I did the feedramp, breech face, and chamber. On the chamber and breech face I did all the work manualy just to make sure I didn't take any metal away.

I did it by hand with very fine ( I think it was 1600 grit) sand paper and steel wool.

Alot of people have used a dremel you just have to be carefull. I used a dowel for the ramp and chamber and a popcycle stick for the breech face.

dremel buffing wheel and jewlers rouge plus my bro is a former jewler and had some trick rubber polishing bits that work wonderful to polish but the buffing pad and rouge works wonderful.. both of my 2 and my partners have a nice mirror finish on feed ramp sears ect.. all your old school smiths will tout to never use a dremel tool of any type on any gun part but you just need common sence and patence something we are in short supply of these days.. just my .02 worth

If you polish the sear, don't remove any metal! I am told that that could create an unsafe condition. I opted to not mess with it, it is slowly polishing itself anyway.
