Finally got my XCR...what a cool weapon.

So while I wait for the ammo to arrive, I sent the lower to Bill for a trigger job.

I feel like a kid in a candy store.

Thanks to all for your advice and postings. Thanks to you Terra!

Stuiped question but, I dont feel like thinking very deeply or to any extent right now but, by not lubbing it, wont the parts ware faster, making the break in quicker???

My thought would be yes for the parts that wear together, provided the ammo is hot enough to cycle it.

But is break-in just about parts wearing together?

Running dry metals together is a bad idea in general. Metal surfaces spall or tear and smear when rubbed together without a layer of lube between them. I just directed a guy to scrap out a $400 machine tool part today for that very problem. Now on your rifle your may never notice visible smearing of the metal, at least not for a long time, if shot dry, but none-the-less I can't think of a good reason to do it.
