    i went for years without AR's.. then got talked into them for all the wacky calibers... now ive literally got a vault full of them..

    my first thought was SURE! if it wasnt for the EXP 5.56 pistol i could just ditch them all!!!

    then i remembered the 30carbine AR.. damn cant let that go.

    & the TOK AR.... NOPE not that either..

    & the 45acp AR.... NOPE.

    on & on...... so not exactly sure how i could get away from them. but i'd like to. LMAO

    anybody else?
    How much for a tok upper or maybe a x25 barrel for the MK760 I bought last year from the guy at WG?
    Still just want to shoot that spam can up and be done with it. Period.

    im guessing the barrel or upper would cost you more than you want to spend...

    i just traded a TOK AR upper to GMwilly..

    but you could always sell your TOK ammo & have some cash to play with instead.


    or trade it.. how much you got & how much you want for it?

    i might have something that floats your boat..

    A question Sean. Is Gary going to use that upper for personal shooting?
    And maybe a PM might be best at the moment if you don't mind?
    Thanks bud

    When I get to walking from the fall I had i'll go check the can out as far as number of rounds it holds.
    I love the cartridge but I do want to wrap up the retro build by shooting season
    So maybe it's time to just let the ammo go.

    Do not own an AR anymore, just M1, M1A and AK.

    honestly what i dont & never have liked about throwing AR's together is the inconsistency of the parts.

    buy a bag of discons.. they all may work in gun A & not in B... or it could be any combo of in between.

    & they just dont function or take abuse as good as AK's. :-)
    Interesting., I find that AR15 parts are generally universal and mainly drop-in fitment.
    AK parts are not made to the same spec as AR and the commbloc manufacturing deviations on barrels and components in the 1-4 size numbering deviation method is unheard of in the USA. AK inconsistent headspacing, component pin placement, bolt head deviations etc. The main reason that milspec AK parts are serialized to a large degree and US/M16 parts are not.

    The AK does get the nod on overall durability.., all the other AK vs AR stuff aside.

    Yeah, that's been my experience as well. Now back in the day when Nesard was setup at every major gunshow and you had few other choices yeah, you sometimes (most times?) got the stuff that was rescued from the scrap bin. Nowadays even the 'low end" stuff just seems to work.

    Bonus points if you're old enough to remember "Nesard", "Sendra", and Drasen!

    ^^^^ used to be AR parts where drop ins.. & NOW if you buy super high end stuff it usually is OK.

    but the mountains of cheap LPK's & such we started getting in the 2009-2014 range were just all over the place as far as quality..

    there was no control at all. we've had dozens of threads on da boards where people have trouble with an AR.

    it was usually always just a junky discon that wouldnt work in 1 set but would work in another.

    You guys never had this problem?

    or where you just lucky enough to always get good stuff?

    The first AR was SENDRA assembled with used GI parts. It doubled. Once.
