Ceracote

1602 9
Will ceracote fill large pits in a barrel. Have an old savage 410 that is in fair shape but the outside of the barrel is rough.the bore looks great and the gun shoots fine.just trying to make it look better. Also, does anybody have an idea of the average cost to do a barrel?

Brownell's used to sell a product called Baking Lacquer if memory serves. It's a matte finish aerosol paint that you apply then heat it in an oven.
It's pretty thick, it might cover up pitting.
I used it on a Remington 760, and it came out well. I did use our home kitchen oven and Mrs. Hornet was not happy, so beware!

Brownell's........ALUMA-HYDE II 12 oz aerosol $12.99. This is a tough finish, easy to apply. It won't fill in deep pits but it does wonders on small pits and making the metal look better. Not for high grade guns but more for low value type guns and military surplus. There are different colors. Sticking with one of the matte colors (eg, matte black) will do the best cover-up. The secrets are to clean the metal meticulously and spray in light mist coats rather than trying to do it all at one. Brownell's has videos on application.

Media blasting will cover some minor pitting. Should be done before Cerakote anyway. Doing a barrel as such should be around $100. On this gun mentioned, even if there are some pits showing, not a big deal. Then again if you want to pay more for working them out you could also.
