Learn how to clean the M4 the Army way (VIDEO)

Fort Benning’s Army Marksmanship Unit has put out a short training film on disassembly and maintenance of the M-4, and it isn’t half bad.

The AMU has been producing “Shooter’s Corner” clips for the past several month and most have focused on manipulation and nomenclature of the M4 and M9.

In this latest production, SSG Michael Howard with the AMU’s master firearms shop, walks you through basic field stripping, cleaning and PM.

Sure, sure, we know this is all stuff you can already do upside down and blindfolded, and you have a piston gun anyway (or a Kalash) but it’s still interesting to see how the AMU guys do things.

And in the end, it’s always something you can pass on.
