No really, I think its almost done.*

I have owned and sold every type of black rifle out there and this is what I've settled on. I have sold all my 14.5" lightweights, 20" rifles, 16" recces, 14.5" carbines and more because there isn't anything those platforms can do that these can't.

The lower receivers are actually flip flopped right now. Despite submitting both form 1s at the same time, the LMT lower was approved first. Even though I only have one SBR upper I made both SBRs in case I wanted another in the future.

Edit: People have been asking about the specs so...

Remington 700P, barrel cut to 20" and threaded 5/8x24 with a bedded HS Precision stock, Harris swivel bipod and Vortex 6-24x50FFP

SCAR 17H with TA31RCOA4 ACOG (Yes, it is the 5.56 reticle. It hits about 3" low at 300 yards which is good enough for me.) and AAC Blackout FH

BCM 14.5" Midlength upper on a stripped Spikes lower with DD LPK and TA31RCOM4 ACOG.

Noveske Upper with 10.3" Custom built DD barrel with .058" gas port (it will not cycle unsuppressed), Aimpoint T1, PVS14 twist mount, Troy BUIS' and complete LMT lower with UBR stock.


*I am waiting on my AAC 762SD, M42000, and I need a Surefire M300A and a blackout flash hider for the Remington 700.

Technically I already own an AAC pilot, M242000 and 762sd. But I am waiting on the ATF. The first two went pending July 11th and the 762sd is on a form 3 still.

I'd say you are pretty much set. We are never truly done though!

I understand that and I've lived by that mindset for a few years now...but I really think I am, at least as far as buying rifles go.

For one, I have to stop spending so much money. And I'm more of a practical shooter and these rifles do everything anything else can.

This is very true. You would think a couple of goofy caliber revolvers would be enough bit ronin keeps buying them. As I
do with vintage target 22s. Great collection though. I'm thoroughly jealous.

Thanks, that is really nice looking, I don't think I have seen an AR set up like that before.

realistically do you think that you could carve it down to the SBR and the 700P? I really think that the SBRs are good from 0-100 yards and the remington definitely shines beyond that. I have a nice bolt action and I'm thinking about getting an SBR to round it out. Beautiful collection BTW!

Think again. A 10.5" AR15 is easily a 500 yard capable rifle with a good optic. As it sits with the unmagnified Aimpoint T1 I have no trouble hitting steel at 325 yards.

But no, I could not. I sold two AR15s to fund the SCAR 17 and I wouldn't look back.

As a matter of fact, I would rather have the SCAR for long range shooting than the Remington 700. Minute of man at 565 yards is child's play and having 19 extra rounds is extremely beneficial.

It depends on what you want though. Are you using the Rem700 to hunt and the SBR for home defense? Then of course the bolt action would better suit you than a semi-auto. Its alot more personal than "Would you take X over Y"

I must admit that is a collection I would be proud to own. Seems you have all your bases pretty well covered.

Just picked up a SCAR mag, it was only $50. (Yeah, one magazine.)

I'm not really liking that about the platform so far but I thought long and hard about the SCAR over an AR10 platform and I'm still glad I did it.

Nice rifles. That Remington is a beauty, I bet it drives nails. I just cant get into the SCAR's but I know they are a great rifle.

Scott at Liberty Optics has "secret stashes". If you call and ask really really nicely, he will ship it out the same day. I don't know how he does it. Everyone else was waiting months back in July when I bought it and I got mine in 3 days.

I really like the Vortex. Its no S&B or Nightforce, but I put it right next to Leupold for sure. The clarity at 24x is great. The clarity at 6x is mind blowing.
