Clearing out the safe, I noticed I have a Bushmaster barrel on RRA lower and an Armalite barrel on my Bushmaster lower, a DPMS barrel on a Mega lower, a RRA barrel on a OLY lower, you get the picture. No brand loyalty what so ever....all my rifles are mutts. No, it did not happen over night, but hell, didn't think I was that warped.

Anyone esle have a litter of AR mutts?

I have a Sendra lower built with RRA parts attached to a DPMS upper. My other is an all RRA Varminter. CHRIS

I've got a Bushmaster A2 20" HBAR on an Eagle Arms lower built with a RRA lower parts kit and a Colt buttstock. Does that count? [:D]

I always scratch build from parts.

Hmm...never thought much about it. But since you mentioned it I realize I have have only one purebred...a NM Armalite. However, my earlier self built "NM" AR is complete with a bushmaster bolt, carrier, and float tube; DPMS barrel; Olympic upper; Eagle Arms lower; RRA two-stage trigger; with ASA supplied buttstock and lower kit. Don't know what I was thinking, but talk about Heinz 57.

Mine aren't mutts, they are "custom built" to my specifications. [:D][:P]

I've got at least 4 of them around here somewhere. Danny

I like them better when I build them the way I want. Which makes them mutt-guns, but whats in a name anyway?
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 2:48:47 PM EDT
Bushmaster this, Colt that, LMT this. My mutts are still classy. Reminds me of my dogs. Got a lab/who knows what-mix that is smarter than me. Then I got a "pure bread" yellow lab that is dumber than dirt. Pain doesn't even get through to this poor bastard...heart of gold though. It ain't the dog...its the dog's daddy!
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 2:48:49 PM EDT
Most people think that one manufacturer makes the best stuff. There is a pretty good chance that no matter who your favorite is, they made something thats on my rifle. I have all my bases covered.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 4:24:18 PM EDT
I only lower I don't have is from Colt. What do you call a mixed bred horse?
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 12:01:11 PM EDT
Four mutts at my house, too. The oddest bird is a 9mm carbine that doesn't have an ounce of Colt or Oly in it - BM lower, RRA upper, JRW mag block. :-)

Mine's no mutt!! It's a pure bred St Bernoodle!!! [:E] Doc

My rifle is almost as much of a mutt as I am! Let's compare. Me: Norwegian, Swedish, German, English, Irish, Dutch and Cherokee Indian. Rifle: ShoeLess Ventures, RRA, DPMS, Bushmaster, Colt and ARMS. Now all I need is some KAC, Tango Down, Surefire, GG&G and KNS parts. [:)]

How about a 1964 Colt upper on a 1974 Colt lower? A pickleforked mutt on top of a police dawg trade-in lower...

And now you are either married or dating a Scotchish, Spanish, Czech, Japan, Australian, with a touch of Brazilian woman, right? You're more of a mutt than your rifle.

A mutt....oh yea! Started out as a Oly Plinker, then came: RRA lower RRA faux tele stock Model 1 flattop upper Colt M4 handguards Had KKF turn down my 16' HBAR to M4 profile and install a A3 FFH. EOTech Bushmaster CH cut as a BUIS. Kept the Oly bolt, carrier and fire control group. About as mutt as a mutt can be!
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 7:48:51 PM EDT
Mutt has such a negative connotation... I prefer to think of them as a hybrid! [;)] All my AR's are hybrids!

I was worried my unfired preban Bushmaster lower might have non Bushmaster parts so I gutted it and rebuilt the lower all Bushmaster. Then I bought all seperate parts for my upper...all Bushmaster, and assembled it myself. Then I bought Bushmaster Preban Teflon mags for it. I may have a lot of different accessories on my rifle but at heart it is all Bushmaster. Bushmaster...better than a Colt.
