Hi all, I have recently purchased a colt ar15 with a floating ss bull barrel. I have heard that there is a lot of things that you can do to it to increase the accuracy. I was wondering what was could I do to get the most bang for the buck? Could you also list any websites too. Thanks

Practice. Practice with good ammo. If it doesn't alerady have one, put in a good trigger.

I've got a Colt 6724 myself and I'm really disappointed in the accuracy of it. I can do better with my M16 with a 1 in 7 twist.

I practiced hard for a few months with my AR. When I sighted in my hunting rifle that Fall, I got the best groups of my life. That crappy AR trigger really makes you focus on the fundamentals. If I was going to improve my AR, the trigger would be the first thing to be replaced. But everyone is right that practice is more important.

Thanks I have enjoyed shooting it. but like with many rifles, some of the stock parts can be replaced with better parts.

i have been using umc 223 from walmart i was planning on getting some military surplus. i have read that some people have problems with the wolf, so i am goin to stay away from that. but what is good ammo with out having to pay an arm and a leg for it?

Do you reload? whatcha shooting? If you paper punch and dont reload the fereral goldmedal match is hard to beat, but big $$$, most bang for the buck? its hard to beat the cheap stuff, try buying about five of each. what works for one gun might not work for another. the wolf stuff only seems to give people problems when they rapid fire for long periods of time, the chamber gets really hot! mealting the paint on the metal cases. good luck.
