    Ultra Carry II and HP's

    So far I had only put FMJ ammo through my UCII and the other day at the range I tried some JHP's and it wouldn't rack the slide. The first round would catch on the ramp. After re-racking and a little finesse I could get it to chamber but then after firing the next round would do the same thing. Tried a different brand with the same results. What's the fix? Polish the ramp?

    HELP!!

    I did a little polishing this morning and it will now chamber the HP round. I'll probably do some more this evening and try it this weekend at the range.

    My CDP II came with a mirror for a feed ramp and I've never had a problem with any ammo, HP's or otherwise. With most new guns, I do an initial feed ramp polish during the initial cleaning and prior to its first range session. I use 1200 grit sand paper, then some Mother's chrome and metal polish.

    I worked on it some more last night and it's much better but not perfect. Then I starting thinking it might be the mag. Of the 3 that I have for it the one I was using was a Wilson Combat so I switched to a Kimber mag (re-built with Wilson spring and follower) and it cycled by hand just as smooth as you could ask. Not sure if there is a problem with the Wilson, but for now it's demoted to range duty.

    After the second round of polishing both mags fed HP's without issue today. I guess a little love is all it needed.
