Well, polished the feed ramp tonight, I used the old dremel, a green bit (soft gritty rubber), a polishing wheel, and im wierd so i used plastix (http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/product_detail.asp?T1=MEG+G12310) because i like how it works on metals all I can say is WOW :wideeyed2: The bullets literally just pop into the chamber :yay!: Now no more gritty half hearted feeding!!! To all the noobs out there I highly recommend doing this, just remember to keep the speeds low, and let the bits do the work. Thank you HPFF i've had my pistol 3 days and its already feeling like mine. Now could you guys do something about ammo prices???

I got inspired last night and took the slide off for the first time and polished the ramp. Cleaned and reassembled the gun per the take-down sticky and today at the range, the gun would not fire. No (or very little) movement in the trigger.

OK, what did I bugger-up?

[EDIT] NEVER MIND. I figured it out. The metal plate at the upper RH corner of the frame came dislodged from the sear pin. Happy, happy... joy, joy.

BTW... I made the additional mistake of polishing the ramp with the barrel still attached to the frame. I got polishing compound splatter everywhere. Now I know better and would remove the barrel completely before polisheing.
