    COLT 6721 AR15A3 Modifications

    Hey Guys so I have a Colt 6721 AR15A3 that im looking to make some modifications to.
    I was thinking about doing a front sight removal and adding a low profile gas block and a free float Hand guard.
    Adding a scope of some kind possibly a BDC looking for something in the 4-16 power range.
    Backup front and rear magpul flip up sights
    looking at also putting a 45 degree offset red dot on it as well for short range fast target acquisition.

    Just was looking for any input on particular makes a models of any associated parts and thoughts on the modifications or any advice moving forward.


    I've had the gun for about 3 years now and currently have a UTG 3-12 power scope on it paired with some cheap rings.
    The gun shoots Pretty well as is but decided I want to do some upgrades.
    I primarily shoot 855 62 grain ammo and currently achieve anywhere from 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch groupings at 100 yards

    Why not just get a new upper? For the price you are about to pay to heavily mod out your existing setup, ya might as well get this

    I would buy or build a second upper. Toss a carry handle on the Colt.

    Give White Oak Armament a call. Build for accuracy.

    There is a company called ADCO who will shave your front gas block if you need to. I used them on my AR build and they do good work.

    The Midwest Industries handguards are very nice as well.
