Hey, when I use a Dremel to polish a ramp, (only done it to 2 of my 9 HP pistols) I just use the bullet shaped buffing tool, and some polishing rouge...not much chance of removing too much (if any) metal.

So does it need to be silver or just super smooth? I buffed mine with some really fine paper and it's smooth, but still black but silver in the middle where the bullets go.

Actually it just needs to be smooth enough to work properly..... but I smoothed mine until the black paint was gone and there was a mirror shine that I could shave in.

Phat Mike showed me a pic of a 1911 where someone had taken a dremmel to the feed ramp and ruined it to the point where they were going to have to machine out the ramp and install a replacement ramp made for such cases.


That was going to cost some coin to fix.......
It was supposedly a gunsmith that did that.

Not saying it happens every time, but it can happen. That is why if you are not 100% comfortable with your ability with a dremmel, its best to be a chicken shit and do it the wimpy way.

One thing I have noticed over the years at the saiga forum is the guys that come in looking for help after they screw things up trying to mod their weapon.

Just saying :dunno:

That is a universal guy thing... :yes2:

And I went down to a silver thread in the middle, polished very smooth all up and down the ramp.

And there ain't nothing wrong with using a finger and sandpaper...but I had a new tool, and had to try it out. :whistle:

I polish ramps the same way. I used to use the finest abrasive cloth I had and didn't use power tools. Then I tried the bullet shaped felt tip and rouge -- faster and I like the results a lot better. Using sandpaper or a stone with a power tool is working hard to a mistake that will be hard to fix.

Don't worry about offending me, either.


You have to care about someone before their opinion is important enough to matter.
