The tacked link to Maryland shooters group guide has been gone for a while. I have been unable to find a photo guide that was similar to the Maryland one, so I decided to make my own. Hopefully others will find this helpful.

Edit: I also figured some would like to know what is in this rifle, so I'm adding the specs.
Mega Machine Shop upper and lower receivers
Mega Machine Shop charging handle
RRA LPK
KNS Gen 2 anti-rotation pins
BCM BCG (pre-markings)
BCM receiver extension
Anvil Arms 14.5" M4 barrel w/ pinned Saylors Machine Phoenix flash hider
Magpul MOE buttstock
Magpul MOE handguards
Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard
Magpul MIAD pistol grip
Colt carrying handle and side sling adapter
Gear Sector GS-2P sling in pink!

TACK THIS NOW...but will the Noobs read it......best I have seen in a long time
Link Posted: 8/14/2009 4:07:38 PM EDT
With the exception of the buffer and spring, that is exactly how I learned at Ft. Benning back in the early 80's.
Link Posted: 8/14/2009 4:37:58 PM EDT
Nice job. Very well done. Definitely needs to be a sticky.
Link Posted: 8/14/2009 5:33:06 PM EDT
Great job!!! Nice pics!! I agree tac it.

Add more specific directions to the removal of the charging handle that it needs to be pulled down and out of the upper receiver once the charging handle lugs are lined up with the clearance cutouts in the upper receiver.
Link Posted: 8/14/2009 6:14:20 PM EDT
Now do the trigger group for us dumb folks

Good idea. I'll try to do that tomorrow if I find time.

Lol. There is already a pictoral guide in the BIY forum for LPK assembly. I guess if I have time, I can do the FCG.
Link Posted: 8/15/2009 11:35:49 AM EDT
Seriously....this needs to be stickied in BOLD and used as a reference tool. Its EXACTLY what to do to field stip and clean this rifle. Probably the best one I've seen in a while. Def going to site this on other websites if possible.
Link Posted: 8/15/2009 2:04:29 PM EDT
Edited to add the charging handle nubs thing.
Link Posted: 8/15/2009 2:47:03 PM EDT
Great post. Thanks for taking the time to put that together.
Link Posted: 8/15/2009 3:10:34 PM EDT
Tag.

I printed out a good portion of the Maryland AR15 How-to's and put them in a notebook. It's an excellent resource.

Too bad they shut the site down.

Agreed! straight to the point and very clear pictures. good job!
Link Posted: 8/16/2009 3:35:44 PM EDT
Excellent! More clear than all the manuals. Can you do one on barrel removal?

Thank You!

There is a thread in the BIY thread that covers re-barreling.

Nice set of photos. Good tutorial for noobies.

Great post. Excellent photos.

After 3 1/2 years on this forum this post has given me the information & mostly the the "How To" in a series of very clear, easy to understand photos to disassemble clean and reassemble my bolt carrier group. This to me is the best thing since sliced bread. Now all I need is something this simple on lubing an AR.

+ 1 on a great resource ...

Kudos to beavo451 for taking the time to put it together, and for sharing it with everyone.

Also, since you're a Team member you should be able to access THIS archived thread from several years ago in which bigbore demonstrates his simple lubing method. I thought it was very informative and quite helpful as well.

Awesome pictorial.............thanx!
Link Posted: 9/1/2009 7:29:39 PM EDT
i like it. nice pics and good looking gun. might point out lube points and check wear here now that it is tacked. the problem is the only guys that will not read this are the ones that need to. thread delivers.

Very nice talk about bad ass pics.

ETA. You should do a cleaning and lube series.
Link Posted: 9/8/2009 11:36:36 PM EDT
Nice, simple with great pictutres.
Thanks
Link Posted: 9/9/2009 7:30:55 PM EDT
Really clear how-to thread and great photos
Link Posted: 9/16/2009 2:55:58 PM EDT
Fantastic thread, great job OP, it is much appreciated!

If possible, big +1 on the "How to lube" idea already posted. I just bought my first AR Saturday, and I'm leery of cleaning it without some sort of guide.
Link Posted: 9/16/2009 3:11:21 PM EDT
I'm reluctant to do a lubrication guide because it seems to be a very personal and sensitive topic.

Still, a baseline for newbies would be great. You could document a "wet" (for non-dusty/sandy environment) and a "dry" (for sandbox) approach and refer to generic lubricants of use choice. Certainly nobody could complain too badly about showing the use of CLP/LP or even Mobil1 used in conservative and liberal amounts. The key would be the particular places to lube. Then the user could determine their preference for frequency and saturation level.

You could almost just annotate the existing pix with a different color text...

DON'T FEAR THE FLAMES!

Great work.

Thanks so much for this step by step guide. Now I don't have to keep asking my friend at the range.
Link Posted: 10/13/2009 3:18:46 AM EDT
Thanks, this is actually the reason I jumped into this site –– needed a good guide since I only fire my AR about once a year
Link Posted: 10/15/2009 1:21:09 PM EDT
Awesome! Best how to on disassembly I have seen on this site.

PLEASE< PLEASE do a how to on cleaning and lubrication. Basic stuff, for newbs like me.
Link Posted: 10/24/2009 7:31:15 AM EDT
Great photos!!

Your photos, combined with the earlier post including the link to lubing an AR, is a good start for a newbie like me.

Thanks,
Don

Very nice pics and guide!

As an added reference, the NRA has a field stripping article in the latest issue (November 2009) of American Rifleman. Maybe it will be a useful addition to beavo451's excellent work. If not, mods can delete this post.

+1 for a newbie like me a good starting point would be great... even if there are mix thoughts on how to do it...

Thank you again for such clear photos outlining this procedure. Excellent!!
