View Full Version : AK bolt cleaning

How often do you guys disassemble your AK bolts? Just disassembled mine for the first time and there was quite a bit of grime and little bit of rust in the extractor well and extractor. Will a little oil prevent this rust?

I only take mine fully apart when I first purchase the weapon and then every couple thousand rounds thereafter. You can oil up the external parts of the bolt but you should keep the firing pin and firing pin channel dry to avoid the free floating firing pin from getting gummed up. I spray some carb cleaner through the firing pin channel with the pin in place occasionally to keep it clean.
