Here is what I did - and I hope Bill weighs in on this.
I used a small bit of emory cloth taped on a dowel and carefully and slowly rid the bottom tube of the bur and then used an old battle swab and some polish (Brasso) to smooth that area back. I would wager I barely took off any material as the anno was barely polished in all areas that was not the burr.
TF,I don't have a clue.I haven't heard of this till now.Untill we get a marker back and inspect it,it would be difficult to say what is causing it.
I would think dry lubes in the lower tube would be better than oils or grease as they don't attract and hold dirt and grit? I am just guessing at what is going on.As far as the burrs goes??
One question.Is this a polished gun or dusted?
