Well, I finally succumbed to Black Rifle Disease. I've got a Rock River Arms Elite on the way. This is my first Black Rifle; actually it's my first rifle. What is necessary to keep the AR running, besides a cleaning kit?
Lots of ammo

Bushmaster sells some nice spare parts and "survival" kits already packaged and ready to go that would be nice to have too... check out their site. I am eventually going to set mine up with the gear I'd need to head to the hills with it.
I'll try to remember to post the links to what I'm interested in later.
I'd use a Boresnake, not a cleaning rod. The rods can scratch the rifling and eventually degrade accuracy. Boresnake, RemOil, AR cleaning brush or old toothbrush, Q-Tips. Thats all I need for my GLOCK.
a chamber brush to clean the locking lug area, other than that , just ammo. i use a alum. cleaning rod so no scratch concerns. I don't think the bore snake cleaners work well enough. Don't use the military cleaning rod set though , its steel for better durability.
I have had my AR for over a year, put about 1500 rnds thru it without replacing any parts. (that went bad anyways) lots of accesories were added though
You'll like that rifle..............it's a great lookin piece...........Originally Posted by DirksterG30
Bushnell makes an electronic sight, with variable recticles for about between 75 and 100 bucks..............would work VERY WELL on the top of that fine rifle.
........... orrrrrrrrrrrrr a nice ACOG system would be good too..
tho they're running about 850.00... 525.00 used (we got a couple) http://elitetacticalsources.com/Trijicon_Scopes.htm
Why Waltz when you can Rock-N-Roll
Other than the cleaning kit and chamber brush not much i got 10k though my bushmaster and haven't had to replace a part yet
Class 3, thanks for the links. I'm leaning more to an Aimpoint ML2/ML3 or an Eotech 512. Got any of those used?Originally Posted by CLASS3NH
Them bushnell's are a good red dot .. course the one i had came apart on my casull but that was after 2 years so i cant say much .. Recoil was pulling it though the rings even though they were as tight as possible
It also still works im going to Glue it back together and put it on my 22
More mags and plenty of ammo.
You might consider a sling too. I prefer the single point attatchment slings.
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast, fast is deadly.
