Now that its running smooth by itself, I will try it out with the carrier (just as we did for the ejector).
This is important as without the carrier, my fingers may adjust to tension and give the illusion of a smooth action. The bolt carrier will keep the bolt head in line.

Now trying with the carrier...

Not as smooth as i would like.. and so I take note of marks yet again.

But this time I don't use the file. I simply use a buffing wheel..

Now I will try it out again WITH the bolt carrier..AND the recoil spring..

You should not use the charging lever to check action smoothness as it cants the carrier and it WILL jam. as shown here..
