I need help deciding what I should do. The guns currently in question are:
Savage 11FXP3 in .223
I've been bitten by the AR15 bug and would really like one. The only problem is that I've only got about $600 to play with, unless I sell one or two of the above guns. What I'm looking to buy is an S&W M&P15OR from CDNN for $599 after the S&W rebate. On top of the rifle I would need sights, probably MBUIS for about $100. This would mean that I need to sell the mossberg and/or savage to feel financially comfortable.
My other option is to pick up a S&W M&P15-22 for about $450. If I do this, I wouldn't need to buy anything else. I've already got a .22 that is fun to shoot, but I like the idea of .223 a lot more than .22lr.
The other thing to keep in consideration is ammo cost. I know .22lr is A LOT cheaper than .223, but I'm set up to reload. I don't get to the range as often as I would like so I don't think ammo cost is a huge consideration.
Would I be giving up much accuracy with the AR15 over the Savage? I'm not a fantastic shooter but I do enjoy slapping a gong around at 200-300 yards.
As far as the shotgun goes, it was an impulse buy more than anything else. If I pick up an AR15 then it would be my SHTF gun, rather than my pistol and shotgun. I'd also like to add that shooting the shotgun is "fun", but not exactly economical. It's more of a "look what I can do" kind of fun.
SO, what should I do?
How much do you think I could get for a Mossberg 500 with 6 position adjustable stock, plus the "stock" stock.
How much do you think I could get for a Savage Arms 11FXP3 in excellent condition with less than 100 rounds down range?
