I just spent big bucks on a Geiselle Trigger, MGI Buffer, MIAD grip, and KNS pins...

none of which I NEED but all of which I WANT. I thought about not buying them and getting ammo instead...but I got ammo, and I practice alot. That...and BRD is a powerful addiction. ADCO, GTS, and MGI....thank you and you're welcome!!!

That said, this current build is complete....and I will buy a few more bits & handgun mags to round everything off. After that, thankfully, I'll stock up on ammo and disappear into the sunset forever. I must break away from this place.

My name is Hokie, and I am an addict.

AR15's should have a f'n 12-step detoxification program.

I already have 3 ARs. I ended up getting a bubba'd AR in a trade. After getting rid of a few things, I'll have a complete Bushmaster upper and lower receiver set. My next question was, of course, "What do I want to build".

Not if. Not when, just what.

Addicted.

At times my wife threatens to admit me into a clinic....

my first response is usually "SWEET!!!! 3-Gun??? Advanced Combat Handgun???"

she then usually shakes her head and walks away.

LOL, I know what you mean!

I'm gearing up to start building up another AR but unlike you I can stop anytime I want...

I'm trying to put together the cash for my first build now.

My poor little RRA lower, siting in the safe all by itself. I just can't figure out WHAT I want to build.

You have to want to be cured in order to BE cured.





I'm in the same boat as you. I just bought 2 M16A2 stocks and an M16 stock at the gunshow this weekend. Why? I'm not really sure, but my subconcious is gathering parts for 2 or 3 more builds that I don't know about yet

I just finished one build (dissapator with a full length gas system), started another (A2 NM Rifle), and am planning a 4th (Lightweight).

Does the detox program come with a discount on parts?
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 10:17:29 AM EDT
Yeah it is. I just looked at my CC statement for this month.

Then I realized that I just did an order to GTS and one to Bravo that wasn't even posted yet.

Damn BRD.

I sold $2500 worth of stuff this month so that will help a little.

I too admitt to being an addict. After 3 carbines and 1- 20" build, I had to have a 24" bull barreled build. Good optics are exspensive,the SPR stock, is a must have, Badger Ordance rings, did not think I would spend that much on rings. And of course a rifle length rail from MI, and the list goes on, and on.

I am on #4

First one was an RRA, I got the reciever free as the result of a crappy lower I bought.

Then, back when I thought I was going to get an LRB M14 barrelled reciever, I went and got one of their AR lowers. I got off the M14 but kept the AR...

Manufacturer of crappy lower mentioned above insisted on sending me a replacement so that one's in the safe awaiting build.

In the meantime I got a set of jaw blocks for building my own uppers...

Now I am gearing up to buy an LMT complete lower and I bought an M16A1 upper from CDNN.

It never ends.

I am sorry about the LRB M14, the wait was too long and BRD struck...

Maybe someday...

I started tinkering with ARs a few years back, pretty soon they took over the house. I sold all but one, however I have come across a barrel nut, a set of handguards and a carbine gas tube so I will do one more.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 2:18:05 PM EDT
Luckiny I have done enough swapping of parts, horse trading, and buying/selling to build my gun that I, nor anyone else could tell you how much I actually have into the gun.

I can tell you that I need another $1200 or so to finish it the way I want it.....

LW enhanced b/bc assem.
PRI front sight, nice rear flip up of some sort
New grip...well 2, one for the gun and a matching one for the ARMS VFG.
THen there is the question of optics.

Doubt I'll be replacing the trigger, I polished up the stock one, and I ain't about precision anyhow.

I just started in october with my first built and I have a buttload of $ in my gun, and now with these kB! threads showing up with horrific regularity, I am thinking of building a spare AR. ugh...it truly is a sickness.

The problem is getting pretty bad when guests come to your house and say "What's that smell??" and you reply "Oh that. That's gun oil."

I don't let people come into my house. At any time I seem to have at least 2-3 rifles laying around...
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 3:07:28 PM EDT
Man Hokie you arent kidding!

My 1st build wasnt so bad.

total $689.00 for a M4/stag

But my 2nd build got out of hand.

$105.00 lower
$430.00 upper (16")
$60.00 lpk
$175.00 vltor
$28.00 tango down battle grip
$36.00 rail covers
$275.00 larue rail
$90.00 refinish
$110.00 A.R.M.S. #40-L
$120.00 TROY frt sight
$890.00 TA31-F and Its not even on the rifle since I decided to put it on something else.

but $2319.00

Damn! It got real expensive. I must fight urges to build



Yeah right Ive already ordered the parts for #3 .

I admit I got a real bad case of BRD and there aint no stopping me. I only wish I had started building sooner instead of buying whole rifles.

That happened to me yesterday, I'd spent Sunday afternoon cleaning them after spending Saturday afternoon gettin 'em dirty. The house still smelled on Monday, but in my case it was Hoppe's...anyone else think it makes a nice cologne?
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 4:10:52 PM EDT
I think alcoholism, crack, or heroin would be cheaper than BRD.
