fluff and buff

using jewlers rouge and 1700rpm buffing motor, i fluffed and buffed S&W internal parts including bolt, took 45 minutes for the bolt,
the buffing makes the bolt shiney and slick so no place for crud adhesion.
spent my time buffing one time - rather than scraping carbon after each range visit.

I have 10 Vietnam-era M16s with OEM BCGs that are not nib coated, chromed, np3, etc. they are stock, they are dirty and get wiped down every now and then. i drop some lube on them once a month (they sit in the cars all the time) and all rifles have been functioning perfectly. semi auto and full auto.

how clean do you want your BCG? clean enough to eat off of?

it's a work rifle, i don't need it to shine.
i'd buy more ammo.



but in the end, it's your money.

here's a quick pic of the most recent three we got in. they look newish. the original seven all had bad FCG (the things would shoot when you released the trigger). Other than those parts, everything else is fine. You can tell those were abused.

these three function perfectly!

I had a FailZero BCG. I actually sold it. It didn'toperateanybetter thana standard, and it was not A LOT easier to clean. It was easier, but expected much easier for the $. Stick w/ a BCM or DD. Spend the extra $ on ammo.

Why are you scraping carbon after each range visit? Are you shooting 10,000 rounds at a time? All they need after any normal range trip is a wipe-down (if that) and more oil.
