What are some good things to do to the rifle as it's being assembled
and right after it's been assembled? So far I can only think of the
following:

during assembly:
clean barrel real good with clp

after assembly:
sight it in/break in the barrel
oil the stock

If anybody else has any suggestions, they'd be very welcome. Thanks in
advance.

Hmmmmm. Oiling the stock might be good for preserving a wooden stock, but oiling the plastic stock on an AR will make a real slimy mess. Shooting it might be kinda like catching a greased pig I suppose.

Yeah! And if you mean oiling the buffer tube/spring, DON'T. It is supposed to run try soes you don't get grime build up in there.

Many buttstocks need a good coat of oil or Armorall to make them black/really dark grey. Don't worry about the slime, it soaks right in. [url=users.zoominternet.net/~pcfitz]P.I.G.S.[/url]
