Help prioritize a list of accessories or upgrades for a plain old AR15 rifle
Figure you can only budget $200-300 at a time for upgrades
I assume ammo would be 1st

Spend it on ammo, forget all that other shit with the possible exception of optics.

$300 won't even get you the entry fee to any reputable carbine course, much less half the ammo req'd for the course.

I'd go Vortex Strikefire with a mount and spend the balance on good mags and ammo.

After that go for a new Colt bolt and a good trigger.

A descent optic, BUIS if a flattop AR, and a bi-pod makes a helluva difference

$200 to $300 including ammo?

OK assume $300

250 rounds of Aguila ammo from Aim Surplus $80

10 black Teflon mags with Magpul followers $85 Primary Arms

TRS25 optic and lower 1/3 mount $80 Primary Arms

Used Surefire G2 and a scope ring off the EE, should be able to get both for $40 or less, and add a drop in LED unit for another $20 or less

That's about $300. You should be able to grab a decent sling for under $20 as well.

Go Shoot the Gun!

Love him or hate him, he is right on about 99% of the stuff he opines on.

I would add one more magazine, two double magazine pouches and something to carry them on like a belt.

Get some quality training and you will realize that hanging a bunch of shit on your gun is not the way to go.

Master your irons,  and then invest in an Aimpoint

If you want to play Barbie dress up with your gun then spend the cash on pretty accessories
