I was wondering what you guys do to minimize glare from your bolts. I've seen a lot of really nice paint jobs on rifles, but then the silver bolt catches my attention. Personally, I have used some high grit sandpaper and a lathe to make it more matte looking, like brushed aluminum.

I'm actually on a borrowed computer, but as soon as mine is back up and running, I'll post the pics. It seems to help, I've not been found because of glare, whereas my teammates have been able to find snipers with stock bolts by the glare. It still reflects light, but you can no longer see your face in it. Basically I scuffed the mirror polish (but is still looks good).

If you do paint your bolt, you first need to sand it down with medium grit, paint it, then replace the cheesy guide rings with size 14 O-Rings so that the rings don't peel the paint off.
