I'll confess, I don't have my HiPoint JHP yet. A local chain up the road has JHP's for $130 and in a week from the now, the doc is going to release me back to working at the hospital so I'll have the $$$$ to get one. Until then, I'm reading up and enviously watching YouTube videos of those that do. One of the things that I regularly see/hear commented that the feeding ramp needs to polished to rid it off the factory coating that gets equally applied to it. My question is: ¿Has anyone tried a spot application of a paint remover to the feed ramp area to remove this coating? My planned approach is to disassemble to remove slide to allow easy access to the feed ramp invert receiver and clamp it upside down so that paint stripper doesn't drip/run down into the frame spot apply a paint stripper only to the feed ramp area with a Qtip, remove paint stripper clean area and inspect polish with a very fine grit to clean up any roughness exposed after the coating is removed. If so, what was the results? Linkage to the thread or YouTube video would be much appreciated.
