Default Grips, stocks, slings, lights, sights, optics, magazines, etc...

Discuss your grips, stocks, slings, optics, lights, sights, magazines, etc.

If you can add it to your AR, tell us what you've used and why you love it or why you hate it.

I like my EoTech XPS and Aimpoint H-1. Just in general I like being able to hold both eyes open. Ofcourse PMags must make the list of gear I love. I prefer my Miad grips over the Ergos. The Magpul grips make safety menipulation easier for me. ATS lo pro chest rig is bare bones and functionally awesome. UBR stocks are comfortable and make a well balanced AR.

I hung a couple of marital aides on one, although, it didn't help with the accuracy.

Are you talking about Viagra or Ear Plugs?

My rifle wears a Troy folding rear sight and a Blue Force Gear VCAS sling. Both are excellent and highly recommended.

I'm currently waiting on the Magpul MOE+ grip, which is going to overmolded with rubber like a Hogue grip, if Magpul ever gets them to market. Been delayed twice on MidwayUSA's website.

I'm currently trying to decide what kind of white light setup I want to run on this rifle. My considerations are running from a simple Streamlight TLR1 or Surefire X300 to an Olight M20 in a Daniel Defense offset light mount.

Lets hear some more from you guys about what you're running on your rifle and why you do or don't like it.

I'm not an AR person, but a buddy just picked one up. He has decided to use a forward grip that is mounted on the magwell, rather than one on the forward handguard thing. Anybody like those; it sounded like a good idea?

I just purchased 2 Olight M20Ss and the are wonderful. The M20S has a little bit higher output and slightly longer battery life. You cant go wrond with an Olight.

I like my Troy flip-ups a lot as well. Magpul flip-ups will get the job done too. Blue Force Double A padded sling is a great choice also. BCMs Gunfighter line of charging handles are very functional.

Good to hear from someone who has the OLIGHT. Personal recommendations speak volumes to me over advertising.

Hoping more people will weigh in with their experiences with accessories.

Anyone here with some Magpul products? BAD lever, MIAD grip, MS2 sling?

What about different optics? ACOG, EOTECH, Aimpoint, Trijicon Reflex?

Rail Covers? Larue Index Clips, ERGO ladders, Magpul XT & XTM covers?

You really need to check out the Tripp Research Super 42 and Super 52 mags.

Outstanding quality, expected from Virgil Tripp, and huge reliable quantity.

Yeah they’re expensive, but they are Tripp's'!

I found a way to up my 458SOCOM count!

I used to use the magwell as a fore grip but have changes to an AFG as far forward as possible. The further out your grip the more stable the rifle seems to be.
