A close-up picture of the handguard/bayo lug showing the rusting/blueing results would be helpful.
Would love to see some pics of your gun.
How is your gun set up for a magazine band? I'd think if you're talking about adding a plug it may be set up with a "normal barrel band." Might do some more research on it to find out if it may have indeed been a "real" Riot Gun" made with a Trench Gun barrel (might be a very rare beast).
