This is my first AR. As I stated in my introduction post I plan to add an EOTech 552 holosight and a Knights Armament RAS. What do you guys think?

Nice Bushy! Your off to a great start.

Great Choice! Save your money from the optic and rail system. Buy a sling, mags, and ammo and take a class to learn how to effectively USE the weapon.

you dont need the 552 if you are not ever going to buy night vision stuff, get the 511.

BTW nice carbine, dont mistreat it, she'll probably mistreat you

512 would be better in terms of battery availability and battery life. Use those energizer e2 batteries in it. They last damn near forever. Here's one of my bushy like yours, slightly modified.



It has a MI 4 railed regular handguard on it, and an Eotech 512 rev F from SKD tactical. The vertical grip is a no name that I found at the gunshow, but it mounts really solid and has a good texture on it. No BUIS yet, haven't found one that I really like, and the Eotech window can be used as a makeshift rear sight, for now.

MY BAD.....................I meant the 512

Nice gun, I have the same one myself.

IMHO,Since this is your first AR, learn to shoot with iron sights for a while before going all high-tech. You will have plenty of time for upgrades.

BRD lasts a long, long time

Heres a pic of my Bushmaster M4A3, flanked by my Colt M4A1 and Bushmaster AR contraption. Yes, it has CLP all over it, but it wasn't even cleaned for the first time when I took this pic. I've got the permanently attached Phantom though with the shorter barrel.

I've since put a Hogue gripon it and am awaiting a rail system, BUIS and vertical forward grip for the Bushy M4. Contemplating what optics to put on it. BTW, the Colt has an ARMS 40 BUIS with an EOTECH 511 on it. The postban is something I let the woman shoot, but it does shoot nicely.

OK, Eotech, RAS and ???? What are you forgetting? Could it possibly be the most important? How about a BUIS?
