Congrats! Haven't gotten the AR bug yet myself, but I'm slowly coming around on the idea. Post a range report when you get to send some lead downrange, and yes we need pics !
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Oooooooh one of those evil black rifles. Congratulations.

i went and shot it saturday the day after i got it.i shot 80 rounds through it some winchester and some tulammo. didnt wana shoot steel through it but i couldnt find anything else. i loved it and it shot great, thats the second time ive shot an AR. the iron sights were actually pretty accurate. was shooting at targets at about 25 30 yards and it was doing good. the more i shoot it the better my shot placements will get though.
The main question is generally WILL your particular AR handle steel cased. From what you say, yours did well with it. So consider yourself very lucky, if so. You will save a fortune if thats the case.
Clean it well removing the factory grease and then oil it very heavy where the steel rubs on the steel, bolt carrier etc and it should run just fine.
One of the problems most new owners of AR run into is trying to fire it without removing the factory packing grease.
The rifle will jam and you will want to get rid of a good rifle that just needs cleaning.
If the bolt carrier even fills the least bit sticky clean it with Hoppers #9 solvent, and oil it with gun oil.
Great rifle shoot it and enjoy it!!!!!

I love only that which they defend.
