Steve -I had a horn stripped and re-laquered by Tom Green recently and he told me the new laquer is very tough. I had asked about using a hand guard and he said it wasn't needed and I didn't need to worry about how I cleaned my horn.

If the finish is coming off on your hands then something is wrong. The "Lacquer" finishes of today are very tough. Not really Lacquer but a baked on Acrylic finish. So something is wrong about the finish. If it is a black nickel finish it wouldn't have a lacquer finish. Sounds like a home done spray can job that is coming off on your hands.
Do you play sharp on other horns? that's the first question that needs to be asked. Sounds like you don't play sharp on other horns because you noticed it on this one. My slide pull is the same no all my horns. Regardless of key or type. I would take the horn to a good repair tech. Also have a good player play the horn to chack it out.
Then go from there.

I don't know, but I feel like the OP is making a big deal out of pulling out the tuning slide a bit. Just play the thing.
