P239 rail wear opinion

Hello again. A while back I managed another Sig, a used P239 in .40. As near as I can figure, it's BOD falls between '97 and '03 which, from what I understand, was a great era for Sigs. The pistol is in terrific shape overall with little outside/carry wear or any obvious nicks, dings or dents anywhere. Overall finish is just fine. My question has to do with frame rail wear which we all know has been talked to death. In general the rails are good with a few minor worn areas on top and toward the muzzle end which I believe is a given with the Sigs. There is no excessive galling or abrasion anywhere. However, in the most important area, under the frame rails along the inside corner---and the best I can describe it without the capability to do photos at the moment---there is a thin, fine wear line running intermittently the length of the rails. Again, it is not wide, just looks as if someone took a fine needle point and ran it along the underside of the rails. The color has maybe just a touch of bright silver to it but there is also a haze of goldish to it also in places. I have not fired the weapon yet. My sense is that after it's properly lubed, it should last longer than me but.....what do you think? Sorry for the wordy descrption. Thanks for your help.

Bearone, as I mentioned in my post...I am unable to. I was hoping that my description would suffice.

In the stickys above us is an Inspection guide that will tell you all you need to know. As the rails wear they go thru several colors including silver and gold.
I think grease em good and you have nothing to worry about. My 229 will outlive me without question.
