A great tool to polish to get into hard to reach places is Dremel tool #422 Felt Polishing Cone.
It is denser and harder than 1/2" polishing wheel #414, polishes alone, yet I used Dillon's Case Polish with it.

These are the best to polish a feed ramp with.  Have to buy a few when you find them as they are hard to find most of the time.  I use them with Flitz or Mothers polish.

Thank you for posting. I am new to CZs, about 1 year or so and don't like to disassemble since my manual dexterity is poor. I am 81. But that being said, I have learned to love the CZs after being a Sig and HK fan for years.

I use Kratex to polish all internal parts.

Just wanted to send out a sincere THANK YOU to schmeky for making this thread.

When I bought my SAR K2 it had a significant amount of gritty creep in SA and terrible stacking in DA. 1000 rounds later the creep went down a little but still pretty bad. I followed this guide and after some light sanding and polishing I am happy to report that the SA is now 95% creep-free and the DA is much smoother as well.

Now if only there was a company out there making some fiber optic sights and a SAO trigger for the SAR...  ;D

I've done my 75B and my SP-01 and for me it's very satisfying.  Both now have 3# SA and 8# DA trigger pulls. 
If I had known how much better being retired is than working I would have done it FIRST.

Smoothing the Action

What an amazing wealth of information. Anyone have any pointers for getting into the back corners? I'm using 600, 1000, 1200, 1600, 2200, and then flitz. The large surfaces are no sweat, but the recesses are the devil to get to.

I use various shaped felt wheels and points on my Dremel with red rouge followed by white.

Nice assortment of polishing wheels. I got a rouge polishing cloth that seemed to do the trick. There are still a few small corners and crevasses that are not mirror bright, but it's a lot better than it was.

What I do is take a q-tip and cut in half, pull off the cotton on each end, stick in a dremel on low speed and use the stem. I use Flitz  and Mothers Wheel and Mag Polish. Be careful to leave yourself enough of the stem sticking out. You don't want the end of the dremel to come in contact with your trigger bar. After doing that several times, I will, again, cut a q-tip in half and clean up the areas with the q-tips. This works great for me. Not sure if anyone here on the forum does this same thing or not.
