Congrats. Hopefully the price was okay, Bass Pro is usually pretty high on firearms prices, but even their old price would be pretty good today.

Sling swivels.

QD socket for the hand guard.

QD socket for the stock.


That's about $250 for a good sling and light setup.

It's sounds like a lot, but you'll never 'outgrow' that stuff and it's good kit.
I agree. Don't go hanging all kinds of stuff on the rifle until you get some ammo and get out there to shoot it, preferably with some training.

A sling and a light are the basics, optic optional and next on the list.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
