i would soak the barrel in hoppes! it would do no good to soak the snake, and unless you have feet like a teradactyl i would advise against that!!!

People shoot glocks with sand and mud in them. There is no damage to your gun. Shoot it and be a happy owner.

I tried to clean the heck out of it. Soaked it in Hoppes 9 bushed, lather rinse repeat. I still see the marks. :-(

I think it might be scratched. If not the boresnake then I don't know what it is from. I mightnbe able to shoot tomorrow or Sunday. I'll post my shooting results.

I got a Beretta 92 FS Inox about two months ago, and while cleaning it last night I noticed the same marks in the barrel where the cartridge enters. My guess it that it is normal now as I didn't do to the 92 what I accidentally did to the Glock.

Take a tight fitting Jag and patch and some JB Bore paste and try polishing the marked area. If ti's a chatter mark from manufacturing or a flaw in the rifleing the bore paste will not remove it. However if it's fouling it will come out with the bore paste.
I have had several pistols in various brands show severe fouling in the bores over the last couple of years from one particular brand of ammo. And it is tough to remove, I mean real tough and none of the copper solvents I have tried has had any effect on the fouling, and I tried them all. If it is fouling be prepared to scrub real hard and long.
Good Luck

Why did Glock several years ago start using rifled bbl's instead of using the polygonal bbl exclusively?
