Nobody can see the internal mark in the barrel that has the transmission, and after I've assembled the cap components into the top barrel I just clean up inside the open end of the brass tube with some 320 or 400 grit sandpaper.
Thats definately a solution. I never thought of marking them inside. I will definately start marking them though. I sand the ends of my finished barels and I hate picking one up and then trying to remember which end went where.
