Default Band Shadow

Anybody have an idea on how to remove/diminish the shadow left behind when you remove a type 3 band? I've tried chemical cleaning with various agents and steaming with no luck.

Dave,

Thanks for the info but I mean the shadow left on the barrel (darker in the front, lighter in the back under the band). Does the dishwasher work for that, too?

Nope. Out of the 7 CMP Carbines I have run thru the dishwasher (metal only) only 1 had a type 1 band, all the others had type 3's....all still had the shadow present after the bath. None of the shadows changed before/after.....

The shadow is the result of wear, not dirty or oil. The only way to get rid of it is to strip the finsh off the barrel and repark it.

Wood bleach. You can buy it at a woodworking store like Woodcrafters. I have used it several times and it works just fine.

Man, I am so sorry. When you said band shadow I automatically assumed you meant on the wood. Yeah on the barrel it would need to be reparked.
