    Does a small amount of pitting in the boore of a shotgun barrel mean anything for just a knock around shotgun? Thanks

    Will not affect performance. But the condition should be treated before it becomes a problem. HMB

    How do you treat the pitting? Clean and oil? Is there any way to fill it?

    The bbl would need to be honed, then polished, to remove the pitting.
