@gaseousclay

If you're going to be running a one point while you're doing dry fire, be cognizant of your furniture. I had my rifle on a one point and was doing up drills in the living room. While i was taking a break I walked over to the dinner table, the rifle swung over and the 1913 rail took a chunk out of it.

Noted. For now I really have to prioritize my needs before thinking of accessorizing. First things first, stock up on ammo. Not much point to having a firearm without it, unless I want to use it as a club . I also need a storage case that I can lock until I get a proper safe. Then I’m gonna have to arrange for some safety courses.

I like pelican cases. Plano cases if you’re on a budget

You should get a proper rear sight too. That one that came with the rifle won’t hold zero for shit

I’ll likely get a Pelican. I bought a Pelican pistol case and like the quality

I’m also looking for companies that make excellent hand guards with a heat shield. Still have so much other stuff to buy for this, but I want to try and prioritize my immediate needs first.

Need:
- collapsible buttstock
- hand guard w/heat shield
-  beaver tail grip
- single to dual point sling (will likely buy a Magpul)
- lockable carry case

Want:
- scope (not sure what kind though)
- surefire light

are you gonna be running a rail system or keeping that as is?

would be useful to run a rail guard with front grips and go for single point sling attachment near the buttstock/ lower receiver group area. the single point are much more practical and offer much more mobility if you're carrying other stuff around your shoulders etc..

back in the army, it made so much difference going from double point to a single point sling. no more getting entangled with the rifle sling and the other stuff we're carrying on our back and stuff..
not sure if I’ll run a rail system. I’m still figuring this out watching YouTube vids and getting tons of advice from [mention]DougNg [/mention] Since I’m new to ar’s I don’t want to rush too quickly without more research. This shit’s expensive

You can get a Magpul forend for not that much money and will give better options for grips and flashlight attachments. Mlok sling mounts aren’t expensive either if you decide to go to a two point sling

I forgot to add before: I would prioritize proper iron sights over ammo or else you’re just turning money into noise

The mods and I have taken the difficult decision to lock this thread.

There are loads of more appropriate places to discuss guns etc etc etc - Like a gun forum....

I wil delete this thread in 7 days in case there is content you wish to copy.
