Annodized. If you aren't careful you might end up with a barrel tip that's rough inside and can impart a spin on the ball as it leaves.

I'd have to guess sand and polish to a mirror finish; but only at the very edge where you made your cut. You'll never match the original finish. I'd leave it be if it were me, or just buy a shorter barrel.
