The design of the ejector makes its disassembly for cleaning by you, the operator, impractical. Make sure your M16A2 ejects those empty cases clear of you and your rifle by following these steps on a monthly or as required (weekly if firing blanks) basis.

2 Place a few drops of CLP around the ejector to form a puddle.

3 Take a fired or dummy case and place it under the lip of the extractor. With a rocking motion, press the case down against the ejector. Since the ejector is spring loaded, some resistance will be felt. Press on the case until it stops against the bolt face. Ease off with your thumb slightly and press down again. Repeat several times. Replace the CLP frequently. Once the spring action of the ejector is smooth and strong, dry off any excess.

CLP - Cleaner, Lubricant and Preservative - does three things at once: ONE - It contains solvants to dissolve firing residue and carbon. TWO - It lays down a layer of Teflon as it dries to provide lubrication. THREE - It prevents rust from forming.

Use CLP as follows:

a. Always shake bottle well before use.

b. Place a few drops on a patch or rag.

c. Clean your rifle with these patches and rags until they come out clean.

d. Take a clean patch or rag and apply a fresh, light coat.

NOTE

Don't "dry clean" your rifle. DO NOT use hot water or other solvents or you will wash away the Teflon lubricant that has been building up as a result of your using CLP.

DO NOT interchange bolts between rifles.

BOLT - Cracks or fractures, especially in the cam pin hole area; bolts that contain pits extending into the firing pin hole need replacing.

FIRING PIN RETAINING PIN Bent or badly worn

CAM PIN - Cracked, chipped, or missing

FIRING PIN - Bent, cracked, blunted, or sharp end

IF PARTS ARE MISSING OR DEFECTIVE, SEE YOUR ARMORER.

EXTRACTOR AND EXTRACTOR SPRING

Check extractor for chipped or broken edges in the area of the lip that engages the cartridge rim. Check that the rubber insert is inside the extractor spring.

Under all but the coldest Arctic conditions, CLP is the lubricant to use on your rifle. Remember to remove excessive CLP from the bore and chamber before tiring.
