Polishing Merlin Hammer

So I'm working on a Merlin project and I've been toying with the idea of polishing the hammer and possibly inside of the gun. Just wondering if this is something thats helpful on AKA guns since I know they are supposedly made to tighter tolerances and I wouldn't want to mess them up. I don't think it would be a problem, just looking for some general feedback before I go for it.

Polishing the hammer is never a bad idea as its a much harder material and will not change its diameter much. Polishing the lower tube has always made me nervous and if you have never done it before I would suggest sending it to someone with some experience.

I mean...I have some old barrels to practice on...
I've done a lot of minor custom builds and mods, polished a few hammers before, installed eyes in a spyder etc...I think I can handle it...

But it does make me nervous too. Would suck to ruin such a nice gun. Hmm...

I'd say err on the side of caution. Polish the hammer if you like, but leave the lower tube alone to avoid any risks. A merlin isn't exactly a $100 budget cocker. Besides, any benefit you'd get from polishing the tube as well would be miniscule
