Just bought an Armalite Eagle optics ready carbine in .223 Wylde with heavy 16" barrel. I'm gonna put a Vortex Strike Eagle 1x6-24 on it as well. Any opinions on what parts to upgrade besides the trigger to enhance the performance of this firearm? All advise and knowledge is greatly appreciated and thanks.

Put a trigger in it and shoot away

Trigger and ammo. Head to the range.

based on what you have and don't yet want to invest in a significant trigger upgrade, good ammo. That said, i like the JP spring kit. it's very affordable and will lighten the pull significantly. does nothing to clear up any gritty feeling. FYI, the warning that comes with lighter springs is that it may not strike the firing pin hard enough to set off harder military type primers. I;ve not experienced this problem but i generally don't shoot surplus ammo but apparently the mililtary has. which is the official stated reason why, along with safety for accidential discharge, the milspec trigger is the way it.

A good trigger helps every rifle.

Does this one have a free float handgaurd on it? My Armalite did not, and when I switched it over to free float, the grouping was literally cut in half.

A trigger is usually the best AR upgrade out there. Sometimes on a rifle with a scope, an extended charging handle can be nice.

Good info. folks, it has the factory handguard right now. I'll check on the type of hand guard tonight. It's a 6" and I doubt it's free float.
