P.s.: 9mm, 4.6" barrel. If the explanation given by Walther is accurate, I do not see this to be a problem, but these spots look like more than a few microns (millionths of a meter) thick (unless the underlying surface is a dull black color). To clean, I've only used Break-Free CLP (twice, sparingly), and Ballistol.

It appears there's minor cracking over the entire circumference.

Do yourself a favor before contacting Walther warranty...... get a brass bore brush for 9mm, wet the bore & brush with your CLP & vigorously clean the barrel bore. After 4 or 5 passes with the brush, run a patch through & you'll probably see black on it from what you missed cleaning. Keep repeating the process until the patch comes out clean after a run through with the brush. Then, take a look at the bore & it might be fine.


Whatever Walther uses in their barrels seems to make it harder ( for me, anyway ) to get them clean. My CZs & Sig clean up with much less work.

So that's what the brass brushes are for .


Thanks, it worked wonders. I had spent more than an hour trying to scrub it away with cotton and Ballistol.

Brass brushes are your friends! Glad it worked out.

Most people buy Walther Firearms for the German quality and reputation of Walther so if the quality is bad or the customer service is poor business will be affected. A product is a product so it does not matter if it is the flagship model or the budget model and margins have no relevance except to business owner.

Walther, your customers are watching and waiting to see how this will be resolved.

The resolution in this case was more cleaning by the owner, no?
