I don't see a feed ramp. I see the underside of the barrel hood and a portion of the throat, along with a part of the chamber. Is your feed ramp a part of the frame?

Okay, you edited your original post and added two more pictures. I believe you might be referring to the throat, and not the feed ramp. No gun will be perfect. There are always imperfections in the steel, and tool marks left by the machines that make the guns. In addition, the gun is test fired before it is sent out. I don't see anything dramatically wrong in your pictures. Maybe I have missed something . . .

Does the gun shoot? If it does, then it is fine.

Looks fine if it is in spec and runs great. It you want a polished chamber to the barrel to a quality smith. Ramp and throat look okay. Charring marks on brass fine for the unramped 45 barrel which are not filled supported.

I don't see anything that look like Dremel marks on the barrel. Even the very highest quality machine tools will leave some tool marks.
