AR-15 Accessories That Don’t Suck
So you want to trick out your AR-15 with some new gear – and oh boy do you have a lot of options for AR accessories nowadays. From sights to slings and more, we’ve made a list of AR-15 accessories that won’t make you look like a tool at the range while providing actual benefit and functionality for your rifle.
Let’s take a look at some of the best AR-15 accessories that will go great with any AR rifle below.
1. Laser Sights
Um…duh! We are Gun Laser Guide after all! So the question is: “Why do I need a laser sight for my AR-15?”
Well there are a lot of reasons to get a laser sight but here are a few ways how a laser sight can help on your AR:
- Faster target acquisition – a laser sight can help you find your target faster than looking down iron sights – and fire from the hip accurately
- Excellent for home defense – just because YOU can acquire a target quickly and fire accurately does not mean that your kids or spouse can; a laser sight can help them use your AR if you’re not able to
- Fear factor – as Americans, we’ve been trained since birth to relate laser sights and red dots to special forces weapons…burglars and bad guys feel the same way and might think twice if they see that your rifle has a laser
Our Favorite Laser Sight for AR-15?
Well, that’s a tough one but we really like the Ozark Armament Green Laser Sight for ARs. It good for your wallet and for your gun so it’s definitely a win-win.

2. Tactical Flashlight
This might be one of THE best accessories that you’ll ever buy for your AR, especially if it’s being used as a home defense weapon.
A good flashlight for your AR will help you see in low-light situations and blind anyone that’s on the other end of your rifle.
If you want a cool looking accessory for your AR and you want something that is going to be functional at the range, then get a bipod for your AR-15.
Lots of the newer bipods for AR out there come with spring loaded legs for easy operation and they’re all actually made very well.
Some people love them, some people hate them, but we freaking love foregrips on AR-15s. Nothing to me feels more comfortable on a 16″ rifle like a good foregrip that’s going to get those groups tight.
5. Red Dot Sight
If you’re just using iron sights, you’re missing out. The AR-15 platform can make for a VERY accurate rifle and what makes it accurate is a good optic (at least partially, YOU still have to shoot it).
So There You Have It
There’s our list of the best accessories for AR-15 that are both cool and practical. We know that lots of folks really like A2 style rifles and are very traditional with just iron sights but this guide is meant for those of us that got an itch that needs to be scratched! I don’t know about you, but I am always looking to find the perfect accessory for my AR rifles.
