A lot of the "wear" I see on the Browning breech faces is really not wear. To me, it appears that moisture has gotten on the face and caused them to pit. I see the same with many TM-1 also.

I'm sure many know that during those hot humid days of shooting, that alot of condensation forms in your chambers while shooting. Not getting it wiped out ASAP after shooting, the gun now sits in a rack maybe for a few hours and the condenced moisture runs down onto the receiver's breech face...even into the firng pin hole. Eventually, we all know what will happen.

Many here on this site say when their done shooting, they just wipe the gun down...maybe swab the bore. Then the gun sits in the long case in a corner until the following weekend.
