    You could fill them in but the firearm would still be UNUSABLE. Those are holes in the barrel and a barrel is a piece of specific steel or Stainless Steel that is precision machined to .0001" tolerances.

    If the chamber is done as well there is no way to fix that either as the chamber supports an explosion.

    Sorry, that's one way of how they de-mil a gun so it can't be fired again. The only way to fix that is to have the piece re-barreled with a replacement part.

    my equipment

    there is no chance to replace whole barrel with new one

    I have a short piece of semi-factured barrel, but I dont how to replace just that part with 3 holes

    I can also make a strong steel bandage ( a tube around the drilled part of the barrel) and I also have a welder to fill these holes

    Is it possible to cut the drilled part, replace it and fix it with a welder, than cover this part with a strong steel bandage and also fix the bandage with a welder ?

    Nein ist es nicht sicher. Der Stahl ist wärme behandelt gewesen. Schweißen wird die Wärmebehandlung ändern.

    It would not be safe. The steel has been heat treated. Welding will change the heat treatment.

    Apologies for my poor German.

    doing the above will certainly result in injury or death of the shooter.
    I don't know how to get the message accross any stonger. you are dealing with High pressure 50,000 psi and up. DON"T DO IT!!!!

    Sicherheit!
    Safety!
    The only way to fix this is with another barrel.

    There's NO WAY you could safely repair that barrel. Get another barrel or use that firearm as a wallhanger.

    Also, Isn't a permit required to own Firearms in Germany? You might be risking a violation of the Firearms Laws of your Country.

    I'll echo all of these guys....get a new barrel. There is no way to safely repair that.

    holes in barrel

    Has nothing to do with OP's question, and I suspect since he lives in Germany he knows the laws

    Germany does require permits, but also allows repairs to firearms.
