Re: New pew

Ditto on SureFire lights. I also bought this 1000 lumen Streamlight 88065 Pro Tac HL-X 1,000 Lumen Professional Tactical Flashlight a couple of weeks ago, an I’m pretty happy with it:

Congratulations that is a good looking family member.
Thank you, It is definitely a welcome addition. I'm sure something else will change before long, I still need some sort of light for use as home defense. I'm gonna also look into some type of ACOG type sight as well and do away with the red dot probably.
Is this your first AR? If so, it looks like you got off to a good start.

Regarding the ACOG, I would definitely recommend one (I live mine), but they can run 2-3 times what you paid for the rifle. With a real Trijicon ACOG, you’re paying for both tritium and fiberoptic illumination of an etched BDC reticle, and for VERY high quality glass. Expect to pay anywhere between $900 and $1500. But Primary Arms and Burris both make ACOG-like optics that are fixed focus, with a battery illuminated BDC reticle, which cost something in the $250-$450 range. They are available, depending on brand, in the 1X, 3X, 4X, or 5X magnification range.

But what would be even more versatile, would be a low range variable power optic in the 1-4X, 1-6X, or 1-8X range. Again, Primary Arms and Burris both have affordable scopes in that range, and you can add Vortex Optics to that too. The latest Primary Arms versions are First Focal Plane, which is a pretty good feature for such an affordable optic.

Anyway, I’d take a look at those companies, unless you really WANT to drop some serious money on a real Trijicon ACOG.
