Also all Iv heard about DD is that they are one of the better guns on the market. Is there anything else as far as weak links on the gun that I should upgrade? I want this thing to be as reliable as possible.
You actual bought of of the best rifles out there it needs nothing at all except a good lubricant. I use mobil one but slp2000, miltec and frog lube are good to go as well. CLP is the old standard but it has been improved upon a lot. Dont skimp on the lube either ARs are made to run wet.
For scopes you have a lot of options. It depends if you want to dial your turrets or not. NF compact is very popular, Horus vision talon/blackbird, SWFA 1-4, 1-6, S&B short dot 1-4, 1-8, IOR, Leupold Mk6 (just comming out), leupold Mk4 1.5-5 spr, Vortex Viper PST
1-6, HD model is 1-6, Trijicon accupoint, US optics (toughest scope out there but its heavy), Premere recticals has a 1-8, Bushnell HDMR 1-6, Swarovski Z6 1-6. Meopta 1-4.
Dont for get you can add a 3x magnifiyer to an aimpoint or and eotech.
When you get to 5k plus rounds you may want to replace the extractor or at least buy and extra one for when it does. I have a parts kit that has extraxtors and springs, firing pins, and a few extra bolts cause they will can break. But on a gun in as high a quality as you got I would not expect anything out of the ordanary. Extraxtors at arounf 5k bolts at 15k.
