I have been thinking about doing away with two of my AR's in order to build one so i can have more trigger time on one rifle. As it stands i have a 16" barreld ar and a 21" barreled ar. The 16 was meant for use with an aimpont and the 21 was a scoped rifle i was going to make a match tennon mounted iron sight rifle. I have since dropped the idea of making a match (iron sighted) rifle since im moving and wont have access to a longer than 100yd range.
So my plan was to build a 18" upper so i could get more real use out of it and really learn how it shoots trajectory wise etc. I have a 12.5" that ive built and will just keep my aimpoint on that for the most part.
What do yall think about all that? If it were you would you build one rifle like this to replace two?
For those of you with the 18" barrels how do you really like them and what capabilities do you have with them?
As for brands i was looking into waiting for a Noveske or a WOA. Either way i was looking into the midlength port since reliability wise i think thats prefered. If im just wrong feel free to point it out.
If i sold the barrels to recoup some of the ost should i sell the bolts with them or keep them for spares? One barrel is a RRA midlength that i had custom profiled and the other is a WOA varmint barrel.
