Polishing the ram won't don't anything for anything. The air doesn't care how much friction is on the o rings when it cycles the gun. As long as it isn't feeling like anything is scraping.

And yeah the trilogy 4way is serviceable and fine but it remains the chief disadvantage​ to the trilogy. Besides that I'd argue they are better than traditional cockers in every way. The body design allowing proper threaded feednecks is a huge bonus.

If they came out 6 years before they did they would have been a sensation. Too little too late innovation wise from wgp.

A few swipes with wet 800, 1000, and 1200 is all I ever really do, then use the polishing compound. You probably won't gain anything from doing it unless you really take your time setting the stock LPR, or unless you get an externally adjustable LPR. Even then it's not like I'd suggest tearing the ram apart just to do it. I normally only do while I'm replacing a ram oring.

Why does Belsales, CCM, and other manufactures even bother polishing their parts if it doesn't help? I'm not saying that it's going to lower your his cocking pressure by 20 psi or some other wild claim. I'm just saying it can help take a little friction off the ram. Less friction means faster acceleration of the backblock, more acceleration means more force when the backblock hits the cocking rod, and more force can possibly lead to less pressure being required from the LPR.

Evil bolts are 2k length, so as long as you are using the stock block or standard 2k block you will be fine.
