It seems the most 1337 komandoes don't like the wacked out all ham tacti-cool cluttered crap. (Duh) But they don't like the most basic Front-Sight-Base paired only with a rear either? Appearantly they're for plebs? Where do you draw the line between a nice LE6920 and something with everything?
I think having a fixed front, and flip up rear is ideal. Maybe a red dot if you have poor vision.
What are your basics, for an all around general purpose AR?
Folding front and rear
Low power variable optic that does true 1x mounted as low as possible
Muzzle brake, I will never be in a situation where muzzle flash will be a hindrance so I have no need for a FH.
45 degree non ambi selector
Extended handguard, TOB may be situational but it excels at close range target hosing.
having a red dot if you have poor vision is a shitty idea, chances are you won't be able to see a crisp dot. Better off with a 1x prismatic or a rugged 1-4x variable.
other than that, absolute minimum is good sling and good light
the next on my list is storage compartments in the grip and stock, for a backup bolt and small tubes of lube respectively. They don't really add weight/bulk and can come in real handy in a pinch.
The best thing to put in those are the tiny GPS location emitters. Nothing like being able to effectively LoJack your rifle if it ever gets stolen.
>Surprise Fucker! I've got one gun you didn't steal and OH LOOK it's an inch from your eye!
>back up sights
>replace poopy A2 grip
That's all that's a must. Anything is just personal preference. I switched to a slim handguard because I have small hands and plan on switching the buttstock because I don't like the wiggle in the original stock. I may replace my flash hider, but that's just for cosmetic reasons.
Well, here's mine.
>aimpoint CCO or variable power 1-4 scope
Then practice. Get a shitload of ammo and mags and go practice until you be effective with your rifle.

Don't start buying shit just because someone told you to. Get to know where you keep placing your hands at, then you can start attaching shit on the handguards according to that instead of throwing a flashlight or grip somewhere at random.
Keep it bone stock and see what you might need accordingly as you shoot, don't get sucked into the whole /arg/ faggotry that is spending your paycheck on dumb shit just so you can avatafag with it.
This is at most what you need.
that's it, buying a geissle trigger won't make you a better shot, learn how to shoot your gun well and then worry about throwing shit on it.
