What caused the damage? I am planning on swapping out the piston/spring in my 495 for a spring/piston/seal 800 kit....
Is there anything I should do to avoid this from happening?

This item is not currently available

I think you need to goto napa/carquest for brake hone.

The hones from princess auto don't go small enough to fit inside a phantom tube anyway.

I just use a wooden dowel with sand paper on it. And spin it like trying to start a fire, down and up.

leadslinger ty ! .. the one time that using bold actually helped .. lmao they should've done that on the web site too. Since it was my oversight I just called em .. sadly it is outside their working hours. apologies for the misinfo folks ! Broke up with a Moly once - she wasn't as 'available' as I thought.

The hone is adjustable (dia.) The store I was in had about 10 of them on the shelf.

I have the same hone. It fits inside the compression tube of a B3.

If it were me I'd do nothing to it rather than use that hone. They can't do the entire tube nor can they get the very end at the breech. Seems like they might leave a bit of a rough surface too, but depends on your grit of course. I use sandpaper onna stick as seen in the pix, works way better, grit is your choice, it's cheap, fits all guns etc. They don't really need sanding unless damaged, but I sand them anyway to help keep the seal and buttons lubed.
Msit: The op's gun was a very unusual case so I wouldn't worry about it happening to yours. I saw your other post btw, and I'd be sure you need a piston before buying that expensive kit. You may only need a spring and seal which are ~$15 total. If your piston is long you have the option to cut it down rather than buy, but that's up to you.

I agree with Chevota regarding the use (or should I say, not using) a 3-finger brake hone....too easy to catch an edge of a slot, chip or break one (or more) of the stones & end up making a bigger mess of the tube than what it was before starting.

When I picked up my Benji Trail Hardwoods NP a few years back, it had some nasty burrs which quickly trashed the factory piston seal... :( . After researching & asking questions on how to fix the issue (and being advised NOT to use a brake hone) I picked up a ball hone (or flex hone as it's sometimes called) from Acklunds Grainger. It is only 8" OAL, so ended up using a 12" extension bit for the drill to reach bottom of tube. Once set screws were tightened on extension, I just put a couple wraps of electrical tape around "fat" part of extension to prevent any marring of the tube in case it made contact while spinning in drill (shouldn't touch anyways, but just in case... :wink: )

Worked like a charm!
