    I used ring lapping compound on a Dremel buffer wheel on the Montana I had, going from coarse to fine. Worked like a champ.

    Did it not come already polished? Are you having feed issues, are there tool marks present. I was just messing with a $300 dollar Ruger American and was noticing how smooth the feed ramps was from the factory. I sincerely hope that wouldn't have to be done costing what Kimbers cost.

    If it needs doin then it needs doing and Kay9Cop's method is the way I would do it......be careful if you use course compound as you can over do it.

    I use a drill with a split piece of drill rod and sandpaper. And of course if a drill works a 25000 RPM die grinder would do it better, right? It did until my 12 inch piece of drill rod being somewhat unbalanced bent sideways and was vibrating so bad I couldn't turn it off or let go of it. Someone yanked the cord out of the wall , I guess it was pretty funny....

    That would have made a good You Tube video!

    I find a wooden dowel rod actually works better than drill rod. Less mass and less vibration when it gets out of balance.
