So.....how many AR's do YOU own?
« on: January 27, 2015, 10:20:55 PM »
Another forum I'm on, someone asked how many AR's folks owned.  I initially thought "heck, I've only got a couple!"......I went and checked.

Gotta tell ya - I ain't real sure just what's been goin' on in that safe, but be danged if I didn't count SIX of 'em!!  As you know, they can take up a lotta space, so I thought - hmmmm....mebbe I can get shut of 1 or two.....

1 - my Sig that I won.  Nope - it's gotta stick around.
1 - Schoolmarm's Colt lightweight.  Seein' as I happen to enjoy life, IT ain't goin' nowhere....
1 - My home-built AR with SS HBAR - it's set up with a sweet li'l Leupold scope on it an' drives tack.  Yeah - it ain't goin' nowhere....
1 - My most recent, a SWAT w/SS HBAR.  Done set it up w/the suppressor an' NV for hogs and such - it's a keeper.
1 - My "knock-around" AR - homebuilt, got almost nuthin' in it cost wise.......it stays.
1 - My "to be suppressed SBR".  Just gotta get off my duff, get w/E.J. Wainwright an' have him set me up a barrel, and put in the paperwork.

Oh, well.......and afore one of y'all suggest I keep the uppers an' sell off some of the lowers - that ain't gonna happen! O0

So.....what about the rest of ya?  I KNOW I can't be the only one that's accumulated 'em!

An' we ain't gonna talk 'bout the AK's........even though I AM gonna be sellin' one of 'em.  All the rest of 'em are chambered for 5.56 but just the one.

Just the 2.

Tell me about the AK you plan on selling.

I have 3 and wanting a forth. I have a 223 hvy barrel with globe sights for the 200 meter off hand shoot. Another 223 DPMS varmint with scope. And a 6x45 built on a DPMS upper with forward assist, scope, hvy barrel, free float guard and basic guts. The rifle is a true one holer and when it doesn't I'm disappointed. I built it for a varmint rifle. I'm wanting to put together a 300 AAC and intend on shooting the 125 gr pills mostly with the ability to push some subsonic heavy weights out of it for hog hunting. My usual hunting bud has keys to most of the big ranches in Webb County and a quiet rifle will be great on hogs.

After doing some research I think Im gonna buy the RUger Sr762 and convert it to a SR-25 clone.  Cant seem to find any other affordable 762 piston guns.

In that case I see your angle.
