I'm afraid I disagree with both Conor (again ;-) )and Dave re the internal plating coming off or wearing off! as a time served engineer I know that the nickle plating used inside the barrel is a LOT harder than the barrel material itself. The plating is applied by electrolysis and is only microns thick. It will "wear in" but shouldn't unless there is a manufacturing fault wear off. My barrel has had probably around 10,000 pellets through it yet it still needs cleaning after no more than 200 shots or it groups like a 12 bore! I may be totally wrong here and stand to be corrected by someone who knows better (Steyr themselves)
