    What is the one thing you could not live without on your AR? Could be your optic, stock, grip...but only one! What is your reason?

    +1 on DieselScout's post, and to go with that, lots and lots of mags, Pmags specifically.

    For me it would be a high quality optic. I have a Nikon 2-8x 223 scope. Kind of wish I had gotten something with high power magnification, but I sure can't fault the quality of the glass.

    Assuming ammo and mags are not accessories, my two stage trigger is simply the best modification part I have ever installed. Clean, repeatable, light break every time. It was an instant improvement in accuracy, offhand or bench, and thus boosted my confidence with my rifle. I kinda cringe now when I have to pull a stock crispety-crunchity trigger.

    I would have to say my streamlight tlr1. Turns any night into day.

    Having said that, that's the only accessory on my ar!

    Optic, or Red Dot. Anything with a single object sighting plane. My eyes are getting too old for irons.

    Optic. By far it would improve your accurate and speed. I prefer the red dot optics for my AR

    Red dot optic because of my eyes as well. I prefer the Aimpoint.

    I would have to go with a red dot optic as well. Wish I could afford a super nice one, but I have a hard time putting a 500-700 optic on a 500-700 rifle.
    The cheap ones the wife and I have work fine for us.

    My Aimpoint Comp ML3 red dot. Love that thing

    I won't say I can't live without it, but my second most favorite AR accessory is my LULA AR15 mag loader. It makes loading mags a breeze and is definitely a thumb saver for long range sessions.

    Suppressor, because when SHTF I will still be able to hear you sneaking up on me. That bottle opener is pretty neat though.
