Alright, I'm curious now. Most everyone that I've heard has said that the AKA parts (trigger and sear) ought to be polished... but the G3 site says that they're already polished. Is it worth the time to work on them or not?

If they already come polished obviously there is nothing you can do. However it can't hurt to polish them as much as possible. It will make the operation smoother. So just wait until you get them and then decide.

Does anyone know? I've really got no idea what the difference in appearance would be or what to look for. *Chuckles.* I've got the thing here.

If its really really shiny and smooth, its polished. Most aftermarket trigger internals are pretty well finished, I don't know why the AKALMP one wouldn't be.

The AKA trigger parts need to be polished. They come with a beadblasted finish that will over time sorta self-polish and become smooth. But I like my trigger to be nice from the start so I polish them. When you see a set you will understand what I mean.

Just for a little bit of FYI, AKA is no longer going to beadblast their trigger plates and their sears.

it took me about 5 min. to get it nice and shiny.. and IMO it was worth it. the parts are case hardened so you dont need to worry about wear and tear. another thing is that the weight is really nice. gives it a solid feel.

hey JOKER13, wy arent they gonna beadblast them anymore?

Ghost... what sort of sandpaper did you use? The only recommendation I've heard is 600, 1000, and 1500... in that order... but if you relaly feel the 600, I can only imagine that 1000 or 1500 is practically PAPER and wouldn't do much...
