    I'm getting my new gun and was going to Get a PEQ box, but the top rail only has room for my reflex scope. Can it go on the side without messing it up?

    It can go on any side. Even underneath. Most people just run it on top too keep it balanced. I personally run PEQs if I have on the side of the RIS.

    Are you asking about a good brand for them or a nice style?

    an/peq-16 or an/peq-15 are nice styles and can get got rather cheap... look them up on amazon or ebay
    Element is a good cheap brand

    PEQ-16's are just ugly. 15's are nice looking. PEQ-2's are a little big for my preference. I'd say a PEQ-15 with a lipo.

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder or something like that.. I actually like the 16, its different. the 15 is the PEQ everyone knows though

    They're too small and weirdly shaped. That's what she said lol

    Which is your opinion. I actually like the look of PEQ2s. Planning to run one on my future build.

    See, and I think you should match your PEQ to the rest of your rifle based on which unit would most likely use it and when. 14.5" barrel with an LE stock, KAC 7" rail and an aimpoint? You need a PEQ2. MK18 mod1 with a Specter dr and FDE furniture, you need a PEQ15. Modern Marine kit with an M16A4? Get yourself a PEQ16.

    Because I like examples and pictures of pretty guns:

    You could also throw everyone for a loop and get a DBAL-I . I ran one of those on my M4 when I still had it. Mounted it on the top rail, too, now that I'm thinking about it.

    Personally, I run a PEQ15 on the side of my M4, keeps it out of the way of my reddot
