    Any way to do that w/o filing? Any process that will fill pits, then blue or coat over for final finish to make pits dissapear?

    Milt,

    Try Mahovsky's Metalife in Penn. They might be able to help. Roy

    You cannot add material...especially on a barrel. You will need to draw file until all or most of the pitting is gone.

    You can finish the job up by bead-blasting the metal prior to the bluing or coating to camo some of the pits.
