A1 bolt - eye cleaning holes

Do you guys feel this works on the A1? I have had a few breech breaks and for me it seems like the little holes in the side of the bolt do a good job of blowing the debris out but I don't see any other manufacturers attempting to use this method to help keep their eyes clean.

Iirc other manufactures don't use magno valves either, which in theory are far superior to spring valves. Dye has a system where the bolt rides through a tube which protects the eyes. The bolt will blow or scrape any debris down the tube thus "cleaning " the eyes. The flaw with this technology is that I have seen these thin plastic tubes crack and break alot at my local field.

It's actually a really good but primitive system. That is another reason the eye covers are plastic. they are flexible. This way the paint has somewhere to go, rather then down the barrel to cause more issues.
