Hi Power Feed Ramp

Would a 1989 production Browning have the newest style feed ramp configuration?

Hello damajret, The '89 has the straight feed ramp, but not the "newest" type. The newest type barrels eliminated the little metal projection at the top rear of the chamber and are throated more extensively than the '89 era guns. Especially noticeable around the circumference of the chamber entrance.

I attached an old photo of, from left to right, the '89, '93, and '02 feed ramps.

Hi, any idea why they eliminated the "little projection" on the barrel. Cost savings or ? regards, Mike

I'm not sure there has ever been a consensus on what it was for in the first place. As to why it was eliminated, I strongly suspect that was just to eliminate a machining step...
