Thread: Carbine Questions

  1. Carbine Questions

    Attn Mod: If this is in the wrong section please move it, didn't know where else to put it...


    I recently acquired a DPMS Sportical in 5.56/2.23 I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about rifles. I plan on taking an operators course soon.

    I know how to manipulate all the functions of the weapon, field strip, and follow basic firearm safety with it.

    I wanted to get opinions on optics, and other modifications that one would recommend for a defensive rifle.

    It is a flat top with picitinny rails, there are no iron sights (are BUIS worth it?)

  3. If you get battery powered optics you will be thankful for the BUIS the day you go to the range and realize you left them on the last time you went shooting.

    If it were a toy, it would not matter. Since you consider it a defensive weapon, BUIS are a no-brainer.

    For all the info you can handle on carbines, you should check out:

    AR15.Com - Your Firearm Resource. (AR-15, AR-10, M4 Carbine, M16, H&K, SIG, FNH, FAL, AK-47, 50 Cal, M1/M1A, Handgun, Pistol, Training, Hunting, and More!)

    and

    M4Carbine.net Forums - Powered by vBulletin

    ar15.com is the mother of all carbine communities with lots of traffic and runs the whole spectrum from authoritative to asinine.

    m4carbine is a much smaller more hard-core community. BS'ers tend to get called out quickly. So, it is pretty easy to separate the facts and well reasoned opinions of those with real-world experience from the yammering of wannabes and posers.

    Always happy to try to lead others astray! Besides, no such thing as too much gun porn. As someone wittier than I said, "AR-15's are like Barbie for men."
