    What can be done about pitting in the barrels of a shotgun?
    Option 1 :Leave it alone....The cup wad takes care of it.
    Option 2 : Have it sleeved.
    Option 3 : Re-polish/hone it. If so who does it best? Will it go out of proof?

    Any information will be appreciated.

    option #3, yourself.
    buy a Brownells barrel hone,"flex hone",coarse grit,follow directions supplied.

    If its a high dollar gun,the pitting most likely aint that bad,but then again if not inclined to do so,and tend to muck things up,let a pro do it.

    If its deep pitted,a light backbore is in the cards.

    I would call Stu Wright.

    I have the uncanny ability to make a bad situation worse.
