Is there anyway to repair breach wear?

I have an older gun that has some breach wear with scratches and normal wear. Is there anyway to repair it with a polishing or something? Thanks!

Not really. The anno is a pigmented layer of oxidation. Polishing it won't remove the wear. I still don't understand people's obsession with breach wear though because it doesn't really hurt anything.

It's not really a concern for me just mildly irritating. It's my first marker and I'm just trying to restore it as best as I can.

Restore it? The best you can do is just keep dirt and debris from getting in the breach

Breach wear does not affect paintballs, only the bolt. No reason to worry about it. It's going to happen again after you anno it.

reanno.

my new 07 borg has been kept in great condition but some sand from texas found it's way in and did a lil' damage. didn't break completely thru the anno 15 cases later so i should be fine. may reanno it with a 2 fade and some top gun or cowboy bebop laser engraving soon

it really wont make a diffrence in performance if you really want the breach gone, replace the whole body piece, then you start fresh.
