OK, this is a Randall Raider which is one of two the owner bought because they were "rare". The Raider he wants a full make over. Look at the fine work someone has done to this feed ramp an barrel bed. There should be a law to cover this hack job. So I have two paths I guess. EGW feed ramp insert ot a ramped barrel. Its a .45 so the ramped barrel does not sound like my first choice. WWJD?....................( What Would Jerry Do?)

Dr. DREMEL and Mr. MIG have been messin' around there! If the owner wants to keep it original, maybe send the frame down to Jim Milks to properly weld it. I seem to recall that they were advertised as being 17-4 PH SS. I had a Lemay model many years ago.

That's so ugly in so many places that I don't think an EGW insert would make it all right... at least not to the level of quality you're known for Mr. Derr. As suggested by Mr. Bill, it seems like precision welding and re-machining would be the best course of action.

Best of luck with it...

If you try to get that frame back to blueprint, you will own this guy if you charge what you're worth.

EWWWW! That is as bad as I have ever seen. ( Not that I have seen that much...)
Is horse whipping illegal in this case?

That thing deserves a closed casket funeral.
I'm thinking of the old story about chicken salad.
