I wasnt used to the red dot adjustments as they must be 1/2" MOA as I was adjusting for 1/4" like my scopes because I over shot my adjustments the first few times until I figured it out . try first then read instructions later kinda deal

Oh and I replaced all my followers to the magpul ones thats why I was asking about lube sure seemd like there wasnt anything in them

If the rounds and followers don't hang up I wouldn't worry much about it. If the mags are old GI surplus from the sandbox that might be a problem.

I guess what surprised me more than anything was the trigger pull , everyone talks about heavy trigger pull on most AR's I didnt take anything to check it but Im going to say it wasnt any more than 4# at most which is perfect for this type of firearm .
I prefer a 2-3# trigger on my long target rifles . but the 4# was butter smooth no catchs, no gritty feeling , just smooth
Anyway I had a blast and Im ready to go again , however it could get expensive going thru ammo . . I have a business meeting today so while Im in town Im going to pick up a 500 rd case , the Tula ammo seemed pretty decent and didnt seem as if it had any lesser oomph than the remington or federal ammo I have been shooting , Next time I go out I will take my Chronograph and check them all
I would like to thank all you guy for all the help you have been to me and giving me the balls to go ahead and go through with my purchase , My FFL dealer sure seemed to like it and I went ahead and ordered a stripped lower from them to start another project as I get the money to build my first
