I will be getting my first AR in the next few months. Most likely a Rock River Arms CAR A2 (16" barrel, mid length handguard, A2 buttstock). I am wondering what type of accessories would be good to start out with? I was thinking that perhaps a muzzle brake and some sort of front mount would make sense. At the moment I'm considering this mount: [url]http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/slings/yhm-639.htm[/url] and this brake: [url]http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/brakes/yhm-259p.htm[/url] I am considering that mount, because I think a tactical light would make sense as a future purchase, and I want to mount the light beneath the barrel (since I can fire right or left handed). What exactly does having a muzzle brake gain me? I am open to any suggestions, different brands, or different accessories that would make more sense. Thanks.

*'Rifle case' w/ mag pouches on the side. * extra magazines (20, 30 or 40 rounders) * sling for rifle * cleaning kit for butt stock Brain not working yet....that's all it'll let me think of.

Good ideas, thanks. What companies sell a variety of good cases and slings? I allready have a couple of spare magazines and I'm sure I can pick up a cleaning kit at my local shop.

I think I will stick with just a plain rifle at first, but I still need to know a good source for a decent case and a sling. I'd prefer a hard case that I can lock. As far as a sling, I don't know what I want.
