saw this thread on m4carbine.net and thought it would be cool to repost it here
lots of pics:
got my first AR stripped lower in 2006 but sat on it for a long time deciding what to get.
added some color:
i then got a rock river arms lower parts kit, magpul MIAD grip and magpul milspec CTR:
awaiting the upper:
december of '07 i ordered my upper; a CMMG 14.5" M4 upper with a troy BUIS for $687 shipped.
pics of the upper when i got it:
i wasn't anticipating getting optics for a while but i stumbled upon a great deal on a TA33 ACOG
after this i went to SHOT 08 in Las Vegas and got to mess around with the then-brand new Troy Industries MRF-DI rail for carbines. needless to say i got on the waiting list as soon as i got home and ordered one when they were put on the market:
since then i've added some minor things like magpul rail covers, KAC VFG, a vickers sling, and a flip front cover for the acog.
here is my rifle in its current configuration:
i love this rifle!
and now it begins all over again:
M16A3 clone w/ detachable carry handle. It has been great so far but I really want a smaller carbine now too.
RRA Entry Tactical... very nice rifle, just never shot it enough and ammo prices tripled in the time I had it.. so I sold it to a friend for about what i paid for it
some post ban rra A2 16"
re barreled after the ban ended.
Don't know after that.
my first AR, was a Charter Arms AR7... i wish i still had it.
run of the mill bushmaster I got from mallninja.jpg
forgot about the "how did you like it" part...it's okay, not my favorite rifle, but a solid performer.
My first was:
yhm flip up rear buis
Bushmaster 14.5 upper with perm attached yhm flash hider
barfcom special fakepoint
Wish I would had never sold it
first ar was preban bushy standard 20" A2. It was ok.
Built up a lower last year
magpul miad basic
magpul enhanced trigger guard
vltor e-mod stock
Sold it when I put a Noveske middy basic on order. Quote was a week and I cancelled it when it still didnt ship after 3 weeks. Sold the complete lower and BCM BCG locally like an idiot.
Fast forward to last month. I bought a BCM middy upper. Getting a MEGA lower in 2 weeks.
My first was a RRA Government model AR. I paid around ~$2300 for it. Lost my job and drained my bank. Ended up selling it to a dude for $850 last year. Biggest mistake ever.
Bushy varminter. It was 'iight. I wasn't really into the run & gun thing back then.
Colt AR-15 Match Target. Wife bought it for me during the bleak years (during the AWB) for my 28th birthday.
Two doublestar lowers on the way for making fun toys and having something for my two boys when they get older.
- Stag 3H Upper
- Doublestar Lower
- Magpul MOE Handguards
- Magpul MIAD Grip
- Magpul CTR Stock
How'd I like it? Dunno, I only shot like 40 rounds out of it. Sold it in hopes of picking up a HK USC. Ended getting back into AR's instead.
New rifle that will be done this coming Tuesday...
- 14.5" Noveske N4 Light Upper
- Kaiser Defense Lower
- Magpul MIAD Grip
- Magpul M93B Stock (UBR arriving on Monday)
Still working on my first one.
RRA Stripped Lower
RRA Stripped Upper
Lilja 20" SS barrel
Just waiting on a handguard to be able to shoot it. Although I should decide on sights if I want to hit anything.
mine is alil bit of an oddball
2-3 months later,bought the m4gery
My first AR was an Armalite m15a4 with the midlength rail from the factory. I like it but I'm about to sell it so I can pick up a Colt 6940.
my first ar has been through different parts
LMT 16" upper
Magpul CTR/MIAD/Trigger guard
Troy MRF-C rail
MI SPLP BUIS
now it has
noveske 14.5 afghan w/ perm blackout fh
dd lite rail 10.0
td stubby vfg
magpul asap and ms2 sling
i need some mbus sights
i like it a lot better than the eotech, but i kinda miss my ta-31f acog
My first was a 20 incher. It was nice, but I ended up selling it to fund another gun.
used to shoot my parent's m16s, never owned an AR myself.
Bought a stripped lower, an LPK and a complete upper from someplace online for cheap. Put it together... hated it. Sold it, got a DPMS slickside bull barrel whatever.... hated it. Shot a few other ARs... hated them.
What the hell.
I want an AR10.
