Simple. Instead of rebuilding, just build another whole rifle. then you'll have multiple rifles to use when you get bored with one. :-)
My factory 5.56 SBR hasn't rarely had the original upper on it. It has been primarily a 6.8 gun but I swear I can't leave it be. I change barrel length, hand guards, grips, optics way too much. Right now I am on my 7th rebuild of some kind and chomping at the bit for Midway and Rainier to deliver my parts. My current build will be a quick handling rifle for homestead defense and shorter range deer/hog. My last was an 8" barrel and Aimpoint that was too short for comfortable shooting, with a 12" barrel before that, and 16" before that. I am hoping the 11.3" will keep me happy but I am kinda missin my 8" Noveske already and hating I sold it. The only thing that ever stays the same is SSA ammo.Anybody else never satisfied with their builds?

I have started building more and more uppers. I now have a 556, 30 HRT and a 458 SOCOM. I am now also buying parts for a 6.8 12.5".
30HRT, what a 300BO wants to be when it grows up!
There are guys all over the world addicated to endless modding of our guns / trucks / motorcyles / sports cars / campers / quads .... whatever. Mostly we find ourselves on these forums. From one addict to another, may the zen of "it's good enough" fall upon you soon.
I have found my mod list is proprotional to time spent on the damn forums for any given man - hobby. I'm cutting myself off from my truck forum here soon... as soon as I get my suspension lift and new tires installed ahahahaha.
A Four Wheel Drive and a .45 ... and a 6.8 SPC.

I think that is the trouble....looking at other guns on the forums and seeing new products that have came out.
All parts are in and installed. Should be a fun short range deer rifle with 85 TSX or 95 TTSX. Now I am thinking I am going to save up for a 7.5 - 8.5 inch upper for a fun PDW that has decent up close ballistics.Wilson 11.3" 6.8 barrel, Midwest Industries generation 2 mid-length rail and topped with Leupold 1.5-4x scope.
I do the same thing. My wife tells me that the ARs are grown men Legos. I use to change them around, then started building them out of spare parts, then building them out of the really good stuff. I currntly have six 6.8 uppers, three of which are SBRs and a pile of 5.56 uppers.
Yep I'm addicted. Terminal BlackRifle Disease.
