I'm assuming this is normal

Just got it. Looking through the pictures of the guns here it's hard to see the top. I'm just assuming this is normal wear. I did not shoot it yet, but they do it at the factory.

That could be from just racking the slide multiple times. Be sure to keep that surface lubed to avoid excessive wear in that area. My 2022 developed those wear marks within minutes of me racking my slide during my first function check.

Perfectly normal. Only way you will find a gun without that mark is to buy one that has never been racked even once.

it looks like your wear pattern is in a different spot, how's that.

The barrel hood on my new 220 Compact came in a "natural" finish, i.e. no finish on it....so there is no visible wear!
