Got her out today ran about 100 + rounds thru it and I was pretty impressed with the accuracy of it , I had one FTF at about the 6th shot but Im using cheap Tula ammo and since everythings new , mags etc I kinda expected a glitch until everything gets broken in a little , after that little glitch everything ran smooth as butter . I have never shot with a red dot before so that was kinda new to me and I was alot more accurate at lower power it seemed to reduce the dot size or starburst as I will call it when on higher levels , I need the tool to lower my front pin down alot so I really didnt get it sighted in with the irons yet well , I tried but my 3 shot group was about 4" llow and 1" to the left , I took care of the left with the rear .

Use the tip of a round to lower the front sight post. Takes longer than using a tool, but you already have rounds...

Sounds like like a good time man

Working it out and getting it to run the way you want it is the fun part!

How'd you like the way she ran? Any observations?

don't waste your money on a specialized tool. just use an allen wrench and a pair of needle nose pliers to hold down the detent and turn the front sight post.

sounds like you're doing a lot of analyzing however u forgot 1 important thing how much fun did you have?

HAVOC,

Keep the entire Bolt Carrier Group & Bolt looking wet and you probably will not have any failures to feed. A lot of guys run their ARs too dry. Brand new rifles are more susceptible with needing a little more lube and especially at breaking! The Carriers need lube with a good lubricant and as stated should always look wet! NOT GREASE! Rock River uses G-96 exclusively for Lubrication on all their rifles. Also the Mobile One formula we have addressed here on the FTF Forum also works well! Obviously RRA does use a good solvent to clean with like Hoppes when cleaning after test firing at the plant. I do not believe in the one item does all approach! There are Cleaning Solvents and there are Lubricants.
Nice rifle as I stated before! Enjoy!

Ya a little lube coming out the seams is perfectly normal. So get her all wet and take her out again!

Reminds me of a boot camp episode. We were having a dress uniform inspection, and my buddy did inspection arms when the Lt Col stopped in front of him. It was beautiful and scary watching all that CLP splatter on the front of the CO's charlie uniform. And yes, the CO noticed. As did every one else, including the DIs, and they reminded us for about 3 hours straight.

I had one hell of a good time . I was really amazed how quickly I could get back on target and get another round off . I had he red dot sighted in after the 5th 3 round group . She was plenty wet ,I had Mobil One Synthetic 5-20 running down the right side of the receiver after the first couple shots , I did more than plenty of reading on cleaning and lubrication before I ever took it out mostly from your guys previous posts " Thank you very much " , I had it torn down after a couple hrs of being in awe over the damn thing , LOL, to make sure it was clean and lubed , I have copper bore cleaners , rem oil and mobil one 5-20 , the mobil one I keep a couple small bottle in those contact wetting drop bottles in my case ,
Thanks for the heads up on the front sight tool , Looks like I wont need one of those " Thanks again "
Im ready to get out there and do it again . its a hell of alot different than my bolt action gun although my bolt gun sure seems pretty conservative on ammo , I wonder why ? LOL

Heres one of my targets I used for sighting it in so ignore the dead center that was my last one sighting it in , low lefts and mid rights, those were all getting it sighted in I used it for my last 15 shot fast blast @50 yards thru the red dot , I have it zeroed at 100 , FUN FUN FUN !!!!!!!!!

Run good so far , I would like to say as it breaks it it will get smoother , but that one and only FTF wsa the only issue I had , the safety seemed a little harder than I liked but it was dry so I put a few drops of Mobil one on it and now its buttery smooth
Do the Mags require any kind of lube in them ?

No. The GI mags have a dry lube in them but otherwise leave the magazines alone for now.
