Opinion on this? Just purchased barrel from well known supplier of used beretta auto parts on forums. Waiting on an answer from him. Was pitched as “mint” which it most certainly is not. Wondering if I can use a few wraps of Teflon tape if I’m stuck with the barrel

Chuck a bronze brush in a drill and clean it up. Tough to tell from the pic, but looks like a non issue to me.

I emailed you a couple of better quality pics you can zoom in on. I will try the brush I can’t hurt at this point

If you cannot return it for refund, send to Briley to re thread it.

I can’t post the most high resolution pic, but after cleaning up better the dark spot in the back appears to be where there was some erosion, it was rust where the chroming eroded. The jagged looking threads are just that - some type of damage from a stuck or blown out tube I suppose I have never seen anything like it.

I sent pics to seller by email we’ll see

After cleaning the threads as best as you can , a thread chaser should straighten the out of line
ones for a better fit ! If all else fails , screw in a Mod or LMod and call it good . I hope you got a
good deal on that barrel , enjoy it the best as you can !

I have had a couple rust like that. They usually clean up with a bronze brush and wd40or solvent. Let it soak for a bit.

If the choke goes in and tightens normally it should be fine.

Seller offered to return and refund I just as soon do so ... if kept tight may be fine but if you don’t check it literally every shot one would almost certainly shoot the tube out.

Just an update - after closer inspection and a visit to my gunsmith, the threads are functional. If I tighten the choke with a wrench it won’t budge. Using a little Teflon tape instead of grease, it doesn’t move.
