It looks to me like it would be difficult to clean mud, blood, feces, plant matter, sand, etc. from the barrel and the inside of a free-float RAS type handguard. I'm wondering because I can recall cleaning all this and more from M-16A1s. Hot barrels and organic matter don't mix. And what about rifle inspections? Do any of you modern grunts have experience in handling this? How do you get around the free-float mounting system and the heat shields involved in some units?
