Remember that this is a military rifle. Lint is nothing to this rifle. Now maybe a hand-full of sand dumped in the carrier might slow it down... but not lint. [rocket]

Try using a small paint brush or acid brush to apply your lubricant rather than a cloth.That should cut back on the amount of lint your seeing. You can also use a small paint brush etc. to remove dirt,dust and lint when cleaning. Raymond

I have one gun rag that is completely wet from FP-10. I've used the same rage for 3 years, after awhile it turns black and I never see lint. As a matter of fact, it's starting to get worn out so I have to start over with a new one soon. Or if you don't want to wait, get a black or dark blue cloth to wipe your firearms down.

The lint shouldn't hurt, unless it's an extrordinary ammount. Cut up an old black t-shirt (100% cotton) and use it as a cleaning rag. You may still have lint, but it won't show. These are especially handy when wiping down the finish.
