Anno wear after one day.

I have quite a bit of anno wear on the end of my barrel after one day of play. I don't understand. It's quite of bit. And where it's wore is gold looking. It looks like brass. Anybody else have this problem? It's on a '12 Invasion. Not sure if it's a bad anno or what. Or why it's gold looking instead of aluminium looking?

what color/colors is/are your marker anodized? and does the other end of the marker fade into yellow, gold or green?

If you rub the barrel on trees, rocks, lumber.....stuff like that it can wear out pretty quick. My guess is the gold color you see is just a layer of the color of your gun. Hard to say without seeing it.

It's a stock black and green invasion. And it was an airball field. No rocks trees or otherwise. Grass and bunkers.

Marker is off getting laser engraved. Just wondering if anybody else ever had this problem. Like there was a bad batch I didn't know about or something.

The gloss green on my Invasion also does this, especially around the trigger. I kinda like the gold color it becomes.

I used to play with a guy who went out of his way to only use a gun that looked like crap. He'd buy worn parts and put them on his gun. Mismatched colors......whatever it took. It was his thing lol. He was like the Sonic Youth of paintball..........went out of his way to make things messed up lol.
