Why did Colt and the U.S. govt. decide to CHROME line thier M-16s to provide durability and make them easier to clean if its softer and prone to wear?
it was done to stop rusting when you didnt have time to clean the gun in combat conditions..
I would have sold him a bridge in Brooklyn myself.

The Springfield XD, Forged steel Slide, Bruniral coated matte black for rust protection, hight strength steel barrel. It likes almost all ammo. I know this can easily fire 300 rounds before cleaning.
The Bursa, Aluminum alloy frame. it is not going to rust. Polymer grips, they don't rust. High strength steel barrel, slide matte, blued or nickle for rust protection. Normally a reliable pistol. The Ecuador Army uses it in the jungles.
The Remington 870 express. You either love it or you hate it. More than 10 million have been built. I hear how they often jamb. But due to do to what? I also hear from some hunters who say that they seldom clean theirs. The jambing problems can sometimes be solved by trying different shells.
All of your guns are built to be carried in the rain and or humid conditions. Use clean, dry ammo and high quality shells and your firearms should all be able to take at least 200 or more rounds between cleaning. When you do clean, don't over oil.

I can't believe what I'm hearing!
A clean rifle is a happy rifle. You are not going to wear out your rifle by cleaning it unless you push through steel wool or scotch brite patches (if such a critter exists). Take care of your rifle and it will take care of you.
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
You might have approached this situation like this, "hey I couldn't't help over hear you were giving some steel cased Wolf ammo with that AR. I thought you couldn' use steel cased because, etc., etc.". It's less adversarial and the counter guy may not be aware of the problem. Just my $0.02 worth.
