Too little lube is something done by a lot of people
Very true. Run it wet.
But not too wet. Which is usually what happens. Too wet is just as bad as too dry.
Same goes for LocTite.
Nah. Do it Uncle Sam Style: a spray bottle full of Break-Free will fix any jam.
What problems will too wet cause?
I haven't yet personally experienced a single person having a single problem from too much lube on an AR type rifle. I don't recall reading about even one single person, from verifiable, reliable source, having a problem from too much lube on an AR.
At any rate, too little lube is FAR, FAR more likely to be a problem than too much. If somebody doesn't know how much to use, tell them to err on the side of too much/lots. The BCG is better off dripping wet than dry or even damp/moist.
A mess. Dont want that crap on my shiny new Multicams.
Ive always run my AR's at just above "dry", and never had any issues, even with continuous shooting. Then again, thats probably just a hold over from the old Dri Slide days.
I suppose if you were shooting a lot, and things were slowing down or gunking up, and you couldnt clean it, squirting extra lube into the works could keep things going for a little while, but all that extra lube in there in the first place, more likely contributed to the problem.
Then theres always cold weather.
You do however make a good point considering grease type lubricants in cold weather. The grease can harden up in the cold. This will inhibit the cycling of the AR.
I have yet to read anybody say this with any factual basis. People seem to just make it up and start saying it, just because.
i don't have any optics, but, i don't feel i need them. plain old never needs batteries carry handle sights work fine for me.
I think I'll replace my Aimpoint PRO with a Trijicon TR24G.
I always run my ARs dripping wet. After the first shot, I always keep a clean towel next to me to clean of my glasses. I have never had an issue with it.
Of course, I dont live in a windy desert either. I could see that as being a regional thing.
Is the PRO in good shape? I want to buy one....... DOC
It is in perfect shape.
Buuut it will probably go to my dad when I get the variable scope.
Keep your eye out for all manner of black friday and cyber monday sales. I'll bet they pop up somewhere. The PRO is an excellent optic. I just want a little more precision capability/target identification, and my astigmatism/whatever doesn't agree very well with the dot.
My astigmatism doesn't either have to be wearing my glasses in order for my red dot to be clear anymore.
Thanks, best of luck with the tritium!
Is that the one with the fiber optic window on top.
Yes. Fiber optic and tritium. 1-4x.
I would get the green triangle (TR24G) version.
I like the variable power 1X4. I dislike fixed power optics on my AR.
I started shooting iron sight when I was shooting Highpower. I have to have them on anything I buy from a 20" Hbar, to a M4 type Carbine. I know I hit a man sized target out to 600 yards with irons pretty easily.
