Pauly's STEELIN' "special"

The S12 has: KVar buttstock and pistol grip, Tromix DIY trigger guard, Tromix Tapco modified fcg, Krebs front and rear sights, and a MD Arms VPlug, and now the Pauly's STEELIN' bolt, bolt carrier, fire control group modification. This included; a mirror polish (and correct profile on the bolt), the locking lugs, bottom of the carrier, rail guides, recoil spring channel, all friction bearing parts on the FCG (including the axis pin), tuned the extractor, and media blasted the carrier to give it a more matt finish.
When I polished my bolt it was my first time and I did a very basic (read, a little rough) contouring and polishing. I also slightly smoothed up the rail guides on the carrier. I knew that it was not "finished" but it was where I stopped. When I saw the " back burner special" price of $40.00 shipped I contacted Paul. For all that would be done plus the advantage of having an experienced person see the rough contouring and polishing that I did and give a professional critique of it would be worth it. Paul did an outstanding job on all of the parts including correcting my errors and I received them back four days after he received them. I could immediately tell a difference when I put everything back together, the action was considerably smoother than before. Aesthetically speaking the carrier looks a lot better with a more subdued matt finish.
I took the S12 out back and put several rounds of the above mentioned ammo through it. Everything functioned perfectly and very smoothly, no feeding issues at all (w/ proper V Plug settings). I think that the only thing left to do is to open up my 3 ports to the correct factory specs.
Remington will only function on the V Plug #5 setting - hulls land about 5' @ 2 o'clock. Winchester #8 same results as the Remington. Winchester slugs will function on setting #3 - hulls drop out about 18" @ 2 o'clock. Slugs on Setting #4 - hulls land about 5' out @ 2 o'clock. Same results with Winchester 00 Buck on settings #3 and #4.
Sorry about the one pic, the wife is gone and she is the computer savy one. Have to figure out how to load more than one pic at a time.
Thank You Paul.
