I hate myself so much it's unreal

Bought new in 2022. Let rust find it's way somehow in the barrel. Cleaned it. Now it's picrel pitted. This is just a Glock, but it is by far my favorite material possession. God I hate myself. What do you think, /k/ ? Meaning about the pitting inside my barrel.

        That is precisely what the importer told me : "they can't rust, they are made to shoot underwater, your story basicaly never happened". Still, here it is, with that small but visible scratch/piiting inside the barrel. Does /k/ knows how it could affect shooting ? Does it makes the gun less reliable, unsafe even ?

          Nitriding is a very very good anti corrosion treatment.

          I'm afraid it won't do : as far as I know, as a foreigner, you can't buy shit in another eurocountry. Your papers have value in your own country according to it's own laws ; they worth nothing outside. I couldn't pass the background check doing that in the US as a euro : it's the same thing in Europe, foreigner remains a foreigner.

            >I couldn't pass the background check doing that in the US as a euro
            But that's the thing and what I assume the other anon is getting at: in the US at least, a barrel isn't a firearm. There is no background check, no requirements of any kind whatsoever, no records. You can order online and have it arrive in your mailbox. Firearm parts aren't firearms, if you have the gun already repairs aren't something the law cares about. So yes, if you were in the US you could just go get a barrel, or muzzle brake or trigger pack or whatever, you don't need any ID even so the whole issue never comes up. Doesn't matter if you're foreign or not.
            >it's the same thing in Europe, foreigner remains a foreigner.
            Right but for a part that simply isn't regulated at all why would they care if you're a foreigner or not? Or are you saying barrels are regulated in the entirety of Europe?

              Oh, alright ok thx for that input. I did not know I could buy a barrel alone by going to any US gunstore as a foreigner. I thought background check was mandatory for everything. Sadly, I can't have it shipped to my door from the US, you guys don't do that anymore.
              >Or are you saying barrels are regulated in the entirety of Europe?
              Just checked for couple minuts : as far I can see, UK, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, Netherlands : all regulated. You have to be from the country, with all papers set.

                We probably never were supposed to. Tons and tons of shit that is completely unregulated domestically is controlled for export, though that's true of every country. Gun barrels specifically would probably fall under some sort of arms related thing, nobody wants literal enemies ordering from the US, but looking around the world can be true of literal basic commodities too, certain minerals or even food may be considered strategic. Can't draw and inference on domestic law from that though.

                Knowing absolutely nothing about EU gun law except vaguely remembered stuff on /k/, my guess would have been looking to eastern europe not western like your list. They're the ones that tend to have more free gun laws period. I'm not surprised from your list of rich old western ones, also UK wouldn't even do you any good since they're not in the EU or Schengen at all but also have always been the most absolutely controlled period. I'd be more looking at the likes of all the ones bordering Russia, maybe even the nordics. Granted that'd be a much longer trip. Anyway good luck.

      That doesn't look like pitting, just a defect in the coating. That black stuff will wear off in multiple places over time. If you're dealing with Euro laws, stainless barrels seem to be the obvious choice for the future.

          Yeah this is your problem. Ballistol is great and I use it a lot, but purely for cleaning. It's cheap and very low toxicity. But it's not for preservation in anything less then a very friendly environment. Get a proper lube like Slip 2000 EWL or Lucas or the like, or since you're euro you can try that weird kraut's one, but something dedicated. If your gun needs to be stored longer term, you should consider actual grease.

          Ballistol is Aids Tier for storage. Do you reload your own Ammo? Last time i checked the shipping cost for france it was 11€ which is a bit expensiv to dump free shit to you, but if you want i can add you to the shipping list amd send you some nead shit in 2 weeks.

            frick finding a new product, Im sending you some custom shit. Send me a letter with 10€ to cover the 11€ shipping cost i get so im not getting poor. I would semd you Coomoil, 2 bottles or DRI and a custom mix of penetrativ light Polyalphaolefin with rust inhibitors and activ wax (bore protection for the glock). That should be worth 30€, maybe i add some Carolina Reaper seeds and hot sauce if Im bored. Im sitting on 1000s lbs of chemicals, its not hurting me at all when shipping is paid tbh.
            And about a single pitting, yesterday i learned about water cooling systhems for copper/steel and what you got might be a combination of clean bore and a single copper grain/flake sitting there which caused mixed metall corrosion = pitting
