Scrtches in barrel

Hi guys. Recently I noticed some scratches inside my 2 years PDI 6.01 barrel (palpable by a plastic toothpick, 2cm from output) and im woring what I can do with this. It still shoot quite accurate (I attachment my grouping: 2 series by 6 shots, 0.4 BLS 2.6j, distance 30m) but I think after polishing it could be better.
But i dont know how to do this by proper way, it mean - only put some polish paste on cotton patch and slide it by rod many times or should I use drill for do this? Someone from you had this problem (scrathed barrel) and resolvet it?

I've seen it, but I still don't know if it's enough for removing scratches from the barrel, and which tools and technics they are best for this

unless you have some serious scratches, and i am talking gouges from ramming metal objects into your barrel to clean it or unjam it, then a cleaning rod with a patch soaked in a metal polish or polishing compound will do the trick. I use these loaded with a compound (though I use one made by Hoppe's, same thing though). I use green, red, and blue polishing compounds depending on what I am polishing. See here.

That chart is pretty much universal, but I would still double check with where your buying from.

Though if you are not experiencing any major accuracy problems, it may not be worth the trouble.

Edit:
One last thing, if you really want to do it, is to lap the barrel. Though I would send it off to someone who knows what they are doing for that. Just know it will not be an 01 when you get it back. It will be closer to an 05 most times.

Edit 2:
Thinking about it, one of these would likely work well too.

Ok thank you for answer :) But i have question: how are you doing this proces? Do you rotate rod by drill or you push it along barrel, like 100 pushes, quarter turn and another 100 and so on.

Diameter will be changed so much even by slight polishing for scratches removing?

Really depends on which method you do and how bad those scratches actually are. Most polishing will remove material, a very small amount though usually not enough to change specs. I was predominantly talking about lapping.

When I do barrel work I put mine in my mini lathe for better rpm control. A drill will work fine, just dont crash it into your barrel. I would also wrap or coat your metal parts of your polishing bits in something so those do not scratch your finished surfaces.
