    So a friend of mine bought a PTR .308 Pistol...the gun externally and internally looks almost brand new but when he took the handguard off he found an issue. The finish on the barrel...part of the barrel...is bubbled up and flaking off. The gun was sold as having only had a few mags through it while the owner was making a video reviewing it.

    I assume this isn't normal...is it some type of cover-up? 98119356_378854509722916_985131657931522048_n.jpg 99107237_801008000435494_1609259791236988928_n.jpg 99123237_335657930738657_3693784041925902336_n.jpg 99242793_563894454537051_4341661639276232704_n.jpg

    Not normal but if the hand guard covers it then it really doesn't matter much.

    Choot it! Then tell him to make it into a real G3k :D Hopefully he got an older one with 15x1 RH thread pitch.

    kind of what I figured. He said the barrel looks great so there is no concern about that

    I see what you did there.
    I'll will see your G3k and raise it with an MSG90.
    Please tell me you have an HK21E, XM8 Ral8000 or PSG1 to make this really interesting! I will gladly fold to those :D.

    No, but the fact the G3K is a registered receiver should.
