when i bought the 220c3-sss-45 it had been on display for 11 months & showed a little wear.
i asked about a discount for wear/tear & they lopped off 5%.
acceptable because this was 1 of 40, sold only by sportsman's warehouse.
never hurts to ask.

have not fired this weapon yet..I'll contact the dealer and see what they have to say.
I should have gone with my gut and ordered new as I usually do, but I guess i had a case of "ohhhh I've gotta have this NOW"

glocke12, Your 226 looks fine. Congratulations on your purchase. ALL guns are test fired,
not just those going to states that require "ballistic fingerprinting". The paper band was
most likely removed when it was put on display and while it's exciting to cut them off a
new gun, they are not very durable, and get dirty quickly from handling. If you want to
be sure the gun wasn't sold and returned, tell your dealer you want to see his acquisition/disposition record where it will show whether he received the gun from a distributor or an individual. Your name should be listed in the column "sold to". By the way, it's against federal law to sell a used gun as new.

I am pretty confident now that everything is just shop and handling wear. From looking at photos others have posted I saw a few that showed similar wear patterns on brand new guns. Plus, if it had been fired other than at the factory than the magazine would show signs of rounds having been loaded into it, and that is not the case.
Part of what made me paranoid is that there was a shop I frequented years ago with an indoor range (since shut down), that had employees that were caught shooting new guns on the range, and in some cases removing them from the shop, using them, than returning them. SInce than I have always made it a point of ordering guns new in the box when I can.
Now, who can point me towards a holster for this puppy?

Everything you describe (#1 and # 3) is what I have seen when I received my new MK25. I wouldn't worry about it. I've come to the conclusion that the special coating on the barrel and internals is not scratch resistant, as many of the pics I've seen have had the same wear. clean it, use it and enjoy it. It's the best shooting gun I have ever owned.
