Taking the plunge in the world of AR, of course I had to be difficult so I'm building my first from a stripped lower on up. There are several places I've found 'lower assembly' directions, but either they don't mention lubrication or they do and I'm just being dense and not seeing it. Is it one of those 'everyone knows you oil X, Y, Z and grease A, B, C', or is it actually ment to go together dry?

I use CLP for the most part for cleaning and lube of the lower..... however, I like to use a *very light* amount of moly grease on the following parts during initial assembly:

hammer and trigger sear engagement surfaces
hammer and trigger pin holes
hammer and trigger pins
safety selector (receiver surface and the detent surface)
pivot and takedown pins and detent grooves

That being said.... it really wont make a lot of difference. CLP is all thats necessary.

I prefer jellybeans.

Offshore: are those mil-spec jellybeans or do you prefer the ANSI standard?

Thanks for the tips everyone. Somehow I had a feeling it was one of those 'well of course you...'

Brownells action lube works well and is synthetic so no problems or issues with it washing off grey paste configuration and works well.
