Yup, swab down the outer tube, anything could be in there, including powder residue and rust.

Clean the brass inner tube with a 0000 wool pad, make that brass shine. Then put on with your fingers, a very very very thin layer of grease, preferably automotive axle grease for its properties.

Also roll the magazine tube on a table to make sure its straight. Like you would a pool cue. The brass mags can be slightly bent out of shape easily.
