got new barrel, are those tool-marks?

OK check this out got new barrel replacement for tomato stake I had before, this one is one of those high end makers should be hand-lapped, but I'm puzzled looking inside of it, take a look...









should I expect great accuracy from it, or send it back ?

Just lookin' at the ends tells very little as they are trimmed off before chambering and crowning. What lies another inch or so further into the tube would be what matters.

I'm assuming this is just a barrel blank and not a pre-threaded, pre-chambered barrel. The blank will get at least 1" cut off the muzzle end and the chamber end will get opened up by the reamer. It's hard to tell by the photos but it will probably be fine after it's cut and crowned.

Using a piloted tool to cut the crown will leave some tracks, they are usually superficial but look bad since they are on a smoother surface. I would contact the barrel manufacture and get the story from the horses mouth!

Check the WHOLE length of the barrel with a bore scope, if it looks like that send it back. Sometimes the pilot on a crowning tool will make marks like that and the operator of the tool if at fault. It happens and it can be repaired by cutting off the barrel a inch or so. If the WHOLE bore looks like that chances that it will shoot are slim to none. I have one like that, we use it for a high lift jack handle. A $320 high lift jack handle.
