I think there is a crack in my Glock's barrel, how would that happen it's like NIB almost!
Are you sure it's a crack and not a scratch? Can you post a picture of the barrel showing the crack?
Perhaps it is your thought process that is cracking.
Where is the "crack"?
If it really is a crack, send the barrel it to Glock for free replacement.
It's probably a machine flaw or a scratch, but who knows without pictures.
It's inside on the bore following right next to the rifling.
Does it go all the way though??
Either way, you should call Glock and send it in.
Try getting the lead out.
I've never shot bare lead in the gun, I passed the Glock cleaning rod and brush down the bore more than a few times thinking it was something stuck in there, it's the barrel.
I hear ya; but I really don't think so. This has nothing to do with shooting bare lead; but that's a topic for another thread. Try this: Soak the barrel overnight in a solvent like: Break-Free, Weapon Shield, Kroil, or Ballistol. The next morning use a phosphor-bronze brush to scrub out the barrel. (I'd make, at least, a dozen fast all the way through and all the way back passes.)
Glock barrels are mandrel-formed; so you're not looking at a cutting button or broach scratch. A crack forming along the rifling of a mandrel-formed barrel would be, as I said, extremely rare.
Personally, after I use a solvent on my pistol barrels I follow up with Flitz Metal Polish and a series of cotton patches. I've had lead smears and guilding metal streaks along the, 'rifling' of my Glock barrels. It can look and, sometimes, behave like a barrel crack; but, after a good soaking and scrub it always comes out. I've had spots that looked like metal chips, too. Same thing! They will clean up and polish out.
Good advice. SJ 40
Do you mean that it follows the helical shape of the rifling all the way along the bore?
It probably only follows a few millimeters, not all the way through.
The Lewis Lead Remover will do an excellent job:
hardest ive laughed all day
Here's a link to a picture http://flic.kr/p/cKzRgQ This is looking from the muzzle end.
Hard to tell form the pictures.
However I don't think it's a crack/
I think it's something in the barrel.
To be on the safe side call Glock and send it in.
If we're talking about that small black spot then, yes, you might have something there. Let me ask you this: If you run a wire coat hanger with a small right angle bend at the end, and a diagonally cut tip down the barrel, will the sharp diagonal tip go into a hole of some sort? If it does then, yes, the barrel should go back to Glock.
Could that crack/crease affect the accuracy?
