    Considering buying this one. Am I too OCD here...or is it all unequal and not centered? Pistol suppose to be feeding FMJ with no issues, but it kinda makes me wonder...if this will require some work or not (except for maybe polishing the ramp a bit more)? It's a long time discontinued model, so it's not like I can just buy another one. What do You Guys think? Thanks.

    That's Imbel from Brazil, sold a while ago by Springfield under GI name.

    If you are still considering it, put the barrel on the frame with its pin and put it in the linked down position to see if the feed ramp is salvageable. The internet has lots of pictures of the appropriate relationship between the two.

    The N frames are definitely not pretty. I've owned a few. A decent 1911 smith could clean it up.

    It's probably factory. Here's an N I had several years ago.

    more i look at it the more funny it gets; can picture in mind exactly how it went down - things just kind of got away from him at some point. his angle of approach is about 1 to 7 o'clock, rofl...

    The whole internal frame looks shoty, did I miss the model type? I hope that some garage smithing instead of a manufactures finished product.

    Thank you again. I think it's factory. Dude seems like a good fellow. This is made in Brazil Springfield GI. I'm not buying it after thinking a bit about the others, possible issues.

    cant of linear grooves seem consistent across entire ramp so reckon that could be it. would think that'd be pretty difficult to pull off with dremel? maybe just lighting, but at first thought it looked kind of like a subtle channel where more pressure was applied just to right of what appears to be the remains of a lateral gouge.

    It would have to be cheap. And I would have to fire a couple mags of mixed ammo. Heavy on JHP, semiwadcutters, softball ammo...
