Gouged barrel

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I have a Benelli Atlanta in .32 S&W Long Wadcutter. This is one of a pair of pistols that I recently purchased used (the other is the same pistol in .22LR).

I've just observed that the barrel is gouged - it could be that someone tried to remove an obstruction from the breech end and hit the side of the barrel, pushing up a little fin at the end of the gouge. The gouge is probable 1/2" to 3/4" from the muzzle.

What can be done about this (besides getting a new barrel). Is there a way to iron down the fin? I don't think the gouge can be repaired, but removing the little fin might help this little pistol shoot.

Thanks for any suggestions!

I'd be tempted to put a few lapping loads through it and see if that helps.

If you're not familiar with the process, do a search on 'firelapping' in the forum for some great info.
