I put on the Magpul ASAP and use a Magpul MS3 single point sling. The great thing about the MS3 is you can quickly convert it to a two point configuration. Some people don't like the ASAP because of supposed metal on metal noise, but it works great for me.

I just recently got the BCM Gunfighter Mod3 charging handle. Not as much as the Raptor, and it isn't ambi, but like it. I was originally going to go with the Raptor, but decided to try the BCM. I like it. You can't go wrong with the Raptor though.

I have said this before and will say it again (and again), the accessory you NEED is AMMO!!!! Any brass cased US made ammo will work. No accessory will enhance your rifle like ammo. A case of ammo down range will give you a good idea of the shortcomings of your rifle.

Adding doo-dads to a new rifle is like buying a new car, changing out the rims and stereo, adding a turbo charger, nitrous, ground effects, window tint, seats, etc before you even have 200 miles on the odometer.

Sling? There are many very good options including Tapco and Blueforcegear

I appreciate the feedback. My approach seems to be get what makes the rifle operate more efficient. I have seen some very funny videos of crazy "tactical" rifles. I hope I never do that. So far I've spent $150 on items that make my rifle function easier in my opinion.

Thanks for the ammo feedback. I usually try to buy my limit anytime I can.
