid gold butstock weight

Let's make it belt-fed.
Link Posted: 1/2/2002 8:41:58 AM EDT
Let's not forget those front handuards with at least seven accessory rails all the way around. We need to make it unfomfortable to hold. And an extendable bipod. 3" to 5', for those standing shots.

Some barrel fluting will run things up a few $.

You will also need a sidearm to compliment the rifle. May I suggest [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid28/pf33cc2b655597ace0aff137be3611ede/fe081134.jpg.orig.jpg[/img]

We need a complicated, expensive muzzle brake. After-market is better so that we can pay for installation, too.
Link Posted: 1/2/2002 8:46:39 AM EDT
Lets think M16 registered with parts changed to M4 config. (10,000) plus tax stamp Think Silencer (2000) Think Acog (800) Think Beta C Mag (550) Think Surefire pistol grip, not the best, but the most expensive, with flashlight (25) Think front quad-rail (150) Anything else?

have it made but colt with the large pin firing control parts
Link Posted: 1/2/2002 8:50:02 AM EDT
Good ideas from all, but what I was envisioning here was assembling an AR-15 from readily available off-the-rack stuff so that it would cost as much as possible w/o being noticably better than any commercial-grade AR. Think "spend as much as possible on solutions looking for problems." With that in mind, we need one of those pneumatic thingies that replaces the buffer and spring.

ok guys, you wanna make this thing cost ineffective? convert it to styer AUG mags.

Hire the best gunmakers to consult on it hire some washington DC attorneys to draw up the paperwork...and then run it through the Govt procurment office....and have Michael Jordon and Tiger Woods endorse it...that should increase the cost significantly!

have it converted to Steyr magazines that have themselves been converted to 5.45mm

I don't know the name of it, but I will call the dealer today anyway, so I will ask him. He basically had what I described sitting in the case.
Link Posted: 1/2/2002 11:01:03 AM EDT
Some kind of gimmick stock is needed. A fake collapsible maybe, or one of the DPMS skeletonized A2's, or one of the Choate hooked ones. Doesn't matter as long as it costs more than a standard A2 and functions no better than an A2.

WOO-HOO!!! Man, if I had that gun with some "Pearl Handle Grips" on it, it would go with that "Fozzy Bear" Fur coat and hat and those "Michael Irvin" Sunglasses! Man, I would be PIMPIN! Big(AllINeedNowIsABigCadillacBrougham!)Dozer6­6

Also make sure the upper is titanium as well, Then don't forget to have somebody mill them both from scratch. Your looking at a few grand easy just to mill the stuff. Not including the price of the material. $$$$$$$$$ we can also have all the furniture constructed out of carbon fiber material
Link Posted: 1/2/2002 11:51:07 AM EDT
Make the upper, lower, buffer tube, and magazines out of machined scandium. At $7,000 a lb. for that metal, it would be a bargain.

When I used to race cars, we referred to exotic pieces as being made of "unobtanium". So named because it's priceless.
