I dropped my 1911 off at my LGS to have it made "Combat Ready" as their gunsmith puts it. This entailed a throat and polish, trigger job, spring kit and he refinished the feed ramp(I think is the term he used). He told me when I dropped it off that he had one leave the shop that he had "loading empty hulls." I thought he was exaggerating a bit, but when I walked in he had a mag loaded with four empty shells. He proceeds to slam it into 1911 and rack the slide. It. Loaded. Empty. Hulls. I'm talking it loaded them like it was nothing. He also told me to be careful with the trigger. I had him scale it, just over 3lbs. All of this was done in 10 days, with 11 guns in front of mine when I dropped it off. I couldn't be more happy. In regards to the feed ramp, he took off about an eighth of an inch of it and reshaped it. I don't have a before, but I'll attach the after.
