Good morning Gentlemen, I have recently acquired a pristine Squad Scout in composite black. The opportunity came up suddenly and I pounced on it.

It came in a cardboard box with a 5 round magazine and the owners manual. Nothing else.

My question is: What accessories, cleaning devices and fluids do I need to keep this puppy well fed and happy?

What do I need to know about types and sizes of ammo to shoot or NOT to shoot.

I appreciate your help here. Just wanting to get started out right and figured you guys are the experts. Thanks in advance.

Nice rifle! I would love to have a scout model! These rifles are pretty simple to take care of and maintain. It is better if you use grease instead of oil on these. I highly recommend this: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/379954/lubriplate-sfl-0-gun-grease-14-oz-can

I also recommend buying a chamber brush as well. Military style cleaning kit: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/919850/john-masen-deluxe-rifle-cleaning-kit-m1a has a chamber brush.
I personally use a product like this http://www.gggaz.com/m14-m1a-chamber-cleaning-tool.html
Makes life a little easier. It's important to o keep these chambers clean. A dirty chamber can cause all sorts of feeding and extracting issues.
For the rest of your questions you need to watch this guy: [ame]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HNKcWNeQzDE[/ame]
Tony is a heck of a guy and knows this way around these rifles. He has multiple videos on these rifles that covers ALOT of info. Hope this helps!
