Polishing parts


I did my 101 and it seemed to smooth out the triger a bit. I tried to get my cm9 to feed better by doing what you mention but it didn't help much. I used a dremel and jewelers rouge. Give it try, cant hurt.

As long as you doing your sp101 ya might as well get the spring kit for it. Lightened the pull a lot.

Ceracote looks great, but what did you do to the barrel?
I guess the picture doesn't show it very well, but it's polished and really looks nice with the slide cut on the 34. I thought I had a better angle of it but I guess I must have deleted it.
jist picked up a jar of mother’s mag polish.i want to give my 1911 a once over in the feed ramp to hopefully smooth it out.before I get to it does anyone have any advice or maybe a good video to watch. I also read something about polishing the internals of my sp101. Anyone here done that?thanks guys.
Polishing compound is not necessary for a feed ramp. As long as its smooth, that's all that is required. If there's machining marks, don't try to erase them, they won't cause any problems...just smooth them.

The 1911 is a controlled feed style pistol, it relies on a bit of resistance for round control.
