Yes. We nickel plate our bolt carriers to allow the rifle to operate continuously without any wet or oily surfaces for dirt or carbon build-up and cling to.
Our rifles are able to go thousands of rounds without cleaning or lubrication (given they are being shot in “Normal” mode and not using steel-cased ammunition) while still retaining its accuracy. However, we recommend giving your POF-USA rifle a good cleaning every 300-400 rounds to keep your rifle as smooth as possible. See our Technical FAQ’s page for more information and watch our Basic Cleaning Video for recommended procedures.
No. Heat is dissipated on these parts and you should refrain from using oil.
