Greetings,

Lately I have noticed several MILSURPS with very shiny bores.
But when you run a patch thru them, there is grease or something still present.
Does anyone know what makes the bore shine like a mirror, but still have a layer of crud present?

This might be a way for unscrupulous dealers to pass off a bad bore, so some extra caution might be a good idea.

When I first got my o3/38 turk, it had a mirror bore, but as soon as I started cleaning it wiht hoppes, I literally had scales of copper and falling out of the bore. Also, Hoppes leaves a light oil residue which does make lthe bore look shinier ans smoother than it actually is.
