I spent hour after hour online going from one place to another trying to figure the whole thing out and get parts for mine. A couple of hours ago my first goodies arrived: a carry handle (with a new rear sight in it that makes it seem like an M16), a front swivel for a sling (the idiots only put a sling attachment on the stock), a sling and a brass catcher. I was shocked that everything fit the way I planned. Studying for hours helped! I still have a bipod grip coming (not one of the $200 ones!), a flash suppressor type thing that I may not use and four more magazines.
I have learned that this stuff can be insanely expensive for some stupid little pieces of plastic. I also almost ordered some low cost magazines that didn't have the helper on the sides to help load them but I eventually found some cheap original ones. Right now I trying to remember where I saw a slide on flash suppressor because I don't want to thread my barrel.
My greatest problem is where I'm going to shoot this thing because I no longer belong to a gun club. There's a nice place at a farm where my whole family went when I was a kid but I don't even know the people. I'm new at all of this. Six years in the Army Reserve was a little different!
