What kind is it? Chrome lined, don't bother with a brake in. Also just use synthetic motor oil as lube, I use mobile 1, one quart will last a long time. Make sure you gas key and butt stock are properly staked.

It's a bushmaster carbine. I know it's not top of the line, but its all I could get before the ban maybe. I am looking forward to shooting it as soon as I find ammo lol. Thanx for all the good advice soo far.

You may be pleasantly surprised. I have a Bushmaster plain Jane carbine that shoots .5MOA at 100 yards with cheap Remington 55gr factory ammo.

Thanx guys, that makes me feel better about my purchase. I didn't mean to say "just", but I see a lot on here have custom rigs.

Re: New to AR world

Some good intel for ya! Oh, and you might want to read my article on ARs on this web site. Titled. "The AR comes of age". You'll have to look for it as it was published a while ago.There's some ,I believe, good advise on mounting a scope in it. And believe me, ARs are very accurate! I just shot my AR10 in 260 Rem. yesterday in a wind storm. Didn't matter; those 142 Sierras cut right through it. I was honestly amazed at the results. Two from the prone went .774 and .603; the two from the bench went .231 and .205 !Benchrest guns can do better than ARs, sometimes, but they ain't half as much fun !
