View Full Version : Pics of my Backup Rifle

Was playing with my camera today and decided to take some pics of my back up AR. It's a model 1 sales kit, Essential arms lower. It's got the heavy barrel, which I'm not too fond of, but Here it is. I figured I needed to take pics anyway since I am selling it.

So is that a 'received parts from my go-to gun as I replaced them with what I really wanted' backup, or an intentional selection of components? And what will you do for a backup now? Is it a matter of now the go-to gun is backup, and I have my new 'what I really want ('til I fiigure out the next thing I really want) AR on order' so it's time to make room in the safe and cool down the funds out-flow? I've been in both situations, and others.

Just curious, as I sometimes look at my current backup and think "how did I ever get this setup?" Nothing out of place or odd on your back-up, just occurred to me to ask.

It became my backup because I built the rifle I really wanted. It's losing its spot in the safe now because I've decided I don't need 2 of the same style gun... My M4gery will remain my main, and my backup with be my standard issue style AR15A2. Yes, As I've upgraded my main, this got those parts.

But now it's time to move on and get a FAL or Cetme.

One of those rifles will have my collection nearly rounded out perfectly (IMO)

from 22s to belt feds...I'll be covered

I like it. The free float front with the heavy barrel looks awesome. I think you are better served by keeping it. Too bad it's a free state rifle which means it's illegal in CA otherwise I would take it off your hands.

I am guessing you "baby" it anyway since you put it in a crib of its own.

It IS a great rifle, I just want to add a european 308 to my collection either FAL or Cetme.....unless of course I found a great deal on a 308 AR .

Nevermind, just answered my own question. Didnt notice your rail fits over the flip up gas block.
