    This may or may not be a stupid question but does anybody lube the charging handle on a ar15?

    Just a light film of TW25. I use it on the whole action, and can actually store it that way. When I used CLP, I would lube the rifle when I was shooting, then clean and store nearly dry.

    I have an Adams Arms piston kit on my New Bushmaster & it is nice to still have oil & not a messy clean up on the BCG at the end of the day!!!
