the thread about how to make your ar as reliable as it can be kind of got me thinking.i just bought my bushmaster and im looking at it as i make this thread and im thinking to myself,"is this gun going to function well in any type of condition or just slow fireing". so now i ask you if there is any upgrades that i can get for the gun that that make it function properly in no matter what condition, i.e. springs,trigger,and anything else that will make it function tha way i want it to.
secondly,is cleaning. I know there is various manufactures of gun oils but for this particular rifle and i want to know what your experiences are with them and which of them to you give good lubercation and consistencey. also what do you guys do with grease. i know that you guys put grease in some areas butyou oil others and i know that some of you just lightly grease you whole gun.
also whats the best place to find some good usgi mags with green followers.
The only thing that gives ARs problems is sandy conditions. But that true for almost all semis.
I use Hoppes #9 and mineral spirits, whichever is on hand & use Breakfree for lube. I never use grease on an AR.
