    I need to know if the pew is worth the money to buy. And what does it do.

    A PEQ? It does one of three things. Some are made to hold a battery. So if you can't put a battery anywhere else in your gun, you can put one in a PEQ. Some are made to somewhat mimic the function of a real PEQ unit, so they have a light, a laser, or both. A real PEQ is a complex and sophisticated visible and IR aiming device. Airsoft versions usually have a laser and/or a flash light. The third thing they can do is look pretty and nothing else. I have a non-functioning PEQ on my M4 because it was dirt cheap and makes my gun look more like what's issued to US soldiers in Afghanistan.

    I tend to buy stuff like this used. I got one for like, $10 and the other for free from a friend. If you search the classified sections they come up a lot. If you buy new and you just want one entirely for looks, buy a battery box that doesn't include the battery. It's just a plastic shell, so it's the cheapest way to get one.

    For example:

    $14 shipped.

    A) Black isn't issued. Every PEQ 15 sent out is FDE.

    B) A real PEQ 15 doesn't have a flash light, so you absolutely would mount an M3x or similar torch along with a PEQ 15. Just ask this gentleman:

    The question you are asking is personal prefrance. Some people like Acogs while others like EoTech or aimpoints or an actual scope. Basically go for whatever YOU like the best.

    As far as the PEQ box goes Knief hit the nail on the head.

    On Amazon there's one on there for like 47 bucks red dot and led light with pressure pad. I think it's a nice deal
