Definitely polish your bolt. It won't help your gun any but you'll feel better afterwards. Seriously though, there is a guy right up I-5 in Portland who specialized in that.

I polished the underside of mine with a orbital sander and hand sanding with 400 and 600 grit sandpaper on the rails. a dremel helps with profileing the rough edges on the bolt. I live in glide if you want to go shooting some day.

If you guys get together shoot me a message. I am here in Roseburg. I can also show you how to polish the bolt and drill the gas ports. Still tuning mine up.

Before I even shot my Saiga-12 I took it straight to the gunsmith and had the gas ports and gas block enlarged, bolt and trigger polished, replaced the gas piston with a performance Puc and then added the TAC-47 auto plug. I've had 0 fail to ejects. With 2 out of 3 ports obstructed that could be the issue.
