Default M&p 15 or

Just layed away one and I'm fairly excited but also not very knowledgable about ARs. Any must have upgrades? I was thinking about getting a EOtech when I can come up with the money. Any other suggestions?

I put a Nikon P-223 scope on my MP-15, very happy with it and fairly inexpensive for a quality scope.

Well it's OR so I'd get some flip up sights and zero her in. Otherwise don't buy much now, just magazines and ammo, maybe a good sling.

The point is... don't spend much on upgrades now. Wait until you've got a few hundred rounds downrange! You'll have a much better chance of knowing what you need.

I had a thread a while back http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/hand-guards-favorite-why-93426/

There are too many too choose from, but that thread will give you a ton to look at and decide upon! Depends on what you want to do, money to spend, length of barrel, personal taste, look, etc.

Like Quentin said: Use the gun first before you accessorize. Otherwise you won't know what you like/need

Is this a good quality rifle ? I couldn't find many reviews online, I've had a few cheap bushys and a dpms oracle and I'm hoping this a better made rifle. Very inexperienced with these any insight is appreciate also should I be concerned about changing my BCG and charging handle?

S&W is better than Bushamster, Windham and DPMS. If you really want an OR model it'll be ok. I'd prefer PSA and bet their price is lower.
