Question about used P226 9mm
I'm relatively new to Sig's and brand new to this forum so I'd appreciate any advice you could provided.
I recently purchased a used P226 9mm from a local gun store. While I was cleaning it I noticed a notch broken out or missing from the slide where the recoil spring and guide sit. Pictures provided below.
Is this normal for Sigs and if not is this something I should have checked out buy a certified Sig Armorer?
If I didn't supply enough info please let me know what I missed.
Thanks for the help

In my opinion, not an issue
I have one with a similar profile and it has never been an issue. It is in a non functional area between the barrel and the guide rod. Most likely if it were not broken out the slide would not cycle properly due to the fact that the barrel would not be able to tilt properly.
Unsightly, yes; cause for concern, no.

Wow thanks for the fast responses!
Reading the link Reliable posted it sounds like it is supposed to be rounded out there but not jagged. It's in otherwise great condition with just a couple of "smiley faces" on the barrel.
I doubt the place I bought it would take it back so I might call Sig Customer Service and see what they have to say.
Not knowing exactly how many rounds the previous owner shot is there a way to tell when the recoil spring needs to be replaced or would you suggest doing it as general maintenance on a used gun?
The gun is a joy to shoot and I've put about 500 rounds though it with no issues or miss-fires.
Thanks again for all the help!
