A Simple Semi-Auto Trick

DSC_0016

Yesterday, my husband grabbed one of his Glock pistols and polished the feeding ramp on it. I didn’t think much of it but after getting my Kimber 45 out to clean it I realized that it too could use a little TLC. This polishing is very simple and will theoretically help prevent feeding problems as well as facilitate easier cleaning. We took some photos of the process as well as some before and after photos in case any of you were interested in how we did it. After field stripping my Kimber and cleaning it as I usually would, I took a Dremel tool and fitted a soft bristle brush attachment to it. I softly ran that bit along the ramp to clean off any remaining dirt. I then changed the Dremel bit to a soft polisher and after putting a little polishing agent on it I continued to run that along the ramp until it shined. I cleaned it all well with a soft cloth to remove any left over agent. It was that simple!

  1. That looks simple enough that I could do it. 🙂

    Just one minor suggestion: If you’re going to be working with the Dremel, I suggest putting your hair into a pony tail. 10 seconds of fiddling may save you a lot of pain.

    Thanks for the pictures!
