Good afternoon,

I recently purchased a Bushmaster M4 MOE rifle. This is my first AR buy. While I eventually want to build my own rifle, the bushmaster had the platform and look I wanted. My question is around upgrades. I will mainly be using this for fun. I have a Glock 23 that I carry and use for home protection. I will also be added a berretta a300 shotgun day after Xmas. My focus for my AR is performance and improving accuracy. What are some things I should look at first? Any and all opinions welcomed.

Thanks for teaching a noob!

Great trigger, great optics, and practice practice practice.

Any ammo brands to stay away from or casing? I bought some cheap rounds the other day and they had stainless steal casings which I had not cone across.

Best advice I can think of.

Looks good . I would not add or change much since your gona build a rifle down the road. Maybe just some optics to help with small groups. Personaly I would avoid the lacquered steel ammo but may be just me. Try a couple match grade lables if you want to see how good it will shoot and learn for the future build. That's what I did for my build.

Anyone have a Raptor charging handle? I've read good things about that upgrade, anyone else have feedback on that item?
