    John,

    I too was concerned about dust/dirt etc and the Bat tolerances. Research revealed no negative comments regarding this. Discussion with the builder gave no negatives.

    My largest concern is that in my area, home and range, there is always very fine "blow sand" in the air and especially after a shot.

    I've resolved for myself that normal cleaning an care will be sufficient.

    I'm anal enough to have considered a very large condom for the 375 AM. Thinking elephant here......

    Leave your bolt closed and you will have no problems. I left my bolt open once when riding to the target on a day where fine grit was blowing. It did get a little gummy. I have done the same many times with the bolt closed never a problem.
