Thank you all.
I'm not much into "tricking" things out. I bought a sling just this morning. I will buy a bunch of 10 rd mags (that's all were allowed to have in Ca) and lots and lots of ammo. Them maybe some optics down the line.
One of the greatest values in the gun world. Thats a great AR. Dont feel obligated to trick it out either... keep it light, keep it simple. At most I would say a light and foregrip. Maybe an optic at some point, but get good with the irons first. It aint broke, so dont waste too much money fixing it
That's one fine looking rifle. Enjoy!!
Funny how Sig came around to our way of thinking,the 556 just was'nt doing it for them,and we are awaiting a range report.
I put only 50 rounds through her the other day...I'm working on loads...anyway not a glitch. Shells ejected at the 4 o'clock position. Smooth shooting. In fact my Wife wanted to shoot it. I loaded up 5 for her and she shot the first one from the bench, looked up and the got back in postion and shot the second one. She looked over her shoulder at me and said "I want one!" She then stood up and fired the last 3 off hand.
She's always been the one to flinch at recoil and the "boom" concussion but not with this rifle. Looks like I have a great looking shooting partner.
That's super nice bro! I like to keep my rifles simple as well. I have the magpul Moe forend with rail piece for light and a primary arms micro dot. That's it and its great!

I also bought an M400 as my first AR. I have been buying lots of bulk ammo to try at the range. I will shoot 500+ rounds with the iron sights before I consider adding optics and other mods.
- Eveybody says that the 1:7 twist barrel is best suited for the heavier 69 and 77 grain bullets, but all of the decent, inexpensive (as opposed to cheap) ammo is 55 grain. How much will my accuracy be affected with my M400 using 55 grain ammo versus 69 or 77 grain? I am guessing maybe an inch or so wider diameter at 100 yards when shooting with iron sights? For others with 1:7 twist barrels, do you shoot 55 grain bulk ammo at the range, but test some of the heavier bullets for the best load; pay-up for the heavier bullets in bulk; or reload your own ammo so it isn't an issue?
- In the midst of an impromptu firefight at a residence, would a non-professional (military or police) with minimal formal basic training have the presence of mind to do more than point an shoot (shotgun reflex vs. mount, aim & shoot)?
- What do I need to buy before heading to the range for the first time? benchrest? scope with tripod for viewing where my shots are hitting? I have a shooter's bag, eye and hearing protection. Do I have to bring my own targets or can you buy or rent most of what you need at the range? Although I may be a beginner, I don't want to look like one.
Thanks for helping out an AR noob.
Congrats on the new addition. ;-)
