Default Should I sell new ar15 to fund upgrade?!

About a month ago I built an ar15 and I love it, but recently my buddy let shoot his 14.5" ar and I love it more. So the question is, should I sell my ar in order to afford the parts (being I'm a college student) to build a pinned 14.5" upper and seekins lower? It will all be top of line parts. Or I could sell the ak (safe queen)

IDK it's a tough call. I built my first AR also and would really not want to sell it. You could just build a pinned 14.5" upper (16" OAL) to use with your current lower and start saving money for a Seekins lower to finish the 14.5" you really want later.

Sounds like a great project. And by his rifle being a 14.5in Barrel it is an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) as you probably know and requires a Federal Stamp and registered as an SBR. So this is also a consideration. Once Registered as an SBR theoretically always an SBR. When sold or traded in the future it must be transferred through a Class III Dealer after that. You can have a 14 or 14.5" Barrel without the need of the Tax Stamp if the Flash Hider or Muzzle Break is brazed and pinned on the barrel and the overall barrel length is 16 inches.

His is pinned and I've been looking for one recently but I want a noveske kx3 flaming pig and not many places have those. I really don't want the noveske infidel because that's way out of my price range

I really like the brakes that divert the gas forward, I like the looks and. Fucnction of it but not the price. Eventually I want to get a can for it so I have let go of the kx3 for a surefire or yhm quick connect brake

If you look around you can find a KX3,lightly used for $75. Troy also makes a similar lower prices device.

Just be aware that niether does a good job as a brake.


If short is what you are looking for, a pinned and welded KX3 or troy (?) Claymore (iiirc) will alow you to use a 13.7" barrel.
