is it having feed issues now??

if it is not having any problems i would leave it alone. polishing a working gun can turn a 100% reliable working firearm into a jam-o-matic. the only reason to make such changes is to try and fix a problem weapon.

polishing removes metal and changes feed angles and should not be done to a working firearm.

There are many things similar to Flitz. "Semi-chrome polish" is one. Go to your local auto parts store and ask for Flitz they will have it or something like it. Or use toothpaste. Or leave the ramp alone.

It not realy a problem ..well it feels like it feeds kind of rough not as smooth as my other firearms more when i pull back on the slide and chamber the first round

I have used Blue Magic Metal Polishing Cream. I just went to a auto parts place and bought it. If you have an autozone, napa or anything you'll probably find something that will do the same thing. No it's not made specifically for guns, but steel is steel. good luck
