How is this for an idea: If you suspect your aluminum frame has a worn out feed ramp, get a batch of steel or bronze filled epoxy and repllace what you think is worn away. It might take a little filing to get it right and we KNOW this won't be a permanent repair, but it should confirm whether the issue is a worn out feed ramp or something else.

Thoughts?

it might be worth looking into, just to see what the problem is. for somebody who doesn't want to shell out for gunsmithing, but it'll still need to be fixed anyway.

personally i'm committed to just tear out the old and go with steel ramp!
and keep using my plastic followers
