My sport turn out to be very clean from the factory and well lubed but to stay with my normal thing to do with ever new firearm I took mine apart, cleaned and relubed with breakfree clp just to fully understand how the AR's work. From what I say, clean the barrel and go shoot yours.

I bought mine about six years ago it's a real nice shooting AR, just take it down and clean it a little with Breakfree CLP. nothing big, run a patch with BF/CLP through bore. Then take it out and shoot it.

Most all good rifles coming from the manufacturer will be well lubed. First of all so they will properly function if the proud owner takes them straight out of the box and shoots them. Also for shelf life protection against any corrosion should the rifle set on a shelf in a warehouse or at a dealers for a long period of time. I know Rock River Arms when the rifle gets back from the live fire test on the outdoor range, which everyone of them goes through. They are then cleaned while going through the rifle's final inspection, lubed with G-96 and packed in the box ready to go out the door! So it is common for good rifles like yours to be well lubricated. And while we are on it, you need to keep your bolt and carrier assembly always looking a little wet and you will not have any problem. A damp AR Rifle is a Happy AR Rifle!
Nice rifle and it looks like Old Santa was good to you! Give us some range reports when you get a chance.

Looks like you had a great Christmas.

My lube of choice is slip2000 or high temp lithium grease.

Strange as it might seem the AR needs very little inside lub. the bolt and cam a few drops on Fire group. Many people I know just spray some Breakfree CLP through the side opening and that's all. And many don't do any of the items I stated.

I like to keep mine pretty wet. This is one area were too much is better than too little.
