I want to thank QUIB for allowing me to post his work here. We have a lot of repeat questions on this subject.



Having seen the question fielded numerous times over the years regarding lubrication guidance for those new to the AR15, I have attempted to clear up the question of lubrication points on the AR15 by compiling that information outlined in the Army -10 Operators Manual, into the following three Lubrication Charts.

This is a very helpful thread for someone like me who is new to the M4. For lubrication, I have been told that Rem Oil is very good and that is what I have been using. Any thoughts on this?

Saw this the other day and used it as a guide tonight, first time cleaning and lubing the BCG. Thanks for the useful diagrams!

Thanks to Quib for the OUTSTANDING pictogram.

I used the above diagaram to lube the one chrome bolt that I have for one of my two AR15's. I lubed it with Rem Oil.

I now have to clean my second AR15 which does NOT have a chrome bolt. Someday it will.

Very helpful post. Is this just for regular maintenance or also initial lubrication during the build process? Thanks!

Stupid question, (i know there are no such things)

However, how often are you hitting the lube points? Currently I am solely utilizing breakfree and have just under 1000 rds through my AR......

Ussually after every cleaning. If you are going to range with plans to go thru 300 rds or more, go ahead and lube per diagram.
You milage may vary, but this is what works for me.

Guys if you're going to shoot it, a few drops of lube won't hurt. A little lube prevents many problems cause by lack of cleaning.

There are plenty of people here posting how many rounds their rifle runs without lube and cleaning. That's all really impressive but why subject your rifle to that kind of abuse?

Clean it, lube it frequently and it will not fail you. IF you are in a world of shit and cannot find lube, ANY lube will do, running it dry will only lead to pre-mature wear and tear.
So why do it deliberately?

Follow the above manual, and always lube, if you can't clean, lube.

You guys are welcome.

Sorry, at the time I put those charts together I did not realize how popular they would become, so I never saved them in a format larger than what you'll find on-line.

Another idea besides printing them out in poster size, might be laminating them in a size suitable for storage in a field box or cleaning kit. Punch a hole in one corner of each card and run them onto a small key ring.

I saved and printed them out for my kids to each have a copy of their own. Think I'll get them laminated first though.

Thank you very much! It is very much appreciated!
