I have a 9mm so I don't have experience with a 45 caliber. The only issue seems to be that 45 magazine has had issues with nose dives.PT24/7 PRO said:mine is a PT24/7 PRO .45 cal.. im new with this FA. i would like to know what are the pros and cons about it. will somebody give me some advise? thanks!
Hey now, I went through 2 boxes of 40 Cal, Fired 2 12g shotguns and was playing with a 22 and a Charles Daly 45!Vismin said:Wow Bulldog...you sure think highly of 'em. :thumb:
Put a drop of fine metal polish on the ramp and buff it with a small polishing wheel until it is slick again.247pro45 said:The only problem i have had with my .45 is when i get about 100 rounds into continuosly shooting, the feed ramp seems to get dirty and it SOMETIMES starts to cause nosedives. I think it is the feed ramp cause once it starts happening, i clean the feed ramp with some solvent and brush it to a shine and it is back to shootin flawless. I can trust it as a carry weapon because the feed ramp obviously wont be dirty while im carrying it (unless for some reason i get into a gun fight :shooter: haha and i end up using a butt load of ammo somehow considering i will only carry 24 rounds on me, nor do i believe this would EVER happen.) Anyways, small problem that is easily fixed. Other than that, this gun ROCKS! you will deffinately be happy with your purchase!
Wont it end up just gettin dirty again after about 100 rounds? Or does the polish act kind of as a protectant? Either way, it will deffinately help with the issue, thanks for the great advice Bulldog!!!TheBulldog said:Put a drop of fine metal polish on the ramp and buff it with a small polishing wheel until it is slick again.
That will end your 100 round feed ramp issue.
Yes I know they are polished from the factory, but this does help as it gives a final finished polish.
