I have a 375 Win. factory barrel. I bought the barrel new in the box and it had no frame marks from use which seems to confirm that it actually was new. The barrel has all stampings and markings including caliber on the barrel and lug just like any other factory T/C barrel.

Here is the unusual thing. The recess for the case rim and the chamber are not blued, just plain old shiny metal. Even the extractor is not blued in the groove for the case rim. The rifled part of the barrel is blued inside.

The barrel shoots great. I am curious though since all 7 of my other barrels are fully blued even in the recess for the case rim and the chamber. This one just looks stange to me every time I clean it.

Does anyone else have a factoty barrel that is not blued in these areas?

Thanks.
