    Hey guys first off lots of good reading here and i appreciate it.

    Now its finally my turn to join the club, let me start with i am in not new to firearms i am a ccw holder and have been through my 1911 phase which was fun but not as fulfilling as i had hoped im 24 and its about time to to step up to big boy guns I've decided i am going to get into the AR stage of my life if you don't mind i was wondering if you guys had some input for me and if i was going in the right direction

    After hours and hours and days and days of research I've decided on the Colt LE6920 as my first AR i want as close to milspec without breaking the bank as possible I've allowed myself the budget to get a trijicon ACOG and some Magpul furniture to make it mine and the reason im not buying the moe models is because i want to do every mod myself and im sure you understand

    Where i am a bit lost is on adding to my stamp collection and finding the right can for an AR any and all input from you guys is appreciated

    Thanks guys

    Welcome, Mike- glad you found your way to us. If you do not get some feedback on a good suppressor for your AR, there is a separate section for Class III and NFA items, but let's see what pops up here first.

    Yhm makes a qd surprrssor that wont break the bank. It works off of the phantom flash hider. Check out shot show and you'll see it. Why go with an acog? For the same money you can get an aimpiont or eotech with a magnifier. There's so many upgrades you can do with ar's. Check out spikes nickel boron bcg, i have one and love it. Very smooth

    it's a Colt ... they are the orignal and folks who have them love em'. haven't heard of a bad review yet.

    As for supressors, we have some members here who have them so hopefully one will be along to help you out.

    congrats on joining us on the Dark Side ;)

    Sorry for a second post but wow just saw the spike bcg that's sick and 250 isn't bad for any good part but out of curiosity does the finish fade at all or does it keep that awesome bronze-ish finish for a long time

    They said its easier to clean. If u really want a chrome bcg.. might as well get the DD bcg. Its listed on their site. I think its 190.
