First cleaning before heading to the range
Just disassembled my AR-556 for an initial clean before going to the range tomorrow. It seems to have an excess of oil and am thinking this is too much and just there to prevent corrosion and to let the oil penetrate. I followed the excellent Ruger videos on youtube on disassembly and cleaning. He states that only a LIGHT coat of oil is needed. How much is the sweet spot? Just so you can see it, but not puddles of oil anywhere? I had taken it over to a friends that has had military training when I first got it and fired about 100 rounds before it was disassembled. I didn't realize how much oil was in it. Glad we didn't fire more before cleaning.
