I need to get rid of something to fund something important. I don't want to sell my whole AR but keep the lower so one day I can get another upper one day so they dont make another ban and im up poop creek. It is a bushmaster M4A3 patrolman carbine upper with rear MBUS and fabdefense quad rail with around 550 rounds down the tube of federal XM193 and some odd rail covers it has not been abused.

I paid 750 for the upper with shipping and about 140 for the rail I believe and the mbus was 40 I believe... rail covers 9 bucks a piece.

bummer bro! there's always time to reacquire more "toys." take care of the important stuff and you'll be alright.

Man I sure wish I didn't buy it when stuff was more expensive because 700 bucks flat is almost a 200 dollar loss... ahhh...

you're in the long line of folks who paid too much a while back- only to feel bummed now because prices have fallen back to normal...

Yeah it sucks, well in theory lets say there is some BS ban and I keep my lower will I have trouble buying a upper to go back on it? It is registered as a rifle. I don't see my self buying one any time soon as I am going to be moving soon and will be very short on cash and this vehicle problem has me losing sleep because of stress.

Plan better next time and dont let panic or hype dictate your purchasing decisions. Always remember to put something away for a emergency fund.
Good luck.
