Your one FTF probably had nothing to do with your feed ramp.
If you had a feed ramp problem - you would have a ton more failures to feed.
Initially some extractors are a bit too tight with edges that are a bit too sharp.
You just need to shoot it a bit more and break in that extractor.

Get a highly-magnified look at your ramp. Just because it doesn't shine does NOT mean the surface is rough. It may simply mean that the relatively fresh annodizing doesn't reflect light very well. It may be as smooth & slick as you can ask or need. "Big mouth" bullets are not going to (well, shouldn't) groove the ramp in any particular fashion. First, run more ammo. Second, find a 'Smith who knows the 1911 like a Bo-Weevil knows cotton. You'll both be happy!
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

The defender is all custom and was recoated in sniper grey CEREKOTE. The ramp was not polished because the gunsmith felt that it could do more harm then good and if it ever NEEDS to be done in the future. The barrel is throated and crowned plated in nickle Teflon.
