    How much grease should be on the rails the bolt moves on? My recently purchased m1a has enough Vaseline looking grease on it to lube a car. Should just be a light layer, correct?

    Correct,the more grease the more dirt and crud it will collect.

    Welcome aboard by the way. ;)

    Greetings Citizen
    Believe an owner / operator manual can be downloaded @ SA
    That should give you a starting point of, what, where and when.
