I once (twice, actually) polished off all the finish from a Fed Ord lightweight frame to get a bright (to match SS slide) gun. It was a lot of work, starting with 320 grit and working down through #600 and then Flitz. The anodizing was much thicker and tougher than I expected.Charlie Petty said::? :?
I don't agree with Snake on any polishing even with the finest grit because the coating is very thin. Otherwise polishing would be the first thing to try.
We don't care about that. Your original question and the matter under discussion is polishing the ramp portion of the frame. Sounds like the ramp/barrel relationship is good, so leave the barrel out of the pic for better clarity (and take the slide off).Retmsgt. said:I was trying to snap some so you guys could see the ramp/throat relationship. It's fitted right, 1/32nd. of an inch between the ramp and the base of the throat.
