    I don't remember seeing people use Scotch Brite pads but then again I am old and could be forgetting. Most have used the appropriate caliber honing brush from Brush Research.

    Scotch Brite pads will do nothing....you need a flex hone. 400 grit. You get them here: Rifle Brushes, Flex Hone, Gun Brushes

    You can use their honing oil or Mobil 1 or similar....

    I never had the firing pin hole issue.....I'm guessing you need to chamfer the hole itself, but I have no idea how much or the proper process. There should be threads here on the site to tell you how.

    Sorry to hear about your experience with your XCR-L.....unfortunately, I had the same problems and it took a good 9+ months to get it sorted. Looking back, it was worth the trouble, but I understand your frustration.

    HTH,
    Sean

    Oh, and your bbl IS chrome lined. The XCR-M has some SS bbls....but chrome has recently become available. The L has always been chrome lined. Oh, and don't worry about the lining....the hone will just polish the surface, take our irregularities, etc....but my understanding is it likely won't require you to cut through the surface coating of the chrome.
