Thanks for the tip, I'm not sure if what I did counts as "honing", but I did polish the mating surfaces to a high shine finish, as well as replace the trigger spring with a spare I had on hand one that was not so ridiculously stiff.
I'll keep my eye on it though, It won't be that big of a deal to just slap a new FCG in if needed.
Does take a a lot to cut past the surface case hardening.
My rifle was purchased in 90 and is still stock.
Minus a new FCG
I bought a NM FCG and that is hardened and can be polished/honed
