Lubrication

Postby NavyShooter » Wed Jun 29, 2016 7:20 pm

I am a noob here and to the AR platform, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible about it.

I have a new IC SPR and some questions about lubrication. I think I have a handle on maintenance for the upper and the BCG.

My question is about lubrication on the lower. I'm not clear about what needs to be done on the lower, if anything. Do we need a drop of oil on the hammer spring or trigger spring? Anywhere else? Or should the lower remain completely dry?

Pivot pin, takedown pin. Also lift the bolt catch and put a drop on the backside. Safety selector shaft and mag catch. I use a Q-tip on those spots. Push the mag release all the way in and the mag catch lever will protrude from the lower. I use Slip extreme weapons grease on the trigger. Its the same places that Geislee recomends, not on the springs. I will see if I can find the diagram.

Very minimal lube on the lower, but where Stoneyarder said.

Lube points are in this PDF.

I just use the lube supplied with every Geissele trigger, seams to work well.

Agreed, I don't lube the lower parts often.

The lowers require less lubrication as mentioned above. We also lubricate them from the factory using a thicker lubrication on all moving/ contact parts. Generally, the lower does not get exposed to a ton of heat and carbon like an upper will.
