Welcome to the forum.

It is not uncommon to do a bit of bolt way polishing if the bolt is not loose to start with. Since you don't see the inside of the receiver you can limit the polishing to where it is needed. I would mark the bolt with Prussian blue or with a felt marker and run it in to see where it is rough? Polish those areas until the bolt operation feels smooth.
