What should I do for my next AR?

I currently have:

14.5" Carbine w/ Eotech
16" LW Dedicated 22lr
18" Noveske SPR (Almost finished)
A stripped lower ready to be built.

I am thinking of doing the following:

11.5" BCM Upper SBR (5.56)
11.5" Spikes SBR w/ folding stock (22lr)
Something big bore (.458 Socom or .50 Beuwolf)
6.5 or 6.8
Something 5.45 x 39
ETA: Retro build?

Any suggestions or comments? Maybe something I haven't thought of?

A 22lr SBR would be badass... Stop giving me ideas.

You could do a 11.5 5.56 SBR, and get a drop in .22lr kit and have the best of bot worlds.

11.5'' BCM would be awesome!

Damn you guys are killing me.

I may head over to the NFA forum and poke around a little now.

11.5 BCM

A .22 SBR would be a really expensive toy and I would image there are much more beneficial ways to spend that kind of money.

I wouldn't mess with any non-standard caliber unless you reload and only then if you have a specific need\use for that round? Otherwise it too would just be an expensive toy (see above).

The 5.45x45 has some merit as a low cost training tool but ultimately with the choices given, I think I would go with the 11.5" 5.56mm BCM upper

I would build a 5.56 SBR, and then just run a .22 kit in it.

I love my 11.5" Colt. A 11.5" BCM should be no different.

That's awesome!

What's the total overall length with stock compressed? That's almost the exact config I'm looking at except for a longer handguard possibly.

Thanks. According to Colt's website (I don't have my rifle in front of me) OA length is 26.8 with stock collapsed and 30.0 with stock extended all the way.

Or get the new Spike's 16" MidLE upper in 5.45X39 and have it shortened to 14.5"...that would be cool too.

Thanks for the info. I'm almost 100% sure I'm going this route.

This way I also get time to save for the upper while I wait on my stamp.

5.56 SBR for sure..I opted to buy a full factory SBR's just in case I had to sell one down the road for unforeseen reasons..

And there you go screwing up plans.

Who makes an upper like this anyways?
