Over the last several months I have collected parts for a couple different builds. I built an A2 HBAR: it's fun, but too heavy to carry around for too long. I built an MFaux: it was also ok, just not my cup of tea. The MFaux has been dissolved for some kind of recon build. I also have a 723 clone in the works.

I did some calculations today, and if I liquidate my parts stash and my A2 I would have pretty close to enough money for a PredatAR. The PredatAR would fill the role of the recon-esque build and the lightweight 723 at the same time. I would miss the A2 HBAR a little, but I could cry on my PredatAR to console myself. This would knock me down from 2 ARs with 2 builds in progress to just 2 complete ARs (the other is an 18" barreled rifle).


Help me MOHTF! Do I sell it all for a PredatAR?

Thanks for the invite! I'm in the KC area, although I regularly make it down to Springfield. Getting to shoot Kujoe's OBR lite is what started all of this.

I got two Larue stealths one a spr and the other a carbine.

I have thought this myself as I have a bushmaster and have thought about selling it to trade up to a predator.

Thas funny, I have two Bushys, ones brand new,  well about a year old, but I've never even fired it...  Just sits in the safe...  I thought about using it as tradebait too towards an OBR.... or Another Stealth...

I am always for trading up to higher quality equipment. I have from 6 carbines and 1 varmint rig down to an LWRC with some VLtor, LaRue, and Magpul to enhance flavor. SBR'd the lower and now have a 4.5" .22 upper, 22" varmint upper, and am now building an 8-9" 300AAC Blackout upper. One quality registered lower has endless possibilities!

Dumped 2-3 bolt rifles and some parts to get a .308 CMMG....while it's no OBR, I feel I upgraded a good amount!

Sprinkle in some AAC silencers, and the smile is semi-permanent.

i did it.  I sold a RRA (7.62x39- really fun to shoot!) and a DMPS (5.56 - my first ar15 build
) to buy order my PredatAR 5.56.  Quality stuff from what I hear. I can't wait to try her out!   I'm still waiting though, I'm on week seven.  In the mean time, i have a new sgl21 to keep me company.

What will really piss you off is when it finally does ship and gets to your FFL and you get a delay off the 4473.... been there on other items

(Even though it's not a good idea for me to buy right now.)

Get your order in soon...



If any of you saw "Top Shot" on Aug 9th, the wait time on the OBR's are about to go up.  It was featured in the season premier.  Check out this thread... it was pretty bitch.
