Just guessing, from what you describe, I think you're overcleaning. Field stripping normally is all you need, then gentle cleaning. There's absolutely no reason to completely tear down a gun every 2-3 field strips. Sounds like abuse.

The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
