I recently purchased a USGI gas cylinder to put on my M1A. I was wondering it would be a drop in part, or if fitting would be required, and if I should have a gunsmith do it, or if I can do it myself (I have plenty of tools and a Castle-nut Wrench)
I would like to know EXACTLY what to do when cleaning the barrel of an M1A. I plan on buying a 25" Dewey rod with a guide, Hoppes solvent, a bronze .30 cal brush, 2" round patches,and stripper clips to hold the bolt back.
What I don't understand is what order to do things in when it comes...
