Colt, BCM, LMT should be good. They're all pretty much the same, I would just buy one from a company known for quality.

Just don't do what I did and get one at the gun show for $30. I cant get a zero on this thing to save my life.

You can find good carry handles in the Marketplace usually for around 60 bucks.

When you are shopping for one be sure to get the one that works with the correct gas block front sight height. Do a search for that info on Calguns. Also, some carry handles were made for the carbine rifle not rifle length so you'll need to know that too.

It'e easier to just a get a foldingTroy BUIS or fixed Daniel Defense 1.5 rear sight in my opinion.

Watch out for those cheap Chinese ones, crappy builds and not mil-spec materials, usually those low price ones under $40.
