I like Magpol stocks and I like the idea of locking it so it doesn't wobble around. And I deffinalety have to get some flip up sights. One of my questions is when I change out the but stock. What spring and buffer do I use? Being such a small rifle will the regular spring and buffer work or do I need to replace everything on the but stock?

If you get a UBR, it comes with a special buffer tube. You would just need to order a carbine buffer and spring.

Well went to local LGS and they had a retractable stocks on sale. So I pick this one up for 60 bucks. It came with the buffer spring and tube along with the stock. Its nice, 6 positions on it. I also bought a red dot scope. It wasn't very expensive but what I noticed that its not very bright in full sun. Not sure if it's because its a cheap red dot or if that is common in red dots. Inside the house it will blind you. Was having problems seeing 3rings around the dot until I put on my glasses. Think my stigma had alot to do with that. But at least I can shoot it with my glasses on since I can't with a scope. I'm alot more jazzed about this gun now that I got that ugly but stock off. Now to figure out how to attach a sling on this bad boy.

The UBR is by far the best stock I've used on an ar15.

I would like to get a good sighting system. The one I got is just a cheap one to let me shoot it this weekend. I'm up for suggestion on scope or red dot. I also need to be able to put a sling on it but not sure where to attach it. It has the gas block with rail but that kinda bothers me. Was wondering if there was a slingmount that mounts to the barrel. I think it would have been alot better if they had put a sight instead of just a gas block. They could at least made the gas block the same tallness of the back rail. Searching for a good flip down sights that actually fit the gas block. What do you think I shoild do next?

Gas blocks come in 2 heights, low and high. I have a high on mine and you can see it matches up with the other rail on the upper receiver. You could change your gas block or buy a front sight made for the lower gas block, which they make, so that they align correctly with the rear sight.
