O-rings are easy since they're all standard and pierce seals as well. Sharpening the sear should work, you just want to use a nice flat stone and focus only on the small back surface, and not changing the angle, just keeping the same angle and removing only as much material as is necessary. How many times you can do this before the sear is no good, I have no idea.

It does have the added benefit of making the trigger pull smoother, just like a good trigger job on a real steel pistol.
Okay, I'll try sharpening it. Should I sharpen from the sides, or on the top/bottom as well
