I with you rafsob, if it's gonna happen it'll happen to me. Im so used to things happening to me that I just expect it.
Im also with why did they put the weathershiled on it in the first place, a SS Barrel is fine as is.
I also would expect the finish to come off in that area where the barrel would make contac with the receiver. It's a coating and coatings come off with rub, contac and wear. I feel for you and know you love that ML.
Even if CVA replaces it I'd suspect te same will happen with the next.
