My 1996 German P226 is the same way but if I look close enough in the light I can see wear areas in the same spot.

That is normal wear.

in the op's pic,you don't really need a lot of light to see what appear to be gouges on the top & outer corners of the aft part of the hood, on a supposedly new sig, from the way i see the pic.

on my sigs that i looked at, i see the scuffing outline you mention, just not the gouging.

Either it's totally normal or I got the same problem you do. I vote "normal".

I agree. On the picture it really looks like gouging but the surface is smooth and the corners are fine. It's probably the light. I think I overreacted. It happens with me. I'm really anal [type A personality].
Here are two more pictures with better angle

Hell, all my guns have that mark (especially the Sig's) just by staring at them for two minutes in the gunshop...all except my glocks admittedly. something about their tennifer (is it tennifer finishing on their barrels?) that seems to stay pristine..hmm.

Otherwise totally normal and totally nothing to be concerned about. Just looked in my gun-case and all 5 of my sigs have them and I'm pretty sure I brought all these new pistols home with that wear marking on all of them.

That scuffing is not original or peculiar to Sigs. It's just cosmetic. My own 2022, which already has 1,000 or 1,500 rounds downrange, is showing it. Purely cosmetic, IMO. Gun is still running like poop through a goose.

Put a very light dab of grease on there and spread it out with little kid's paintbrush from the hobby store if you like. But as long as that barrel hood is smooth to the touch, you're fine. I've seen actual galling before. This ain't it.

Normal, in fact, each Sig will develop its own wear personality as well as having some common personalities.

Mine's the same way. I'm not worrying about it. Looks like everybody else has them too. Just like the wrinkles I have.....character lines!!

It looks normal to me - all of my Sigs have similar wear patterns. In the Sig video on cleaning and lubing your
Sig, it says to put a little lube where you see any wear. That's what I do!

Then you must not shoot them or you baby the hell out of them because all my guns have some kind of mark there
