    Okay, got a S&W 5.45 M&P15 w/ TNW Piston kit and some other goodies.

    I have only owned AK's

    Any manuals or videos on AR's for dummies? Also for piston cleaning and maintanence

    Thanks. Coming from all ak's, the AR world is pretty amazing. It's like going from fuel injection to carburetor

    Oh, I dunno. I don't know what all the hoopla is all about. I live in the boonies and I've been well protected for many years with an AK47.:supergrin:

    only difference between an ar and an ak is you have to clean the ar, the link below is pretty good. i have no idea on the piston, i don't like conversions anways

    Hey newbie, I believe half of what I hear and half of what I read. There could be 16 yr old snot-nosed kids on M4Carbine.net as well. Please.:upeyes:

    Oh wait.....how does GlockTalk meet your expectations? Comments? Didn't think so.
