    Start with 800 then 1000. Finish off with flitz polish.

    Stroke it in & out, up & down. ;f

    ;z ;z ;z Me up and down pa! Dre kung ako sa 'yo dalhin mo na lang sa gunsmith yan baka magsisi ka lang. Dala ka na rin ng bala na pangsukat. IIRC, binigyan ko lang ng isang kahang Marlboro yung gunsmith nung pina polish ko yung sa akin dati. Yun lang kasi hiningi nyang bayad!;f

    tama si sir gunfool putik, dalhin mo nalang sa gunsmith baka sumablay pa gawa mo. tsaka matigas bakal ng Norinco baka manggigil ka sa tigas baka kanain mo ng dremel, yari yung boga mo.;f ;)

    why polish the feed ramp? Are you having problems with your gun? If you do, let the experience of a gunsmith do it for you. The thing here is you just polish, if you are a bit new to the gunmsithing thing, the polishing may become "reshaping." Sayang naman

    Disagree with using sandpaper.
    Sandpaper can be a little harsh, leaving linear gouges.
    Just use fine steel wool and repetition on DRY steel,
    and you'll get a mirror finish.

    The item has to be dry, so that the steel fibres and dust can be easily cleaned up with a magnet.

    That said... I'd echo Valor1's question:
    What need for polishing?
