    I've heard both. Pistons in SKS, FAL, and AK should be totally dry, and I've heard lightly oiled. Which is it?

    I've always heard dry. So the carbon doesn't stick as much. I keep the piston on my Yugo SKS dry.

    Its suppose to be dry. Oil will just bake in there creating a big mess and very hard to get out and off.
