Scratches in GP barrel.
I just bought a GP at a gun show for $365, and it passed the revolver checkout; at least I thought. When I was at the gun show I looked down the barrel and it was super clean; however, when I got it home I noticed it has scratches inside the tip of the barrel that are hard to see unless you hold it a certain way.
I assume someone pushed a cleaning rod too hard and scratched it up. I took it to a local gun shop, and he said it was probably just cosmetic, but I am still uneasy.
The whole barrel is very clean except for the the tip that has scratches. Is this something to worry about? Would it effect the accuracy of the gun? I have not shot the gun yet. What do I do?
I do not have camera at this time, or I would post pics.
