well in over 25 years of owning 1911's since the first one, and have probably owned over 30 in that time, would you like to guess how many of them got polished feed ramps?
i'll give you a hint. it's less than one! in almost thirt years of owning pistols, i have maybe polished two pistols feed ramps to fix feed issues. i have had one 1911 that i had to have the chamber polished to feed ammo with full lead bullets. at that time i used a lot of cast lead bullet ammo for practice. i haven't used cast lead bullets in many years now.
