Consider a VQ sear

You mention having a stock parts with a little polishing done. Have you considered a VQ sear. IMHO this is best single improvement you can make to a Mk.

Pin should not bend

I don't think the pin should bend or wear a groove where it rides. I have not seen this on any of my Mk. 3's. However, I might guess that it could have been bent by someone trying to force the lever...

Check your disconnector

Theo98 is probably right regarding cleaning. Have you checked your disconnector for sticking and the plunger and spring for raising the disconnector. Ther could be grit/dirt in the plunger hole. If...

Majestic trigger

Take a look at the Majestic trigger. It is flat faced plus a little "hook" at the bottom which lets you index your finger the same each time. It has pre and post adjustment(a little hard to use) but...

In jail

Through the center of the target (nice shooting) you can see the bars of a detention cell. Must be a fairly liberal prison system, CA perhaps.

Easy to check

Just take your FP out and see if it has 1 hole or 2. If it has 2 holes replace it. The failure point is in the middle of the forward hole.

Also

Check that the rear rail screw (if a rail is present) is not sticking too far down. Also check the front of the recoil spring assembly to see if it is above the surface of the bolt.

Aftermarket sear spring could be too light ,resulting in multiple discharges.
aftermarket plunger spring could be too light, resulting in fail to reset trigger by not lifting the disconnector.

Try the Majestic trigger

If too much or too little reach for the trigger is a problem you might want to get a Majestic trigger. It is adjustable fore and aft so it should fit any size hand.

If you only did one thing to it, put the VQ sear in. For less than $30 it makes a vast improvement in the trigger. You will have to get it drilled and tapped for a rail to put a scope or Red Dot on...

One more thing to try

Put the bolt in without the recoil spring assembly in the bolt. This will identify if the spring yoke is hanging you up.

Wproct is right on

To insure alignment, before putting in the bolt, insert the stop pin from the top. Only when it will go all the way down is a easy assembly assured.

Was it tight before the hammer strut support?

Was it tight before and if not take it out. Regarding aligning the upper and lower, use the stop pin from the top to achieve alignment before putting in the bolt.

Push forward on the trigger

Sometimes you can get a reset by simply pushing forward on the trigger. Once when I had adjusted my pretravel a little too close I was able to get a reset by pushing forward on the trigger.YMMV

Just the lever?

Is it just the lever that is tight? If you hinge the upper up does it still require the same amount of force?,and do you have a VQ boltstop in your lower.
