AR-15 Magazines?s

Just wondering if anyone has ever tuned up their AR-15 magazines? I know about rebuild kits and extended non-tilt followers. What Im wondering about is if anyone has ever gone over the top opening with a micro file and some fine sand paper to smooth all rough, sharp edges and cut down any burrs? Also, on the polymer magazines are the feed lips plastic or are they just plastic covered metal with the metal exposed on the underside?

The reason I ask is because I like to shoot long range and Im wondering if the rough edges create gouges in the bullets which could hurt accuracy.
