    I've got two AR's in my stable and thinking about getting rid of one. One is a LMT Defender Standard Patrol. The other is an early Daniel Defense M4. Both are essentially the same - simple M4 carbines.

    Which one would you keep and why?

    Both are great firearms. Honestly I would need a hell of a good reason to sell one, Than just downsizing. Now is not the time to downsize. Just my 2 cents. I am sure u will make the right choice

    I feel that both rifles are up there in machining quality and precision. If I really had to choose I would keep the one that I felt I shot the best. I am picky on how my trigger breaks. Like em clean and heavy ;)

    Tough decision, can't go wrong with keeping either one. Is there a reason you need to downsize?

    Obviously they are both .223/5.56. Why not change one to a different caliber. Lots of simple changes to choose from out there.:D

    Don't use them enough. Could use the money for other things. Just kind of want to thin out the herd some. It's probably been two years since I used one of them last.

    Not really interested in getting into another caliber. If anything, I want to get rid of a few calibers; simplify my life.

    Or, I could just keep them - it's not like they're going anywhere. Or, I could wait until closer to the election - I'm sure there'll be the regular panic/hedge-your-bets buying.

    Wait till panic and see which one sells for more. Either way its a good choice on which to keep.

    I'm confused too - I thought that "one is none and two is one"?

    Downsize?!? In these trying times!

    No such thing.
    Keep both.
    I used to always buy and sell. Sell one to buy another. Not anymore. I only add to the collection now. No more getting rid of anything.

    One is none, two is one, and three is better.
