Advise needed

I'm not soliciting offers here, but I need to sell one of my ARs. Question is, which one. I have an LMT with Troy MRF-c rail and a Daniel Defense M4V5. I bought the M4V5 because it is setup the way I wanted with the 12" rail over a low profile gasblock and midlength gas system. I haven't put any rounds through it, but based on reputation, believe it should be good to go. The LMT was put together from a complete lower and complete upper with a BCG I already had. It has <1000 rounds through it. It has been flawless. but seems like it gets beat to heck when suppressed (that's why I wanted the midlength). I'm leaning toward selling the LMT, but wanted to get some other intel first.

What do you guys think?

Which one would be harder to replace?
Which one would be worth more if kept?
Which one is the best of the two?

Sounds like you answered your own question. The DD rifle was purchased because you said you bought it because it was set up the way you wanted, keep it and get rid of the other one.

Thats pretty much how i saw it. I just hate getting rid of a rifle that i know works and keeping one based on reputation. At todays ammo prices it will be a long time before i get confidence inspiring rounds downrange.

Agreed if there are not important expenses that need paying.

I have 6 AR type rifles, and a couple of them are exactly the same.

Why do you "need" to sell one of them? The price for ammo will normalize in 6 months to a year. Both rifles are good, it would be a coin toss if you really want to sell one... That said, I prefer the Daniel Defense M4V5.
