    Slip 2000 EWL or Frog Lube. Anything will work but these are 2 of the best. Just keep it wet, which is more important than clean.

    Yeah, I've been using Frog Lube for a while now. It holds up to auto fire pretty well, I'm sure it will be the same with an AR. I've never had a problem. I've never used Slip, but know a few who do- they seem to like it.

    I do like gunzilla, it has served me well.

    However, CLP also does the job just fine. For a high round count range, we would just take a spray bottle of CLP, and give it a spray or two on the bolt. It generally worked pretty well. Like Jon said, keeping them really wet tends to be more important than how dirty it is.

    I have seen M-16s on the range that were having mulfunctions, a spray or two of CLP, and they were ready to keep on trucking for a few hundred more rounds.

    The most important place to lube is obviously on the BCG. I'm sure you know about making sure you can flick out the bolt with a flick of your wrist.

    Ehh, OK, nothing earth shattering with lube... How about a rifle bag. What do ya got?

    I've been using a bagmaster for about 10 years now. I might pick something a little more sleek and compact up for this AR. I'm open, I havent shopped rifle bags or cases in a long time.

    with our package deal at the dept, we get a Blackhawk soft case, water resistant, padded, 4 mag pouches, one main zipper pouch, padded shoulder strap, unzip and fold flat for shooting mat if you're in a pinch
    BLACKHAWK! Rifle Case - BLACKHAWK!
    I know we didn't pay $99 as listed on the site, I think it was $65
    I've liked it so far, after a year of in/out of patrol car, a little sloshing around in the trunk at times , range trips, etc it shows zero wear

    EDIT - this Blackhawk cases are nice too like 64zebra posted. I have one very similar to that and I like how it has the mags on the front and it's contoured as well on the one side which makes it nice for sliding into a trunk.


    Tactical Tailor makes some of the nicest single or double rifle bags. Of course Pelican for the hard case if you want extra security or you fly. I have all kinds of bags around from Eagle to UTG and the UTG SUCKS. I bought two for really cheap and they literally started falling apart after using them for nothing more than storage.

    Blue Force Gear also has some nice stuff. Of course all the bags are available in different color combinations.

    They offer a 28" and a 35" model.

    28 - http://www.blueforcegear.com/product...t-Case-28.html

    35 - http://www.blueforcegear.com/product...t-Case-35.html

    Some good stuff on LaRue's webstore as well - http://www.laruetactical.com/gun-cases

    This is the bagmaster I've been using for a long time; I'll probably stick with it unless there is just something else awesome out there that I'm missing.

    You'll keep this in the patrol car when at work correct? If so, where and how will it be set up?

    If I remember correctly you said you are in a non uniform role now? You might also check Sneaky Bags. They make a rifle bag that looks like a gym bag. People who have the Sneaky line seem to love them.

No matter what changes internally, the battery compartments has always been at risk of failure and can be affected by recoil. Only now with the horizontal battery compartment of the EXPS is that problem solved. Not that we're constantly viewing through the optic, but if we need to make a precision shot at distance on a target that's not paper and heavily contrasting colors, it can be a slight issue for some. EoTech now offers a single dot reticle.

    This is not to say they're junk, but when we're talking similar money, mine will always go to the one that's more robust and more reliable. Check out the Daniel Defense/Vickers M4 and Aimpoint T1 torture test.

    Yes and no, I flip back and forth. And it will end up in trunk of a whatever vehicle I'm in, so I do need at least some level of protection. During normal patrol duties, it will be in a vault.

    Bags I can't really help you with.

    But if you like the one you got, keep using it for a bit. Give your kids some extra stuff in their stockings.
