The .223/5.56 part isn't a debate; 5.56 produces 20,000PSI more chamber
pressure than .223. One is liable to blow their asses up, so to speak.

And it's not a clip. It's a magazine.

Author Colin Getz (7 days)
I'm sooooooo glad that those evil retractable stocks are illegal... Do you
know how many people are killed by stocks that aren't fixed???!!!!

Author Zombie Apocalypse (2 months)
1. you can put the safety on while it is empty and no round in the chamber.
if not use the charging handle to reset the trigger to put it on safe
2. its a magazine, not a clip
3. if it is chambered in .223, there is no debate. DO NOT SHOOT 5.56 OUT OF
4. when you pull the charging handle to the rear, push it back in position.
when you release the bolt, it will pull the charging handle violently
forward and grab skin and it will hurt.( 4:02 )

Author Corey Theus (3 months)
Nice for us first timers. Thanks for this..

Note....the chamber designation is what is "stamped on the barrel", not
what the lower says...

Author Nick K (1 month)
So if you can't have a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds in your
state, please explain to us why you have one right next to you in this

Author kerneldeadpixel (6 months)
Thanks for the video. Yes, I do agree with others that there were some
errors in your video but as someone who knows nothing about ARs, it was
informational for a barebones beginner. I at least know how to handle one
and operate it. That's what I was looking for as a starting point and I
have yet to see any other video out there that assumes you know NOTHING. I
didn't expect to know everything about an AR by watching this video. Now, I
can safely handle and operate it when I buy one. Then at that point, I can
do more research to know how to disassemble it, clean it, etc. just like I
did with my other guns. Again, thanks!

Pretty good intro. Points out there issues with different state laws as
well, which could get you in hot water if you get it wrong. About the only
thing I would say always start with is check the firearm is empty.

A well intended video. Thank you. A helpful (I hope) suggestion others
have not mentioned. Please lead by example, do not ever have live
ammunition anywhere in the area (same room) when doing any type of
demonstration or handling of weapon. Use dummy rounds if necessary.
Safety first. If you are preparing to load and make ready, that is

Nice video man. People will always hate. Remember haters, this video is for

Author shawnfarand (1 year)
Would also like to start by saying that I think your effort is commendable,
and while fairly new to the weapon, I wanted to point out that the weapon
system can be put into "safe" by cycling the charging system. I don't
believe it must be "loaded" with a mag and one in the chamber. Pull the
charging hammer back, release bolt catch, and move fire select to "safe"
position. without ammo and without a mag in the well.
please let me know if this in incorrect. thank you

ive owned a colt, stag arms, and sig sauer. I never had a single problem
with my stag arms :) I loved it. not too bad of a video though for a quick
ref for the AR
