    Kimber Alloy Feed Ramp Repair

    I had a CDP ProII that I had bought used on Auction Arms awhile back that had the feed ramp butchered by some shade tree gunsmith. Finally got around to sending it to Jim at Innovative Custom Guns in Pennsylvania to have an EGW steel feed ramp insert installed. Received it back today and thought some of you might like to see the before and after pics. Haven't got to shoot it yet, but will tomorrow and will let everyone know how it works.

    Took it out and ran it through the paces this morning. Shot 200gr lead SWC, 230gr ball and 200gr XTP HP and the ramp performed great. Now this gun can get put in carry rotation eventually.

    EGW did a great job for you and that is a perfect pictorial example of how the barrel should be positioned to the frame feed ramp.

    Mind if I save that "after" photo into my computer gun pics files to use for future reference?

    QKShooter, your more than welcome to save that picture. Jim from Innovative Custom Guns used to work for EGW then went out on his own from what I understand. If you look at the EGW website he's the guy they recommend to do the job though. As the picture proves he does excellent work.
