I just ordered an Olympic Arms PCR-16 which will be my first AR-15. I don't have any experience with any of these so I have a few questions if someone can help me out. Will Weaver rings fit the Picatinny flat top or do I need special rings? What kind of bipod would be easiest to mount? What type mags are the best? I have not handled this particular model but it looked the best for what I want to do which is use it for Coyotes. I hope I bought a good one.

Probably a Harris.

Stick with any USGI, I like Snghez the best, but that's personal preference.

.223 is a great round for yotes. Olympic is a good brand. Will you be handloading?

you'll need to buy a stud to put under your handguards to mount a harris bipod. 1 inch "weaver" rings will fit your flattop rail.

Thanks. I have the equipment but haven't reloaded in a long time. Would it be economical to reload with all the cheap .223 ammo around, or should I stay away from surplus stuff?

I reload 223 when I want supreme, handloaded accuracy. Aside from that I stick to military surplus like Lake City M193. At a price of about $179 to $199 per thousand delivered it isn't much more expensive than reloading.
