    Picked up a new Colt LE 6940 AR this evening.

    What are the must have items, as far as cleaning/maintenance?

    Would a bore snake be best for cleaning, or does a bore guide and Dewey type cleaning rod work better?

    Break Free best CLP, or Tetra, or some other?

    Is a standard .22 cal brush/bore snake a perfect fit, or do they even make 5.56 or .223 brushes?
