    Be careful with those my friend. I haven't seen on of those in years, but they used to be made out of stainless steel, which even with the unique design of the brush can still scour a barrel.

    Pics of the barrel will help, Glock and brake free clp are the best friends.
    Always use the the Glock brush with clp to apply a light coat of it on the barrel, simple as that!

    Nickel doesn't react well with some solvents.

    Any time I use bore solvents I alway hose it out with brake cleaner and let it completely dry.
    For a barrel you can leave the bore dry or some will take 1 patch with light oil down it once or twice. I typically will run one patch with oil down in then another patch dry behind it to insure I dont have oil that accumulated any were in there.

    Never lubricate the chamber, or somehow leave it wet or damp with H20. Maybe a Navy SEAL can get away with it, but an mere mortal like you :whistling:, ah, not so much.

    That said, many years ago an ever so brief acquaintance at the local range, who prided himself on being the resident 1911 guru, revealed a 'ballistic secret' he claimed to have discovered that involved leaving a 'slight' amount of oily film in the chamber after thoroughly cleaning his Colt. He would lightly 'swab' the chamber with an oily Q-tip.

    A slight amount of lube, he claimed, 'increases the velocity of the first round fired' and 'afterward ensures reliable chambering of the remaining rounds.'

    :headscratch: Another reason I avoid Kool-aide .... :upeyes:

    After reading these posts about "cleaning" that people do (or don't do) on their Glocks I now am glad I never consider used Glocks.

    [​IMG] That's pretty funny stuff right there.

    Seriously, OP just clean the barrel and drive on. I wouldn't bother sending it to Glock.

    After using solvent and wiping dry run an oiled patch through the bore then several dry patches. That will neutralize any solvent residue and provide a little corrosion protection to the bore. As long as it's wiped dry there won't be enough oil residue to negatively affect the chambered round.

    I use Slip2000, Carbon comes right off, and when clean, I run a slight damp patch town the barrel.. Been doing this for years with no issues.

    Yep, that's rust.

    Not sure what your cleaning regimen consists of, bur I'd suggest you familiarize yourself with the cleaning and maintenance section of your owner's manual.

    Cap'n Obvious here, Hoppes is a degreaser. Humidity causes rust. I read my manuals to see what to clean and type of solvent. All indicate CLP and grease.

    I only use Hoppes when shooting lead. Not necessary with plated bullets.

    Older firearms do need Hoppes because of the type of steel used.
