A magnifier is an optic “mounted behind a red dot, holographic, or other non-magnified sights.” It “provides increased magnification to a shooter’s view when they are engaged.” These are great for shooting close and then quickly adding magnification to shoot at distant targets in competition or combat scenarios.

Control Enhancements


Your gun’s accuracy will greatly depend on its barrel. That’s why a lot of gun enthusiasts upgrade their firearm’s barrel. The longer the barrel, the greater the muzzle velocity and the more accurate the rifle is. But note that firearms with longer barrels are heavier and harder to maneuver. It means you’d have difficulty maneuvering your rifle due to extra length and weight, especially if you have short arms or when shooting in tight conditions.

If you’re building a custom .300 BLK, this is a good place to start:


Upgrading your gun’s trigger will enhance your accuracy because a clean and fast-action trigger results in less flinching and better sight alignment.


Magpul MOE AR-15 pistol grip

A pistol grip allows you to “manipulate the trigger and magazine release with only the index finger, while using the thumb to control the safety or selector switch, all without needing to remove the palm from the grip.” Most pistol grips are textured. They provide additional grip and control especially when your palms get sweaty. This can be an issue (or not) depending on your preference. Some shooters prefer a more textured grip, while others are fine with less aggressive texturing as long as it gives them a steady grip.

Ambidextrous Safeties

An ambidextrous safety is designed so that you can operate the gun using your non-dominant hand in case your dominant hand can’t.

Ambidextrous Mag Releases

An ambidextrous magazine release allows both left and right-handed shooters quick and easy magazine release (and reload) using their non-firing arm and without removing their aim from the target. They give you flexibility in how you manipulate the weapon for a variety of scenarios.

Muzzle Devices


Oculus suppressor

A suppressor “is a device that attaches to the gun barrel to reduce the noise from the gunshot. When a gun is fired, the bullet leaves the chamber and travels through the barrel; it instantly uncorks thousands of pounds per square inch (PSI) of gas pressure behind it.”

One of our favorites is the Rugged Oculus 22 because it’s very quiet, especially with subsonic ammo. Click on the article link for a more detailed review plus steps on how to purchase and maintain a suppressor.

Muzzle Brake

miculek compensator

A muzzle brake is also called a recoil compensator. It’s part of the muzzle or the barrel that’s responsible for redirecting “a portion of propellant gasses to counter recoil and unwanted muzzle rise.”

Flash Hider

A flash hider or flash suppressor is a device connected to the gun’s muzzle. It reduces the “visible signature while firing by cooling or dispersing the burning gasses that exit the muzzle, a phenomenon typical of carbine-length weapons.”

Striker Control Device

A Striker Control Device is a hinge-like “device that lets you know when the striker of your Glock is moving.” Langdon Tactical Technology, Inc. describes it as a “cover plate for your Glock pistol that blocks the rearward motion of the striker when thumb pressure is applied to the back of the slide – similar to a hammer on a DA/SA hammer fired pistol.”

In short, it’s a safety device to make sure you don’t shoot yourself in the leg when holstering and unholstering your pistol!

Shell Holders

Shell holders are used for storing several additional rounds of ammunition at a convenient place on your gun for quicker reloading and follow-up shots. They can be mounted on the rear of the stock or on guns with accessory rails. 


Along with getting a powerful scope, mounting your rifle on a durable and stable bipod will exponentially increase your accuracy when shooting. These are really popular for long-range shooting and competitions.

Here are two of our best bipod reviews:

Target Acquisition

Laser Lights

Laser lights help in quickly locating your target, especially in low-light conditions. Laser lights come in green, white, and red. But some brands have multiple LED modules (red, green, and white) that are interchangeable depending on the shooting application. 

Both red and green light are better than white light when it comes to hunting applications. But some hunters still prefer to use it. White light is also best for people in law enforcement and filming at night.

As helpful as these accessories are, remember that buying them all at once is not mandatory. If you can, then that’s nice! But if not, prioritize the ones you need most, then buy the less important accessories next time – like what they say, baby steps. And before you know it, you’d already be fully equipped with all the necessary shooting and gun accessories.
