Just got a mini

Hey guys I just picked up a gently used le black chrome mini(v3). I took it apart and re-lubed everything. Its shooting fine however the bolt has a couole deep scratches on it. Could I polish it? How do I go about doing that?

The word "deep" tells me they are beyond polishing out. You can however take some 400 grit sandpaper to them take the rough edges off the scratches, then hit it with some 800 to smooth that out.

Can't really polish the bolt too much. You can but it won't show any improvements because it's already smooth. You can polish the poppet however if you would like.

If it's on the outside of the bolt where the spring rides then it'd be a waste of your time to do anything. It won't affect performance.

Irony, it is the outside of the bolt where the spring goes over it. I guess I'll leave it alone since it doesn't affect performance.
