Did you try a brass barrel brush yet ? I am tempted to say put a few rounds through it but i have not seen the pictures. If it is pitting start a warranty claim now .Strange as it may sound a good machinist can feel irregularity's using a cleaning rod etc if it is deep in the bore [depth wise]

You should try something that actually cleans the bore, like Boretech Eliminator, and set the “hopps” aside.

Looks like copper fouling from being test fired. Run a few patches of KG-12 or other copper solvent through it.

Try cleaning with a nylon bore brush not a brass brush ive seen a perfectly clean pistol barrel become completely copper streaked after brass brush was passed through.

I have a brass bore brush but i do not think i have ever heard of a copper brush plus i doubt a nylon brush would remove much of anything.

I’ll try to be as nice as possible, but there’s no such thing as a brass bore brush. They’re most commonly phosphor bronze, which looks similar to copper.

Copper is not removed from a bore mechanically, it’s removed chemically by dissolving it into a copper solvent. These modern copper solvents are so powerful, they will disintegrate a bronze bore brush in one use.

The solution to that is to use a nylon brush, and all that’s doing is helping loosen the carbon, which is removed mechanically, so the solvents can attack the copper more effectively.

To add to that ammonia based solvents like Hoppes or Sweets don't play well with chrome. If left in contact for long enough it can etch chrome.

Good lord i bet he regrets posting over there........seems they have much different moderators there ,that poor guy got pounded . I wonder if he will ever be back,i didn't read each post but the last i read from him is its better /cleaner.......and thank you

As far as moderation, that is GD so anything goes. If you don't want a pounding there don't ask a dumb question then act like you know a lot

I doubt OP will be gone, he's posted about 200 million threads in GD on other stuff. He just has no idea how an AK works or what is normal, and does appear to be very OCD about stuff. GD loves people like that
