One question, is it legal to bend the transfer bar that prevents trigger pulls when a magazine isn't in?
There may be over spray of paint inside the receiver. That is probably what you have smoothed out by working the action. Many people suggest taking a scrub pad to the inside of the receiver and cleaning out that paint. Personally I just let the parts polish together from shooting it.
Yes it is legal to defeat the magazine disconnect.
Just bend the Magazine Disconnect bar's tab up which will remove the pressure on the transfer bar.
