Ok I am planning on picking up a brand new RRA Entry Tactical w/ chrome lined barrel tomorrow. I am going to pick up a few extra mags, already have ammo, but was thinking adding an accessory or two. I was thinking of maybe adding a Vltor, Extended length free float handguard and a TangoDown vertical grip. Or instead getting an EOTech 512.A65/1.

What would you guys think is more important? EOTech or Voltor handgaurd and grip( and get an EOTech later?)

As far as the EOTech goes I dont know much about them other than shooters seem to like them. How do they work? Anyone have the EOTech 512.A65/1?

Is the EOTech 512.A65/1 good? What does it do? I know there is another model EOTech 552.A65/1 that can be used for night vision and is more waterproof but I dont need that.

Opinions? Thanks so much!!!

If you are really seeking advice, then here is mine:

1) Ammo
2) Learn your irons
3) Training carbine course
4) More ammo

Much later worry about bling bling.

Not knowing your prior training I would say go with the EOtech as the first addition.

I have an EOTECH an absolutely LOVE it! I was looking at a bunch of different scopes like aimpoint, Acog, and few others. I decided that it fit me the best and I got it. It's really easy to use and gives you a better field of vision than with the tubed red dots.

Yea, I am going to look at the EOTech 512.A65/1 when I go pick up my RRA. I could have it shipped but wanted to go down and have a look at all the add on options available and see what I really need or want. I do want to practice with the standard sights. While I like that "cool" tactical look I really want function. The dealer was really helpful and said to just come on down and take a look and see what I want. Wasnt trying to push accessories I didnt need. He has his own personal ARs that I can look at.

you got the tactical carry handle with your entry tactical right?

If so, then know this.

If you mount the eotech on the tactical carry handle it will block the iron sights (and the eotech will be mounted awfully high). If you want an eotech, rra makes the dominator mount specifically for that. Or you could dump the carry handle all together and mount the eotech on your flat top and mount a BUIS behind the eotech.

The tactical carry handle that comes standard is designed specifically for the aimpoints (lower third co witness if you use low rings) <-- my set up.

Of course it wouldn't hurt to get VERY familiar with the irons before mounting any optics. But I don't know your experience. You may be a very competent shooter already. Hope this helps. Good choice of rifle by the way. I'm very satisfied with mine.

irons are tops; best accessories are USGI mags and good ammo

for all those upgrades, you might as well build an AR w/ all that stuff and save some money....
i like EOTechs--unless you got the extra cash or plan on using NVGs, i would just get the non-NVG EOs
