Raoul asked How to add a rifle scope to an AR 15 with iron sights?

I have an Ar 15 with front iron sights and flip down rear iron sights. Problem is when I put optics on it lines straigh up with the irons making them useless not to mention in the way. Is there any way around this while maintaining accuracy

And got the following answer:

It depends on your rifle scope. You will most likely be limited to an optic that is 4 power or greater (the front sight will blur out), the Marine Corps specifically uses an ACOG 4x on theirs and I have no trouble hitting things out to 500 yards with it mounted and the front sight post in the way. Another option is a true 1x optic like EoTech, Aimpoint, or something else that will co-witness with the front sight or 1/3 co-witness. That would put the red dot on top of your front sight tip or it would put it low enough in the reticel that it wouldn’t be in the way, but would still be usable if your battery dies and you need to flip up the rear sight. Personally I normally buy without a fixed front sight post but for a short range (0-200) fighting carbine with a RDS, a fixed front sight can actually be the way to go for a few reasons.

You didn’t mention what optic you are trying or what mount you are trying it in so it is difficult to give more specific and helpful information than the general statements above, hope that helps.

Tyler asked What average priced rifles have military style iron sights?

I’m looking for a .223 Remington or .308 Winchester rifle that costs between $500 and $1000 and has military style iron sights as well as a mount for optics. M1A’s are a bit out of my price range and I’d rather not buy a modified California legal AR-15, but I’m still trying to buy a rifle that I can work on improving my marksmanship with an M16. Any suggestions? Thanks.

And got the following answer:

might as well get the AR-15. you can build one for under 1000. All you have to do is put a 20-25 dollar “bullet button” to make the gun legal and shot 10 round mags. instead of deploying the magazine out by pushing the button you use the tip of a bullet and press inside. its as simple as that. just buy a good amount of mags and some good Iron sights and you are good to go. I use the A.R.M.S. low profile rear sight because when I decide to use optics it does not protrude in my field of view.

Wayne asked I purchased a Daniel Defense AR-15. Any recommendations for quality optics/scope to put on it?

Have a new Daniel Defense AR 15. It is a quality weapon. Don’t want to spend $1500 on optics but willing to spend more than $30 too. Hoping to get away with spending under $300. More recreational shooting and defense (if the country implodes-ha). Seriously, newer to shooting an AR and looking for recommendations of optics.
My primary use will be recreational target shooting at a range.

And got the following answer:

Do you want a red dot/holographic or a scope?

This is a great combo red dot/3x for the price:

SaxWalrus asked What do the letters and numbers on the top of my Ar-15 mean?

On the rail of my Del-Ton AR-15 assault rifle, there are white letters and numbers that say T4, T6, T8, T10, and T12. What are they there for?

And got the following answer:

They are there so you can put accessories/optics back in the same spot each time you remove them.

majpopo asked What is the best and most reliable online Military Surplus Store?

Looking for mostly camping equipment, military equipment, AR-15 magazines, and other “survival” type gear.

And got the following answer:

I do business with two and have been pleased with both:

For magazines, ammo and more hardcore military stuff:

For more general stuff like camping, footware and optics

These are great catalogs to keep in the “library” at home

class93409 asked What are the benefits for each in choosing a stripped or full upper receiver for an AR-15?

I recently purchased an AR-15. I am in the military and know my way around guns but am in no way an expert. The AR I have has an integrated carrying handle and I would much rather prefer a picatinny system for mounting optics. What are the pros and cons to using a stripped upper receiver versus a complete full length upper receiver? Just looking to hear some opinions.

And got the following answer:

I agree with risonav. At times, buying a stripped upper will save you money. Although, you will need to spend money in buying the necessary tools to put the whole upper together. Vice block, armorer’s wrench, vice, torque wrench, etc. Plus the tools to check the head-space once the barrel is on. Although, once purchased, these tools will continue to be used as you make assemble many more uppers, so they can be considered a one time expense 😉 The cons are the time expense, tool expense, and having to check head-space on the upper. Assembled uppers already have all of this done, but for about $100 extra, more or less. Note, that money figure is excluding the tool expense, because you might have some of those already. Also, checking head-space is not difficult, just takes a little time. By the way, thank you for your service!!
Amended: Assembling an M4 carbine upper from parts from Bravo Company Manufacturing will only save you a few bucks (maybe around $30). Their complete uppers are top notch (equivalent to Colt and such) and start at around $430 minus handguards and CH, BCG. You’ll save more money if you’re building a more “exotic” upper with a lo-pro gas block and free float rail, since you subtract the initial cost of the delta ring assembly and A2 front sight base.

joe b asked Roughly how much does it cost to build an AR-15 at home?

For the bragging rights, I’d like to build my own custom AR-15.Not looking for the cheapest everything, and not to most expensive either, roughly how much would you think it’d cost to build a.223 AR-15 (specialty tools included, because i don’t have any) with an adjustable stock and floating accessory rail. not including, up front, specialty sights/optics or a front grip.

And got the following answer:

You should be able to build yourself one for roughly $700-$900 (including tools) if you scour the internet for the lowest prices of the components that you choose to use for it. has virtually every tool you can imagine for doing assembly work or maintenance on the AR-15 type rifles.

Good luck –
