I'm not for sure, but I seriously doubt it, because people Dye them all the time and they don't swell up..

if you set your gun in a car for about 4 hours in 80-90 degree heat it will. my first bushy the bolt swelled up from heat. i don't have that bushy anymore though. thats the last time i do that.

i know for a fact that they swell

i live in kansas and right now we have had like 3 cosectutive weeks of 100+ temps and a heat index of 110 and like 90 percent humidity or somethin like that (im not a weather man) and the moisture in the air will soak into your gun's bolt and make it swell..the reason i know is that when you have it at room temp (75 degrees) the bolt can bounce around in there a little and after the day of playing in the heat i could hardly pull the bolt out!

i know this didnt make much since..(me just trying to talk like i know what im talking about)..


have a nice day
matt

I don't know if they swell due to heat or moisture, but they will swell. If you apply a petroleum based lube to the bolt (either grease or oil) it will permanently swell. Not necessarily larger than the bore but it will be a tight fit. It's not necessarily a bad thing. If you are getting a lot of blowback then this will help if not cure the problem.
