It is also worth polishing the vertical face on the sears so they slide on each other better, polishing the ramp only makes the cocking smoother.
Thanks Tench - you're turning into my personal YODA!!
I'll have another look tonight - can you tell me what I can safely use to polish the sears ( the 'ramp' is like a mirror but the sear faces aren't! ), also how do I cut the springs - I can't find anything to use to do the cutting - I'm not well kitted out and cant get my pliers into the spring without straining the coils??
PS still not decided whether to drill holes in my shroud ( worried it will make it noisy? )
I have many questions!!
