There are a few key things you’ll need to clean your AR-15 for the first time:

  • Gun Cleaning Solvent
  • Bore Brush
  • Gun Oil
  • Rag or Towel

1. Start by unloading your AR15 and verifying that it is unloaded. NEVER point a loaded gun at anything you’re not prepared to shoot.

2. Remove the barrel from the upper receiver and attach the bore brush. Use gun cleaning solvent to saturate the bristles of the brush, then scrub the inside of the barrel with steady pressure. Be sure to go all the way down the bore – you don’t want any built-up fouling left in there!

3. Once you’ve scrubbed the barrel, remove the bore brush and swab it out with a clean rag or towel. Next, apply gun oil to a clean patch and run it down the bore. This will help protect your barrel from rust and corrosion.

4. Finally, reassemble your AR15 and store it in a cool, dry place. That’s it – you’re done!

Clean your AR-15 the first time by disassembling it and spraying all the parts with a degreaser. Wipe it down with a clean cloth, then reassemble it and lubricate all the moving parts. You should do this every time you shoot it to keep it clean and prevent jams.
