A few words on ammunition and 16" carbines:

Our 556 NATO Carbines are test fired using PMC 223 Remington 55 grain FMJ-BT Ammunition. They are chambered for 556 but we test them with 223 to insure that the buffer system functions properly with the lower pressure round. We recommend that you use the same or comparable loads to insure proper cycling function and operation of your carbine. We do not recommend the use of any Russian, steel or lacquered cased ammunition with this rifle. Any other case material besides brass will result in chamber fouling and extraction problems.

Russian 556 NATO ammo is notorious for not cycling the action on carbines. We recommend that you do not fire any steel or lacquer cased ammo out of your new RGuns 16" carbine 556 MIL SPEC chambered upper receivers. Use only brass cased rounds. If you don't know how to tell the difference, steel is usually gray and lacquered is almost always green.

Our Carbines are test fired with magazine they have been shipped with, if ordered. If not we use a MIL SPEC 30 round aluminum magazine. We recommend using this magazine the first time out to insure proper operation, before using any other type of magazines such as Magpul PMags.

Before packing, the bore and chamber are scrubbed and swabbed. The Bolt Carrier Group is given a light coat of CLP inside and out.  Rem Oil is applied to the outside of the barrel. The rear sight, if included, is removed and packed separately due to shipping box constraints. Of course you should inspect the chamber and bore before use but It should function properly right out of the box.

After your first time out to the range, make sure to remove, disassemble and thoroughly clean the BCG. You will want to be sure to remove any carbon deposits from the bolt surface then lightly coat with CLP. This will help to prevent carbon buildup.

Note: Proper shouldering technique when firing 16" carbines is important for cycling. Make sure to keep good, firm pressure between the butt stock and your shoulder when firing. "Soft Shouldering" a carbine will more than likely cause it to "short stroke" and lock the bolt to the rear as it would when the last round has been fired and the magazine is empty.
