As of now, 15 topics below yours is one that covers this exactly called "How oiled should it be".

With a new AR, the amount of lube will be the same, the only suggestion I would have is clean/lube the action more frequently (not the barrel necessarily, especially if it's chrome lined) as the parts will be wearing into each other and you will be getting some small shavings.

I saw that. I just wanted to know if there was anything I would need to do differently with a completely dry, new rifle without hijacking the other thread.

if your rifle is bone dry from the factory, someone was not doing there job. Both My Colt and Bushmaster came oiled. assy lube that should be removed with a better oil.

1. read and understand how the rifle operates.
2. clean the rifle.
3. lube the rifle using clp or equilvent.
4. shot the rifle.
