Hi. I've inherited my dad's Ruger MkI (serial trace to 1955) and I'm having a bit of a dilemma. Once I cleaned fifty years of snot out of the thing, it won't chamber HPs. I have a lot of HPs, and would like to use them. However, the points just jam straight into the feed ramp, almost centered. Would my best course of action (assuming I want to get them working) be to weld an extension on the feed ramp, then smooth it and polish it, or is this going to be a loss? I have MIG, various metals, all kinds of tools; mechanically it doesn't confront me, I'd just like to hear someone say I'm not batshit insane to consider it. Should I have it done by an expert? Or just not done at all and live with the ammunition limitations? What say you?
