Confused on Ramps




Well Im knee deep in my Caspian build, everything has been great so far and I need insight on barrel ramps. My frame was cut for a Clark/Para Ramp.....so do I need a ramped barrel or would a non-ramped barrel be ok? Do I need to be concerned with unspported cases at this point? It will be in 45acp.

Same you need a ramped barrel.They may make an insert to fill the cut out but I do not know for sure?It possiable to make one but probably not worth it.Call Clarke's they might have something like that.

90% of all aftermarket barrel manufactures will list their barrels as no ramp, Wilson/Nowlin ramp, or Clark/Para ramp. They are out their and fairly easy to find.

The ramp insert thing is not intended to take up the space from the cut. Its ment to repair a alloy framed gun that's had its GI frame ramp damaged.

The frame insert is secured by a screw that is hidden by the slide stop.

Schuemann Barrels

I have used Schuemann barrels in a couple of my builds. One of them used the Clark/Para style of barrel ramp.
Their quality is GREAT but they are a bit more expensive than some of the options from Brownells.
Good luck!
P.S. You can order directly from Schuemann via their website.

Schuemann barrels are spectacular, Ted Yost used one of their AET models on a Delta Elite he did for me and it was a beepin' laser.

Here's what a Scheumann Ulitmatch ramped barrel does in an Accu-railed officer frame.Your mileage may vary. This gun in .38 Super.
