Pm, the item you want goes by the moniker: Any further and you might damage it. Gean ’em after every doy’s firing if you can.
This cover’s an aid to PM, but it’ll never replace the cleaning and lubing you’ll always have to do regularly. This may not have anything directly to do with blowing up your shooter, but it could keep it from firing — which is the next worst thing. This could cause corrosion of the extension and rusting of the action spring — or it might result in a short recoil of the bolt carrier group, thereby preventing the bolt assembly from retraaing far enough to strip a cartridge from the pamm.
Make sure the printing on the floor plate is on the outside. Tap upward on the magazine to make sure it’s seated right. First thing you know, the pins fall out and get lost — or the parts they hold won’t line up right and your firing’s ‘way oflf.
Double check ’em every day, at least. From 17 to 20’s fine, but 2rs too many when you’re loading cartridges in the magazine of your M16A1 rifle.
Sec- ond, he’s liable to let water seep into the lower receiver extension. The others get 2 located just to the right of the driver. The carrier key bends pretty easy — and then won’t line up inside the weapon. The only part of the mflgazine that gets any lube is the spring — and it gets only a very light touch of ISA. Then stick the corrier body into the receiver slide- way and push the carrier back and forth slowly to check that the corrier key and gas tube line up OK.
First, he’s robbing it of the lube protection it needs. Quick-rip the bag off with one steady yank. Let DS fix ’em. So it deserves reasonable treatment — especially in cleaning and lubing its lower receiver area. This bolt has a great service record so tar, but it pays to be on the lookout for that first sign of weakness.
If dirt and crud coUea under the extractor, the claw won’t be able to snap over the rim of a cartridge case. All components of the lower receiver — as well as the bolt carrier group — must wear a coat of LSA at all times.
Remember not to lose, damage or separate them. Here’ re some ideas that might help: But the real harm comes when you don’t do anything about it after your stuff gets wet. Now you can understand why TM with Ch 1, does not authorize disassembly of the lower receiver group for cleaning by riflemen and armorers. The big trick to using LSA is to get plenty of it on the working parts — like those inside the upper and lower receivers — and very light doses in other places — like the bore and chamber, inside the carrier key, inside the bolt and on the firing pin and the magazine spring — and none at all on your ammo or on the inside of your magazine.
No sweat adjusting the catch’ the way you want it, either. Then dry it out good with a swab or rag or even your shirtail in a pwm. Yeah, this Shorty’s pretty much like the MI6AI — it’s just shorter in the barrel and hand guards, has an adjustable butt stock 7750-30 a combination noise and flash suppressor.
You only use these new plastic protective caps FSN when you’re in action.
Next hit the forward assist and again pull the trigger. A pipe cleaner’s about the handiest thing for keeping this hole clear. And moke sure the floor plate goes under all 4 tabs, too.
Then scrub oil the ports like there’s no tomorrow to get off all the dirt and carbon you cor 4. The lower receiver’s made of alu- minum to keep the weapon light- weight. Separate the upper and lower receivers. Use your chamber cleaning brush FSN or any standard 750–30 brush like theor cal or 7.
For cleaning 570-30 disassembled mag — Either dunk it in rifle bore cleaner and shake it good while submerged OR — scrub the inside with a brush soaked with cleaner OR — Use a rag soaked in pzm cleaner.
If it won’t go all the way without a struggle, you’ve got some more cleaning to do. And still one more: Instead, slide the rounds out straight ahead. Anybody who bathes his rifle is do- ing it dirt two ways: II Push the buffer assembly in about Va inch, press in on the buffer retainer, then release the guide. Point the arrow to SAFE. Brackish water — that’s another story. But, on all 7550-30 trucks, you install a pair of brackets right up front, The Misi gets one to the left 750-300 the driver and the other to the right of the passenger.
Then the receivers will close without any interference. Use another pipe deoner — or air-dry it by waving it around — to dry the tube as well OS you con. Same idea goes when you’re running patches through. Truth is, you are not authorized to remove the lower receiver’s parts at all.
If you jam the receivers closed while the selector’s in the AUTO position, 705-30 force the automatic sear down and damage the automatic sear, ad the sear pin, and will likely rough up the bottom of the bolt carrier. This mag is coated with dry lubricant.
