I really appreciate your advice. I noticed that a few of the products cost more than the gun, so I will put them on my "want list" and probably pick up some of the lower cost items. My primary use is home defense, but I do want to go out hunting for small game.

Now - if you could only do something about the high cost of ammo! :-)

Thanks again...

I have been considering the LaserLyte K15 Green Laser for myself. It will come with a remote pressure pad that you can attach with the cabel managment system in my previous post.

A variable power scope is another way to go. The benefit of a traditional scope is accuracy. The down side is loss of speed in terms of target acquisition. If you will be doing most of your shooting at a bench, a higher magnification scope might be a good way to go. If you want something for home defense or competition, one of the red dot sights I recommended might be the best way to go. Here are a few variable power scopes I would recommend taking a look at:

Nikon M-223
Burris MTAC
Leupold Mark 4 1.5-5x
Kahles K16i 1-6x

Wow. That was a great answer - I appreciate the information.

Do you have a suggestion for a laser pointer? (or whatever they are called)

Most of the scopes didn't have any magnification - except for the Trijicon. Is there a reason why I do or do not need magnification?

Is there an advantage to a short scope versus a long one? I saw a scope that had up to 9x magnification, but it was long.

Thanks.

There are literally thousands of different ways you can go with this. You might think that is a bad thing but it’s really not. It’s good to have options. I recently added a few Maugpul products to my Colt M4 Target Carbine. I went with the MOE Hand Guard as a base to start from. From this point you can add many accessories. Magpul manufactures a number of bolt on rails, grips, and light attachments that will fit into the slots that run along the top, sides, and bottom. You can attach the MOE vertical grip on the bottom guard. This grip will bolt directly to the guard; no need for additional rails. You can then use this Scout Mount to attach this Surefire Mini Scout Light. This really is a nice system because you can either attach the light to the mount via the rail, or you can bolt it directly to the mount; the latter being more secure in my opinion. They also manufacture this Weaponlight Mounting Kit which is great for cable management from the pressure switch.

Here are a few recommendations for optics:
Aimpoint PRO
EOTech OPMOD EXPS2
Trijicon ACOG
A little cheaper, but still high quality:
Vortex Strike Fire
Burris AR-123
Lucid HD7
I really like all of these sights. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages. I personally run the Aimpoint PRO because I like the long battery life (somewhere near 30,000 hours), and I have thousands of hours training with one of these in the US Army. I would also highly recommend the EOTech. There really are no other sights that compare to its FOV, it is in a league of its own in that area. The only down side is the 500 hour battery life. The ACOG is also a fantastic sight in its own right. You have the benefit of 4x magnification while also having some of the benefits of a red dot sight by way of the reticle design. It uses a fiber optic strip to filter ambient light into the reticle. The result is a bright, useable aiming point.
Any way you go here, you have many options.

I recently purchased a Sig Sauer RM400-16B-C-SRP. It was described as this "The SIGM400 SRP removes the front sight tower and replaces it with an M1913 railed front gas block. This sight-ready platform allows the operator to mount any optic without worrying about the sight tower. The gas block accepts all iron sights designed to work on the Mil-Spec Picatinny rail."

I am looking for a nice scope with magnification, a red or green laser (not just a dot in the eyepiece), a flashlight (optional) and a forend grip. I have no idea what to purchase, but I want something like this that I found on another forum.

Magpul Forend
Magpul Vertical Grip
Magpul Illumination Kit
Surefire Tactical Light
Red/Green Laser

I am a novice, and I don't know all of the terms yet. So, if you could post links to each item as to where I could buy them, that would be appreciated. I want to be able to purchase everything and I can probably figure out how to assemble it. Thanks.
