Glad I could help. The Bushy is great so far. You can check out my range report in the AR Rifles sub forum. I am hoping to get a chance to shoot it some more on Thursday.Thanks Bozz, I kinda figured that after doing some forum reading just now... I believe you need a complete "RF85" treated rifle to qualify for no lube.
However a "no lube" AR seems pretty revolutionary and that's why I was curious about it! Thanks for picking up on that Bozz! How's the bushy treating you my man?
This one seems priced pretty reasonably.Wow. Pretty neat. First I've heard of them. Wonder what that costs.
Waste Management, Tidewater Fiber, or BFI?? Isn't the AA coating like a Teflon/Moly mixture??Chemistry is coming a long way with no-lube stuff.
I am testing an automatic garbage truck can lifting arm with entirely no-lube bushings and plastic sliders with moly molded into the plastic. (the plastic did need to be greased up good for the initial break-in to keep it from squealing) We've got this thing doing 500 cycles an hour, going on a few weeks now at 10 hrs a day. So far everything looks good.
As far as I know, nobody else is even looking at this stuff in the refuse industry. New tech scares people. Once someone comes out with it, and it proves itself in the field; the cautious copy cats will soon follow.
All three of mine fit a tad loose on my 2 Anderson Sport uppers and 'standard' DSA flat top. My Phase 5 lower fits them all snug. I have an Ares Armor Harpe upper coming for a Surplus Arms lower. the Anderson lower seems the same as the SAA, but not as 'heavy' feeling as my Phase 5 lower. My Anderson lowers are marked .223/5.56 with 3 digit serials...means nothing in Va though. Caliber markings on lowers don't matter.Snake oil to me! I will say I have three stripped anderson lowers rand they seem pretty high quality as far as finish/quality goes. I can't say much for fit since I have yet to build them up and put them on an upper.
