I currently have 3 Glocks (26, suppressor ready 19, and OD framed suppressor ready 17), a preban M4A1 clone, post ban M16A4 clone and 2 stripped preban lower receivers.

I've always wanted a suppressed Glock, a tricked out MK18MOD1, and SOPMOD Block II. None of these are cheap.

I simply can't afford to set up a trust, Form 1 the stripped recievers, buy a TiRant 9, build the MK18MOD1 clone, and build the SOPMOD Block II clone.

If I decide to keep the current AR15s it'll take me forever to buy the suppressor and build the 2 AR15s that I really want. Once I have the MK18 and SOPMOD Block II I know I'll barely shoot the M4A1 and M16A4 clones.

Should I sell the M16A4 clone to get started then the M4A1 clone to fund the builds once the Form 1's come back?

It seems like the obvious choice but I wanted ARFCOM's opinion.

Yeah sure. If you aren't going to use them and need to free up funds to get what you want, then do it.

I love the "never sell a gun" saying too. However if you really need to so you can get what you want then that is okay in my books.


When you do it though, don't SBR the SOPMOD Block II. Pin a muzzle on a 14.5" barrel instead. This leaves you with an NFA AR and a non-NFA AR which would be useful if you travel to non NFA states. This way you are more versatile.

not exactly answering your question, but I decided a while back that I didnt want
more stuff, I just wanted better stuff. If you dont sell the old stuff, you end up with
a heckuva lot of stuff.
I sell off what i dont want or use, and buy better stuff i will use.

Beyond a certain point,(and its different for everybody) if you have too much stuff,
it owns you instead of the other way around.

just my two cents

I have no problem with it; I've done the same several times.
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 8:07:23 AM EST
Yeah go ahead and sell. I'm ok with it
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 8:09:42 AM EST
I've done it before, and I'd do it again.

I don't see the problem as long as you roll the money back into gun stuff. I always sell stuff if I don't use it for awhile. I get better stuff.

Yes, do it.
I always like to trade up and refine what I have.

This.
I like the use of the word "refine".

I have always been a huge proponent of selling what I dont use to buy what I will use. I may take a hit here or there to do so. But Im much happier shooting the gun I know I wanted all along than settling.

I have sold guns that never get fired, I also know which guns will never leave my collection. I am currently looking to sell a couple other guns in my collection that I never get out to fund SBR and suppressors.

I like the way you put it, that makes sense.

Thats kind of what I've been thinking. If I have the MK18 I'll barely shoot the M4A1 and if I put a Trijicon on the SOPMOD Block II I'll barely shoot the M16A4 clone.



Time to price out the parts on my A4 clone and get to selling it.

If you sell a gun, you buy a gun....thats the standing rule for me. It's never let me down..

Out with the old, in with the new...rinse and repeat.

I must add...never sell a gun unless replacing it with something better.

I'm more than a little surprised, usually GD regurgitates the same old nonsense about never selling a gun.

If you have stuff you don't shoot it makes no sense to keep it instead of trading it in on something to shoot unless it is exceptionally rare or has a sentimental attachment.

this idea about never selling guns makes no sense


the only guns you should definitely not sell are the basic food group type guns

like if you only have one 12 ga shotgun, a remington 870, if you sell it, you know you're going to buy one a few years from now, because a 12 ga shotgun is a basic food group

so yeah, it's dumb to sell a gun that'll you'll buy again in a few years


aside from that, have at it, buy and sell

its fun

Sell a gun you already own? Been buying a gun once a month on average since I turned 21 (now 41) and have only sold one, and that was a to a friend who really liked it (we duck hunted together).
