I did get some marginal improvement, the scratches appear lighter to me and less defined as i run my nail across it. But with the force it takes to shove the rounds down a fully loaded mag, well there's always going to be something.

    They look alot lighter, as if just discoloration from light scratches and not actual "cuts" in the casings.

    You should prob stop there and then see how it smooths out after shooting, those areas will likely fade away.

    Good Job!

    According to another thread in progress, its a "SAM" THANG!

    Tight Catch and Sharp edges on Bolt! Everyone who has checked has it, yet non SAM owners do not see this (haven't asked anyone with SLR's or other Arsenal rifles.)

    Shouldnt be an issue but seems TEX found a good fix and it prob even cycles smoother now.
