[QUnOwlLover;4331962]To me, it just like buying slug barrels or different chokes for shotguns. Different barrels or chokes mean that you don't have to buy a new gun just to go back and forth between slugs and shot.

Same deal with caliber conversions. It costs less to get a new barrel, bolt head (if needed) and magazine than it does a whole new rifle. And even if money isn't an issue, space might be and the conversion parts will take up less room than a rifle in every caliber you want.[/QUOTE]

Also in the US we have to pay transfer fees and all that.
I'm Re barreling a normal AK now to 6.5 Grendel.
Shame I can't just do it quickly.
When I get my screwing barrel set up done it will be a 10 minute change . Just need head space guages and a wrench.

I don't really see a big advantage for a military to have interchangeable barrels other than for repair. You don't see many rearsonaled AKS.

I'm not a huge AR fan but there is something to be said for having a single lower with a good trigger and a pistol, standard and target,varmint upper along with a stock all in one case ready to go.
That's how my AR 10 is going to be.
