I don't think accuracy is effected with either. A2 refering to a fixed carry handle. A3 refering to the civilian flattop config (kinda like mine ):

Do this:

A3 configuration

ARMS back up sight

Optic of choice

If you don't want an optic just use the ARMS till you decide you do.

Start w/ the "information" button above, then graduate to the "tacked" topics (up-top) in the AR Discussion, Ammuntion and Build it Youself forums.

Welcome to the board!

If you're serious about buying or building an AR15, start in the technical forums, everything you need to know will be found in there without the smart ass answers you'll find in General Discussion.



Not that I have anything against smart asses.

RPM: The A2 and A3 configuration has nothing to with the accuracy, but the ease of mounting optics and accesories.

A4 is the flat top.

The A3 does not have a removable carry handle. It is simply an A2 but with full instead of burst.

According to Army FM 3-22.9

They must have changed things since 01. Back then, the A1 and A2s had fixed carrying handles while the A3 and A4s had removeable handles (other differences being the FA or burst settings).
