View Full Version : Barrel bore treatments .. ???

Barrels like the J&J ceramic do a good job of clearing broken paint because of the bores Ceramic/Teflon coating :p

Can you treat the bore of a conventional barrel with Automotive Wax, Rain-X or Silicone spray ?

** I did a search and found no info on the subject.

Thanks in advance.

Rain X has been used quite a bit, but the results haven't really been tested. However, you have to reapply it quite often as the residue from the outside of the ball tends to wear it away awfully fast. I wouldn't use Automotive wax or silicone spray because of the inherent pains they can cause - sticky buildup, dirt buildup, etc. Best just to buy a good barrel to begin with and let it do it's job.
