They appear to have depth, similar to an orange peel.

I liked an orange peal surface on the bottom (pad) of my race boat.....it reduced friction. Maybe the same holds true with the barrel....idk, just a guess.

Was the bore like that when you bought it?

The response i am reading from Walther, in regards to the OPs Q45 bbl. sure does not make me feel good about how Walther has handled the inspection.
Since the Q45 is fairly new, i would expect a lot deeper inspection and a full report about it.

What's wrong with Walther's response? The barrel in the pics looks fine. At worst it looks like the plating isn't mirror finished.

Is Walther supposed to provide a full engineering analysis every time a new customer / shooter over-reacts?

Let me state that differently; the pics don't show an issue as drastic as the OP has stated. I've taken a lot of pics of barrels when I put guns on GB (lots of clear pics = more money) and have gotten good ones and not so good. Assuming this pic is just overexposed it appears fine and like a normal barrel would with pic overexposed.

Walther needs to find a good quality bore scope, and really inspect the OPs Q45 bbl.
Pictures taken of what can be taken with a digital camera are almost worthless if they even have any use in finding a problem.

Per OP Walther had the gun in their factory. You don't need a bore scope to inspect a pistol barrel, especially when the shooter is complaining of visual defects. Until OP posts some good quality pics I have no reason think he's not overreacting and Walthers not correct.

This isn't the first post about a bad barrel from Walther. Wasnt there a gentleman over seas who had one with pitting?

Walther already said they saw it and said it wouldn't cause any functionality issues. If you had pitts in your slide covered by the finish, would you ask Walther if they would fix it?
