This is the rifle setup (with a few options) that we recommend. We've put all the right parts into a single, simple package. Simply choose the optic and light that fit your needs, and we take care of the rest.
The Vicker's sling is color-matched to the chosen rifle color: black sling with black rifle, coyote brown sling with mil spec + rifle, and wolf grey sling with tornado grey rifle.
The Daniel Defense M4V11 is what our instructors use. We like Daniel Defense because their rifles are tough, dependable, and reasonably economical. We like this particular design (V11) because the rail, which extends to the end of the barrel, is lightweight and allows for mounting of an IR laser, white light, and controls with minimal changes to grip.

AIMPOINT MICRO T-2
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better... Aimpoint incorporated a significant technical breakthrough into their new Micro T-2- it is virtually parallax free. Aimpoint sights have always outperformed every other sight on the market in terms of parallax. The Micro T-2 takes this to another level. This can be critically important when you're forced to shoot from unorthodox positions. Other improvements exclusive to the T-2 include a cleaner, more perfectly round dot, flip-up lens covers, and protected adjustment turrets. The T-2 is currently only available with a 2 MOA dot.
