Folks:  ANY pics or instructions for polishing the disco?  Thanks.


David shows the disconnector sitting on the trigger bar to illustrate contact points. Here’s some pictures with a disconnector by itself.

I point to one face, but don’t forget there are two sides.

A dremel can easily take off too much material.

That’s a good point. I don’t use normal Dremel sanding drums. Even with that caveat and that I use high grit papers... Be careful and follow David’s instructions and advice as to material removal and caution.

I asked because David's pic of the disco in the trigger bar rear looks mirror polished.  IT may be a CGW disco - OK.  I used some stones to smooth the disco but left the machine marks. 

I was wondering if hitting it with the dremel felt and Flitz would be OK - they only polish.

Yes it won't caue an issue if you go easy and polish with a Dremel felt and some polishing compound at low speed for a short period of time.  But, I haven't felt the need to polish a CGW disconnector.  And, if you are in your action you ought to go ahead and install one (along with a cgw adjustable sear) and a CZ comp or CGW hammer of your choice.

I'm having trouble finding 3M aluminum oxide sandpaper in those grits (400, 800, 1000). Can someone point me to a source?

Thanks!

I have also been testing a very high content moly grease that can actually lower the DA pull a few ounces by itself, so I add the moly in these critical areas when I do a final reassembly.


Can you tell us what "moly grease" you use (or something similar)?

Thanks!

     Hiya looking Intently, I'd guess a phone call to your local ace,lowes,or home depot should fix your gritty needs without having to shop on amazon.

It's really simple, here it is.  It works well on the rear of the trigger bar that contacts the sear trigger pad and the FPB lifter pad.  The top pic is how it looks ready to use, the bottom is how it looks when purchased new.



Does anyone know what number bit this is? I've looked on dremel's site at all the pictures and don't see one like this?

Thanks!

I also thought I heard people talking about automotive shops as source. ... I don't mind shopping online. I'm in Indiana and it is 22 degrees out!

CGW makes it now. You can order it on their site. Mix it with oil to thin it if you are needing a more cold weather option.

Cheap and easy source for high grit paper 2000+ is WalMart.  Go to the automotive section where they have the body work supplies and look on the top shelf.  My local store carries supplies up to 5000 grit.  2000 grit is normally about $3.50 a pack and I used a bunch of it on my 75b Omega cleaning up the trigger bar.
