Congrats on the new rifle -- I'm sure BRD will kick in soon...
Here's a link to fieldstrip: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_3_7/456002_Field_stripping_the_AR15__massive_pics_.htm l
Here's a link for lube points: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_3_7/548967_AR15_LUBE_POINTS.html

Clean that thing and lets go shoot it! PM me, I've got a new upper and scope that needs zeroing -- maybe we can arrange to meet at Angeles Shooting Range.

Don't be worried about messing it up, the design is very simple and straightforward. Once you get it into pieces you will see.

ARs aren't fragile little toys, they are solid rifles. Find a good field stripping guide, oil it up, put it back together and hit the range.

Boresnake 2-4 times, wipe off the bolt/carrier assembly with a rag, re-lube correctly, and shoot it.

The rifle ain't no sissy gun that needs a scrubbing of all the little bitty parts. Just wipe off the gunk, and lightly lube before shooting.

So I shouldn't feel bad, because that's exactly how I clean my rifles(AR-15).

I will do a thorough strip and clean twice a year, especially on guns I don't shoot as much.

Is running the pins on the trigger/hammer without lube an issue? I have a piston AR so carbon fouling isn't an issue... and I am not a rambo style shooter so thousands of rounds per trip to the range NEVER happens.

EDIT: I also am running the Spike's Enahnced LPK (Nickel boron coating)
