I pulled the bolt and trigger group for cleaning, noticed the bolt had a couple dent/dimples, along with the leading edge that rides the hammer was gouged. A corresponding area on the hammer has a gouge/dent from the bolt.
I stoned both areas smooth and broke the sharp edge on the leading edge of the bolt.
Has anyone else seen this happen?

Fixed it. Charging from a hammer down position is at least 50% better. Cycles great.
Mine doesn't have the dimples but I still have to push/pull to lock the bolt to the rear. Hoping it gets easier
