Getting a Colt


July 2, 2006, 10:37 AM
I am getting the Colt LE9620, but have a few questions. I want to replace the handguard with a railguard, get a scope, get a verticle grip, and get a Surefire flashlight and mount. Who makes the scope that has a chevron that compensates for .223 trajectory? Also, what brand 4-rail handguard and verticle grip do you recommend? Which Surefire flashlight is best for my rifle and what mount will I need for the light? What is the best combination that I can get for $300, $350? Please give links to any website pages selling the items that you recommend. Thank you.

You're going to have to really scrounge around to find all that stuff for under $350 and not buy junk.

However, I've had good experience with the YHM lightweight rails. They don't ruin the balance, freefloat the barrel and are very reasonably priced.

Try watching the Equipment Exchange on for deals and used stuff.

If you’re thinking about a Trijicon, I believe you need more money.

I'm pretty much sold on the Aimpoint CompM2 scope, but what about the S.P.O.T. Mark III. The Aimpoint will cost about $400, but the S.P.O.T. costs only $165 and everyone seems to be quit pleased with it. As far as the 4-rail forearm, the one mentioned above seems to be suitable. I believe it will cost $120. I want to get either the Surefire 6P ($60) or 9P ($80) flashlight and pressure switch. I have found pressure switches for $10-20 for the 6P, but I can find not pressure switches for the 9P. Does the 9P use the same pressure switches as the 6P or what? Also, as far as the verticle foregrip, what do you know about Leapers' tactical foregrip ($20)? It seems that it will suit my purposes since it is slotted for pressure switches. How will I be able to mount the scope with the carry handle off without the front sight of the rifle blocking the scope's dot?

Save your money gonna need a bit more to say the least. You bought a very nice rifle do not A- over accesorize and B- put crappy parts on her. Do One item at a time and buy best that you can afford. You buy crap you get crap.
