I caught a pretty good series called AR Accessories Do’s and Don’ts last night. It’s not professionally done, looks like some guy in his shop with a camera, but he’s got a lot of good information.
The first in the series of seven episodes is about 10 minutes long with about 2 minutes of him talking about his credentials and background. The other six were between 8 and 20 minutes long and in each of them he talks about 3 different accessories how they should be run. He covers a lot of different things, everything from slings to those stupid fucking 45 degree iron sights. Myself, the only shit I got hanging off my carbine is my optics, my iron sights and my flashlight, but it’s still interesting to watch.
Check ’em out when you get a chance. Watch them, listen to what he says and think about it, but in the end do what works for you. Here’s the first one:
