Yes, With JHP's especially but only on the initial insert mag/pull back slide. after that, no problems. Gun is FNP-9Ti Carry said:Sounds cool with the Cratex but I would recommend "not" polishing the feed ramp to a mirror finish but just a nice polish, you can over do it!
Are you having trouble with feeding? And what gun are we talking about?
Just my .02, but I've found that in the past I have tended to ease the slide back into position on the first round rather than let it slam home ... as would happen on subsequent rounds.FNP-9er said:Yes, With JHP's especially but only on the initial insert mag/pull back slide. after that, no problems.

Here, Here! Slaming the slide closed will also beat the crap out of your extractor and you will find yourself replacing it before to long.Ride4TheBrand said:Just my .02, but I've found that in the past I have tended to ease the slide back into position on the first round rather than let it slam home ... as would happen on subsequent rounds.
Exactly, I am talking chambered round slaming!P95Carry said:Ti - not trying to be pedantic but - if round is picked up, stripped off mag - then, extractor is ''pre-engaged'' on rim - which should be no probs. ''Sling-shotting'' the slide is a good way to ensure guaranteed battery - no different from regular cycling.
If however a round is pre-chambered and then slide dropped hard then yeah - I'd agree about extractor - because it has to harshly encounter and go round the case. Stressing it excessively.
Chris is right..... I also use the Simachrome after using a Dremmel, along with a ultra fine wheel/ tool on the Dremmel... Using the fine grit tools will allow you to get some of that roughness out of the ramp. Take the Barrel out and do the job........then build it up to a shine, using th epolishing compounds..P95Carry said:A Dremel with small felt mop wheel and some impregnated Simichrome will when applied to feedramp buff it to quite a shine. However, if no actual roughness chances are the benefit will only be very minimal.
I'm afraid I'm having trouble understanding. Are you talking about manually placing a single round in the chamber, through the ejection port, then releasing the slide (on the chambered round), then inserting the magazine? Does anyone actually do this?Ti Carry said:This is why I dis-agree with some manufactures that advertise 6+1 or 7+1 or whatever on a semi-auto hand gun. It gives the impression that it is o.k. to load a round in the chamber and also have a full magazine loaded with 6 or 7 rounds whatever it holds and slame the slide home on a round.
Ignorance. Not the malicious kind, just the "I really didn't know" kind. A friend once loaded a round that way in my Commander. I politely corrected him because he really didn't know. Personally I have no problems loading guns with external extractors this way. Internal extractors aren't so forgiving.Bruces45 said::buttkick: Why on gods green earth would anyone do it like that .
