    AR's Have You Reached Saturation?

    So how many is too many?

    I think I've reached saturation awhile ago. I've actually started to break down uppers, for parts on other projects, something I never used to do. I guess I'm at the point where I don't want to continuously pay for parts and accessories that I already have a dozen of.

    How many AR's are you comfortable owning?

    I am 'comfortable' owning a bunch but realistically I could see myself owning 3 or 4 at least. And then if you talk about the different calibers and such that is another ball of wax (IE 300 blackout) or maybe some of the other 'potentials' out there.

    I have yet to join the NFA club but when we get into that it adds more.

    Honestly though I can't answer the question because I am only on AR15 #1.

    I never reach saturation for 2 reasons. First is I can't afford it. Second is I usually sell the rifles I don't shoot much.

    I always seem to have a project or three in the works. I think it depends how quickly I want to complete the project. If I really get the itch I'll borrow parts from other rifles.

    I'm up to 6 completed rifles/SBR's right now and I may or may not SBR another lower that's just sitting in the safe. I don't like the idea of having a bunch of uppers and just one lower. Lowers are cheap...

    Trying to finish AR #1. I could see owning several if money was not an issue. 6 or 7?

    The one i'm building now, Pistol, SBR, SBR-300blackout, SPR , AR-10, Super lightweight version? Several for my older children.

    I will be very happy when I finish the first. It's been a fun journey. :-)

    Ahhhh, the first "build" back when this hobby was cheap... relatively speaking.

    I remember what really got me into overdrive.

    Back in 2008 I had a trip planned with a gal to the Bahamas. I prepaid for everything. She then stiffed me, and I had to cancel the trip. I was able to get most of my money back. Used that cash to buy 2 complete Noveske's as my consolation prize.

    Sorry about that. Noveske's sound like very nice consolation prizes. I first heard of them through a Clint Smith article. It was 2008 when I first got interested firearms. Obama was elected and I was afraid I would never get any if I didn't start soon. My father-in-law was a gunsmith and he gave me a wonderful Colt 1911.

    We have 4 right now. Building 2 SBRs and one .308 and I think we will be done. I want to build a nice bolt rifle as well soon.

    When I finish this one, (.277 Wolverine), I'll have 8. That's after having sold a couple a while back. Number 8 is it, my very last project. Then I'm done. No more. Nada. Absolutely last build.

    I'd love to say this, but I know it's not true for me. However, if someone new gets built, something else will be torn down.

    Let's leave bolts out of this one... I'm doing all I can to stay away from that realm of a money pit.
