Polishing parts...Tumbler?

I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I've been wrong before.....many times actually.

I have a 1969 Marlin 336 Lever action and the action is not as smooth as I'd like. I've never owned a levergun so the action might be as good as it gets.

Could I take some of the internal parts and tumble them like I do with brass or would that remove too much material? I already took some 800 grit paper and metal polish to some parts but it didnt seem to make much difference.

Keep in mind I lightly polished the parts for fear of ruining the items.

Thanks for your help, try not to laugh!

Steve
