When you want your rifle to truly feel like your own, there is no better way to get this feeling than by enhancing it with a ton of customizations. Some enhancements are purely cosmetic, such as a camo skin or a good luck charm to hang from the barrel. But some other enhancements do truly increase your overall performance with the weapon. We are going to look at some of the best ones you should look at to “pimp out” your favorite weapons.
Nine times out of ten, you probably own a gun with just the base stock. But the stocks they make at the plant are, in a word, terribly uncomfortable. You don’t want to hold onto them to shoot, and when you do, they kick back far worse than under normal circumstances. By putting on a rubber grip, however, you can deal with this issue easily without having to worry about discomfort. Most grips come fairly cheap in virtually any model and offer possibly the greatest way you can improve accuracy while also making it your own.
Ambidextrous Safety Switch
Rather unappreciated in the gun world, the safety mechanism is your last line of defense against misfires and when training young ones how to handle a weapon properly. Oftentimes, however, the safety mechanism is difficult to use in that it comes either as a small switch which can prove difficult to flip or, even worse, a button. You can fix this issue, however, with an ambidextrous safety switch. When you are able to turn on the safety no matter what your dominant hand is, you will be ensure for yourself a better, safer learning experience.
Open sighting has started to die off, unfortunately, due to the prevalence of scopes on modern-day rifles. But any veteran gun user can tell you that the ability to aim with the iron sights is one of the most important skills you can learn as it will enable you to hit whatever it is you need to hit without the aid of high-tech scopes with 10x zoom. Many rifles, especially AR-15s, are no longer built with the iron sight. So widen your options with a back-up set of iron sights which can mount right on the stock where the scope would sit.
There are many other enhancements you can make on your rifle or pistol which you can read about at this Guns and Ammo slide show. Many of these are available at your local weapons retailer for good prices depending on what you are looking for. There are also plenty of Internet outlets, as well, which will give you an even more complete and affordable listing. So look around and see what you can find! These enhancements will give you just the edge you are looking for.
