Mosby: Notes on Setting Up the Modern Fighting Rifle


They say AR-15's / M4's are like Legos for men. Which parts do you really need?

Mosby discusses.

  2. The only item I would change on that picture is a heavy barrel from Accuracy Systems, in 6.8, otherwise I'll take two of everything. :)

  3. I think the standard iron sights have a lot to offer. Not sure I need any of the rest of that stuff. I guess it would be nice to have, but unless you are setting up an AR for long range (which is OK, but a bolt gun seems the more obvious choice) then maybe the iron sights are as good or better. Lazer might be nice. I hate the roughness of all-around picatany rails, it's like grabbing a beer can with pushpins sticking out of it. I much prefer a nice smooth grip. Putting a flashlight on a rifle always seemed stupid to me.
