Collectible?
 
Hey folks, just looking to get some opinions on this lower receiver,

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=118878414

As I stated in my other posts I've got what I wanted for Christmas. I know it is pricey but it seems like a worhty cause. I just thought that this would be a nice trophy/novelty/safe queen collectible. Not sure how I would build it up but I could always sell it later if it doesn't pan out. So what do you all think?

thats is pretty cool i'd shoot it though, would be a great piece to show off on the line

An interesting idea if you have the money to burn. It's not for me - but it certainly would make a nice piece if done properly...

Sweet
 
It's mine. :D No other bids were placed. So now all I have to do is cut down a few money tree's and burn em'. :rolleyes:

Seriously though, I really liked the cause they were promoting. Plus, I can sit on this one for a while and come up with something really unique. I'll have plenty to do with the other 2 AR's I got for Christmas. :)

Well done Sir, well done! Congrats on the "win".

Looking forward to your posts on the project.

Just picked her up, she is awesome (although if she were in red that would be wicked sexy), ;)

:D

So, what to do, what to do? Hmmm ......

I like her. She looks good. She needs some accessories, but she looks good.

What are your intentions with that fine piece of kit Mister? :p

That's a good question Dillinger.

I have no idea. I have been tossing around some concept ideas for this one while I am researching/selecting componenets for my STAG project. So far nothing has stuck. :o

I just caught up on your thread on the OA matched lower/receiver and was nearly heartbroken that you called it off. WTH? :( I really the liked the idea of the 6.5 platfrom with a 5.56 secondary. Plus, that thread has tons of great information in it. Are you sure you don't want to rethink that one, I had thought of maybe piggybacking off your idea? :D

Seriously though, I've got myself the .308 - which is awesome by the way. I'll end up with a 5.56 carbine/tactical set-up with the STAG. On that one I can add a second upper for more precision and longer range use. So I think I'll look at possibly a whole new cartridge and most likely some custom componenets. It looks like it's more research for me. :)

Well brother, I tell you, it wasn't an easy decision, but times being what they are, a 6.5 Grendel just isn't in the cards right now. If BHO hadn't won, or if there wasn't so much noise about ammunition registration, I would still be pursuing it, but right now, I think less is more.

The less calibers I have to reload for, the better I can stock up and wait out the next couple of years.

Besides, I can bang out a good, sub-moa shooter in 5.56/.223 - then perhaps sell off my 17" for a profit, upgrade my CQB model with the profits AND upgrade a couple of components for the reloading bench.

Even so, I will still be here for advice, so you can take what I found out, apply it and build the first 6.5 Grendel of the site. How would THAT be for notoriety?? :D

Where's my range report and some targets on that .308 model? I am most interested in seeing how she shoots!
