I will just ask here since we don't have a gun spot and I annoy my friends with all my questions. I have an M&P-15 (Same gun Kyle Rittenhouse used). I have to go to return an item at this sick ass veteran store that has sweet gear. So I figured I'd buy something since it's a long drive there.

I was going to buy a charging handle, maybe. Everything else is super expensive and I just got a reckless driving charge, so I won't have too much to spend. Is there something I can do to the gun for a moderate amount of money to improve it? Trigger system? Bolt carrier? thanks

Better trigger is in your budget and probably the best bag for the buck. This LaRue is highly rated, under $100 and easy to swap in:

Eh, maybe it’ll help someone who genuinely wants to know. ?‍♂️

Upgraded trigger would be a better improvement vs charging handle. IMO ammo & mags are even better.

If you don't shoulder the butt tightly, you might get a bloody nose-the handle does kick back with the discharge. Other than that, no.

Practice breathing, much better than equipment. Exhale, hold, then squeeze off a round.

Ammo and training. That's it. Your gun can shoot better than you at this point. Get training. Tight on cash? Start saving.

Charging handles don’t matter too much. Upgrade the bolt carrier group, trigger or a decent magpul buttstock.

Why ? The "charging handing" on all semi-autos is basically to chamber the first round, and or clear a malfunction. So what is wrong with the one you already have ? Unless you are a competition, or long range shooter you don't need a target trigger, or expensive optics, and fancy add on lasers, and flashlights ( besides with a 16 " barrel you are limited on range, and accuracy anyhow). Good adjustable open sights are all you need for fast target acquisition. Buy a sling, some extra magazines, and ammo. KISS, Keep it simple stupid !

On the cheap, get mags.
