No serious cleaning, just wiped down the BCG, swabbed the bbl, and the patches cam out clean after that. Got the ammo for $8/20 rd box from dicks sporting goods.

I'm going to order a 14.5 pinned with a Bilock. I've almost got enough saved up. I've decided that any conflict that can't be solved with 20 rounds of 308 isn't going to be solved by me regardless. My need list is short, for sure. Then I'm expanding my loading bench.

They stay pretty clean unless you run a can. I know a couple guys doing failure tests on them. One has over 5k rounds with 2 failures, zero cleaning. Lube application only.

Here is the description from the website.
The M6A2™ rifle is a standard carbine available in various barrel lengths and in either 5.56mm NATO or 6.8mm SPC. The M6A2™ rifle is ideal for those who utilize optical sights as it employs a low- profile gas block. There is no A-frame front sight to obscure the field of view of the optical device. The M6A2™ rifle also features a longer midlength free float rail system with a removable return-to-zero top. Any M4 MIL Std 1913 accessory can be mounted to the rail, and because the rail has a monolithic profile, you can bridge devices from the receiver to the rail seamlessly. The longer rail also affords more 1913 “real estate” to mount your accessories.

The M6A2™ rifle can be used in various roles. With the 10.5 inch barrel, it is ideal for close quarters battle or fighting in built up areas. The 14.7 inch barrel M6A2™ rifle is an excellent general purpose carbine capable of effective fire out to 600 meters. And with the 16.1 inch barrel, the M6A2™ rifle can be used as a Squad Dedicated Marksman Rifle.

The M6A2™ rifle’s edge in capability, reliability, accuracy and long service life is the result of advanced technology materials and manufacturing processes, combined with progressive patented designs. All LWRCI™ carbine systems feature our short-stroke gas-piston operating system. The operating system is lightweight, self-regulating, and self-scraping. This system of operation does not foul the moving parts of the weapon with carbon or heat, greatly enhancing service life and reliability while decreasing both user and armorer maintenance. All M6A2™ rifles feature a match grade, cold rotary hammer forged barrel with a target crown. The barrel is treated with NiCorr™ surface conversion technology that extends service life, enhances accuracy, and increases the effective range of the weapon. As in all of our rifles, the bolt carrier group and the barrel extension of the M6A2™ rifle is coated with EXO’s patented nickel-boron surface conversion technology that provides a hard permanent lubrication to the moving parts.

The M6A2™ rifle defines itself as the most modern and incrementally evolved carbine in the world. At the same time it also presents the best value. Service life is extended to four times that of a legacy M4, accuracy is 100 percent better, and our M6 rifles are many times more reliable than the legacy gas-impingement design.

No, it's Nicorr.

But our revolutionary short-stroke gas-piston system is only one of the improvements we’ve made in the legacy carbine. LWRCI™ rifles and carbines utilize cold hammer forged barrels made out of 41V45 steel alloy and treated with NiCorr™ surface conversion technology. Cold hammer forging takes an oversized barrel blank, and using high pressure rotary hammers, compacts the barrel blank over a mandrel. This forms perfect rifling devoid of tool marks. It also compacts the molecular structure of the metal making it denser and stronger. These barrels can take a lot more use and abuse than a standard barrel before any degradation in accuracy or loss of velocity. NiCorr™ surface conversion has proved more lubricious, harder wearing, more heat and corrosion resistant than the hard chrome normally used in the bore. Our barrels can handle 20,000 rounds before replacement, as compared to 6,000-10,000 rounds on a standard M4.

If you plan to shoot a bunch of 223, get the 1050. Anything less will cost you time cutting brass and punching mil crimp primer pockets. Worth every penny. 650 for pistol rounds and blackout, single stage for 308.

Dillon is pretty tight with their stuff. I think there are 2 dealers that sell them online. I just call dillon and get my stuff directly from them. Both mine were second hand so that is another option. You have to act fast when you see one though, they go fast.

Edit: They sell high.

Converting my 650 to large primer will cost about 300 less than a new machine. I'm considering getting another unit. 3 dillons..... Yeah, that's about right.

What's the most reliable way to clean my dpms ? Are there different ways to do it ? What would be the most common lube and cleaner also.I only have a decent wood case cleaning kit that covers shotguns ,rifles and pistols of various calibers. Is this adequate or should I use a more specific one for the ar?

What you have will work fine for now. You will need a chamber brush sooner or later. Hoppes or equivalent will do fine. Get on youtube and look up AR15 cleaning. Break the entire gun down to field stripped condition and clean it. Pay careful attention to the BCG. That is the heart of the system. Lube well, I mean wet! A wet AR is a happy AR. Always clean from breech to bore.
