Tore it down and cleaned it today.
Noticed these markings on the barrel.
Normal? If not what could be the cause?
Could very well be your spring, but I'm really not too certain. If they're actual scratches or small gouges call Springfield. If their surface scratches or "normal" wear type marks I wouldn't worry about it.

Yea I'm not too happy about the wear on my barrel, but as long as the projectile goes in the intended direction then that's all that matters.
Here are a few pics of wear on my barrel. Keep in mind there's around 5k-6k rounds through my barrel and it still shoots straight. The "wear" developed from the first 500-600 rounds and has in a way hit a plateau and hasn't worsened. Doesn't bother me.
