Default Care of M1A

Happy 4th!
I just ordered an M1A National Match. It will be my first gas operated firearm. I was ordering a spare magazine and noticed listings of numerous parts and tools. Combo tool, gas cylinder tool, belt roller greaser, etc. ?????
I have everything for cleaning all kinds of firearms. None gas operated. What do I need to keep the new arrival in tip top operating shape?

Congrats!!!! And welcome aboard. First post and a SM.

There are several "M14 specific" tools you may want, but don't really need.

Castle nut pliers to help you remove and reinstall the flash hider/muzzle break.

Combo wrench to remove the gas plug, though any 3/8" wrench will work.

A good torque wrench to get your gas plug reinstalled the same every time.

Gas cylinder wrench.

An empty .30-06 or .270 shell casing will let you replace extractors, but you can buy a bolt disassembly tool if you want to.

Thanks! I was worried that I would need a new tool box for 1 rifle.
This is a great website, so much info and friendly.
