AR15 Lube Points

Been a while, eh?  I've been busy moving, and then doing taxes.

Anyway, I've come upon this thread on the forum with some handy graphics showing the points to lubricate the parts of AR-15/M-16 pattern rifles.  The information is available in the M-16 field manuals, which are available for free download from several websites, but the information is displayed very simply in the graphics in the thread, and you don't have to read several pages of dry field manual text to get the same information.

MP5-Look Parts Kit For GSG-522

A German Sports Guns spokesman talked about these kits shortly after the HK lawsuit, but this is the first time I've seen these parts for sale.  CDNN Investments has the parts available to make your GSG-522 look like an HK MP5.  At $19.99, I think the price is really reasonable.

Direct link to the GSG-522 to GSG-5 parts kit @ CDNN.

Although I think some of the changes made to create the GSG-522 were genuine improvements, there's no reason you couldn't mix and match parts.
