Caring for and Maintaining
YOUR OWN AR
Importance of Cleaning and Maintaining YouR AR
So you’ve bought your AR, shot your AR, gone through some boxes of ammo, and now you need to know how to clean and maintain your AR. Stage 2 of the AR Evolution is all about developing your AR knowledge when it comes to: cleaning, maintenance, ammo (sourcing & storage), and, of course, preparing to buy your next AR!
Our best advice is to get that new rifle and shoot it “as is” for a while. Learn the ins and outs of maintenance, cleaning, and areas for improvement. Watch some videos so you have an understanding of how the parts work and interface with each other. Try some of your buddies rifles that have already been upgraded.
At that point you can decide what you like and do not like so you can begin your upgrade process. Remember, you don’t have to be an expert to build or improve your AR. We are here to help with expert guidance and instructional videos!
