    cleaning t3 bolt internals to lube or not to lube

    watched a vid on youtube that claims tikka owners manual to state that the bolt internals should be completely free of oil etc in otherwords run dry to work at there best
    seems a bit odd to me would of thorght you need a light oil

    so lube if so lightly or heavy
    or no lube at all?

    Cause it's only a tikka bolt, most carparks have a couple lying around
