is this normal?

New German Sig p226 I put around 150 rounds through it and the bottom of the barrel feed ramp is 2 little grooves where the metal looks like its hitting something, they are really tiny grooves now. I haven't had any problems yet not one failure. I'm just wondering if its normal for this to happen?

If you zoom in you can really see it.

Can you post a picture of the locking block as well?

Looking at a zoomed photo, I am having some difficulty seeing it clearly enough to determine what may be there with confidence. Can you get more light on the subjet and get some different angles?

The feed ramp looks ok but the bottom is what I'm worried about.

The bottom of the feed ramp looks like its hitting on the edge of the piece under it, I didn't think the barrel moved that far up to even hit that edge.

Could it have been from using cheap ammo?

I thought that is what you were refering to in the original picture, just wanted to be sure.

That is a condition that I have not seen. I too thought that the forward travel would not have gone to the front edge of the locking block. It almost looks like some where along the way it was mis-assembled and bound up. Can't figure out how because I tried to get that amount of travel out of both of my 226's and came no where close. I do want to add, though, that the wear marks on my locking blocks go all the way to the front edge.

It does not look like it would have any effect on feeding, but it does look like it "could" catch on the locking block.

My suggestion would be to send the pictures and a description to Sig customer service and see what they have to say.

You may need to call them first to get the appropriate email address.

Just bought a P229 Enhanced Elite 9mm, I think I am having somewhat of the same issue....How did this end for you, did you contact Sig and if so what did they suggest or do for you. I noticed it just putting my slide back on after cleaning.
