    Buy piles of ammo and mags, then worry about a bolt gun.
    Thanks. I think this is probably the best option. It will take me a while to build and I can many colt parts to start it such as barrel, stripped upper, bcg. Then I can figure out the lower. Once built I can train with it and when switching to the 6.8 it will be so similar.

I don’t know if I believe that any legislation on them will get passed, but with the way panics go, nothing has to get passed for them to disappear and skyrocket in price for the next several years. It took a long time to get to this point after Sandy Hook.

    I have the 6.8 spc at I built from quality parts, so the psa upper is not my only ar. I might just give the psa upper to a army buddy as he only has a draco ak pistol.

    What does a bolt gun do for you that a quality semi couldn’t also do?

    Accuracy and lightweight for the dollar. Value. Two factory rifle examples:
    * Bergara HMR
    * Tikka CTR

    Both these rifles in 6.5 are under $1k. Both not only shoot sub MOA, they are typically WAY sub MOA, you frequently see people posting group at half MOA on the hide, and less. This is common with these rifles, not just one guy got lucky.

    How many semiautos that weigh 7.5 - 9 lbs (the weight range of those 2 rifles) and cost less than $1K can match that kind of performance?
