    I'm in the process of getting rid of a large portion of my collection that I don't really need. THere was a time when I collected everything I could get.

    Sold 1 Barrett a couple weeks ago and the other one tonight. Also sold a bunch of 50BMG ammo too.[booze]

    I have around 10 AR15s that I am getting ready to part with as well and I will list some of them here if we have any interest. Otherwise I'll sell them local or at AR15.com or elsewhere.

    I have new and used
    Bushmasters, DPMS, Oly, and Stags. Some are combinations of 2 from kits I have built up over the years.

    I am also getting rid of some Springfield Armory 1911s. I know I have 2 NIB US GI models. Repros of USGI and even say that on the grips. I think I have a few extra Glocks in 9 and 45... What else... [troll]

    Oh, I have a SA National Match M1A that has some or all TRW parts, a SOCOM, a Troy M14 SOPMOD, and 3 AKs and some kits. M1 Garand

    Piles and piles of ammo too. .223, .308, x39 and prolly more under a few rocks.

    I'm coming up with my lists now and if there is interest here, I'll post some things. I have more than I can shoot or take care of and need to make some room. I'm going to utility over collection and am keeping some Every Day Carry rifles and handguns for the family.

    Let me know what you are looking for and I just might have it[winkthumb]

    Out of pure curiosity. Why did you get so many of the same rifle?

    I saw some utilitarian usage. At one point it looked like around 16 might possibly come to my place as a retreat if SHTF and all things stopped.

    I bought when I saw deals and stocked for others as well as myself. (more than just firearms) Over the years some of those have moved, gotten more self sufficient themselves or have stocked up on some of their own goods. I am looking at where I think we may be headed in the near future and thinking that if I don't need to outfit a small security force here at my ranch anymore, I might be better suited wth a bit more of a different metal. and a little extra cash during the slide. Still have to pay that electric bill, etc...

    Ultimately I settled on a standard design fr my family and anyone else who might stop by and ran with it. I am keeping 5 of the AR-15s

    Thanks for all the PMs of inquiry so far. I think I have answered them all and I will come up with some lists and prices later.

    Do you have a stripped Armalite AR-10 A4 upper ? It's a long shot but you never know until you ask.

    Details on AR's and ammo (5.56, .308 and x39) please.

    I need some 223 and 308 ammo. Let me know what you've got and price.

    I'm holding off on my 308 and 223 for now. Once I get out of some of these rifles and know what I'm going to keep and not, I'll figure out the ammo.

    I'll let you know
