Jason, can you describe what you’re looking for on the feed ramp? The nicks to all line up straight?

Here is what I see and am looking for in that photo.... feed-ramp is proper depth to pick up the top round in an 8 and 10 round magazine. If you look close you should be able to count 10 separate impact marks in the fouling on the feed-ramp. During range testing I shoot a significant number of single shots that are fed from the top round in a 10rd magazine; i.e. chamber a round then top the magazine off and shoot a single shot, and repeat. Ideally I would like all the rounds to track up the middle. As you look at the barrel throat you will see with the round impacts and rolls over into the chamber; also centered.

Why yes indeed! :?: How do you get the gold inlay to stay in the cut? Undercut? Adhesive? Prayer? :lol:
