I have a $130 credit with DSArms...

I am building my first AR15... a M&A 16" carbine with mid-length forend, A2 buttstock.

What accessories should I buy?

Mags, and what else?

How many mags?

Thanks!!!!

I'll buy the mags here since you can usually find a better deal here compared to DSA's price for the mags (I assume you are talking about AR15 mags and not FAL mags). For FAL stuff, I like the European Walnut furniture set. I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger on that one since I still have an Ironwood set that I never finished.

Thanks, but I was talking about AR stuff. And the credit there is "use it or lose it" I cannot cash it out. So I eventually have to buy something. Keep those ideas coming, please.

Since you can't cash out your credit, here are my suggestions: [url=http://www.dsarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=CP25&storeid=1&image=]Trijicon 3-Dot Night Sights for M16/AR15, front and rear[/url] I have a set of these on my A1 carbine, it works very well. [url=http://www.dsarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=116&storeid=1&image=magar30.gif]English 30-round Steel Mags[/url] Yeah, I know you can get them cheaper here on EE, but if you have to use up the credit at DSA... [url=http://www.dsarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=823&storeid=1&image=magpull.gif]Mag-Pull (pkg. of 3)[/url] I would have mentioned the various rail accessory fore-ends, but none of them fit your mid-length carbine. Just curious, why the A2 stock, unless you have long arms or do a lot of prone target shooting? I think the A1 stock (called the C1 by Cavalry Arms) is a better choice for a carbine. Also, do you have a flattop upper?

Yes, I have long arms. And I will probably do fair amount of prone shooting.
