    I know I'll be building more.

    Kinda... may build one more and go with a lighter build, but right now I'm having fun making extra short barrel uppers for my SBR. Not really more AR's, just more options of the ones I have I guess. But one 5.56, one 7.62 and the SBR in 300BLK, 5.56 and upcoming .458Socom.

    I've given one away to a family member and have offered free ARs to others if they just take a basic gun safety class. No takers so far. Sad.
    Except for a rabidly "Anti-Constitutionalist" (is that a word?) who in their right freaking mind, would turn down a free AR for the princely sum of taking a basic gun safety class? Man, I never had any deals offered up to me like that.

    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?

    To me, they are tools. I only have one "trophy" planned, but it's a tool, too. I currently own 2 AR's. A MK18 type 300 blackout, and a 16" Daniel Defense. That covers my usage. You do not see a carpenter with 5 hammers that all are used for the same task?

    My trophy is going to be a Hodge Defense MOD2 with a nice 1-6X. Why? Because I can, and I will own it for the same reason some of my friends collect AP, Rolex, Tag,etc. Because I appreciate fine workmanship, and it also "keeps time"

    I'm very interested in the Hodge Defense Mod 2 as well. I think that's equal trophy and tool.

    Once I take the 6 builds that have been floating around in my head and turn them into a tangible reality I think i'll be fairly satisfied.

    1 Finish the 14.5 LW noveske clone sent to bdl and top it with a SRS or T1.
    2 A 11.5 pistol like the one I'm building now, but with a gen 1 Noveske set and a BCM 11.5 ELW CHF
    3 A "me-to" copycat build of Farva's thin blue line SBR build
    4 A "2A" / V7 theme build
    5 A Factory FDE 6920 for a heirloom family rifle
    6 A mega themed SPR build with nice glass

    Then possibly when money allows a few plain jane BCM rifles to just stick in the safe.

    EDIT: And DANG I would like to find a Gen 3 Noveske upper, but think I'll probably just have to buy a complete upper as I've never seen one for sale. Not sure why Noveske isn't selling these??

    I've got some time behind the SRS and have come to love it, this includes my buddies who told me to buy an Aimpoint Micro. I was hesitant on getting it at first due to the reviews I've read, but glad I did. It's become my favorite RDS. Its like running an Aimpoint PRO with a better FOV. If you're ever down in east TN, you can try mine out.

    Never hurts to have a couple of plain jane BCM or Colt's in the safe. Something to pass down to the kids too when they come of age.

    Other than Joe Bob Outfitters and Rainier, I've never seen stripped Gen III uppers for sale. I believe they only got 1 shipment. I'm sure other big Noveske dealers like ROG got some too, but I haven't seen any since last summer.

    I think I've only seen 2 for sale ever and that was on the EE on ARF and by the time I seen them they was already sold. 300-325 is about the going rate on the secondary market correct? I've been looking everywhere for one lately as I really want to send the project to bdl just once..

    And equally rare are those anodized 6920's, little easier to find however. Luckily I already have a 6720 brand new stashed away for Colt when he grows up, though I probably need to pick up another for my daughter while PSA has them for 799$

    EDIT: Almost forgot about build #7! The WEVO build i've been piecing together slowly but surely. Still need to take Jeff @ CMT up on his offer to use their Laser engraver to get the WEVO logo deep engraved.

    Those prices are not much over the $316 MSRP on a stripped Noveske Gen 3 upper.

    I'd pay a *bit* more then I'd guess, just went off past sell prices. Normally I wouldnt spend that much $ or put in so much effort locating but this will be my goto rifle and see tons of rounds. Might as well make it as close to perfect for me as I can

    I have two, just waiting on a couple more parts to finish #3. After that I'll probably stick to building uppers for the most part, unless I decide to throw something together on an AR-10 platform. Too many other firearms I still want to add to the collection on a fairly small income, and I need to start re-acquiring my the knife collection I sold off for gun parts.

    I've built 4 and have 3. I'm not sure how many. I'd like at least two more SBR's, 1 in a 300 blk and another 556 that will be suppressed all the time. I'd like a 308 build and I'd like to rebuild another 6.5 Grendel. Also gotta build some for the future kiddos and start the .22 build for our current little tyke!

    I have these just sitting around

    Not pictured is a gen 2 Noveske lower so I don't see this ending anytime soon! And I'm perfectly ok with that, even if my wallet isn't 😁
