Just about a week away from buying my first AR-15 wich will be a Colt Post-ban Match Target HBar .223 Just wondering what modification is the most popular to do first if there is one.  The model im getting has a fixed carry handle and standard stock.

Trigger. My first AR was a Colt competition Hbar Match flattop. It was 'supposed' to have an excellent trigger. My smith's scale went up to 15 pounds. It wasn't enough to set it off.

Went with a Jewell trigger and love it.

I know this sounds lame but I always started off replacing the standard pistol grip with one form Hogue.
Its probably the most popular replacement grip.

Replace the A2 stock with an A1 stock.

Ah, good.  That was my first modification, too and I was beginning to think I had dome something wrong.  [:D]

Still using stock BM trigger because I can't afford an Accuracy Speaks single stage yet.  [:(]

I started with the trigger and hogue grip and then within weeks ordered the armalite one piece scope mount and mounted the 6-18x40 scope off of my varmint rifle on it and then added a briley carbon fiber free float tube , Jard trigger and Olympic Ultramatch barrel and while it was all tore apart painted the furniture desert tan and swapped the scope for a 3-9x40 Bushnell 3200 elite scope . I have only had this rifle 2 months or so but since I am a gun snob I couldnt just run around with a plain old Bushmaster A3 for more than a couple days . I havent got to shoot it since its latest transmogrification since it has been raining everyday but am looking forward to seeing how it shoots now .

Thanks for input ! This is a great forum.  Looking at grip ...going to at least shot it for a while to try out trigger.  I had an olympic arms CAR-15 with a propoint red dot for about a week and sold it for a 500.00 profit before shooting it.  Looking at how much sights/scopes cost..Its like my photography hobby..The camera doesnt cost alot but a good lens does.  Kinda like a gun with a good sight...  Thanks again !

Collapsible stock on a R6530, then a fake "slipover" FH to replace the A2 FH.  That was back when Bushmaster answered the phone as, "Quality Parts Co."

Surefire M500. I think a light is the most important accessory, even more so than a spare mag. In addition to the fact that most deadly encounters are over within 3 rounds (one mag is way more than enough) it is also true that most happen is reduced to low light.
