One other thing if i end up liking the stock im gonna have it primered then digi camoed pink. The stock not the gun
Sweet rifle I wish they had something with the large capacity mags when I bought my FCP-K.
The bolt will smooth out with use but you can help it along. I have seen some of the efforts folks put into bolt kits and it doesn't seem worth the trouble but I was able to improve mine with a bit of emory paper and metal polish.
You can get much lighter lift feel by polishing the surfaces shown (make sure to do the ramp)
So as to not actually remove metal, I used water with a very fine emory paper followed by some metal polish to smooth the finish on the mating surfaces. I also used the poilsh on the edges of the lugs and the bolt works like butter
