You need the URL of the photo itself, not the Flickr page it's posted on. I was able to see it by copy/pasting the URL. You might want to use Imageshack or something similar as a host, since other sites are set up for hosting photos for use on forums.

You probably won't hear of too many people using it here. FrogLube, SLIP 2000 (my preference), and even Fire Clean seem fairly popular hear, along with the basic stuff like CLP.

Congrats. Starting with a FINE AR.

My transfer FFL (hell of a nice guy) once said 'there is something special about a Colt AR. It just looks better". And he was right. I have several brands, home brew Stag, RRA, BCM, Bushmaster, and SW. And I have to say, there IS something special about a Colt AR.

Thanks everyone (and special thanks to Plank for suggesting tinypic). I plan to go punch more paper before my fantasy football drafts tomorrow!

OK, based on what you guys have said, I pulled my AR (Windham SRC) out of the case. Now what do I do with it? Anyone have any good storage ideas for a single long-rifle? My pistols are in a safe. Doesn't seem smart to pay $800+ for a gun safe for one rifle.

The brush is the easy part. You really need a dedicated short rod on a non-swiveling handle. Brownell's sells a Dewey rod for just this purpose for not a lot of dough and you can also purchase the chamber brushes from Brownells in bulk much cheaper than buying them individually as well. While you are at it buy a bag of 1,000 cleaning patches and save dough there.

Copy that, Big Bird. I also plan on getting some frog lube to try out. Just installed a hogue grip, Magpul ACS-L stock, and an "accurizing" wedge before going to the range this morning. Much better ergonomics than what came with the gun, and there are no more wiggles in the stock and lower/upper assembly -- which helps squelch my OCD!

Cirdan, check to see if you have open cell or closed cell foam in the case.

Simply leaving the case open, or adding desiccant packs will help.

I use the cheap mil-spec multi-piece rods for that. The chamber brush threads in nicely, and you lock the T-handle to the shaft, then run a different section through the hole to make a non-free-spinning handle for the brush. Works beautifully.

****can the accu-wedge. The play in the upper and lower has no effect on accuracy, but the extra tension caused by the wedge CAN egg out the holes in your upper or lower receiver over time.

Yeah...that's a solution too. Problem is the GI Cleaning rods run around $9-20 depending on where you get them and for that dough you can just get the dewey rod.

I've got a couple of those GI rods I managed to liberate during my service. But I never get around to digging them out of the old duffle bag.

I think I paid $8 for the last kit I got, including bore brush, nylon brush, patch loop and storage pouch.

Wedge is gone. Didn't buy it for the accuracy gimmick, just wanted to get rid of the wiggle.

The wiggle is something you get used to. Different upper and lower combos will have different levels of wiggle to them.

Indeed, it's nothing bad & I understand the purpose of not having a custom fit so its not really an issue!

Placed a bid for a Geissele SSA trigger. Fingers crossed!

Good luck with the bit! If you don't win it, I'd get one from bravocompanyusa, or directly from the Geissele website. Both have the SSA trigger in stock for $210, both sources ship very fast too. I have three Geissele suber combat, and one SSA. By far the best upgrade I have done to my AR's.

Lost it @ 195 -- not a spectacular deal anyway. I'll probably hold off now until next pay period and order one. Need more ammo now anyway I suppose -- starting to run low. You installed the triggers yourself?

The SSA pops up for sale around $175 pretty frequently. Keep an eye on PSA.
