    Interesting

    Just my opinion on this but if a Colt or Colt clone pistol has trouble feeding some brands of ammo due to the bullet nose configuration...then probably the safest thing to do might be to copy a bit of the "dimple" that is used on the newer Colt barrel throats & that (in combination with a lightly polished ramp) should allow the cartridge nose to drop a little lower on entry during feeding cycle.

    This morning I polished the barrel throat and frame feedramp with a felt nosed dremel fitting and emery paste...got a nice mirror look to them.
    Went to the shooting range and put 50 rounds of Winchester Lawman hollowpoints through it, and had zero feed problems. Will try more hollowpoints and hope that the feed problem is solved.

    Yippeee!

    While you have the Dremel out

    Ya might also want to do a very light polish of the breech face.
    If it's already smooth then don't bother doing anything to it.
    The easier the tail end of the cartridge rides up against the breech face...the easier the round will chamber.

    We need to hear more comments like this from Colt firearms, seems like they have gotten a bad rep lately.

    Good tip, QK. I will look at it tomorow.
