So j0e_bl0ggs was asking how 'dirty' the BPSs were. After the first day's shooting, I noticed that the MagnetoSpeed bayonet looked 'greasy'. I wiped my thumb across it, and it WAS. It was almost 'wet'. Today, after shooting 19 rounds, the bayonet was definitely "greasy". Actually, given the texture of the stuff, the proper pronunciation should be "greezy", because that is what it is! Here are a couple of pictures:

Don't take the above as complaint. It is not! This 'moist' fouling is VERY EASY to clean up, and in fact, I think it adds a bit of "lubricant' to the bore. I find this 'interesting'.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill with wisdom. Paul Skvorc
