    I bought my first AR in August 2019. I have fired them and maintained them before but the last time I did that before buying this one was around 30 years ago - thus I forgot a lot about them.

    When cleaning my AR and following the manual, I realized there were no instructions on how to access and clean the gas tube. Doesn't the gas tube require regular cleaning & maintenance?

    Nothing you can do will do more than the thousand upon thousand PSI's of gas that goes through the tube each time you fire it
