    in all the years i have been firing ar type weapons i don't see what the rug is going to help.

    i also haven't found a use for those "gapper" things either.

    or those rubber balls people put on their barrels.

    and the list goes on--

    what is the rug supposed to do for an ar anyways?

    It keeps blown primers or parts of the primer cup form getting under your fire control parts and stopping it from working...a small piece of primer can and will wedges under you trigger and your gun is now a club... It has happened to me before and to friends of mine. Usually it happens from Reloading the heavy bullets for NRA high power shooting. Often the 223 is flirting with a max powder charges in combo with the 80 gr bullets for across the course loads which sometimes results in blown primers... It also may be a good idea if your gun is a duty gun where a trigger problem may cost you your life..
    do this test. Take your rifle to the range and take a spent primer with you and drop it down into the lower receiver. Then fire a mag or so out of your AR and see what happens.. B2B

    i guess it all depends on the ammo and the type of shooting you d
    8.95 is cheap insurance beats broken parts or a jam

    I still say snake oil. I see it this way, if your blowing primers enough to need this, you have problems that need to be fixed.
