    What does this look like to you?

    Do any manufacturers coat their barrels? Could this be a buildup of wad residue? Mike.

    Maybe chrome lined barrel?

    A lot of plastic fouling in the end of that barrel. Spray it with some carb cleaner (don't get it on the stock)and use a brush to clean it out. I'll bet the forcing cone area doesn't look much better.

    You're right short it's the same. Any more opinions? Thanks, Mike.

    Yep plum full of wad crap. Probably down to super full choke by now. Or maybe super-super full cause that looks like a Perazzi barrel and was probably tight choked to begin with.

    Take a sharp thin blade knife and see if it scrapes out in nice big hunks. If so you know it is plastic. Acetone or mineral spirits will cure that mess with ease.

    Like ss said, use carb cleaner or electrical contact cleaner then a brush.

    It is just wad plastic. You need to clean your gun (but not with a knife).

    It's wad plastic stripped by your porting and catching on the less than polished properly choke section.

    Acetone, and re-polishing the choke will fix it. not much you can do about the drilled hole porting though..

    Bulge, I agree with the plastic wad fouling. I have one of those brushes...I think they're called tornado brushes?? Scrapes it right out. But the other above suggestions work, too.
