Polish Internals?

How do you go about polishing the internals of the M98? What kind of abrasive? What parts's do you polish?

just polish where the bolt moves and linkage arm slides back in forth. i start out with steel wool or sandpaper then finish it up with mother's mag and aluminum polish.

for gods sake use a dremmel tool!!!!!!! if u can or at least borrow one, i bought a round wool atachment for it the same size as the rear bolt area i think its 1" or 1 1/4, and buy some mothers aluminum polish

p.s. its also a waste of time , i makes them a LITTLE smoother
So much for my 2k1 :/ , had 2 pay off the car

now: Spyder Xtra, Clear Ricochet 2nd gen. , and a 16oz Stubby

soon: PB drop foward, CP Barrel, Macro, New bolt, 88ci Nitro and a Chrome Boo-Yah in the distant future

You won't see the performance boost you're looking for. In most cases it's not even noticable, but if it makes you feel better use lots of Mothers Mag Polish.

I dont think this is as important on the newer guns, the old guns (like mine) had alot of powdercoat overspray inside the hammer and bolt area. It caused parts to wear faster because it was basically sandpaper against the bolt and hammer o-rings. Anytime you smooth out the mating surfaces of two metals they will wear alot slower, dont look for a performance gain, look for a gain in life of your o-rings and parts. Do NOT take any metal away with sandpaper, if you have to use sandpaper (600 grit or higher) just take away the powdercoat material, as soon as you can start to see metal stop and go to your polish. Mothers Mag is the preferred choice, it can be found in most automotive stores. Dremel is dangerous because it has the ability to take alot of material in a short amount of time, if you can help it try to do it by hand, it shouldnt take you more than a couple of hours.

gatorchris is right... the other models do have a rough internal and polishing does help reduce wear
