Hello all,

so I bought a 522 a few weeks ago and have gone to the range twice, I am curious what kind of bolt wear is normal? I try to keep the bolt well lubricated. . .seems to get real dry around 300 rounds in. I am noticing some wear on the buffer and bolt's top is this normal should I be using more oil? I only ask because this is my first .22

Any help would be appreciated

.22 in general are dirty and it'll seem like the lube is gone, but it's still there. To much lube will actually cause jams. Just be sure to lube all the rails and where there is rubs marks on the top and bottom of the bolt.

Don't worry about it! Just keep shooting it. Pete
