Could someone take the time and update the links on page 1? There doesn't seem to be too many that are still working.

You skipped the very important part of "After removing the firing pin retaining pin, turn the bolt carrier on its rear to cause the firing pin to drop loose"

People depend on this manual!

Noob here.. First AR (Colt LE6920) inbound.

These pics and other linked info (lube guide) are a great resource for me.  

Thank you.

Very informative. Thanks for the advise.

thank you very much for this detailed disassembly.
it gave me the confidence to disassemble my S&W sport, their manual had b&w dim and cloudy pictures.

I'm new to the AR type rifle and found this thread wonderfully helpful. Thank you.

Seems like a lot of noobs here so I'll ask, I guess my 9mm just right carbine isn't truly an AR15.  Would you know if this field strip would work on it?

I have zero experience with 9mm versions, so I don't know. Sorry.

Kind of new here and wondering what I am doing wrong.
The only pic I see is the one with the bolt, and the firing pin being removed after key is pulled out.

Great write up!!!  I was hesitant to even take on the challenge until I came across this post.

Not having had anything to do with AR's since I left the USAF in 1978, I really appreciate this post. It's clear and concise with no clutter.

Thank you!

Thanks for the write up. Helped me learn my way around my new 6920 a lot faster. I did like the other guy and printed the pics fullsize, laminated them and put them in my cleaning box.

Great site guys

I know everyone has said it already, but I have to also "Thanks for the break down"!
Link Posted: 12/23/2012 8:37:29 PM EST
Mucho thanks. Now my first teardown and cleaning of my new to me M15 will go swimmingly with confidence in the orderly steps. Big value here. I owe you a beer or three if you are ever in Spokane.

Great job, thank you from an AR-Noob.

Brand new ar15 member and owner here and I read the post. Loved the pics with directions...

At the risk of getting voted off the island, any chance that a similar post can be done detailing how to reassemble the AR? especially the BCG etc?

Cheers
John

Wow, thank you for posting that video. I've had a couple friends tell me how easy it is to build a stripped lower, had no idea that it was that easy!

Great step X step guide. My question is that my rear take down pin does not just push out. Being new to the ar platform, how do I get it pushed out? The book says that on some models that there is a wedge between the upper and lower to stop any movement between the two. I have a Colt M4 5.56 brand new.

Thank you for any info.

Gently tap it out with a punch and hammer. Also, after it disengages from the lug on the upper receiver, it will be retained by the lower receiver.

Just used this for cleaning my BCG for the first time.  Was surprised how dirty it was after only about a hundred rounds!

One thing that wasn't clear in the pictures was which way the extractor needed to be pointed when you reinsert the bolt back into the carrier.  Maybe it only goes one way and I just guessed right but I wasn't sure until looking at pictures elsewhere of the BCG.

Of course thinking about it now, I also could have looked at the ARFCOM logo. :)

Nice job man. Helps alot.

Awesome photos.  Large and Easily Seen.
Your captions are the very best I have seen on ANY Internet Forum.
Clear and Concise.
I Build AR-15's and your step by step guide really is spot on.

That set of pictures will help me do my first tear down.
