I bought a used M&P15T several months ago and love it. I've fed it Silver Bear and no feeding issues thus far. I really like this weapon.

You can have the bolt carrier out of the rifle in less than 1 minute. And have the bolt carrier group apart in less than one more. After that the parts clean up quite easily.

You can soak them, or toss them into an Ultrasonic Cleaner while you work on the upper, which cleans up really easily if you keep it wet with lube while you're shooting. After you get everything clean and dry, relube everything and reassemble it in just a couple of minutes and you're good to go. Compared to a Springfield M1-A, or even a Ruger Mini 14 it's a cake walk. About the only semi that is easier is the AK-47.

disassembly of the AR, i agree , is a breeze imo. but the bolt components & chamber are just CAKED with crud when i am done shooting. i am fairly anal about a clean gun, so i spend some serious time getting it squeaky clean.

i would disagree & say my imo my AR is MORE of a PITA to CLEAN (not disassemble) than my mini 14 (but the gas block area on the mini is a pain as well).

as for soaking/cleaning...every time i ask for advice on how to clean an AR, i get so many different answers, i am more confused than before i asked

however, i'm sure my problems have a bit to do with being an AR newbie. (and i will admit i never LOVE cleaning my guns)

That's why I bought a piston AR. IMHO the best of both worlds. I just have to hope the company stays in business for when I need parts lol😨

About the only thing I have found out is the wetter, (and I mean DRIPPING), you keep an AR, the less caked crud you'll be forced to deal with. If you shoot a lot of rapid fire, and get your gun very hot in the process, there isn't much you can do. It will be caked with crud no matter what. But if you shoot more slowly and use plenty of lube, I've found a minimal amount of crap adheres to the metal around the chamber area.

This stuff also works wonders.

check this out people you know Lucas oil products for cars.... well they make synthetic gun oil and I have been using it and it works really well and helps to keep the gun from getting really dirty! And me personally I like cleaning my AR better than my AK. the Ak is easy but so is the AR i guess its just personal preference. And too If I had a (world comes to and end) reason and had only one weapon I would take my AR over my AK. I know the AK is more battle proven but the AR is more accurate and has a longer range and it does not kick like a mule in heat! lol
