I didn't think about that! Good call. I am going to try it right now.

Is the taper pin slot tapered, or can it be removed from either end?

Thanks for the idea, and inspiration, but I didn't have anything handy to cut the allen wrench with, and hitting it with a bend in it was doing nothing for me.

I ended up going through my tool box (most of my tools are at my dad's, in the work room - **** I need a house of my own), and finding some picture hanging nails. I cut the tip off one, filed it down, and it fit perfectly.

Now, I have it fully stripped, and ready to polish. One more read through this thread, and I will be ready to go.

I hear a lot of mention of Flitz polish here, but are there any recommendations for other polishes? I have used Mothers in the past, and it seemed to have worked well.

I did a quickie job on mine, using a Dremel moto-tool, and I used the "stick" rouge that came with some Dremel tools. It worked quite well!

Just be sure to get all of it off when you're done.

WOW! I polished all elements of the bolt, and they cleaned up nice!!!

I have read that some people use white lithium grease and/or fine gun oil to lubricate the elements in the bolt.

A) Which is more recommended, the grease, or the oil; I'm leaning to the grease, no?

B) What portions of the inner bolt should get the lubrication?

--------------------------------

Onto another portion of the gun, the receiver. The main reason I polished the bolt, was to prevent any more burring/scratching of the receiver. I am looking to smooth out the inner portion of receiver. Does anyone know of a reason not to do this? You can see the scratches (I know they are said to be, 'normal') in the receiver in the image below. Image 4A, and image 5.

I want to take the trigger elements off of the receiver when I do this. Any thoughts on that?

This thread is awesome. I'll be polishing my bolt and its internals as soon as I can.

I went through the thread and all the full bolt strip-down photo links are unviewable. Can someone post a step-by-step strip-down guide please?

What images aren't you able to view? I can see all them, at least on the first few pages.

Don't be too intimidated. Taking the bolt down is rather simple, as long as you have a good vice, and the correct size open ended wrench. Once my bolt was in the vice, I pulled the two halves apart and put a Three prong to two prong conversion plug between the vice and the bolt handle, to keep it open while I worked.



My wrench didn't fit correctly, so I shimmed it with a sliver of aluminum can, and got it off that way. The hardest part is getting the spring retainer off. You have to have strong hands to compress the spring, and then pop off the retainer with a screwdriver or something - same for getting it back on.

I over polished the bolt, now that I think about it. It isn't "sloppy" or loose, at least not to my touch, but I could have skipped a few areas. She still shoots well.

I gave them a sanding around the edges, and flat surfaces. I didn't take off all of the bluing, but a good amount came off. They are nice and smooth now. Did doing that make a difference over all? I'm not sure, but it didn't hurt!

Thanks

This was very helpful. I have recently done a complete overhaul on my 93. I bought it on the day I turned 18 (I am 26 now). This helped add a few finishing touches to a rifle so near and dear to my heart.

Well, lets see ....

I'm on my second Mk II.

With the first II I fell prey to the 'having to stick my fingers in it to make it work ' thing, AKA: Polishing the bolt.

With this second II I'm just shooting it. First few bolt cycles felt like sand was in the action, that quickly went away. I worked the bolt (both cocking and de-cocking) MAYBE 100 times, just keeping the action clean and oiled, and after 200~300 rounds the action is like silk.

Simply shooting this second II and keeping the bolt clean and oiled has made the bolts action "screw with my mind" sweet.

So, if you have to polish the bolt to make the action smooth there may be something wrong with the bolt.

If your polishing the bolt from some form of compulsion to manipulate your physical surroundings and just have to 'stick your fingers in it', you may be better off just walking away from the gun till the compulsion passes.

Using moto tools and drills and such? If its that bad you should send the gun back.
