Tonight I realized I need to add some stuff to my Colt 6920?

    I was sitting in my living room when my mum told me she thought she heard somebody open my gate to my yard. I didn't hear anything so I didn't think too much about it. Then like 5 seconds later I heard this big crash in my backyard. I went to grab my Glock and remembered I didn't have any bullets in it because I forgot to load it after I came back from the range.(STUPID) So I went and grabbed my AR and went outside with it and a flashlight. I could see tracks going from my front yard to my back yard and over my fence but I didn't see anybody. I let my dog out (German Shepherd) and he was sniffing all over the place and wanted to go after whoever it was but I didn't let him.

    Anyways, I noticed it would be a lot better if I added a light to my AR. So it wouldn't be so awkward at night time. What light should I get? I figure something Surefire but I don't know what model to get. I would also have to get some type of rail system to attach it to. What is a good brand/model for that? I also want a vertical grip so I can have something with a momentary on pad/switch on it. What is a good vertical grip brand/model? Since we are talking about grips, I was thinking about the last time I was at a gun show and I held an AR with a nice rubber grip on it. What is a good rubber grip to get? Hogue? Model? Thanks in advance.

    I have a tlr-1 on my Ar ,good if you have a rail already, I keep it on the gun all the time. I have seen different ways to attach a tac light to an Ar which looked fine to me just look around.Also you may want some type of optics. I have an eotech and am going to add a magnifier. Besides those, maybe a sling if you like. Keep it light weight.

    Ihave a Surefire quad rail on it and put this light on it and Ithink I made the right choice. I also have a ACOG on order and cant wait to se that on my Colt. It all boils down to what you want $ you have to spend.

    I have a Primary Arms light mounted on the YHM railed FF tube of my 16" Bushy. It works very well. I can clearly identify my neighbors at 100 yards.

    I want to get a good sling for my rifle but I hear so much different stuff I just don't know which one to get. I was thinking about adding a holo or an ACOG but I don't have the money for that right now. One day. I want to buy some more guns before I add a lot of stuff to the ones I have.

    ...everyone's got them!!!:rofl:

    I had a sling on my S&W M&P15T when I got it, but ended up taking it off. When something goes bump in the night, I don't want it in the way when I grab and charge my rifle. I'm not in the Military, I don't march mile after mile or stand gaurd with my rifle. Even when I'm at the range, I'm never carrying it more than 100 yards out to and back from replacing the target.

    I have a Surefire weapon light with a pressure pad that fits into a recess in my Tango Down VFG mounted on my fore-rail, and this works very well. I also have an Eotech 552, which works very well in the dark.

    I too am interested in an ACOG, and hope to get a TA31CH as soon as my employment situation improves. Everyone here talks about hitting at 100+ yards with iron sights, and I have 20/20 vision, but making out a target at anything past 50 yards seems difficult. I dunno, maybe I just use small targets.

    This is exactly what I have, though the light is a G2 LED. Works great mounted at 12:00.

    OP, for a vert grip, I have the Larue FUG. I love it for several reasons. First, it comes with three different handsize "plugs", so you can change the length of it. Second, it has a quick detach lever. On and off in a second. It's very sturdy.

    For a sling, I like a single point. I have a Gear Sector single point (great company) attached to a Noveske QD endplate (also purchased from Gear Sector).

    That'd be my first choice as well but it's VERY expensive!

    LOL. Me too. The first time I went to the range my groups at 100+ yards with the irons weren't so great. I was using 12x12 targets. I did hit the bullseye once but I think it was pure luck.

    At first I was going to get a 2 point sling that goes into a 1 point but now I think I'll just stick with a good 2 point but I don't know which one yet.

    I use a SureFire G2 (about $60 (?) at Home Depot, and plenty of light for me - I have a bit of woods 35' off my back door. I have a...(forget the name, and don't want to grab it right now cause I don't want to wake my wife/child who are near the bed-side safe the gun is in) I can make it work on the AR (with a DD Lite 12" rail) and my Glock, but the Glock is a bit of work, as the screws barely reach. I can also mount it on my shotgun (have a small forward rail on it).

    I like my Ergo grip - it's nearly as big as a 12-oz. aluminum can and I can get perfect grip on it, and I use an Ergo Rite-pull (extends the grip backwards so I can just reach the trigger perfectly with a proper grip, and also use a MagPul BAD lever (trigger finger bolt release) and a Brownell's extended mag release. This allows me to operate the rifle more easily one-handed, in case I need to hold a dog leash with the other hand, or a phone, cuffs, or whatever. I also use a MagPul AFG (angled fore-grip) - it is the perfect fore grip for me. Fits just right the way I like to hold the rifle, allows good position to operate the light when it's mounted on the rifle (I can push the back button or rotate the knob to keep it on constantly). I also use MagPul's little two-piece rail covers. I am not sold on those, though - I would prefer a more rubberized/positive grip - maybe some stippling or different material would be better.

    My recommendations:

    1) Daniel Defense Omega carbine length rail. Gives you free floating rail without gunsmithing or permanent change to your 6920.
    2) VTAC light mount. Inexpensive and sturdy. Designed by a master.
    3) VTAC wide padded sling. Very comfy and functional.
    4) Surefire G2 or 6P LED. Get a 'forward clicky' tailcap switch.

    What is the best rail system? I need to get that before anything so I'll spend whatever on that. I also need to know what the best sling is.
