slightly rough gun

revolver, if you have chambers or a forcing cone that are slightly ruff. Say you have concentric rings running down them, it wont actually hurt accuracy but does increase clean up.

SO would using somewhat abrasive compounds like jb bore paste or remington 40-x help smooth them out over time?

Hi, I don't want to make you laugh because this may seem funny but it really does work especially for stainless. Toothpaste. It is by nature mildly abrasive. Good luck. Marty

Depending on how bad it is, I'd take it to "my guy" (the local gunsmith I trust) and he could hone them out to clean them up. He does it for $15.00 and I don't have to mess with it...

I've done the same for a rifle chamber and a 7MM TCU Contender barrel I owned years ago.

I don't do it myself as I have a tendency to "over do" power tools.

I have chamber reamers and finishing reamers that I use by hand to clean the chambers when it becomes necessary.
