    Posted by Logan on April 1, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    Hello all,

    I currently own a Bushmaster XM-15 and am looking to upgrade a bit. I love my AR, make no mistake, but I’m thinking of trying to improve it. This is the closest thing to my model I could find (and I think this is it)

    My issue is that I am one of the poors and can’t afford anything truly ridiculous. I’d love to pick up some insane-o brand AR and go ham, but alas, the funds are not available. What sort of upgrades would serve me best?

    Ammo and practice. Upgrayedd the shooter.

    !!!!!DRY FIRE/MEDICAL TRAINING!!!!!, and a weapon mounted light and a sling are the more important things you can do to improve. Then slowly start upgrading the internals as budget allows. UFPRO made a great combat medic video series and ronin tactics, trex arms and a bunch of other channels are available with free SOF level knowledge. Work on yourself as a shooter before buying better gear

    I’ll agree with the first comment here. Also point out that this is the worst time to buy anything (not just price wise but also qc wise). It’d be helpful to know what kinda budget we are working with.

    Additionally, do you have things that actually improve your capabilities? For example do you have a reliable light, Red dot, and sling? If not I’d start there.

    Could look into triggers. Do you want a two stage or single stage, how much take up do you want, lbs of force to break, reset time, etc.

    Then you have iron sights, red dots and scopes to consider.

    But ammo and practice will make the biggest difference to your shooting.

    Improve what? What don’t you like about it, what do you want to that you can’t because of the rifle?

    When in doubt, more ammo and range time

    Unless you have a reason to “upgrade” something specifically, there’s no point in doing it. Shoot the thing more to the point where you know what needs to be changed around.
