fluted vs non-fluted bolt in a BAT SV or DS
« on: January 14, 2014, 02:43:57 PM »
Anyone know the weight difference between a fluted and non-fluted bolt?

Anyone have a preference?

I had the bolts of my Multi flat BAT's diamond fluted for looks.  Pro's, it sheds some weight and I think looks good.  Con's, collects more dust so may tend to bind a bit easier.  Phoenix is a good example.  Still, it never stopped me.  When you get a cleaning regime set up and it works it is a non issue.

Speedy has his opinion, but I don't know if it applies to an all stainless action.
