I have less money in the first three shown put together than many people have in one higher end AR. Top two are gone.

This was my first. I no longer have several I built since but I'll always keep this one.

DD242-A71-3370-46-B6-9-FBB-D36-ECCCC4-DAA.jpg

Started this one from a lower a friend gave me. Simple basic mil-spec 16" mid gas 1:8 with a free float and Magpul furniture. Easy 200 yd plinker on steel with open sites and cheapo steel TulAmmo. One point sling is also Magpul. Only two plastic parts.

This one is the most recently assembled. It's got lots of whiz-bang doohickeys that raise the price but I like it.

1:7 20" rifle gas with a scope. I haven't shot it yet and it may be sold. Only two plastic parts. SOLD and gone

Then the O-PAP. Who says it's no fun to drive a Yugo? This one has the crested butt stock and I swapped a wood grip in place of the original plastic so....no plastic on this one. The rubber kick pad is a Zastava feature that helps a little.
All the ARs above sold except the first I built I'll always keep. After the 20" I sold, I build a 7.62X39 pistol... 13-AAFD6-D-56-A4-46-F0-8281-C6636-C7072-B1.jpg

and SOLD it then built another 16" 300BLK... 0-B401-F9-B-F71-E-4373-942-C-DB56-AF61-E473.jpg

Finished it in January 2018 and since I had still not shot it and I bought a 1951 39A, I took it to a gun show this past weekend where it sold 5' inside the door for more than I had in it. I still have the AK too. I'm down to only two "black rifles".

I've built an 300 pistol for my wife and a decent 5.56 rifle for my son. Figured I should finally build one for myself. It's not finished yet - but it's close. I decided to have some fun with it....

Have two Bushmaster XM15-E2S models. This one has a YHM Free Float fore-end, while the other has a Daniel Defense fore-end. This one has an Aimpoint Comp M2 and HAD a Bushnell 3x magnifier as well, but the cheap POS base broke. Don't need it anyway. Iron sights on the other. Both manufactured in 2009 with 1:9 twist. I'm not a big BR guy, but these sure are fun to shoot. Also have a Mossberg 715T .22lr that looks like a BR, but I don't count that one.

ZOINKS!! For some reason, that doggone thing reminds me of a fireman's axe!

Cerakote, I assume?
Yessir. Cerakote - S&W Red paired with Gold.

I have a Larue .223W 16" 1:8" barrel on the way for no good reason.

The lower is an Anderson 80% that I reworked as close as I could to the XM16E1 profile and except for the barrel lower bolt and trigger everything is original Colt including butt stock with no trap door.

I built this one for Hogs---Assembled from discrete components and a Brownell's barrel. Cal is 50 Beowulf and it has a JP Ent adjustable gas block .936 diam barrel. Muzzle brake is from Tromix. PS---When I say Hogs I don't mean the ones on the view.

Do these count? All Pistol-caliber Carbines. PCC"S are my latest fetish, and hopefully not my last. The Alpha Wolf 45 is the creme of the crop so far. :bandit:



Say, if they're Pistol-caliber PISTOLS.......does that make them PCP's?

I finally got around to putting the lower together and trying out the 450 Bushmaster. I loaded some Hornady 250 gr FTX buckets using H110 and they ran slick as it gets. I dropped a Rise Armament trigger in it. I like the way it shoots and handle and recoil seemed a little lighter than the 45/70 Marlin rifle.
