So who's done one on their Taurus? I know it's a term more commonly mated with Kel-Tecs, but I'm curious as to who's attempted one on their Taurus. Did it make any difference? What areas did you polish?

I polished my feed ramp with a dremmel and sanded a few "high spots" on my PT111 and PT145. I was having a few FTF's on my PT145 before the feed ramp polishing and haven't had once since.

I polished the feed ramp and wire brushed off the slide rails. Had a few FTFs on my 92 and the slide rails well the bluing was wearing off from the motion of the slide anyway, I guess I was bored and helped it along a little, both were done by hand.

Hi all! I have been reading these forums in anticipation of getting a PT145. I have seen buffing mentioned and was wondering can this be done using a dremel and the soft white attachment's? If not how can it be done. Thanks!

Well my dremel set has those with some metal polish paste. I would assume you would need to smooth things out a bit that way. But with the plated ramp, I would assume lightly with caution.

It took a little longer to do it by hand, I've always heard that dremels and feed ramps make for bad juju if someone doesn't watch it. I'm left handed and my right hand wasn't very steady when I did it. (Left was in a cast at the time)

Why would you need to polish the feed ramp on the pt145. Im just curiouse is all. Mine came new with a very nice polish allready done to it. Is this not normal for these guys,

There were no visible imperfections on my feed ramp, but it seemed most, if not all, of my FTF's were getting caught on the bottom part of the feed ramp. So, I decided to try and smooth it out a little to see if it helped, which it did.
