    I've been reading thru a lot of the threads and I'm looking for feedback from those that have actually polished the internal parts on their saiga.

    What parts did you polish?

    What did you use to do the polishing?

    What issues or difficulties if any did you experience?

    How big of an improvement did you gain?

    If you have pics or a video demonstrating such, please share as well.

    Thanks

    J

    You didn't say what configuration your Saiga is in currently. Have you converted? What trigger group are you using? Are you having FTE issues?

    Polishing will help it run smoother, but if you are having FTE issues, you'll need to look at the gas ports.

    I polished every moving part and every sharp edge in my S12. Nothing helped the FTE issue after the conversion until I opened up the gas ports. Now, it rocks with any WM bulk ammo.
