Hi, I just finished building (err..assembling) my first AR-15 (of many, I'm sure). I'm now looking to accessorize my rifle. I've seen many threads on the latest, greatest doo-dads but I was also thinking that there must be some accssories that should be avoided as unnecessary, stupid, or down right dangerous. So...does anyone have a story to share? Thanks... Matt in Colorado

Gapper (don't know if this counts, if it does than NV). Edited to add: it's the solution to a non-existant problem.

Y'know I think these look silly and was prepared to hate them but I tried one today and it actually helped, you can pull the rifle toward your shoulder which helps stability. Pistol grip plug falls out with no provocation, useless. Tac-triggers suck. Tac-latch isn't one of my favorites. You can reach the charging handle under the optics easily IMHO.

Agreed. What a serious waste of good ammo money. Anyone want to buy a vertical fore grip cheap?

there supposed to allow "full auto" like fire. but what they really do is make ya waste money on them.

The gapper is a life saver on the middle finger knuckle. Try holding your rifle, one handed, for a mag change, in the low ready position about 25 times in a day for a couple of days. That knuckle supports a good deal of pressure up against those sharp little edges. Gapper=good

I'll have to disagree about few items posted. 1) three point sling: Definitley more comfy that the "silent sling" and won't come undone sending your AR crashing to the ground. 2) Vert Grip: More natural/comfortable way to steady your rifle. 3) Gapper: definitely looking into that of a decent pair of gloves. Ditto to AR15for fun's post. I definitely agree with all those tac triggers.

UNLESS you can get -37mm bird bombs (flash bang application) -37mm smoke (obvious) -37mm flares (incindeary) -37mm CS (obvious) also a few cool LE 37mm rounds out there if you can lay your hands on them. HOWEVER, none of the above is as fun as the 40mm and it's available rounds.

A "look alike" non collapsable stock. Looks like the real thing for all those who wanna look like the real thing. I've seen no reason for this, but I guess that a lot of you do. Wasn't it on the 1st LEGP?

Hey..if you really want to get rid of the vertical fore grip I have been looking for a good cheap one. I actually had one ordered from AZShooter, but...well we won't go into that. Shoot me an email....I would email you but I am not at home now. medcop

Sniper_Wolfe - maybe you've never shot your AR *all day long*, or maybe you have "leather hands". The "gap" will grind your middle finger's middle knuckle up - very uncomfortable. Gapper fixes that. A bench shooter would never notice. Tate
