    Hi ¡¡

    boys, these images are the barrel of my g17 rtf.

    can the Tenifer flake?

    I already try all methods and not lead.
    Only happens at the top of the rifling,

    hmmm from the very last picture, Ie the top one looks like common copper fouling to me.. the tenifer is a treat ment and not a coating it goes into the pores of the metal a few mills. could be the pick itself, But if it was pitting it would be all around the barrel not just the top since the brush is cylindrical

    Looks just like gilding metal transfer from bullets. Try soaking in Butch’s Bore shine or a little scrub with JB Bore Paste. Nothing to worry about. And I would loose the drill. It has no place in cleaning a bore. It just makes the bristles fold up and jump over the lands and miss most of the groove ( Polygonal rifling for the Glock ) , not to mention the risk of twisting the brush off in the bore.

    By the way, very good macro photos.

    Noticed something similar in a glock barrel of mine and wondered the same thing. In mine I think it was just fouling though as it looked better after a good cleaning. Still some there though.

    Thanks ¡¡ JBS

    yes, Use the drill is not a good idea, I know

    but, nothing seems to remove

    So I thought that "something" started to flake in there

    I use Butch's, knew the man, great Benchrester. I got some of his fist product before he started to sell it commercially. It now belongs to Lyman Inc. I use it the way he did. Wipe out bore with patch till all the big stuff is gone. Then soak bore with a bore mop wet with Butch's. Set on bench and go to bed.

    Next day wipe bore out with patch. Bore should be spotless. Notice no brush used. I have a bunch of match barrels that have never had a bore brush in them and are spotless as seen with a Hawkeye bore scope.

    Alternate way for removable pistol barrels is to fill a tall olive jar with Butch's and just put the barrel in to soak over night. Next day wipe it out with a patch.

    What ever copper solvent you use give it time for the chemical to work. CLP types are not the best at removing gilding metal streaks. Here is a good test sight reviewing a host of bore solvents.
