I assembled an AR15 for an acquaintance I know. He is rather negligent in the cleaning department. Last Saturday his claim was 1600 + rounds and he has not even pulled a bore snake through this beast. I watched as he spit another 200 rounds out without a FTF or a FTE. Sad but, true.

Seems a lot of people beating up on the AR lately in the news, so it's good to hear that some rifles actually work![:D]

Yeah, I have seen a lot of this stuff too.

Oh lord here we go. Who'll be the first to bring up their AK. [BD] I'm really happy tonight because I found a cool cheek rest from cheaper than dirt for my AK. Now my Kobra lines up perfectly with my cheek weld. Soooo happy. Nothing can ruin it.

My brothers MAK90 doesnt work.

My AR hasn't been cleaned in 1000 rounds or so. Little bit of South African but mostly Lake City XM193. No problems whatsoever. My AK74 has never given me problems! It's never been cleaned or anything and I got it back in February.... Of course it's still in kit form and hasn't been built yet! [;D]

I dunno maybe 20,000 rounds thru my ARs never had a failure except a loose gas key once. My ugly Maadi is reliable but has had FTE about 8 or 9 times,when the casing gets lodged in between the trigger mech and the receiver....Very annoying to clear.

I know my CMMG M4 upper has had a good 800 +/- rounds through it and not one FTE or FTF.

After using CLPs and only US GI 30 round magazines, I haven't had a single malfuction except a failture to fire. (firing pin did strike primer but somehow it didn't fire) But then again, I haven't done any real test of my ARs. The most round I've put in my AR without single cleaning was 220 rounds. (in part because I like cleaning my AR) However it didn't fail me over one foot of snow and freezing weather so I think it should be okay.

It wasn't me. I, like just about everyone else on this board, can shoot .1 MOA @ 2000 yards, without sights, with birdshot, through my 12 gauge coach gun.
