(1) Zeroing Procedures. A stable shooting position must be used for zeroing to assure that 3 round groups can be fired within about 2 MOA (1/2 inch ES at 25 yards). Sight adjustments would then be made for targets beyond 300 yards (where the bullet is already 16-18 inches below line of sight). Battlesight Zero. Iron sight zeroing is essentially the 2-17 . It is recommended to zero for a 300 yard POA/POI (Point of Aim/Point of Impact) as a battlefield or battlesight zero so that any targets within 400 yards will be hit by a center of mass aimed shot based on a 22 inch “kill” zone defined as +7 inches (above) to – 15 inches (below) with respect to the center of mass aiming point.d. A 100 yard zero can also be set.5 inches below line of sight for a 100 yard zero. The bullet reaches its maximum height above line of sight at 150-175 yards at approximately 7 inches and drops to 6 inches below line of sight at 350 yards. A 300 yard zero would provide for a 350 yard battlefield zero based on a smaller 13-14 inch high “kill” zone. If initial zeroing is to be done at a 25 yard range then the bullets should hit approximately 1 inch above line of sight (aimpoint) for a 300 yard zero or 0. Any easily seen target can be used.

During and after cleaning the operator should inspect the rifle and its components for any irregularities that may cause problems during its operation. where applicable • Uncustomary looseness • Parts exhibiting signs of cracks. burrs. • Damaged or missing parts • Improper assembly or function • Absence of free movement. dents or obvious signs of damage or stress • Presence of signs or tactile clicks in controls. they should be corrected immediately. INSPECTION AND LUBRICATION 3-1. If any potential deficiencies are noted.CHAPTER 3 MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS Section I. where applicable 3-1 . INSPECTION GUIDE.

(2) Every 1000 rounds apply a medium coating of rifle grease to the bolt locking lugs and their recesses in the receiver. General Lubrication Guidelines: (1) Use CLP (Cleaner Lubricant Preservative) which is a synthetic blend effective down to -65 degrees F and meets MIL-L63460 to clean and lubricate all metal parts requiring lubrication. a. 3-2 . Also use a light coating of it as a preservative on all exposed steel surfaces.• • • • General overall cleanliness Presence of proper lubrication Movement of gas piston (free movement) Presence of corrosion or degradation of surface finish 3-2. the bolt guide track in the receiver. LUBRICATION GUIDE. the operating rod guide track on the side of the receiver and press grease into the bolt roller and lightly coat the camming slot in the operating rod.

Replace grease with CLP in all areas but the bolt roller. In very extreme conditions the MK 14 MOD 0 can be fired reliably completely dry without any lubricants. Also be sure bore has drained before attempting to fire if it has been submerged in water.b. Clean and re-lubricate as soon as conditions allow. (2) Cold: Again minimize use of grease in extreme cold environments. Use a light coating of CLP for lubrication of all areas but the bolt roller. Take the time to disassemble the rear sight if possible and flush with fresh water and re-grease contact areas. (3) Saltwater: It is important to flush the entire weapon with plenty of fresh water after any submersion in Salt Water / Surf environments. Extreme Conditions: (1) Hot: Minimize use of grease in a hot dusty / sandy environment to reduce dirt buildup from the environment. Remove any muzzle cap used and retract bolt 1-2 inches to 3-3 .

c.Chamber and Bore: Clean every 250 rounds with the supplied Otis Kit according to instructions provided in kit or use the supplied Bore Snake when little time is available .allow for barrel drainage (dry the bore immediately if conditions permit).Remove and clean gas piston every 500 rounds and also clean gas cylinder bore at the same time (using Otis Kit).Extreme conditions will increase frequency) (1) Barrel . Be sure and clean any carbon build-up from the bore of the piston as well. General Cleaning Guidelines: Cleaning Frequency (General Conditions.pull three times through bore with CLP on the first few inches of the bore snake (pull from chamber out muzzle). The M14 Combination Tool can be used to clean carbon from the piston grooves (it's 3/8 inch wrench section is also used to remove the gas plug). (2) Gas Cylinder / Piston . Every 250 rounds check to be 3-4 .

(3) Bolt / Operating Rod /Connector Group .muzzle up). Clean gas cylinder and piston any time piston is not free to move (dragging / binding). Do not lubricate the piston or bore of the cylinder. If the bolt face gets excessively dirty before 1000 rounds has been fired it can be cleaned with an Otis kit scraper tip and nylon brush and CLP or Bore Cleaner while in the weapon. See para 3-5 and disassembly procedure para 3-5(4). If the piston still drags even when clean turn the weapon in for inspection (gas cylinder lock may be overtorqued). If there are problems with the extractor or ejector. these parts can be removed with the bolt remaining in the weapon by use of a 30-06 cartridge case or dummy round (do not use a live round) placed into the chamber with the bolt "closed" on it.sure the piston is free (falls under its own weight when the operating rod handle is retracted .Clean these items every 1000 rounds. This requires removal of the action from the stock. A punch can then be used to knock out the extractor from underneath (with magazine removed) which also frees the ejector (retract bolt slowly in order to keep ejector spring under control as its tension is released. 3-5 .

(4) All Other Parts - Clean and Lubricate all other steel parts with CLP every 1000 rounds or as needed.
